Spotlight Blogger - Sugar & Silk

This week's Spotlight Blogger is Isabella from Sugar and Silk. This is one of my favourite blogs to follow as it is girlie and chic. Isabella blogs about a variety of topics from fashion and beauty to anything else in between.

1. Why did you decide to start your blog?
I had been watching You Tube videos for a while and I was absolutely addicted to the beauty community (I still am). I wasn't so sure about putting myself out on You Tube, but then I discovered the Blogging Community. I thought doing something like that would be such a fantastic thing to be part of, and there was so much I wanted to talk about and share with regards to beauty and fashion, that I realised that creating a blog was ideal. I also wanted to improve my writing, so blogging has really made a difference to that as well!

2. Did you follow any blogs before creating yours?
I didn't start following any blogs until I had started creating an account, but everyday I would check the blogs FleurdeForce, DollyBowBow and Zoella! They were all fantastically written with very in depth reviews and very impressive photos!

3. Favourite time of the day to write posts?
To be honest, I'd happily write blog posts all day! But if I had to pick a time, it would be early morning whilst munching on breakfast, or at night watching TV and sipping on some hot chocolate!

4. What do you think is the best thing about blogging?
The best thing about blogging in my opinion, is it alerting you on new products, inspiration for fashion, fun ideas try out, informative reviews, reading about the lives of other people and finding a place that you can share your passion amongst others.

5. What inspires you when it comes to your blog?
I really don't know as it can be absolutely anything! But one website that always gets my creative juices flowing is www.polyvore.com which is a website where you have the ability to make collages. The website provides you with millions of images of the most beautiful fashion, to beauty and random images to add a more creative spin to the sets you make! Something on that website will always inspire me!

6. Where are your favourite places to shop?
Primark, H&M, New Look and I love the jewellery from Topshop!

7. Has blogging changed the way you make purchasing decisions?
Definitely! Bloggers have always steered me in the direction of the best products on the market and they always provide such informative reviews that I know I can trust!

8. What is your all time favourite brand? (cosmetic, clothing or anything else)
Ooh, that's a tough one! Well it would probably have to be either Chanel, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, D&G, but of course they are completely out of my price range. Nevertheless, they really create the most beautiful, jaw-dropping fashion.

9. What is your favourite time of year and why?
Winter! I absolutely love to wear cosy jumpers, woolly hats, gloves, boots, seeing snow gracefully drifting in the air, hot drinks, Christmas trees and decorations, watching films, Christmas shopping-just everything! 

10. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
I hate to say it, but there are so many things I'd most like to change in the world. But there are some things that make me especially angry. First of all, homophobia. It disgusts me that homosexual people are still bullied, treated as different, can't be accepted in society and how people use it used as an insult which is completely awful. Secondly, smoking. I cannot think of a single reason why smoking is a benefit to people. It infuriates me that people would damage their bodies and cause harm to the people around them. And to be honest, there is nothing more unattractive than rotten teeth, straw like hair, and bad breath. Smoking is absolutely ridiculous and because of it, so much of our money must be used by the NHS because of the decision people make to smoke and destroy their health. 

Well on that sombre note, I hope you enjoyed reading my responses and again thank you so much for featuring me on your blog!
