In the second of my 'Meet The Blogger'-esque series, I'm chatting to a blogger that I've known in the blogosphere for years. Megan Lillie, or as you might know her Thumbelina Lillie is super beautiful, relatable and creates bloody good content across her platforms - and because of this it only made sense that we got the down low on her beauty history and blogging future. Read on for the lowdown...
Introduce yourself and your blog in one sentenceMy name is Megan and I blog at www.thumbelinalillie.com, my little space where I share all my thoughts and feelings!
When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging October 2012 after deciding to take a year out in between college and University. I had been reading blogs for around 6 months and had always had a love for writing, as well as makeup and fashion. It just kind of all fell together, and I'm so glad that it did!
What was your first ever beauty product?
Probably a Groovy Chick Glitter Roll-On - ha! Those things were the best back in the 90's!
Best budget beauty buy?
Hmm, any Rimmel lipstick! I think they are such good value for money.
What one product do you always repurchase?
I have purchased the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation god knows how many time! It's the perfect every day, lightweight foundation for work!
Bold eyes or bold lips?
Lips - every time!
Your biggest beauty disaster?
Probably when I went into the hairdressers asking for ombre, and came out 4/5 platinum blonde!
Most cherished piece of clothing?
Probably my uber-princess Cosmo Awards dress. I've only wore it twice, but I absolutely love it!
What’s your go-to outfit?
Any kind of smock dress, my ultimate go-to!
Granny pants or thongs?
What’s in your handbag right now?
Just my purse and keys, I'm a regular packer of whatever I need. I'm not a fan of clutter!
Night out or night in?
IN! 75% of the time ha!
What’s your favourite meal?
Gimme Tapas any day! I love little picky bits so that I don't have to dedicate to one meal!
What’s your spirit animal?
Probably like a little micro-pig haha!
Who is your beauty/style icon?
I don't really have one person that I obsess over! But I love Charlotte Tilbury as a general makeup queen!
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
My collection of cosy, big, baggy jumpers!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
I'm not guilty of anything! I mean, I'm totally proud to be an avid Busted and High School Musical fan.
What’s the last thing you do before you go to bed?
Scroll through Instagram - guilty!
Top blogging tip?
Let it flow naturally and don't force anything!
What do you see in the future for yourself and your blog?
Just continuing to love writing and creating the content that I want to create!
