Tag // Confessions of a Blogger


Hello Everyone! I’ve seen this tag around doing its rounds in the blogosphere and really liked it so I thought I’d do a post about it too.  Here we go!


1) How long does it take you to edit/write a post?

It doesn’t taken me that long.  I tend to write up my posts in bulk at the weekend or when I find a moment during the week. I can work long hours and I never know exactly when I am going to finish so this works well for me.  If I didn’t do this I don’t think I’d be able to publish half as many posts as what I do now! I also take my pictures in bulk and edit them so they are ready to go.  It doesn’t take me long to edit my pictures as I tend to do the same thing each time.  I’ve done graphic design as a hobby for at least 10 years so I’m really familiar with the software I use.

2) Are you a spender or saver?

I would say I’m both.  I know that sounds weird so let me explain.  I’m really great at saving, I can easily go without to save those pennies.  I had to do this when saving up to buy a place and believe me it wasn’t easy but I did it for well over a year! At the same time.. I also love shopping and find it pretty easy to spend money.  I tend not to do this all the time, though and I don’t often buy things spontaneously.  I tend to think about it for a while and shop around to find the lowest price.

3) What type of post do you enjoy writing or recording?

I love doing review posts on beauty products as well as tutorial and personal posts.  I’ve been thinking about starting a You Tube Channel too but I haven’t been brave enough yet!

4) Do your friends and family know about your blog/channel?

My family know about my blog and some of my friends. 

5) What Clothing Item do you wear way too much?

This depends on where I am.  I wear a dress almost every day at work. I’m a girly girl and I love the smart/casual look you can get with a dress.  Also, it looks like you’ve made a lot more effort than you really have.. when I get up super early it’s nice just to choose a dress, tights and cardy which is much quicker than picking out an outfit with trousers or a skirt.

When I’m at home I tend to lean more towards leggings and jeans, especially at the moment because the weather is awful and it’s nice to be comfy and cosy!

6) Are you more likely to buy a bag or a pair of shoes?

This one is really easy for me.. shoes!  I confess, I’m a shoeaholic!  Don’t get me wrong, I love bags too but it’s a completely different story when it comes to shoes. 

7) Are the outfits that you post really what you wear in out?

I haven’t posted any of these up yet but I do plan to at some point.  They will always be outfits I wear to go out in.  I’m too lazy to get all dressed up – hair, makeup, outfit etc. to take pics for my blog and not actually go out in it!

8) Who or What inspired you to start a blog or channel?

I came across some beauty videos on You Tube and from there looked at the creators blogs.  I looked at these for quite a while and was inspired most by Fleur de Force and Zoella… I’m sure you all know who they are!  Some of my friends also watched these videos and read the blogs and encouraged me to start my own.. so I did.  I really regret not starting my blog sooner, I really love the whole blogging experience.  From trying out the products, taking the pictures, writing the posts, making friends and reading all the lovely comments.  I really can’t believe how lovely and supportive every one is.  I never would have thought I’d have this many followers and the amount of comments left on my posts as I do.. it makes me so happy.  Thank you everyone!

9)What’s your style mantra? (in other words, what does style mean to you. I think….)

I think style is a way of expressing your personality, individuality and mood.

I tag you all to take part in this! Leave your links below, I’d love to read your posts 🙂

    Writing posts in bulk is such a good idea, sometimes stuff piles up and I can go a week without blogging. I may use any days I have free to write several posts and publish them throughout the week. Simple I know but I just never thought of it!

    I want to start a youtube channel too but I'm really scared as well!

    I love reading tags like these, I did a post like this as a thank you to my fans but didnt know what to write about, wish I had these questions to make it easier. I started a youtube channel with behind the scenes footage of shoots i've done so you should definitely do it 🙂 x

    I'm going to do this later I think! Thanks for the inspiration! Lovely post, I've just started a YouTube channel, scary and a bit weird at the minute but sure ill get used to it. Going to upgrade my canon 30d to the 60d so I can make better videos as I currently have to film on my point and shoot! Check it out on my blog if you want.

    I like hearing about people's lives beyond their blog and how they fit in the time. I do all my posts on the weekend too and at first I found it overwhelming but it becomes so easy with time. I agree with you on dresses, so much easier to come up with an outfit.

    It's really useful! The blogger app is good too because you can publish your posts super quick too!

    Hopefully it won't be too long until we're brave enough to start up our you tube channels!

    this is such an awesome post! I feel like when I first started blogging I was really shy about it and almost embarrassed to tell my friends. Now I love telling people about my blog and I'm much more comfortable with it! I even started making youtube videos a couple months ago ( a whole other realm of beauty discussion). I would totally recommend trying it, I would be your first subscriber 😀 Thanks for following my blog btw!

    Awww thank you, that is really sweet of you!! I was thinking of trying out a video today but put it off.. maybe i'll film one tomorrow and look into the editing side a bit more. What do you use? Also what's your name on youtube? I would love to watch your videos!

    My youtube name is honeylushy! I use iMovie to film and edit…. which doesn't give me the best quality. I'm wanting to switch to using my Canon DSLR to film, but it doesn't have a flip around viewer so I'm going to have to play around with the focus settings, its going to be tricky at first but I'm sure my quality will improve 🙂
