We’re so lucky today to be joined by former Miss USA contestant Rebecca Marie. Rebecca has a huge presence via her site and Instagram. She took some time to walk us through how she manages it and goals for the future. Please take the time to read below and check her out!
When did you launch your blog and what made you decide to get into fashion blogging?
I launched my website – therebeccamarie.com – in 2015! It was the summer after competing in Miss USA, and I was excited to share my style and travel details on a public forum. What started as a hobby and a simple way to connect with people, quickly became a major focus in my life!
When did your interest in fashion and beauty begin?
I’ve always loved and been interested in fashion and beauty, though it’s not always been my forte. I would show you pictures from middle school, yet I’m not sure the world is ready. To this day, it’s still a game of trial and error. Every day I learn something new, and I’m thankful for that.
How have you developed your style?
With time I’ve noticed that my initial thoughts are the true me. If I see something and think “wow,” then that is a look that represents my personality. I’m a lover of all things, though the things that wow me are the consistent looks I gravitate towards! Simplicity is my jam.
What is the one essential item in your wardrobe you couldn’t live without?
The flowy dress. I’m a huge fan of twirling, and if I’m wearing a flowy dress it guarantees a great day!
How many looks do you shoot in a single day?
Right now I average 3-5 looks per blog shoot.
What camera do you use, and what do you use to edit your photos?
I actually don’t have a camera (yet)! I work with a photographer for all of my shoots. I’m in the market, though – Any suggestions are welcome! I edit my photos in VSCO – I love the A filters because they make my pictures look clean and crisp!
How long did it take you to grow your following?
The majority of my following has come within the last two years! It’s been so fun to connect with people through the simple click of a button – Social media is powerful in that way. Take the time to connect!
What are your 5 essential travel items?
A favorite book, a portable charger, a hat, some protein bars and an adventurous attitude!
What’s a place you’d like to visit?
Right now I have my heart set on Bali – I’d love to adventure there soon!
What are your goals in 2017?
In 2017 I’m excited to continue my travels while partnering with incredible brands!
