*NEW* Feature Friday - Love Beauty and Spa Blog 25th of October



New Feature Friday!
Featuring Love Beauty and Spa

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you're all doing okay feels like this month has rushed by! So will be November and almost..If I dare say it..Christmas.
But on with the blog post! Today's feature I'm pleased to announce is another fellow blogger, Love Beauty and spa which is owned by the lovely Lottie. She blogs all about everything beauty related from reviews to her own personal thoughts! With interesting blog posts and clear photography to match, she is a joy to read! 
I'm extremely pleased that she contacted me to Feature her, so my readers can also find out about her beautiful self!

Read on to see our interview and what Lottie enjoys about blogging.


-------------------------------------------------------
Interview with Lottie l Owner of Love Beauty and Spa


1) What has been your key inspiration to beginning your blog?
    I have always been obsessed with all things beauty, and since becoming a beauty therapist I have had the opportunity to try many new products out. I wanted to share new products and different beauty brands with others.

2) What do you enjoy the most about blogging?
          Although I really enjoy writing each post, my favourite aspect would have to be the really thoughtful and encouraging comments that are left on some of my posts. Bloggers share a really friendly and positive community and everyone is really supportive. It helps keep blogging fun!

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' blog moment?
This probably sounds quite dull, but I think simply designing my blog and publishing my first post was my proudest moment. I am absolutely awful with using computers (most technology for that matter), so it took me ages to set up and even longer to feel brave enough to publish my very first post as I was nervous about what other people would think. I then realised that I should be blogging for me, and not for anybody else and now I never feel nervous about any blog post I publish.
      I also recently attended Superdrug’s Press Show where they displayed new brands and new products soon to be launched in Superdrug stores. This was my first ‘blogger event’ so was really nervous, but met some amazing people and discovered some fantastic new products and had a fabulous day. I now can’t wait to attend more!

4) Where do you see yourself and blog develop in the future?
       I am currently setting up my own beauty business, Heartsease Beauty (www.heartsease-beauty.co.uk) so I would obviously love for that to become successful. I also plan to continue blogging for as long as possible, as I find it really fun.

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the blogging path like yourself?
I think many people who regularly read blogs would love to create their own blog. My advice would be: go for it. You have absolutely nothing to lose, just things to gain. Blogging isn’t about getting your blog ‘famous’, it is about having fun sharing your thoughts and networking with other lovely people within the blogging community. Always write about what you are passionate about and it will always be fun.

6) Which would you say is your favourite type of blog post to do?
I would probably say reviews. I love reading reviews and I love writing reviews – particularly about very new products that have just been launched. Whenever I hear about a new product, I am always desperate to know whether it actually works. This is why blog reviews are so useful!

7) 3 Must have beauty items you couldn't be without!
As you can imagine, I own and use an obscene amount of products, but my top three would have to include BareMinerals foundation, Neal & Wolf Harmony hair treatment, and probably St Tropez tanning mousse. I use them all the time and am yet to find products which top them, in my opinion.

Was so much fun getting to know you more Lottie, all the best for your blog and business!

*NEW* Feature Friday - Cheeky Poppins 18th of October



New Feature Friday!
Featuring Cheeky Poppins

Horrraaaaaay It's Friday and hopefully you all have that Friday feeling! Of course It wouldn't be Friday without Feature Friday on UniqueLoveStyle, so without further a due here's this week's Feature, Cheeky Poppins!

I recall coming across this website and completely falling in love with the concept. There are many quirky ways to add glitz to any outfit, whether it's shoes a blazer or need to add something to your hair.. Cheeky Poppins brings the glamorous quick fix for all those needs! Very well known for their Shoekies which came from the well known moment where an unfortunate staining to a favourite pair of shoes occur, a versatile clip with that added sparkle was used to hide the stain but also bring the shoes back to life with a new look. 
But it doesn't end there, Cheeky Poppins also create alternatives to jewellery, special occasions and day to day adornments!

I was intrigued to hear more of the story of the 'Shoekies' as I had the chance to interview Jennifer, the owner of Cheeky Poppins.

-------------------------------------------------------
Interview with Jennifer Chuks l Owner of Cheeky Poppins Shoe Clips

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
My key inspiration is trying my hardest to inspire originality in fashion by more than just a few daredevils. To see more risk takers on the high street and more eccentricities in my South London neighbourhood. It doesn't take as much effort as some hipsters may make you assume to add a bit of originality and uniqueness to an ensemble, and I have always believed the easiest way to personalise and jazz up anything are the accessories. The easiest but by no means the most dramatic, but if we were all dramatic there will be panic.

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I enjoy the feedback I get from customers the most. I do a lot of instagramming and take a lot of street style images and talk a lot to real people. Tell them about the product and their excitement fills me with more enthusiasm for my product each day. I thought it would never cotton on and I am very glad to eat my own words.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
My proudest moment was winning “Best Selected Exhibitor” by Show Review UK magazine when I exhibited at my first ever trade show Pure London 34 in August this year. I put every bit of my personality into my stand to really hammer home our fun fashion ethos. We had cake stands to display the product in, filled with brightly coloured tissue paper and each accessory was literally the icing on each cake. Boutique owners and buyers loved the concept and the product and it has been a whirlwind of busy busy busy ever since. It was a big investment and I was so proud that we shone brightly enough and were awarded for it.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
I certainly don’t see myself slowing down in any way shape or form in the future. I hope to go from strength to strength with the product. The range has tripled since its launch and I only wish to continue with Cheeky Poppins Shoe Clips as the most innovative product in high street fashion for a very long time. 

