Hey everyone I am back after a long time. Yes on this new website but the contents would remain interesting as usual. Today on Interview zone I have Katherine Wallace from www.aureliabeauty.com. Katherine is a known fashion blogger and in her blogs she explains the products very well. So I shall proceed to the interview.
Me: Hi Katherine. Thank you for accepting my invitation for interview zone. So shall I proceed with the interview?
Kat: My pleasure. Sure. Go ahead.
Me: So how did you decide to become a fashion blogger? Was it a thoughtful choice?
Kat: I decided to become a fashion blogger because I love all things related to fashion and beauty, they have always inspired me. One evening I suggested starting a blog to my husband as a way to harness my creativity and share it with family, friends and whoever else stumbled across it. My husband was super supportive and now I have been blogging for about 4 months. I would say it was both a thoughtful, and spontaneous choice. Thoughtful in the sense that I knew this was something I was passionate about and had a drive to do. Yet spontaneous because it was a very spur of the moment choice to actually start my blog.
Me: Wow that’s awesome, So How was the response initially? Share some moments with us please.
Kat: I feel that the initial response was everything I could have hoped for. All of my family and friends were very supportive and couldn’t wait to see the content I was creating. I found it very touching that so many people in my life were interested in reading what I had to say. I have a hard time pinpointing any specific moments, because the whole experience has been so overwhelmingly positive.
Me: Do you think Organized Stores keep an eye of the fashion bloggers?
Kat: I definitely think that brands keep an eye on what bloggers are posting and saying about their products. However, in the past I believe brands have focused mainly on bloggers with larger followings. In the past year or so it seems that brands are starting to see the importance of micro-influencers when it comes to marketing. Micro-influencers (1,000 – over 10,000 followers, subscribers) can drive a lot of traffic to a store if they give a positive review of a product, or wear a brands clothing often. Personally, I have had brands interact with my posts on social media (likes, comments, ect.). Therefore I think it is safe to say that they are very aware about what bloggers are saying about their products and how even small bloggers can have an overall impact.
Me: Whom do you envision as your target reader?
Kat: I envision my target reader being a young professional or entrepreneur between the ages of 18-35. But in all honesty I think that anyone who has a love for fashion and beauty will enjoy reading my blog.
Me: There are a lot of people following you on your fashion blog. How do you manage this huge number of followers?
Kat: Other forms of social media such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter are major factors as to why I have the following that I do. By putting myself out there on all of those social media platforms I am able to reach a larger number of people on a daily basis.
Me: What motivates you to blog?
Kat: Other beauty and fashion bloggers really motivate me. Every time I go on Instagram, Pinterest or WordPress I see the content that is being put out by other bloggers. Sometimes I’ll see an outfit on someone with pieces I would never have thought to put together, but it looks amazing. This makes me look a bit closer at my own closet and try to look for pieces that I thought wouldn’t go well together before and make an outfit with them.
The same goes for the beauty side of my blog. I will see a colourful makeup look on Instagram and be inspired to try something similar. I think that is one of the amazing things about being a part of the blogger community, it is always so inspiring.
Me: That’s great to know. So my last question for you would be would you like to give any Any advice for all our fashionable readers?
Kat: Use fashion trends as guidelines, not rules. Find your own personal style and rock it, regardless of what the current trends are.
Hello everyone. How have you all been? I guess great. Today I am back on Interview Zone with the interview of Miss Charlene Lowe Kemp from UK. As the title suggests Charlene is a Paranormal Investigator and a ferocious one. As everyone who reads my interviews might know I do a lot of investigation before updating anything. It took me a long time to find her. Anyways I won’t bore you all anymore and skip to the interview directly.
Moni: Hello Charlene, welcome to Interview Zone. So shall we start?
Charlene: You are welcome. Yes sure.
Moni: So Charlene is paranormal investigating your profession or is it a time pass for you?
Charlene: Paranormal investigating for me is a passion. I think everyone within the paranormal knows that to class it as a profession it would have to be a full time job and it would have to pay the bills at least to do it full time. Paranormal investigating as no professional tag to it as such, there is no set guidelines or qualifications you can take to be classed as a ‘professional within the field, I think people sometimes get the tag as a professional investigator when they have a certain amount of experience (this is normally based on years) and what you present as your findings. The key is to earn respect to be at least a creditable investigator within the community.
