1. Thank the person that nominated you and link to their blog.
Well I have been nominated for this a few times in the past week or two, and so I thought I'd do a multiple acceptance post to combine them!

Laura from http://laurasallmadeupbeauty.blogspot.co.uk/
Thank you all so much for nominating me! I feel so flattered, and I love all three of these blogs - they are among my Top 5 daily MUST read blogs and each of these girls is absolutely lovely! I can't recommend their blogs highly enough :)
2. Tell us how the idea of making a blog popped up and what makes you continue it?
Well I started reading a few blogs that friends had started, and I really enjoyed them. I have always loved writing and fancied myself as a bit of an amateur writer (I write stories and screenplays for fun), so I thought starting my own blog would be a good way to keep in practice - I had no idea how fun it would be and how much of a community feel beauty blogging has to it! My friends blogs were more healthy living and lifestyle blogs, I just decided to write about fashion & beauty because its what I enjoy - I'm glad I chose that as I am now totally hooked on blogging :)
3. Describe a usual day in your life.
Well at the moment I'm sick so I'm signed off work, but usually a day in my life during the week would be getting up at about 6 am, showering and getting ready for work. My boyfriend Jon drops me off to work at a breakfast club at a local school. I arrive at 7.15 am and set up activities for the children, they start arriving at 7.30 and I help to give them breakfast and play with them until its time to drop them off at school at about 8:50 am. I then leave work at 9 am, and come home - I do household chores, get in some internet time, watch tv, have lunch, etc. I also spend some time doing bits & pieces for my side business.
Then at about 2:45 I head back to work again for the after school club, I start work at 3.15 and again - its all setting up activities, keeping the kids entertained, serving them snack, etc. I finish work at 6.15 and come home, usually make dinner and then spend the evening with Jon - we usually watch tv or a movie, chat, I do my nails, etc.
If its the weekend, I tend to have a lie in and either I'll have a party to do that day (I have a party planning/childrens entertainment business on the side) or we'll go out somewhere.
4. The best collaboration with a blogger.
I haven't really collaborated with anybody yet, but I hope to be doing so soon! :)
5. The worst collaboration with a blogger.

6. Describe what having a blog means to you.
Well as I said, I absolutely love it! Its a great outlet and its just a fun and rewarding hobby :)
