Hello beautiful people,
When I started blogging newly, it was quite difficult for me to meet other bloggers and really find tips about blogging. I found some online and with few prsonal experiences. So I thought to myself 'why can't I help other upcoming bloggers of this stress?'. If you are just viewing this blog for the first time bloggers diary is a post on interviews with bloggers where they share tips on styling, blogging and so on. I don't want to be selfish about this so if you have any blogger you would want to see for the month, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or check contact me on the top part of the blog for more ways to contact me and I would sure appreciate your suggestions.
Back to the post, this month I featured the stylish and mother of three; Esther of house of sienna, she was one of my followers and I also featured her as one of my top ten bloggers with unique style. She is a blogger, a personal stylist and a personal shopper, Enjoy the interview.
Please do introduce yourself?
My name is Esther Gbudje, I am a wife and mother to two beautiful girls and 1 handsome boy, I love singing, composing songs, blogging, shopping lol.
What inspired you to start blogging and when did you start blogging?
Hmmmm what inspired me, actually I saw few fashion blogs and since I love dressing up, I love looking good, I said to myself I know I can do this too and some of my friends encouraged me too, I started blogging in 2013.

Apart from blogging what else do you do?
I run a fashion business kinda like personal shopping, I sing too hopefully would be releasing a single soon
As a personal shopper how do you keep your customers satisfied and what do you look out for in every client before you start shopping?
I listen to their demands, I offer advice where necessarily and also source for things that affordable, well I look out for serious customers lol, I ask questions so we are clear before we start any transaction and yes sometimes I do turn down some people especially if I know a customer would give me too much trouble.
Any shopping and style tips you want to share?
When shopping take an inventory of your closet, so you wont buy an item twice, don't buy on impulse, do window shopping, you can even try thrift shops too there are loads of treasures there, I have bought very lovely things from thrift shops, and also remember cut your cloth according to your size, be content too. Be your own stylist, be adventurous, know your body type.
