Must Read Posts For New Beauty Bloggers

One of the many reasons I adore blogging is constantly getting to meet new blog buddies – both experienced bloggers and completely new to the blogging community. However when you’re starting out, blogging can be a really daunting process – particularly hitting that ‘publish’ button for the first time. In fact if you’re anything like me it can rev up the anxiety levels and leave you in a state of ‘what the heck have I just done?’ and ‘Oh my gosh I hope nobody I KNOW reads this’ – don’t worry we’ve all been there and done it, am I right experienced bloggers?

So seeing as so many lovely new bloggers have taken the time to stop by Confetti & Curves to say hello I thought I’d share a few of my own ‘words of wisdom’ when it comes to blogging. After all it’s something that has personally helped me cope with anxiety and some really rough days – put your all into blogging and you’ll get so much in return as it really is a fantastic family to be a part off.

Keeping Up With Karen

Howdy Chums…

Have y’all had a fab weekend so far? Mine has been lovely, really really lovely. Not gonna lie this past few weeks have been a slight test of character but having spent a wonderful night in with great friends I’m smiling from a night of laughs and great banter. Best of all, I won’t end up with a banging headache considering I’ve spent the night sipping on organic elder-flower spritz to was down our yummy takeaway. It’s nights like this I thoroughly enjoy, no dressing up, no tottering around the town in aching heels and no waiting in the cold for taxi’s. Just slipper socks and great company! Maybe I’m showing my age but I adore nights in waaaayyy more than nights out – a sign I’m getting complacent or comfy? Who cares… as long as I’m having fun, right? 😀

10 Things I’ve Learned About Beauty Blogging…

10 Things I've Learned About Beauty Blogging

There’s an old Chinese proverb which states ‘The journey of a thousand mile starts with a single step’. Isn’t it beautiful? These words have always rung true throughout the many journeys I’ve been on, some of them great and others not so much. But after stumbling across this little proverb over the weekend again it’s made me reflect back on a few journeys I’ve been through, am still going through & those yet to come. One of the most inspiring journey’s I’ve been on is blogging. Not only has it helped me manage my anxiety immensely, but the fun I’ve had and the friendships forged have been totally unforgettable. So with that in mind today’s post is simply a light hearted reflection on a few of the things I’ve learned since taking my first ‘virtual’ footstep with Confetti & Curves almost 3 years ago…

.

Hoarding becomes normality…

No, really it will. Say goodbye to your trusty little zip-up makeup bag and hello to a room dominated by skyscrapers of muji drawer sets and decorative Ikea plant pots crammed with makeup brushes. Of course that’s ONLY the cosmetics… your bathroom shelves, bedside cabinets, kitchen table and handbag will become a breeding ground for skincare, moisturisers, lip balms…

pink heart

There’s no such thing as free time…

If you’re a busy little blogging bee who hits the ‘publish’ button multiple times per week then the likely hood is that your free time is spent scrawling down post ideas, making mental notes of points to mention, scouring beauty magazines, responding to PR companies, replying to comments, attempting to keep up with social media, recharging your camera batteries, cursing the lack of natural daylight, typing into the early hours of the morning – oh, and juggling your job/life/kids/family commitments into the mix too 😉

pink heart

“But it’s for the Blog”…

Payday should be everyday when you’re a beauty blogger with a wish list as long as a fresh loo roll, but it aint, so funds needs to be juggled with care and the mightiest of resistance to splurge. However there’s always that delicious moment when birthday & Christmas rolls round and you’re handed cards filled with gift vouchers for your favourite beauty havens *happy sigh* In the mean time you’ll keep convincing yourself that every item you pop in your basket is all in the name of beauty blogging. What a selfless trooper you are! 😀

pink heart

Nothing gets used until your camera says so…

And I mean absolutely nothing. The thought of applying a fresh tube of lippie before it’s been photographed almost makes the eyeballs in your head roll back in horror. And heaven forbid an eye shadow pan gets disturbed or a new makeup tool gets used BEFORE it’s had a photo shoot.

pink heart

There’s no such thing as “Just popping in”…

Are you serious? When was the last time you actually ‘just popped in’ to any makeup store? When you’re a beauty blogger avoiding the makeup aisles is virtually impossible. We have miniature magnets entwined into our DNA that simply doesn’t permit us to casually dander past a wall of beauty goodies but instead be drawn helplessly towards them. We’re goin’ in and we ain’t coming back out until our forearms resemble a patchwork quilt of many many many colours.

