Here are my answers to Zoe's questions:
Why did you start blogging?
Only last year looking for products to cover my dark circles I discovered the ocean of beauty blogs and Youtube channels and I was hooked instantly. I spent way too many hours reading blogs and watching Youtube videos. As I always was interested in beauty industry and love discovering new skincare and make up products I thought what a better way to let my passion thrive than joining the beauty blogging community and express my views and share my experience with other beauty obsessed girls. My closest friends are not too crazy about another face cream or eyeshadow so it's great to have a place where I can ramble about all those things without feeling guilty or not understood.
What is your favourite type of perfume?
It depends really on the season. I prefer floral, lighter scents for Spring and Summer, like DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom or Marc Jacobs Daisy and warmer, musky, sensual scents for Autumn and Winter, like Armani Code. There are also my absolute favourite: Calvin Klein Eternity and Dior J'adore that I wear whatever the weather. In general I like many different fragrances apart from heavy oriental ones and those with very detectable vanilla notes.
What is your favourite brand and why?
I don't have a favourite brand as I like to try different things and I think that every brand has hits and misses so can't choose just one.
How long do you really take to get ready in the mornings?
It depends if my husband is at home:) If he is not working, on weekends, then I can take as much time as I need to get ready but on weekdays normally everything has to be as quick as possible so I'd say I need half an hour to take a shower, get dressed and put some basic make up on my face.
What is your favourite film?
There are many movies I love but if I have to choose just one it has to be "Indecent Proposal" with Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson as I watched it like hundred times and every time I enjoy it equally.
How do you plan your blog posts?
I haven't got quite yet a proper routine but I try to get some ideas for the whole coming week, write them down and then create the posts when I find the time. The ideas come from my everyday skincare or make up routine or something I read. I wish I had more time on hands to write all the posts I'm thinking of.
Would you rather lose your ability to talk or your ability to read?
That's a difficult question, Zoe;) I think I'd prefer to loose the ability to talk as I can't imagine my life without reading, books, blogs, anything!
How would you describe your blog to somebody in person if you only had 5 seconds to tell them?
It's a blog about purse friendly beauty products suitable for women in their thirties.
If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
Never thought about it but probably I'd choose to be a horse as they are just beautiful and strong.
What do you think is the best thing about blogging?
For me the best thing about blogging is being part of this community, being able to talk to people with similar interests and having a good excuse to indulge myself in more beauty products:)
