This is one of my favourite months of the year, it makes the arrival of autumn oh so official. It kicks off the countdown to Halloween, the Santa spree commences, shop windows are sprinkled with twinkling fairy lights that make evening shopping so darn inviting and for some reason my love of crafty projects kicks off to a whole other level. Maybe it’s the cosy days/nights in? Who knows, but whatever it is I’m feeling charged and ready to embrace the party season that’s upon us. Are you as excited about October as I am? Whether you’re loving or loathing it wishing everyone a fabulous new month ahead 🙂
Talking of fabulous… I have an inspirational blog buddy to introduce y’all too this morning as the lovely Lyndsey (or Lyndz ) from Susheii is joining me on the virtual sofa this morning for a quick chatter. Lyndz is a self-confessed make-up-mama who has a craving for cosmetics, beauty & lifestyle. Being a mum to her little boy Jaxon, you can also expect a pinch of parenting on her blog so if that sounds like your thing then pop on over and say hello. I’m sure you’ll adore her blog just as much as I do ❤
Anyways, enough chatter from me – time to get to know our very first ‘Behind The Blogger’ of October!
In only 5 words describe what readers can expect from your blog:
Beauty, Lifestyle, Mom, Food, Reviews
What inspired you to start blogging?
I am a stay at home mom so I have plenty of time when my son, Jaxon, is asleep. I love make up, beauty, and sharing reviews with other people. I know when I want to buy a product, the first thing I do is head to the internet to find out what the product reviews are like. I also love makeup and anything related to it as well. I love reading blogs about beauty and lifestyle so I thought I could do it to and maybe inspire someone like many have inspired me.
Tell us about your blog name… what made you decide on it?
I used to play World of Warcraft which is actually how I met my husband. Yes, I am quite the nerd. One of my character names on there was Susheii and it has become the name I use on everything now lol.
Do you ever suffer from Blogger’s Block & if so how do you overcome it?
Yes and it is rough. Sometimes I will just not blog that day if I really cannot put words on paper. Other times, I will take a break and maybe get inspired while I clean house or play with my son.
What’s your favourite post to date?
My favourite post has to be when I was chosen to do a LBD Challenge post for Dailylook. This was a big step for me.
Describe your everyday clothes style:
I am a stay at home mom so basically anything that is comfortable. Haha. If I do not have to get dressed that day, I don’t. I am sure other SAHM’s can feel me on this one. Oversized shirts, boxers, sweat pants. Depends on the day. Haha
What are your current top 3 beauty items?
Hmmm…This is a hard one. If we are talking about skincare, it would have to be St. Ives Apricot Scrub which is a holy grail, Neutrogena Toner, and Neutrogena moisturizer. If we are talking about make up I would say, Covergirl 3-in-1 Foundation, Mac Mineralized Skinfinish in Light, and ALL of my naked pallets!
How do you like to relax & unwind after a stressful day?
I love to come home, take my make up off, change into comfy clothes and relax with my son and my doggies. Since my husband works night shift, it is usually just me and Jaxon and the pups.
Describe your ideal Saturday night:
Laying on the couch with my husband watching Supernatural or whatever show we are into that day and just binge watching it while snacking all day. Ahh the life.
What do you do to relax?
I love to curl up and read a good book or work on a blog post or do some coding. Coding is actually really stress relieving to me. I also enjoy a good face mask especially if my skin is having a freak out.
Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?
Biting my fingernails. I used to smoke but thank God I quit that. I would have to say biting my fingernails and not drinking enough water.
What’s your most cherished childhood memory?
Hmmm…Going to the zoo? I don’t really remember much of my childhood.
What was your favourite school subject?
Physics. My physics teacher died recently and it was very sad. I am going to miss her. She made me love science so much! RIP Mrs. Wyigul!
What’s your dream job?
Make up artist for sure.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I would love to see myself in Ireland. I would love to move there but hopefully we will have a house and settle down.
What top 5 things are on your bucket list?
Go to Ireland.
Go to Scotland.
Put my feet into two different seas at the same time.
Have another child.
Write a #1 Best Seller.
What’s your biggest achievement to date?
Having Jaxon. Nothing can compare to becoming a mother.
Who inspires you?
My son. He pushes me to not give up even when I am sick and tired. He motivates me to keep doing what I love and he gives me something to write about 🙂
Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?
“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day”.
What top tips would you give to someone who is thinking of starting their own blog?
Write about what you know and love. Do not try to please a group of audience and not enjoy what you are writing about . If you love it, everything else will fall into line.
