Sponsor Spotlight // Cheeky Cheeky

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

Hi! My name is Carmen and I run a little blog called Cheeky Cheeky as well as an Etsy shop, Shop Cheeky Cheeky! I'm a 23-year-old student, blogger, Etsy shop owner and My Little Pony enthusiast. 

How did your blog & shop get started?

I started Cheeky Cheeky after I decided to quit my job and move from New York City back to Ohio this past Summer. Leaving New York gave me the time and space to start writing more, which I love. I try to write things I like to read- funny stories, advice, fashion bits, life adventures, and now- shop updates! My blog has introduced me to so many amazing people who actually enjoy reading my ramblings, and I'm so thankful for them. 

I launched Shop Cheeky Cheeky with my dear friend Megan two months ago and I'm so happy about it. It is a little Etsy vintage shop with lots of dresses, accessories & all around cuteness. It's the most exciting thing I've ever done and I'm so stoked to document it all on my blog!  

What inspires you the most?

In my blogging, I would say funny ladies like Sloane Crosley, Mindy Kaling and Sophia Rossi are HUGE inspirations for me. In terms of my shop, I'm totally inspired by 60s and 70s style icons like Bridget Bardot, Bianca Jagger... And of course, Rachel Zoe :)

What advice do you have for anyone who is looking to open up their own etsy or online shop?

My biggest piece of advice would be to just do it! (Yes, technically I'm quoting a Nike ad on that one.) Seriously though, stop putting it off and launch already! Getting going is the hardest part of starting an online shop, but once you do, you'll be happy you did. It's so much fun! 

What are your future goals & plans, where do you want to be in 5+ years?

My parents keep asking me this question and I haven't had a good answer since I was in high school and I could say "umm... in college?" Being an adult is hard!! As of right now, I would say that in 5 years I'd like to be continuing blogging, doing some freelance writing, running Shop Cheeky Cheeky and maybe even getting a storefront. Fingers crossed! Stop by my blog and say hi!
