I’ve been debating the post I should add to my blog, and luckily I’ve had the decision made for me! The gorgeous Paige of ‘Little P Blog’ has nominated me for the Liebster Award which is so lovely of her, and you should definitely go and check out her blog! Now at first glance I wasn’t quite sure what it was about, but after reading her post I’ve discovered it’s a brilliant way of discovering new blogs to follow, while telling everyone a little more about me in the process!
Paige has given me some questions to answer, so here they are!
how long have you been blogging for?
I have only been blogging for two months, so not long at all! Even so, I’ve really enjoyed writing and editing the posts I’ve put up so far so long may it continue!!
have you considered uploading to YouTube?
I can’t say I have, maybe something to think about in the future! Never say never!
what do you like to blog about most?
Not sure if anyone’s noticed, but I love posting about beauty! Anything from makeup to skincare to bath bombs, you name it, I’ll blog about it! I think it’s mainly because that’s my industry, being a makeup artist, so I can’t help but be fascinated by it and want to share it with others!
where is your favourite place that you have traveled to?
Now that’s a hard question! I’ve been incredibly lucky with some of the locations I’ve been able to visit so it’s very hard to pick one, but keeping with the theme of this blog I’m going to have to say Milan. Clearly, the shopping capital of the world so I was going to adore it anyway, however this trip allowed me to find new love for products and brands I’d never heard of thanks to their MASSIVE Sephora! We’re not lucky enough to have a Sephora in the UK so shopping there was an absolute dream! Not only that, but the architecture was absolutely incredible. The ‘Duomo Di Milano’ was one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever seen, it is absolutely massive and so detailed, an amazing place to be able to visit! I’ve attached some pictures below (maybe I’ll do a separate blog post about it??)
what made you start to want blogging?
I started my blog because I had so many products that I absolutely love and wanted to tell others about them! I thought it’d be a good way to get that out there, whilst also being a good way to spend some of my free time!
what is the most frustrating thing about blogging?
I think one of the hardest things about blogging is knowing what to blog about! I have so many ideas for posts but it’s difficult knowing which ones will reach the audience I have in mind for this blog, so that can be quite frustrating sometimes!
favourite series to watch at the moment?
Definitely Stranger Things! I’ve just started to re-watch season one as I want to have a refresher so I can go into season two in the know! I’ve heard really good things about season two so I’m really looking forward to watching it!
what is your favourite Christmas tradition?
Bar far my favourite tradition is putting the angel decoration on the top of the Christmas tree. My siblings and I do it together every year and it’s the sweetest thing!
are you open about your blog? do you tell people you blog?
I don’t see the point of keeping the fact you blog from people, I put a lot of effort into my posts so I’d like as many people to see them as possible!
twitter or instagram?
Definitely instagram! I post nearly every day and it’s a great way to advertise myself and my business! I am on twitter as well but I prefer the layout of instagram for sure!
Now I’d like to nominate a few others for this award! They are:
