1. Could you start by telling us a bit about yourself and your blog. I’m Emma, the Em behind Country Girl Em. I work full time as a social worker and blog in my spare time. My blog shares my interests and passions (outside of work) which is mainly beauty based, but I also blog about baking, food and my life. 2. How long have you been blogging for and what inspired you to start it? I’ve only been blogging just over 3 months now, so I am still a relative newbie to the wonderful world of blogging! I have been an avid reader of other blogs and watcher of YouTubers for a while and they inspired me to start my blog alongside my love of writing and wanting to have another interest outside of work. 3. What’s the best thing about having your blog channel? Connecting with other people who have similar interests and being part of an incredibly community of bloggers who are so supportive and welcoming, alongside finding out new ideas and new products to try! 4. What’s you’re top tips for budding bloggers? Go for it! 5. What does a normal day look like for you? I work long hours Monday-Friday and have a stressful and demanding job. When I get home I check my blog and catch up on other blogs. Weekends tend to be more relaxed and that’s when I plan, prepare and write my blog posts. 6. Who’re your biggest style influences? This is a difficult question as I am definitely not a fashionista. I am vertically challenged and on the curvy side of curvy so I do struggle to find fashionable flattering clothes. However I would say my biggest style influence is Kate Moss because I have followed her career since I was very young – I was fascinated by her and absolutely love her relaxed style. 7. Who are your favourite bloggers/vloggers? Well of course Emily Hearts! I also love Really Ree (especially her periscope and new in beauty YouTube videos), Fleur De Force, I Covet Thee, Essie Button, and of course Norfolk’s own Pixiwoo and Tanya Burr! 8. What are your three favourite beauty products right now? Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate, The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil. 9.What lip product have you got in your hand bag right now? Several… L’Oréal Infallible Gloss in ‘I Got The Power’, Bourjois Aqua Lacque in a peachy coral colour, Revlon Balm Stain in ‘Honey’ and an EOS lip balm in ‘blueberry’. 10.What are your three fashion essentials? I absolutely love handbags so a good bag is a definite essential. I also love nail polish and have quite an extensive collection and I do feel that a pop of colour on your nails can really sharpen a look! 11.What music are you listening to right now? At the moment I have been loving the new Kelly Clarkson album, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.
