I had the pleasure of interviewing the gorgeous Founder & Author of The Blush Diaries, Rania.
Rania tell us about her passion for her blog & what her future plans are.
Please tell us a bit about yourself..?
I’m originally Lebanese/Palestinian and I currently live in Dubai with my husband. I graduated with a Communications and PR degree from Michigan State University, and after working for a few years I decided to move into the fashion industry.
How did you get into blogging?
I wanted to pursue a career as a fashion journalist and decided to start a blog to build a portfolio. Soon enough the blog became my greatest passion and the best creative outlet for me.
Tell us about your proudest achievement?
My proudest achievement is working on my blog full-time and starting my own online store.
What are the challenges you face of being an Influencer?
It’s a lot of work to stay current and interesting, especially with managing so many social media platforms. But it keeps me inspired to work harder and get better.
What are the rewards?
It’s rewarding when readers enjoy my content and are inspired by my posts and outfits.
What do you find the most frustrating?
It frustrates me when people don’t appreciate the amount of work that goes into running a professional blog.
Who is you biggest role model and why?
There are a few amazing people in my life that I really look up to, but my mother is my biggest role model. She’s strong, kind and patient and has always been supportive.
Who is your style icon? And why?
I adore Blake Lively. I think she’s a beautiful woman and her outfits are always elegant and stand out.
How do you describe your personal style?
I definitely lean towards a feminine aesthetic, but I occasionally like to try fun prints and edgy outfits.
How do you balance between work, family, friends & blogging?
It can be difficult balancing between work and life especially since everyone has their own busy schedule, but I’ve gotten better at managing my time and making it a priority to spend time with family and friends.
Tell us something no one knows about Rania?
I’m a little bit introverted and I don’t like big crowds.
What are your plans for the future?
At the moment I’m focusing on growing The Blush Diaries and continuing to create beautiful and inspiring content.
Finally take us through a day in Rania’s life..
The best part of what I do is that each day is different. I always start my mornings going through emails and my schedule over a hot cup of coffee. Some days I have photoshoots, while others I’m at meetings or events.
