Here is my second Q&A on my personal style blog. You can see the first one I did last year here where I answered a lot of questions you wanted to know but I have got quite a few more to answer since then so that’s why I decided on doing another Q&A post for you all. Let me know if you want to know anything else about me and I will answer your questions for you!
Why do you always wear jeans? Those of you who know me will know that I am the editor and one of the main writers of DenimBlog so denim has been my passion for many years now. I wear jeans a lot mainly because I am obsessed with them and I love them, especially when you find perfect pairs, but also because I do denim reviews every week. I like to plan outfits to wear with the jeans for reviewing but that’s really also my style, I wear jeans literally everyday… Lol. Sometimes I do outfits without denim in though.
I’m sure it’s changed since last time, what are your favourite jeans now? It probably has! I still love all of the jeans that I listed last time but since then I have added Current/Elliott Stiletto in Canteen, 7 For All Mankind Gwenevere in Zuma Sunrise, MiH Breathless in Pinetop, Siwy Alexa shorts in Love Song, Paige Jimmy Jimmy shorts in Tigerlily, M2F Skinnies in Rose, MET Eco-Pelle leather skinnies and of course my Paige & Lorna collaboration jeans! I’m actually probably missing quite a lot of pairs but those are the ones I can think of right now.
What make up do you like to use? Oh I love make up! For my foundation and concealer I use Bare Escentuals. I use the Medium foundation and Summer Bisque concealer. For mascara I use an Avon one, it has a treatment for the eyelashes in one end and a volumising brush on the other end. I actually also love to use the Avon purple eye shadow pencil, I line my lids by my eyelashes with the dark purple and then colour my whole eyelid with the lighter purple. For lips, I have a lot lol! I love my Topshop pink lip gloss stick, my Rimmel lip stain and balm, Lord & Berry actual lip stick in a stick and I have a collection of different coloured lip sticks.
Do you dye your hair? If so, what color? I’ve been looking for the perfect blond color and yours just might be it! I have actually dyed my hair so many times in the past. I have had it blonde, brown, black, plum, deep red, pink streaks, strawberry blonde… I went through a phase of dying it all the time but I kept it black for a while, during my gothy stage (I think we all have one of those at some point lol) and the trouble I went to to make it blonde again was terrible. I had my hair bleached and then it turned orange and was really ruined. It took me years to try and get it back to a reasonable colour and a healthier condition. Now it’s all my natural colour which seems to go lighter blonde in the summer and darker in the winter. I haven’t dyed it for about 4 years or so now? It naturally has lighter areas and darker areas to it. I wouldn’t know what colour to suggest though for a shade like mine. I am flattered that you like my hair colour though!
Are you up to anything fun at the moment? I actually just finished a collaboration with Paige Premium Denim which I did announce to you, but for those of you who missed it, you can see here. That was so much fun! I am hoping to be doing more collaborations in the near future. I also sort of decided to write a book, a romance novel, it’s only at the beginning but I am enjoying writing that. I don’t have anything else set in stone at the moment though, just ideas floating around 🙂
What is your favourite movie? This is really tough since I like so many! If I had to pick one favourite though, it would be Dear John. I love that movie because it’s full of emotions and it’s a beautiful story. For easy watching though I love Letters to Juliet or Wedding Date. I really like the Harry Potters too but I think I prefer the books to the movies. I also like King Arthur style movies.
What are your wardrobe staples? I love this question! Obviously a really good fitting pair of skinny jeans is one, a leather style jacket, stilettos… Actually I might do a post on this! I will save my answers for the post 😀
Do you have a favourite pair of shoes? I actually did a little video for my blogs 1 year Birthday showcasing my favourite shoes! You can see it here. But since then I have added my Kurt Geiger Eleanor nude heels, my Urban Outfitters shoe wedges, my Topshop Sugar mary jane heels and a pair of River Island wedge boots to the list. I think it’s so hard to pick a favourite though, it honestly changes all the time.
Your bag collection has been growing lately, do you have any favourites? Oh gosh I know! I have sort of developed a bag obsession in the past year or so! My two favourites would definitely be my Mulberry Alexa Clutch or my Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie. I love both of those so much! But I do like my coral Topshop bag and the purple velvet box bag from Topshop too.
In what year were you born? I was born in 1988.
Do you read any other fashion/style blogs? If so, which ones? I do! I love reading other blogs! It’s actually one of the first things I do in the morning after checking my emails. The ones I check every day are The Blonde Salad and Cupcakes and Cashmere. Chiara and Emily are my two favourites but I also check blogs like Fashion Toast, Style Scrapbook, Song of Style, Ring My Bell, Cheyenne Meets Chanel and lots more.
What’s your favourite country? I haven’t, as of yet, left the United Kingdom due to a fear of flying but if I had to pick a country, it would most likely be Italy, France or the United States. I love Italy and France for its beauty but the United States has always attracted me, especially Los Angeles.
Could you give some hair tips about growing long hair, types of products you use, and your styling methods? I actually used to have super short hair when I was a bit younger, like boy short, and growing it out took so long! When growing your hair I would recommend that you get regular trims, just the ends, so it keeps it in good condition and healthy. This isn’t something I did as I hate trips to the hairdressers but I wish I did because I got so many split ends and my hair felt rough.
I use Aussie hair products, the miracle moist collection and I love the 3 minute miracle treatment, that really nourishes your hair. I also use Tigi After Party cream when it’s damp to make it soft before drying. For styling, I use GHD straighteners, they work well for me for straightening my hair or curling it. My hair is thick and can be unmanageable but they really keep it under control. I use the Aussie heat protection spray before using them though and I dry my hair on a low heat. I also find that only washing my hair every 2-3 days is much better for it so it doesn’t strip the oils as much.
Do you like spicy food and why? I actually don’t, I have such a high intolerance to anything even remotely spicy. It burns my tongue and I dislike that sensation.
How long have you and your boyfriend been together? Almost 3 and a half years, so quite a long time 🙂
What do you do in your free time? Umm, mostly blogging lol! I love to blog so I don’t really class it as taking up my time. But other than that I love to go shopping, reading, watching TV, go to the cinema, go out for lunch… just the normal general things really. I love spending time with my boyfriend on the weekends too and spending time with animals and nature.
