I have a holiday treat for you today! Today’s post is in collaboration with simplybful, make sure you check out her blog and give her a follow!
We decided to create an interview with 10 questions to ask one another, and get to know each other better! And what better way, than to share with all of you wonderful readers?!
Make sure you check out simplybful‘s blog to see my answers to these same questions!
Let’s get started:
1. Hi! Please introduce yourself and let the readers know what your blog is all about.
Heya! I am Soumi , mainly a beauty & a lifestyle blogger from India. Initially my blog was started as a means to share my views on any beauty product I used, for eczema suffering people. Being a sufferer myself, I want to help others who share the same fate but still have the craze for makeup and fashion. I migrated my blog recently to incorporate guest posts and haul posts.
2. How did you get started blogging, and what motivates you to keep going?
As I said, I want to help other eczema sufferers, so I started my blog world with this in mind. Also, I am a huge believer in organic and herbal beauty. I saw a dearth in bloggers who focus on this, so I took baby steps in this direction to bring out the interest of readers in organic beauty, which is more skin friendly and devoid of harsh chemicals.
3. In 3 words, describe your style:
Classy, Sporty, traditional (Poles apart, right?)
4. Where do you see yourself/your blog in the next 6 months to a year (future of your blog)?
I believe my blog will get more responses from readers as I want to know them more and their needs. Also, I may get the opportunity to meet new readers and bring forth start-up new beauty brands specially those, who have organic or herbal connections.
5. Is there any advice you can give to anyone out there who may want to get into blogging?
Get started!!You have something to say, share it with the World. Don’t worry about what people will say or whether your blog will be famous. Just focus on quality of your posts and be interactive with your followers.
6. If you are marooned on an island, what is one product you can’t live without?
My sunscreen! Need it to survive till my rescue comes. 😀
7. Choose one product which you use in many ways.
Brown lip liner! Perfect for lining your lips or using as a lipstick, lining your eyes for natural look and filling your brows.
8. How would your friends/ other bloggers describe you?
They feel I am honest in my approach to the views I share. Also, they like that I prefer drugstore and herbal brands. I was told that I am brave as I talk about my skin problems openly and don’t shy away from posting pictures on the same.
9. Who are your top three favorite bloggers and why?
I love Shreya Jain. She has a Youtube channel and a blog. Link is given below. She provides the most honest reviews ever and gives easy makeup tutorials. I love the fact that she is funny and keeps the videos interesting by not editing the bloopers. Youtube & Blog
You must have heard of Michelle Phan. So I am not introducing her. 😛 I love her videos as she uses products which have just entered the market thereby helping so many brands. Her videos have amazing music background and have a dreamy ambiance to them. Also she does these ‘Pillow talks’ where she discusses day to day issues.Blog & Youtube
Another blogger I like is Debasree Banerjee. She is a bong like me. So I am biased.(Just kidding). 😀 Her videos are amazing because she is honest in her reviews, gives easy tutorials and the quality of videos is great. She does videos which discuss about feminine issues and so on.Youtube & Blog
10. What are the things you want to explore/ do in blogging which you haven’t done so far.
I would love to collaborate with more brands who deal in organic beauty. Also I would love to discuss more about eczema, which not much people in India are aware of. I am going to introduce more makeup tutorials in my blog and incorporate other facets of life, like poetry, travel posts etc.
That’s all folks! Make sure to check out simplybful‘s blog to see how i answered these questions as well!
Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday weekend!
