Laura Loves Beauty Blog

Tell us a little about your blog.
Laura Loves Beauty Blog is a beauty blog which is just over one years old. It’s a place to share and talk about beauty news, new products, tips and tricks and more. I like to keep things on Laura Loves Beauty light hearted and fun, while still being genuine and helpful towards my readers. I’m enjoying putting a bit more of my personal life and personality into the blog at the moment with a few lifestyle-ish posts.

What is the story behind how you came to be a blogger?
I started to do quite a lot of product reviewing on beautyreview.co.nz and loved giving my opinion on the multitude of products I buy and use. After putting a few posts up on NZGirl.co.nz I became one of their official bloggers and decided it was time to put together a proper site. This coincided nicely with having just over a month off from work. I played around, made mistakes, wrote, took photos and pulled together what we now know as Laura Loves Beauty Blog.

Where do you go or what do you do to get inspiration for your blog?
I try out new products, stroll beauty aisles and check out my favourite blogs. I also like scrolling through different makeup groups on Facebook to see what everyone is talking about or wanting advice on. Sometimes taking time out for myself is a great way to get inspiration too.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt and how has it shaped you?
It’s one that I am still learning, and that’s to not compare my blog to others and to remember that I am doing what I need to do. Not what others are doing or what other people think that I should be doing. I think by going through that journey my blog is becoming more honest and more ‘me’, it’s also a lot less stressful.

What one piece of advice would you give to new bloggers?
To remember that it is all for fun, and if it isn’t fun anymore then you need to take a step back and evaluate. I like to look at the bigger picture, for example I ask myself “if this post is a day behind schedule is the world really going to crumble?” Take a breath and move forward.

Name some of the bloggers that you look up to and why?
Laura from the lauralaurablog is amazing, her photography is always great and her site layout is so nice. I really like Morgans (Hyacinth Girl) writing style and how honest and true she is to herself and her opinions. Makeup Obsessives run by Kirsty Leigh is growing by the minute and will possibly take over the world. I really like Kirsty’s approach towards her readers and how creative she is with her content. I always have Lenatalksbeauty.com, elesedowden.com and Bonniebeautyxo.com ready to read too!

About You:

What do you think about when you are alone in your car?
I’m never alone in a car, my favourite thinking place is in a long hot shower. I think about life, things I need to get done now and in the next few days and I usually do a bit of crazy day dreaming too.

What song is your personal anthem?
OMG this is too hard. I can’t chose one, I have so many jams. I love the song ‘Wildfire’ by SBTRKT, ‘Flawless’ by Beyonce and Nicki, I’m a huge Kanye West fan, have a huge soft spot for 90’s pop and can not keep still when I hear ‘No Diggity’ by Blackstreet.

If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?
I’d do a platter full of cheese, crackers, olives and meats to start and then make my classic homemade from scratch Mac and Cheese with a big side salad. Come over a second time and you’d get an asian feast of dumplings, sushi and Vietnamese spring rolls.

In the movie of your life, who would play you?
I have no idea! Someone who’s short and understands the struggle of wanting to dress and look fabulous, but be comfortable at the same time. That’s the only way you could get across my awkwardness and life goals.

Where is your happy place, and why?
My bedroom. It is my little, safe, cozy place. Everything is in the place I want it to be in and I have everything I need there. I am also crazy happy when inside a Sephora or buying french chocolate pastries from the pizza place in Ohope, Whakatane.

How would you describe your personal style?
Relaxed, loose, black with a pop of colour. Unfinished without makeup.

What is the last thing that made you say ‘wow’?
Waking up on the train between Bangkok and Chiang Mai on my recent trip to Thailand. Pulling the curtain away to see stunning forests and mountainsides was just incredible. It was a moment where I realised how proud I was of myself for travelling there and going outside my comfort zone. It was also amazing to see the way some people were living in these areas.

What is your wish for the future?
To stay happy, work less but do more. I wish to be success in my own special way.
