Thank you so much to the gorgeous Lynda (go check out her blog here! http://www.waldorf-dreams.com/) for tagging me in the Liebster Award Tag. I was asked 11 questions then I tag 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions and it carries on! I think this is a fantastic idea to discover new blogs and get to know other bloggers and influencers. So thank you again 🙂
Here are my 11 questions!
Who is your favourite blogger/influencer?
My favourite blogger/influencer has to be Zoella. I’ve been watching her videos for years and she is one of the reasons why I started my blog!
What is your favourite social media platform? And what do you like most about it?
My favourite social media platform would have to be Twitter. I find it the easiest to use for interacting with other bloggers and also to find new bloggers and blogs. Instagram comes a close second but due to the algorithm its becoming harder to use.
How/why did you start blogging?
I started because my fiancée said I needed a hobby haha! But seriously, I’ve been wanting to set up a blog for years but just never had the confidence until someone turned around to me and said ‘just do it, what do you have to lose?’ so I did! I never realised how much the blogging community were inviting and they are just so lovely!
If you could create a product or brand what would it be?
I would love to create my own bath products as I LOVE a bath! There’s something so nice about coming home after a long day and jumping into a nice hot bath with a few of your favourite products so if I was to ever create a product it would definitely be bath stuff.
How did you come up with the name for your blog?
The name for my blog is a mixture between where I live and what I love. Highland because I live up in the highlands of Scotland (beautiful here btw!) and beauty because I looooove buying beauty products from make up to bath stuff!
What is the one thing you dislike about blogging?
It has to be when people follow you, you then follow them back and then they unfollow you. That aint how I work, as soon as I click on that someone has unfollowed me I do the same. I’m here to support other bloggers and I would like to hope people in the blogging community are the same.
What is the best thing to happen to your blog so far?
As of yet I’m yet to be given any really exciting opportunities but I think just getting views on my blog so far is a huge achievement!
If there was one thing you could change in the blogging industry what would it be and why?
To be honest, the main thing I would change is for people to realise not everyone is from London, I’ve been wanting to attend a bloggers meet up for a while now and they all seem to be held in London which isn’t suitable for me at all! It’s an 9/10 hour drive and a lot of expense *sad face!*
What keeps you following and brings you back to blogs?
Because I am a beauty blogger myself I love to follow other beauty/make up bloggers in the industry and the main thing that keeps me following is good material. If there is a review on a certain product I am thinking of buying and the review is good and thorough then I will be more inclined to buy it and come back to read more reviews on products.
What advice would you give to new bloggers?
Just go for it! Don’t let anything or anyone hold you back 🙂
What would be your dream blogger/press trip? Where would you go and what would you blog about?
A trip anywhere would be nice, and I would blog my whole experience.
