Let’s Talk Beauty, Blogging & Brands! -Updated Q&A 2017

IMG_9609.jpg

Hello everyone, 

I hope you are all well and are having a lovely weekend! It has been quite some time since I did a Q&A on my blog back in August so I thought another one was due! Thank you so much to everyone who sent me their questions as I have thoroughly enjoyed answering as many as I could! I hope you enjoy my lovelies…

Before I start, I would just like to say a mahusive thankyou to everyone who has helped me reach almost 500 followers on my blog! 500 of you amazing people on my blog!! I know this may be a small number to some of you, but to me it’s something much more than just a number. I know this is going to be very cringey and it’s what everyone says but I am honestly overwhelmed!! When I started my blog I never imagined that anyone would even read it and considering that we hit 1oo in July, I am so proud of how our little family has grown!! Whether you have been following my blog from the start or just followed a few days ago, each and every one of you brighten my day when I see a like or comment and it’s so nice to know that people hopefully enjoy and get pleasure out of what I love doing! Anyway enough of my very long ramble, onto the Q&A… IMG_9613.jpg

Q&A

1. Who were your main inspirations to start your blog? –@Louloves01

I have always had an interest in photography ever since I can remember and within the last few years I have become increasingly more obsessed with makeup and beauty products which made me realise that I would love to set up a blog! In the future I would like to become a photographer, web designer or something down the media/photography path so I hoped that my blog could give me great practice in what I love doing after seeing that there were quite a lot of beauty/fashion bloggers out there too!

2. What’s your favorite part of blogging? (e.g writing, planning or photography) –@Floral_bee

It is hard to choose what part is my favourite out of being a beauty blogger as I love everything about it from planning the posts, taking the photos and then writing them but I would have to go with the photography part of blogging!

3. What’s your favourite makeup product at the moment? –@Theaveragegurlx & @typicallyella

This is again hard to choose one product as I have a few that I’ve been loving recently but it would have to be my Benefit Gimmie Brow which I’m sure you are all sick of me talking about by now but I can’t rave about it enough!! I’m also loving the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipstick in the shade ‘Nude Gold’ because it is BEAUTIFUL! 

4. What’s your favourite thing about the month of January? –@Bethxkate

The first thing that springs to mind is that it stays light for longer as we get further into January and of course the January sales!! On a serious note, I also love the fact that January is the start of a new year and there’s a lovely feeling of 2017 being a clean slate!

5. Who is your fashion inspiration/where do you get it from? –@Lifeastillyrose

Although I like to follow the fashion trends, I would say my style is quite simple and casual. I usually like to wear a wooly jumper, jeans and some ankle boots at this time of year but in Summer I like to make a bit more effort with my clothes with all the cute jumpsuits and pretty tops! I would say I get it from other bloggers and what trends are popular at the time! IMG_9624.jpg

6. What are your top tips for stress? – @Girlyblogger.xx

At the moment I have got quite a few exams coming up so this question is very relatable! Although I am no expert I would say writing all your thoughts down is a great way to get everything that is spinning round your head down on paper. Making lists are also great as you can tick things off as you go along! Even though you might be working hard, making time for a break is necessary as I find my brain will get to a certain point and then the information just won’t go in!

7. What is your favourite colour lipstick for January? –@Itsniamhgrace

At the moment I have been wearing a nude lip practically every day this month! If it’s not a nude lip I’m wearing it will be a pinky nude/dark pink.

Also from Niamh…

What are your favourite high-end products?

I tend to mix between drugstore and high-end products but you probably know that I am going to choose…another Benefit product which is the Benefit They’re Real mascara. It’s such a great mascara that lengthens, adds volume and does everything that I would want a mascara to do! I also love the shape of the wand as it can reach to all of your inner corner lashes. I’m not sure if you class The Body Shop as being high end but I wouldn’t call it drugstore either so another sort of high end product that I’m in love with is The Body Shop Go For Gold Eyeshadow Quad. It contains 4 gorgeous shades and it is overall such a great quality palette! I would definitely recommend their palettes!

img_96368. What do you prefer, Rimmel or Maybelline? – @Georgiahollie.xo

Rimmel and Maybelline are actually two of my favourite drugstore brands so this is a very difficult question to answer! I love Maybelline’s mascaras and brow products and but I am equally obsessed with Rimmel’s lipsticks and their mascaras ahh! I think I’m going to have to go with Rimmel.

Also from Georgia…

What’s your favourite season/time of year?

My favourite month is probably December because even though the weather is very cold here in Britain, everywhere is so festive and I thoroughly enjoy the whole Christmas period! I also love the Summer season too when the weather is hopefully warmer!

What’s your favourite movie/film ever!?

There are lots of films that I love but I would have to say Elf, Diary Of A Wimpy Kid (because it is just hilarious even though I am probably too old to be still watching it lol) and Nativity.

9. How did you come up with your blogging name? –@blossomofhope.x

If you didn’t already know my middle name is Rose and as I love photography I came up with rosetintedpics as I wanted to put my own spin on it!

That brings me to the end of my Q&A! Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this post even though it’s a bit different to what I usually do! Thank you also to those who asked me questions and I hope I managed to answer them for you! A huge thank you again for almost reaching 500 followers, you guys are flipping amazing!!

Much Love, Amelia xx