Moni: While investigating a place or house if you do not find anything on an investigation, does that mean the place is not haunted?
Charlene: No, activity can come in what I call waves. So people can experience a surge of activity for a number of days or weeks and things will just stop, weeks later activity can increase again. Locations that are alleged to be haunted I feel can be over worked with paranormal investigators investigating daily or every Friday or Saturday, which o think can affect the alleged haunting. Locations that aren’t investigated that much or have never been investigated seem to provide better evidence to put forward to suggest it may be haunted.
Moni: Do you take guests on your investigations?
Charlene: No I privately investigate, I used to run events where guests would attend but I found that by doing this I was just overlooking what was happening and wasn’t actually actively involved in the investigating. Many event teams won’t let their employees properly participant with the guests such as on the Ouija board in the fear that it may be suggested it was moved by the employee. It’s understandable why event teams do this but it takes the spark out of the investigator who wants to be involved I think.
Moni: You do not charge for an investigation so how do you make money?
Charlene: We don’t make any, a lot of people are in this field because they have a passion for it and something at some point triggered the fascination off in that person and I find that people do this for their own personal journey to gain the answers they need. There is ways which you can try and find for example writing books etc. but the total cost of your incoming would never amount to the money you have to pay out to do it for equipment, petrol, locations and so on.
Moni: Why do you not post all of the evidence you find at investigations?
Charlene: Facebook lives are a massive thing at the moment, it is a way of interacting with the public while you investigate and as well as yourself being there you have another set of eyes behind the camera to help. Facebook lives can be a good thing and they can provide good results for evidence but to me taking a camera and filming is a better way to investigate, you have better concentration and can review the footage much easier. If I have filmed an investigation I will post up my findings whether anything happened or not but reviewing footage and making an actual video of what happened is timely sometimes especially if you are the only one who does it. You also have to consider person consent too, if you are investigating a house the owner may not want to have it made public and that is completely understandable and their choice.
Moni: Can you help me with my psychic abilities – I have some questions?
Charlene: I can try to answer on possible ways to try and enhance your psychic abilities and offer things you could try and couldn’t promise they would work though.
Moni: Do you investigate every case reported to you?
Charlene: I offer advice to every case reported to me. I have found that 9 times out of 10 if a person reports activity they generally don’t want an investigation or they tend to back out on the last minute.
Moni: Do you do radio interviews or lectures?
Charlene: I was on pulse radio on the 22nd of May with Tom Warrington talking about all things paranormal. I have been asked to go to lectures at universities where I have said I would and their projects have fallen through and I was no longer needed to go, but in the future I would be happy to go and help out with lectures and projects, I see it as helping the field.
Moni: Are you currently adding members?
Charlene: I am currently recruiting in my team Yes, there is a certain way I think Every investigator works and I am looking closely and hand picking who I think would potentially be a credit to my team and who I can trust. Trust within the team is a massive thing.
Moni: Have you encountered any fake or fraud people in your field?
Charlene: I have worked with mediums who obviously do charge for readings and such for private readings and if the person agrees to pay this for a reading as long as the person is happy with paying for that reading and I can’t see a problem. I have seen other investigators con money from their following and fans before now. There is two incidents which stick in my mind and both investigators highly depend on donates to fund their investigations via YouTube. What each of these people did was go to YouTube and ask for money when they was experiencing personal issues within their life. They played on their following and their fans made them feel sad about their personal issues and sadly those who were blind to what they were doing and donated. The first time I saw it the person more or less said he was going to quit the paranormal then proceeded to ask for donations and even got his son involved on it (he stated he was homeless) Myself I wouldn’t go to my paranormal YouTube to tell my followers my personal life and to beg, I don’t see it being professional in the slightest. but these people know their following love them and hang on everything they say and people become threatened why they won’t provide them with the paranormal anymore…but what gets me is in the week that followed he got 2k in donations if not more and posted a brand new niche watch up….only weeks later, his friend who he works with did the exact same and for me I just don’t believe it and anyone in a personal situation like they say they were in should not be relying on their following, there is professional help they know and could have sought instead therefore I have to question their motives.
