Good evening guys. I hope that everyone is well! I wanted to start this blog post off by saying a huge thank you to all of you who are following my blog. I can’t believe that there are over a hundred of you signed up. Thank you so much. ♥️
I thought it was about time to do an FAQ post. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know I upload content quite frequently and I get quite a lot of DMs so I have put together a list of questions that have come up on more than one occasion. Here goes.
Is what you do online your full time job? No. I am a primary school teacher. I really enjoy creating content and writing blog posts but I also love my job.
How did you get through a broken engagement? What a question! For those of you who have read all my blog posts throughout that journey, you’ll know a little more in detail. The process of cancelling a wedding etc. was just a case of being organised. Everything else takes time and now I am happier than I have ever been.
Why did you start blogging and creating content? It was something I was always interested in doing. When my engagement broke down I decided to go for it. I write music and play the piano so writing words is something that comes naturally so I thought why not start a blog to document my journey and it helped me so much. I would recommend it to anyone – even if you don’t publish it online.
How does gifting work? This is a question I get asked a lot actually. There is no one size fits all for gifted items or working with brands. For some of my collaborations I have approached that brand but for others I was contacted via DM or email. If you want to start working alongside brands then just have that confidence and I only ever work with a brand if I am really passionate about it. It just makes the content and blog a lot more natural.
Do you dye your hair? I have done in the past but no. I don’t dye my hair.
What are you favourite makeup brands? I love L’Oreal and Iconic London. They are my two favourite makeup brands because I love a glowy finish and these brands do so many products to be able to achieve my desired look.
Where do you shop the most for your clothes? Not going to lie, Ebay! I am such an advocate for Ebay. I don’t think people understand how much money you can save using Ebay. You need to be smart about what you search for and recently I have switched to only buying brand new with tags items. Favourite brands are Marks and Spencers, Warehouse, Seasalt, Boden, Fat Face and a trusty old supermarket fashion brand! Don’t knock them until you try them.
Do you have any siblings? I have one taller younger brother. He’s amazing!
What is the nail varnish you always wear called? Opalescent 500 by ANNY. However, I can’t find it anywhere online or in the UK. Sorry guys! I will need a dupe soon so any heads up would be much appreciated.
What camera do you use? I have a Samsung Galaxy A50 phone and that’s all I use. I also use my trusty phone holder for my car to record videos sometimes. So glamorous I know!
How long have you been with your new partner for? It will be a year next month!
What do you like and dislike about social media? Instagram is such an amazing platform for connecting with other content creators. I have made such amazing online friendships with some really inspiring women. Having said that I absolutely hate people who are fake online and who have ulterior motives. Jog on if you aren’t visiting my feed for the right reason.
What are your worst habits? Playing with my hair! It’s such a bad habit. I am currently trying to grow the front bits out but I can’t stop touching them!! Any tips other than pinning them back, please let me know!
Thank you once again guys for all of your support. It means so much and I really love that you want to read my blog. If you haven’t done already please head over to my Instagram page @rebeccaavalentina and hit that follow button. Lots of love 😘
