MixMaker Spotlight: Meet Candy & Crystal from TravelPockets
We're excited to feature Candy & Crystal from TravelPockets this week in our MixMaker Spotlight. You can catch these ladies on Mix curating awesome travel collections from hidden gems to plane hacks to the latest fashion trends (not limited to airport looks!). Check out what they have to say about Mix and some tips for fellow bloggers from our Q&A.
What do you like about Mix?
We love that the site is clean and super easy to navigate.
How would you describe Mix to a friend?
It's a space where you can store all your favorite articles that you find on the web. You can easily refer back to the articles and even organize them to your liking.
What's the most recent Mix you created and what inspired this collection?
Our most recent mix is "The Cutest Cafes." Whenever we are traveling we always end up visiting the most adorable cafes and wanted to share some of our recent finds as well as future ones we'd love to visit.
Why did you decide to start your blog, TravelPockets?
We were both already frequently traveling (and at times living in other countries) and often got asked by friends and family for recommendations and help planning their travels. We finally decided to create Travel Pockets so that we had a place where we could refer everyone to. We never imagined our tips and recommendations were going to flourish outside of our immediate circle and are so happy we are able to help others plan their future travels.
If you could give fellow bloggers one piece of advice, what would that be?
We blog about our travels because we enjoy traveling and sharing our stories. We never get tired of creating content because it's just something we love doing and will continue to do it since traveling is truly a hobby of ours. We hear that a lot of new bloggers get overwhelmed by the amount of time and work it takes to learn the ins-and-outs of blogging. It can definitely be challenging, but we just went with the flow and learned things as they came to us. We weren't in any rush and if it's something you are passionate about, you should be enjoying it!
If you had to live in one city for the rest of your life, what city would that be and why?
That's the toughest question you could ask a travel blogger! I (Candy) recently moved to San Diego and absolutely love it here. If I was told I could never move again, I definitely wouldn't mind staying put in San Diego. Crystal would probably choose anywhere in Iceland since she's in love with that country.
