meet the sponsors :: jessica (+ a benefit giveaway!)

miss jessica here introduced herself to me a few months back on twitter, and sucked me in by telling me how fab she thought my blog was. well, needless to say, that will always make me like you! not surprisingly, it wasn't too long after that that she popped up over there on the old side bar of glory as a bonafide sponsor! i've had the pleasure of her company for almost a whole month now, and yet, she's not yet seen her own 15 minutes of fame. so, today we end that. as is customary with my gorgeous sponsors, jess here is about to share her innermost thoughts on being a blogger... are you ready for that? take it away jess...

So I'm Jessica. I have read and followed Erica's blog for a few months now and enjoyed all her quirky outfit combinations and lifestyle posts so much that I decided to sponsor her blog and appear on her sidebar. Hopefully a lot of you guys have been over to check me out already but if not read on! 

why did you start blogging?
I started blogging to share my love of fashion, beauty and lifestyle with other like minded people and also to belong to something. The beauty/fashion/lifestyle community is full of lovely people and I wanted my own slice of it. I've had two blogs previously, one i started whilst studying textiles which was strictly fashion and unfortunately never really took off (i think i had under 10 followers for months), i admitted defeat and started another about my horse and our adventures... I soon got bored of that and had a break but still read a lot of blogs on Beauty AND fashion as well as lifestyle and February of this year i decided to try it again and I am HOOKED.  

what are your blogging essentials?
I don't have a big expensive camera unfortunately, so my iphone is my blogging essential. It keeps me informed via twitter, allows me to take photos to feature on my blog and I can blog on there using wonder forests amazing BLOGgo app. 

what's the best thing that's happened to you since you started your blog?
There are many good things that have happened since starting this blog, talking to many different bloggers from all over the UK and some in America is pretty cool. Being invited to my first blogging event this week was pretty exciting, I cannot attend due to work commitments but it still got me very excited! I have also been contacted by a beauty company who want to send me 12 of their products to review! So its all quite exciting for a newbie like me! 

where do you draw inspiration from?
Mostly from thoughts and feelings that i have at the time and also from other peoples blogs, most definitely, I think everybody has seen a post and thought 'oh I want to make my own twist on that'. I also watch a lot of beauty videos on youtube, I'm not a youtuber myself but I really do get ideas for make up looks etc from youtube.  

if you could take over anyone's blog, whose would it be and why?

If I could take over anyones blog, and magically turn into them as well it would have to be Tanya Burr. I know shes well known, but i actually really love her! I think shes the sweetest little thing, and so beautiful. However, the background of her blog really annoys me, I'd love to give it a re-jig!

what three things can't you live without?
Phone, Car, Laptop. First world problems ay!

Now, I've been sponsoring Erica's blog for a month, I wanted to properly introduce myself to her lovely followers and do a giveaway for you all! My blog is centered around Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle posts and I like to think they all tie together. I blog about my outfit choices, review and recommend beauty products and talk about lifes little thrills and spills. I enjoy reading blogs from all three categories, and I hope you will enjoy my blog as much as you enjoy being erica! 

Now for the interesting bit: The Giveaway! I am giving away to one lucky person a brand new, unused, Benefit Gorgeous Georgia Palette. This palette was limited edition and is no longer available. The palette consists of a 'Georgia' illuminating powder, 'I think I love you' lipstick, 'me, myself and i' eye shadow and a 'groundhog day' eyeshadow. This palette was retailing at around £25 when I received it, but it is not really my colour combo at all so why waste it when i can give it away! 

Thank you for taking the time to read and good luck in my giveaway! (open internationally!)
