The first of many posts to come...

Hello Lovely People,

Here I am, finally creating a blog! I have been wanting to start one for a little while now as I have found that making videos is very time consuming and I don't really have a lot of time to consume with my current schedule of 2 jobs and a makeup course (so clearly the most obvious thing to do is add more things to my workload, duh!) I will of course be continuing to make videos, but I thought for the times when I am busy I can at least post something before I go to bed so you don't all begin to suffer from separation anxiety (...my jokes will get better in time I promise).
I must warn you all that my writing skills are about as good as (insert metaphor here) , but I will do my best communicate at a level that is 'mildly' interesting for you all :)

I guess my main purpose for this blog is to share with you lovely people more beauty related things than I can on YouTube. It takes me on average about 3-5 hours to make each video you see on my channel (some can take much, much more), as I have to set up my lighting, film, edit, make a thumbnail, write a description and product listing, source royalty-free music and then upload the finished video. By creating this blog, I hope that I will be able to share more content, more frequently. Also I spend my life savings on a good camera a few years back (this has happened twice, might I add - dam 'photography' stage!)  which doesn't have a 'video' setting so I haven't really used it and I feel like I may actually get some use out of it with this blog (fingers crossed).

Although the name of my YouTube channel and this blog is 'Makeup With Poppy', I don't want to just stick with makeup products, but venture further into the beauty world, hopefully expanding to haircare, skincare and fashion (maybe even a little bit of lifestyle chucked in there if you're lucky). 

Please let me know in the comments below if there is anything in particular that you would like me to post. My ideas so far have included the following:

  • FOTD (face of the days)
  • What's in my makeup bag?
  • Hauls
  • Monthly Favourites (Beauty & Non-Beauty)
  • Product Reviews
  • Tutorials
Please let me know if you have any suggestions, I love hearing from you guys :)
