Hey SJ! We love Cowbiscuits, but we’ve got to ask, where did the name come from?
Haha I always get asked this because I guess it’s so weird! Basically I needed an AOL name way back when to quickly chat to my friend overseas and next to me were a pack of malted milk biscuits with pictures of cows on them – hence cowbiscuits was born! And here I am many moons later.
Tell us a little bit about why you started blogging?
I used to keep a scrap book where I’d buy tons of magazines and cut and stick pictures and write things next to them. Then I started following blogs via Tumblr and from there I realised that I can save my hours of scissors and glue and just use my Blogspot as a personal journal instead!
We love your style. Who would you say is your biggest style influence?
I’m not really into new fashions or any typical ‘icons’ so I’d go with my idols growing up such as Gwen Stefani and Deborah Harry. Rockstar Blonde Bombshells!
If you could shop with anyone, past or present, who would it be?
I’d probably let Deborah Harry take me out for a shop.
What’s the best piece of career/blogging advice you’ve ever been given?
I’ve not really been given it but I’d say personally I just think to myself, this is my blog, my interests I do it as a hobby for myself – anyone else who enjoys it is an incredible bonus.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Wake up, cup of tea, sort the cat out and then head to work. Come home, do some yoga, blog, catch up on rubbish TV then snooze time!
Finally, we’ve all had ’em…what is your biggest fashion disaster?
11 years old, goth phase – eyeliner…everywhere.
