BLOGS THAT BUZZ: Danner’s World

Welcome back to another segment of Blogs That Buzz – where I bring you the blogs that have got me HOOKED.

To check out my debut BTB post featuring stunner Diana Lupica, click here (insert link to BTB #1).

Today, we hear from Dani – the one and only, honest, down-to-earth, charming Irish lass by the name of Danielle behind the blog Danner’s Worldwho posts beauty and lifestyle stories, but here’s a twist.

Danielle is publicly sharing her story of her battle with her followers. In fact, she has a page entitled Mental Health.

I have to say, that when I mindlessly stumbled onto Dani’s blog, I felt a connection. Here was another beauty and lifestyle blogger (like me), but like me, Danielle also struggles with depression and I was so inspired by her explanation of the terrible illness and felt it to be so like my own story, that I was compelled to comment and ask if she’d like to be featured in Blogs That Buzz.

Without any further ado, may I welcome to the stage … Miss Danielle – ‘blogger, student, music lover and mental health activist here to share her thoughts with the world’. (Dani’s bio statement).

1. What prompted you to begin your blog?

Being told at 18 that you are depressed is a really big thing, it caused me a lot of confusion and sadness and at that time I had nobody who could relate to how I was feeling, nobody to talk to about it so I felt lost and alone. Feeling like that was very hard so after thinking about it for a very long time I knew I wanted to take what I was feeling and share it with others so they would not feel the way I was and that they  could relate and feel like they were not alone.

2. What is one goal you have for your blog?

I would love to reach 1000 followers. That would be a huge success and a big goal of mine. Hopefully one day I can achieve it.

3. Why do you blog?

It’s a hobby of mine now since I started to talk about other things as well as mental health like beauty and lifestyle. If I have found a product that I love and just want to share with everyone then it is such a good way to get your message across or if I have found something I don’t like I can share that with people who have the same interests as me, it is great.

4. What is the story behind the name of your blog?

Danners World. I wanted to keep it simple but true to myself. With Danners being my nickname for as long as I can remember, it just seemed to fit; that it would be like a little welcoming into my world and how I see things.

5. How long have you been blogging for?

I started blogging in June 2014 however I stopped for almost 8 months as I was back at college and was not sure what direction I wanted to go in with my blog. I started back blogging in April, I changed up my blog and what I wanted it to be about and  I moved my blog to WordPress and have been much happier since doing so.

6. Which blogs are your favourites to read or even stalk?

I don’t read that many blogs! I enjoy Irish blogger FacesByGrace and sometimes I stumble across random blogs when I am on WordPress. I don’t really have any blogs that I religiously check I am more inclined to watch YouTube videos that are beauty related!

7. What is your top tip for believing in and being confident within yourself?

If you want something hard enough you will get it. You are the only you there is in this world and instead of hating that we should embrace it and know  that we are who we are suppose to be and there is no other like us out there and basically just know that you’re a bloody good person who deserves to have a good life!

8. What do you do to recover after having a bad day?

I usually go for a nice hot bath and then chill out in bed watching Once Upon A Time. A little chocolate usually helps the situation too!

9. What advice would you give to your teenage self?

The world does not revolve around whether a boy likes you or not, you need to like yourself first.

10. Quote you like to live by?

Blowing out someone else’s candle won’t make yours shine any brighter!

11. What is your go-to lipstick?

I am not much of a lipstick-wearer, but I usually go for a dark lip usually by Wet’N’Wild as I love their lipsticks!

12. What is on your wish list?

I want a bass guitar and a ukulele so bad!!! Totally not beauty related but I am obsessed with music and learning new instruments!

13. Blush or bronzer?

Bronzer 100%. I am not much of a Blush woman!

14. Brush or Beauty Blender?

Beauty Blender, such a good investment!

15. Foundation or BB cream?

Foundation, always!!! I love a full coverage look.

16. Harry Potter or Twilight?

Harry Potter, I adore it. I am still not over it ending!

17. Fave artist or band?

5 Seconds of Summer! My absolute faves. ❤

18. Celebrity Crush?

Michael Clifford from 5 Seconds of Summer, laaaaaaaaaaave him too much!!! 

