I saw this tag on one of my favourite blogs of all time called Chloe's way, i thought that i may as well give it a go so here goes!

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I started blogging back in 2012, i started my blog which was then called fashionality, i started my blog because most of my friends in school aren't really interested in makeup and beauty as me , and at that time i was really into Tavi Gevinsons blog: The Style Rookie!, so i decided i would try out this 'blogging' lark, and im so glad i did. I wish i could say i never looked back but I'm quite clumsy so i did drop a couple of things on the way which i had to go back and pick up.

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
I fell in love with Tavi's blog, the style rookie, particular her older post, i think that this was because she was the same age as me when she started blogging, and look at where she is now, she's editor of her own online magazine with a yearbook out and can go to every fashion show under the sun and yet still she is so down to earth ! She's my role model and i had an english exam where we had to right a biography so i had to do some research and i chose tavi for that, i got good marks as well whoop whoop! I wrote a little more about her here!

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product that you bought? Was it worth the hype?
Ooo, this ones tough, i think it was about bright red bold lipstick, i went out and bought the Kate moss one which can be found here , and  put it on ready for a video and yeah, it looked hideous,  I was so exited to have a red lipstick, but i think its because my skins so pale, blame England and genetics and stuff, it look as if i was a vampire, so that went to my sister. 

What are you five favourite things about blogging and being a Beauty Blogger?
1: the hopefully obvious one: Blogging, i love this as i fill up any spare time i have and im putting it to good use, for other people to read and hopefully get inspiration to blog, thats what blogging all about.
2: Telling everyone, hah, i love telling everyone i have a blog, and they get really impressed aha:)
3:The comments, I absolutely love your comments, they make me happy:)
4: I love reading your blogs! I always spend time reading your guys posts
5: I like looking back and improving from my old posts!

What have you learnt from being a Beauty Blogger? 
I have learnt a lot! One of the things is, instead of writing for an audience, write what you want to read, then you'll enjoy writing more and your readers will benefit, there reading your posts,not who you want to write about!

Have you changed anything since becoming a Beauty Blogger? 
Yeah, two things have changed, one of them being my photography skills and the camera, which used to be my poor ipad camera picture, but i now have a Samsung camera,which is great quality *note to self : find out camera i have* , and also me. I have changed a lot since i started, not to improve my self but to be more me,i used to blog and try to be someone else, but im now me, i think i have also changed physically like my face and height, i would do a then and now picture but im in my pj's with my hair in a messy bun, so maybe next time! 

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out? 
Wow, this is tough, i don't usually give advice, im usually on the receiving end, but i think it's the fact you dont need anything to be a beauty blogger, no flashy camera, no setup lights or flashy clothes. Also just have a go, be yourself and dont copy others, write your own stuff! Just have fun writing it, dont worry if you haven't got a million followers on your first post, it takes time!

What are your top 5 makeup brands?
MUA- this is my favourite ever! There products are so so good and at a reasonable price, i love all of there stuff, especially there eyeshadow palettes!
Natrual Collection - these are great for basics, and very good price, everything under £1.99 i think!
Beauty Uk- Great for bright vibrant products, this brands mascara is the only mascara i will ever buy.
Maybelline- Their babylips products are the best. Go get some here
Boujois Paris- not exactly cheap but great quality, a little of any of there products goes a long way!

Recommend your top 5 beauty products.. *
5: Natural collection concealer  - Great product, cheap and is a god send! I really can't imagine life with out it, great colour,blends in well!
4: Smash box foundation, cant find it on the website.. where has it gone? - Anyway, very pricey foundation but im telling you now, a little goes a long way, perfect colour blends in well, all the good qualities which you expect for in a foundation that price: around £27. But not many foundations are this light so i struggle to find a cheaper alternative so this is number 4 in my top 5!
3: Beauty uk's mascara - I have a little story to tell, basically i got given one this product as part of a beauty pack as a freebie, and i immediately fell in love with it, its perfect, it doesn't give you clumpy lashes or its not to dark, but then it ran out! Bummer, so then i went to my local super drug store they didn't have it anymore, which is a bum so I bought this one, but it made my eyes to clumpy and the wand was to big, but i didn't want to waste it so what i don't is used the old wand which i had for my last mascara and put t in this one, its so much better, but when i run out i will try and get hold of my old one. That probably wont make sense but it did in my head haha
2:Miss sporty eyeliner - This is the best eyeliner i have ever had, its a great applicator, although they have altered it so now its more thick but still great, and ridiculously cheap, it stays on all day so is good for on the go, can't fault this amazing product!
1:  Maybelline Baby lips! If you have read my last couple of blog posts, you would have seen me rave about this item! I often watch YouTube videos about this product but for ages its only been available in the states, which is an absolute BUM! But i saw these in boots and i bought the pink punch one, and have used it every day since, it gives a lovely pink tint to your lips while hydrating them at the same time. Yes i will be investing in every single one of this collection when i have the money!

*I will be doing reviews on all these products in later posts!

Ok see you guys later!

Well, finally my Super drug order came! Well it came yesterday, we released that the parcel force, didn't deliver Saturday and Sunday and that's why it came Monday! Well, they could of told me, so this is a post of what i got! Using my Samsung camera , i think i can get good shots in my garden actually!

