Hey Beauty Buddies…
Happy Thursday my little cosmetic cravers! Is everyone enjoying the week so far? Anyone else noticed how winter has just suddenly landed on our doorsteps? Gee it has been teeth-chatteringly cold here the past few days – thermals & winter woolies are now fully operational!! However the colder weather always puts me in the mood for Christmas markets & seasonal fayres. Will you be attending any near you? What activities do you enjoy most this time of the year? (keep it clean please ladies!!! *aahh hmm*) 😀
However, as you mull over my questions of the day, it’s time to meet yet another lovely lady of the blogisphere as Katie from Maybee Beauty graces our virtual sofa of sassiness this chilly November morning. Apart from having THEE cutest little blog logo, this fabulous online haven is a virtual treasure trove filled with bedazzling beauty news & reviews that will undoubtedly leaving you scrolling for more. So if you’re not already familiar with Katie’s blog then get yourself over & check it out pronto – I’m pretty sure you’ll love it every bit as much as I do!
So enough chatter from me; grab a freshly-filled cup of something yummy & let’s get started…
In only 5 words describe what readers can expect from your blog:
Honesty, Beauty, Fashion, Fun, Junkie!
What inspired you to start blogging?
My love of beauty mainly and the blogging community that makes you feel part of a family and that your weird obsessions and beauty junkie habits are accepted and celebrated. I guess I wanted to share this massive passion I have as well as being able to have an impact and also help others or give advice on products.
Tell us about your blog name… what made you decide on it?
My last name is Bernstein and my nickname at uni was Bernie Bee and also my middle name and my birth month is May. When I put them together they just seemed to fit together so well!
Do you ever suffer from Blogger’s Block & if so how do you overcome it?
I do but my main way of overcoming it is to plan. I keep a notebook in my handbag and when I have ideas I write them down. This helps when I do suffer cause I just pick a topic off the list when I’m struggling for inspiration.
What’s your favourite post to date?
Its got to be my first every post which was my makeup storage and collection. I love this because the pictures were taken on my phone and it reminds me of where I started and I remember how excited I was when I first uploaded it.

Girly with an edge. I love a nice girly dress but then chuck some really funky accessories that give the look an edge.
