Ally is the blogger behind Everything She Is.
Describe your blog:
A blog for the everyday girl searching for that little something extra in her already fabulous life! Focused on fashion, lifestyle and relationships, I hope to inspire my readers to become the best versions of themselves.
What is your favorite post you’ve written or your favorite series/type of post?
My favorite post thus far would have to be my 26 for 26: Lessons I’ve Learned post. I published it on my 26th birthday this past December and I received such a positive and uplifting response. It made me realize we’re all more similar than we think and it inspired me to start writing my Single in the City series for all the girls out there feeling a little lost, alone and confused by their single status.
What is something you wish you knew how to do related to blogging?
Finding time to write and plan out my blog posts before publishing them. I usually write them and publish them all in the same day, so they aren’t as polished and clean as I would like.
Why did you start blogging?
I feel like everyone says this, but I needed a creative outlet where I could express myself and hopefully bring other women into the conversation. The basis of Everything She Is is to encourage women to be the best versions of themselves and that we’re all in this life together. I wanted a place for my friends and other women to go to and gain inspiration and feel a sense of belonging.
What is your favorite social platform?
I love Instagram. I need to work on my Insta game, but I love browsing other bloggers profiles and picking up new ideas and gaining insight into their lives.
