Hullo! So here are a few FAQ's (frequently asked questions) teheh and a bit about me - just incase I don't write enough about me in my normal blog posts!
When did you start your blog?: March 2012, so i'm still such a newbie when it comes to this blogging malarky.
Why did you start your blog?: I originally called it adayinthelifeofems (cringe) because I just wanted to write about what I got up to on a day to day basis, to get into Uni. I had nottthing at all to put on my application so I decided, hey, why not be like, yeah but I have a blog! Then I decided, oooh I like beauty things so let's scrap the hideous name and make something more versatile so that i'm free to write about whatever I like (freedom of speech and all that) (adayinthelifeofems) what was I thinking...
What's fake tan do you use: If I got £1.00 for the amount of times i'm asked this i'd be a millionaire, 95% of the time, it's got to be Xen-tan that i'm wearing. I was converted last year when I realised that it NEVER EVER goes orange. I've reviewed Xen-Tan millions of times, here, here and here! In fact, I think it's one of the first things that I ever reviewed. I have NEVER I repeat NEVER used a sun bed. I never ever would, it's fine if you want to, but personal preference I wouldn't, I also feel like my skin is far too young to use one.
Where are you based? Boo, Leeds. I mean, Leeds is nice, anyone who slates the City clearly hasn't seen the beautiful areas of it (outside of the city centre). I live in a teeny weeny village which you can't really class as Leeds. It's very countrysidey. But I also study at University so I have to leave the country side and live in the city centre 90% of the time now.
What do you want to be when you grow up? I really don't know to be honest...I thought I did, but then I changed my mind!
Can I advertise on your blog? Yes you can! It's best that you email me, email@example.com and we can have a chat.
Do you have a disclosure policy?
Of course I do, it's under the Contact heading if you'd like to read it but it basically states that yes, I am PR friendly, but 1] I will NEVER write a dishonest review, ever. I never have. I'd just get found out anyway, because if someone went and bought it and found that actually, it's pretty rubbish, they'd know I was lying. Lying isn't in my nature, I would rather not write about a product, or, in the past, I have done quite a few negative reviews.
How did your NorthMeetUp Event work?
My NorthMeetUp Event was for anyone, I just wanted to bring everyone together really, the day was for everyone. I do not categorise bloggers as 'big or small' bloggers. Everyone is equal to me so I did it as a first come first served event, the capacity of the room was 50 so I gave the first 50 people who emailed me a place. I then had to unfortunately put some people on a waiting list. As people dropped out though for a variety of reasons, I was able to allow nearly everyone to come, yay!
What do you do at the gym? It's crazy how many people ask me what I do at the gym, but i've always been a really really active person and have done excercise for as long as I can remember. I used to do athletics for the county, gymnastics, ice skating, netball and more. I absolutely love sports. I don't look sporty, but I am such a sporty person. I think this has helped my metabolism. I generally go on a 30 minute run at least twice a week then finish with squats, sit ups and leg weights.
What are your favourite hair extensions? Beauty works every time, i've used nearly every hair ever and trust me, this is the best quality. You can read about it here. I no longer have hair extensions as I'm just going for the au natural look, I would never bleach my own hair, my hairdresser Jade has been dying it for years for me at a salon.
How can I contact you? You can contact me here: firstname.lastname@example.org or for a quicker response just tweet me: @emshelx
