Tell us more about you and your blog
I started Lefty Living Life in 2012 as a creative outlet. I was on the cusp of graduating from high school and didn’t know what direction I wanted my life to take. Throughout my time in college, my blog served not only as a way for me to explore writing but also as a way for me to explore fashion as I began to develop my own unique style. Now, as I pursue a career, Lefty Living Life has continued to help me express myself creatively through fashion, food, and my daily life.

What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?

Give us your best tip for maintaining a blog work/life balance?
Planning. Trying to post on your blog and do all of it on the fly while working and having a social life never works. You have to be organized and plan your posts ahead of time and utilize your free time when you have it.
Instagram or Twitter?
Coffee or tea?
