Everybody... Meet Trish of the blog Reserved For Ruby
Hi Everyone I'm Trish.
I started blogging to document my love for fashion. I am by no means a fashion expert but after years of friends and family asking where I bought certain items in my wardrobe, I decided to start a blog so they could keep track of any outfits they wanted to purchase too!
I have a lot of fun sitting down to write on Reserved For Ruby and it has become a little sanctuary where I can relax and dive into a world where everything is peaceful and filled with fashion!
For me, fashion comes naturally. I quickly realised how friendly the blogging community is and became hooked. I love how every blogger likes to encourage others to keep going and it is one big happy family.
I really hope it continues to grow and remain that way as, I always believe there is room for everyone. When I came across Rachel's blog I quickly fell in love with her style and her way with words which makes her blog so enjoyable to read. I love sitting down in the evening and on weekends and browsing through posts which I didn't get a chance to read during the busy working week.
Like Rachel, I would say my style has naturally evolved over time.
I am Irish and in my twenties and since school and college I guess I have tried to build a more classic capsule wardrobe...which I never seem to stick to and always find myself gravitating towards a few 'on-trend' pieces each season.
For A/W 14 I already purchased a couple of printed blouses....which I will post about in the next couple of weeks. I like to wear quite a lot of cream coloured clothing which I find so easy to mix and match with more patterned clothing. I don't think I will ever get bored of cream tops so they will always remain a wardrobe staple for me.
Since May, I committed to writing one blog post a day. Although I have maintained this for the most part, I belive in quality over quantity. That said, I aim to deliver a new post at least 5 times a week. To keep updated you can follow me on pretty much every social media channel or subscribe via email to my blog.
However, I wish I started my blog sooner. I began blogging in 2008 and stopped because I was afraid. Afraid of what? Who knows but I was pretty scared of what people would think. It took me a while to get over that and there was always a niggling feeling to start a blog. And so one very dark and dreary January evening after work I came up with Reserved For Ruby and have kept going ever since. Albeit the posts were less frequent at the beginning, I decided it wasn't fair to ask people to follow my blog without providing unique and quality content. I hope I live up to that now and one thing is definitely for sure, I try to improve my blog every single day. I am always searching for the perfect leather jacket, winter boots and a staple cream blouse and I don't think I will ever find the 'perfect' one but I think half the fun is in the hunt! Every year, I get excited about shopping for these items and long may it continue. Right now as I am getting my winter wardrobe ready, I am finding some pieces for my bedroom. I have partnered up with Wayfair.co.uk and they are kindly giving away a beautiful cream blanket box and cushion to one lucky reader. You can enter here.
