Happy Friday everyone!
I’ve been nominated for a couple of awards recently, and because of being so busy for various reasons I just haven’t got around to answering the questions set by the lovely bloggers who nominated me. These nominations are such a great way to firstly discover new bloggers, but also to connect with the great people that shape the blogging community. Rather than nominate 20 people at the end of this, I’ve decided to combine the two and choose ten bloggers to answer my questions. So I hope you enjoy!
A massive thank you to RolasJournal for nominating me for this award!
The questions and my answers:
1.Why did you start blogging?
Because I’m passionate about beauty, whether that be products/tips and tricks. And I wanted a creative outlet to connect with other people. I also love the idea of owning my own space to talk all things beauty – it’s a great excuse to do shopping too!
2.How long have you been blogging for?
I started my blog about a year ago, although I’ve been properly maintaining it for around 3 months
3.Why did you choose this name for your blog?
I was original and stuck with my name. Nothing stood out so much that I wanted to use it, and I like my name so thought why not! Hopefully not many others will have it…
4.What are the top three things you want to do in 2016?
Progress in my career, attend more beauty-specific events, explore more of London
5.Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully developing my own skincare range
6.Are you a sweet/sour person?
7.If you won the lottery what would be the first thing you’d do?
I’m currently trying to find a flat to live in, in London. So I would treat myself and my friends to a gorgeous flat with exposed brick (always wanted that)
8.Are you a morning person?
100% my friends used to make fun of me for it, but now it’s great. I can get so much done in a day! Although come 8pm and I’m ready for bed!
9.Describe yourself in one word.
10.Tell us something about yourself, absolutely anything….
I would rather walk 100 flights of stairs than take a lift
Beauty Blogger Tag
Thanks to H&L Aurora for tagging me in this award!
The questions and my answers:
1.What is your beauty routine?
My routine is fairly simple in the morning – I cleanse and moisturise. Having problem skin has meant I really limit what I use. Every few days I’ll exfoliate and I use a face mask once a week. I’ve started using an eye cream everyday.
2.How often do you exercise?
Not enough! I’ve just started getting back into exercise where my plan is do something 2-3 times a week. I’ll be doing a mixture of spin, yoga and dance classes.
3.Do you organise your makeup and nail varnish?
As much as I can, although I always like to have everything out where I can see it. I’d say it’s organised chaos!
4.Can you go without wearing makeup?
Yes and the older I get the more I do it. It’s lovely and freeing and really is amazing for your skin!
5.How long does it take you to put on your makeup?
Around 10 minutes in the morning before work – I love sleep too much to sacrifice it! On a night out though I can spend up to half an hour perfecting my look.
6.How often do you wash your make up brushes?
Once a month which I know is definitely not enough. I need to get into a better habit but it just always slips my mind! I clean my eyeliner and concealer brush every morning with a baby wipe however, so that must be something….
7.What is your favourite store to buy clothes at?
8.How do you keep soft skin?
Moisturising lots goes without saying. But drinking lots of water is my key to soft skin!
9.What motivates you?
10.What is your ‘smell good’ routine?
My favourite perfume to use is Coco Madmoseille by Chanel. Chanel never smells bad!
