Thank you sooo much chums for all your incredibly encouraging comments and compliments on yesterdays post; The Blog Makeover: A New Look for Confetti & Curves. I really didn’t expect to come home to such a wave of cheery words; though I don’t know why as you lot are always so darn supportive! In fact, someone asked me a few days ago what I enjoyed most about beauty blogging (apart from the blatantly obvious of reviewing make-up by the truck load) the one thing that sticks out by far is the network of support. Even the gloomiest of days can be turned into such a sunny one by just a few supportive words. So once again, a huge thank you for taking the time to stop by, comment, like, share & just generally spread some virtual love ❤
Talking of positivity and blog buddies, I have the lovely Carrie from Carrie’s Beauty Pouch joining me on the virtual sofa today for a quick chatter about behind the scenes of her aptly named beauty blog. As I’m sure you’ve already figured out, you can expect a online haven filled with lashings of cosmetic news & reviews over at Carrie’s blog, as she’s a huge fan of both Korean and American cultures, as well as their beauty products! She’s also in the process of training to become an MUA so expect lots of fun tutorials, tips and reviews! If that sounds like your kind of hangout then why not pop over, hit that follow button and say a huge hello. I’m pretty sure you’ll adore it too!
In only 5 words describe what readers can expect from your blog:
Makeup, Skincare, Tutorials, Reviews, Tips/Tricks.
What inspired you to start blogging?
It hasn’t been a while since I started doing skincare. Ever since then, I would always read reviews online before buying any beauty products. And I was inspired by beauty bloggers and wanted to create my own blog to help you girls out there. 😉
Tell us about your blog name… what made you decide on it?
My name is Carrie and I wanted my blog name to be cute and girly. The reason why I included “beauty” is because I will be sharing about not only make-up by also skincare. I was going to name it “vanity” instead of “pouch” because you can’t really fit every beauty products you have in a pouch. But still I find the word “pouch” really cute xD I don’t why but it sounds cute to me. So, my sister and I came up with the name “Carrie’s beautypouch”.
