In this months installment of our influencer interview series we're featuring Laura Mitbrodt to talk all things vintage. With a bachelor of Fine Arts, two diplomas in Fashion and a love for nostalgia, Laura really is the girl for those wanting to break free from the modern world and delve into another era with a modern twist.
How did you first get into blogging?
I started blogging in 2014 because I couldn't find a job related to what I studied in school, so I decided to start a blog as a creative outlet.
You now blog full-time and also create your own perfume, how do you juggle the two, when did you go full time?
I do blog full-time but I also have a part-time job two days a week pricing vintage clothing at a thrift shop. I have been posting on my blog consistently for almost 5 years now.
What’re your favourite notes in perfume?
I love rose, vanilla and basically anything floral.
What has been your favourite beauty brand collaboration so far?
There are so many fantastic beauty brands I have worked with. The biggest ones I have worked with are Olay, Herbal Essences and L'Oreal.
Do you think that your blog and presence on Instagram go hand in hand?
You’ve now started YouTube, how was the transition?
YouTube has become my favourite and fastest growing platform. I find that my audience is so engaged with me and I feel so excited to read their comments every time I post. It was difficult to get comfortable on camera, but now I thrive on it and enjoy YouTube over blogging.
What is an A/W beauty staple that everybody should have in their wardrobe?
A good face oil and a detoxifying and brightening face mask.
