Behind the Blog - More than Adored

This week is the second week of Behind the Blog  here on YouReview. Thank you for all your support, I appreciate it, and I am sure the featured bloggers do too. 

This week I asked Sarah from over at 'More than adored' a couple of questions about all kinds of things!

Her blog contains reviews, hauls, swatches, and  "Blogs I'm loving" posts, a selection of her blog favourites.  

Here is what she had to say about teaching, blogging and Creme Cup! 

Why did you start blogging?
I was a member on the site Beauty Heaven prior to starting my blog and I was obsessed with checking the ‘Just Blogged’ forum topic. I’ve always enjoyed writing and I thought ‘I could do this.’ I started my blog a very long time ago however I only started blogging seriously at the end of last year and have never looked back.

Why do you enjoy blogging?
I’ve always had a love for writing all through school I loved English and even considered doing a journalism course. The make up and beauty side of things was a growing love that I ended up just wanting to share my opinion and I’ve never looked back. I love being able to share everything beauty, just to show people what I have and love. Also just the community is amazing, I love talking to the other bloggers.

What is one piece of advice you could give to a new blogger?
If you’re thinking about starting a blog don’t do it because you think you’ll get sent free stuff. It’s not like that. YOU have to spend a lot of money on products and YOU have to be the one to review those products. It doesn’t get handed to you. It’s hard work and A LOT of work. I for one didn’t realise how much work there is behind the scenes.
So do it because you love to write and you feel passionate about whatever it is you’re going to blog about. It’s worth all the hard work and money if you love what you’re doing.

What is your go-to/HG lip product?
Oooo this is a tough one! It’s a draw between Mac Rebel or Mac Crème Cup. I think Mac do great quality lipsticks and these two shades I really love and reach for a lot.

What is the worst makeup crime someone could commit?
Still wearing yesterday’s eyeliner. I’m sorry but it’s such a trashy look. I cannot stand seeing girls who have just applied more over yesterdays smudges under their eyes.

What is your dream career/job?
Right now I’m studying teaching and I really can’t wait to be qualified. Dream job is a health teacher at a high school but also still running my blog.

Thanks a bunch Sarah for being featured on this 'Behind the Blog' post!

  1. Mac creme cup is such a pretty shade!
    I so agree with her advice for a new blogger, people think it's easy to get free stuff if you're a blogger.
    But the companies contact YOU only if they recognise that you're blog is getting traffic and if you have good content.

    I really like Sarah's blog :)

    1. True true. Getting free things certainly is enjoyable, but it only comes after a whole heap of hard work beforehand! I like Sarah's blog too! :)

  2. You can totally tell who are the bloggers who blog for followers are free stuff! The sad thing is they are missing out on the most enjoyable part - the awesome community!

    1. That's exactly right! When I started blogging I didn't even know that people could get free stuff. I nearly died when I received an email after having blogged for ages - I thought it was a joke!

  3. Hello gorgeous! :)

    Very interesting blog to read! I love to read all of the reviews. Thanks for sharing them :)

    Anyway, I followed you on GFC & Bloglovin :)
