With Margot Moore’s love for fashion, food, and life, we immediately knew we’d get along just great. Her life in Melbourne, Australia only serves to spike our interest more. Her passion for health and fitness speaks volumes in her writing. Margot’s originality, and creativity allows for her to give only the best fashion advice out there! She provides us with warm, down to earth responses as we delved deeper into who she really was. Here’s what we learned!
- What’s your favorite blog topic to write about?
I like writing about things that I am genuinely passionate about. I think this is because I find that writing comes so easily when you are passionate about it – words just seem to flow, and I definitely feel my writing is more articulate when everything is flowing naturally. Health and fitness would probably be my favourite topic, not only because it’s something I love personally, but also because I think unfortunately many people, especially young people, are very misguided by popular culture and get swept up by fad diets/products that are usually only causing them detriment to succeeding in their health and fitness goals.
- How would you describe your writing style?
I definitely have satirical tone throughout a lot of my work. I like to keep it funny yet articulate and witty. I believe in writing smart, not lengthy – that’s always been my motto. I like to keep my style really conversational as well, so that people can imagine that they are sitting opposite me and visualise my body language, emphasising my words.
- When did you start writing? Have you always been passionate about it?
I’ve always loved writing since I was in school. English was my best and favourite subject, and I used to write additional essays in my spare time to improve my skills, even though it was not required by my teachers. I think my vocab was at it’s peak when I was about 18! Unfortunately life gets in the way and I don’t have as much time to learn new words and how to use them. Reading and writing regularly is definitely the way to enhance your abilities when it comes to writing.
- Where do you get your ideas for blog topics? What inspires you most? Have you ever had writers block?
I don’t tend to get writers block when blogging. My full time job is actually in marketing and communications, so if ever, it will be at work that I experience that. When blogging, I’m always choosing what to write about, so understandably, words come quite naturally without too much thought going into it. Generally, I get ideas from my life in general; what am I loving right now, things that might be on my mind, and then of course, things I can help people with like skin care tips and so on.
- What’s the coolest beauty/fashion advice you’ve been given recently?
Hmmm, I wouldn’t say I seek out too much advice when it comes to fashion or beauty – I tend to figure things out for myself first!! But something I learned a few months back that has really changed the way I do my makeup, is that I use a lighter pressed powder under my eyes and my upper cheekbone over my concealer which enhances the brightening function of the concealer – there’s no point using a dark powder over concealer because you basically contradict its purpose.
- What was the moment/turning point you realized you had become a successful blogger?
I don’t really think of myself as a ‘successful blogger’. I guess most of my success comes from other social channels; more specifically, Instagram. I guess the thing I go by most of all is the engagement my content gets. You definitely have to think really carefully about the content you post anywhere and that it is remaining appealing to your audiences and followers.
- What trend do you hope stays around forever or makes a comeback?
I really love the off the shoulder trend. I think it is so feminine and sexy, but without showing off too much skin. So I hope this stays around!
- What is the one thing you couldn’t live without?
Definitely my phone. Unfortunately it practically houses my life so I’d be lost without it – I have slight addition which is not good! I do try to stay away from it when I don’t need to be near it. Other than that it would be skin care!!!
- What are some of your current fashion obsessions?
As I mentioned above – off the shoulder. Also love turtle necks, long coats for winter and sneakers. I love that girlie tomboy looks at the moment. So jeans with sneakers and then a long coat. It’s like that very well put together looks that is also super casual.
