Meet The Blogger: Meet Julia Of Julia Antoinette

It's Meet The Blogger Time! Today's Blogger is Julia of Julia Antoinette. Julia is the first lifestyle blogger to be featured on Meet The Blogger. Also her Instagram is amazing, be sure to check her page(link is at the end of the post.)

What made you start a blog?

I wanted to share the things I've experienced and the things I love doing. It's really the ability to tell people about the stuff I really love and recommend. But now, its more because it is really super fun!


How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging fairly recently. Just last year, around the end of September was my first published post, testing out the waters. I didn’t really have a formal launch so my blog just kind of came alive after a while.


What would you say makes your blog unique?

What makes my blog unique is it's authenticity. I am a weird mixture of artist and geek. Food lover and fitness enthusiast. Travel bug and bibliophile. These things make me “me” and my blog what it is.


Have you ever reviewed a product that has become something you use all the time?

It’s not a product, but I have reviewed this super great restaurant that is really really good and I became a regular there. The food was amazing and the service even better!


What would you say is the downside of blogging?

The time constraints. I have a day job and many other extracurricular activities. Blogging lessens my time to do those things because I need to allocate a certain amount for my writing and I had to cancel plans more now than when I wasn’t blogging yet.


Are you married? Do you have any kids and/or pets?

I’m not married and I don’t have kids, but I do have 4 cutest dogs you will ever see. They’re amazingly sweet and friendly to just about anyone!

When you aren't blogging what are you most likely doing?

I’m most likely doing a ton of different things. Maybe reading, probably drawing, or just out trying a bunch of different stuff!

Is there a blogger that you look up to/admire?

I just adore Heidi Nazarudin from theambitionista.com. She talked in the BloggerBabes launch by Clozette, and I was very impressed. She is professional and really cares about the community and does things to help out fellow bloggers. She also has a killer fashion sense. She is super nice, too! I just love her.


What is your least favorite product to blog about?

If I don’t like the product, I try not to blog it. Not only does the negativity affect how I write, but I become biased in my writing and that’s not good for the readers or the product.


Any advice for new bloggers?

Pay attention to how your blog looks and please please please do give credit when credit is deserved. Don’t just get photos from google and use it on your post without properly giving credit to the website, or better yet, the photographer.

I seriously love that your a dog lover Julia!
Thanks so much for being part of Meet The Blogger Julia! You can find her at her blog & the following social media pages.

Mani For Rose Of Manicured & Marvelous

2 weeks ago Rose from Manicured & Marvelous was here for Meet The Blogger. Well she hasn't feeling well so myself & a bunch of bloggers has recreated some of Rose's Mani's to cheer her up!

After looking at her Instagram this is the mani I'm going to recreate.
The products I'm using are Julep in Braiden, Hope & Lucy, Julep Pearl Studs, Model City Polish in Ghost Stories, Glisten & Glow HK girl topcoat & Toadarrific Vinyls Chevron Vinyls.

I started from the left using 2 coats of Lucy, 1 coat of Ghost Stories, 1 coat of Braiden & 2 coats of Lucy. Once dry I applied 2 chevron vinyls then 1 coat of Hope. While Hope  was drying I applied the pearls using tweezers. Last but not least I removed the vinyls & applied HK girl topcoat on the chevron design & pearls.
Looks similar right? I'm very pleased with how this came out especially since this is my most complex mani.
I hope it makes Rose smile:)
Be sure to check out all the other Mani's For Rose below in the linkup.

Pearl studs, Lucy & Braiden are currently unavailible but Hope is available at julep.com

Chevron vinyls are availible at http://Toadarrific Vinyls Storenvy Shop
