Confessions of a Beauty Blogger // TAG

  I am doing a tag today! It has been on my list of posts to do for ages now and I thought it was about time I did it! There are two versions of this tag but I liked these questions more! So let’s just get into the questions…
1, How many hours a week do you spend writing/ editing posts?
Well, it varies depending what type of posts I’m doing as if I do a make-up, nail or hair tutorial it will take a lot longer. And I also normally don’t do a post in one go – I would love to but there is always distractions or its taking too long and there are other things needing done. On Average probably say about 9 – 10 hours a week purely writing and editing not counting doing my make-up or taking photos – if I was to include everything I probably spend at least a day a week! Yes I am very committed!
2, Are you a spender or saver?
I go between the two – either I am an amazing saver, for example I went on a spending a ban last summer with my savings I went on a make-up course and I bought myself a Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag! But on the other hand I go through times of just constantly spending money I most likely don’t have! But I have booked a few weddings and other events as a make-up artist so I am really trying to save and build my pro kit! (I will be doing a blog sale soon, so keep an eye out for that there will be lipsy dresses, and other goodies!)
3, When is it easiest for you to blog?
I really struggle sometimes to blog on the day I put posts up because I put a lot of effort and finishing touches into my posts – first I write it all then I go though it twice then it copy it over to blogger and them I have to go through all the photo editing which I do love doing! I CAN’T believe that it took me so long to find photo editing!
4, What makes writing behind a computer comfortable for you?
Well it wasn’t until recently that I told some of the people closet to me and I don’t really like to tell people as if they don’t already know what the whole blogging community is about especially writing about beauty products can just be weird for people and it is just extremely awkward to explain to people! But I love it I would love to do youtube videos but not just yet! I just love that this is my little space that I can be myself and I don’t have to worry about being judged! –Deep!
5, What is your worst hair/ beauty habits?
Probably tying my hair up to tight and using heated appliances without heat protection, for beauty I really can’t think! I have been recently been really good - I wash my brushes I use regularly on a weekly basis or when needed and I always without a doubt take my make-up off every night, it’s a pet peeve of mine when girls don’t take they’re make-up off I shout at my sister all the time!
6, What is one quote you wish the world would live by?
Now if you follow me on pinterest or even instagram I am always putting quotes up and I couldn’t pick one so here are my three I try and live by!
"Dream until your dreams come true"
“You only live once, and if you do it properly, once is enough”
"If you can dream it, you can do it"
7, How long do you spend getting ready every day?
It varies sometimes I don’t wear make-up and just have my hair in a bun or I go the whole nine yards! So anything from ten minutes (which is washing my face, brushing my teeth and tying my hair in a bun)! Or an hour and a half which is a full face of make-up, hair curled the full thing! So depends on what day you catch me on!
8, What’s your favourite video on youtube?
Now this is a tricky one but I’m going to link two videos that really meant a lot to me. The first one is from Zoe Sugg or Zoella we all know who she is and after reading her blog post on panic attacks and anxiety I felt like she was writing about me and after going to doctors etc. I realised that the horrible feelings and my bizarre reactions to thinks were actually me having panic attacks and anxiety. I’ve never talked about this fully and I feel totally bare typing those words and maybe one day I will talk about it and hopefully help people like how Zoe did but when she did her video it made it even more real as you weren’t just reading the words inside your head it was a voice speaking to you! Another video similar but more about living life to the fullest – Meghan from Meghan Rosette and is just amazing and I still re watch these videos to this day. I will now link these videos Meghan's Video and Zoe's Video.
9. Who is a blogger that you read who deserves more subscribers than they have?
I’m not really sure because I have never actually looked at how many followers people have!
10. What's one thing your excited about in the upcoming year?
Hmm… hopefully going on holiday but not sure yet I really want to go to Canada as I’ve not been for about 5 years and really miss it. I’m just hoping that I can get away and that my make-up and blog really pick up.
11. What's your most awkward blogging moment?
Probably the same as everybody and that would be the early blogging days the amount of mistakes and embarrassing moments! But I’ve learnt how to edit post and edit photos know so I am much happy with how my blog looks now!
12. How long does it take you to prep for a post?
Again it depends what type of post but at least 30 minutes plus.
13. Are you wearing pants (jeans/skirt) right now or are you actually wearing pyjama bottoms or sweatpants?
I am of course wearing Hollister jogging bottoms, if you ask anyone that know me if I’m home I will have my jogging bottoms on!
14. What are you most proud of in your life?
Hmm… aside from passing all my exams (especially as mine where in the toughest part of my life!), going through college, getting a job at fifteen ect. Maybe learning to drive in 9 months and passing my test the first time nobody thought I would pass including myself but I did! And I had a old guy that was in charge and he didn’t pass anyone in months! But I am also really proud of my blog it may not have many followers (36 lovely ladies! I love you all!) And if you’re not following please do! GFC or Bloglovin, I put a lot into this little space and it means so much to me!
Well that’s all the questions! I hope you enjoyed! If you have any questions for me then leave them below and if you have any requests for posts then also leave them in the comments!
