Hope everyone has had a lovely week so far! Today we are bringing you another BLOGGER POWR post featuring the lovely Maira at Hope you enjoy reading her answers to the questions! 

Blogging and me! 

- How would you describe your blog in a few words?
LoveFromMaira is a little slice of my life, filled with all things beauty, a little bit of lifestyle and things that I’m enthusiastic about such as health and well-being. 

- Which blogpost, that you have uploaded, is your favourite?
My ‘Bedside Beauty Essentials’ post is a very popular one, however my personal favourite is my ‘Pathways to Happiness’ one from last year.

- How long have you been blogging?
I created my blog in February of 2016, so over a year now.

- What's your favourite part of blogging?
This is a hard question to answer because there’s so many things I enjoy about blogging. I’m truly thankful for the wonderful people I have had the pleasure of meeting and I also love having a corner of the internet all to myself, where I can be myself and that there are other people who appreciate my content. 

- What is your blogging method? (E.g. do you take photos before writing up your post?) 
I’m more of a writer than a photographer, so I tend to write up several blog posts when I’m bursting with inspiration and take my photos accordingly - although, I will admit that I can get a little lazy with taking photos because I’m not the best at it! It’s something I really want to improve on, and it will take some time. When I first started blogging, I had a routine of uploading two to three times a week. However, this quickly became an impossible task because firstly, life and secondly, majority of my blog posts are beauty product reviews and testing out products requires a lot of time before producing a final verdict. 

- What advice do you give to new bloggers to stand out in the crowd?
It can be difficult finding your place in the blogging community, as although a generally very welcoming and friendly place, it can be easy to get lost in the sea of marble and rose-gold. I would say, as cliche as it may be, be yourself because that’s what makes you unique. In addition to that, if you really enjoy what you do, that tends to shine through your writing and from what I’ve seen, that’s what makes a blog successful…and I measure success by the engagement and positive feedback I receive, as opposed to counting numbers. 

- What are your favourite blog posts to create?
I do enjoy writing beauty product reviews, but they can become monotonous very quickly, therefore I enjoy writing other kinds of posts to break it up a little. For example, the ‘Reverse Bucket List’ - any kind of ‘tag’ post or something of a more personal nature.

About me: 
- How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Resilient, Ridiculous, but Loving :)

- What is your favourite thing to do to relax? 
Nothing beats fresh bed sheets, a bubble bath, face mask, candles and a good book!

- Name 3 things you couldn't live without!
My mum, cold water, and a good skincare routine.

- Do you have any bad habits?
Oh yes, Im one of those people who used to have a chair in the room which would quickly pile up with clothes. Now that I don’t have a chair anymore, I’ll create a pile straight on the floor. To be fair, I don’t have a wardrobe in my room so after a long day, it can be a little inconvenient but no excuses, I’m working on it! 

- What has been your proudest moment so far?
The things I’m most proud of relate to my health condition, which has been a large obstacle in my life and continues to be. Despite the hardships it has caused, I’m continuing to strive to achieve everything I have always dreamed of. I know that sounds very vague, but for example, my attendance at school was poor because I would often be bedridden but I did not let that stop me from reaching for A’s and A*’s and graduating university in a subject I love.

- What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love reading crime/thriller fiction, finding new places to explore, and getting creative with writing and crafts.

- What are your future aspirations in life?
I still dont know what Id like to do in terms of career, but what I do know is that I hope to be healthy, financially stable, with a loving family (and a cat or two), to be able to give back something good to the world, and make my mother happy. 

- Name three things that never fail to make you smile.
The positive and supportive people in my life, a babys laugh, animals. 

- Confession time! What is your most embarrassing moment?
Oh gosh. I was in year 7, first time wearing a training bra. It was dance class, and we were all in little groups rehearsing our pieces before having to perform in front of everyone. During rehearsal, whilst I was really feeling myself (think Hanna from Pretty Little Liars), my friend was calling my name until I stopped - with there being huge mirrors in the room, all I remember is seeing that my training bra has popped off and was now resting on my neck! I’m not sure if anybody else saw what happened, but that was my most embarrassing moment. 

A very big thank you goes out to Maira for getting involved with today's BLOGGER POWR! Make sure you all go and give her a little follow on her Twitter to stay up to date with all her latest posts! 

Until next time,
