What’s your blog all about?
Unlimited by JK is a fashion and street style blog, with focus mostly in Bournemouth and London.

Describe your blog in three words
Fashion and photojournalism.

Why did you start your blog?
When I was applying for my journalism course at Bournemouth University, the online tutor, Liisa Rohumaa, recommended to me The Sartorialist street style blog. When I became a journalism undergraduate a year later, I was inspired to do the same. We are encouraged on the course to have a blog, and while many of my coursemates opted for an online portfolio, I wanted to produce something more niche.

How long have you been running it?
Since November 2010.

What makes it different from the rest?
Unlike most fashion blogs I happen upon, the fashion content is wide and varied, featuring street style, catwalk, personal style, written features, photo and video features, comment, interviews and more. I suppose there is something for everyone.

Who would be your dream guest blogger?
I don't have guest bloggers, but I would love to start an online video series guest starring some of my favourites, including Olivia Purvis, Jayne Robinson and Paige Calvert. Something fun and lighthearted.

What was your last blog post about?
I have been at London Fashion Week shooting street style and attending the showcases, so this week on my blog has been very focused on the stylish individuals and the new collections I have seen.

What’s been your “blog highlight”?
I won a competition with Adidas NEO to see Justin Bieber in Miami. While I am not a Belieber, there was no way I could turn down such a huge opportunity. Afterwards, I wrote a tongue-in-cheek commentary about the concert and Justin's crazy fans, for which I have received plenty of positive remarks from my readers, online and in person. Overall, it has fewer views than other blog posts, but it has had the best feedback.
