Isn’t the holiday season so exciting?
With the festivities and the New year around the corner,I wanted to bring something special for you all.Same thought was being shared by my fellow blogger Sprinkleofsurprise. 🙂 Don’t forget to check out her blog and give her a follow.She writes such amazing posts. I absolutely adore her style.
After much thought,we came to a fun post idea.We would be asking each other same 10 questions to get acquainted more and share our musings with you all. ;-)Don’t forget to check out her blogger interview post where you can read what I had answered. 🙂
So ,what are we waiting for?
- Hi! Please introduce yourself and let the readers know what your blog is all about.
Hi everyone! I’m Sprinkle of Surprise, and my blog is all about LIFE. I consider myself a lifestyle blogger, and my posts and content range a wide variety of topics! I love speaking about fashion and beauty, along with health/fitness, and books!
- How did you get started blogging, and what motivates you to keep going?
Honestly, it was almost on a whim! I didn’t realize what blogging was all about until I started seeing so many bloggers on Instagram! The more I saw them and followed them, the more intrigued I got and realized I’d love to do something like this! The other main reason I started to blog, was my love of writing. I’ve had a passion for writing since I was in middle school, but as I grew older, I didn’t have as much time to write for fun. But blogging has allowed for me to have a creative outlet and I love being able to write about topics that interest me! I’m motivated to keep going mostly because of my readers’ comments and feedbacks, and just love interacting with fellow bloggers! It’s like having a new group of friends on the internet!
- In 3 words, describe your style: Feminine, modest, modern
- Where do you see yourself/your blog in the next 6 months to a year (future of your blog)?
I hope to start other types of posts/sections on my blog. I’m actively thinking of new topics/sections to include on my blog, and hopefully it’ll be interesting for the readers. I also hope to have more and more contributors to my guest post section here (LINK), and hope to just collaborate with brands and bloggers even more as time goes on!
- Is there any advice you can give to anyone out there who may want to get into blogging?
GO FOR IT! Don’t worry about the # of followers you have when you start out, the most important thing is your content. As you grow your blog and your content, the followers will come naturally! Don’t forget to network, comment, and reach out to other bloggers. Speaking from my own experience, that’s the best way to make friends out in the blogging world and gain a slow but steady following!
- If you are marooned on an island, what is one product you can’t live without?
My iPhone! So I can use it to call someone to save me! 😛 Or take #selfies!
- Choose one product which you use in many ways.
That’s so tough! I don’t think there really is one product I use in many ways, I use products for their purpose, and don’t really use 1 product for multiple things….
- How would your friends/ other bloggers describe you?
I think they would describe me as responsible and friendly! I pride myself in my organizational skills and think I am quite responsible when it comes to knowing what action to take in particular situations. And I love meeting new people and getting to know others, so I definitely am friendly as well!
- Who are your top three favorite bloggers and why?
That is so tough! I think right now, and recently as I’ve gotten more into the blogging world, the 3 bloggers I look up to/love watching their videos/seeing their posts are these girls:
Dina Tokio—when I first started to watch her videos, I kind of found her annoying! But slowly she grew on me! Now as a new mom, she’s still at it! I love her videos and vlogs, because she’s quite funny and although some of her clothing style is a bit outrageous for me, she looks awesome in it!
Her blog : http://www.daysofdoll.com/
Her YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/dinatokio
Sazan Barzani—I love this girl! Her Instagram pics are to die for! Literally #goals! Her and her hubby (newlyweds), are the best Instagram duo! She also blogs + has a YouTube channel, and I love her bubbly personality which comes across in her pics and her videos! She also is younger, and her style + makeup looks are nice an natural, so I’m always trying to recreate some of her looks and seek inspiration from her style!
Her Blog: sazan.me
Her YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/SazanBarzani
Ameena (Pearl Daisy)—she is the most consistent hijabi blogger I’ve seen out there! Even with kids and 3 businesses of her own, she manages to blog post on a daily basis and has YouTube videos twice a week! I’m in awe by her constant creativity and how she can come up with so much blog content!

- What are the things you want to explore/ do in blogging which you haven’t done so far.
I’d love to work with more brands and do more posts based on their products and such. I’d love to do collaborations with beauty/jewelry brands and just grow and learn how brand collaborations work!
I’d also love to sort of rebrand/relaunch the design of my blog, because I think the current setup/theme of my blog doesn’t clearly define my blog or me very much, so I’m working on some projects to hopefully get a new ‘look’ very soon!
Hope you enjoyed reading our answers.Wish you an amazing holiday! 🙂
