After being tagged by some lovely ladies Rachel, Amy & Fiona (click their names to head to their gorgeous blogs) I thought it was about time to do my post for the Liebster Award! Thank you so much to all 3 of you for tagging me!
This is all about getting to know the blogger behind the blog and answering a few questions which have been set by whoever nominated you as well as discovering new blogs too. So as I’ve been tagged 3 times I’m going to pick out some questions from each and combine them together for just one post! Then I’ll be doing some nominating and setting some questions too!
1.Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I really got into makeup and every time I wanted to buy something new I always scrolled through and read so many reviews first and looked through so many swatches that I thought you know what? I could be writing my own thoughts on things for people to read too and it would be so nice to connect with people that love the same things as me! So that was it, I just downloaded the WordPress app and got started.
2. What advice would you give to new bloggers?
Just focus on doing what you love, don’t focus on the numbers and enjoy blogging. Connecting with other bloggers is so important and so much fun. Don’t forget to promote your blog on social media for people to find you and your blog! You also don’t need a fancy camera to get some pretty good photos.
3. If you could live in any fictional world which one would you choose and why?
This is the easiest question ever, the wizarding world of course! If you didn’t know already I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan so yeah, take me to Hogwarts with my broom and wand and i’ll be on my way!
4. What’s your favourite fashion brand?
It has to be Topshop, I live for their pretty shirts and black jeans if nothing else. I’m always scrolling their website looking for new pieces for my wardrobe. Their sizes are actually consistent too and I know i’m paying for good quality clothing.
5. What is your favourite form of social media?
Well it’s been Instagram for a long time due to the fact I just love photography and looking at other peoples pretty photos as well as taking and posting my own. But just lately with Instagram being super annoying and no one being able to see what they want to see, I’ve been leaning more towards Twitter. Twitter is so fun to chat with other bloggers and tweeting random stuff that comes in to your head for people to laugh at.
6. What is your favourite time of the year?
This is actually a really tough one for me. I love the long summer nights and coming home and it still being light outside and obviously the warm weather (when we actually get some in the UK), but I also love the colder months too, mine, and my boyfriends birthdays and anniversary are all a few days apart in November and then I love Christmas too. So I don’t think I can actually pick!
7. What is your favourite movie of all time?
The Harry Potter films for sure, and I can’t just pick one either!
8. What’s your favourite book and why?
I’m not sure I really have a favourite book. But one I always remember really enjoying was The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. I read it before watching the film and the book is SO much better.
9. What is the one item you could not live without?
Unfortunately I’m gunna be that guy and say my phone. But with me and my boyfriend being long distance, It’s the only way we can speak when we’re not together. I also just don’t like the idea of not being able to contact anybody if I need them. Along with the fact I love it for all the other things like social media and blogging on the go.
10. What is your favourite beauty item?
Hmm now that’s a tough one. I actually don’t think I can decide. I wouldn’t want to go without concealer or a brow pencil. But then I am obsessed with pretty eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks. I just can’t!
11. Would you ever stop blogging?
I would like to think the answer to this question would be no, I don’t ever want to stop blogging. But at the same time I have no idea where life will take me and if one day I won’t have time or something. But hopefully I will always have time for my little corner on the internet!
