July 2018 Blog of the Month: Girl Loves Gloss

Girl Loves Gloss

By Jaime
Jaime - Girl Loves Gloss

Describe your blog in fifteen words or less:
Makeup hoarding under the guise of blogging…Beauty, Lifestyle and now Baby!

Why did you start your blog?
I started Girl Loves Gloss because I obviously have a keen love of makeup and beauty and my friends got sick of hearing about it! I knew there was a whole community of lovely people who also loved the world of makeup, skincare, hair and nails and I wanted to plot out my place in it. In all honesty, I was going through a big transition in my life, was turning 30 and felt a bit lost in terms of where I was going in life. Blogging gave me the creative outlet that I was lacking and allowed me to indulge myself in a world I could never tire of talking about!

What do you love posting about on your blog?
My favourite posts are probably my Mascara Mondays – long lashes have always been my calling card and I could never tire of trying new mascara formulas!

What is your favourite post?
I wrote a post called A Very Different January | 10 Years Later and it’s not beauty but rather self care/mental health related regarding my experience of being trapped in a controlling and emotionally abusive relationship. It was exceptionally hard to write, and I am proud of putting it out there in the world.

What is your #1 tip for others looking to start a beauty blog?
I would say don’t expect people to find your right away. Building a readership takes time and commitment and its ok if you don’t have either, but slow and steady wins the race every time.

So check out Jaime’s blog, you won’t regret it! Go to Girl Loves Gloss!
