Blogging and Beauty | Q&A - July 2015

I am constantly spouting out information about stuff that I want to talk about, but I don't often give you what you want to hear so I thought I would give you a Q&A so I can tell you what you actually want to know and not what I think you might like to know! I've had questions from Twitter and Facebook as well as a few blog comments so if you have any questions, be sure to let me know to be featured in the next one! If i get enough questions, I hope to do them every month!

What are your top 5 products? - Charleigh - www.theglossytruth.blogspot.co.uk
That is such a hard question! I love so many things I think it would be really hard to pick 5, but I am going to try.  I think I would go with the Rimmel 25 hour Foundation, the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, theBalm Mary LouManizer and MAC Peach Blossom.

What inspired you to start blogging? - Sanya Majid - www.desire4beauty.wordpress.com
Well, I was obsessed with Makeup and Beauty and felt that I needed an outlet.  I was always the friend that everybody came to if they needed any help with anything beauty related and people always asked my opinions on products before buying them so I thought I might as well have somewhere where I can talk about all things beauty for everyones enjoyment and hopefully it would be useful to some people. I love to be able to help so this was the easiest way for me to do that. YouTube was obviously my first consideration but the whole concept of that scared me a bit, I feel like you are judged so much more on there as it is so much more public and your face is out there for every body to see. I feel like being sat behind a computer and typing is a lot easier and even though you have seen photos of me, you never truly know the person behind the blog which makes it harder to judge and push negativity towards them which made me feel a lot more comfortable.  As I have previously mentioned, I may delve into the world of YouTube at some point but at the moment I am quite content with my blog.

What blogs do you love? - Jenny Ross - www.borntoblend.blogspot.co.uk
I love a lot of the big bloggers, like RosyChicc, TheSundayGirl, Tanya Burr, Zoella and all that jazz.  I mostly tend to read the smaller bloggers though, like MonochromeDaisies, ThePerksofMeg, emilysbeautythoughts and theglossytruth.

What motivates you daily? - Jenny
I honestly don't know! I am finding it quite hard to be motivated at the moment, I'm going through a rather strange stage at the moment. I either feel miserable or feel nothing at all which really isn't like me so I'm not really sure what's going on, but I just feel like I have no energy to do anything which makes motivation quite difficult.  The only thing that I really do is think of all the things I have to look forward to and that usually gives me a bit of a kick up the backside to get up and do stuff but apart from that this is an area in which I could probably do with some help in!

What do you love the most about blogging? - again from Jenny
There are so many things I love about blogging! I love making new friends and collaborating with other bloggers, as well as getting good feedback on my hard work. I love reading through your comments and it really makes my day when I read the amazing feedback you give me! It really makes the hard work and stress worthwhile and reminds me why I'm doing this. Also, the most obvious thing would be being able to talk about makeup as much as possible, I could go on all day and when I get into writing a blogpost, I get really into talking about products I love and just get lost in writing which is an amazing feeling as weird as it sounds.

That is it for this month's Q&A, I will be back same time again next month with questions so make sure you tweet me or leave me a comment with them so you can be featured next month!