pink heart

EVERTHING gets critiqued…

Even things your friends and family treat themselves too , you’ll more than likely find yourself saying “Ooh, very nice, but you really should try…” Oh yes, you become obsessed, not only with your own stash but also with the stash of others too. Not to mention the almighty moment of “YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS… No, really you HAVE to, I insist, in fact let’s go RIGHT NOW and buy it for you. Yes NOW!” You become delirious when you find a mascara that does what it promises or a drugstore lipstick that puts your favourite Mac to shame.

pink heart

The guilt, oh the guilt…

Oddly enough I had this very conversation with a blog buddy quite recently, when we were discussing the waves of quilt from the very thought of not posting. It’s remarkably amazing just how much effort goes into maintaining a blog, including sticking to a routine. Sadly many of us often get swamped into feeling pressured to fulfilling that day in day out. Remember, we’re only human, we need our blog breaks, holidays and time away to recharge our batteries. Blogging should be fun, breaking the guilt is tough but it has to be done to realise that there’s a life to live away from the laptop too.

pink heart

You’ll have an all year round need for fairy lights…

Your new slogan will be ‘fairylights aren’t just for Christmas..’ as you’ll soon discover that there’s an all round yearly requirement for obtaining that perfect background bokeh effect to woo the eyeballs of your readers with. Yes, your room will partially resemble Santa’s grotto 356 days of the year… 366 if it’s a leap year. Just saying.

pink heart

Lighting becomes your enemy …

Summer time is a blessing but winter is just a plain old pain in the virtual arse cheeks. With gloomy grey skies and sunlight disappearing faster than your patience cares to admit, you’ll possibly find yourself timing your photo shoots to day-light perfection as you huddle eagerly beside your biggest window… until you spend your entire savings on ring lamps powerful enough to flood light Wembley Stadium.

pink heart

You’ll become besties with people you’ve never met…

This is by far the best bit, the community spirit. When I started beauty blogging my misconceptions were that it would be a ferociously bitchy place full of ‘Makeup Experts’ just waiting to correct your every damn opinion. How wrong I was. In fact, it’s the total opposite. I’ve met people that will remain friends for the rest of my life, people who have built my confidence, encouraged me, supported me and even spent the time selflessly promoting my little corner of the interweb.  These are the people who lift you up on the crappiest of days, they’re the ones that make you feel  a very special part of one big cheery internet family. Thank you ❤

Behind The Blog featuring Simply Sorcha…

Simply Sorcha

If there is anything certain in the universe, it’s that Ireland is undoubtedly swarming with glowing pink bodies today (appearing semi-radioactive) from what can only be described as the mini heatwave which descended upon our bank holiday Monday. What a scorcher it was as back gardens & beaches were crammed with budding barbequers relishing in the sun rays, enjoying their burnt hot dogs & cider. I on the other hand was inching around the shade – wilting like an extra from Bram Stokers. Needless to say an Ikea parasol is the most life saving investment I’ve ever purchased, and if you’re pale skinned you’ll more than understand 😉 On a slightly different note, my new summer sandals arrived and they are THEE comfiest things I have EVER worn. Seriously, they really are! *happy sigh & happy feet* 😀

Ooh talking of happy, I’ve yet another cheery blog buddy to introduce y’all to today as the gorgeous Sorcha from Simply Sorcha joins us on the virtual sofa for a quick chatter about life behind the scenes of her ‘oh-so-chic’ beauty & lifestyle blog. With a love of cosmetics, a sprinkle of wanderlust, fun features and a talented flair for writing, Sorcha’s blog is certainly not one to miss out on so if you haven’t already check it out then get over pronto & check in 🙂

Sorcha

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

Lifestyle, beauty, honesty and fun!

.

What inspired you to start blogging?

As clichéd as it sounds, it was my love of writing. I used to write all the time, I previously had a travel blog and also wrote short stories. But lately I’ve just been writing for work, and not for myself, so in January of this year, I made the leap and began blogging again.

.

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

Simply Sorcha, is ‘simply’ about me. My life, my loves, my interests, my experiences, my travels, and anything else happening in my life that I think people would like to read about. I deliberated for weeks trying to come up with a name that covered everything I wanted to write about, in the end it just made sense to name it after myself!

.

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

Absolutely. It happens quite regularly and usually if I’m a bit stressed out. I second guess myself a lot and wonder if I’m just boring people, or whether my posts are even interesting. I’m sure most bloggers experience that every so often. But when I’m having days like that, I try just think about what I like to read in blog posts and go from there.

.

What’s your favourite post to date? 

Ah… That has to be my wedding photography post, Wedding, Photos, Love. https://simplysorcha.com/2016/03/03/wedding-photos-love/

I got married last December so I shared this post when we received our photos from our photographer. It is my most-read post to date with over 2000 views, yay!

