Influencer, podcast host and champion of sustainable fashion, Bianca Foley (@biancaffoley) spoke to team MC about lockdown, styling jewellery and restaurants that she can't wait to get back to. Bianca's style has always been one we've admired- think lots of gold jewels, statement print dresses and bold lip colours, Bianca brings a touch of everyday glamour to our Insta feed that we thought you'd love as much as we do!
HOW DID YOU FIRST GET INTO CONTENT CREATION?
I started a blog 6 years ago when my friend encouraged me to start writing. It sort of evolved from that point and I started to create content in all forms!
a lot has changed since we last spoke - what's a typical day like for you at the moment?
Wow, I still cannot believe that we have been living through a pandemic for a year. At the moment, I get up and try to workout, check personal emails over a coffee, shower and then start my day job at 9am. In my lunch break I walk the dogs or plan content that needs to be sorted and then back to work till around 5pm. I try to use some time in the evenings to work on my content creation. After that its dinner and some work-free, chill time! I’ve used this period to watch all the shows I never had time for before, like The US Office or Parks and Recreation.
where is home?
Home is currently Selhurst in South London, we bought a house towards the end of last summer. I grew up in North London in Enfield. I'm a true London girl through and through.
Three words your best friend would use to describe you?
I actually asked my best friend to answer this question because I had no idea, she said "Independent, ambitious and kind hearted". Now I feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
what's your number 1 tip for styling jewellerY?
I like to layer, rings, necklaces, bracelets all look great layered up and I like to mix up finishes - so I will wear a chunky gold bangle with a thin gold chain bracelet with a watch.
which piece of jewellery couldn't you live without?
Gold Hoops - all day, everyday.
the pandemic has kept us inside for a long time now... if you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would love to be on the Amalfi Coast eating pasta, sunning myself and drinking some lovely wine without a care in the world.

WHAT'S YOUR BEST GUILTY PLEASURE?
Real Housewives of Atlanta. I am way too invested!
WHAT'S NEXT FOR YOU?
WHAT'S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU'VE BEEN GIVEN?
Do everything with purpose.
I love eating out. Restaurants are my favourite places. We have made a few bookings and I cannot wait. We are going to Wingman’s brunch (because I love my wings :p) and have booked Gloria’s, their truffle pasta puts me into a trance! At present, we are only allowed to dine outside - so Alto by San Carlo is on the list for sure!
