Hey guys! Today on #12Questions12Answers we have a beautiful, young, travel and lifestyle blogger.
Lily Tjon, popular on Instagram as Hashtagbylily, started her blog in 2013. She attributes her motivation to her friends.
“My friends encouraged me to start a blog and after I finished my Master Informations Science, I was ready for a new and different challenge. What do I have to lose right?!”
Fast forward to 2018, Lily has proven beyond doubt that she made the right choice. Aside being nominated by Zalando for ‘Best newcomer blog 2015’, she’s acted in a Netherlands’ TV series called Fashionchick. Also, she’s collaborated with many top brands and stands as a true inspiration to rising bloggers. Lily is heavy on fashion, travel & beauty and there’s so much to learn from her lifestyle too. So let’s get to her interview, shall we?
