Thank you so much guys for the nominations!

Since I was nominated by four amazing people I will be answering all their questions. If in case any question repeats of I found it similar then I will be combining them! I had a lot of fun answering all their questions 😎
So here we go!
♢What do you think is the most effective form of social media to promote your blog?
According to me the most effective way to promote a blog is via Instagram. I think a lot many of the famous blogger rose from Instagram because it is visual! Few words and lots of pictures! They do the talking and besides that you can post videos as well.
(P.S. I’m on insta! Follow me @simply_shaz)
♢How long did it take ypu to hit the 100+follwers/likes mark? And what tips do you give other bloggers to get there?
I don’t actually remember that but I guess I hit the 100 follower mark in around 3 months after I started the blog. The only tip I would give to other bloggers out there is that they should keep on posting regularly that is the only way .
♢What is the most read blog post that you have?
Its the Dupe that! | Kylie Lip Kit

Right now the top 3 songs are:
1. Hymn for the weekend by Coldplay
2.Good for you by Selena Gomez ft. ASAP Rocky
3. Yalla by Inna
♢Who is your favourite cartoon character?
I love ShinChan! He’s naughty and nice. Btw ShinChan is a Japanese cartoon which airs in India as well.
♢What do you do to relax after a hard day?
I usually lie on my bed listen to some music and read blogs! That helps a lot.
♢What is your one essential you have to put on or take or do everyday?
It has to be a lip balm. My lips get chapped so fast I can’t survive without a lip balm baby lips being my absolute favourite.
♢What do you like doing on a lazy day?
I like taking a nice nap and watching movies 😝
♢What is your favourite simple recipe?
Its called crispy corn. Its basically lightly fried boiled American corn with spices! Its simple and tastes fantastic.
♢What is your favourite category?
My favourite category has to be beauty. I am obsessed with makeup.
♢If you could travel to one place now where would you go?
Maldives!!!!!!! I love the turquoise blue waters.Even looking at it is soo relaxing in itself. It is serene and is also away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
♢Have you ever left a mean comment of a video or a blog? What would you say to people who do?
Never! I feel everyone out there who posts a video or a blog takes a lot of effort and by that I mean seriously alot of effort is taken in editing a video or even a post. Posting mean comments discourages the person. If someone doesn’t like a blog or a video instead of posting mean comments just don’t comment at all! If you feel that there could be some improvements just politely say it instead of just writing nasty and rude comments because it is a form of bullying. Also everybody has different tastes and likes. What one likes the other may not, but that doesn’t mean that you write anything. I strongly believe in the quote “Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you ”
♢What is your favourite beauty brand?
I don’t own a ton of a makeup products and most of it is basically drugstore. So I would say that currently it is Maybelline as they have some really good stuff at affordable prices!
♢Who is your favourite YouTuber and blogger?
Well…this one’s really difficult to answer! Everyone is different from the others. But if I had to pick one that would be Shannon from Shaaanxo
And my favourite blogger is Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad!
♢How long have you been blogging?
I started in July last year that is July 2015.
♢How and when did you come up with the idea if starting a blog?
I used to read a lot of beauty blog blogs before actually starting mine. I was so fascinated by the blogging world so I decided why not start my blog! I did a bit of research how to set up a blog and this happened last year in May and June.
♢The best place for scoring shopping bargains you frequent?
I don’t go to a particular place for shopping as far aa clothes are considered. If I like something anywhere then I buy it. For makeup I usually do online shopping. Amazon is an amazing place to get bargains for beauty products!
♢The best present to get you would be?
Ahh!! I love presents🎁 Well the difficult part is that I can’t decide on one but definitely anything related to makeup would make me very happy:mrgreen:
♢One travel tip you live by
Always carry a first aid kit with you and also some basic antibiotics. It has always helped me a lot. Once I had a reaction due to the excessive amount of chlorine in the swimming pool. But thankfully I had my medicines with me😌
♢What does the last text you sent say?
Its morning here in India while I am writing this so it was a good morning message.🌄
