Behind The Blog featuring Emma Nicole Beauty…

Emma Nicole Beauty

Hey Beauty Buddies…

Firstly a huge thank you to all who checked out yesterday’s post Creating A Media Kit For Your Beauty Blog, Rest assured, if you’re in the beginning stages of creating your own and feeling a tad nervy about the process you’re not alone. Surprisingly, my inbox was buzzing last night with requests for the Full Size PDF Sample I’ve put together, which is simply just a basic guide for design & layout reference. So if you think that could be of use to you too then pop over and check out the post, it has all the info enclosed to help you create your very own media kit! *energetic air punch* 😀

However it’s time again to prep the virtual sofa for our first blogger of the week, as we have the lovely Emma from Emma Nicole Beauty joining us this morning for a quick chatter about behind the scenes of her fabulous beauty blog. Between nails, skincare, fashion, hair, makeup, hauls, monthly favs… the list goes on… there really is something to keep us all entertained as the charming Dublin based Emma brings us her news and reviews on a range of fabulous beauty goodies.

So grab that cuppa & make yourself comfy as we take a peek Behind The Blog

.

In only 5 words describe what readers can expect from your blog:

All things beauty & fashion related

.

What inspired you to start blogging?

It was a pretty spur of the moment decision. I have always loved reading other peoples blogs and honestly never really thought anyone would be interested in reading anything I wrote. I don’t know what made me start but as soon as I did I was hooked and know I can’t see myself not doing it.

.

Tell us about your blog name… what made you decide on it?

I recently changed my blog name, it’s not very exciting just my name and what I love most which is ‘beauty’. I’ve always really liked my name so why not put it to good use 🙂

.

Do you ever suffer from Blogger’s Block & if so how do you overcome it?

Yes all the time. I think the best way to overcome this is to keep a list of new ideas, no matter what time of the day or where I am if something pops into my head I make a note of it on my phone and then when I comes to writing a post if I need ideas I just check my list to get inspiration.

.

What’s your favourite post to date?

I really enjoyed doing the review of the Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette, it was probably the most excited I’ve been to write a post and take the photos but I really do enjoy writing all of my blog posts 🙂

Describe your everyday clothes style:

Simple, Neutral colours and comfy. I try to keep up with trends for each season but really comfort comes first 🙂 My favourite store is River Island and if I could only shop in one store it would definitely be there.

How do you like to relax & unwind after a stressful day?

Watching TV is my favourite thing to do but theres also nothing better than reading a good book 🙂

.

Describe your ideal Saturday night:

Pretty much just what I said above, sitting in my PJs watching TV and eating lots of junk food 🙂

.

What do you do to relax?

If I say watch TV again does that make me addicted to TV 🙂

.

Everyone has their bad habits, what’s yours?

Beauty related would definitely not cleaning my make up brushes often enough

.

What’s your most cherished childhood memory?

Going to Lapland to see Santa when I was 8. It was honestly the most magical day and even though I’m 21 now I’d love to go back 🙂

.

What was your favourite school subject?

I always loved accounting, I think my slightly ocd brain appreciated when everything balanced

.

What’s your dream job?

I honestly don’t know, if I can find something that makes me excited to go into work everyday that’s all I can ask for

.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I would love to have my own apartment and ideally it would be in London but mainly I would like to have a good job that I’m happy in (a nice man wouldn’t hurt either 🙂 )

.

What top 5 things are on your bucket list?

Dive with Sharks

SkyDive

Go on Safari

Travel around the US

See the northern lights

.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

Getting into the college I wanted was something I worked really hard for and was so excited when it all paid off but I’m also really proud of myself for having the courage to start my blog! I never would have thought this time last year that I would have enjoyed blogging this much but I am really proud of what I’ve produced so far

.

Who inspires you?

Other bloggers, nothing inspires me to improve my blog more than reading other peoples amazing blogs, seeing how talented others are at writing and photography is definitely what inspires me to continue with my blog

.

What top tips would you give to someone who is thinking of starting their own blog?

The only piece of advice I would give is to make your blog what you want it to be! Write about what you want to write about and write it in whatever way you want. If you don’t do it for you you won’t enjoy it, and if you don’t enjoy it I don’t think people enjoy reading it as much. I definitely think it translates into peoples blogs when they really enjoy what they do.
