5 Minutes with... Livymegs



For the last couple of months, I've had the pleasure of having two lovely ladies advertising on my sidebar. The first is Alexandra from the fab lifestyle blog Confetti Layers, but you'll actually find her in a post like this of her own very soon! The other lovely blogger, and the star of this post is the gorgeous Liv, who blogs at Livymegs. What sets Liv apart from the rest is the fact that she blogs a ton about university, sharing her experiences and tips, so if you're at uni right now, about to go or just considering it, you'll love her blog. If you've long graduated, don't fear, you'll still love her beauty and lifestyle posts.

Some of my favourite posts on Liv's blog include her Current Makeup Favourites (and not even because I'm fangirling over the beautiful YSL Rouge Volupté Shines). I also loved her NUXE: A French Discovery post as I'm a massive fan their Huile Prodigieux and their Reve de Miel Lip Balm is a complete holy grail for me! Liv's photography in these posts is stunning, with a beautiful soft focus look that works perfectly with the feminine feel of her blog header. I also wanted to quickly mention her brand new YouTube channel. If you didn't think Liv was the most lovely, genuine girl already, you sure will after watching her videos. She's absolutely gorgeous too!





WHEN DID YOU START YOUR BLOG?

I started my blog November 2015, so almost my first year anniversary! 



WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION FOR YOUR BLOG?

I love exploring, trying new things and I love writing - so after following other blogs for a few years I decided to start my own. I had just moved into halls at University and found I spent a lot of time in my room as I didn't get along with my flatmates very well (we all had different personalities). My boyfriend would come over at a weekend or I would go to him in Leeds, so he suggested maybe I start writing about the things we did at the weekend :-) My name is Olivia Megan - so Livymegs formed from that!


MOST POPULAR POST TO DATE?

This post is all about me moving into my new house and decorating my bedroom (which I absolutely adore!).


WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO ACHIEVE THROUGH YOUR BLOG?
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOUR BLOG A YEAR FROM NOW?

I would really like to go a blogger event and meet other bloggers. I'd love to make some friends I could keep for life! In a year... i'm not sure I see my blog anywhere different. I love writing my posts as it's something that I can look at when i'm having a down moment and smile. I've just started a YouTube channel, and i'm hoping to help people who are going to University and also ladies who suffer from PCOS as it's a journey i'm currently on and i've discovered a lot from my own research and experience. 


ARE THERE ANY PARTICULAR BLOGGERS THAT INSPIRE YOU?

Niomi Smart! I love her natural, classy approach to everything. Her YouTube videos are flawless and I love her style of writing, she is so genuine and honest. I can't wait to pick up a copy of her brand new cookbook Eat Smart in September. I feel like she has come such a long way in a few years through expressing her own passion for things.

WHERE DOES THE BLOGGING MAGIC HAPPEN?

The blogging magic happens at my home in a small countryside village in Lincolnshire. 



DESCRIBE YOUR BLOG IN 3 WORDS

Genuine, relaxed, informative. 


WHAT'S YOUR DESERT ISLAND BEAUTY PRODUCT?

Neal's Yard Remedies Rose and Mallow moisturiser, I couldn't survive without it!

Relaxed glamour. I love pairing a pair of washed out denim jeans with my favourite grey jumper, styled with simple silver jewellery from Daniella Draper and my favourite silver canvas trainers.


WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU'VE BEEN GIVEN?

Always do what makes you happy, no one else matters except you. 

Always have faith, if things seem rubbish - they will get better.

Always try your best at whatever challenges life faces you with.
