Name & Age:
Beth Graves & 49 years young!
Blog name & URL:
Beth and Beauty ♥ http://www.bethandbeauty.com
How did you come up with your blog name?
Honestly, I have always had trouble with my self-esteem and I had never associated Beth with the word Beauty. So I decided to use this name so every time I typed it or shared the name, I would be reminding myself that I am beautiful. I may not be as beautiful as you, but I am as beautiful as me. I heard this saying from a you tuber I watch, Karen Maitland, and it has really stuck with me.
When did you start blogging & Why did you start?
I started January 6, 2014. I started my blog to for once in my life to take the risk and put myself out there and to share my passion I seemed to have found within the last couple of years with makeup or anything beauty related. I wanted to do this to help any other lady out there that is 40+ years old to realize that it is never to late do things to make yourself feel better about yourself whether it is just as simple as putting a little makeup on or learning how to accept yourself with your flaws. We all have them. I want to actually share beauty tips for the real woman, not the woman who society has made so many us believe what we have to look like in order to be a real woman, with no flaws. I also wanted to share my weight loss journey for the last couple of years and how I lost 120 pounds.
What is your favorite part of being a blogger?
I guess I would have to say my favorite part is just to get to share the joy of new beauty tips that I have learned that has worked for me. Also getting to share my excitement over new beauty products I have found. I really love when someone leaves me comments on a blog post because I love finding new friends to talk to about the things I love, because so many of my friends that is not my “online friends” are not so into beauty products and tips as I am.
What keeps you inspired to blog?
This is a hard one but a question that has come to me at the right time. I recently had to take a short 3 day break from blogging because I got so caught up in the stats that it was making my anxiety worse. While on this break I seen people still coming, reading and commenting on my blogs posts and that is what has inspired me to continue to blog. It made me feel like I have made a difference in someones day. That is why I want to continue, I want to try to put a smile of someone’s face that hasn’t smiled in a while and make them remember why they are special and can make a difference no matter their age.
Do you have regular beauty blogs that I read?
Yes, I read: Hello Pretty Little Bird, Slashed Beauty, Beauty Broadcast, MissCrystalMakeup, Maskcara are just a few I can think of off the top of my head. I try to make time every week to try to add to my blogging list through Bloglovin and Google +.
What is your HOLY GRAIL beauty product and why?
It would have to be my Anastasia Brow Kit and the Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil. I have never been able to make my eyebrows look decent until I went to an Anastasia Brow Studio and one of their stylist waxed and shaped my brows. She not only did this but she showed me how to define my brows with these products. I never knew how much your eyebrows can make on your face.
Is there a beauty product that you’ve tried and will never try again? Why?
Yes!!! I tried the Sally Hansen Face Hair Removing Cream and Ohhhh!! Myyyy!! Gooosh!! I thought my face was going to burn off. I have sensitive skin and it took a few days for my face to actually not hurt. I think they should have named it Sally Hansen Face Remover Cream. I will stick to just shaving those fine little hairs…..LOL!!
If you could go back in time to 5 years ago, what beauty tip would you give yourself?
Always wash off my makeup before I go to bed and use some type of night and day cream on my face.
What piece of advice would you give to new inspiring beauty bloggers?
To make sure you really have the passion for it. To realize it takes a lot of time and hard work. MOST IMPORTANTLY: DO NOT GET TO CAUGHT UP WITH YOUR STATS AT FIRST!!!!
Stay tuned for next weeks Beauty Blogger Spotlight!
You may be next!
