Thank you so much to the lovely bexfaye for the nomination. I love Rebecca’s blog, especially her photography. Such beautiful photos. Go have a look!

 How My Blog Started

I had the idea of starting a blog around a year ago as I’ve always had a love of anything related to beauty and wanted to share my thoughts! I actually set up my WordPress account in October 2015 but with one thing and another I didn’t start blogging properly until just before Christmas 2016 so I’ve only been going a few months but I absolutely love it! I’ve recently moved my blog over to gone Self-hosted and given it a new look with a Pipdig theme. It’s taken a while to sort through all the little niggles I’ve had with setting it up but now it’s done I’m so happy with the way it looks. It’s just meant I’ve not been so active with all my favourite bloggers that I used to see in the reader as with there isn’t a reader.

Tips/Advice For New Bloggers

Don’t get disheartened when your follower count is slow! Don’t take it personally. Blogs take time to establish and for people to recognise your name in the sea of millions of others. However, it’s great when an influential blogger does respond or message you!! Be friendly and interact! You never know what might happen.

That’s a great thing but literally, everyone has been nominated and I don’t know who I should pick! so if you’re reading this and you haven’t been nominated yet then you go ahead and accept the nomination from me!

    Yes, it’s difficult knowing who to pick plus it has to really be a ‘new’ blogger! Just do what you think is best. That’s what I did. ?
