TAG: Blog Your Heart Out

Saturday 8 March 2014


Hi Dolls!

Hope you are all having a nice start to the weekend?

I had yesterday off work, but unfortunately I didn't get to do anything fun because I had to wait in all day for a surveyor to come (house selling problems again!). But it did mean I could catch up with all the great new blogs I've found recently, soooo...every cloud and all that!

Lauren from Life of Miley, who I met at the Midlands Blog Meet, has very kindly tagged me in this cute post, so here I go:

Blogging My Heart Out!

Blog your heart out is just answering 5 questions then tagging 5 other bloggers.

1. Who/what encouraged you to start blogging?

I started blogging because I really love writing, and I wanted a way to write something that was a 'quick fix'. But what's really encouraged me is getting to know other bloggers! Everyone has been so lovely and encouraging and I've realised that it doesn't matter if my blog isn't the glossiest out there, because really its just for my own enjoyment.

2. How did you choose what topics to blog about?

I actually went back and forth at the start, between beauty stuff, or topics that were a bit more personal. But then I realised that opinions change over time, and I didn't neccessarily want to have mine at a particular point out there for all eternity, so the beauty stuff took over. I had a couple of jobs working on make-up counters (Benefit, Givenchy and Clarins) that I really enjoyed part-time when I was a student, and I've always just loved the power cosmetics have to change your mood and appearance. I blame my mum really, she's always been a complete make-up addict as well and obviously passed it on!

3. What is something most people don’t know about you?

When I was about 2 and a half, I went through a phase of insisting I would only eat blue food. This meant my poor mother had to dye mashed potatoes, rice pudding and cauliflower cheese with blue food colouring or I wouldn't touch it!

4. What three words describe your style?

Style as in clothes or blogging? For blogging - long-winded, friendly, over-excited! For style: rock, classic and minimalist.

5. What do you love to do when you are not blogging?

Shopping, doing up my house, running, visiting friends or spending time with my lovely husband, Sebastian.

The five bloggers I tag are:

Antoinette from Letters To A
Alice Anne from Annie Writes Beauty
Kerry from Kerry Just Beauty
Kylie from Lazy2Lovely
Sydney from SydneyLuella


  1. What's this midlands blog meet ? I'm from the midlands ... Walsall xxx

  2. It was a few weeks ago Kerry...it was the first one they've organised. It was only a small one but it was great fun. I'll let you know if they organise another one! xx

  3. Lovely post - but, erm, blue food?!

  4. Haha, I know Cate! I was a strange child to say the least. I had all kinds of odd eating habits. And my mother was a bit of a hippy so she just tolerated it. Must have been awful with all the E numbers in blue good colouring! Xx
