Sunday Snippet: Grey Skies and Silver Linings

So this week's Sunday Snippet features a fellow #deiseblogger Jamie from Grey Skies and Silver Linings. I love Jamie's blog. It covers different aspects from beauty, mental health and most recently a wedding series. Jamie's content is always well written and relevant and she has a way of drawing people into her posts. I love sitting down to read her most recent posts. Check out our interview below. 

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Jamie. I'm a 24 year old blogger from Waterford. I am an ITEC and CIBTAC qualified beauty specialist. But unfortunately I don't do this a full time job. I've been working in TK Maxx for the last seven years. Oh and I'm also getting married in 2018 :)

2.  How did you get into blogging and why?

I started blogging properly in August of last year. Before that I did have another blog but I never really used it. The reason I started blogging was because I suffer with anxiety and depression & wanted to share my story so others out there who feel the same way know that it's ok to feel the way they are feeling.

3. What do you do when you aren’t working on your blog?

At the moment I am a working away in Tk Maxx which takes up most of my week. But I'm in the middle of doing up my house too, so I'm kept going :)

4. Are you a full time blogger? How did you get into blogging and why? 

I would love to be a full time blogger, wouldn't it be so nice. But due to other commitments right now I couldn't. 

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

Right now I don't blog every week. Simply because I have I have work and so much going on personally too. But I blog about whatever interests me. It doesn't have to be mental health or beauty. 

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

Facesbygrace, sosueme, Leanne Woodfull. 

7. Name the top blogs you read?

The same three ladies. 

8.What makes you read the above blogs?

I love Leanne Woodfulls fashion sense and would love to be able to pull off her style. SoSueMe is such an inspiration, how far she has brought her and blog and now her product range. Faces by Grace reminds me a bit of myself. And I love how honest she is. And how genuinely nice she is. 

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

Hmm.. Oh I know. When I was 15 I had a heart operation in Dublin. Not many people know about that about me. 

10. Link us to all of your social media platforms.






So that was the fabulous Jamie from Grey Skies and Silver Linings, She is a wonderful new Deiseblogger and you need to pop over and give her some support on her pages. I know her wedding series will be a good one.