.

Describe your everyday clothes style:

Hmmm, casual chic maybe? My staple daily outfit usually consists of a jacket of some sort, a top or blouse, skinny jeans and ankle boots. But I do love glamming it up for a night out!

.

What are your current top 3 beauty items?

This changes all the time, but currently my favs are:

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Retoucher Concealer Pen

MAC Lady Danger Lipstick

.

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

By soaking in a long, hot bath with a great book and a glass of red.

.

Describe your ideal Saturday night:

Going for dinner with my hubby and/or friends, chatting and drinking the night away.

.

What do you do to relax?

I’m really into meditation and mindfulness so I try to switch off and meditate as much as I can. I also love nothing more than putting on my PJs and slippers, and curling up on the couch with one of my favourite movies.

 .

Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?

I’m a complete stress head, even though I try very hard not to be!

.

What’s your most cherished childhood memory?

Trips away with my family in summer – it’s the simple things.

.

What was your favourite school subject?

English! Hence why I love writing so much I think…

.

What’s your dream job?

To be a published, successful author.

.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I would love to be a full time, professional blogger, and also have a family.

.

What top 5 things are on your bucket list?

Oh there are just so many things on my bucket list but my top five would have to be:

Travel Australia

Buy a Chanel Handbag

Visit The White House

Write a book

Buy a house

.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

N/A (Only because I can’t think of what to say here!)

.

Who inspires you?

My parents. They have an incredible work ethic and are the most generous people I know.

.

Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?

I’m totally obsessed with quotes, there’s nothing else like one for a bit of inspiration. But I think my favourite would have to be:

‘For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be what you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again’. – F. Scott Fitzgerald

.

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

Given that I’m new to the blogging world I still have a lot to learn myself, but social media has really helped grow my readership and followers. So I definitely recommend setting up as many social media accounts as possible and really engaging with your followers.

Sweet Endings, Embracing Change & New Beginnings…

New Beginnings

Like I mentioned in yesterdays intro, I’m a bit of a weirdo when it comes to change. Even if it doesn’t necessarily affect me it takes a long time for me to adjust. It’s bizarre, right? Of course that can be limiting as I quite often avoid embracing new things simply because I wallow comfortably in routine; anything different to that feels like a wild threat determined to disrupt my mental karma. Naturally, copious tea drinking commences… aren’t I glad it’s nothing stronger?! *rolls eyes* Maybe it’s down to my erratic anxiety levels or maybe it’s just the fact that I get comfy in the same old spot for too long. Whatever the reason, I feel it’s time to move on and instigate a few little changes of my own.

At this point you’re probably thinking ‘what the fudge is she whittling on about?!’. Okay, here goes a bit of a back track story… In October 2014 I launched Confetti & Curves. At the time I’d literally gone through the mill with mental health issues – if only you guys knew the struggle, it was real & it was frightening. But without dwelling on the gloom and doom, blogging picked me up and took me out of the darkest depths of what I was battling. It helped me cope immensely. I spent night after night chatting to new blogging chums… most of whom have become friends I’m yet to meet. It’s been lovely, thoroughly lovely in fact, and I’d highly suggest blogging to anyone battling their own inner demons as it can be such a healthy & creative distraction.

pink heart

In November 2014 I wanted to give something back to the blogging community, albeit it nothing major but it was my own way of positively drawing attention to the bloggers who were unknowingly helping me through such a tough time in my own life, hence Behind The Blog was born.

Over the past 18 months (Eeeek! I can’t believe it’s been THAT long!!) literally hundreds of bloggers have featured twice a week, joining me on my so called ‘virtual sofa’ to chatter about their own little corner of the internet. Learning about others in the blogging community has proven that regardless of skin colour, religion or location we can all be surprisingly similar in many ways… or totally different but still enjoying the company of each other.

And-suddenly-you-just-know1

I can’t begin to tell y’all just how much I’ve enjoyed hosting this series. It’s been a treat getting to know so many of you a little bit better alongside the added bonus of some great online friendships blossoming through it. But it’s time to move on. It’s not that I’m fed up or tired of introducing all you lovely lot, it’s just reached a point where I’d like to explore a few new opportunities as well as take the time to read more blogs and put as much as I can into becoming self-employed again. Woo hoo! It’s exciting, right? Of course I’m by no means saying that I’m giving up blogging – absolutely not!!! I’ll still be regularly typing away but merely phasing out the commitment of Behind The Blog every Tuesday & Thursday… which in turn will help me free up some time. In replacement, maybe I’ll re-blog a few of my older posts that new readers might find helpful or simply post a little inspirational feature. I’ve pencilled in a few new series for later in the year that I’ve been itching to work on but simply haven’t gotten the time to tackle – again easing off the Behind The Blog commitment for a while will help me work on creating those exciting projects with some really interesting people! Projects I know you guys will LOVE.

