Blogging //

How did you come up with your blog name?

It's kind of funny, because I didn't come up with it! It was something that I was called in my business classes, I loved it, and it's become my brand!

When & why did you start your blog?

I started my blog in the summer of 2014 just a month before Chris and I started dating! A Classy Fashionista came to life, because my friends from college and in my hometown would always be asking me the same style and beauty questions, so instead of repeating myself a million times, I decided to start a blog that answered their questions! As the months flew by and now years, it's something that I love and will always love to do!

Do you have any tips for new bloggers?

Yes! I have tons! I just wrote this post: Ten Tips + Advice For Every New Blogger, with tons of advice and tips to help you be as successful as you can be. Be sure to check it out!

How do you get paid to blog?

I get paid through various blogging networks and also directly from brands that I have reached out to or that have reached out to me for collaboration. I share more about this in this blog post.

Are your sponsored posts genuine?

YES--110%. I would never recommend a product or service on my blog unless I truly love and use it myself. I do my best to create my sponsored posts to flow in a way that doesn't come across as sponsored, because I truly do love the products & services I chat about on ACF, and I want to share them with you!

Who takes your photos?

If I'm not in the picture, I've taken it! So, I take all flat lays and product photos. If I'm in the picture, my amazing blogger hubby takes them for me!

What camera do you use?

I use the Canon Rebel T5 with a 50mm lens. (affiliate links)

I also use my iPhone 12 for most of my in-the-moment content.

What do you use to curl your hair?

I use the T3 1-inch curling wand and brush out the curls after they cool for bouncy, voluminous curls.
