How did you get into blogging and what inspired you to start up Emily & Jordan?

- have a passion for design, interiors, and kids fashion

- go to local markets and buy gorgeous handmade items

- buy and sell a lot of clothes so I started my own groups on Facebook

Tell us a bit more about what your social media/ blogs include.
Alongside my cute kids wearing clothes, I create interesting baby/kids clothing and decor posts such as

- "Flatlays" - lying clothes and decor flat

- "Stacklays" - stacking clothes and decor on my hand or on an object

- "Hanglays" - hanging clothes and decor off hooks

- "Shelfies" - decor and clothes displayed in various ways on shelves

- There are also styles such as "chairlays" and "ladderlays" I am yet to try as well.


Do you have any future plans for your blog for the next few years?
I am really enjoying what I am doing and I'm excited for what is in store for the next few years, but open to see where this leads us.
I do however plan to

- continuously improve the quality and styling of my posts

- undertake fabulous collaborations with businesses
