A day in the life of a bloggers HANDS Stephanie Toms cocochicblog

February 23, 2015

Blogging is a business in its own right, and increasingly the girls behind their sites have gained as much influence on style and beauty regimes for the masses as A-List celebrities. For this week’s In The Hands of… I spoke to the super-chic Stephanie Toms of style blog cocochicblog.co.uk. She uses her hands day in, day out in order to create content for her blog – wether it’s applying make-up for beauty tutorials, styling clothes to inspire her street style followers or filming videos, Stephanie is out and about busy whatever the weather – which means you are never too young to start taking good care of your hands.

Here’s what Stephanie had to say –

I work as a full time blogger and You Tuber… Which is pretty crazy as I’m also a second year Journalism student at University. Busy hands on a keyboard!

I got into blogging when I started a Tumblr account… somehow I gained a pretty big following by posting pictures of food and people, and then one day I decided to venture into the world of blogging. I’ve been doing it for around a year and a half now.

It wasn’t something I always wanted to get into… I never really knew what I wanted to be – in fact I still don’t know now! Of course it’s everyone’s dream to make money from the internet (hello pyjama uniform) but I never really knew this type of job existed until it actually became a reality. I definitely cannot complain.

The best thing about what I do is… every single day is different which is great because I am a person who gets bored easily. The majority of the day is spent using my hands on some form of computer or gadget, one day I can be filming video’s, the next I’ll be taking photos and then having meetings with brands, it’s fantastic.

Stephanie Toms cocochic talks to SEAMS Beauty

I really love my job… slippers all day, my own work hours – what’s not to love?!

My hands are important for my job because… they’re the basis of pretty much everything I do. If I have to live without hands for a day absolutely nothing would get done – no blog posts, no photographs, nothing.

As a result of my work my hands get pretty dry and sore… especially in winter when I am out and about taking photos.

My hand care routine is… basically ensuring I moisturise my hands with SEAMS throughout the day.

My least favourite part of the day is… getting up! I’m the worst morning person. No matter how much sleep I get in a night I can always manage to squeeze a nap in throughout the day. Put me on public transport I’ll be out like a light!

2015 is a big year for me because… I’ve been part of a blogging platform since I started blogging, but this year I’m going solo. I’m hoping I can push my blog more than ever before and I’d love to hit 10,000 subscribers hands on You Tube and feel proud of what I am doing.

I don’t have much spare time… but when I do I watch my favourite You Tubers or play video games with my boyfriend!

My favourite way to relax is… to have a bath, and relax my hands and mind from the digital world for a while.

Clean spaces inspire me… I’m a naturally really messy person, so if I’m ever feeling uninspired I’ll do a huge spring clean to clear my mind. Tumblr is a huge source of inspiration for me too, of course.

My motto for life is… if you don’t love it, don’t do it. I tried so hard to come up with an inspiring quote, but I think this is pretty self-explanatory.

At SEAMS are now addicted to cocochic on You Tube and are loving her ‘What’s in my handbag which now of course includes SEAMS!

Always keep SEAMS Close to hand – In your bag