19. Your number one song?

The Only Reason! – 5SOS.

20. As you head into summer, what are your 5 makeup essentials?

Mascara, tinted moisturiser, cocoa brown tan, Rita Ora’s Rimmel nail varnish and cocoa butter!

BLOGS THAT BUZZ: Dream and Dazzle

Welcome to a brand new series on my blog, called Blogs That Buzz. I have taken my inspiration from Tried and Tested Blog‘s The Beauty Behind The Blog – Blogger Q & A series AND Confetti & CurvesBehind The Blog.

So, without further ado, may I introduce you to Miss Diana Lupica, an absolutely gorgeous girl – both inside and out – who writes Dream and Dazzle

1. What prompted you to begin your blog?

Well, I have always loved makeup (and all things beauty) and writing … so a blog allowed me to do both.

2. Why do you blog?

Besides my passion for writing, I think having a blog is a great experience to have, especially when I am studying Media and I kind of need that experience – but it’s still definitely a hobby.

3.What is the story behind the name of your blog?

I knew my name had to include “dreamer”, it’s been my username a while ago. Then, I thought having another word that starts with “d” as well would be cool, so this is how I thought of “dazzle” haha!

4. How long have you been blogging for?

Since the 15th of February – such a newbie!

5. Which blogs are your favourites to read or even stalk?

It’s cheesy and predictable, but yours is definitely one of my most favourite blogs! I recently discovered Valentina and been stalking her blog as well. But there are so many amazing blogs out there, I always try to read and like the posts in my feed – it inspires me.

6. You have just woken up and have realised that you have just 15 minutes before you have a job interview. You limit yourself to a 3-minute makeup routine. Which products do you use?

A job interview?! That would probably never happen in real life, because I would wake up 4 hours early just to be safe hahaha! But if it did happen, I would apply foundation (Rimmel Lasting Finish), mascara is a must and the one I love at the moment is L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara. Maybe I would throw in my bag a concealer (Collection Lasting Perfection) and a powder (Rimmel Stay Matte) in hope that I can apply them on the tube.

7. You are given a warning that a bomb is going to drop on your home and you are limited to taking just 2 makeup products – no skincare items – with you. Which are they and why?

Oh dear… I have problematic skin so my face really needs its coverage. I think it would have to be foundation (Rimmel Lasting Finish) and a powder (Rimmel Stay Matte). As long as I don’t scare people off with my hyperpigmentation, I am fine!

8. Lipsticks or lip balm?

This question puts me in difficulty. But I’m going to say lip balm, because I use it way  more often than lipsticks.

9. Blush or bronzer?

Bronzer – a girl must have chiseled cheekbones!

10. Brush or sponge?

Brush.

11. Foundation or BB cream?

Definitely foundation.

12. Harry Potter or Twilight?

Harry Potter.

13. Fave artist or band?

I can’t choose only one! I love lots of very different music genres, but The Weeknd is always my number one artist. Then, Lana del Rey, The Neighbourhood and Imagine Dragons are other obsessions of mine.

14. Celebrity Crush?

I don’t even know these days. But it might be a tie between Jensen Ackles and Daniel Radcliffe.

15. Your number one song?

I’ve been obsessing over Tame Impala’s “Let it happen” song like crazy recently.

16. What is one goal you have for your blog?

To be consistent!

17. As you head into summer, what are your 5 makeup essentials?

Bronzer – I do need a new one, since I’ve used the bronzing powder from H&M for too long now!

Highlighter – Physicians Formula in Vegas Strip

A gold eye liner – By Terry in Festive Gold

Gold again, but in nail polish! (I know it’s not makeup, but it’s a must)

Orange Lipstick – Maybelline’s ColorSensational in Electric Orange

18. Your number one lipstick?

MAC’s Plumful – goes with every look! (it’s also too expensive not to be my favourite)

19.Your number one *’lifesaver’ lip balm? (*read: lip balm that you could not live without)

I am still on a hunt for that one… but until then, the Burt’s Bees lip balm will do!

20. Quote you like to live by?

“Worry is a misuse of imagination.” – Dan Zadra

So, now that you’ve fallen in love with Di like the rest of us, send her some cyber luurve!
