With the digital age, came the birth of bloggers – the new digital age media army, with fashion and beauty warriors alike helping to set and develop trends around the globe. Every Monday, Wear Eponymous sits down to interview an up and coming blogger that has shown skill, quality and excellent blogging values.
This week, we interview Sophie O'Reilly from Sophie's Plus Size Wonderland. With a passion for acting and blogging, Sophie has starred as a model in several plus-size photo shoots and champions body positivity under the mantra "Dream, Believe, Achieve!"
W.E: Hey Sophie! Tell us a bit about you!
Sophie: Hiya! I’m Sophie O’Reilly, a 25 year old actress and blogger from London. Acting is my life. I’m a strong supporter of body positivity and believe that all shapes and sizes are beautiful, if you want to do something in life, be confident and do it! Life is far too short. I have a strong passion for blogging; I enjoy writing and have a great interest in media, I love networking with people that share the same interests as me. I’m a friendly person who loves to laugh!
While I have been blogging I have met so many lovely amazing people and I hope to meet many more. I’m a girly girl that is obsessed with shopping and everything pink. Growing up I always had a creative side, when I was younger I would enter art competitions, write stories, perform and make things. I adore animals and swimming!
If you remember SMTV Live I use to be one of the kids on the stairs! The most embarrassing thing that has happened to me must have been when one of my hoop Earrings fell out and I was walking around wearing one earring! EEEK!
I’m also Miss Islington Curve 2014.
W.E: Why did you start a blog?
Sophie: I have always loved plus size fashion and beauty so wanted to share my thoughts with the world, being a plus size girl I also wanted to show that fashion doesn’t end at a certain size and that everyone should love their bodies.
W.E: What are your favourite SS2014 beauty trends?
Sophie: Has to be wavy hair, smokey eyes and a pink natural lip, you can wear this look anywhere!
W.E: What has been the most rewarding factor about blogging?
Sophie: Giving other girls confidence in themselves and making them realise that they are good enough and can achieve their goals.
W.E: How do you define beauty?
Sophie: I love make-up so much and experimenting with it, I have so many beauty products I could open a shop! But beauty is not just about make-up, beauty is all about confidence too, hold your head up high and be proud of who you are. Being confident will let your beauty shine through.
W.E: What was your favourite outfit as a child?
Sophie: It was a cute pink/purple dress, white frilly socks and pink jelly sandals; I absolutely adored that outfit and always wanted to wear it! I also had a big love for a top that had pineapples all over it, no idea why! Haha!
W.E: Name a wardrobe item you'd be lost without.
Sophie: Ah so hard! My pretty dresses or my black leggings!
W.E: Finally, what is your favourite Wear Eponymous piece this season?
Sophie: I’m so excited that Wear Eponymous are talking with their manufactures to bring in larger sizes! So I can’t wait until they have this cute stylish dress in my size! Amazing!
