Bloggers Uncovered: Hannah from 'Away With The Fairies'

Hi Hannah! To start off with, why did you start your blog Away With The Fairies?
The main reason for starting my blog was because it's always been an aspiration of mine to become a beauty/fashion journalist, and I knew that starting a blog would be a great way of getting my writing out there. I also read lots of blogs prior to starting mine and wanted to be part of the fun!

Do your friends and family know about your blog?
Originally no, I'd only really told my sister about it, but now the majority of my friends and family know. They understand that I love writing so they're really supportive of it.

Do you think you'll still be blogging in 10 years time?
I really hope so! I love blogging and I think it would be weird not to be a part of this great community. It's also a great way of documenting things that are going on in your life, and I'd love to look back on it in 10 years time and look at all the (hopefully) interesting things I did!

Would you consider yourself good at HTML/CSS?
I am aware of it, and know a tiny bit about it, but I'm definitely no expert. I wouldn't say I was completely clueless though either.

Do you like to take part in the #bbloggers chat on Twitter?
I used to take part in the chat when it first began, but lately I've struggled to keep up with it. I think it is a great idea to bring bloggers together to discuss what we all love doing, but I do think that sometimes some of the discussions were a tad 'preachy preachy', when it is SO important in blogging to do your own thing, not what someone tells you to.

Have you ever been to a blogging event?
Yes, I've been to the Eyeko event and it was lovely meeting lots of my favourite bloggers! I had a lovely time and I hope I get invited to more in the future. I actually have a few events coming up which I'm sure I'll blog about.

Who are your favourite established bloggers?
There are so many! I love Pearls and Poodles, LLYMLRS, Zoella, Sprinkle of Glitter, The Beauty Sanctum... I could go on and on!

Who are your favourite new bloggers (under 18mnths)?
Milkteef, Ghostparties, I Covet Thee, Being Little (I think all of these are under 18 months?!)

What is your favourite post from your blog and why?
I'd say my most recent Disneyland posts, just because I love the photos so much and it makes me happy looking at them :)

Which camera/device do you use to take photos for your blog?
The majority of the time I use my Nikon D3000 SLR, but if I'm out and about I'm more likely to be using my Canon Ixus 115 HS.

Name one thing you like about blogging?
The fact that people are actually reading and commenting on my writing makes me very happy!

Name one thing you dislike about blogging?
I'd say I love pretty much everything about it, but if I had to say something I dislike, it would be the odd nasty comment you can sometimes get.

And a weird one, would you rather be a tiny rhino or a giant hamster? 
A tiny rhino, 'cause they're cute!

I'm so happy that Hannah agreed to take part in my interview series as I've always loved her blog. Although I'm not into fashion in the slightest I really enjoy her OOTDs, and she's crazily good at makeup. Did anyone notice from the photos above that she's into her coral/orange lips.. and that she pulls them off perfectly?
