Meet The Blogger Series - Interview 32

Wednesday, 10 August 2016

 I have decided to start a new series here on Sunshine Sarahxo after meeting so many lovely bloggers on Twitter I would like to get to know them. So I am going to try to recruit as many as I can as I think everyone deserves a chance to be in the spotlight. =)

 Q1: Hello there, nice to have you here on Sunshine Sarahxo! Please could you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your Blog:

Thank you so much for having me! I'm Charlotte and I blog over at Colours & Carousels. It's basically just an extension of my life, with lots of cats, clothes and cakes alongside my typical sarcastic humour!

Q2: At what point did you decide to make a Blog and share it with the world??

Hah. Well, I decided to make my blog five and a half years ago now (whaaaat?!?!) but I didn't share it with the world until I discovered Twitter about a year later, then I took the plunge to share it on my personal Facebook about two years ago. I was reading a lot of blogs at the time and as a shy, awkward teenager the idea of being able to share my thoughts and feelings - as well as my love of shopping - on a platform that was somewhat hidden at the time really appealed to me!

Q3: How would you describe your writing style? Has it changed over time at all?

I've always loved to write and I like to think that my writing style shows off my personality. I'm sarcastic by nature, and I probably try a little bit too hard to be funny, but at the end of the day I only write about things I'm passionate about and I hope that comes across! I don't think it's changed drastically since I started, but I've definitely developed it as I've grown. I was only 15 when I started my blog, so I like to think I've found my voice since then.

Q4: Was there anyone in particular who inspired you? Which Bloggers do you emulate?

At the time I was reading a lot of personal fashion blogs, such as LLYMLRS, Gem Fatale, Hannah Louise F and From Gem With Love. I still read a lot of the same blogs today and they inspire me continually! I try to be my own person as much as possible, but with so many amazing blogs out there it's hard not to be influenced by them in some way. I look up to bloggers who are honest & relatable, like Hannah Gale, so I'd say they're my biggest source of inspiration at the moment!

Q5: Do you have anything in the pipeline on the Blog which you are particularly excited about?!

Ooooh lots of things! I'm always planning away behind the scenes and have a few projects on the go at the moment. Right now, I'm most excited for the return of my Burgerthon Series which took a break over the last few months, as well as a possible refresh of my design that I've been working on for a while now.

Q6: Does anyone else know about your Blog? What do they think about it??

I feel like most people I know are aware of my blog now, and a lot of them don't really *get* it. I can understand why it would seem odd to them though! The majority of my friends and my family are all really supportive and they love getting involved which makes me very happy.

Q7: Are you obsessed with Lush!?!? If YES what is your favourite product?!

Oh my god, absolutely! I love love love The Comforter bubble bar and shower cream, but also think that the Grease Lightning spot treatment is a total life saver too.

Q8: Has your Blog helped you in other areas of life?!

Undoubtedly so. I used to be painfully awkward and really shy, I had no confidence in myself and just didn't feel like what I said really mattered. Starting my blog has turned my life around, helped me make amazing new friends, learn new skills and ultimately learn to believe in myself a bit more. 

Q9: What is it that makes you so fabulous?!

Hahaha, I wish I knew ;)

Q10: Finally, can you recommened anything to us today!? (Skincare/Beauty/Tv

Show/DVD/Music/Food Item...anything!)

Where to begin?! Okay... Everyone needs to watch House because Hugh Laurie is amazing. 

So that concludes our 'Meet the Blogger' for today! Thank You so Much for taking the time to answer these questions today, much appreciated!
