About Miss Hope Elizabeth:
Miss Hope Elizabeth is a life and style blog with a little bit of everything thrown in. I’ve blogged on and off for several years, but fully committed this year after falling in love with wedding blogging on Honeysuckle Brides! Here at MHE you’ll find tons of posts on beauty, fashion, seasonal living, organization, Kentucky living, and much more! Grab some coffee or sweet tea and enjoy!❤
Hi guys, I’m Hope! I’m the face behind Miss Hope Elizabeth! I am a 24 year old wife, dog mom to a sassy little pitbull/mini pinscher mix named Riley, and a Kentucky girl! I love organizing and planning, makeup, holiday decor, dogs, Pinterest, home decor, and all things girly! Floral patterns are my favorite, and I love anything rose gold. Aside from this personal blog and my YouTube channel I also run Honeysuckle Brides: A Kentucky wedding blog! Check out my life list here. Thank you so much for stopping by!
What type of camera do you use?
It depends on what I’m shooting. For fashion/OOTD posts I normally use my Nikon D3200. For YouTube videos, thumbnails, and shots of my makeup I use a Sony NEX-5TL, because it has a flip screen and autofocus (my Nikon D3200 doesn’t). For most of my Instagram posts I use my iPhone 6s Plus. I always use my ring light or soft box lights when I use my iPhone though, because if you don’t have great lighting the photos will turn out too dark or grainy.
What are your favorite apps for editing photos on your phone?
I use several! The main two I use are Facetune and Lightroom CC. I also use VSCO, Afterlight, and Colorstory occasionally!
Why did you start a blog/YouTube channel?
I love anything beauty related, and I wanted my own space to share my thoughts! I honestly needed a new hobby after graduating high school too (I did marching band/colorguard, concert band, and winterguard in high school so it kept me busy before this point). When I first started my blog and YouTube channel I was SUPER shy. It’s helped me overcome that so much, and I’ve met a ton of great people along the way! I truly love connecting with my followers and fellow bloggers/vloggers!
I didn’t expect the accent! Where are you from?
I’m from Kentucky! I’m originally from the southeastern part of Kentucky, but I live in central Kentucky now!
