#WCW Emma Blair

Riffraff has recently decided to start a tumblr! It’s so much fun to get inspo from all over the place! There’s a girl in my sorority named Emma Blair who has THE COOLEST tumblr of all time. She has close to 30,000 followers and so I loved getting the chance to pick her brain and get some tips about becoming #famous.

1

Kynzee: tell us a little about yourself…

Emma: My name is Emma Blair and I am originally from Flower Mound, TX. I now attend the University of Arkansas and I am studying Advertising / Public Relations and Communications. On campus, I’m involved in my sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha, and I am an intern for the Arkansas Athletic Street Team. My favorite things to do are get way too into intramural sports, journal, take pictures of my friends, and blog. My favorite things are John Mayer, traveling, and intentional conversation. When I grow up I want to be an event coordinator, but my back up plan is to be a professional coffee drinker.

K: how did you get so tumblr famous?!

E: I made my tumblr when I was either a freshman or sophomore in high school, and I have no idea what my original URL was. My friend helped me make the blog and showed me how to use it because I was not at all tech savvy. I actually gained a lot of followers after posting pictures with my boyfriend, now ex. (Hope you’re doing well Luke!!) I would also answer a lot of questions people would send in, regarding to things such as relationships, school, stress, and clothes. Nowadays I’ll answer questions occasionally, but I generally just reblog pictures, quotes, and songs. I like Tumblr because it can be whatever you make it, and it’s a great creative outlet.

K: what’s the best thing you’ve ever posted on tumblr?

E: You know I’m not really sure. I post a lot of things, depending on how I’m feeling, what’s going on in my life, and how busy I am. When I post something I get notifications about what is being “reblogged” and right now a popular thing blowing up my feed is a few sentences I posted last semester saying, “Do you ever realize how badly you’re going to miss a moment while you’re living it? Like wow, these are the good days. I am here and I am happy and I feel alive.” It obviously wasn’t around finals season when I wrote that… LOL. Tumblr is a cool way to express yourself in a way that other social medias can’t. I like being able to write posts as well as post pictures.”

K: if you could say one thing to your fans, what would it be?

E: I don’t think I necessarily have “fans,” but to the people who like what I like I would say hey you got good taste and I wish we could be real life pals. Don’t be fooled by the Internet, anyone can look like they have the perfect life online. I think tumblr is my favorite because my blog isn’t anything that I’m not. It’s a collection of quotes, artwork, fashion, music, and pictures that I like. I guess it’s pretty real and deep for something online, and I think that’s pretty cool.

K: what’s your favorite #riffrafflove find?

E: My favorite #riffrafflove find would have to be my boyfriend jeans. I bought them last semester and they are my ultimate go-to pair of jeans. They are comfortable and every time I wear them I get compliments. I can wear them when I’m going out or I can wear them when I’m hitting up a coffee shop to study, it’s like the best of both worlds!

Emma got the chance to swing by our HQ and pick out some outfits that are all online this week!

Fall in Love with TUMBLR

Screenshot_2016-03-09-10-35-02-1

Uh oh, Uh oh, Uh oh, oh no no! I just found the most versatile, all-in-one social media site there is on the web. TUMBLR!!!!! If you thought instagram and snapchat were big, just wait until you check this out. Tumblr is like wordpress, but simplified into something that not-so-tech savvy people like me, and even some of you, can decipher. You can “Reblog” like twiter, “hashtag” like instagram, “snap videos” like snapchat, and go follow right now because I know you already think its cool! When you get a second, tumble your way to riffraffhq.tumblr.com!

Keep.com ROCKS

Keep-Logo-1

Here are some wise words from our favorite frienemy, Blair Waldorf: “Whoever said that money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know where to shop.” Retweet. Like. Repost. All of it. Shopping is the one thing that can make a bad day go good and a good day stay good. Here at Riffraff we love to provide affordable and stylish clothes that keep you feeling good about yourself and about your wallet. However, we don’t have it all. And by all I mean everything you could possibly buy, including: furniture, home décor, makeup, kitchen stuff, cleaning products, electronics, hair products, etc. BUT we have found a website that does have it all. We love it so much that we want to share it with our friends. It’s called keep.com! Keep describes itself as “the place to discover the latest trends in fashion, home décor, accessories and design. Keep unites the best products from across all e-commerce into a beautiful showcase of trending, unique and frankly, fabulous finds.” The cool thing about keep.com is that you can checkout in one purchase. AKA killing 10 birds with one stone. I’m about to go on vacation to the beach and so I need a lot of very different things. Here’s a little peek at what my shopping cart currently looks like at keep.com. Click through and explore it for yourself!

1: ban.do the getaway luggage tag | ShopRiffraff.com https://keep.com/bando-the-getaway-luggage-tag-im-outta-here/p/BEG1ej1AArX/BEG1ekQgBLY/ I have a habit of losing everything but *knock on wood* I have never lost any luggage and I don’t plan on it. Riffraff carries this cutie ban.do luggage tag for an emergency of the lost kind.

2. friday + saturday: squad tee | ShopRiffraff.com https://keep.com/friday-and-saturday-squad-tee-shopriffraffcom/p/BHZ7JhkgAsV/BHZ7JhxgBMW/I’m going with 5 of my besties and ALWAYS match at least once on every vacation we go on (in NYC we had matching pajamas). This year we picked this squad tee so we can match in public because there’s nothing better than people staring at you like you’re crazy.

3. La Plage by Page Beach Blanket | Modcloth.com https://keep.com/la-plage-by-page-beach-blanket-mod-retro-vintage-decor-accessories-modclothcom/p/BKOB4EUgAq3/Right behind mosquitos on the list of things that are so annoying is sand. This super cute beach blanket will keep me sand-free.

4: Flashy Bohemian Metallic Flash Tats https://keep.com/flashy-bohemian-metallic-flash-tats/p/BJ6AUX5AAud/  Because flash tat tan lines rock!!

5: Zip Long Line Triangle Top | victoriassecret.com  https://keep.com/zip-long-line-triangle-top-beach-sexy-victorias-secret/p/8UaMc5AAlQ/  Can’t hit the beach without a new swim suit!!

6. Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20| ulta.com https://keep.com/tarte-amazonian-clay-bb-tinted-moisturizer-broad-spectrum-spf-20-ivory-ultacom-cosmetics-fragrance-salon-and-beauty-gifts/p/vj-iLdgAtV/ I’m obsessed with BB Cream. It’s the perfect amount of coverage for the beach + it has SPF in it to protect your beautiful face.