I know some of you are in the process of submitting your Behind The Blog interviews already, and that’s fine, I’m still scheduling as normal. I also know some of you are keen to jump on board, so with that in mind this is my last invitation (for the foreseeable wee while) that I’ll be putting out for any requests. So please get in contact pronto if it’s something you’re also interested in participating in.

pink heart

So if you’re in the process of returning your interview or if you’re eager to get involved (before I begin to wind things down a little) then get in touch via my contact page. If you’re new and would like to read more about it then you can *Click Here* to check out all the information a blogger could need 😉

As for those who have already taken part THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! You guys have been an inspiration, a daily source of encouragement, great online friends and the best medicine for days when even mumbling a few words has been a difficult process. You’re all super-stars in your own right and I cannot thank you enough for allowing the rest of us into your world ❤

Cheerio chums…

Behind The Blog featuring Coast To Coast With Alexis…

Coast To Coast With Alexis

Howdy Beauty Buddies…

I’m terrible with endings. Saying goodbye always feels intensely yucky to me, whether it be dropping Emma off at school (I know, I know I’m a soppy over-protective mum…though some days I sigh with relief at a few hours of peace) or saying goodbye to a close friend who I’ll probably not see for years to come. Either way I always get tinges of sadness.

Yesterday in work I said a final cheerio to a lovely work colleague who left the department so abruptly. It was a tough exit for her & being a temporary worker there nothing anyone could do about it. It stayed with me right through to last night, wondering if she was okay – particularly seeing her so teary-eyed yesterday. I’m sure as the days pass she’ll be fine. It’s just a shock to us all as a great wee team, and on a selfish level I never cope well with change… even if it doesn’t directly affect me, it just never sits well in my bones. I’ve drifted off to sleep for a few hours tonight, probably with the thoughts of everything in my mind. But I’m awake now, drinking tea and writing to you guys – who always manage to cheer me up 🙂 That’s the awesome things about blogging, the community spirit. A random comment really helps lift a dull mood & lighten the stresses of a dismal day. So thank you guys – oblivious as you’s all may be your constant support & friendship goes without saying ❤

Talking of blogging community, I have a rather fabulous gal to introduce y’all too today as the lovely Alexis from Coast to Coast with Alexis joins us for a chat about behind the scenes of her beauty & lifestyle blog. What I love about Alexis’ posts is that it quite often comes across that she’s writing straight from the heart. In fact it feels like you’re lost in an email from a good friend rather than a blogger you’ve never met. She’s always so engaging, cheery and totally relate-able. Sounds like your kinda blog buddy? Then why not pop on over and check her out, right after we’ve taken a peek Behind The Blog

Alexis

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

Wit, sarcasm, beauty, rants, lifestyle

.

What inspired you to start blogging?

Moving from coast to coast constantly, I’m always met with different things from each coast (friends, work, etc). So I thought a blog would be a good way to combine the west coast with the east.

.

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

Coast to Coast with Alexis is definitely the best indicator of why I started blogging so it was just cute and direct.

.

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

All the time. Sometimes I look at what my favourite YouTubers are talking about, or sometimes I’ll decide it’s a good reason to buy some make up, or just looking to what I’m studying in class and seeing if any of those would make a good blog post!

.

What’s your favourite post to date? 

Probably “An Open Letter to my Boyfriend” because that was when I really let my readers inside of my life.

https://coasttocoastwithalexis.wordpress.com/2016/01/14/an-open-letter-to-my-boyfriend/

.

Describe your everyday clothes style:

If I can get away with wearing jeans and T-shirt, it’s a good day.

.

What are your current top 3 beauty items?

Anastasia Brow Wiz in Auburn, Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, and Maybelline Matte Lipstick in 650 – Nude Embrace

.

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

Definitely Netflix and Coffee, they’re my two favourite things

.

Describe your ideal Saturday night:

Mexican Food (take out or dine in, doesn’t matter) and Netflix in bed

.

What do you do to relax?

Literally, apply make up. Putting on make up is just such a good de-stresser for me, personally.

.

Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?

Hitting that snooze button in the morning way too often

.

What’s your most cherished childhood memory?

I don’t think I have one

.

What was your favourite school subject?

Math was definitely my favourite subject, but I definitely hated taking Stats in college

.

What’s your dream job?

I’m in between becoming a Marriage Family Therapist and a School Psychologist

.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully graduating my Master’s program!

.

What top 5 things are on your bucket list?

