They say do what you love and never work a day in your life, Tia McIntosh stands as the ideal image for this quote. She started her fashion blogging career on Instagram never imaging it to blow up the way it did. She got to play in her field of passion and loved every second of it – not to say much patience and hard work wasn’t involved. Tia’s fashion advice stands extremely admirable in the world of both Instagram and ours!
What inspired you to start your blog and social media accounts?
I started blogging on Instagram first when my personal account started to become more and more about fashion. As my passion grew for fashion it showed on my Instagram more and more until it eventually turned it into a full fashion blog!
What’s your biggest tip for someone who wants to get into fashion industry?
I personally have most of my experience in the creator perspective – so if you want to start doing your own photography and fashion blogging my advice is be patient. I’ve been practicing photography for as long as I remember and I’ve been taking fashion photos for 3 ½ years now and it just takes practice! It’s a whole art in itself to master!
What is the one thing you couldn’t live without?
My family for sure, they are always there for me supporting and teaching me. I couldn’t possibly ask for more. And if we are talking about something I couldn’t live without for blogging – my camera and my heels collection.
Any cool hobbies we should hear about?
Another passion of mine (aside from fashion) is dance! I’ve danced for about 11 years now and have been on a competitive team for 4 years. I also love traditional art such as sculpture, painting and drawing.
What is one thing that people would be surprised to hear?
That I was homeschooled until the age of 14 when I decided I wanted to go to high school part time!
I’m very outgoing and bubbly and I owe that to my upbringing.
Any cool places you’re traveling to soon/any destinations you’re hoping to visit?
Yes, I am very lucky to have the privilege to travel lots because my mom is a flight attendant!
We have gotten to travel all over Europe, Japan, and to beautiful places like Hawaii and Aruba!
We have a trip planned for New York in August and Hawaii at the end of summer!
Where do you find your muses/inspiration?
All over the place, sometimes other bloggers inspire me or a piece of clothing. Or maybe something completely unrelated to fashion with a color scheme that I love!
What trend do you hope stays around forever or makes a comeback?
Crop tops, because I have so darn many of them! Oh and rose gold and marble, I LOVE those two things for decorating!
What your hopes/future plans for your blog/social media influence/work?
Oh my goals are always growing! One of my main goals is to reach 100k one day, and also to be making a solid income from my fashion blogging so I can continue this as my career!
What are some of your current fashion obsessions?
Lace up heels which I don’t think I’m alone on, blush pink reflective glasses, powder pink and long coats.
