My friend Jamey came up with the great idea to praise your favorite blogger!
An easy way to find out about the blogs that bloggers read.
My first Praise the blogger is of course Jamey 🙂
- My sweet Jamey!! We have only known each other for a few years now, but I am so happy we have met. A real auntie to my girls, always making time to polish some nails, or watch the Voice together. We all love having you guys over.
So happy to see you started your own blog. We talked about it for a while now, and finally its there!! Beauty-unboxing.nl! I had no idea what that even meant, so here some questions to update the rest of the readers.
- Why did it take you so long?
I never really had time to sit down and think about what I wanted to write about. I was always busy with work and private stuff. But after a while I started to send parcels across the globe and was seeing a lot of unboxing video’s and I started thinking.. .Why not put all my swaps in writing and show the world how much fun it is! Maybe I can inspire people to do the same and make it better known.
- How did you handle people trying to bring you down and stop you on your way?
That’s a tough question. I think I just block it out. And if I need some advice I always turn to you lol!
- What is unboxing?
Unboxing means I open packages and review them. I do a lot of international make-up swaps. That means I make arrangements with some girls from all around the world and we shop for each other in our own country. This way I get to send stuff that other girls from for example America can’t get over there. And I receive stuff that I can’t get over here. And what I do is I write about what people send me.
- Any advice for new unboxers?
Make sure it’s more than just simple pictures of the treasures that you get. I always like to go a little deeper than that. I always like to do an interview with the person I’m swapping. And if you’re not camera shy it’s also really nice to unbox them through a youtube video. (I’m camera shy so I don’t do it yet lol)
- What is your goal?
My goal is to inspire people to get to know people from all over the world. You can see swapping like a new version of pen pals. We get to know each other’s traditions and beauty products.
