Get To Know Hannah | Featured Blogger Friday
Happy Friday! I must squeeze in a big thank you for reading my mid-week post ‘How to create a DIY photo booth for you blog photographs‘. If you’re looking for a budget friendly way to achieve incredibly professional snaps, have a read – you’ll love it.
This week I’m so excited to introduce the ever so lovely Hannah McMartin. Over on her blog you can expect heaps of in-depth product reviews, makeup tutorials – oh! And she even has her very own YouTube channel. Her favourite shop in the world is the duty free section in airports – I’m with ya girl! So, let’s get to know Hannah.
Why did you start blogging?
After graduating Uni I was really struggling to find a job, as well as using my time in a creative manner (I was driving myself crazy!). I love writing and I have an obsession with beauty so it made sense to tie the two together!
Describe your blog in five words.
Personable, Relaxed, Informative, Photography, Beauty
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
I tend to write about products I love, or trends I’ve seen in magazines/online. I also take inspiration from other blogs I’ve seen in terms of the layout; I’m looking to redevelop my site so I’m constantly on the look out for ideas!
How do you stay organised?
It’s definitely difficult having a full time job and trying to keep on top of blogging, but being disciplined enough to set time aside every other evening is how I manage to plan my blog. My diary is my savour in and out of work!
What type of posts do you enjoy reading the most?
I’m really into reading posts about YouTube channels at the moment. I’m trying to get mine up and running so any inspiration I can take from other users is so helpful! I also love reading product reviews as it encourages me to try something I wouldn’t have thought about before.
How often can we expect posts from you?
I try to be as on top of things as possible, so expect a few posts a week!
What’s your favourite post to date?
My favourite has to be my post on creating a look seen at Burberry for less. For this post I created my first YouTube video, which was a pretty big deal to me! A dark lip is also my signature, so I feel like this is really reflective of me.
What have you learnt in your time as a blogger?
To go with your instinct! If you love writing about something then do. Passion really shines through in writing, and I find that people respond so much better to that than generic writing about a topic you’re vaguely interested in.
What advice would you give to someone starting a blog?
To read as many blogs as possible for inspiration on how you want your tone to be. It’s also great to give content-related feedback to posts and blogs to establish yourself in the community!
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
The sense of freedom writing gives you! There’s such a lovely community in the blogging world and I love pressing that send button to see who will comment on my posts. It’s great receiving feedback on something you’re proud of.
Which country are you from?
How do you like to spend your weekends?
I love spending time with my friends and family whether that be shopping or catching up over a coffee/cocktail (I’m you’re typical girly girl). I also adore getting in my dressing gown (which looks and feels like a polar bear) and curling up on the sofa watching my guilty pleasure, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
- To develop a skincare range
- To travel around Italy
- To see Coldplay perform
What do you do to relax?
I love putting on some candles, painting my nails and listening to a good podcast/watching a Netflix series – Suits is my favourite at the moment!
