An Interview With...Corrie, DizzyBrunette3

[Melanie disclaimer/update]
I was going to apologise for being MIA as a blogger, but as a couple of people have mentioned, blogging is my hobby, not my career and therefore I shouldn't have to apologise if I don't have the time for doing it!
I am currently in a horrendously foul mood as i've recently moved and quite frankly hate it. I want to go home. Everyone keeps saying I just need time to adjust, blah blah blah, but I don't WANT to get used to it, I want my home and my family and everything the way it was.

Anyway, in an attempt to get back to blogging and a tiny shred of normality (although I'm having to hijack the internet at my new workplace), I've got another blogger interview for you, with Corrie from Dizzybrunette3

I only started reading Corrie's blog relatively recently (around the start of the year), but I really like the cute layout of her blog and the product reviews - both highstreet and higher end - on offer.


What Inspired you to start your blog?
I was inspired by other blogs and YouTube channels that I regularly read/watched. I’ve always loved make up and writing so setting up a blog seemed like a natural thing to do.

What would you like to achieve from your blog/channel?
I think I’ve already achieved much more than what I imagined, for example the Cosmo blog award nomination and the amount of readers is pretty mind-blowing! I love being able to give advice to readers and hope that it helps them! I would love to have my blog featured in a magazine though!

What advice would you give to anyone thinking about starting their own blog and/or channel?
Just write about what you love, be unique and write a blog that you’d like to read yourself.

(Other than your own of course) what blogs/channels do you recommend?
Ooh there’s so many! Off the top of my head; Belle’s Boutique, MissyElz, Jennifer Rose Ellen, MilkTeef, Viviannadoesmakeup, Ghostparties are blogs and videos are: Pixiwoo, Tanya Burr, Lisa Eldrige, Essiebutton and Dollybowbow.

If you could choose one celebrity to guest edit your blog for a day who would you choose and why?
Probably Cheryl Cole, I love her and I’d love to find out exactly what make up she uses as she always looks so perfect!


Which celebrity do you think has the best overall make-up/hair style?
Millie Mackintosh from Made in Chelsea is my total make up crush. She has a really natural style that looks lovely and glam at the same time! Total girl crush!

What one item (cosmetic or otherwise!) could you not leave the house without?
I never leave the house without lipstick as you always need to reapply as the day goes on!

♥ Do you ever go out without make-up on?
Not really no, I’m not very confident without it, but on holiday in the day I wear no makeup and at night it’s a lot more natural J

What would you say is the best High-street/drugstore line for each of the following:
            a. Make-up: L’Oreal or Bourjois
b. Hair care: Aussie
            c. Skincare: La Roche Posay

 Any make-up/haircare/skincare tips?
Wear what suits you and your skin type. Always get colour matched for foundations. Hair wise the more conditioner the better! And skincare, drink lots of water and use Origins super spot remover for any nasty spots!


♥ How would you describe your style?
Very girly!

♥ Who's your biggest style influence/where do you draw inspiration from?
I usually get influence from other fashion blogs or celebrities. Currently I am loving Mollie King from the Saturdays look.

♥ Favourite place to shop?
Ooh has to be Topshop or Zara at the moment!

♥ High-street or designer?
High-street all the way!

♥ Best fashion buy?
Probably my grey leather jacket from Miss Selfridge, it’s a staple item in my wardrobe which goes with everything!

♥ What would you consider wardrobe essentials?
A leather jacket, well-fitting pair of jeans, floral dresses, plain tops to match everything and shorts!

♥ Fashion "do's and don'ts"?
My number one fashion don’t is flesh coloured tights, especially with open toed shoes. Fashion do at the moment is pastels!
