Brighton Influencer Spotlight: India Moon
Behind the Scenes of Brighton’s Favourite Influencers
As we all know, Brighton is a place full of creatives, but recently there has been a noticeable rise in the amount of stunning blogger feeds that show Brighton in its best light. The Brighton Influencer Spotlight is a series of Brighton babes that are creating stunning Instagram content and always find the prettiest houses to get their #OOTD.
Spending time on Instagram is now also a guide to find the newest places to eat and see the loveliest food before you’ve even looked up the menu. This interview series introduces fabulous influencers who live in Brighton or the surrounding area and take advantage of the best of what the city has to offer to create their content.
Next up, I managed to squeeze into India Moon’s busy schedule to hear what she has to say about Brighton. India, 23, is a well know Brighton Blogger and Instagrammer.
Describe your blog in 3 words:
Fun, exciting, pink
Brighton’s best background:
So many places… The lanes are perfect for colourful houses or finding the little hidden gems around Tidy Street and places like that! There is also the Royal Pavilion which is so, so gorgeous and the seafront has so many incredible places to walk along and feel inspired by! I also would say Clifton Hill area, near Seven Dials as there are some lovely big white houses, if thats someone’s kind of thing. The Light is always stunning there! Everywhere is just gorgeous!

Favourite piece of equipment:
Has to be my Olympus Pen EPL 8, because I photograph on it, film on it, and pretty much have it with me whenever I go!
How did you start as an influencer?
I started about two years ago now, but it was always on and off. I started whilst working in retail before going into studying Film full time at university in London. I decided I wanted to do something I enjoyed and felt like I could put all my creativity into, and everyone around me kept saying I should give it a go - so I did. It’s just always been a hobbie and love of mine and I still can’t believe it’s now my job.
Blogging saved me from some dark times and stresses over the last two years, as it was a constant escapism for me and I just love being able to have my own personal place to express myself and connect with other inspirational people!
Tell me a bit more about yourself
I finished Uni on October the 1st (which was a relief) and since then have been trying freelance life and started full time blogging, and I can’t believe this is my job! It is always such a pinch me moment and I just can’t get enough of it all. I’m saving to travel in April next year as I’m off to create in a few different countries I’ve been dreaming of for years.
So, I’m very excited to transition next year into travel and fashion content! In the meantime, I am diving into Youtube and working with brands I love and I’m so excited to share more of the adventures with everyone!
What do you love about living in Brighton?
Everything. The fact that it’s near the sea, the countryside the city and an 1-2 hours from London! Just the perfect place to have the best of everything, and I couldn't think of moving anywhere else right now!
