Interview with Aly from Seven Things Beauty ♥
1. A short summary about yourself?
My name is Alyssa but I personally hate the name and always have gone by Aly, Aly-Marie or A. I live in the United States but would love to visit Canada and France. I do also speak French. I really love creative writing as well:) I also love to draw and I think I may have the most doodled on notebooks ever!
2. How long have you been blogging and what inspired you to blog?
I started my first blog "Makeup or Breakup7" on March 6th and I ended up deleting it soon after I got my other blog "Seven Things Beauty". I also (somewhere along the way....) had a craft blog called Creative Flow7. That's a lot! I wanted to blog because I started becoming like OBSESSED with makeup and decided it would be fun to have my own little place to share my knowledge with others :)
3. You do a lot of great product reviews, what type of beauty products can we see the most of?
I personally think I suck at mascara reviews, so you wont see many of those! I think lip products and eye shadows are probably the most reviewed product on my blog...
4. You share a lot of shopping tips, which 3 do you feel are the most important?
I definitely think its important to think about what you already have so you don't end up buying almost the same exact thing twice. Another good tip is to make a general shopping list so you don't get too out of track. The last tip would be to never buy anything that you think is SUPER overpriced because, lets face it! A lot of stores charge way too much for some products- chances are you could get the same exact thing for so much less at another location.
5. I noticed you just started another blog on poetry you write. Where can we find this blog and what inspires you to write your poetry?
You can find this blog at http://www.seventhingspoetry.blogspot.com (I know, very original :) What inspires me the most is just day to day experiences. I know it may seem like something really huge has to happen to actually write a poem about it...but really the best poems are from little things that happen because you'll find yourself really finding ways to express just the simplest thing in a really cool way:)
6. What are your favorite 3 makeup brands?
Hmmm... MAC, Covergirl, and Tarte- BUT that was nearly impossible! How dare you ask me a question like that Kelly!!
7. Why do you really enjoy blogging?
I like to blog because it makes me feel like I am helping others to really get to know the wonderful makeup art form.
8. What are your favorite parts of blogging?
I really love when people comment or email me. It is not about what they say- just that they took the time to reach out to me.
9. How long have you been wearing makeup?
I have been wearing makeup for quite a few years but I started getting OBSESSED with it about 2 years ago.
10. What made you choose to start a Beauty blog?
Again, I became obsessed with makeup! I think the only thing that stopped me from the MY STRANGE ADDICTIONS show was that I actually had to spend lots of money on makeup. If it was free, I would be on that show! LOL.
Thanks Aly for this interview! You have a great blog with a lot of creativity:)