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
I am not sure I am in a position to give advice as everyone’s situation going into a career in fashion will be extremely different. Something which applies to every Dick, Tom and Harry would be research your toosh off. Research, research, research. Perspective is a very useful asset and will help a bunch. And sleep, don’t try and be a superhero, it will catch up with you. I think that is the most constructive advice I can broadly dish out.

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
Ah my favourite question. When I saw Bella I realised how girly I actually was. I watch wrestling, am an avid gym goer and prefer cider to a G&T. It has been ages since I have left the house without glass beaded bows attached to my shoes, aka Bella. Purse friendly, real leather so I don’t have to fret if I get caught in the rain and uber transferable. Worn on Converse and snake skin peep toe platforms alike, day and night. I absolutely love them.

New Feature Friday!
Featuring Sensible Stylista

Wow can't believe it is Friday already! Each week has seemed to have flown by so fast, but the days are getting colder and the nights are becoming darker so quickly..So it's perfect to snuggle up with a cup of hot chocolate and browse blogs! So today's feature is bringing to you another Blogger who deserves the spotlight! It's the beautiful, Sensible Stylista.

I met her through Twitter quite a while ago now, she was ever so sweet and supportive of my blog and many others.

-------------------------------------------------------
Interview with Kimberly l Owner of SensibleStylista Blog

1) What has been your key inspiration to beginning your blog? Well, I started blogging in 2011 because I wanted to share my love of bargain-shopping!  My site showcases the more affordable options alongside designer pieces that I pick up for less at stores like TJ Maxx, Outlet malls, and more!
2) What do you enjoy the most about blogging? To be completely honest, I've truly enjoyed "meeting" - I say "meeting" because the interaction is virtual - fellow bloggers! I've made some really fabulous friends that share the same passion for fashion as I do.
3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' blog moment? Hm, I think my proudest moment was finally hitting 20,000 views one month! I can't wait to (hopefully) pass my next goal mark of 50,000 *crosses fingers*
4) Where do you see yourself and blog develop in the future? I hope to expand my readership and continue working with different brands!
5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the blogging path like yourself? Be kind! Take the time to interact with your readers and answer questions.

*NEW* Feature Friday - Kiss&Makeup 4th of October



New Feature Friday!
Featuring Kiss&Makeup

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you've all had a great week and it's officially October too, time to start getting out the coats and scarf! 
This week's feature is the most loveliest blogger, Demi, who runs Kiss&makeup such a creative blog name too I must add. Kiss&makeup is all about beauty and lifestyle, with clear photography and interesting posts she has great potential with her blog!

Was so much fun finding out more about Demi and her thoughts on blogging!

-------------------------------------------------------
Interview with Demi McCann l Owner of Kiss&Makeup Blog


1) What has been your key inspiration to beginning your blog? 



I've always loved all things makeup and beauty, one of my favourite things to do is browse drugstores or makeup departments and stock up on brand new products! As well as that, I love giving my friends makeup advice or sharing with them about my experiences with new purchases - so beauty blogging seemed like a perfect little hobby for me! Really though, what triggered me to start was reading other peoples beauty blogs. There are some truly amazing and beautiful blogs out there, reading them every day is keeping me motivated to keep working on my blog. 


2) What do you enjoy the most about blogging?



The community! It's still very early days for me but I've already spoken to and been in contact with so many lovely people. It's fab having a huge circle of girls (and a few guys!) who all have the same interests and passions as me all just a few clicks away! Another great thing is finishing off a post that you've put a lot of thought and effort into, then sitting back and admiring your hard work!


3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' blog moment?


Hitting over 1000 views after just over one week of blogging, I thought that was pretty crazy! I also have a 'proud' moment every time I get a new follower, it's so satisfying knowing that someone is actually interested in and enjoys what you have to say - so a new follower is always a great thing in my books, I appreciate every single person who follows or reads my little blog!


4) Where do you see yourself and blog develop in the future?
If we're talking about myself specifically in terms of my blog, I try not to think too far into the future - at the moment I'm purely blogging because I really enjoy it, if it ever became anything more than that, well that would be great but I have no plans to pursue beauty as a full time thing currently nor do I have any desire to be the next Lauren Conrad or anything like that!

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the blogging path like yourself?
Be prepared to dedicate a huge amount of your spare time to your blog, especially of if you want to make a success of it. Also, don't expect for your blog to become a roaring success overnight, it takes time, effort and money - I have spent a small fortune on new products to review since I started blogging! Make every effort to interact with the rest of the blogging community, most of the time they're the ones following your blog!
6) Which would you say is your favourite type of blog post to do?
I love discovering a fantastic new product and sharing with the world just how fantastic it is! I hate bashing products, I always try to find the pros as well as the cons in every product I review, but of course I'm always 100% honest.
7) 3 Must have beauty items you couldn't be without!
- GHDs: I'm so naughty when it comes to using straighteners. My ends get so dry but I always refuse to let my hairdresser cut them off completely! I have seriously curly hair naturally and I've never really embraced it fully because it's so hard to manage, as a result I have straightened and blow dried the life out of my poor hair! I think I might make it my new years resolution for 2014 to only straighten it once a week or something!
- Eyebrow kit/eye brow pencils: I am a firm believer in that a good pair of perfectly shaped and primped eyebrows totally set off your makeup! I feel completely naked without eyebrow makeup, I'd pick an eyebrow pencil over foundation or lipstick any day of the week.
- Smashbox Photo Finish hydrating primer: This is one product my makeup bag could not be without. If you read my blog you'll know how I rave about my dry skin, this primer is a lifesaver and keeps my skin hydrated underneath a full face of makeup whilst at the same time providing a smooth canvas for application. Highly recommend!
