5) Enjoy it!
1. Did other blogs convince you to start up your own?
Yes, defiantly, totally!  I had heard about blogs before but never really thought i had anything to say and that you had to be famous to write them, i was totally wrong. My blog helps me to get my ideas and opinions out as well as giving me something to do. Zoe (at Zoella) was the first blog i got into. I watched a few of her Youtube videos and then found out she had a blog. After that i found out about Louise (at Sprinkle of Glitter) and Tanya Burr and Fleur De Force and then it just went on from there. I liked how they just said what they feel.
2. Have you joined a site because someone else in the blogosphere did?
Yep, i joined Tumblr, Bloglovin', Picmonkey and Wanelo. Tumblr i joined because most people had a tumblr button on their blog and i love photography too. I emailed a lovely blogger to ask how she made her collages and she told me about picmonkey. I joined wanelo after seeing it on another blog and most people have a Bloglovin' account.
3. Is there a tip/regime you've gotten from the internet that you now use?
To wait until things go on sale before buying them and to question myself before i buy something so i know if i really want it. Not to hold down my eyelash curlers but the press a little.

4. If your favourite YouTube/Blogger personality likes a product, will that make you buy it?
It depends on if they have the same hair type, skin type, nail type and so on. I will never buy anything too expensive and i also like to look at more reviews and not just one so.
5. What do you look for in a blog that makes you want to follow?
Because pictures are normally the first thing when you click on a blog, i look that they aren't too dark and blurry (obviously if they don't have a good camera that's fine, but if the camera has been moved before it had finished taking a picture). And the blog is friendly and doesn't look like it will give me a virus or is rude. I also want it to be easy for me to look around and the posts are helpful or interesting.
6. Have you ever been decieved by a product that you ordered online? (e.g you thought it would be pink but it was coral)
A jumper looking like it isn't itchy and looks soft but when you try it on it feels scratchy and itchy. Also a coat looking like it is tucked in at the waist but actually isn't. 
7. Have promo pictures and press releases given you the impression that a product will be better than it is?
Defiantly! Mascara adverts always say that they have no clumps and look like falsies. Hair dye adverts also say that they stay on for longer then they do and will look like "salon quality"!
8. Is there a product you could give a 'cult' status for being so good that you discovered through the Internet?
O.P.I nail polish. I had heard about it before but had never tried it and thought it was really expensive. I used it at a friends house and thought that the colour was exactly what it looked like in the bottle and the brush was amazing.  
9. Is there a product you have tried and hated, but others have loved?
Bert's bees lip balm. I really hate this product because it makes my lips really dry and then they start to sting.
10. Is there a Blogger/YouTuber that influences your fashion style? If so, who?
Tavi Gevinson, i love how her outfits are so out there but totally work and she doesn't care what people think. My style is really boring at the moment because i don't have any nice winter clothes.
11. Is there a Blogger/Youtuber that influences your attitude each day/lifestyle?
Zoe, Louise, Marcus, Alfie, Joe,Jack and Finn, Tanya, Jim, Casper and all of them. They just live there life with huge smiles on their faces and always try and make everything funny. Also Zoe suffers from anxiety and panic attacks but she still goes on planes and to party's.  
12. How much time do you spend on the Internet daily?
It really depends what i am doing that day, so if i am ill or am feeling lazy i will be on it a lot but if i am going out then very little.
