As my final guest post for the week, I’m introducing you to the gorgeous Ally from Gumboot Glam! Ally’s style is trendy and feminine and her outfit posts are great for color inspiration! She is also the person to whom I give oh so much credit for introducing me to Makeup Forever HD primer, foundation, and powder. After reading her tutorial on her blog I ran out and tried it myself. I saw the difference in my blog pictures immediately – and when you see her makeup I am sure you will agree it is worth a try!
I asked Ally to answer a few questions and also to share her go-to look for spring. Enjoy!

1. Why did you start blogging? What has the experience been like?
I started blogging in June of 2012 – I work in Corporate Finance so I really really needed a creative outlet, I also always get asked about my outfits and makeup, so I decided a blog would be a great hobby! So far I have found the blog to be so much fun, I have learned so much! Its also something that my boyfriend Christian and I do together which is great.
2. What are some of your likes/dislikes? (anything from food to hobbies – whatever you want)
My likes are my boyfriend Christian, my dog Binxie, shopping, sunny days and dry cappucino’s, my dislikes are rainy days (which make my hair frizzy) – but at least I get to wear my gumboots.
3. How would you describe your personal style?
I would call my style feminine, fun, yet classic. I wear whatever makes me happy! Lately I am loving bright colors!
4. You obviously have great style – how did you get it? Where did you learn – or were you just born with it?
Aww you are so sweet! Thank you! I would definitely have to say from my parents, both of them have amazing classic style and taught me the importance of always looking your best regardless of your budget.
5. What are some of your favorite beauty products?
I love MAC lipstick – My Favorite colors are ‘Ruby Woo’, ‘Kinda Sexy’ & “Candy Yum Yum’
I also love Bumble and Bumble Hair spray and Loreal mascara, and Nars ‘Super Orgasm’ Blush
7. What advice would you give to someone who wants to start blogging, based on what you have learned so far?
I would say that its important to keep at it – even when you don’t really feel like it.
Its also so much fun to work with other bloggers so network and be social 🙂
