#MyBlogLife: We Meet Fashion Boss Lorna Duffy
Meet Irish style and beauty blogger Lorna Jane Duffy, who's a real Fashion Boss.
How did you get into blogging and how did your blog start?
I’ve always had a huge passion for fashion, so I decided to start blogging in my spare time. Over the years, I’ve written blogs on a variety of topics, but I wanted something purely based on fashion.
What’s your favourite aspect of blogging?
I love meeting new people and working with new brands I also love all the fashion and beauty events. I frequently travel to The UK with work which is really fun.
The future of Fashion Boss?
I hope to eventually develop Fashion Boss as a brand. I’ve some exciting projects lined up in both Ireland and the UK in the next few months. I’m pleased with what I have achieved to date and I’m looking forward to the future.
Experiences always win out over clothes and beauty products. I get invited to attend loads of events for free, so for me, it’s all about the overall experience, the people I meet and the memories I make.
How’d you describe your personal style?
Chic and whimsical – I like a powerful look with sharp lines. I love monochrome and bold accessories and I also love wearing bright colours and patterns.
