DOC#7: Featured Blogger #4

 Now for the second of this months featured bloggers. This time round is Ellie from Misellyre, a beauty fashion and lifestyle blog. Her blog has so quickly become one of my favourites because she has a great layout and some of the best quality photos and swatches I've ever seen on Blogger! Why not pop over to Ellies for a bit of a read or stick around and learn a little bit more about her first?

In less than 50 words tell us a little about yourself and your blog.
I'm Ellie, a 22 year old born and bred in Leeds! My blog is my own little place where I can share reviews about beauty products, tidbits about what I get up to in my day-to-day life and occasional fashion posts.
When and why did you initially start blogging?
I started blogging in April 2012, so my blog is still young! I started blogging after following several others for a few months, and wanted my to have my own input in the beauty world. I also wanted to talk to other girls like me that are just as obsessed with beauty, as none of my friends are into it quite as much as I am!

Do you have any tips or ideas for someone wishing to start a successful blog?
My blog is still in its early stages, but what I have learnt is to interact with other bloggers as much as possible. Taking part in the #bbloggers chat, for example, has really helped me to get my little blog out there and I've met some lovely girls too. Also write about what you want and find your own style - people really enjoy reading blogs with a bit of character.

Do you feel you've taken anything out of being part of the blogger community?
Being part of the blogger community has been wonderful, and it has definitely given me the confidence to promote my blog, interact with other people and work with brands. There is always help or advice whenever you need it and I didn't think that still existed on the internet!
What are your 5 favourite products right now?
Right now I'm loving Models Own glitter nail polishes - particularly Pink Fizz! Also Soap & Glory's Love At First Blush, Good Things Fresh Start Creamy Cleanser, Revlon Colorstay Foundation and MUA's Undress palette.

Who are your 5 favourite bloggers right now?
This is a tough choice but I'm going to have to go with Khila from Miss Budget Beauty, Leanne from A Slice of My Life, Fee from MakeupSavvy, Jen from The PolishAholic and Adrienne from The Sunday Girl!

Where can we find you?
At the moment you can find me on Twitter (@misellyre), Bloglovin' and hellocotton.

Any final words of wisdom?
It's hard to get noticed in such a massive community, but if you are passionate about your blog don't give up on it! Remember that it's not just about the number of followers you have, concentrate on putting your all into every post and you will get the recognition you deserve in good time!

P.s sorry this and the next few DOC posts arent particularly festive, I'm a) running out of ideas, b) out every night and dont have the time to put my all in to posting everyday and c) really not enjoying Christmas at all so far!:(
