Hey everyone, I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend and have enjoyed the Summer Holidays. A few weeks ago I was nominated for the blog tour award which is amazing, I never imagined anyone would nominated me for a blog award so I'm absolutely over the moon. Chloe nominated me for the blog tour award, I absolutely love her blog so make sure you check it out now http://www.chloechats.blogspot.co.uk/
When I started my blog last year I never ever imagined it would get as many page views as it does now. Last August I had barely any page views and this August I have had over 1,000 just in August, I am so happy that people are reading my blog, commenting, following me on bloglovin' because honestly it means the world to me. I'm always trying to improve the quality of my blog posts as I only want to publish the posts with the best content. I have started back at Sixth Form so I am going to be very busy but I'm still going to aim for at least 1 blog post a week.
If you have any ideas on what you would like to see on my blog, feel free to comment them below or tweet me.
So as I have been nominated I have to answer four questions:
How does your blog differ from others in your genre?
When I first started my blog I just wanted to include posts about beauty but now I am also wanting to include other topics I'm interested in like travelling and lifestyle posts, I have included a few posts about holidays I have been on because I love travelling and visiting new places. I have also included a few posts about summer schools I have been to at Universities because I want to share my experiences.
How does your writing/creative process work?
Normally as soon as I have a good idea, I have to start writing the post immediately, I can't do half of it and save it as a draft, I have to finish a post straight away. I often write my post ideas and plan on when that post will be posted and whether or not I will need to buy anything for the post. I have some really good ideas that I think I will start in January, so keep an eye out for those.
Why do you write and create what you do?
When I first started my blog, I just wanted to try writing posts on my favourite beauty products but now I want to share my experiences such as the holidays I've been on. New York was one of the best holidays I have ever been on, I even debated whether or not I should blog about it but I'm so glad I did because I am able to have my amazing memories on my blog forever.
What are you working on at the moment?
I recently came back from a holiday in Malta where I visited Gozo which is an absolutely beautiful island and Valletta which is the gorgeous capital of Malta so I am hoping to write a blog post about the amazing holiday I had. And as I said above I have some really good ideas on blog posts but I think I will start them in January as a kind of special monthly blog post. I also have some really good ideas for blog posts for the run up to Christmas so keep an eye out for these.
My first nomination isI love this blog, one of my favourite posts of hers is her living in Malta post, I read this before I went on holiday there and it made me even more excited to visit Malta.
My second nomination isI absolutely love her blog post, one of my favourite posts is the first impression of the Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate palette, I think her make up skills are absolutely amazing!
My third nomination isshe is amazing at make up, one of my favourite posts is the one about the 2nd Urban Decay palette, I just loved her make up for that post, her smokey eye look was incredible!!
Lastly, my final nomination isI love her travel Tuesday posts, I really want to travel the world when I'm older and I love reading her blog posts on the amazing countries and cities she's been to.
If those nominated want to get involved then they must nominate at least 4 other bloggers and answer the four questions I have above. I think all the blogs I've nominated above are amazing, so check them out now!
I also want to thank you all for getting my blog to 400 followers on Bloglovin' I honestly can't believe how fast it's growing. Thank you all. I also want to know if you would like me to make an Instagram related to my blog because the Instagram I have at the minute is on private so comment below if you would follow me on a Instagram focused on my blog and make up. Thank you xxxxxxxx
Never give up on your dreams xxxxx
