My First Blog Q And ASaturday, February 06, 2016
Today I have something a little different for you, it is my very first blog Q&A. I have been asked a lot recently if I could do a blog Q&A so I took to Instagram and asked if anyone had a question for me. I will write the user name of the person who asked me the question, then their question in bold text and then my answer underneath.
Q - LauraTFP - What's your holy grail high end and high street product?
A - Ooooh this is such a hard question and a good one too, as you know I am very indecisive but I have chosen and for my high end holy grail product I'm going to choose the Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer I couldn't apply my foundation without using this first, it makes such a difference and is a brilliant product. My choice for my holy grail high street product was a harder one to choose and I'm going to cheat and choose 2 and they would have to be the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation.
Q - Bethaniearnison - If you could have a bag by any designer what would it be and why?
A - Another tough choice but I would have to say it would be the Chanel Large Classic Flap bag with silver hardware, I would love to own a Chanel bag and I think the classic flap is timeless and as the name says classic too so it isn't something that would date. Unfortunately at £3,725 I doubt very much I will ever own one unless I win the lottery but it's nice to dream.
Q - dani_halfpenny - If you had your own makeup line, what would you call it?
A - I'd love to have my own make up line, how amazing would that be? There are so many things I have thought of, things like Valentines because I was born on Valentines day or Mamma's Make Up but I think I would just simply call it Zoe but the O would be heart shaped so it would look something like - Z♡E but better, is that very boring of me?
Q - helenannhill - What's the biggest lesson you've learned in life?
A - Hmm this is quite hard but I'd say to trust my instincts, that worrying doesn't change anything and there isn't any point worrying about money when you haven't got any.
Q - heather_2208 - What's your favourite musical?
A - Unfortunately I haven't seen as many musicals as I'd like to, so I'm going to choose an on screen favourite and an on stage favourite if that's ok? I would say my on screen favourite has to be Dirty Dancing, I would love to see that at the theatre too and my favourite on stage would be Blood Brothers, I do have a wish list of musicals that I'd love to see on the stage though.
Q - littlemissstyleguru - What other brands would you love to try that you haven't already? Like a wish list of brands to try.
A - Oooh, off the top of my head I'd say I would love to try Colour Pop Cosmetics, LA Splash, Kat Von D and Kiko but I'm sure there are loads more I'll think of when I've finished this post. There are some products from brands I have tried that I haven't yet tried but would love to for example the ABH liquid lipsticks and the Sephora liquid lipsticks and I'd love to try more from Too Faced and The Balm too, but as I said there's probably loads more I'll think of, theres so much choice.
Q - hmariet - How did you get into nursing? What was your career path? Any Advice? I'm interested in going into nursing in the future.
A - I wish I had some great pearls of wisdom for you in answering this question but unfortunately I didn't ever have a desire to be a nurse or a calling etc, a few people told me that they thought I'd make a good nurse and I was at a bit of a loss career wise and decided to go for it and once I did I never looked back, it was the best thing I'd ever done, I adored my job, advice wise I'd say go for it, it's an amazing career, it isn't easy but the good far outweighs the bad. I have so many amazing memories and if I was cured tomorrow and back to being a healthy person I would go back in a heart beat there isn't anything else I'd want to do. I would say not to have too many expectations because every day is different and there will be bad days and days when you want to scream but then there will be days when you feel euphoric because a very poorly patient leaves for home well again or a patient who has had cancer and been very ill pops in to see you to let you know they're doing well, it is truly amazing and if you want to do it, go for it, its different every day and you can go through every emotion known to man in 1 shift but it's worth it I promise. If there is anything specific I can help with please feel free to email me on email@example.com.
Q - piperfun100 - If you could have dinner with 5 Youtubers or 5 people off Instagram who would you pick?
A - I'm going to choose 5 people who I don't chat to/know in person or haven't ever met before because then I could get to know them. The first one is Beyonce, I am a huge Beyonce fan and would love to meet her so having dinner with her would be incredible. Next I'm going to choose Sam & Nic from Pixiwoo, I have watched Sam & Nic for many years and still enjoy their video's and my eldest daughter is a make up artist so I would love to chat to them about make up and the industry in general. Next up I'm going to choose Sali Hughes, I got Sali's book Pretty Honest for Christmas 2015 and since then I have enjoyed watching her "in the bathroom" series, she is a journalist and writes about beauty and skin care and is really interesting, I'd love to meet her. The last person I am going to choose is Sara Walker, Sara is the first person I ever watched on you tube and although she hasn't made any video's for a while I would love to meet her, she always seemed so down to earth and lovely, I'd really like to meet her and chat to her.
Q - lucyy_elizabeth - How to deal with depression? And what to do if you feel rubbish all the time and want to be alone and don't feel like socialising etc?
A - Firstly I would say the most important thing is to seek professional help and if you do see a medical professional for depression and don't feel like the treatment you're receiving is helping then tell them and ask if there is anything else they can offer you and tell them how you're feeling and that you want to be alone. Depression is a horrible illness to suffer from and I completely understand, social withdrawal is a side effect of depression and often we feel like we want to be alone and not see or talk to anyone but it can sometimes become a viscous cycle unfortunately, I wish I had the answers for you lovely, I do have personal experience of depression and anxiety and am not doing well myself at the moment so I do understand, but I know if I withdraw from my loved ones I often feel worse, I would suggest speaking to your GP and also tell your loved ones how you are feeling about things too. I'm so sorry I'm not much help lovely but I hope you feel better soon and get the help you need.
Q - itsmekim84 - If you could have a beauty makeup day with 5 celebs, who would you choose and why?
A - I'm not really "into" celebrities and I'd much rather spend the day with my daughters and some friends but if I had to choose I'd choose Beyonce because I'm a huge fan, Katie Price because I think she'd be interesting and good to talk to, Princess Kate (not a celeb but still "famous") I'd love to chat to her and meet a real life princess, Rylan Clarke, he makes me laugh and I think he'd be lots of fun and Emma Willis because I could talk to her about big brother, she is the image of my mum when she was younger so I'd love to show her a photograph of my mum and how alike they are.
