Beauty Blogger Tag

Good Afternoon Dolls!
(Love a cheeky trout pout ;))
I saw this tag on Chloe's blog (

) and decided to give it a whirl! I thought it would be quite good to show you guys what blogging means to me and why I got into it! I also love getting feedback from all you beautiful girls whenever I do a tag post!

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I started blogging in February, but didn't properly get into the swing of it until August as I had to take a break from it after February because I had all my uni exams, started a new job and I graduated. So I was a little busy bee for those few months! I decided to start blogging as I am absolutely obsessed with all things girly! I love makeup, fashion and décor. I got the inspiration from YouTube beauty gurus, I've been watching them for quite a while and love what they do. I found that they all had blogs and so I thought it would be fun for me to do as I don't have the confidence to do YouTube! I love sharing beauty tips and tricks with my friends so I thought it would be great to do via blogging. I also thought it would be a good opportunity to make new friends :)

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
Probably Zoella's and Elle & Blair Fowlers old blog, not to mention Lauren Conrad's! Lauren's is just pure perfection!

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product that you bought? Was it worth the hype?
I've not actually done this yet! I need to though!

What are your five favourite things about blogging and being a Beauty Blogger?
1. Writing posts - I used to thoroughly enjoy writing when I was younger and being able to write about what I love is really a magical experience : )
2. Reviewing products - Although I haven't actually received any products from company's yet, I really enjoy reviewing my own products that I have purchased. It makes me really evaluate the product and appreciate it more.
3. Meeting new people - I love following new blogs and following bloggers on twitter. Everyone is so lovely and I really hope to make some good friends through blogging!
4. Reading comments - I love the feedback I get from everyone, its such a nice feeling to have someone you've never met read your blog and actually like it enough to tell you they like it!
5. Reading other blogs - I love reading other peoples blogs - their style of writing, what they like to review, I find them all really inspiring.

What have you learnt from being a Beauty Blogger? 
As I am new to the game, I haven't had the opportunity to learn an extreme amount yet! But so far, I've learnt that there are some really lovely bloggers out there and that everyone is entitled to their own opinion - which is why I love reviews so much! I love reading peoples reviews on products that don't necessarily appeal to me. They always somehow manage to win me over!

Have you changed anything since becoming a Beauty Blogger? 
I've changed the name of my blog as I thought 'Lucy Loves...' sounds more appealing than L.A.X (Lucy Amanda X). Think my old name sounded like something you would use for constipation ha ha!

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out? 
Keep on going! I know at first it can be a bit daunting when you see that other people have thousands of followers and you have zero! It makes you think that what you're writing just isn't that appealing. That's not the case at all! I like to look at my blog as a baby! Obviously a baby isn't going to have tonnes of friends at first, but after it develops it will gain some genuine friends! : )

What are your top 5 makeup brands?
