Beauty Blogger Headquarters: November Task

I was immediately intrigued. After visiting the site I wanted to participate! 
So this months task is to share how you became a blogger.

How long have you been blogging?
I dont remember exactly when I started the blog but my first post was published on the 24th of January 2012.
What/who inspired you to start blogging?
I've watched youtube videos for years and wanted to share my experiences with products, my opinion etc but was never brave enough to make my own videos. I started following blogs and decided to make my own as a way to share MY experiences and I couldn't be happier!
Did you tell your family and friends about your blog? If so, what was their reaction? Are they supportive or "in the dark" about your blogging?
I haven't told anyone yet! I'm not trying to hide it but I don't go out of my way to tell people.
What goals or dreams did you have for your blog when you started? Have you accomplished them?
To have a solid following who would share their opinons with me. I'm not quite there yet!
If you could give your beginner-blogger-self one tip of advice, what would it be?
STOP TRYING TO HIDE YOUR BLOG. When I first started I did my best to hide my blog, I never put a photo of myself on posts etc but now I really dont care!
What is your favorite and least favorite thing about being a blogger?
Getting to talk about makeup and beauty products. Plus it gives me a reason to buy new products! My least favourite is that I love makeup and would love to do tutorials and stuff but you cant really do that in posts. 
What does your blog name mean? How did you decide on it?
I tried so hard to come up with a name but just couldn't so I ended up picking a random one, I originally wanted 'Where the Pretty Things Are' but someone else already had that and I ended up going with All The Pretty Things (I think it came from the song all the small things hahaha). But I'm glad I went with this name.

  4. I agree with you on making videos! I really would love too, but I'm still to shy to get in front of a camera and talk to it lol. I found your blog through BBHQ and I have to say, you have yourself a new follower! =) Hope to keep in touch with you; we bloggers need to stick together, haha!
