Thankful For Blogger Friends Tag!

Hi Guys,

So I was tagged to do this post a while back from one of my good friends on here Kate (if you haunt checked out her blog already you have to, its amazing!). So I thought now would be a good time to give it a go.

ABOUT YOUR BLOG (Please be specific in your answers, so we can all learn something!):

  1. How long have you been blogging? I started blogging in May 2013.
  2. Are there any bloggers who helped you out/encouraged you when you first started your blog?  Kate actually was really awesome when I started blogging and turns out we actually live in the same city, studying at the same uni and also doing the same accounting degree so what a small world huh!
  3. What Social Media has given you the most traffic to your blog?  Is there a platform that you don’t use? Uhmm not sure I would get much traffic from social media as I don’t really have any social media accounts specifically for my blog. Just have my personal twitter and instagram accounts linked to my page. Should probably start up a dedicated facebook and instagram now I think about it.
  4. How often do you post?  Do you have a regular schedule? I try to post as often as I can but I have been a bit slack lately due to being on holidays. But I range from once a day to once every week.
  5. Where do you blog? I’m not going to lie I usually blog at work during my lunch breaks. I have a really good set up at work with dual screens so its easy and its something fun to do while I’m bored over lunch.
  6. What camera do you use?  What photo editing software do you use? I generally use my iPhone/iPod its pretty good for photos and then I will edit them with pic stitch/instagram.
  7. How did you come up with your blog name? My blog name is just a nickname of mine – nothing fancy. I wish I had of come up with something more creative now though haha.
  8. Do you do any regular “series” posts on your blog? I don’t actually. I post a few OOTD and FOTD but nothing “regular”.
  9. What draws you to a blog? A nice layout, well picked font style and good quality images and content. Something that’s appealing to the eye and not all over the shop. Simple and elegant.
  10. What turns you off of a blog? Crazy coloured backgrounds and tiny font. I am fairly blind so I like a decent sized font.
  11. How many blogs do you subscribe to? Are they all beauty related? I follow over 100 I reckon. I like to follow back the people who have put in the effort to follow me. Plus I follow a lot of cooking blogs too cause that’s something I am really passionate about, but mostly beauty blogs.
  12. When do you generally read blogs?  At lunch time or while I am on the bus on the way to work.
  13. What is your favorite type of post, and why? I love when girls do OOTD’s. I love to see how other people style themselves. I love reviews and I love reading healthy recipes.
  14. What is your least favorite type of post, and why? Nothing. I love reading what other people have to say. People don’t generally make a blog if they don’t believe they have something worth writing about so I generally give everything a good look. Not going to like, I don’t like long-winded posts unless they are super interesting as I tend to lose focus pretty fast haha.


NOW ABOUT YOU!!  (If any are any you prefer not to answer, just skip!):

  1. Where do you live? Tell us a bit about your city! I live in Brisbane, Australia. In the suburbs. About a 10-14 minute drive from the city.
  2. What about your home? Its awesome. Very homely. We have a pool and a big yard. We got our house renovated recently so nice new tiles and a new kitchen.
  3. Do you have a “day job”? I work full-time as an undergraduate accountant (which is the carrier I am studying towards) in a mining and construction company. So not your typical accounting firm which is good as I get to keep it interesting.
  4. How tall are you? About 160-165cm. Not sure exactly, wish I was taller though. Don’t get me wrong, being short is good but when it comes to being in big crowds I would love to be able to see more.
  5. Do you have siblings? Yes, two sisters. One older, one younger.
  6. 3 words to describe yourself.  Loud. Caring. Hard-working. I don’t know haha. First three words that came to my head.
  7. Who is your style icon, and why? Not going to lie, probably my sister. She has an amazing fashion sense so I always pic up style ideas from her. Don’t really have an icon. Just go with whatever looks good and I am comfortable in.
  8. 3 favourite bands/musiciansChris Brown, Beyonce, Jessica Mauboy. Favourites I have had for the longest time although I have quite a few new favourites.
  9. 3 random/weird facts about you. I’m allergic to dust. I am claustrophobic. I have visited 5 counties other than Australia.
