with Lydia from @deaddsouls

Social media really is part of all our daily lives, but have you noticed how some accounts just blow you away? From the amount of detail to volume of content and quality of the work – they stand out above the rest.

One of these accounts is @deaddsouls – with perfectly coordinated posts and outfits, muted colour and preciously edited videos. And to top it all off – 586k followers {and growing!} cannot get enough of her visual offerings.

To get a little deeper insight into the world and mind of Lydia – we reached out to see how she balances her aesthetic lifestyle – and to ask some of the most burnin’ questions for ya!

What inspired your Instagram handle?
My Instagram name is inspired by the song Dead Souls by Joy Division.

When is your birthday and what is your star sign?
My birthday is 25th April and I’m a Taurus!

Would you say you relate to you star sign’s characteristics? If y or n – why?
A lot! A Taurean is patient, sensible and introverted - just as I am. But we are also really stubborn haha.

How much time do you spend online each day? Would you say it’s a big factor in your life?
It is a big factor because it’s my full-time job now, but I spend more time creating content (taking pics, filming videos, editing) than scrolling through Instagram. I love the inspiration it gives me, but I realized that spending too much time online isn’t good for my mental health.

How do you spend your free time (when you’re not online!)?
I’m really into yoga! I also love spending time reading, painting, customizing clothes and obviously; watching Netflix haha!

What advice would you give people who want to grow a following like yours? What’s the best piece of advice that you could pass on?
My #1 tip is that you should enjoy the process! When I started my Instagram account nobody gained money or clothes from it, we did it because we really enjoyed fashion and it was really fun to share your outfits with people around the world. You only get good at something when you really enjoy it and have fun with it.

What KILLSTAR product are you currently obsessed with?
My Palmistry Tapestry and almost everything from the home decor section! Really needed to give your bedroom a witchy vibe.

Tell us a bizarre fact about you that your followers might not know?
I’m older than they think haha... I’m 28!

What’s your favourite scary movie?
I love the classics! The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

What’s your top tv/film/Netflix recommendations?
Friends, American Horror Story and Pretty Little Liars are my favourites!
