As you know this isn't my usual uploading day (for any new readers, welcome! I post on Sundays) but from now on, I will be posting during the week for this HUGE collab - as well as the usual Sunday post. This is so, so exciting! There are lots many lovely ladies involved and I am excited to get to know them and their blogs.
Beauties on Fire is the collaboration name we all decided on. And I love the name. Each week there will be a twitter poll which you can see on Elisabeth's profile or mine, because I will retweet. In that poll will be suggestions for the following theme of post. Such as Summer or Ocean. We will then all create a look based on this theme. So I may switch between the fashion and makeup looks depending on which idea I think will fit better for the theme. I hope that makes sense to you all.
Be sure to vote in this weeks poll! - @hardwick_katie or @eandnblog.
Elisabeth is the amazing lady who thought of the idea and organised the whole thing. So be sure to check her post HERE where she explains the whole thing a lot better than I have!
Anyway this is basically an introductory post for the collab just so that you guys can get excited about this and meet everyone through links. Lets get started!
1.) Tell us a little about your blog and why you decided to start blogging.
Well, my first post was in August 2014. So its almost two, aww! I don't even remember why I started blogging. I think I either really wanted to talk about the ALS ice bucket challenge, and someone recommended blogging or I experimented. I can't even remember!
My blog is called 'Welcome to this, not sure what it is' because when I was setting it up, I had no idea what I was doing and just wrote something that could be replaced if needed. It basically reflects myself as I never know what I'm doing. I would love to have a proper name but I have no idea as to what it could be, let me know any suggestions you have in the comments!
To me, my blog is a relaxed place I can be myself. I Don't feel like I am being judged by anyone and I like that. Its my little safe corner of the internet.
2.) How long have you been blogging?
Nearly two years, as I have mentioned. Gosh,it has gone very quick! it doesn't feel like I have been doing it for this long, and I don't see myself stopping any time soon! :)
3.) Do you consider yourself a fashion blogger, beauty blogger, or both?
I'd say I'm definitely more of a beauty blogger as I mention makeup in a fair few posts. But I have also done a post on a favourite outfit a while back. However, I am also lifestyle, I like to update you guys on things going on in my life (because, why not?).
4.) List 3 things you love to do besides blogging.
- Play my Xbox - a lot of the time...
- Experiment with makeup, I love to do tattoos on myself! Even if they don't look real haha.
- Shop. I shouldn't shop as much as I do, because I don't have a job. I get pocket money though so I get to buy new and exciting makeup!
- (Adding a little extra for you lovelies) Art. I love to draw, paint and be creative.
5.) What style of makeup do you enjoy the most: Natural, Trendy, Glamorous? Show us some of your best looks...you can create a small collage for this (this collage can be used to show readers your beauty style). Also, what is one beauty product you can’t live without and why.
Well, to be honest, it depends on my mood. Most of the time I will keep it relatively natural with a wing, but I do like to go all out sometimes. I recently bought a purple lipstick which is cool and I have yet to wear out the house. I'd either say I couldn't live without lip balm because I always feel my lips are dry even if they aren't. If not that, then mascara because you can wear this on its own without anything else and it will still look normal. Here are a few of my looks I have done:
I hope you guys are as thrilled as we all are about this. Be sure to read everyone else's post and get involved! Click on the link at the start of the post to go to Elisabeth's post and connect with everyone. I love you all.
