Yet another fabulous giveaway!
You’re so generous, Cat!
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 World, who 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!

Even when her heart,
her soul, her body was enveloped in flame, it kept burning.
Because love is always smoldering.
Because love is eternal.
She knew from that moment.
She knew from the first time that her eyes met his.
Those piercing, sapphire eyes that clawed their way into her soul.
And found their nest.
And found their home.
His voice mesmorised her.
That voice that strode.
That voice that waltzed.
That voice which swept along at that perfect pace.
It never stumbled or tumbled.
It never faltered.
It was just soft.
It was just smooth.
It was just heaven.
It was just his.
This is the story of when I fell in love for the first and only time … This is written and told by me – Bea.
His eyelashes looked as if they could fly away if they wanted to.
However, something kept them there.
It was not gravity, nor was it the stiflingly heavy, humid air.
Nothing and everything, kept those eyelashes fluttering against the boy’s pale soft skin.
Those lush, gorgeous lashes would never desert me, until the conclusion of the year 2013, when I turned 14.
I first met this angel-like creature when I was moved up to Year 1, in Term 2 of 2006. He had platinum blonde hair, that tended to flop across part of his forehead. But what I loved the most was his picturesque, piercing blue eyes. They were sharp and unforgettable and I frequently got lost in them.
This is the story of when Bea and Daniel fell in love … This is written and told by Death.
It was his eyes that she noticed first. Those startling blue eyes that many would kill for. Eyes usually don’t mean anything to me – they are simply what you see with. However, even I had a soft spot for those eyes.
His eyelashes brushed his eyelids and seemed to tango across his face. One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.
Always moving, always in synch. Girls chased those dancing lashes, but the boy never even glanced at the girls. The tango eyelashes refused to dance with anyone but Bea. They were made for her.
But more importantly, that boy would part with anything for that Bea. He would give his soul for her.
Ironically, the first thing that Daniel noticed about Bea was her eyes. They were blue. No, green. No, hazel. While her eyes changed colour through the day, his love for her never changed. It never wavered. It simply was.
He was sucked into those eyes, utterly and completely. His mind memorised the shape, colour and emotion of her eyes. He even marvelled at the two crimson dashes in her left eye. He’d heard that if you had marks in one eye, that person was going to have twins.The boy hoped and wished that they would be his.
