AMY VALENTINE X GK
Amy is one of our favorite UK bloggers at the moment! She’s got a cool, effortless sense of style, and pink hair to dye for. We interviewed her to get some style advice, music recommendations, and how to get that perfectly pink hair.
1. How did you get into blogging?
I used to have my own little business where I made jewellery and sold it online and had a blog for that as I saw most companies have a blog to keep people updated with new stock. Through that I discovered personal fashion blogs and knew I needed to create one as I loved fashion so much, and now here I am!
2. How often do you go to shows? what have been some of your favorite shows you’ve been to this year?
I’ve been to 6 festivals this year which has been so awesome, and I’d say I go to a show at least every 2 months. My favourite sets have definitely been Woodkid, Linkin Park performing Hybrid Theory, Brand New and although it’s not who I usually listen to - Justin Timberlake was incredible live!
3. Describe your perfect concert or festival outfit.
Kimonos have been a staple for festival season this year (original, I know) with a lot of colour, but for gigs I usually wear shorts, a band tee and some clunky boots so my feet don’t get crushed in the mosh pits!
4. Your style is so distinctive, what are some things you keep in mind when you style an outfit?
I dress according to my mood and who I’m inspired by every day, so it changes very frequently! From boho crochet dresses to girly frills to old grungy tees, I don’t think I dress to a certain style every day - I’m too fashion fickle! I do try to add a girly-grunge twist to most outfits though to keep with my style - for example by slipping on some studded boots or a choker.
5. We love your hair! What do you use to keep it so pink?
Thank you! I use any pink from various hair dye brands like Colour Fusion, Live XXL and Crazy Colour, then mix it with my shampoo & conditioner when I’m in the shower!
