There are so many cool ladies out there, and we want to recognize them! So welcome to our very first, Brightside Spotlight Babe section of the blog! Each month we're going to spotlight two amazing ladies with six questions!
To kick off our new series, we chatting with AliceJoy Thomas! You can find her on Instagram, @Alicejoythomas!
1. Who is AliceJoy?
AliceJoy is just a regular girl. I can’t tell you how many times I have received messages from people asking me questions and they are shocked when I respond. They think I am going to be rude or full of myself because of my follower count and my looks or photos. Followers are just a number. While I am thankful and have a love for every single member of my Always AliceJoy family, I do realize that I am still the same person. A number on a screen doesn’t change who I am. I don’t care if I have 10,000 or 10,000,000 followers, I am still me and my main goal when I began blogging was to help and connect with other women so I will never stop doing just that.
2. You're always glowing. What is your beauty routine like?
Awe thanks! My beauty routine includes a lot of moisturization. Like a ton! I use a moisturizing face wash, a serum, then a cream, then an oil. I know it sounds like a lot but I have eczema so my glow definitely does not come naturally. I also exfoliate pretty often to make sure my skin is smooth.
3. As an influencer, how do you stay on top of multiple projects at a time?
It can be very hard. I hate to admit it but I can be an extremely unorganized person. The main thing I do is write things in my day planner. I usually have it with me all the time. I also make a schedule of when I need to post certain things to know which project I should work on first.
4. What are Instagram accounts you're obsessed with?
OMG! There are so many. @negin_mirsalehi, @namvo (speaking of a good glow), @marianna_hewitt, @sincerelyjules, @kendrabailey, @mishti.rahman, @isabelag4, @raine.montalvao, @ann.wynn, @tianaparkr, @asiyami_gold... like I said there are a lot and all of them have different styles but I think who I follow reflects my style so much! Because my style honestly changes every day.
5. When you're shopping, what catches your eye?
I love a stand out piece! I shop for the specific piece and then plan my outfit based on that.
6. What is your anthem? What do you find yourself listening to pump you up?
My anthem? Hmmm... good question! I would say I’m so proud of you by Drake and Nikki Minaj. Blogging is hard work! And I am proud of myself for all the work I have don’t to get where I am. I am constantly surrounded by women pushing towards their dreams in this field and it is so empowering. I am so proud Of them! To get pumped I usually listen to rap music. As much as the song Gucci Gang is protested by people, I have to be honest and say it does get me kind of pumped though.
