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.

What Laura Blogged Next

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