Going to Dublin, owning a home, adopting a child …that’s it so far, I don’t really have an interesting one

.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

Probably getting into BU, maybe that’s sad but so many amazing accomplishments have come out of coming to Boston University.

.

Who inspires you?

Rory Gilmore, everyday of my life

.

Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?

“Control what you can, Confront what you can’t,” –The Maine

.

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

Don’t let your stats control you. Of course post things readers want to see, but if you love a post you wrote and it doesn’t get a lot of traffic, it doesn’t make it a bad post. Remember why you started!

Behind The Blog featuring Stefhanie from Honey In A Gold Pot…

Honey In A Gold Pot

Howdy Beauty Buddies.

I trust you’re all having a fabulous week so far (albeit only Tuesday) but in my opinion if you’ve survived a horrendously hectic Monday then you’re good for the week ahead 😀 It’s been a funny old one here, with a bizarre mixture of thunder storms one minute and then sun splitting the trees the next. Makes it hard to know what to wear…. sandals or thigh-high waders *rolls eyes* Anyways, before I press ahead with today’s post a huuuuge ‘tankin yew’ for the chatters on yesterday’s feature My Top 5 Favourite Nude Lipsticks. If gorgeous soft earthy tones is your kinda shades when choosing the perfect lippy then do check it out… oh, and feel free to tell me your fav nude lip wear too… so I can add it to my wish list of course 😉 hehe

However onto today’s post as we welcome the stunning Stefhanie onto the virtual sofa as she stops to chatter about life behind the scenes of her beauty & lifestyle blog: Honey In A Gold Pot. How utterly sweet is her blog name?! It conjures up cute little fuzzy honey bees & lots of yummy honeycomb in my mind… nom!! Never the less, Stefhanie’s blog is actually super chic, stylish & oh so pretty. Being a cosmetic craver (like most of us round these parts) expect a wealth of beautifully presented posts, news & reviews! Check it out, I’m sure you’ll adore it as much as I do chums, but before you go anywhere time to take a quick peek Behind The Blog…

What inspired you to start blogging?

At first, I started my current blog because there’s competition that time for winning Korea trip, they require us to have 1 blog and start blogging about Korea and share it to as many people as possible. The most interesting and attractive post and blog will win the prize. I didn’t win that time, and begin to lost vision for my blog. I started to blog random post about my life, blog about my photograph because photography also one of my hobby. But after a while, I also lost interest for blogging my photography’s journey. I prefer using Instagram for sharing my photograph. After a while, I decided to switch my majority blog’s topic to beauty and makeup and I really enjoyed it. I’m happy that I’m able to share my experience with products, and blogging also helps me to work up my ability to write and compose something to read (believe it or not, I’m not that fluent for talking in English).

.

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

Nothing too complicated, just decided because of random thought.

So here we go : Stefhanie – I’m either called Stef or Hanny or Hanie (same pronunciation either way) and honey also got same pronunciation. And for the ‘in the gold pot’ part, I’m just making it and somehow it turns out like that. LOL

.

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

Yes of course. Sometimes I overcame it with nothing at all. I just stop and do nothing with my blog. Post nothing at all. And later when I have refreshed my mind, I go back and write again. That’s why I never have a scheduled post on my blog, I just write and post. One at a time.

.

Describe your everyday clothes style:

My everyday clothes style are kind of comfy. Mostly top and jeans and flats or sandals.

.

What are your current top 3 beauty items?

Hmm.. for now I’m really into cushions again. I’m wearing missha magic cushion now, also I really enjoy using fake lashes nowadays. I wear Lavie Lash, it’s a local brand but I heard they already available in Sephora sg & my also! And the last is 3ce real soft cleansing sherbet. I really loving this again. I have my review too for missha cushion & 3ce cleansing sherbet. Make sure that you check it out!

.

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

Watch YouTube, play games, go to bed early.

.

Describe your ideal Saturday night:

Go watch movie (if got interesting one), go hang out with friends, go eat outside.

.

What do you do to relax?

Sleep. LOL

Light up aroma therapy candle.

Listen to music

Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?

