I've not been tagged in this post but I thought I'd do it anyway. I saw it on Jennie's blog a couple of days ago and thought it seemed like fun so here goes...

Who are your most influential bloggers? Who are the ones that you rely on for reviews and swatches?

The first blog I ever started reading was Lily Pebbles'. This was about a year ago now and I initially got into her blog from watching her videos. Even though she's a beauty blogger/vlogger, I loved her sense of style and honesty about all the products she discussed. From her blog I was then introduced to Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup. Their blogs are amazing and you can tell how much effort has gone into creating each post/video. 

Do you buy a product solely as a result of one review from a favourite blog, or do you look for more reviews from others?

I never impulse buy when it comes to beauty products so I never wholeheartedly trust a review. Usually I'll look up many reviews and go to see the product to stare at it longingly before my mind is made up. 

What is your favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?

This a tough question! It definitely has to be the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette - it's just so gorgeous. To be honest, I didn't actually buy it for myself as I got it for Christmas but it still counts! 

What is your least favourite item that you ever bought as a consequence of blogs?

It has to be Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation. I liked it when I first tried it but now it's broken me out in spots and is far too glittery for my liking! I may give it another chance but it's banned from my make-up bag for now. 

Name 5 products you have bought recently as a result of blogs?

I'm not sure if there is 5 products but I'll give it a go...
  1. Real Techniques Core Collection
  2. Barry M Matt White polish
  3. Essie set
  4. Seventeen Phwoarr Paint concealer
  5. Lush bath bomb

Have you ever given into a blogger hype? If so, which hype?

My love affair with Soap & Glory products is most definitely down to blogging. I got so many S&G goodies for Christmas - I won't be without their products for quite a long time to come. 

Have you ever avoided a blogger hype? If so, which hype?

One word: Mac. I don't think I own, or can even afford, any Mac make-up. I wish I could but for now I'm settling for my drugstore cosmetics. 

Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?

I like to think I can buy a product without checking out a review, and I usually do. If I like the packaging/smell/anything else then I'll buy a product, although recently I have been roaming around Google for lots of reviews. 

No one tagged me in this post so I want to tag all my readers to fill this out on their blogs - leave me your links in the comments!

much love, 


  1. Ha! Anna and Lily are dangerous!

    1. They really are! My wishlist grows bigger and bigger when I watch their videos or read their blogs! xx

  2. It was really fun reading this tag, I like to see I'm not the only buying from what I see or read :) So jealous of your Naked Palette. You can't get in Denmark and the international sites can't ship it to Denmark, because Urban Decay wants to keep in a few countries for now :(

    1. Ah that sucks! Hopefully you'll be able to find a duplicate for it or take a holiday to England :) x

  3. Amazing post, I love the detail you put on all your post...would you like to follow each other on Bloglovin? follow me and leave a comment on my blog and i shall surely be following you back

  4. I bought the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation due to other bloggers saying how brilliant it is - unfortunately it's not for me and I'm getting rid! It broke me out and I have dry skin! This is such a good post as I'm pretty sure all bloggers have ended up buying something due to it being highly viewed/reviewed in the blogging world :)
    Will definitely be giving your blog a follow lovely xx
