Katie Manwaring - Katie's Bliss
What motivated you to start your blog?
While attending college in rural North Carolina I found that I needed a creative outlet and Katie’s Bliss was born!

How does the city you live in inspire your day-to-day fashion?
My style has definitely evolved since moving to New York City! Now when I purchase a new pair of shoes comfort is a must since I do so much walking! I’m also much more open to taking fashion risks! NYC is a very fashion-forward city where anything goes. I could literally wear anything I wanted out my door and no one would blink an eye.

Who are your style icons?
I love Olivia Palermo, Blake Lively and Miranda Kerr.

Name one piece every woman should have in her wardrobe and why?
A great quality handbag that you’ll use for years to come.

What items do you always carry in your handbag?
My wallet, keys, iPhone, a small umbrella, altoids, sunglasses and lots of lipstick and lipgloss!

What is the best beauty trick you’ve ever learned?
Not to wash my hair too often. I know it can sound gross, but since my hair is color-treated and prone to dryness I’ve found that washing it less and keeping heat styling at a minimum is the best way to keep it healthy.

Tell us…what is something not many people know about you?
I’m a reality TV addict!

What are your favourite prints or colors to mix? Do you have any tips?
I have a few favorite color combos that I love to mix – orange/navy, pink/navy, black/white. My best tip would be to not over-do pattern and print mixing. If you’re wearing a striped top and floral bottoms keep the rest of your look neutral.

When you need a little pick-me-up, how do you add sparkle to your life and feel good?
I love a good pedicure or an iced coffee!

How do you start your day? Do you have a morning routine?
I always start my day by answering a few blog emails, scheduling social media updates and finalizing my post for the day. From there I got ready for work and head out the door!
