Over the past few weeks, I’ve asked you guys to send me questions through my Instagram page, and now I’ll be answering some of them for you! I hope you enjoy getting to know me a little bit better, and don’t forget to subscribe!
Do you have any siblings?
Yes! One beautiful little sister
What has been your favorite part about becoming a blogger?
My favorite part about becoming a blogger has definitely been the ability to connect with, and support other young bloggers, both through their blogs and through instagram. Starting out, the idea of being so open on the internet was pretty intimidating but being able to bounce ideas off of experienced bloggers has been so helpful!
What do you do to relax when you get stressed out?
When I get stressed out, the first thing I need to do is identify the source of the stress, because the way I cope with it depends entirely on the stressor. If it is a school-related stress (which usually occurs due to an overload of assignments/tests), I like to take a step back and create a schedule because it helps me to visualize what I need to get done, and gives me an idea of when things are due. From there I can prioritize larger assignments etc. I think it’s important to take baby steps for assignments, take a 15 minute break to clear your mind when you can’t figure something out, and drink a lot of water!
On the other hand, if the stress is being caused by something in my personal life. I write it down, or talk the situation through with someone, and I live by The 72 Hour Rule:
If it won’t matter in 72 hours, it never did
What uplifts you if you are having a bad day?
If I’m having a bad day, the first thing I like to do is take a shower, because after a hot shower I always feel completely refreshed. I always light a candle, no matter what season it is- because I find candles really help me to relax. Some days I’ll make some tea and curl up to watch Netflix, and sometimes I’ll just call a friend and catch up because it always cheers me up to reconnect with people I haven’t seen in a while!
How do you get collaborations with brands?
As a blogger and someone who has a presence on social media, collaborating with brands is something I do often because it benefits both of us- I get to grow my brand and they get to have their products promoted. When collaborating with new brands, they usually contact me either through my blog or through Instagram!
What has been the hardest part of being in the beauty industry?
I would say that the hardest part of being in the beauty world is remembering that you really don’t need 100 different products to look or feel beautiful. Because I’m always doing things for the blog or my Instagram page, I find I’m putting on makeup everyday or always doing something to improve my appearance- but days where wear no makeup and I just let my skin breathe are when I feel the best.
Favorite place to shop?
My favorite places to shop definitely depend on what I’m searching for.
For clothes, I would say Garage, Forever 21, and believe it or not, Sears! I love shopping there because the prices are great and they have so many great brands! For makeup, I would have to say Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart, because they both carry different brands and different products! For home decor, I would say both Winners and Indigo, because there’s just so many hidden gems there.
Thanks to everyone who submitted questions both through Instagram and through the Contact form on my page! Unfortunately, I couldn’t answer all of the questions but maybe I’ll do a part 2!
