Featured Blogger: Bonjour Beth



1. Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Beth and I am 21 years old living in the small town of Chesterfield in the UK. I currently work as an examinations officer in a local secondary school. I have a slight obsession with Harry Potter, Pandas and of course all things beauty.

2. Where did you get the idea for Bonjour Beth? Why did you want to start a blog?

Unfortunately there isn't a great story behind why I chose the name 'Bonjour Beth' for my blog.. I just wanted something that included my name and I thought bonjour fit with it quite nicely (plus I love the french language). I started blogging mainly because I wanted a new hobby that would let me express my love for all things beauty related and to use it as my own little world to escape into. I spend hours reading blogs and I thought why not give it a go myself!

3. Link 3 of your favourite posts you've written.



Beauty Favourites of 2014!
This was the first post I did that I was really proud of in terms of content and photography. I loved sharing my favourites from last year.


Goals for 2015!
I really liked writing this post about my new years resolutions. Although it's quite short, I felt like people started to take notice and it gave me a huge confidence boost.


My Current Makeup Collection! 
I have had such positive feedback from this post and I absolutely loved showing everyone what makeup I have in my collection and how I store it. I love reading posts like this and thought it was about time I did one myself.

4. If you were stranded on an island and could only take 3 beauty products, what would they be?

I don't go anywhere without my Clinique superbalm lip treatment so I would definitely take that! My lips tend to get very dry especially in the winter time and this is an absolute life saver.
I would also take my favourite foundation which is the Urban Decay Naked Skin. This is by far the best foundation I have ever tried and I would not like to part with it.
Lastly I would take my Clinique moisture surge moisturiser. As I have very dry skin, I would need this to stay hydrated - it's amazing!

5. Do you have any other hobbies besides blogging?

I think my main hobby other than blogging would have to be singing. I have been singing in a choir for over 10 years now and I absolutely love it. I've recently started doing my own thing and I've just recored a song in a studio. 

6. What are the top 3 beauty tips you would give to your readers?

I would definitely say to use a primer before foundation. I went through a phase of not wearing a primer and you can really tell the difference - your makeup will last so much longer!
Don't sleep in your makeup. It really isn't good for your skin and can really clog up your pores - make sure your face is squeaky clean before you go to sleep.
Drink plenty of water. Drinking water regularly throughout the day can really help your skins appearance - your face will look much more healthy and glowing if you do.

7. What's your dream job?

My obvious dream job would be to blog for a living but I also have a dream to do something with music. I really want to try and work towards both of these things as much as I can this year.

8. What are your New Years resolutions?

- Get fitter and shed a few pounds.- Concentrate on doing the things I love such as music and blogging.- Get rid of all the negativity and focus on the positive things in life.

9. List three bloggers (and links) that you read daily.

Essie Button
I absolutely love Estée! She is an amazing blogger!
Makeup Savvy
One of the first blogs I ever followed - I love it.
What Laura Blogged Next
A new blog that I've really enjoyed reading. Laura is such a lovely girl!

10. What advice would you give others interested in beauty blogging?

Just go for it. If you have an interest in beauty blogging then just give it a try as it's such a great hobby to have and you meet some incredible people through the blogging community.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this - you can find me here if you wish to see more of me!
