Welcome back to #gossipstation beautiful people where we are joined by the very talented model and rising blogger/vlogger Arabella Daho for a gossip. She’s modelled for brands such as Burberry and has a social following that is larger than our morning jumbo juice and that is ridiculously big. So, let’s get to it…
Arabella, thank you so much for joining us! Can you start off by telling us a little bit about yourself...
Hello everyone! My name is Arabella Daho and I have a blog called Amazing Arabella which is about growing up, exploring life and showing kids and teens different experiences. As well as looking at fashion I also like to explore the world beauty.
We love your blog! Ok so we know you're only 11 but how and when did your career begin?
Well I started modelling when I was three! My first modelling job was with Junior Magazine then I was the main face of the Spring Summer Early Leaning Centre Campaign. I really enjoyed it and before I knew it I was modelling for different brands like M&S, Littlewoods, BHS and Selfridges. It was very cool! :)
Wow how exciting - you were an early bloomer to the industry! So, tell us how did you then get in to blogging/vlogging etc?
My mum suggested to her brother and sisters to start blogging. They then formed the collective "Meet the vloggers" and it worked. After that, she asked me if I wanted to do the same and I said, "Yeah, why not. We can give it a go."
Thank golly you did as what an exciting journey you’ve had so far! Is there a project that you've worked on to date that has been your favourite and why?
The best thing about having your own blog is that you get to do what interests you so all the blogs that I feature are very cool. I especially loved the ‘X Factor Blog’, the ‘Harry Potter Blog’, oh and the ‘be a star for the day Blog!’ They are all great :)
There’s nothing better other than being able to do what you enjoy! What is it about fashion and blogging that you love?
I love fashion and beauty! It’s a very important part of my life and growing up I’m learning all the time and finding my own personal style. For example, what works in regards to my hair, look, nails etc.
I especially love being able to blog about my great finds and style tips and then sharing it with my fan base.
It’s funny how much your style changes through the years isn’t it? You've worked with lots of different fashion brands but have you got one that stands out for you?
I loved Burberry that was so much fun! Nike and Adidas were great too! It's so nice to be able to work with different brands that have different clothing.
At the moment I am loving Monsoon. They have this great range called Storm by Monsoon. It’s a great new teen range! You have to check them out!
We are huge fans of Nike and Adidas! We shall have to check out Storm too! So, what's coming up for Amazing Arabella?
I will be featuring in the Storm by Monsoon campaign for 2016! I also have been asked to act in a new film called Absent. We start filming in January which is really exciting!
I’m also going to be on the catwalk at a charity event as I'm now the official face of the children’s charity “Mek ah Step” which helps kids get creative.
AND I'm going to be releasing a music track around Easter next year with a famous rapper!!
Blimmey you are one busy girl! How do you keep up with it all? AND you're turning 12 - can you tell us about your exciting birthday party that you have planned?
It’s like a sweet 16 but sweet 12 birthday party! It’s going to be held at a really cool exclusive venue and my Mum has organised both celebrity Dj’s and singers!
My friends will be there as well some kids that I worked with on the Michael Buble "Baby its cold outside" Xmas Video! There will be lots of friends and an evening of games, fun and laughter! I’m so excited and can’t wait!
Wow what a bash that will be! We wish you a fab-u-lous evening and hope that you have the BEST birthday with all of your friends and family!
Amazing Arabella – it has been so lovely speaking with you on the one and only Gossip Station! It’s been fab learning more about your exciting journey so far! All we can say is that 2016 is going to be a BIG year for you full of incredible projects! Keep us updated on ALL as we can’t wait to hear more about your music track.
