Question: How long have you been beauty blogging and what inspired you to start?
Answer: I’ve been blogging on and off since 2011. My blog originally started as an online diary documenting my engagement and wedding. From there it evolved.
I started my YouTube channel around 2014 when I was really depressed and stumbled upon the beauty community. Finding the beauty community helped me dress myself happy and that’s where my channel originated and why it was called Dress Yourself Happy. I wanted to build a community to help others feel and look their best from the outside in. YouTube has saved my life in more ways than I can ever express.
Question: What’s your favorite part about being a beauty influencer? Least favorite part?
Answer: My favorite thing about being an influencer is having the ability to meet so many amazing women. From female entrepreneurs to other influencers, and viewers. I am consistently amazed by the smart, strong, and empowering people I get to meet and work with. That’s why I started Behind The Beauty Podcast. A weekly podcast where I sit down with beauty industry guests to talk about their journey and how they found a career they are passionate about. So often we are told we have to have a job, but rarely are we encouraged to follow our passions as a career.
My least favorite part about being an influencer would be that it’s 24/7. I love working for myself and creating content, but it’s hard for me to turn off. It’s normal for me to work from the minute I wake up into the early mornings like 2 to 3am. Then I go to bed, wake up and do it all over. It’s my own fault, but I love what I do and have so many ideas. This year my goal is to take at least 1 day off and enjoy just being present.
Question: What is your favorite Tweezerman beauty tool and why?
Answer: I LOVE the angled tweezers! Seriously the best tweezers. I have 2 at any given moment. I’ve tried to tweeze my brows using others and it’s usually a disaster. They are also great for applying falsies!
Question: What is the best part about being a Tweezerman Ambassador?
Answer: Best part about being a Tweezerman Ambassador would be getting the first scoop on new launches. Part of my job is to review and share new product launches, by being an ambassador, I get to learn first hand from the brand what’ll be in store before others.
Question: What is your dream beauty tool?
Answer: I’d love a self cleaning makeup brush, lol. I hate washing my makeup brushes. I don’t care how “easy” it is, it’s time consuming and tedious.
Question: What advice do you have for girls who want to start beauty blogging?
Answer: START! You would not believe how many people just want to or think about it. Stop thinking, just do it. It’ll either be for you or it won’t, but you will never find out if you don’t start it. I have a content creator series on my blog where I offer tips and advice, but none of it will help if you don’t start!
