Looking over Kyiv from May 2017

Since I started my blog in 2008 I have received a few questions that perhaps I don't touch upon much in my posts, and that's why like every other blogger it made sense to start a FAQ tab. But don't worry if you miss this, I promise I'm nice and won't snap at you to read them before you ask any questions! In fact, I love nothing more than connecting with my readers and finding more about YOU so please do get in touch! I've actually enabled comments for this page, so if you don't want to email me, just leave any questions below and I will edit them in. You can also find me on Twitter and Instagram.

Q. How tall are you/what clothes size are you?

I am worringly small in height! I am literally just about 5ft! If anything I seem to shrink yearly haha. In terms of the clothes or fashion items you see on this blog most my clothes are UK size 6/8 (so US size 2/4, EU 32/34) depending on style etc.

Q. Are you a natural redhead?

100% YES! I have never, ever let a touch of hair colour touch my head. I adore being a redhead. I hate how redheads are victimised because it's the most beautiful thing to have, and I wouldn't swap it, or change it for the world.

Q. What camera do you use? 

From January 2012 all my photos are now taken with the Canon EOS 600D or simply my iPhone 6s. From November 2017 I use the Olympus Pen E-PL8.

Q. Where can I buy Betsey Johnson from in the UK? 

Betsey Johnson's London shop sadly shut down earlier in 2012. I now have to get my friend in the USA to get things sent to me but I have found a few genuine things on eBay but be VERY careful as fake Betsey Johnson is all over Ebay and if you see some earrings for 99p be very cautious. TK Maxx also has the odd thing.

Q. What is your shop, and what do you sell?

My shop is called Beauxoxo I make and sell hair accessories! You can visit my shop here but for updates, I have a Facebook,  Twitter and Instagram page. Outside of Beauxoxo I also have a sister business called Little Beauxoxo selling handmade children's hair accessories and I also am a craft and art writer.

Q. I've just set up a shop, how do I get sales?

I get a lot of questions about people setting up their own crafty businesses and wanting advice. I am a little cautious to give advice at this moment as I feel I haven't been working on it long enough to be an 'expert' however I would advise you to create a brand YOU and for key success on Etsy and similar list lots of items with beautiful photos. Also, never, ever give up and budget, budget, budget ;).

Make Up/Hair/Beauty Related 

Q. What make up and foundation do you use for your pale skin? 

I love through blogging that I have found other girls who struggle to find makeup to match their porcelain complexions. It can be really hard to find something that won't make us orange, and trust me when I say that I've tried everything because I practically have! I currently love the Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation SPF 15 in the shade Porcelain. It's my favourite thing in the world and also amazing for travel! It doesn't oxidise on my pale skin and looks flawless always.

Q. What products do you use to maintain red hair?

My red hair seems to naturally change in shade according to the season! In summer it can be quite light and in the winter it gets much darker. I currently love and use the Klorane hair range. I love the Colour Enchancing shampoo with pomegranate and always stock up when I'm in France! I also use lots of deep conditioners on my hair. The Kao Essential Ultra Honey and Shea Butter mask is one of my all-time favourites! I have a ye olde review right here and you can purchase it here. As well as that I find the Inner Me multi vitamins extremely beneficial and take them every single day.
