Lifestyle Blogger E.M. Ricchini Is Never Afraid to Stand Out

By , October 12, 2016

Name: E.M. Ricchini
Occupation: Lifestyle Blogger
Company: Lark & Lace

In a world of bloggers who work hard to stay on trend, E.M. Ricchini is someone who creates trends. She possesses a distinctive photography style and an impeccable editorial eye that sets her apart from others of her generation.

She’s truly a woman of many talents – photographer, marketer, fashion guru, and reporter, to name just a few. We had the pleasure of interviewing this budding maven on lessons she’s learned and what it’s like to carve your own path.

LAUREN: You’ve always been an independent thinker. How did this impact you in the work world?

E.M.: [I’ve realized] that school is not for me. As much as I would love to be an academic, it just didn’t work out that way. I’ve always been able to function in a challenging environment because I think through problems in a way that a lot of people wouldn’t. I just try to see things from different angles and a different perspective.

L: You’ve been blogging for a long time. What is the biggest lesson you have learned from your years of experience?

E: Something that I’ve learned through the years—that a lot of people don’t find out until much later on—is to only write about what you love. People will be able to see through it if you’re just throwing out a filler. Have fun with it, even if that means only posting twice a week.

L: In which area have you seen the most personal growth over the past few years?

E: I have a mental illness, and blogging and being open about it [has] been very healing for me. I’ve been learning to not try to hide it, because it’s a part of me. I try to be a mentor to people who may still be trying to figure out something that I’ve been living with for a long time.

L: If you could narrow it down to one thing, what makes you stand out from the crowd?

E: I try to be really intentional about the way I do things. Intentionality is really important to me. I think it’s important to not just do things for the sake of doing them, but to know what you want to get out of what you’re doing.

L: What advice would you give someone else who likes to think outside of the box?

E: It can be really frustrating because you feel like an outsider, and people aren’t going to understand you. But I realized that you don’t have to be understood to do what you want to do. It might take a little longer for your idea to catch on, but a lot of history’s greatest minds were independent thinkers. You just can’t give up.
