I'm a mom and a beauty lover. I incorporate beauty into my everyday life. Words can be beautiful too.
Crystal, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Blogger?
I've always loved writing and growing up would create my own stories. From there I've always seen it as an outlet and love to share what I've learned or my opinion. By creating an Instagram blog, it has allowed me the flexibility to blog as short or as long as I see fit and on the go. Sometimes a picture does say it all. My passions have always been beauty and fashion, and I hope to have a career doing what I love.
Who is your inspiration in life Crystal? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration in life is to enjoy it while I'm here and not take one day for granted. What keeps me inspired is other beauty professionals and the love of fashion and the beauty industry. I try to stay connected as much as possible and educate myself on the past as well as the future of the beauty industry.
We all make mistakes Crystal; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Blogger; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I think that as adults things can always be solved respectfully and I try to go to the person directly if not I've always looked to people above to guide me in the right direction.
Crystal, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Blogger, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
I look into the solution and what they are looking for me to accomplish. What's the bottom line? Sometimes making a list helps to keep me focused and helps me to prioritise.
Please tell us, Crystal, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Blogger?
I've had to take myself out of distracting situations. Turning off the phone and social media is hard, especially when they are used as resources but I work my best under pressure. This is a time when a list comes in handy.
Crystal, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I gave them an example of needing something to be changed and me communicating this and nothing being said in regards to a solution and how wrong this could look and make someone feel. It's hard to argue with the truth.
Crystal, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Blogger. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment was being recognised by this company to submit to be considered. I'm just doing something I love, and for others to love it too and give me packs on the back, it feels good.
Crystal, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I loved doing photo shoots and was very proud to help a model connect with the makeup artist and photographer and help style. It all came together so well, and I was so proud that I had set it all up from location to wardrobe to all the in between.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Blogger?
Never give up and keep writing, even if you don't think anyone is listening.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I would love to collaborate with models for makeup reviews and fashion looks aswell as a makeup artist.
