Septembers Featured Blog

 So as of this month I shall be starting a new series of posts in which I will feature a new, upcoming blogger in order to give them a bit of a step up in terms or finding new readers. For the month of September I chose Soph from The Pretty Season to be featured as I immediately fell in love with her blog when I found it around a month and a half ago. Her pictures are great, her style is great and she's just an all round lovely person, and one that deserves so many new followers too! I hope you'll all welcome the idea of having the monthly featured blogger and give Soph's blog a peek, chances are you'll fall in love with it just as I did!

1) In less than 50 words tell us a little about yourself and your blog.
Hi I'm Soph, and I am a 16 year old fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger, blogging over at The Pretty Season! I love to blog about fashion and lifestyle mainly, but I do sometimes have a bit of a beauty post!

2) When and why did you initially start blogging?
I actually had an old blog (LoveLouise), which I started in November 2011, but I stopped posting there for many different reasons and started The Pretty Season around June 2012, but I didn't start posting 'till around July/August ish when I was happy with my design and everything. I started blogging after reading so many amazing blogs, and I just thought that I wanted to join in really!

3) Do you have any tips or ideas for someone wishing to start a successful blog? 
Erm, just to be yourself really and enjoy what you do, don't ever blog if you think of it as a chore, because people can tell if your blogging for a hobby or if your blogging  for other reasons. I think people will follow you if you enjoy what you write, simple as that! But commenting on other peoples blog is good too I guess.

4) Do you feel you've taken anything out of being part of the blogger community?
I'm loving being part of the blogging community! I've learnt so much from other bloggers, I used to always join in to the #bbloggers chat on twitter because I gained so many tips from it! I definitely recommend joining in with the chat. I don't think theres anything I hope to learn, I just learn as I go along!
5) What are your 5 favourite products right now?
Oooh, favourite products! This is so hard! Erm, I'm loving the No7 perfect light loose translucent powder, my Diorshow mascara, MUA lipstick in shade 1, MUA eyeshadow palette heaven & earth and... my batiste dry shampoo!

6) Who are your 5 favourite bloggers right now?
This is even harder! I have so many favourite bloggers... Ok, I love Ellie's blog 'Style & Starbucks', Islay's blog 'Islaay', Ellie B's blog 'Ellie's Favourite Things', Laura's blog 'Style and Sushi' and A Is For Ayla of course!

7) Where can we find you?
I have a twitter: @prettyseason_ , and I used to have pinterest but I deleted it and I have a non-blog related tumblr here. Follow me if you want! (you don't have to :P)

8) Any final words of wisdom?
I don't think so! Thank you so much for having me on your blog Rachael! xxx
I'd like to say a big big thank you to Soph for taking the time to answer the questions and allowing me to feature her on the blog! As always remember to leave your links below or on my Twitter (@aisforaylablog) and perhaps one day It'll be you I'm featuring?
