Sunday Snippet: Rachsbeautique

This weeks Sunday Snippet is a little bit different. I have a space free in my slot so I decided to answer my own questions, and let you all have a little insight into me and who I am and how I came to be here. 

1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?

4 years ago I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma, and although I always had an interest in beauty it became more prevalent when my patches of my hair fell out and I had to shave it to make it even. I wanted to find a way to help me look normal and almost forget that I was sick. So in September 2013 I started an Itec Make Up Certificate Course in Waterford College of Further Education. I loved my course and decided that I would love to get into beauty full time, fast forward 2 years and in September just gone I became a full time beauty therapy student in Waterford College of Further Education. I love my course and cannot wait to finish my exams and start year 2. 

2.  How did you get into blogging and why?

Following completion of my Itec Make Up Cert, I began working on an odd client at home and decided that in Jan 2015 that I would like to share my tips and tricks with the world. So that is how my blog came about. I started on New Years Day and I haven't looked back. 

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

I am in college Mon - Fri 9-5 and I am either studying, practising some practical work or else catching up on tv or spending time with my family and other half at the weekends. 

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

I'm not a full time blogger, I started the blog to share my tips with my friends and it has grown from there. In the past 16 months I have had over 60000 views on my blogposts which I am really proud of. 

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

I usually like to keep with current trends, but most of my content comes from products I have either bought, or have been sent for review. My Sunday Snippet feature is where I share other bloggers and let people get to know them. It is a dog eat dog world out there so i felt a little sharing and caring of other bloggers would help everyone to support each other. 

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

Emma from, Emma was one of the first people I messaged about my blog, I admired her blog and at the time she was partaking in her Itec Make Up course so I felt we had something in common. She has come to be a very good friend and I love her blog.

Anita from is another lovely blogger who I follow religiously and I love her content, she is also studying beauty therapy in college so that's why her blog appeals to me. 

Sinead from , Sinead was the other blogger that I messaged at the time of my starting the blog. Sinead was a wonderful inspiration to me and I am so happy that i took her advice and went ahead and started my blog. 

7. Name the top blogs you read?

8.What makes you read the above blogs?

I love all of the bloggers above and they each have their own personal qualities which draws me to their blog, whether it be their content or writing style.

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

I hate snakes!
