Sunday Snippet JKBeautybuzz

Today's Sunday snippet features the lovely Julie who is a beauty blogger on a budget. I love popping in for her recent posts, where i catch up on all the bargains she has found. 

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself? 

My name is Julie and I'm 28. I am a secondary school teacher and I  have a little boy, Conor who is my life! Blogging is one of my favourite hobbies!

2. How did you get into blogging and why? 

I actually started out on YouTube in 2009 and at that time, everyone more or less had a blog to go with their channel. After my channel was deleted, I fell out of the whole blog/video thing but I felt this was a good year to start back and I did! 

3. What do you do when you aren't working on the blog?  

When I'm not working on my blog, I'm cleaning or redecorating our home or looking after Conor. My partner often brings me for long romantic drives to Penneys where I shop away to my heart's content! I try to make my posts well in advance so I can fit in videos too. I would say I exercise but I don't haha.

4. Are you a full time blogger?  

No part time unfortunately. I definitely don't have the time to blog full time and work because my work comes home with me in the evening and can last until all hours. I would love to live the dream where blogging would be my income and although I have a small income off it, its nothing to rely on yet. I usually use my blog revenue to buy makeup to review again......vicious circle!!

5. How do you keep coming up with content for the blog? 

I look everywhere and anywhere. One of my recent posts is about having my Christmas Shopping done already so I literally pick things from the air that are relevant. I think of things that my friends and I would read and run with it. 

6. Name some of the bloggers you look up to and why? 

I think we all love Cherry Sue. I love how she made her blog work for her and was able to pay for her sons college fees because of it. She inspired us all I suppose, to just keep going because we all can get to where she is eventually!

7. Name the top blogs you read? 

Cherry Sue doin the do, chasingrubieschasingpearls,, facesbygrace, Ninasbargainbeauty and fluffandfripperies. They are the few off the top of my head but I literally follow so many more and especially those around the Munster area. 

8. Why do you read those blogs? 

I suppose I relate to the girls a lot and I like the way their content is really diverse.

9. Tell us something we don't know about you? 

I once taught blogging as an extra curricular in a school. 

10. Link us to all your social media links?
