I found it really hard to stick to five blogs, but I do like to read a good mixture of blogs from beauty, fashion, lifestyle, cooking, mummy and baby and a few more besides

2. List Your 5 most read blog posts in 2013

3. Name one blog you wish you had found sooner

Stacey over at Expat Make-up Addict - OMG does Stacey have a lost of products to die for and I am always insanely jealous of the hauls she does especially the Marc Jacobs and the frequent MAC posts which make me want to walk into the store and buy everything, yet I own nothing MAC.

4. Your favourite blog post of 2013 

Beautyqueenuk appears in The Sun Newspaper is the one I am most proud of because Inhibitif and Deciem, the company behing Inhibitif gave me a wonderful opportunity twice - one was appearing in The Sun and the other was appearing on the product packaging which you can see HERE

5. What would you like to improve (if anything) on your blog next year?

Photographs. When I look at mine compared to other bloggers, I realise how poor mine are. So I am definitely in need of a new camera.

6. Name one blog you have a blog crush on

Miss Makeup Magpie - I love everything about this blog from the design, the photos and the fonts to the actual posts themselves

7. How often do you post? 

At the minute I post daily although I am not committing to doing that all of the time, just whilst I enjoy doing it.

8. Share your first post of 2013

Here it is - First Post

9. Name one thing you would be doing if you weren't typing this post right now.

Reading other blogs or finishing a blog post of my own that I am halfway through writing or reading on my Kindle as I have done all the housework that needs doing for now and I am at home and not at work

10. What have you loved the most about blogging this year?

I've enjoyed gaining a new hobby that I never thought I would enjoy as well as finding loads of really interesting blogs to read.  I have also met some really lovely Bloggers since I started doing this and have enjoyed meeting up with them.  Not forgetting the introduction to some wonderful brands that I perhaps would have never discovered on my own.
