So there’s this cute little online blog award going around, that bloggers nominate other small bloggers for. It’s really sweet, and an excellent way to see some of the new blogs on the rise! I received a nomination this week from Amber Highlights. This was completely unexpected, but a really lovely surprise in amongst a super stressful week! You can read her original post here. She runs a blog that as her name suggests is a blog that talks about the highlights her life, like an online journal! It’s really lovely and you should definitely pop over and have a look.
In the spirit of the award I have a few questions that Amber asked to answer.
What is your blog’s story? What is it about?
Ah man, my blog doesn’t really have a story! Not anything exciting anyway! I started it out of a want to talk about things that I find interesting and connect with others who feel the same. RolliBeauty originally started out as a beauty blog but I feel I have settled more into the lifestyle niche as there are just too many things I want to talk about and beauty narrows my blog down to much for to find any real enjoyment in it.
What are your goals for your blog and for life?
Okay these questions are tough! For my blog? I think just to increase my engagement with you guys! I started out of a want to connect to people, so the more people I can connect with the better. For life? To be happy. Man cheesey or what? But my main goal is to enjoy my life, where that will take me I’m not sure yet. But I have no interest wasting my life fixating on what others class as ‘goals’
What’s your blog promotion strategy like?
I always share my blog posts on my social media! Other than that? Not a whole lot, I’m not the greatest at promoting…
Which of your blog posts is your favourite and why?
Ahhh I have a few! Maybe my ‘decision for becoming vegan’? The writing isn’t great however I feel like it was important to explain my reasoning to people (as I have noticed it is extremely common for people to ask why), and also let everyone know I really don’t care what you do. Just respect everyone, you know?
What’s one thing you would like to do and get paid for (besides blogging of course)?
Making stuff, used to make animal beds but never made enough money to live on it long term!
What song is the soundtrack of your like right now?
Hmmm I’m not sure about soundtrack to my life but I am loving Hush by EMELINE – I feel like it is super relatable!
If your life was a movie what would its title be?
‘The Fuck Is She Doing?’
What’s you favourite quote to live by?
“My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything. It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.” | Tina Turner
What’s one thing on your bucket list?
A movie night in or a night out partying?
Well if you asked me a few years ago it out be a night out! But normally a movie night in now, getting old.
If I gave you a million dollars what would you do with it?
Cry. Freak out. Buy my dream house, go on an awesome holiday, treat family and friends, set up an animal charity.
My current favourite blog?
That would be Linda Hallberg’s blog! I absolutely love her makeup, it is amazing well done and creative. She also runs a youtube channel which I feel doesn’t get as much attention as it should. Honestly if you like makeup, amazing pictures and a clean layout then you definitely need to head on over to her blog here.
