Summer Q&A 2017

Hello everyone,
Wowee...it's been a while since I've done a Q&A hasn't it?The last time I was asking for questions from my Instagram followers(consisting of about 600 accounts with only about 60 active ones)was all the way back in January 2016.Today there's over 1000 of you and pah,gurl you can bet on it that those 60 active accounts has doubled like 5 times.

I really hope that this Q&A can help you all learn more about me because I would very much like to open up to my readers more.Sometimes it can be a little odd reading up about someone's opinions who you know nothing about yanno?I just want to break the ice a little more.



I have linked all Instagram accounts and any blogs written by these Instagrammers with the questions so please feel free to check them out!

Favourite summer wardrobe piece?
This is a hard one but it's probably a all white frilly top with cut out shoulders that I bought from Primark.Its absolutely gorgeous(two trend in one?What's not to love!)and best of all,it was less than a tenner.


What are you summer makeup essentials?
Primer,primer,primer!I love Collection's Primed & Ready primer with witch hazel because it helps to make applying face makeup 10× easier as it smooths over skin much better than without.Of course,with hot humid weather it's always good to apply primer for the longer lasting makeup benefits too.As for lip products,I also cannot go without a good bright colour such as MUA's liquid lipstick in Halcyon.

Top apps other than social media at the moment?
About two weeks ago I downloaded Episode after constantly seeing ads on Youtube about the app and its fair to say since then I've been hooked.Currently I'm reading "My Brother's Bestfriend" and it is quite addicting because at the end of each chapter there's always a cliff hanger.

What blogger friends would you like to meet and why?
Aw I'd probably definitely have to meet you because you've been ever so kind to me on Instagram as well as other fellow Instagramers.

What do you think about bloggers being shamed about ads?
Personally I think that as long as as long as the blogger isn't recklessly promoting brands that they wouldn't want anything do with if it wasn't for the money then I totally think that people should be more supportive.For an instance,if you love creating content and want to mention a brand that you love then the sponsorship is totally a great bonus.


What are you best photography tips?
The tip that I have found most useful from day one is to turn up your exposure!Doing this will instantly increase your lighting which is ery important if you want to avoid dark,grainy pictures when the natural sunlight isn't having the best of days.Secondly I would recommend that you must always make sure that your hand is still and that the subject in the picture is in focus(blurry flatlays aren't fun to look at in my opinion).

Where do you see your blog in 5 years?
In 5 years I will be 20/21 years old(whatttt?)so hmm,by then I would be in university?I hope in 5 years time I'll still be going at the blogging game with a blog that has flourished into a successful platform that perhaps I can make a small living from.


Favourite clothes shop? 
I definitely have more than one!I'm always loving the things up for grabs in New Look,Topshop and of course my absolute bae Primark.I also quite like H&M for more casual clothes although I haven't bought a lot from them these past few months.

What is your all time favourite makeup product?
Unfortunately I have to admit that I don't think I've yet come into contact with a product that I can't get enough of but I have really been loving using Maybelline's Instant Anti-age concealer recently so does that count?Haha.

What is your biggest blogging goal?
It would be an absolute dream for me to be able to build a blog successful enough where I could perhaps travel with brands as I love exploring different cultures.As well as that it would also be super cool if I could write a book or be featured on a magazine.However,most importantly I would be very much happy if I could simply just meet other bloggers and make new friends.

What's your favourite colour to paint your nails?
Nudes and pinks for sure,I love how classy and elegant the shades look with anything you wear.


Favourite show/series?
A few days ago I binged watched Stranger Things and it as amazing,I loved how mysterious the plot was!If you haven't already I definitely would recommend it as the child actors have done an amazing job at portraying the characters-in particular Eleven(played by Millie Bobby Brown).Season two comes out in October and I can't wait to find out more about what's going on.
Who are your current favourite bloggers?
Hannah Gale has always been a favourite of mine because of her honesty and genuineness however lately I have been enjoying reading posts written by people such as Pint Sized Beauty and London Beauty Queen.

Why did you start a blog?
For a long time I was obsessed with beauty vloggers on Youtube(notably Zoella of course).Suddenly girls my age like Quisha Rose and Floral Princess bursted onto the scenes so one day I thought why not?They were both quickly becoming super successful and I wanted a shot at doing something which I knew that I would love.English was my favourite subject in school,makeup was something that I was picking up on and being a young teen,I had plenty of time on my hands...blogging was the perfect solution to a hobby.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the people of asked questions because without them,this post would not have been possible.

Are there any questions you would like to ask me?Comment them down below and I shall get back to you asap!

  6. I completely agree with you on the question about bloggers being shamed for ads, people have told me I shouldn't be doing it before but I always make sure that I like the brand I am promoting before going any further with any deals! I know what you mean, its completely unfair!!

    1. I totally understand,ads are fantastic bonuses for genuine,hard working bloggers so why should people spoil their/our chances of working with a much loved brand x

  7. Twins! I have the exact same mug,gifted to me by my close friend and the same Zoella perfume. I really liked you answers and there's nothing really much to ask. As for Episode(the app), I've been meaning to download it but my phone's run out of space from "Hooked(another app for creepy stories to read,preferably at night).Awesome Q&A and I couldn't agree more with your photography tips-blurry objects=less appealing photo.😬 Anyways, I’m also commenting to say congratulations, I’ve nominated you for the Mystery Blogger Award!!πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ To smoother out all the rules of the award as well as the questions you may have, check out the link below:
