Firstly let me just thank you all, because without you I wouldn’t have reached the staggering high 10000 views. I know it seems not that massive and unnecessary compared to successful bloggers with triple that on a daily monthly basis, but it’s a huge millstone for me and I would love to celebrate it with you all as you guys made it happen!
I know what your thinking – when am I going to give back to you? Well don’t you worry I have a small but sweet giveaway planned for you all some time in the next few months (hopefully, if I’m not too poor after buying a new camera *eek*).
Also just a little blog update, as some of you may know already I’m heading for exam season which means I’ll be doing a lot of revision, therefore I will not have a regular upload time each week but I will always try to get a post up out there (only if it’s done to an acceptable standard!).
I received some lovely comments on Instagram direct which I always appreciate so thank you! I also asked for some questions for this Q&A and I received lots so sorry if yours isn’t mentioned…. anyway roll on the Q&A.
1.Whats your favourite singer/band right now? – @irene_phry
I got so excited when I read this question as it’s a band I’ve recently discovered…THE 1975. Ahhh I’m obsessed with them, they are just so cool and sexy. It really kills me how I managed to fall in love with them after they just finished their tour of England 🙂 great. If you haven’t listened to them before you MUST, they are by far the coolest, most best at what they do band right now.
2. What’s your favourite thing about blogging? – @rosetpics
Being able to express things online, and not give two hoots about who sees it, because it literally could be anyone, brings me so much satisfaction. Also I love the interaction with brands – not the being sent stuff part necessarily (but god that’s definitely a plus!), but the fact they have reached out to you to promote their products and want to work with you is so reassuring.
Also from Amelia (@rosetpics)…
What is the beauty item at the top of your wish list?
Have you tried any Color Pop makeup?
Yes I have tried their matte liquid lipstick, unsure what they are specifically called as the writing’s rubbed off but I do know that they are AMAZING. They feel so soft and non drying on the lips, they are luxury in a bottle, I recommend the shade ‘Midi’.
3. What is your dream job? – @beauyandpizza
I would love to work for Asos in London as I think it would be such a fun and interesting job…searching for new companies to buy from, or even running the communications (social media) would be so cool. I’m interested in going down the fashion business route however I’m not 100% sure what specific part I’d like to go in to yet.
4. What is your dream collaboration (brand) and why? – @chloeplumstead
Wow Chloe, now this is a hard one and I’m worried that as soon as I publish this post I would have thought of a better one. But I’ve racked my brains for a few days now and have decided it would probably be something like Topshop, Asos, Urban Decay OR a travel company where they can swift me away to a white sand beach and feed me exotic food all week, but yeah lets face it none of that is going to happen for at least another 7 years or so!!! But hey! – It’s good to wish because one day…it might just come true (ew cringe sorry).
P.s Thanks for the question Chlo!<3 – go and check out her amazing fashion blog if you haven’t already.
5. Where do you get your fashion inspiration from? – @girlabroadblog
I mostly get my fashion inspiration from other bloggers on Instagram believe it or not, I don’t look at one particular person, I look at lots of different bloggers and pick out bits that I know is my kinda style and bits that will suite me.
Also from Alice (@girlabroadblog)…
What is your favourite brand of makeup?
Ahh this is so hard, but I do really like Too Faced, partly because their packaging is so aesthetically pleasing to look at and touch and their products are really good quality I think.
Do you have any tips for blogger growth?
Of course, be your self, only create content you want to create – there’s no point in putting up a blog post just because you think it will get lots of traffic, it needs to relate to what your blog is about. This leads on to another tip, try and discover what it is you actually want to blog about because when you’ve found it you’ll be on a roll. Take part in Twitter blogger chats, these help with views and twitter followers a lot!
6. Biggest Regret?! – @defineandcontourx
I really struggled to think of anything that relates to regretting something, there are some things that I wish I had approached from a better angle but in all honesty I don’t have any regrets, I see things like this as learning from my mistakes and not holding regrets.
7. What is your favourite chocolate and the coolest place you’ve ever travelled to? – @emzablogs
I love a good Boost Bar or if I’m feeling extra adventurous that day I’ll go for a Crunchie Bar mmmm tasty.
The coolest place I’ve travelled…Dubai was pretty cool, very overwhelming at first as it’s like being on a relaxing beach holiday with a view of huge tall skyscrapers instead of a plain view of the sea. Looking back on it now I realise how much I loved it – it was so different which made it so fun and interesting!
8. What subjects did you take for GCSE’s? – @lifeinkateish
I am still dong my GCSE’s and we unfortunately had to pick 5 extra subjects on top of the Science (I choose double), English and Maths. Heres what I took:
Thats the end of my Q&A, thank you so much to all the people who sent me in questions, sorry if I missed yours, it was simply a case of an accident or already answering the questions in a previous Q&A and I hope my answers were okay! Thank you once again for 10000 views on Life As Tilly Rose, I couldn’t ask for a audience to read my blog. Love you guyyyys xxxxx
