BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD


Hey girls, 
I think I have received this award in the past before but I'm petty sure that was a while ago and I was nominated again so I really want to do it. I think the questions that are attached to this award are really great and allow me to share my opinions on blogging and the online beauty community. Keep reading if your interested in my responses.
 
Rules:
Thank the person that nominated you and link to their blog:
Thank you so much Julia for nominating me! I love watching her YouTube videos and checking out her Instagram photos so of course I love her blog as well! I really appreciate her nominating me for this award!
 
Tell us how the idea of making a blog popped up and what makes you continue it?
Most people make a blog to go alongside their YouTube but I actually started off blogging long before I made my YouTube channel. I remember being so inspired by my love for makeup products that I wanted an outlet to be able to express my opinions of them through reviews and other such blogging things. I blogged for a good year or two before I even made a video which makes me want to continue it as this is where I started. The other motivation to continue blogging is all of the love and support which I receive from you all! I love getting messages saying that my review was helpful, it makes me feel like I have purpose to see people appreciate my blog.
Describe a usual day in your life.
I am currently on my last year of school which I am so excited about so five out of seven days are school days. On a school day I check my emails in the morning, spend pretty much all day at school then once I arrive home I usually email people back, reply to comments, catch up on YouTube videos and blog posts, clean and feed my guinea pigs and then just watch some television and chill out. On the weekends I usually sleep in then once I'm up I will get ready and film a video, do something with my friends, family or boyfriend then come home to edit and upload my videos as well as work on my blogs. Since I not only have a beauty blog and beauty channel but also a cooking blog and cooking channel, things can get kind of hectic trying to keep everything up to date! My life really isn't that exciting, it's just filled with me doing things that I need to get done.  

The best collaboration with a blogger.
I have had wonderful collaborations with all of my monthly beauty bloggers! I love finding out more about beauty blog writers and I find that my Monthly Beauty Blogger segment allows me to do that very well. 
The worst collaboration with a blogger. 
I have never experienced a negative collaboration with any of my Monthly Beauty Bloggers and I doubt I ever will! The online beauty community is a really positive place filled with lovely people so I can't see myself ever having a bad experience on here. 
Describe what having a blog means to you.
Having a blog to me means being able to share my beauty tips and tricks with anyone from all around the world! I love hearing where everyone comes from and I think it's great that this is a very open topic that people internationally can relate to! As well as this, it also means lack of sleep unfortunately. I often find myself staying up late to finish a blog post or edit a video but it's all worth it seeing the end result and how much everyone appreciates it.
 
Nominate five other bloggers:
I nominate Anna, Vivian, Dao, Sophie and Melissa! All of your girls definitely deserve this award and I hope you enjoy answering the questions! I would love for you to tell me when it's up on your blog so I can check it out!
