About me


Hello there! Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate it heaps!

 

I'm Emily, a fifteen year-old (November 29th is my birthday) from Australia.
I have had a passion for all things makeup and fashion since the ripe age of 10.
I've been watching YouTube beauty gurus for a very long time now, and my knowledge and creativity comes from them.
My discovery of beauty blogs happened about two years ago. I didn't really feel the need to create a blog myself until June 25th, 2013.



So why should you visit my blog?
I'm a younger girl, so my pocket isn't filled with cash. This means that the majority of my products are affordable. I also pay attention to trends, and spend a lot of my time on YouTube, watching gurus. So I collect an overall general knowledge, and piece the information together to share it with all of you!
My skin is also a little sensitive and acne prone, so all the products that I use is kind to my skin. But I won't just share the good products, i'll warn you of the bad also.

Photography
I do all my own photography, and I'm learning as I go. I use a Canon EOSM, which I can highly recommend.
I make my own backgrounds and sets using items around my home.

Photo editing
All photo editing is done on Picmonkey

Blog Layout
As you can see from the top left hand corner, my background is always either from shabbyblogs.com or thecutestblogontheblock.com but thats where it all stops. Everything else I do my best to design myself. Banners and Signatures are made on picmonkey.com

Blogging schedule
I blog as often as I can. I trying my best to post as much as possible and ensure that my blog has the best and most helpful content. I'm currently entering my winter holidays which means that I will post whenever I have spare time. Unfortunately I have to get through exam block first. You will get at least two posts per week though.

I'm still on the lookout for more great blogs, so for me to check out your blog, simply post a response to one of my topics. I will generally subscribe back to most, if not all, beauty and fashion blogs.

So keep an eye out for more posts!
Lots of love,

    1. OMG I LOVE THOSE PEOPLE TOO! :) like literally every one of the girls you listed are my favourites!

      Try not to over think when trying to write a new topic. It won't come to you unless you get on with your daily life. I get a lot of inspiration from other bloggers as well as youtubers, but a majority of my posts come from thoughts I have as I go through my day-to-day activities.

      If you'd like to discuss this further, I'd be happy to have a chat with you, so be sure to check out my contacts!

      Good luck with your new blog!

      Emily xoxo

    1. Hello Ashlee! Thank you for your lovely comment xx I created my header on Picmonkey by just grabbing a plain white picture off google images. And I can recommend thecutestblogontheblock and shabbyblogs for designs.
