Blogger Appreciation Award

Thank you so much to the awesome Christine from Starry Eyed Beauty* who awarded me with the Blogger Appreciation Award! I really enjoy doing these tags and seeing other bloggers' responses because it shows us the person behind the blog.

The Rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award with their blog link on your post. 
2. Answer the following 4 questions. 
3. Award the Blogger Appreciation Award to as many others as you'd like. 
4. Let the blogger know you've just awarded them. 
 The Questions: 
How long have you been blogging?
Come this September my blog will be two years old! It really only feels like I started blogging a week ago though! 
What are 1-2 reasons you started blogging?
I first started blogging because I enjoy talking about beauty. In real life I don't have many friends who are interested in the beauty or fashion communities so they don't understand what I do. I don't have people to talk to about new product launches and nobody seems to understand how there are an endless number of taupe shadows that I can justify owning. Blogging is a creative outlet where I take photos of everything and I write everything (not including very rare guest posts).
What type of blogs do you like to follow/read?
Most of the blogs I follow are beauty or fashion related but I like it when my favorite bloggers include bits of their real lives in their blogs. I have a bunch of food and cooking blogs bookmarked but I don't follow them religiously. 
What is one thing you would like to improve on as a blogger on your blog?
I would like to show more face of the days although I wear neutrals 95% of the time so that might get boring. I also want to show more "real life" swatches like blushes on my cheeks and lipstick on my lips rather than to swatch everything on the back of my hand only.
