Introduce us to your blog…I write a personal style blog www.clairejustineoxox.com  where I share my style as a stay at home mum of 4 on a budget. I am always looking for a bargain and love to add lots of colour, styles and variety to my wardrobe.

What made you decide to start blogging? I read an online newspaper fashion article, the editor was trying out the six items or less challenge.  This was where you wear only 6 items of clothing for one month!! I met a lovely blogger, (who no longer blogs ) on my first attempt who blogged about her outfits. So I did the challenge again and started a blog, I had a great time on the challenge and made over 30 outfit combinations and did a video to record my efforts. Sadly this website has gone now too…

M&Co shoes

What’s your biggest achievement in the blogosphere? Being featured in April’s edition of Red Magazine for my fitness. I got to go to London, get dressed up and wear Jimmy Choos. The photo shoot was amazing and I was so proud when all my friends and family got to see me in a magazine.

Where do you look for inspiration when writing posts? I like to look on the High Street and see what is in fashion, also looking on sites such as Pinterest and other fashion sites (blogs) for ideas. many of my posts feature my family, having six people in a household with differing opinions can often give me inspiration for fashion.

Is blogging your day job or do you have another occupation? At the minute blogging is just one of my hobbies.  It would be nice to earn a living doing it. Who knows possibly in the future?

Any favourite blogs/bloggers? I love http://vintagevixon.blogspot.co.uk/  http://www.citizenrosebud.com/  and http://www.stylesud-est.blogspot.co.uk  Their styles are original colourful and they have an amazing eye for details…

Just one piece errr my favourite one would have to be…still deciding …Cream Polka Dot Tea Dress although the Boat Print Dress and the Mirror Floral Print dress are amazing too…

Do you prefer to shop online or in-store and why? I shop online if something is in the sale but I prefer to look around the shops to see what catches my eye also trying on the item.
