another week done and dusted. today we have a stunning sydney blogger who loves a good haul by the sounds of her blog name!
ABIGAIL – SHRINKINGWALLET
WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT IS YOUR BLOG NAME?
My name is Abigail and my blog name is Shrinking Wallet.
HOW’D YOUR BLOG NAME COME ABOUT?
I have absolutely no concept of the word “budget”, and find my wallet (or rather bank balance) shrinking almost immediately after I’ve been paid. Thank goodness for a husband that is extremely good with his money and budgeting, or else we might be living in a makeshift house made out of the packaging of my shopping!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR, WHERE DID YOUR PASSION COME FROM AND WHAT DO YOU BLOG ABOUT?
I have been blogging since April 2012. My passion comes from my love for makeup and beauty. As I’m not rich, I like to be extremely well informed before making purchases. As such, I rely heavily on the honest opinions of bloggers. Writing reviews on my blog is my way of contributing back to the beauty community.
WHAT HAVE BEEN SOME OF YOUR HIGHLIGHTS THROUGH BLOGGING EG. EVENTS YOU’VE ATTENDED, BRANDS YOU’VE WORKED WITH OR REACH A CERTAIN MILESTONE.
Meeting like-minded beauty lovers is definitely a highlight. I haven’t attended many blogger events (in fact, I have only been to one – IMATS, where I met the very lovely, Jasmine!). So I can’t wait to attend the Sydney Bloggers United AU event to meet more beauty bloggers! I’ve also recently reached 1000 instagram followers, which is very exciting.
(Note – these interview questions were conducted before the Sydney event.)
TELL US A QUIRK ABOUT YOU?
This is so random but I’m very particular with the direction in which my toilet paper roll must hang – which is OVER, not under.
