Tell us more about you and your blog

I started COLOR by K (Living In Color Print at the time) in 2012 as a way to connect with fellow creatives in my community. It’s since grown into a full-time business and something I’m truly proud to look at as a successful small business.

What people don’t realize about blogging is…

It’s HARD WORK. All the time. It never ‘shuts off’, and there’s no such thing as ‘vacation’.

What are 3 things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?

  1. How much work goes into it.
  2. How important investing in your photography is.
  3. How to be a better accountant for myself. Ha – still working on improvements here.

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

Teaming up with a travel app and traveling to NYC, London + Milan for fashion week. Such a dream come true! A real ‘pinch myself’ moment.

Give us your best tip for maintaining a blog work/life balance

Have specific ‘no phone’ timeframes. I try to not look at my phone for at least an hour before bedtime, and never at dinner.

Instagram or Twitter?

Instagram

Coffee or tea?

Tea

Who is the most interesting person you’ve ever met?

Mr. Jim Downing. He’s a WWII Veteran (and family friend), recently passed, but at age 103 could hold a witty conversation – so full of life and lessons. I could chat with him for hours.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Bad TV. Like Jersey Shore status….

What’s one product you can’t live without?

Eyebrow pencil

What’s been your favorite post you’ve worked on?

My Blogger to Blogger Series! I’ve received countless emails over the years from interested bloggers, or soon to be bloggers, looking for advice. It’s nice to be able to give back, since those resources weren’t really available when I started.

We love our apps, which ones do you swear by for your business?

Snapseed for photo editing

Who do you love to follow on social media?

I LOVE following Kensington Palace on IG – so fun seeing their lives play out on a day-to-day.
