After lusting over each and every outfit that blogger Amy from Amy Valentine blogs about, we thought it was about time to catch up with the pink-haired beauty to talk all things fashion, music and blog related. Once you have finished reading the interview, make sure you check out Amy’s blog!

HTF: How long have you been blogging and what made you start a blog?

A: I’ve been blogging for a bit over two years now, doesn’t feel like that long though!  I actually used to run a jewellery business and made a blog for that, then discovered personal blogs and wanted to start one of my own – so I did!

HTF: We absolutely love your style! How would you describe your style, and is there someone you look up to for inspiration?

A: I’d say my style hints at masculine grunge but I always find a way to add a feminine touch.  I don’t have any particular fashion icons, I get a lot of my style inspiration from other bloggers.

HTF: Who is your favourite designer/brand and why?

A: One of my most favourite brands is Ashish, because of their incredible ‘out there’ designs with such intricate detail – although their stuff is a little out of my price range!  Most of my clothes are from Topshop, Urban Outfitters and Primark, but I like to charity shop when I can, and eBay is great for cheap clothes!

HTF: Which is that one item in your wardrobe that you can’t live without?

A:  It’s hard to name one particular item as a favourite – I’d probably have to say my creepers as, although they’ve had their day and everyone and their mum now has a pair, mine have lasted me over 2 years now and are still going strong after being worn pretty much every day!

HTF: What’s on your current wishlist?

A: UNIF and Jeffrey Campbell items are always on my wishlist, but at the moment I am seriously obsessed with the oil slick shoes by To Be Announced!

HTF: As well as fashion, you seem to be a massive fan of music. Do you think the two go hand in hand nowadays?

A: Music is a huge part of my life and I’d say it definitely influences my style choices.  My outfits can often be a little unpredictable, with dark lipstick and spiky shoes one day then floral crowns and pastel skirts the next – this is down to my mood, which in turn may be controlled by the music I’ve been listening to, as I’m very adventurous – sticking to one music genre is way too boring!

HTF: What are some of your favourite bands/musicians?

A: My favourite bands and artists include Bring Me The Horizon, Sleeping with Sirens, Of Mice and Men, While She Sleeps and Brand New, to name a fee.  But truth be told I’ve been a bit obsessed with Queen lately!

HTF: What advice would you give to those who want to start their own blog?

A: My advice would be to work hard – it’s tough starting a blog but it can be done – keep layout minimalistic with simple colours and take photos in natural light – you don’t need a pro camera to be a good blogger!

HTF: Finally, what blogs would you recommend our readers to check out?

A: Some of my favourite blogs include: I Hate Blonde, Effiesmakeupbox, Waiste and Glam, but there are so many more that I love!
