How did you come up with your blog name?
To be honest I really just wanted something simple and on point, I never expected to get any views or followers on my blog, So I just kept it with my name and beauty in it as that is what my blog is all about. If I had of known I would get views and followers maybe I would have picked a more unique name for my blog, but I’m glad I chose it now.
When did you start blogging & Why did you start?
I started blogging the 29th Of January 2014. To be honest I have wanted to do a blog for years but only had the courage to do it now. I suffer very badly with anxiety and always felt anxious about starting a blog. Until I stumbled upon Zoella’s (Zoe, Beauty blogger and Youtuber) blog post “Say Yes”. She talked about dealing with anxiety and that saying yes to things isn’t always a bad thing and to stop thinking “What If?”. Its better to try something than to never try it at all. So that’s when I decided its time I started doing something I knew I wanted to do for ages and to share it. Reading blogs and having such a passion for beauty I knew that this was the perfect way to express my love for the both and it was the best decision I made.
What is your favorite part of being a blogger?
I actually love the interaction you have with your followers and to see someone take a second to read or leave a comment on your blog post, honestly you don’t know how happy that makes me. I love the support all us bloggers give one another and its such an amazing community to be apart of.
What keeps you inspired to blog?
Reading other blogs and reading comments on my blog defiantly keeps me inspired to blog as it’s a great booster.
Do you have regular beauty blogs that you read?
Oh I have so many!! I mainly read all the beauty bloggers like Fleur De Force, Zoella, Beauty Unearthly, FashionDreams & lifestyle, Sam Schuerman, Kandee Johnson. I read so many blogs, I love coming across new bloggers as well and I enjoy reading their blogs and leaving them a nice comment, As I know how I felt when I first started blogging and started getting comments. It’s such a great feeling to know someone likes your blog and enjoys reading it.
What is your HOLY GRAIL beauty product and why?
The YSL Babydoll Mascara, This stuff is amazing!! super expensive but whenever I wear it I always get so many compliments and people think its fake lashes I am wearing. It really makes your lashes look longer and thicker. If I could only have one beauty product for the rest of my life it would be that haha!!
Is there a beauty product that you’ve tried and will never try again? Why?
The Cle De Peau concealer!!! I suffer with my under eye area and after trying so many different concealers I talked myself into buying the Cle De Peau concealer. First of all its so expensive, probably the most expensive beauty Item I have ever bought. You get so little product in it and honestly most drugstore concealers are better than it. Biggest waste of money!!
If you could go back in time to 5 years ago, what beauty tip would you give yourself?
To do my eyebrows!! I don’t know why but when I was younger, I never felt the need to do my brows. I have fair hair so looking back at old photos makes me cringe, as I look like I have no brows and brows really do shape your face and change your look.
What piece of advice would you give to new inspiring beauty bloggers?
Not to think that you are going to get hundreds of followers and readers over night!! so many people start blogging thinking they will have loads of views from one post. It really takes hard work but hard work pays off in the end. Also interact with other bloggers and followers so they can get to know you a bit more.
