Whenever you know you’ve a holiday coming up it’s the small things that you often forget about. I tend to write a checklist of various things I need to book in for. From taking care of my travel documents to making appointments for some beauty upkeep – it can be a busy time prepping. Trying to book in for appointments can be a little frustrating as you’ve limited time with work commitments etc and it’s more or less impossible to block book appointments or your day.
I’ve been going back and forth with this post for a long time. I never really get personal on my blog but when life’s obstacles get in the way then I feel it’s time to address them. Before I get into things I don’t want people to think that this is another blogger and her sob story. I don’t feel that I’m sobbing, doing this for attention or following in the footsteps of others. I put myself online regarding fashion, beauty and lifestyle but today’s post is a little different. For me to be a serious blogger I feel that it’s OK for me to let you know a few things that have impacted on me. If I want to achieve the best in life and also for the Niamh Kelly brand, then from time to time I will share what’s going on in my life.
Ever look at a girl and think that she would be the funnest person to be friends with? This is exactly how I feel when I watch Vivianna Does Make Up. She seems like such a cool girl and looks completely effortless. Anna is a UK blogger based in London and has established herself as a beauty blogger. Her euthusiam for life is quite sweet and she always remains true to herself no matter how well her blog is doing.
What I love most about Anna is how she is not afraid to go in front of the camera without any make up on. Now I will admit that I’m not sure if I could do that. I have such horrible dark circles around my eyes and I’m always conscious of them. However, Anna has incredible skin, perhaps this makes it a little easier for her to go bare for her blog and YouTube Channel. Her looks are often quite simple and natural looking. Now and then Anna will incorporate a more glamorous make up style into her videos.
Anna knows a thing or do about all things beauty and is always on trend with the latest make up releases. I would love to see her entire make up and beauty collection as I’m sure it is huge. Simplistic often springs to mind when I think of Anna, this also translates into her social media and blog images. Being a huge fan of both drugstore and high end brands, she caters to all audiences.
By the way, have I mentioned that Anna is friends with beauty blogger extraordinaire, Lily Pebbles. The two best friends share their love of beauty and work together on several projects and YouTube videos. Imagine working closely with your best friend in the world, how amazing would that be?! Having a genuine group of friends within your work setting and blogging community is the best feeling in the world. It must feel like you’re in a bubble talking make up and sharing this with them, perfect job eh?
Remember I was saying earlier about looking at a person and wanting to be friends with them? Here’s another reason why, the laid back Anna is not afraid to laugh at herself. For Halloween you will never see her in a cliché girly costume. Nope, she’ll be the one dresses up as a massive pumpkin. My kind of girl! She also incorporates the two ff’s into her blog – fashion and food. A girl who loves their grub is a favourite of mine, combined with a chic style and the odd chocolate chip recipe then I’m in heaven.
How was everyone’s weekend? Have you all started your Christmas shopping yet? I treated myself to an upgrade yesterday and purchased the HTC One in rose gold. I have not stopped playing with the phone. I love it.
