Wednesday's weekly blogger #20

Hello my lovelies!

This week we have another beauty and lifestyle blogger. I just can't get enough of these ladies! Enjoy :) 

1) What’s your blog name and URL?   
Hey, my name is Yasmina and I am the writer behind The July Journal. You can find my blog at

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


I've written blogs before but hated the name. I didn't want it to include my actual name but still wanted to keep it quite general. I thought of my blog as being a bit of a diary and that's where the Journal came in. July is the month I am born in so 'The July Journal' just seemed right! 

3) What is your blog about?
I tend to write about beauty and lifestyle. I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with nail polish and lipstick so you will find a lot of that on my blog. I love writing beauty reviews and what I get up to when I go on days out with the other half. I am hoping to expand out into fashion when I feel a bit more confident with my body and how I look.

4) What inspired you to start blogging?  


I would say Company Magazine inspired me to start writing my blog as well as reading some amazing blogs when I was at school. I found the whole thing inspiring and different to reading magazines and something which I could get involved in.

5) Who is your favourite blogger to read?

There's so many which I love to read but my faves are definitely Suzie from Hello October, Faye from Faye's Fix, Helen from The Love Cats Inc and Amy from The Girl in the Bowler Hat. 

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

I am just over half way through blogmas where I am blogging everyday of this month. It is getting me so excited for Christmas. I think my favourites are my London posts when me and Phill went on our first little holiday together earlier this year.
7) What is your favourite thing about blogging?

Being able to interact with different people. I love how the love for the same thing can bring so many people together!

8) Please leave any other social network links


9) What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

The Christmas festivities with family and friends of course! It's the time when everyone is happy and realise they have each other and what they really have.
10) What is your favourite memory from Christmas?

I can always remember putting out the whiskey, cookies and carrots for Santa and the reindeer with my granddad every year. 

11) What is the best Christmas present you have ever received and why?  
This teddy bear which more Grandma gave me the year before she past away. It literally went on holiday with me and slept in the same bed every night till I was a teenager. I still have it now in the corner of my room.

12) What are your New Year's resolutions?

Hopefully going to blog everyday and just try to improve my blog to the best of what I can. Try and meet more bloggers. I really want to travel more this year as well.  

If you want to get involved in this series then please tweet me a message (@jesstasticsblog) or leave a blog post comment with your email address and I will put you into a slot. I am accepting any genre of blog! I look forward to hearing from you :)
