This get to know… series is definitely one of my favorite features on this blog, it’s so much fun to find out more information about other bloggers and today we’ll be having a chat with Kirstie from Short Lashes.
Who are you and what do you blog about?
I’m Kirstie from www.short-lashes.co.uk and blog about lifestyle and a little bit of travel. I tend to blog about things or subjects that I’m interested in or enjoy doing.
Where did the name of your blog come from?
I wanted to be a Beauty Blogger and when I started almost four years ago there was so many so after a few hours of googling I found a name that nobody had. I am looking to re-brand soon as I don’t think my name goes with my blog anymore, I feel like I have out grown it.
What do you like to do in your free time other than blogging?
I enjoy reading, country walks, watching the latest film or tv series and even I have a spare afternoon I maybe even do a spot of crocheting.
Do you have any regrets about your blog since you first started it? Anything you wish you’d done differently?
No huge regrets really, maybe a less beauty sounding blog name so I wouldn’t have to do a re-brand! One thing that I have learnt is not to compare yourself to others, all blogs are individual and you will get different opportunities so it doesn’t matter if you don’t get that email everyone is talking about.
Have you ever received any negative feedback from your blog and if so, how did you react?
A few mean emails but you have to move on from them and brush them off!
Do you have long term plans for your blog or do you just take it as it comes?
I never thought I would have blogged for this long so I never had a long term plan! I have just seen how everything has came, I just try to stay true to myself and blog about what I like and what I am interested in and just plan on carrying on doing that. The dream goal is to be a travel blogger and go on some luxurious breaks and get paid to sit next to a pool all day…. it would be a tough job but someone’s gotta do it!
Where do you get the ideas for your blog posts?
Daily life, Instagram and what is popular with people at the time.
What is the most exciting opportunity you’ve had from blogging?
I can’t think of one opportunity that has stood out but it is pretty exciting getting to check out and review places/products before they are released.
When did you start blogging?
When I first moved to Sheffield, almost four years ago!
What are your favourite blogs to read?
I do need to read blogs more but these are some of my favourites:
