This week’s Blogger Spotlight goes to this gorgeous lifestyle blogger named Julia. She is twenty-two years old and resides in the beautiful city of London. The interview consisted of focusing on her creative nature and her blog as a whole. Below is the interview I had with Julia as well as the links to her social media and her blog.
Q1: As you started your blog for you to “put your creativity” to use, what other things do you find yourself exceptionally creative at?
I use my creativity in all aspects of life, I think. I’m creative when I do my makeup, cook, bake and even clean. I am always on the lookout for new things to make and I absolutely love everything related to DIY. And looking at the end product knowing that you made it yourself is one of the best feelings in the world. Still, my favourite thing to do is writing – I write not only blog posts, but I tend to write poems and short stories, letters and notes; my mind just comes up with so many ideas that I cannot sit and let it go to waste.
Q2: What is your favorite topic to blog about?
My favourite topic to blog about would be makeup and anything beauty. I’d like to think that I am good at it, but the truth is that I am still learning. I think that’s why it’s my favourite, because through doing my research I can expand my knowledge. So on my blog, you can expect many makeup looks, both invented by me and inspired by celebrities. I also love recreating different hairstyles and I’m planning to include that in my posts as well. My boyfriend says that I’m like an artist when it comes to hair, so I’m positive it’ll turn out alright.
Q3: Do you have any sneak peeks into what we can expect to see from your blog in the future?
I have a really long list of blog posts I’d like to write and I am slowly working on them. I’m really excited because I think they are interesting so hopefully, I’ll get it done and be happy enough with them to post. All I can promise is that I will always be myself and be painfully honest with a healthy dose of humour and sarcasm because that’s what I’m about. As long as my readers enjoy themselves and have a little laugh when reading my blog posts then I know I’m doing something right. So keep your eyes peeled, you won’t regret visiting my blog.
Q4: Who are your top 3 influences for you, as a blogger?
I’d say that the biggest influence for me is the whole blogging community. I read loads of different blogs and learn from them. Nobody would understand what it’s like to blog apart from another blogger. But if I’m lacking inspiration I always ask my friends what they would like to read about, what they struggle with or what would be good to write about and they always have a topic for me that just clicks. And I’ll be a bit cliche now, but Zoella would be my biggest influence when it comes to blogging. I mean, this girl can do everything, can’t she?
Q5: Is there anything you would tell something who is wanting to start a blog of their own?
I would definitely recommend writing a blog. It is such a good hobby/passion to have and most of the time you don’t even have to spend a lot of money on it! Plus, connecting with other bloggers is so much fun. Everyone I have spoken to has been really nice, welcoming and helpful. What is more, for me my blog is a place where I can be fully myself and I don’t have to pretend anything to be liked. If someone enjoys my content – that’s amazing, makes me extremely happy. If someone doesn’t – well, there will be others who will.
