Former pro wrestlers, with the ring names Hannah and Holly Blossom, turned lifestyle bloggers? That is the short version of the Blossom Twins' careers in the last years. But we wanted to know the long version.
The UK-born and raised twin sisters, Lucy and Kelly, have made a name for themselves on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and are nowadays focused on their love for books and story-telling.
Read on to learn more about their journey, their favorite twin moment and how being twins have played a part in their careers.
1. Who are you and what do you do?
We’re Lucy and Kelly, aka The Blossom Twins, from Manchester, England. We are former professional wrestlers, now authors, lifestyle bloggers, and nursery nurses.
The name The Blossom Twins has pretty much stuck after eleven years of wrestling, so it seemed a natural fit for our blog. It’s more than just a name, it’s very much our journey and a reminder that all dreams are possible.
2. How did you get started?
Lucy started our blog, theblossomtwins.com, back in 2012 as a means of having a place to write. Kelly later came on board and the blog expanded to cover a wider range of lifestyle topics and tons more book reviews.
Being avid readers, writing books was a natural progression. We love to tell stories and also get lost in them. Lucy’s debut romance novel was just published this month (Editor's note: get your hand on a copy here).
3. What's your favorite twin moment?
Getting to wrestle alongside each other and live our childhood dream of becoming a professional wrestling tag team has to be up there in our favourite twin moments.
In addition to appearing on Sky One’s A League of Their Own with James Corden here in England. We got to do our tag team finishing move on him and we just kept looking at each other like, is this real?
4. Do you see being a twin as a strength or weakness?
We definitely say a strength in that it has given us some incredible opportunities. Having a built-in best friend has allowed us to be confident when stepping out of our comfort zones, as you know you’ve always got someone by your side that’s got your back.
Plus, it’s a great icebreaker when meeting new people.
5. Did you always want to be in business together?
Yes!! As far as wrestling goes, from day one we knew we were going to be a tag team, we didn’t care for singles competition. We’ve always been a team and wanted to pursue it together.
We do love doing our separate projects, like when it comes to writing books, but even then we have books we are writing together. Furthermore, building our blog is a team effort, we love creating together. Working alongside each other is always our plan.
6. What do you think is the biggest misconception about twins?
That we’re the same and like all the same things. We have tons in common and certainly share some of the same interests, but we have very different personalities and that sometimes surprises people.
7. What is the cheesiest twin joke anyone has pulled on you?
We don’t think anyone has ever pulled a twin joke on us, we tend to just get asked funny questions from time to time.
8. Is there any advice you wish you had received from other twins growing up?
Maybe that it’s ok to be your own person. When people tend to think you are the same it can be hard to break free from that idea and feel comfortable being you when you’re always being compared to your twin.
We love each other more than anything, love being together and are proud to be ‘the twins’, but it’s nice having your own identity too. That can take a little time to figure out, but don’t be afraid of it.
