Hi Laura's lovely readers, I'm Natasha and I blog over on www.natashaparisblog.co.uk. I used to joke that I was 19 going on 90..but now I'm 20 that joke doesn't really work anymore, haha. To be honest I'm not great at talking about myself but I thought I'd push myself to come out of my comfort zone and join in with Laura's interview series.  I'll end this little intro by saying I'm really quiet when I don't know you but when I do I can be a right chatterbox. PS I'm definitely the kinda person you'll catch singing (and dancing) in the car whilst stuck in traffic..*guilty*. I hope you enjoy reading my answers :)

1. How did you start blogging? Did anything or anyone influence the decision? How long have you been blogging for?
I started natashaparisblog back in May 2014, around the time when I was having a pretty rubbish time in my personal life. Without going into too much detail I had my heart broken and it left me feeling very down about myself.  I knew I had to do something to try to make me happy again so I decided to start my blog. 

2. What do you blog about? Is there a particular thing you love writing about the most?
My blog is primarily beauty based - just to justify the amount of beauty products I have haha. I'm trying to broaden my blogging horizons this year though and introduce more fashion and lifestyle content as their posts I always enjoy seeing/reading.

3. Have you learned any new skills from blogging?
To be honest I'm fairly rubbish when it comes to the technical aspects of blogging - such as coding and I SEO. However I have learnt some technical things such as how to schedule content and photo editing. Blogging has also played a big part in helping me to rebuild my confidence and I'm less afraid to start conversations with people now.

4. If you had to start blogging about something else, what would you pick and why?
This year is the year when I'd like to blog about anything that takes my fancy - whether that be an outfit,a day out or a new blusher. However in a dream world I'd love to travel and blog about it, as I love visiting new places and experiencing different things - however unless I become a millionaire overnight unfortunately that's not very likely to happen ;)

5. Do you have any advice for people who want to start blogging but aren't sure what to how to or what it involves?
If you're reading this and you're thinking about starting your own blog then go for it. Blogging is very very time consuming, but if you enjoy it then those hours are definitely worth it. The blogging community is absolutely amazing and I know there's plenty of people to offer help and support to you if you need it.
