Interview with MollieManning

Monday, 7 December 2015

It has been a while since I have posted but here we are. Today's post is all about Mollie Manning. I have only been blogging for two months and during this period she has been ever so welcoming and helpful. So here's a little bit more about the lovely lady behind the blog that is !
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself!
Well, I'm Mollie! I'm 19 years old and I live in the South East of England. I've just started my second year of University studying Digital Photography. I have a blue Frenchie called Harley. I am obsessed with watching Friends and Disney movies! 
2. Why did you start blogging?

I've always been a huge lover of reading blogs and I just wanted to get involved! I had time to spare and having a hobby that involved writing, photography and beauty sounded too good to be true to me. 
3. Who are your favourite bloggers?
I have so many favourites! There are some amazing and inspiring women out there, but my favourites would include: Kate from Gh0stParties or Kate La Vie these days now! I love her interior posts. Rebecca from From Roses, I love her whole blog aesthetic and her photography. I go to Beauty By Kelsey, Jasmine Harding Makeup and I Covet Thee for my makeup fix! These girls are so lovely and some amazing beauty bloggers. Finally for style tips and advice, I go to Megan Ellaby! I adore her blog Pages By Megan. 
4. Do you have any tips for those who are starting a blog?
Yes! Basically just go for it, you never know, it may just change your life. Be honest, do it for the right reasons and work hard. 
5. What are your favourite makeup brands?
This is a tricky one, I'd hate to narrow it down! BUT some brands that just stand out to me are Nars, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Bourjois, MAC and Bobbi Brown. 

6. On the days that you want to relax, what is your pamper routine & what products do you always use?

On days where I get to relax, my pamper routine would include at first a cleanser, my favourite at the minute is Oskia's Renaissance Cleansing Gel it's the best cleanser I've ever tried and it is so worth the hype. After cleansing, I normally like to go in with a mask either: the Super Facialist Salicylic Acid Anti-Blemish Clay mask when I'm feeling spotty but if I need more moisture I've been loving the Trilogy Mineral Radiance Mask or the No7 Heavenly Hydration Moisture Mask. After washing that off with a warm flannel, I finish off with Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lip Balm and Trilogy's Rosehip Facial Oil.

7. As you know the A/W season is coming up, what are you most looking forward to?

Yes, A/W is my favourite time of year! I'm looking forward to burgundy eyes, purple lips, ankle boots, big scarves and coats. 

8. How do you manage work and blogging?

Prioritising and time management is absolute key, so on the days I'm not working like the weekends this is when I photograph in bulk. I plan all my posts out for the upcoming weeks and do a big session all at once during the day as natural lighting to me is key. I then leave all the writing for the evenings, as you can write at any time of day!  

9. What are your blogging goals?

Hmm, this is a tricky one to me! My blogging goals are personal to me, but my main goal is to keep on going, keep on writing and keep on growing. 

10. Where do see yourself in one year?

Well, I'm hoping in a year to have been continually working hard and improving my photography as I'll be entering my final year of my degree. I hope to have travelled more, experienced new things and just being happy! In terms of my blog, I hope I have grown a considerate amount but it's so hard to imagine myself a year from now as anything could happen.

Thank Mollie for allowing me to interview you!
