Q & A with Jenah Yamamoto (A.K.A Gypsy One)
We met up with ultimate babe of Missguided @gypsyone. We asked some questions, she wore some clothes, it was hot.
When did you first start your blog?
Just launched at the beginning of April so now one month in!
How did you first get into it?
I’ve always wanted to have a blog where I can give a bit more information about my personal life, whether it be style, travel, and even beauty. It was a long time coming since my Tumblr days but it’s finally launched.
What does a day in the life of you look like?
Being a creative it’s hard to really nail it down. Life is so weird and spontaneous when you don’t have the typical day job so it can really vary from FIFA on the couch to running around New York City like a chicken with its head cut off.
How do you keep your content fresh?
Good question… I try to post maybe once a day and I alternate regularly between random photos I’ve taken and random photos of myself. I tend to not post too many pics of the same outfit/thing as I can find it looks a bit repetitive. Who knows if all this analysing I do even works!
You give us serious insta-envy. What’s been your favourite place that you’ve travelled?
So hard to say really. Travelling all over the world and experiencing so many different cultures really makes me appreciate coming home to Hawaii so much more than before. I guess that’s part of why I am so lucky, not many people get to call paradise home.
What are your top 3 beauty essentials for when you’re on the go?
1. Rollerball perfume because smelling good is everything
2. Any sort of lip balm
3. Mini mirror
Your photography is insane. What tips do you have for the perfect holiday pics?
Thank you! I’ve been obsessed with photography since I was 15 and it’s my real passion so I guess you can say practice makes perfect! The best tip I have for photos is the sooner you can understand lighting and what is flattering for you, the better your photos will look. Play around with it. Highlights and shadows can make all the difference in a picture.
How do you edit your photos?
I have about 15 different apps on my phone as I think everyone does these days. My favourite is VSCO.
What’s your go-to outfit?
I’m a jeans and a tee kinda girl.
What are your must-have pieces for your carry-on?
Well, I’ve recently simplified my life to only travelling with a carry-on unless my trip was longer than a week! So with that said I always have my laptop, clothes, shoes and toiletries in my roller bag. Always supplemented with a tote or backpack carrying the remainder like my purse, makeup, and accessories.
What’s currently on your playlist?
Kendrick Lamar’s album. It’s so good.
Which emoji best describes you?
That little sneaky face. 😏
Snapchat or Instagram?
Whose account gives you major Insta envy?
Too many to name! Song of Style, MadelineJoyRelph, Mimi Elashiry, Olivia Lopez. So many more but I love following accounts that create beautiful imagery.
Who would be in your dream girl gang?
I already have it and they’re my best friends. Lucky me!
What’s your life motto?
Buy it now, cuz you’ll regret it later when you didn’t.
What’s on the agenda for the rest of 2017?
Summer! Travelling Europe with my boyfriend and working on some exciting new things coming up.
