This week we caught up with influencer Lily Grist ( aka @lilxmg on Insta). At only 18 years old this gorgeous girl has one impressive insta feed. If you're a fan of sports luxe styles infused with name brands you'll love Lily. We chat Love Island, Kappa and Dance Moms...
Q. How and when did you become a blogger?
A: I've had my Instagram account since about 2014, but I only really started to take care and taking proper photos since early this year. One day I just thought I wanted to channel my energy into something and Instagram was an easy way i could express my love for photography and fashion.
Q. What does a day in the life of you look like?
A: I've recently finished college so a day in the life of me is pretty boring but i wake up around 9am and then chill for a bit, have a shower and get ready. Sometimes i'll go out and find new places to take photos or i'll just stay in. It depends what the day/weathers like! Then in the evening I go to my dance classes which I take and then grab some dinner, watch love island and go to bed!
Q. Who are your style inspirations, i.e influencers or designers that motivate you?
A: I tend to try and find my own style when I can but I definitely do look for inspiration usually on Instagram. An account I especially like is @hypebae they post girls streetwear fashion photos, also my friend Bianca who I met through Instagram her account is @aysaplarocky , she inspires me as she's so unique and isn't afraid of what other people would say!
Q. What are your top beauty essentials for when you’re on the go?
A: My top beauty essentials will always be the Rimmel Stay Matte powder, my Lottie London highlighter palette and my Jeffree Star liquid lipstick in Celebrity Skin.
