Hey my beauties how are you all today :)
Wow its been a while since we had a Share the Love entry I kinda missed it did you? Well I have a few more to share with you and today we have Stefy who I actually have been following for a while now. Stefy I remember won one of my giveaways if I am not mistaken it was my "Glossybox Giveaway" I think she is a wee stunner and very talented and one of those beauty bloggers who deserve more publicity than she has. You can tell she works very hard and puts alot of passion into her blog and channel. So with further ado here is my interview with Stefy.
1. Hey Stefy Welcome to my blog :) :) Can you tell us a little about yourself :)
Hi everyone! I'm Stefy, a 21 year old bilingual (half british/half maltese) qualified Freelance Makeup Artist who's love for beauty started at the age of 14 after watching a youtube video believe it or not. I Also am a huge Computer geek and graduated from college with a Diploma in I.T. Before my blog was born, my life was all about dance which included 5 years of ballet, 6 years of Gymnastics followed by 2 years of Hip Hop & Jazz.
2. Tell us a little about your blog
I have a Beauty & Fashion blog which I can safely call my "safe haven" as It's become a part of me. I write reviews on products or services that I'd want to share with others and also add Fashion into the mix with Outfits of the days and Inspirational Posts. I also design and create all photos and everything seen on my blog myself as it's the "fun part" after taking photos and editing.
3. What inspired you to start up your blog
My blog started way back in 2009, a friend of mine had sent me a link to a girl on YouTube who had posted a hair tutorial. After that, I had seen others starting up their own blog, posting about products and their opinions. In Malta, Blogs weren't known at the time so I felt like a fish stranded at sea. My blog started as "britese.blogspot.com" which meant "Brit" for British and "ese" for Maltese and soon after that I decided to buy my own domain and host it officially.
4. What is your dream job?
My Dream Job is to work in the Beauty or Fashion Industry which I have experienced already. I have been a Makeup Artist for INGLOT Cosmetics here in Malta and also being a Freelance Makeup Artist does increase your exposure. Working for a magazine or a cosmetic company will always be my Number ONE Job. Ever since watching "Ugly Betty" I was inspired to set goals and chase my dream. I am moving to London in a couple of days which is already a milestone accomplishment for me.
5. Can you share with us some of your favourite blogs to read ?
Some of my favorite blogs are from all over the globe! Starting off with My Best Friend & Fashion Blogger Lara from www.boffism.com, Sophia fromwww.sophiameola.blogspot.co.uk, Jordan from www.bohovanity.com, Carlinn from www.superficialgirls.com used to live in Malta for a couple of years before returning back to Cape Town in SA.
6. Your favorite skin care, hair care and makeup products?
My all time favorite products starting from skincare has to be my Bioderma H20 Sensibio Makeup Remover/Cleaser. For Hair products it's the Aussie Range I always have their shampoo and conditioners, my hair has never felt so soft with this range. As for Makeup products, there is no doubt but I have to say MAC Lipsticks, I currently own a total of 17 Lipsticks from them ranging from their Permanent line to some limited edition one and my favorite finishes are cremesheen and amplified.
7 If you could give one piece of advice to someone who is thinking of starting up their own blog what would it be?
My advice, think about what you would want to write about and categorize what you want your blog to be under. Then think of a fun catchy name and best of all enjoy it. There are alot of inspiration that you can get from many other bloggers and don't be shy to attend any meetups or events in your area.
8. Can You tell us what is in you handbag?? (hehehe I like been nosey? Include a picture ?
I actually Filmed a video on what's in my handbag just about a month ago! I bought a lovely Black & Yellow inspired Celine Boston Luggage Tote and the shape is perfect to fit my Macbook Pro 13" on the go with the zipper closed! The link to the video, it's my summer edition : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=839lu7D37qI