Behind The Blog featuring Varsha from The Girl With An Accent…

The Girl With An Accent

Hello, Howdy, Welcome…

I’ve been in such a cheery mood these past few days, heaven knows why as I’ve a list to grumble about – but then who doesn’t, right?! Needless to say, I’m a great believer that a few rays of sun helps, and considering that we’ve been bizarrely blessed with a run of blue skies lately (living in Ireland that’s a rare treat at times) it’s been fabulous getting up in the morning to the sun streaming in through the blinds. Even groggily moving my arm to find a little warm spot on the duvet has been a treat. Can you imagine my elation living in some far flung sunny climate?! Ohh the temptation! However, I shall stop rambling and get right onto today’s feature…

Talking of cheery, I’ve a fabulous blog buddy to introduce y’all too today as the gorgeous Varsha from The Girl With An Accent, joins us for a quick chatter about life behind the scenes of her flourishing lifestyle and beauty blog. Varsha’s blog is a fun mix of many a great topic including yummy recipes, a sprinkling of beauty, a dash of wanderlust and oodles of personality. There literally is something for everyone, so if you haven’t already taken a virtual trip over to Varsha’s corner of the interwebs then be sure to check it out pronto, but not before we take a peek Behind The Blog

Varsha

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

Recipes, beauty, life, ramblings and inspiration!

.

What inspired you to start blogging?

Honestly, I’d been thinking about it for a while. I first wanted to start up a YouTube channel (and even filmed a video rambling on about things!) but that didn’t work out. I was just too insecure. Two years ago, I started writing for the magazine at my university and gradually gained a little confidence. I’ve always loved writing and sharing ideas and experiences but I was always a little insecure about it all. I finally mustered the courage one day and made an impulsive decision to sign up on WordPress and here I am! I’m still relatively anonymous but I’m ready to let people I know read my blog (at least a few close friends).

 .

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

Like I said earlier, I’d been thinking about it for a while before I impulsively clicked the sign up button. About two years ago, I was talking to a friend of mine who lives in India. We started talking about accents and she told me that I had an accent. I told her she had one. That went back and forth a little until I realised we all have accents. It makes everyone simultaneously unique and the same.

It also says a little something about me. People usually can’t place my accent, because I was exposed to so many languages and accents while growing up. I’ve got a bit of a mix of an Indian and an American accent and since I’ve been studying English, an English accent can also be added to the mix. In other words, I’ve got a weird accent (as I’ve been told) and proud of it!

.

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

The thing is I’ve got all these ideas popping up at the wrong times so I end up forgetting most of them (I know, I should be writing them down). So, since I forget I even had an idea, I tend to suffer from Blogger’s Block from time to time. When this happens, I usually check out other blogs (which ends up in liking and commenting all over the place) or browse Pinterest.

.

What’s your favourite post to date? 

Can I pick two? My blog is quite varied so it’s hard to just pick one, I enjoyed writing them all!

Here’s one of my first posts ever “Late Evening Baking Time! – Banana Bread Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies” This one was such an unplanned post! It was nearing midnight. I was literally sitting on my couch watching TV and suddenly got a craving for cookies. So I looked something up and ended up with these delicious cookies!

The other one is beauty related and my first ever “Hello Favourites” I was so excited to use my new Naked Palette and couldn’t wait to share it all my lovely readers. I feel like you can really sense my excitement in this post. I also loved taking the pictures. It truly made me feel like a real blogger.

.

Describe your everyday clothes style:

This one is difficult! My clothes style tends to change with my mood. One day I’m a punk chick, the other day I’m a girly girl wearing a dress. But since I mostly just go to university, my everyday style is usually just denim jeans, t-shirt and cardigan with converse/boots.

.

What are your current top 3 beauty items?

MAC’s Prep+Prime BB compact (review here)

Collection’s Long Lasting Concealer

MAC ‘s lipstick Mehr (review here)

.

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

I like to cosy up on the couch with either a book or a (Bollywood) film with a warm cup of tea.

.

Describe your ideal Saturday night:

Very much like how I relax and unwind after a stressful day. So, watching something on Netflix or even work on my blog! But I also like to hang out with my friends. Maybe even go for a cocktail (or two).

.

What do you do to relax?

I listen to music and read. I also find cooking and baking extremely relaxing. Sometimes I like to watch my favourite shows on Netflix. Or I call my mom or my best friend to talk.

.

Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?

Putting off plans with friends (usually because I’m stressing about university too much). A mundane (and weird) habit of mine is not being able to finish my drink till the last drop. I always leave a little sip at the end of my glass or cup. I don’t know why!

.

What’s your most cherished childhood memory?

Decorating the Christmas tree together with my family every year (including Christmas shopping and all, even though we’re not Christians!). There is one particular memory I have when I was probably barely 4. I’m sitting on the floor while my mom is braiding my hair while I look up at the lights in the Christmas tree twinkle. I just felt so happy in that moment. It’s one of my first really happy memories that I can remember.

.

What was your favourite school subject?

In secondary school it was Biology

At university it’s Second Language Acquisition! (funny how things change)

.

What’s your dream job?

This is a question I’ve been asked to address a lot lately.

