Why We're Obsessed With This Beach Bum
Halley Elefante is a health & wellness influencer as well as a blogger. After living in several different states, Halley moved to Hawaii and launched Salty Blonde with her photographer boyfriend. As Halley has a passion for clothes and fashion she decided Hawaii was the perfect place for her to pursue her love of the industry.
Salty Blonde was a blog inspired by Halley’s sister while their family was living in New York City. To escape from a dead end bartending job, Halley relocated to Hawaii and began to design outfits that embraced a combination of the styles she saw being worn on the East Coast and BOHO style.
The Salty Blondes Reveals Her Fashion Inspiration
In a refreshingly honest interview, Halley confessed that “No Bullsh*t” is her manifesto in life. When asked why she chose that phrase she revealed that it was because of her life experiences to date and because of how she was raised. Halley also revealed that her inspiration for her sense of fashion came from her mother.
As an influential blogger and fashion guru, Halley first built a social media following on Instagram by simply posting pictures of herself in carefully chosen outfits. She would tag the designer of her outfit in its picture in the hopes of getting it seen and she had success in doing so. She also credits her soar in popularity on Instagram to her photo captions, some of which were more brutally honest than the average Instagram user would expect. Captions are something that Halley is always mindful of, as she believes the secret to an Instagram post people will love is a clever caption and a stylish outfit shot in good lighting.
The Salty Blonde Takes Over Social Media
A self-proclaimed “non-tech” person, Halley has admitted that before she began using Instagram she had barely even sent an email. Instagram was the only social media Halley knew how to use and she embraced this knowledge to connect with her fans and with fashion designers.
Halley makes it a point to interact with those Instagram users who post questions to her about her photos. This is one thing that has led to her having 387,000 followers on the site, where she can be found @the_salty_blonde. She can also be found on Facebook @theSaltyBlonde, where she has thousands of people following her in hopes of getting a glimpse at her latest outfit. On Twitter she can be found @thesaltyblonde.
Though Halley has now become comfortable being influential in the fashion blogging industry that was not always the case. She has admitted than in the beginning it felt awkward because people had so many preconceived notions about who an influencer really was. Halley has also said that she wants to use her role as an influencer to inspire confidence in girls and make them feel like they can be themselves without being judged for it. Her goal is for young women to feel comfortable in their own body no matter what shape or size they are. She has become a role model for young girls everywhere.

Get To Know This Multi-Talented Model
Camilla Deterre isn’t what you’d picture as the average model. For one, she didn’t originally aspire to walk the runways.

Eventually, she transitioned to getting in front of the camera. Here are a few fun facts about this multi-talented model.
Camilla Deterre Is Not Just A Face
Camilla’s shown through various projects that she is deeply committed to being known for her creative energy as well. She’s explored acting, with two IMDB credits to her name.

Instead of hiding the dark circles that she once said have plagued her since childhood, she embraces them by refusing to hide behind makeup in her personal life. She also prefers doing shoots where this flaw is showcased. She believes people don’t have to look perfect and embrace a false image of themselves to be liked. In fact, many articles about her stress her fun personality and engaging vibe. She fills her Instagram with pictures that show off freckles and messy hair as well.
Camilla Deterre Is Not The Typical Public Figure
Where most people in a more public career path are all over social media and have a website to tie it all together, Camilla seems to be embracing the new idea of “being where it matters most.” Her Facebook is a private profile that has most information locked down, and she’s nowhere to be found on twitter.
