Featured Blogger #11: July



I've gone international this month to find my 'Featured Blogger' for the month of July! Christine's blog about beauty and fashion, Little Red Bow, is one of my favourites as its always interesting (from my point of view at least) to compare products and trends from other countries. Even more exciting is that Christine also features lots of products from the UK, as well as Canada and the US, she's much more relateable than you first might think! Below Christine has answered some questions so you can all get to know her a little bit better!

In less than 50 words tell us a little about yourself and your blog
I'm a 26 year old beauty obsessed blogger from Toronto, Canada.  I have tried a lot of beauty products in my time and I like to share which ones I think are worth buying and which products to avoid.

When and why did you initially start blogging
I work as a medical secretary and although I'm grateful to have a good job I was a bit bored.  I've always liked makeup and I don't really have many friends who share my interests so I thought I'd start blogging about beauty products as a hobby. Oddly enough my step dad was the one who pushed me to start blogging.  He now wants to start a blog about our dog haha.

Do you have any tips or ideas for someone wishing to start a successful blog?
Don't worry if your blog doesn't look perfect right away!  You learn as you go and you will get better with writing and photo taking with time.  It's also important to take note of what you enjoy reading and seeing in other blogs.  For me I like seeing how beauty products look on so I've always strived to show that in my own blog.

Do you feel you've taken anything out of being part of the blogger community
As I've been out of school for a long time it has re-taught me time management.  The best thing about the blogging community is that I've met some great local bloggers at events and have made some international friends too.

What are your 5 favourite products right now?
Maybelline The Rocket Mascara, Wet N' Wild Purty Persimmon Lipstick, Sleek Blush By 3 Trio in Sweet Cheeks, MAC Impassioned Lipstick, and MAC eyeshadow in Gleam.

Where can we find you? (twitter, lookbook, bloglovin' ect.)
 I'm not very active on Twitter but I have a Facebook page you can visit by clicking here!
My Bloglovin link is: http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/4299481

Any final words of wisdom?
If you're just starting out in the blogging world it may feel like you're talking to yourself at first.  Just keep writing and commenting on other blogs and your blog will take off in time.
I couldn't agree with those 'words of wisdom' any more! If you've enjoyed reading this snippet of Christine's story why not have a wander off to her blog Little Red Bow now?
