This month at Story 81 we’re talking to Tilly-Jayne Kidman, a vegan social media and marketing executive by day, blogger and freelance writer by night.
There's something about Tilly... So we wanted to find out what inspires her and what’s her secret to juggling such a full lifestyle?
Could you tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspires you?
Hey! So a little bit about me, I'm 24 and a graduate in Fashion Marketing. I live in Cambridgeshire and currently juggle working with blogging. Whilst I've always classed myself as a fashion blogger, since going vegan my content is now a little more mixed with lifestyle posts in between the OOTD's! I'm fully vegan so I don't wear any leather, wool etc and I also own four house bunnies which are the cutest things ever!
My inspiration often comes from those around me, but in terms of style inspiration then definitely other bloggers and Pinterest.
What’s your key to juggling such a busy lifestyle?
If anyone knows, hook me up! It can be tiring, and sometimes I just want to run away to a desert island haha. I don't have any time management tips I just take each day as it comes, and often my weekends are pretty jam packed.
What are the other things you are passionate about?
Veganism, animals and travelling.
What is your favourite piece in the Story 81 collection and why?
The Pia bag which I styled in my blog post! I love the style, the fact that it's big enough to store all my essentials and the pop of pink. I've been really into pink recently which is strange as I don't usually deter from neutrals.
Define yourself in three words?
Ahh this is hard, ok erm...passionate, caring (mainly towards animals HA) and loyal.
What’s your favourite place to hang out?
On weekends I typically head into the city centre (Cambridge) as I just love the vibe there. It's laid back and a really lovely place to just mooch about.
What’s your favourite place to eat?
In terms of eating, I have to head somewhere vegan friendly so if I'm in Cambridge it will either be the Rainbow Cafe (an independently run veggie/vegan place), Zizzi or Las Iguanas as both have vegan options.
Best piece of advice you’ve received?
Life is too short, if you want to do something you've got to go and do it. This probably had something to do with why I just booked an American roadtrip for next year!!
Complete the following sentence:
Happiness is…good food, good company and no stress! Oh and my bunnies, they bring me happiness.
