We’re on a mission to showcase the best content creators in the region. The social media stars and InstaGirls make it look oh so easy, but we know it isn’t.
Today we’re sitting down for a cuppa with Amanda Rushforth, sustainability advocate, lover of the outdoors and a beautiful person inside and out.
Name: Amanda Rushforth
Account handle: @amandarushforth
Tell us a little bit about you:
I’m an advocate for sustainability in fashion and have launched a capsule collection with @by.M.A.R.Y, an ocean lover and on the board of directors at @azraqme, as well as a fitness enthusiast.
How many years ago did you start blogging/content creating?
I started blogging 5 years ago and have been creating content ever since.
Tell us one of your content creation secrets!
I love finding cool shadows! They give the best texture and dimension in pictures.
What’s your favourite content creation app or tool?
VSCO for a barely-there filter (G3 at 50%)
When did you know you “made it”?
Hahahah not sure I have? But being recognized for my commitment to the planet and sustainability is my favourite compliment.
Come on, share your worst blunder!
I may have put myself in a few precarious places for an instagram op, much to the dismay of my fiancé.
Tell us one account that inspires you that we should follow?
I like snackable content curation and informative pages like @thesustainablefashionforum
What is your best piece of advice for anyone starting out?
Identify your niche. Then focus creating the page around that. Don’t compromise your ethos for $ either.
So, there you have it. A little insight into the world of Amanda and some great tips for creating content that stands out, just remember to stay true to yourself!
