To become a better blogger & for you all to get to know me a little better, I wanted to do the following questionnaire.
Also, for me to get to know you as well as contribute more to this blog, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following answers and a photo of yourself/ a picture that represents your blog, and I will love to post it for you! I always thought that when other bloggers did this, it was a simple and kind way of involving all kinds of bloggers in the community.
So here it goes--
1) Why did you start your blog?
One of my best friends has a blog. She encouraged me to start my own! Also, I began reading so many different blogs that I thought, "Why not have my own place where I can comment and view others blogs while allowing them to get to know me a little bit as well." I really wanted to be able to share my thoughts on fashion, make-up, etc. as well as politics (although that has really not happened yet :l).
2) How long have you been blogging for?
Several months now!!
3) What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I love learning and discovering new things from other bloggers; either about things I write about, or simply from reading what others post about. For example, I love to read reviews about products or find out about sales! Things I may have never known if it weren't for blogging.
4) What frustrates you most about blogging?
I definitely do not post enough!! I think I had a vision that my blog needed to be very high tech and fabulous like so many others, so I was not very motivated to post. However, I now realize that I need to do my own thing and hopefully someone out there will appreciate it :) Also, I am a college student so I am super busy! I definitely need to and will start posting more with the new year :)
5) How much time a week do you spend on your blog / reading other people’s blogs?
I go on my blog everyday!! Although I do not post very often, (or when I do, I go through spells of posting or not posting at all), I always am viewing my feed and browsing other blogs. I love it! :)
6) What advice do you have for aspiring beauty bloggers?
I honestly feel like I am not a huge person to be giving advice on this one. All I can really say is to be true to what you want your blog to be about and always remain positive :)
7) What other hobbies/interests do you have?
I enjoy reading, working out, shopping!, watching television and just enjoying the wonders that life brings.
8 ) How many bottles of nail varnish do you own?
I actually just started purchasing nail polish again! When I was younger, I had so many! However my collection dried out and ran out and I simply found myself getting my nails done and not owning many polishes. Now I own about 10 and am planning to expand my collection.
9) Do you set yourself a shopping budget, or do you purchase on an as-and-when basis?
I definitely am on a budget. I am a college student! I definitely feel that I buy items as I need them, however I also do go shopping every once in awhile and purchase items I do not necessarily need.
10) What is your favourite make-up brand, and why?
I have always loved MAC. I used to get my make-up done there for school dances and the money put down to save a spot for your appointment would go towards make-up! I simply love the brand because they have such a wide range of products and I feel like everyone could find their basic products needed there. Also, they DO NOT test on animals and that is a big requirement for me to buy from a brand! For this same reason, I have been enjoying Urban Decay and think their products are also amazing!
11) Do you ever leave the house without wearing make-up?
I will at times, however I always try to put a little on just so I look a little more presentable in public and feel more comfortable in my own skin :)
12) What is your favourite beauty product and why?
Hmmmm.. hard question. I think my current favorite beauty product is the MAC 180 Powder Brush. It is more of a tool, but after using this icky Bare Minerals own that felt so gross on my skin, this one is SO nice! I will definitely be posting about it soon :)
13) What is your favourite nail varnish of all time? (yep, only one!)
I don't particularly have a favorite nail polish. However, I do always love pink polishes and brands such as OPI and China Glaze never do me wrong :)
14) Tell us about the best holiday you’ve ever been on
I absolutely adore going anywhere sunny. Whenever Washington is rainy and I go somewhere that is warm and the sun is shining, I think it is amazing!
15) What would be your ideal day off?
My ideal day off.. I think I would sleep in just a little while. I would get Starbucks (my fav.) and go do a little shopping. Then possibly go to a movie and go to a nice restaurant where I could get yummy food haha. I definitely would make sure it was a relaxed day however because I do not like the feeling of being rushed on days off.
16) What is your favourite TV show?
I actually just did a post about this :) My current favorite TV show is Pretty Little Liars! It actually will be premiering again in two nights and I am SO excited!! If I had to choose a show that I have enjoyed for a long time, I would choose Law & Order: SVU. I could watch that show for hours! (& I do sometimes) :)
17) What music do you enjoy listening to?
I love music that is fun to sing-a-long to! Main stream pop radio is alright, however I love my country music!!
18) What is your favourite food?
Definitely pasta! I absolutely eat pasta all of the time and just love it! haha
19) Where would you most like to visit in the world? (money no object)
I would simply just love to travel! Although I prefer tropical, sunny locations; I would also like to travel to each continent and it's countries!
20) Tell us a secret…
Well if I told you a secret it wouldn't be a secret, right!? Haha. Just kidding.
A fun fact would be that I didn't have a facebook until about a year ago! I had one before that, however only for a short while! Very random, kind of boring, however I don't really know what else to say :) haha
I hope you enjoyed reading this post & remember, feel free to send me your responses at email@example.com !!
