Ask Daisy #1 - Videos and Future Projects

Sunday, January 25, 2015

I get asked a lot of questions about me and my blog, so I thought I'd start a new blog series, aptly titled Ask Daisy, where I will be answering some of these for you. All of these questions have been submitted by email, in the comments or on Twitter, so that's where you can go if you have any more. I hope you like this post!

What made you start a blog?
I've always enjoyed writing and had been tempted in the past to start a diary to document my life and thoughts. After discovering beauty and fashion blogs, I knew that I wanted to start one, but I also wanted to include posts about myself and my life, like I would in a diary. I didn't start one for a while, as I thought I'd be too young and inexperienced, but I stumbled upon some blogs that were also ran by teenagers, which proved to me that I could start a blog.

What do you use to take photos and how do you edit them?
For taking my photos, I simply use the camera on my iPhone 4s. Although some people may say that the quality isn't the best, I find that it's pretty good and also convenient, as I always have my phone with me. For editing photos, I use the apps Aviary, PixlrExpress and PicsArt, as well as Photoshop, Canva and Fotor on my laptop.

What are your tips for having good skin?
I don't have great skin, but I know that the first step you should take is to form a skincare routine that is suited towards your skin type and works for you. The key is to do this regularly, as you will notice your skin gradually improving. You should also drink a lot of water and eat lots of healthy foods to ensure that your skin looks the best it possibly can.

Where do you get inspiration for your blog?
I get inspiration for my posts from products that I own, discussions on social media and other blog posts, but I make sure to never copy them. For the design of my blog, a lot of it wasn't inspired and was just from me playing around with Photoshop, as well as getting ideas from Pinterest.

Why is your blog called Daisies and Delights?
I really wanted my blog to have alliteration in it, as I feel like that makes it catchy and sound creative. I picked daisies because I love the flower and it is partially my name, which I wanted to be somewhere in the blog title. I used the word delights because I didn't want to limit my blog to only beauty or fashion, so there are lots of little delights here and there.

What items would you recommend from the drugstore?
There are so many bargains in the drugstore, but one of the things that stands out to me is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. It is extremely pigmented, has great coverage and works well for only £4.19. I also really like the Bourjois Cream Blusher in the shade 03, which is blendable, look gorgeous when applied and I talk about a lot. I was thinking about writing a blog post about drugstore picks in the future if you'd like to know more.

Will you ever make YouTube videos?
Honestly, making YouTube videos is something that I'd love to do in the future. Of course, I wouldn't give up blogging, but I feel like videos would be great for accompanying my posts and giving my readers more. I'll admit that I find it quite scary and I probably don't have enough confidence to make videos now, but it's a possibility for the future.

Are there any upcoming projects on your blog?
As of now, there isn't anything major coming up, but that could easily change. I can tell you that there will be a few new series' on my blog, as well as a popular one returning, but I don't want to reveal them right away. I can also tell you that the quality of my posts will be improving throughout 2015 and I'll be blogging about a lot of different things. Apart from that, you'll have to wait and see what the future holds!

So they are just a few of my questions answered! I hope you like this post and make sure you send me your questions if you want them to be featured in an Ask Daisy post. Thanks for reading and I'll see you in my next blog post on Wednesday!

Love from Daisy x