Baby Lips Lip Tint
Finally, this products available in England! I have watched so many YouTube videos which have included this product and saying how good this collection of tinted lip balms are, and when i was dong my order, i saw these and i can't explain my happiness. I've really wanted to buy these but i didn't want to pay the cost of delivery from America so i just had to sit tight and wait. These are really cheap, and moisturise your lips while giving them a tint of pink colour: and they smell like heaven.

Price : £2.99
Rate: 9/10
Worth the price?: YES.
Would you buy again: OBVIOUSLY.

Batiste Dry Hair Shampoo

I used this shampoo today, for the first time, seeing as i only got this product Monday, and i have fallen in love. The only dry Shampoo i have used before is the batiste mini bottles, mine was in blush. I used that mini bottle up quite quickly but haven't bothered to buy a new one. So when i came to do my order i thought, why not and bought one for £2.99. This product is great and smells of cherries, seeing as that's the flavour and it has them all over the bottle haha.. This is a great product for 2nd day hair.

Price: £2.99
Rate: 8/10
Worth the price: Bit expensive but overall yes.
Would you buy again: Yes

Eyelash curler
I have never had an eyelash curler in my life, as i believed that they were ALL to expensive ( for me £7-£8 was a bit to expensive for my liking). But when i was on this order, i looked on a youtube video of what someone bought in a super-drug haul and they bought one, and this product was quite cheap. As i had never bought an eyelash curler i wasn't completely sure on how i was supposed to do it, so i looked on a couple of YouTube videos and with the help of my sister, im getting the hang of it now!

Price: £2
Rate: 8/10
Worth the price: Yeah
Would you buy again: 100% yes

Face sponge:
i dont really have much to say about this product other than its a sponge. It's great to remove make-up.

Price: 99p
Rate: 7/10
Worth the price: I guess
Would you buy again: yeah

It's quite hard to rate a sponge actually.

Nail polish
This is thee most amazing nail polish ever. Make up academy have done it yet again and produced an amazing nail polish. his one is in the shade of pistachio ice cream and i have a story to tell about this. Basically i had been doing my order for around a week, and i had found this nail polish when i first started my order, and typically, it was out of stock. I was bummed, then i happened to search for it again seconds before i completed my order, and they had it, i was so so so happy like i was silently screaming on the inside. I  am wearing this nail polish right now, the only thing is that you have to do a couple of coats for a full coverage.

Price: £1.00
Rate: 9/10
Worth the price: YES!
Would you buy again: YES!

Mua lip trio in scarlet
This is one of those: Oh i have a few pound left to spend, oh i will get it kind of buy. But i am really happy i bought this product and is great price, like most of the Mua products are.

Price: £1.50 ( Usually £2.50)
Rate: 8/10
Worth the price: Yes.
Would you buy again: Maybe, in a different shade.

Mua eye palette in heaven and earth
This is yet again a great value product from Makeup academy, and i'm really looking forward to playing around and contouring these different shades. I have discovered a YouTube tutorial where you can find HERE. So i will have have a go and get to you on that.

Price: £4.00
Rate: 8.5/10
Worth the price?: yes
Would you buy again?: Yes

My Little Hints & Tricks

So every person in the beauty industry has their own hints and tricks, so i will share some of my own with you. i don't have a job so i cant earn that much money to buy loads and loads so most of these tricks help you save some money, every little helps! Lets go!

1: .Wear white eyeliner to make eyes appear less red
2: For the summer months, you don’t want to be caked in foundation so try a tinted moisturizer instead.
3: To add volume to clean or unwashed hair, use a dry shampoo spray.
4: Use a shimmer eye shadow to compliment a bold matte lip.
5:When using a cream product, lock it in by using a translucent powder over it.
6: Don't be to serious with make-up play around with it!
7: If you have chipped nail-polish, add crackle nail polish on top to disguise the look of chipping!
8: Don't spend to much money on makeup remover product, baby wipes are cheap and just as good!
9:Use Ice Cubes To Keep Fat, Acne And Wrinkles At Bay
10: De- puff your eyes with raw potatoes
11:Fragrance rises, so spritz it on your ankles or behind your knees to help your scent last longer
12:If your bored with your natural hair colour, but you're not allowed to dye it, use a eyeshadow ad apply its to the ends for a easily washed out colour!
13: Your blush and lip colour should be in the same colour family to look more natural 
14:Don't rub your concealer tap it in, rubbing causes wrinkles!
15: Play up your lips or your eyes, but never both
16:Spend money on key beauty products
17: Always try before you buy, most drugstores offer testers to try before you bye.
18:A spritz of lemonade on damp hair to give hold and texture
19: Heat up eye lash curlers before using them!
20: Put Tea bags on tired eyes

Well, that's just 20 i could think of, there's lots more where that came from! 

So today i done a big super drug order online, and im very impatient so i didnt want to wait, so i paid £5 for next day delivery so i will post another post tomorrow showing you what i got! Also as its the holidays now i dip dyed my hair this was the result:

 See you tomorrow!
