The Blogger Interview Tag with Rachel!

Hi! How are you? Welcome to Touch Of Belle! Let's talk a little bit about your blog! Could you tell us a bit about yourself?
Hey there, my name is Rachel Farrell and vintage loving, tea drinking, book reading teen blogger from Ireland. I'm an aspiring journalist and stylist, so blogging is a great way to express my love for all things fashion and beauty! I'm also a self confessed shopaholic and nail art fanatic.

How old are you?
I'm 15 years old!

How and Why did you start your blog?
I started blogging a year ago, after reading numerous fashion and beauty blogs for years. I really wanted to practice my writing for future purposes and also share my love of fashion! As I progressed, so did my blog, and I'm pleased to say I was a finalist for Best Youth blog in the Blog Awards Ireland this year, which was a huge surprise! 
What's your favourite thing about blogging?
I love receiving the lovely comments people post on my blog. It really encourages me and has boosted my confidence alot. It makes me want to read more and make my readers happy! Writing is a passion of mine, so the fact that i can blog whenever I want on my little corner of the internet is great. 

What is your favourite post to write?
Thats a tough one.. either my outfit of the days or my nails!

How long have you been blogging for?
I created my blog in May 2012 however I didn't properly start blogging until around Christmas. So about 10 months.

If you could describe your style in one word, what would it be?

Where or who do you look to for style inspiration?
I look to fellow bloggers for inspiration, without doubt! The internet has a big influence. I also love tumblr and pinterest for outfit ideas. Alexa Chung, Marina Diamandis and Audrey Hepburn are where I get my ideas from, however I create my style myself.

What are your must have products?
 Nail polish and lipstick. I would die without them.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?
 [basically the same as my favorite thing about blogging above]

Finally, do you have any advice or helpful tips you could give to new bloggers just starting out?
 I would recommend using twitter, and participating in twitter chats, its great for networking! Try not to post generic posts. Be individual, take clear photos, spellcheck and BE YOU!
