Firstly a huge thank you and big virtual hug to everyone that approached me to take part in my new Featured Blogger series. I’m very excited to have one of you feature on my blog every Friday. If you would like to appear on Clarina Beauty, please get in touch via the contact page. So without further a-do, I am super excited to introduce the lovely Dannii from A Beautiful Thing, the first blogger to land here on my blog, but also a blogger also from England, woo-hoo! I love how diverse her content is. She writes about everything from beauty, to travel to lifestyle. So without further a do, let’s get to know Dannii.
Why did you start blogging?
I first followed beauty and travel blogs on Facebook. I would read them daily and thought why don’t I start my own? So here I am!
Describe your blog in five words.
Beauty. Makeup. Travel. British. Fun.
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
My two favourite topics for my blog are beauty and travel. I read a lot of magazines and online posts so I always see wonderful places and new beauty products that inspire me. Other bloggers also motivate and inspire me with their kind comments on my blog.
How do you stay organised?
I keep a journal and jot down all my ideas for future posts. I then write down an order of which ones to write up and post next.
What type of posts do you enjoy reading the most?
I love anything makeup and beauty related, as it inspires me to try new products and looks. I also love travel posts, as I enjoy visiting new countries and cultures myself.
How often can we expect posts from you?
I post around 3-4 times a week.
What’s your favourite post to date?
Sparkly Eyes with Urban Decay.
What have you learnt in your time as a blogger?
Preparation and organisation are key. I never realised until I started my own blog that it takes a lot of planning ideas and posts in advance.
What advice would you give to someone starting a blog?
Make sure you have a journal to jot your ideas in, be organised and be yourself.
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
Interacting with other bloggers, knowing other people enjoy my posts and also getting inspiration from other bloggers for travel and beauty.
Which country are you from?
How do you like to spend your weekends?
Having fun! I like to do new things, even if it’s just trying a new food for the first time. I love days out to zoos, museums, new cities and towns. I just enjoy seeing and doing something new.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
I would love to go on an African Safari, skydive and visit a beautiful tropical island.
What do you do to relax?
I love to read and have a relaxing bath using a Lush bath bomb.
