It was awesome talking with Rebecca (@xorebeccalouise), an up-and-coming blogger and youtuber! We can't wait for you to read about her daily beauty routine, top IG inspo, and what she'd call her own music festival!
Tell us about what you do and why you love it.
I’m a California girl living in the British countryside so it’s fair to say I’m a square peg trying to fit in a round hole with regards to my surroundings and it’s rather the same story for my personality. Entering the world of blogging and social media, I can finally be the creative soul that is me, myself and I. As a Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle blogger I am talking all about the places I travel, the makeup I wear on my face, the clothes I wear and the food I eat. It’s my online journal where I get to show my perspective of the world, interacting with like-minded people as I go along, which I just love.
Where do you want to take your blog/personal brand in the next 5 years?
The dream would be to do this for a living…I have always been a creative soul but having gotten stuck in the traditional route in life, it’s taken me a long time to believe in myself enough to realise the dream that I could ever go it alone.
What’s your go-to-tool for your daily make-up routine?
The beauty blender, for sure. It’s all about that blend, blend, blend.
Coffee, tea, or wine?
None – Fruit infused water is my go-to drink, as boring as it sounds…but maybe a cocktail or two on the weekend.
What inspires you to get up in the morning?
The fact that we get a second chance at life, another day to challenge the status quo, another opportunity to cross something off the bucket list.
Who are your top 5 Instagram role models, and why?
If you had your own music festival, what would it be called and who would perform?
My taste in music is very eclectic, it varies depending on my mood so I guess I would have to call it Emoticon. YouMeAtSix would headline though, for sure.
If you had a time machine, where and when would you go and why?
I would have loved to have taken a ride on Concord before it retired, so maybe go back to those days. Whilst I’m there I would see the Space Shuttle take off and land. I’m a bit of a Space nerd.
Weirdest pick up line someone’s tried on you?
Thankfully I’ve been with my college sweetheart ever since so haven’t had to deal with the dating scene and those awful one liners that guys think are funny!
If your family members were animals, which would each of them be?
My Dad would be a sloth - slow moving and either eating or sleeping - He is the most chilled out person I know! My mum is the elephant that never forgets, and my sister is the cheeky monkey of the family.
Any pets? If so, tell us a cute/funny story?
My only pet was a rabbit called Heidi that I had when I was a kid. But I’m at that stage in my life where I couldn’t necessarily cope with a child right now, but maybe a dog…Pongo the Pug.
What’s your next theme on Instagram?
Well lately it’s been filled with snaps from my recent trip to Vegas for my birthday so I’m not sure how I can top that at the moment!
Do your friends steal your makeup routine?
I think if I’m being honest I have to steal from other people…I’m a creature of habit and usually stick with what I know…a matte base, bronzey eye and nude lip. I’m always in need of a new look to try.
Not an obvious choice but Drew Fuller, all day every day…tall, dark and handsome…he was an angel on the show Charmed and a soldier on the show Army Wives…enough said.
Do you have to do everyone’s makeup for Christmas photos?
I’m the odd one out in my family, so being the only “crazy beauty-obsessed, make-up hoarder,” I only have to worry about myself.
One thing you want your followers to know!
