Stylonylon kindly shared about the bullfinch cushions she bought, on her blog a couple of years ago and since then she has been on our must read list! She has started to do a new You Tube feature called The skinny where she gives informal chats about what she has tested. We were delighted to see the Bullfinch cushions in her backdrop!

So we got in contact with the lovely Julia to ask her more about Stylonylon, here is her Q&A;


Can you tell me why you decided to set up Stylonylon and your ethos behind your blog?

The blog was something to do while I was on maternity leave. It quickly became the perfect outlet for a variety of my obsessions – fashion, shopping and photography!

What is unique about Stylonylon?

I take all the photographs for the blog, including my own outfit posts. The level of photography on style blogs these days is so high, so I am constantly striving to improve my shots. It’s something I take great pleasure doing. I also cover lifestyle and travel as well as personal style and the odd bit of beauty.

How do you decide what you want to review and talk about?

It’s completely spontaneous and that’s the way I want to keep it. I have a magpie eye and am slightly obsessive so there’s never any shortage of things I want to feature. To be honest, I can’t keep up with the amount of photos I take.

 Who are you blogging Icons?

I’m a huge fan of Caroline Blomst of Caroline’s Mode for pioneering street style blogs and her incredibly elegant but cool personal styling. I also adore the photography and colourful DIY chic of US bloggers A Beautiful Mess.

For any budding bloggers out there, what would be your best tip for starting out?

Work on producing the best quality content you can visually and let your personality shine through your writing. It took me a while to find my own voice for my blog after having worked as a freelance journalist for so many years, but then I realised being me was enough!
