You know that moment when you’re scrolling through Instagram’s trending photos and you come across ‘that image’ that instantly receives your undivided attention? Yea, that’s pretty much a moment that style blogger and social media influencer, Francis Lola (aka Flamcis) owns. This pink-haired beauty is making her mark in the digital world, inspiring fellow style-enthusiasts worldwide to hit the follow button.

With her captivating content, charming personality and standout head-to-toe looks, it’s no surprise that Francis’ loyal social media following (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube) of more than 265,000 people combined continues to grow day by day.

WS: It’s pretty obvious you’re killin’ it in the social media world. What is it about social media specifically that you LOVE?

Francis Lola: I love being able to connect with people on social media. I just hate being alone and love to be around people. I even met a lot of my best friends today through social media and blogging!

WS: How would you describe your personal style?

Francis Lola: I always use the words girly and edgy. Sometimes a mixture of both. I’ve always been a girly-girl. I love dresses, skirts, anything flowy and feminine. But I also love to add a little bit of edge to my look. Like black combat boots, a leather choker, or a black leather jacket.

WS: Ok, so we have to admit we’re crushin’ on your current hair color. Why pink?

Francis Lola: Pink has always been one of my favorite colors. I actually had purple hair before this. I decided to give pink a try, and have been committed to it ever since! I think it really goes with my skin tone and has, kind of, become a part of my identity!

WS: Describe your signature everyday makeup look.

Francis Lola: I love a mauvey brown smokey eye. Nothing too dark, but definitely a thick eyeliner and dramatic wing. Some dramatic lashes to open my eyes. A little bit of contour and peachy color to my face, and always a mauve-ish lip color.

WS: Sooo, we know you like to travel. Do you have any exciting getaways planned for this summer?

Francis Lola: I’m actually headed to Miami in a few weeks for Miami Swim Week. After that, I’m hoping Bali and also another big trip hopping around southeast Asia. I haven’t decided exactly where yet, but Bangkok is definitely on the list!
