Wednesday's weekly blogger #13

Hello my lovelies!

This week I present you one of the loveliest and sassiest (is that even a word?) bloggers I know. She is so so wonderful and I love her lots - I hope you enjoy her blog :)

1) What’s your blog name and URL?  
Name: My Curves and Lashes


2) How did you come up with your blog name? 

I actually came up with my blog name with my partner! insert  "WTF" icon here. I needed some catchy, but not too focused on one topic. As a plus-sized, curvaceous mama, I decided to add that into my name somehow, this allow readers to know my fashion posts will also be open to plus-size women. And for my enthusiasm on all-things-beauty, I have always been a falsies fiend. Hence, the blog name My Curves and Lashes.

3) What is your blog about?
My name basically says it all. Fashion (for all sizes) and beauty. Also, as a first-time mother, I have also been adding a few lifestyle here-and-there posts on my blog. Get ready for some random cuteness overload and mommy on-a-budget hauls and mommy-on-the-go routines. 

4) What inspired you to start blogging?  
I am a very ambitious person. I Love to shop online, browsing various sites:  beauty, fashion, home-stuff, you name it!
I am a victim of social media platforms. yup! I'm a tweeter, an instagrammer, a Bloglover, a Youtube subscriber, a Pinterester, and a Tumblr member.
I just get very bored easily...
Apart from being a mother to a crazy one-year old diva. I am your average tenant living in North London - I'm not ashamed to say it as I believe many women can connect with me. I am just your average house-wife, cooking, cleaning, taking my child to children  centers etc.
Most bloggers have such extravagant homes, they all look so spic 'n' span, and don't get me started on their wardrobe! My approach is totally different. I blog products that EVERYONE can afford, not everyone can splash on expensive luxuries. Oh how I wish... I guess I just needed a release, a "ME-TIME", an escape from the stresses of being a mum. Before I had my child, Neveah, I was working in retail as a Store Top Level training to be a Visual Merchandiser at a known Arcadia Brand called EVANS -a plus-size clothing company based in the UK, now worldwide. I loved working in retail and helping others with their inner-confidence and showing them that curvy women can be fashionable too. I was the 'Shape Adviser' for our store. My job was to measure their body and explain what their body shape was, and how they could enhance their curves and hide their flaws. I was lucky to have met many wonderful women in the visual merchandising team and also the creative side. From working as a part-timer at the age of sixteen, working my way up as a Top Level Management Team Member by the age of twenty - I was definitely inspired by fashion. I didn't want to lose that creativity I oh-so love to do, so I decided to start a blog about loving your curves and fluttering your lashes no matter what size you are, hence the name - My Curves and Lashes. Anyone, any size can be fashionable.
5) Who is your favourite blogger to read?

It has got to be...
Also known for her youtube video, UGLYFACEOFBEAUTY, She definitely knows how to keep viewers/readers entertained. Such a bubbly personality and a great sense of style! She is adorable and very laid back; you can tell she is such a down to earth kinda gal. Her strength to stay positive when times are hard just makes you love her even more. She is a beautiful young woman pursuing her career as a beauty/fashion blogger and inspiring everyone with her story. I highly recommend!

6) What is your favourite post you have written on your blog?

How To Determine a Fake Mac Lipstick - I love helping other beauty lovers out there but I absolutely hate people who take advantage of other peoples interests. Therefore, I have posted a way to help the beauty community. The feedback on tat particular post was definitely rewarding :)
7) What is your favourite thing about blogging?
Blogging is my online social journal where I can basically write about anything. It's mine. My space. My words. My interests and a glimpse of my life. Sharing my interests with other bloggers keeps me socialised; a very hard thing to balance when you're a mother.

Additional Halloween questions!

9) What is your favourite Halloween fancy dress costume?
I was actually a geisha a few years ago and a pregnant vamp last year! HAHA -- it's definitely gotta be 
the pregnant sexy all-in-black vampire! I just love the seductive, sultry, smokey eyes, don't you?

10) What is your favourite trick or treat/halloween party memory?

Concluding from the top answer, the pregnant vamp was definitely fun! I also had so many questions regarding the "costume-bump" yes it was real! and yes you can touch it. All night my boyfriend was asking if I was ok or if I needed to go home etc. Bless his cotton socks. We ended up being the last few in the party! 

A big thank you and a massive hug to Jessica for allowing me to answer her Wednesday Weekly Blogger Series! She is definitely a down-to-earth blogger. Her personality is so bubbly and loveable and I am happy to have met her through the wonderful world of Twitter LOL!
