Lucy's blog, Forever September is pleasing to the eye, a joy to read and her makeup posts are always a treat. Meet The Blogger is the chance to discover other bloggers and get to know a little bit more about them before giving them a follow if you haven't already. I love stumbling across new reads and always get a little happy inside when someone posts 'my favourite bloggers' - so let's GO!
Hi Lucy - tell us a little bit about you and your blog, Forever September
I'm 18 years old, which I guess is classed quite young for a blogger. Anyhow, I love blogging to pieces and I don't know what I'd do with my time otherwise. I started blogging just over two and a half years ago now because I was inspired by the typical stars such as Zoella (cliché I know), but I just wanted to give it a go. Forever September itself wasn't born until about a year ago, when I thought up the name and decided to take blogging that little bit more seriously.
What was the inspiration behind starting a blog and what advice would you give someone thinking of starting one?
I think the inspiration behind starting my blog was just because I had a real passion for fashion and beauty. I also loved (and still) photography and I wanted a place where I could showcase that. If anyone out there wants to start a blog, I'd say just go for it. If you have a passion for something, you'll never get bored of it.
What's one blog we should be reading right now?
One blog you should definitely be reading right now is Josie's (Sick Chick Chic). Josie recently had a lung transplant as she was suffering with Cystic Fibrosis. She's shared her journey with the transplant, and it's all very inspiring and uplifting. Big love to Josie.
What other hobbies do you have other than blogging?
I don't have too many other hobbies to be honest haha. Although I love photography, and do that often. I also love to read, and am trying to get into reading a mixture of fiction and non-fiction lately. Apart from that, not a lot. I mean I'm still in college so that takes up a fair bit of time haha.
What's one thing people who read your blog may not know about you?
One thing you may not know about me is that I have a pretty huge love for cats and dogs. Don't think I've ever mentioned that over on my blog but I'm truly obsessed with lil' puppies and kittens. Especially sausage dogs and pugs I mean come on, they're just SO sweet.
Custard creams or jammy dodgers?
This is a very tough decision to make. I used to love jammy dodgers as a kid, but it's going to have to be custard creams!
Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
I haven't travelled much in my 18 years on this planet. However, my favourite place in the world has to be Brighton. Again, might be a bit cliché but it's my happy place. There are so many independent shops there and it's just an inspiring place to be. And not to forget the beautiful beach of course.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In 5 years time I hope to have graduated from uni, or have a stable job that I love. Preferably doing something the the creative industry. I also hope I'm still blogging because my love for it doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.
Name three things you are obsessed with right now
Three things I'm obsessed with right now...hmm. My new record player I got for my birthday, crispy M&Ms and my Dr Martens.
