5. Thank the person who tagged you and link their blog.

6. You must answer all the questions


1.Do you plan for each/some of your blog posts, if so, how do you do this?
Yes, I do plan most of my blog posts but some days I just like to sit down and write about something different, for example: The Weekend Post. I like to take a job lot of pictures, upload them to my laptop and then write about them when I get time. If I get stuck for ideas then I, have a flick through some magazines or have a look at other people's blogs.

2.Do you have a blogging notebook/diary where you write and plan about things to do with your blog? 
I do and I use it to jot down notes and blog ideas in. It makes it easier for me because I can plan what date I'm going to upload blog posts on.

3.Do you feel pressured to buy things so that you have something to review on your blog?
No, I only buy things that I really want and if I'm in need inspiration/ideas, then I'll have a look through magazines. I don't just blog about beauty though, I enjoy writing about fashion and accessories too!

4.Has your style of your blog posts/blog been influenced by someone else. If so, who?
I love Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup, thats where I got the idea 'The Weekend Post'. I have a blogroll at the top of my blog if you want to check out other blogs I enjoy reading, and I get ideas from all of them really. I like a nice simple layout for my blog too.

5.What are your favourite posts to plan and write about?
I really enjoy writing reviews because they are always so helpful for other people. I love to plan fashion posts as well.

6.Do you think that your knowledge of makeup (and applying it) has improved because of blogging?
My knowledge has definitely improved but I've learnt most of what I know about makeup on YouTube. I've watched makeup videos for years now and have picked up a lot of tips along the way. 

7.Do you test all of products for a certain amount of time before you review them?
I review a product when I feel like I've used it enough, for example a nail polish wouldn't take too long to test out but if it's a products that claims to for example: give you an even complexion in 4 weeks, then I'll test it for 4 weeks and give you the verdict. 

8.Do you have any other websites for your blog? (e.g, twitter, YouTube, Bloglovin' or a Facebook page etc. )
I have a Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Hellocotton and Bloglovin' account. They are all on the right-hand side of my blog, to follow me just click on them. I like to have lots of different accounts so people can follow me on various different things.

9.Do you feel the need to buy something you have wanted EVEN more when you see your favourite blogger talking about it?
YESS! Definitely. I love watching hauls, and whenever I see one of my favourite blogger talking about a product I love already, I decide I NEED to have it!

10.Do you find taking pictures to be a chore, or not?
I get annoyed when I can't get a good photo but most of the time I enjoy taking a few snaps of my makeup for the blog. I don't have a professional camera or anything like that so I don't find it as easy as other bloggers.
