Behind The Blog… featuring Corinne from Organic By Nerve

Organic By Nerve

Hey Beauty Buddies…

This last few weeks I’ve done nothing but bleat on about how utterly excited I am that autumn is well truly on it’s way, yet I spent most of yesterday grumbling about how chilly the nights are getting… can’t win eh? Ahh well, I guess that can only mean one thing: a cosy pj & fluffy slipper sock spree 😉  Oh yes ladies, every cloud has it’s silver linings! *rummages for debit card* However now that the darker nights are setting in fast I’m finding myself combating the chills by dusting off my seasonal candles and curling up in front of the fire. Perfection. Unfortunately, the dark mornings aren’t quite having the same romantic appeal for me gals *sob* Any tips on beating the early morning blues would be greatly appreciated!

However today I have the enormous pleasure of introducing y’all to someone who’s guaranteed to brighten up this chilly September morning… it’s the gorgeous Corinne from Organic By Nerve. I have to admit I’m a huuuge fan of her sassy little corner of the interweb; simply because it’s so bright, cheery & filled with an array of fabulous beauty goodies… not to mention how down to earth, honest & incredibly relate-able she is! If you’re on the look out for a super enthusiastic new hangout packed full of great posts to feast your eyes upon, then look no further as Organic By Nerve really does have it all…

Ps: Don’t forget to check out her inspirational quote below… something I’m sure we’d all very much agree on ❤

Corinne

In only 5 words describe what readers can expect from your blog:

Plenty of ramblings from Corinne.
.

What inspired you to start blogging?

Seeing what a supportive and exciting community it was. I was also excited to have an excuse to shop more and try new products.

.

Tell us about your blog name… what made you decide on it?

My blog name was one of the things holding me back from getting started in the blogging world, because I didn’t know whether should I just have my name or something of importance to me. In the end I put my name, Corinne Bygrave, into an anagram creator, and found Organic By Nerve, it seemed fitting for the blog world so I bit the bullet and created my blog!

.

Do you ever suffer from Blogger’s Block & if so how do you overcome it?

I DO! In the early months of my blog, I had posted once over 2 months, I was so excited to get started that I forgot to plan ideas, so I had 0 inspiration to write. I’ve recently implemented a posting schedule on my blog, so I’ve learnt to stockpile posts, instead of feeling stuck on a posting day, I’ll write a couple of posts on a non-posting day, when I’m struck with inspiration.

.

What’s your favourite post to date?

I am entirely torn between ‘Don’t Censor The F-Word’ https://goo.gl/uSJ2Mq and ‘The Truth Behind Being A Journalism Student’ https://goo.gl/YyJqMa

How do you like to relax & unwind after a stressful day?

A bath, (preferably with Lush’s Creamy Candy) immediately changing into PJ’s and fluffy socks and watching any Derren Brown show.

.

Describe your ideal Saturday night:

Takeaway and movie night with my pals.

.

What do you do to relax?

Do my nails, moisturise, just generally take some time just for me.

.

Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?

I think sometimes I put too much pressure on myself to do everything, so that it feels overwhelming and I just put it all off.

.

What’s your most cherished childhood memory?

My 8th birthday, I just had a card on my pillow saying it was a ticket to my present. Then myself and my family went on a long drive and arrived at a small farm where there was a litter of kittens and my parents had picked out a gorgeous little girl for me!

.

.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

I try to think of every day as a little achievement, as it’s another step towards becoming who you’re meant to be. (Otherwise I can’t really think of anything!)

.

Who inspires you?

Beyonce, naturally. But also everyone I’m surrounded by, fellow bloggers, my friends and family. And the future, I want to be someone that I’d be proud of.

.

Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?

I have lots of quotes that are usually floating around my mind, but “We’re all fighting hard battles, so you’ve gotta be kind.” Inspires me to remember to be kind and patient with other people.

.

What top tips would you give to someone who is thinking of starting their own blog?

Stop putting it off, whether it’s because you don’t feel ready, you’re worried no one will read it, or you don’t know what to write about, just start. Just sign up and write a ‘Hello!’ post. You can delete anything you don’t like later in time. But don’t put it off.

Also, don’t let your blog feel like a chore. Even if you have a strict posting schedule, if you reach a day where you’re supposed to post, but don’t have anything ready, and you don’t feel inspired, just take a day off.

  1. I wish I could help with the early morning blues but I’m not too helpful 😦 I’m usually NOT happy to wake up early. I suggest getting what you can done the night before (like packing your lunch and setting out clothes for the morning) so you can sleep in more 😉

    • I’m afraid I already do that Kaily – I set my clothes out, make-up, perfume… and even my bag is sitting ready to lift – I just find myself getting sleepier these dark mornings! If only there was a switch in the sky 😀 xxx

      • Aweeeeeeeeeeee 😦 Okay this is the only other thing I can think of… set your alarm to go off several different times and use a really annoying sound. Also put it far away from you. I shower in the morning which really helps to wake me up! Consider having coffee first thing too!!??

      • I must say I do have an alarm set to go off every ten mins but it’s right beside my bed… maybe that’s the problem right there – ooooh but that sounds torturous to get up and turn it off lol I’d have to start perfecting my aim at throwing things 😉 haha A coffee could work wonders… I usually have one mid day to perk me up but maybe I should move it to early morning! Great tips misses, you should be blogging these ya know!!!! 😀 xxxx