Maybe an author. Or a chef. Or a restaurant owner. Or a journalist. Maybe even a full time blogger.

.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I’ll be 27 then, eek!

I see myself holding my master’s degree, along with a teaching certificate. I’ve got a stable and great job. A nice apartment or house somewhere in Europe (most probably the Netherlands). And maybe even thinking about marriage.

.

What top 5 things are on your bucket list?

Travel through all of Europe

See the Northern Lights

Write a novel about my best friend’s love story

Fly in a hot air balloon

Be thoroughly and wonderfully happy

.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

Moving to the Netherlands to live on my own at the age of 17.

.

Who inspires you?

My mom, my friends, all you lovely bloggers!

.

Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?

“Stop thinking of what could go wrong and think of what could go right”

.

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

Just do it. Don’t think of what could go wrong. Think of what could go right. Step out of your comfort zone and touch the waters. It’s a whole new realm of possibilities and learning!

Oh, the wonderful things life brings us when we challenge it.

.

My Small Corner

Like I said in the feature, it’s perfect for anyone who’s starting off in nails or who wants to invest in a maaahoosive selection of nail art goodies within a set budget.

.

Thoughts, makeup, reviews, hauls and chats

.

What inspired you to start blogging?

I’ve always wanted to try it, seeing that so many people can talk about whatever they want.

 .

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

My first blog was called ‘Little me’ since I’m small, ‘My small corner’ is since my blog is small, and since the Internet is so big, my blog is so tiny!

.

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

I do, and I’m yet to find a way to overcome it!

.

What’s your favourite post to date? 

I have so many posts, one of my first posts was about my origami, more recently, probably my primer review or my ‘Girls and women, how old are you?’

https://mysmallcornerisabelle.wordpress.com/2016/02/23/girls-and-women-how-old-are-you/

https://mysmallcornerisabelle.wordpress.com/2016/02/18/review-primers/

.

Describe your everyday clothes style:

Very casual which includes basics, and petite/ children clothes!

What are your current top 3 beauty items?

Maybelline fit me Concealer

Maybelline lash sensational mascara

Bourjois CC cream

All drugstore, keeping to a budget!

.

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

Make sure nobody is going into my room, chill out, then mess around with some makeup, take it off (I know don’t judge!) then have a bath with a lush bath bomb with a face mask!

.

Describe your ideal Saturday night:

Night? Well, since I’m an introvert but love my friends, I’d have probably met up with friends that day, so into the evening I’m in a good mood, but at night, I would probably chill, blog, youtube, all the good stuff!

.

What do you do to relax?

I like to watch youtube, read some blog posts, make a hot chocolate, eat food and chill!

.

Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?

Ahh, well one really really bad habit is that I have my homework or just work out, but not actually do it, and sort of pretend. I’m only fooling myself and it’s something I need to get out of and quick! And yes, I do have other bad habits, but this one first came to mind!

.

What’s your most cherished childhood memory?

I’m still a child in many people’s eyes (I’m 15) but primary school. I feel this is something everyone seems to love and remember, just all the laughter and arguments, and shaping who we are today, though you probably don’t think so!

.

What was your favourite school subject?

Probably computing, oddly enough, I seem to enjoy having this problem and seeing myself solve it, and it’s really satisfying!

.

What’s your dream job?

I’m not sure, probably something to do with tech, internet etc as this area is going to grow and so well, it’s such an exciting time especially for me as when I’m of working age, it’s going to be growing (hopefully) so quickly! I’d love to work for a big company like Google, or Windows, etc!

.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In University, hopefully I’ll have GCSEs and A Levels behind me and successfully completed! Hopefully I won’t be stressing out, and having a reasonably balanced life!

.

What top 5 things are on your bucket list?

I’m an extremely boring person, and I actually don’t have many exciting things I really want to do, I’m scared of everything, like everything, and I feel like I must venture out, or at least expand my comfort zone.

.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

Starting this blog, winning my school’s markets 2 years running, and some school and music stuff!

.

Who inspires you?

My parents, my family, and lots of other celebrities

.

Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?

Not particularly, as they tend to change, and I also tend to just love all sorts. But to name a one ‘Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there’

.

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

Just do it, do it now. If you want, take some time to brain storm names, but other than that, do it! And really see it as the best opportunity!

.

