This week we chat to Hayley McMahon, a Glaswegian beauty living it up in London!
Name: Hayley McMahon
Introduce us to your blog: The Glasgow Girl (www.theglasgowgirl.com ) is a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blog!
What made you decide to start blogging? I have always loved reading other people’s blogs and watching YouTube makeup tutorials, and having such a passion for makeup and fashion I FINALLY plucked up the courage to put myself out there and start my own blog!
Tell us about your style… I LOVE layering and accessorising! I am currently loving wearing black skinny jeans with a nice chunky knit jumper, then adding a statement necklace or blanket scarf to finish it off – that’s my everyday look at the moment!
Where do you get your wardrobe inspiration? Instagram! It’s a great place to find some outfit inspiration if you are struggling!
Is blogging your day job or do you have another occupation? I am actually a PhD student at Imperial College London working in the Respiratory Medicine department, so blogging is my hobby!
If you could meet any top blogger, who would it be and why? I would love to meet Sarah Ashcroft from That Pommie Girl . I think she has incredible taste and great style when it comes to fashion, plus I would love to just talk to her about clothes and makeup she likes!
What style are you currently obsessed with? I am still obsessed with the camel coat trend! I think pairing a camel coat with a turtle-neck knit jumper and skinny jeans just looks so stylish.
What’s the one beauty product you couldn’t live without and why? This is such a hard question…I have so many makeup favourites I couldn’t live without! Ok, if I had to pick one it would be my NARS Sheer Glow foundation – I can’t go out without my base on, and this foundation just makes your skin look photo-ready and flawless!
Who’s your celebrity style crush? Taylor Swift – she looks effortlessly classic, sophisticated and just perfect everytime I see pictures of her! I just love everything about her style – from her clothes to her hair and makeup!
What’s your favourite piece from our current collections? As it is still cold, my favourite right now has to be the Ribbed cowl neck jumpers. Right now though I also have my eye on this checked print blazer, which I think would look perfect styled with skinny jeans and chunky boots for work!
Do you prefer to shop online or in-store? Online shopping is so addictive, but I do prefer going into the shops and browsing the aisles for inspiration!
If you had to share one piece of fashion advice what would it be? I would say just love what you are wearing – if you are comfortable and confident in your outfit and yourself then it will definitely show in your body language and set you off for the day 🙂
