Tag | Confessions of a Blogger

(Image-Weheartit, edited in picmonkey by me)

Hello Lovelies!

Recently I've been feeling a little uninspired as to what to write about. I have a few new products but as always I want to try them out for a while to build my opinion on them before I write a blog post telling you all about them. So as always if you have anything you'd like me to write about or any requests for posts you'd like to see please let me know! I first read Kayleigh's version of this tag ages ago and thought it would be an interesting post to do. I always love reading other people's versions of these tags, I always like to find out a little bit more about the person behind the blog!

Why did you start a blog?

I started my blog over a year ago now, I had been watching beauty videos on YouTube and had just started reading blogs myself. I always had a strong interested in make up and I really liked the idea of having a place where I could just write what I wanted to, about what I wanted to and have it just to myself. I really liked the idea of having my page to look how I wanted to also, to completely personalise it to my style. When I started my blog alot of my friends lived away at college etc so I didn't really have many people to talk to, so I also joined in the hopes of making some new friends!

When did you become serious about starting a blog?

I don't think I've ever grown to be "serious" about my blog, at the start it was a new hobby I wanted to try out, and obviously since then I have started to blog on a more regular basis but I never think of it as a serious - life or death thing. It's just something I do that I really enjoy and the fact that other people take the time to read and comment on my blog makes it all the more enjoyable! I've met so many lovely people through blogging that I probably would never have met otherwise!

What was your first post?

My first post wasn't the most inspirational, amazing or even all that long of a post. It consisted of three lines. Yes I was definitely a natural at it! The shame! I genuinely had not a clue what I was doing and I was comforted in the fact that pretty much nobody would read it so I didn't really mind what I wrote, I just wanted to get started really! You can read my first ever post by clicking here (don't judge!)

What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?

At the moment I'm finding it difficult to come up with original and different posts, I do realise that nobody wants to read 20 reviews all raving about the latest products but I am one for the hype! I love to try out the latest thing on the market to see if it really is all that great (99% of the time I love it) But I don't want people to by-pass my blog just because they've already seen and read loads about that product before. So I think finding products and topics that not many people have discussed before abit of a challange.

Where do you see your blog in one year?

I'd love to see myself still blogging in a years time, having discovered lots of new and exciting products and gained lots more friends!

What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging?

I'm sure my answer will be similar to alot of peoples when I say that I find the most rewarding part about blogging is the people you meet. I have spoke to so many unbelievably nice people over the past year that I wouldn't have had the pleasure of meeting if I didn't start blogging. The beauty community is definitely one of nicest and most welcoming group of people you could meet!

What is the most discouraging thing that happens to you?

Honestly I think I have been really lucky so far to have had a really positive experience from blogging! Everyone has been so nice and always leaves lovely comments etc. It is abit discouraging to see people arguing over petty things in comments or on twitter but thankfully I have not been involved in anything like that so I can't really comment on it.

What's your lasting inspiration or motivation?

Definitely my biggest inspiration is watching YouTube videos and reading other girls blogs. I love seeing the newest releases on the market and hearing peoples opinions about them. Everyone I read is so amazingly talented and different it really helps to keep ideas flowing and they are always willing to help if you have questions or problems etc!

So there you have it, my version of the Confessions of a Beauty Blogger tag. I tag everyone that reads this to do it, I hope you enjoyed my version!


  1. Love your answers lovely.. but don't worry about writing the same as other people. Your photo's are always gorgeous, and your reviews always detailed and honest so people will always want to read your posts even if it's a super hyped product :) xx

  2. Lovely tag :)

  3. Great answers lovely and thanks so much for mentioning me! I clicked on for a read and didn't expect to see my name linked so that was a lovely suprise :) I totally agree about the thinking of new original posts thing, I think thats always going to be hard as a beauty blogger. We all love the same things after all! I'd say as long as you write about what you love and express your lovely personality, people will always want to read no matter what :) lots of love! xxxxxxx.

  4. Love this post. It's so nice to find out a bit more about the person behind the blog :)