Behind The Blog featuring Sheema Zaman…

sheema zaman

Well it would seem I’m not the only one who goes all gooey at the arrival of a new set of paws! A huuuge thank you to everyone who checked out yesterday’s post ‘A new Arrival‘ & left such love filled comments for little Borris! Needless to say he’s doing superbly, and a few of you mentioned you’d like to see a little more of him so watch this space… I just might get the camcorder out this week to record his cute little waddle! I know, I know, I’m turning into one of those weird & obsessive cat lady’s… but hey, I’m a gooey mess when it comes to cats, particularly baby cats – and I’m glad so many of you love him almost as much as I do 😀

Keeping on the theme of ‘spreading the love’ I have a super duper talented blog buddy to introduce y’all to today as the gorgeous Sheema from Sheema Zaman stylishly graces the virtual sofa this morning to talk about her impeccably presented beauty & lifestyle blog. If you love your dose of blog reading to consist of a cocktail of cosmetics, inspirational fashion, a sprinkling of travel with a dash of lifestyle, then you’ll love Sheema’s blog for sure!

However before you pop over to say hello, grab your cuppa and get comfy as we take a peek Behind The Blog

Sheema

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

A mixed cocktail of everything!

.

What inspired you to start blogging?

I’ve always had a passion for writing and photography. I’ve never enrolled for a photography course but it’s something I always wanted to do. So this time last year, I took the plunge and started blogging and have loved it since.

.

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

Now when I think about it, I wish I had  a very creative one but it’s just my name which is rather boring!

.

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

Yes absolutely, It happens all the time. think it’s important to put out content that you believe in. Never put out anything because you have to or you’re under pressure to do so. I look to people, nature, magazines, websites, for inspiration always.

My blog is an art for me, it’s a visual medium so I try to make sure only content that I’m truly happy with makes it even if I’m a little late in delivering.

.

What’s your favourite post to date?

I enjoyed writing for all my travel posts, but the one that stands out for me has to be the Bicester Village one.

It was a rainy day but I managed to get some good pictures. Also, a little nostalgic as the Carluccio’s restaurant is no longer there and I have very fond memories of it and it’s luckily been captured in the post.

.

Describe your everyday clothes style:

I’d say my style is feminine and fun. I love colour and fabrics and love to mix and match. I love wearing long flowy dresses, with accessories..  a little bohemian touch.

.

What are your current top 3 beauty items?

Lipstick, mascara and a concealer.

.

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

Watching tv with a good cup of coffee is a great relaxation for me. I also love listening to music too.

Describe your ideal Saturday night:

If a good movie is out then def a visit to the cinema is a must! Otherwise I enjoy staying at home compared to going out. I love spending time with friends and family as everyone is always so busy during the weekdays and this is the only time we get to hang out with each other .

.

What do you do to relax?

As before, catching up on tv shows and reading is a great relaxation for me. I watch many re-runs of the cheesiest tv shows, such a guilty pleasure!

.

Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?

In terms of beauty, I hoard a lot of makeup. I don’t wait till it’s finished and will end up buying more. So that’s a habit that I’m trying my best to change now.

.

What’s your most cherished childhood memory?

There are so many fond memories..! Hmm the one that comes to my mind is going to the farm with my parents and siblings when we were younger and picking strawberries. We used to go pretty much every weekend and I really miss those times.

.

What was your favourite school subject?

I really enjoyed my English lessons, I had also written many poems in school and so my teacher got it published for me. It was only one book for school use but it was an achievement for me.

.

What’s your dream job?

I love travelling and photography. So maybe a travel photographer or an interior designer. I love the creative aspects of these jobs.

.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I would just like to live a healthy happy life with near and dear ones.

.

What top 5 things are on your bucket list?

* I’m fascinated by stars, so walking under the stars on a beach

* to see the northern lights

* to watch the running of the bulls in Pamplona Spain

* to have a bonfire party

* to travel as much as I can

.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

Gosh, I think it’s yet to come

.

Who inspires you?

As cliched as it may sound, my inspiration comes from my parents first. I think any child looks up to their parents especially during their early life. Then, all those people who make such a positive change with their thoughts and actions inspire me greatly.

.

Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?

I love this quote by Rumi which is so uplifting ” Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure”.

.

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

If there’s one thing that I have learnt, it is to be patient. A lot of people give up early. It takes time and effort for results to show. So keep working on good content and success will follow surely.

Connecting with fellow bloggers is key! Try to engage and communicate with likeminded people and it opens up the communications channels for you.

Most importantly be you!

QUICK FIRE QUESTIONS:

Tea or Coffee = Tough one.. I love both!

Coke or Pepsi = neither (no fizzy drinks)

Messy mayhem or Super Organised = Super organised

Cute kitten or Playful puppy = Cute kitten

Night In or Night Out = Night in

Heels or Flats = Heels

Lip Stick or Lip Gloss = Lipstick

Rock Chick or Pop Princess = Can I say a bit of both?!

Paperback or E-book = Definitely paperback – I need to feel the physical book in hand
