The Beauty Blogger Tag and 50 Followers Giveaway

Hello! I feel like I haven't blogged in ages but if you follow me on twitter then you might have seen that I have been away on holiday. I did schedule some posts whilst I was away but I wanted to have a little bit of a break. I arrived back this morning to find out that I had hit 50 followers on bloglovin. Arrgghhhhhhhhh! < That was pretty much my reaction! I can't believe that I have 50 followers and I am so grateful to every one of them. In order to celebrate I wanted to do the Beauty Blogger Tag and then a competition. I hope you enjoy it and once again a huge thank you, you have all made me so happy!

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?

I have been blogging for about 3 months now. I have been reading blogs and watching youtube videos now for about 2 years. When I finished my A Level exams at the start of the summer I was left with loads of time and Skinny Jeans was born from that.

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?

The first blog I ever read was Sprinkle of Glitter which is written by the lovely Louise. I had watched her youtube videos and noticed that she had a blog. I loved her blog so much and started to become a regular reader. Through Louise's blog I started to read Zoella's blog and through that it kind of expanded into me reading all the well known bloggers blogs. When I first started to blog and joined bloglovin, the first blogs I followed were What Molly Loves and littlepieceofbeauty. I still read their posts first before I read any others, their posts are so good and I always want to go out and buy whatever they review. 

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product that you bought? Was it worth the hype?

I think it was the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Yes, Yes, Yes it is so worth the hype it gets because it is so bloody AMAZING! 

What are you five favourite things about blogging and being a Beauty Blogger?

1. Other bloggers- Once I had got my blog up and running I joined twitter and through that I have met some lovely bloggers. The blogging community is so lovely and everyone is always giving each other advice on products or blogging in general.
2- Own personal space- I love having my blog to rant when a product hasn't done what it said it would do or to rave about a product that's amazing. Its my own personal space to write about what I want. It also gives my family and friends a break from listening to it, haha.
3- Reading about other products- blogging is a great place to read about new products or products that have been out there for a while but you just haven't seen. I trust the opinion of every blogger I read as they are all such a honest bunch.
4- Excuse to buy millions of beauty products- I have found that being a beauty blogger gives me the excuse of buying 50 lipsticks that are the exact shade from different brands just because I want to try it out and review and compare it. Although this isn't always great for my bank balance, it's amazing for my makeup collection.
5- My blog- I am so proud of my blog and I can't believe that I get any comments or have any followers. To think that I have been able to create something that I am proud of through blogging is the best feeling ever. 

What have you learnt from being a Beauty Blogger? 

I have learnt that if you want to do something then just do it. Whether it's starting up your own blog or writing a post that you want to write then you should just jump in and do it. The beauty blogging community is so lovely and welcoming that if it is something that your sat at home wanting to do, then go ahead and get involved.  

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?

Enjoy every minute of starting out your blog and even if you don't get the response you were hoping for straight away, stick at it and prepare to work hard.

Competition Time (woooooooooo!!!) 


I have been thinking for a while about what I wanted to do for my first big follower milestone. I had thought about doing a giveaway but I just didn't think it felt right to do one at the moment. So I am super sorry if you clicked on this hoping to win some makeup goodies. I will definitely be doing one of those types of giveaways in the future but for now I have something better (I hope!) to offer. For my 50 followers giveaway/ competition I am offering 4 of my followers the chance to have their blog button on my blog for a month after the closing date of the competition. I have wanted to have blog buttons on my blog and I would really like for them to be people who read and enjoy my blog. I think blog buttons look super cute down the side of a blog and I am always clicking on ones that really stand out to me. I am in know way trying to make my blog seem bigger then it actually is and I hope it doesn't come across that way. I would just really love to add something to my blog and I want to add some of my followers to the side of my blog. I know some of my followers might not have blogs of their own and once again i'm sorry if this is restricting to just blog owners. In order to enter you have to be following my blog on bloglovin and google friend connect, however you can also earn additional entries as well. The giveaway will end in a weeks time and I will contact the winners on the 9th or the 10th of September. Enjoy!
