Get To Know Kylie | Featured Blogger Friday


Afternoon ladies! I trust those of you that watched Sunday’s video ‘Pavlova With a Twist‘ had a good ol’ giggle? For those who have clearly missed out, head over to my channel and give it a watch, you won’t regret it. We had such a hilarious time filming it that I just had to include some bloopers. As well as clearly having too fun with YouTube, my blog page has undergone a little Spring inspired makeover. Why don’t you take a look? The next two weeks are going to be utterly jam packed with a hefty amount of posts. Make sure you’re subscribed to my blog to be notified of all the new going-ons.

In the meantime, today I am incredibly excited to introduce the ever-so-lovely Kylie from Bitter Sweet Beauty to you. She began her blog as a way of sharing her addiction and love for makeup, so you can expect tonnes of fabulous beauty related posts. She’s right on the other side of the globe to me in sunny California (not at all jealous), and has huge ambitions to go on as a certified makeup artist – I’m rootin’ for ya girl! Head on over to say hello and let’s get to know Kylie.


Why did you start blogging?
Honestly, I was looking for a way to connect with others who have similar interests. I have an obsession with makeup and beauty but I also love writing so I decided to start a blog. I’ve loved every moment of blogging since I started.

Describe your blog in five words.
The five words that would best describe my blog would be Beauty, Reviews, Tutorials, Tips, and Fun.

What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
What gives me inspiration and motivates me is my family and friends. I’m also motivated by the goals I want to accomplish. Maybe that sounds corny but it’s the truth.

How do you stay organised?
I hate not being prepared or organised. To stay prepared and organised on the things I need to do, I make lists. It’s a things I just have to do! Honestly, if I don’t make a list of the things I need to get done and check them off I know I will forget something.

What type of posts do you enjoy reading the most? 
Personally I love reading haul and product review posts. I love seeing what others bought and decided to try. For product reviews I like seeing what others thought of products I love or hate or ones that I am considering trying out.

How often can we expect posts from you?
I have not set up a specific schedule for posting blog posts HOWEVER! I am going to start publishing posts every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday!

What’s your favourite post to date? 
I have a few posts that are my favourite to date. I loved doing my post ‘How I Do My Winged Liner’ because I got a lot of great feedback. I also love sharing my ‘Look of the Day’ posts. I’ve posted multiple and many of them include links to my Instagram where I have videos on how I created them.

What have you learnt in your time as a blogger?
I’ve only been blogging for about 8 months and have learned a lot. The best thing I’ve learned is not to force yourself to blog. Blogging should always be fun and forcing yourself to write a post when you just aren’t feeling it is not fun.

What advice would you give to someone starting a blog?
The advice I would give to someone who is just starting a blog would be to have fun. Like I said on my previous answer, blogging should always be fun. Don’t force yourself to write a post when you aren’t feeling it. Also, don’t write posts just to please others, write about what you want to write about.

What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing about blogging is connecting with other bloggers! I’ve “met” so many amazing people that I consider my friends. Sure, we only really communicate on my blog (or their blog) but they are my friends!

Which country are you from?
I am from the United States and I live in California.

How do you like to spend your weekends?
I usually spend my weekends with my family either watching TV or going grocery shopping. Occasionally we get our nails done or go to the movies. I live in a different city than my two best friends so I don’t go out much. Lame right? I know. If I am visiting them though, we usually do something random on the weekends. It’s always interesting, Lol.

What are the top three things on your bucket list?
The top three things on my bucket list are:

  1. Adventure – I want to travel to so many places and I am determined to do it one day.
  2. Go Bungee Jumping – I am absolutely terrified of heights but this has always been something I’ve wanted to do.
  3. Learn Archery – I just think that would be a fun and cool thing to learn.

What do you do to relax?
Honestly, it depends on my mood. Usually I will just watch TV or sleep. However, if I am in a bad, sad, or stressed mood then cleaning helps to relax me. Weird, I know.