Moni: Any Particular case which had a severe impact on you? If yes please do tell us the story.
Charlene: Not a case as such but a specific haunting Yes, I recently went on the search for a haunting of a lady named Elizabeth Sheppard, who was killed in 1817 on her way back from Mansfield after trying to find work. She was only 17 at the time and she had been brutally murdered. Her killer was named as Charles Rotherham but after plenty of research on the case I found that it could be possible that he never actually did killed her and he may have been framed for it. His name has been placed on her memorial stone as the killer but the evidence suggested now strongly suggests that he never actually did it.
The haunting is of this memorial stone, it is placed where she is murdered and the hauntings of this lady is normally if this stone has to be moved.
I don’t no why but travelling to and from the locations of this case and looking into the research more, I felt a certain attachment to get this story out there and I came back and wrote a piece of it which can be found here
I am not the only one that has felt a strong connection to this case some have spent 30 odd years looking into it to find the answers. It’s like Elizabeth may haunt the area due to maybe the wrong person being convicted and it isn’t just myself like I say feels like that, it is a case that has seem to play on a lot of people and pull every ones heart strings.
Moni: Wow! Well moving on to the last question I am thinking of starting my own group. What advice can you give me?
Charlene: My advice would be to go out weekly, look at all the different theories and concepts that make up the paranormal and explore them to find your own style of investigation. There is no right or wrong way, the paranormal hasn’t even been proven to exist but I think you have to find your own style on how you want to come across whether that be spiritual, scientific or extremely skeptical.
My personal advice to anyone starting out is be open minded….never dismiss something completely without fully looking at the whole situation and analyzing it first and never think you are an expert because there is no experts in this field just people with more knowledge!
Moni: Charlene, I will end the interview here. It was a great conversation and it was lovely having you here.
Charlene: I loved it as well. Thank you.

Today in Interview Zone I have writer/director E.Walker whose rose to fame with her first story CSI. She’s an American and she specializes in thriller stories though she is very young, she writes very well and she is the sweetest person I have ever spoken to. So without further delay I will post the interview with her.
Moni: Hello Miss Walker welcome to Interview Zone. So here I will go with my first question. You technically writer on thriller. Why so?
Walker: Well, I write so because I have so many ideas in my head about them and just keeping them there is horrible. I like to express my ideas and that’s why I began writing.
Moni: Interesting answer. Apart from episode where else do you write? Do you own a blog?
Walker: I do not write on anything but Episode. I am trying to get into Wattpad but I don’t know yet.
Moni: Which novelists do you admire?
Walker: I don’t really look up to any novelist.
Moni: Well, ummm, that’s pretty impressive. So apart from writing what do you do? What are your hobbies?
Walker: My hobbies are playing violin(nerdy but who cares) and I do sports such as soccer and track.
Moni: I don’t think it’s nerdy. I personally would like to learn violin someday. Reader’s love your stories, your work so have you ever thought of publishing your own novel?
Walker: I have thought about publishing a novel but I believe I’m too young as of right now. A friend and I are writing a story but it is nearly impossible that we will ever publish it.
Moni: Someday you will definitely. Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Walker: No actually. I always and still do want to be an FBI agent. That’s what inspired my first story CSI.
Moni: Okay, what are your upcoming works?
Walker: Some of my upcoming works are a winter break story with a terrible twist and a story about a new town being plagued with murders.
Moni: Final question (promise!): do you have any advice for the yet-to-be-published writers reading this?
Walker: Yes, it does not matter how many readers or views you get. But also don’t give up on your story. Make it advanced, don’t make it simple. Simple is boring. Thinking of new ideas, not ones from other authors. Be original.
Moni: That’s all for today Thank you so much Walker for this lovely interview.
Walker: You’re welcome dear.
P.S Miss Walker did not want us to use her real image so we used her anime.
So readers, this was Miss Walker’s interview. See you soon.
