Welcome back to another weekend of Have You Met goodness! I originally wanted to do them last week, but what with self hosting and all, I couldn’t do them in time. So, let’s get back into these. Would you believe I still have bloggers I want to talk about till October at this point? 😀
Haaaaaaaaave you met Azra?
Azra blogs over at Simple Serenity. She is based in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is 23 years old and is currently at university, studying chemical engineering, as well as working. She blogs about primarily beauty, but also fashion and lifestyle.
Azra started her blog last year in 2016, but started posting more frequently this year. She often does reviews and impressions on makeup and beauty products. She also shares tips and tricks on beauty and makeup, as well as on blogging itself. Her tagline on her blog is “There’s beauty in simplicity”.
She explains why she started her blog in a Q’n’A post back in April.
This is going to be super long answer. I always wanted to have my own blog, I though that’s really cool. But to be honest I was scared to start it, because people can be really judgy. Thankfully I started this blog last year and I’m loving it so much. I wasn’t really posting a lot last year, which is such a shame. I don’t know why but I just wasn’t that much into it. But now I’m on track with keeping enough of new content, hopefully it’s interesting and helpful. Why I started blogging? Usually girls would ask me which products I use and which products I recommend so that’s how it started. Also I started to be really good at makeup, so I would usually do makeup on my friends, it was something I really enjoyed so I started blog so I can share my passion with people who feel the same way.
Isn’t that wonderful? 🙂
Azra is another of the bloggers who I found very early on. I found her through another blog, and even though I wasn’t very interested (at the time) in beauty bloggers or makeup posts, I was taken in by hers. Her photos are stunning, and the way she talks about the products and routines grabbed me. Now, I follow a whole bunch of beauty bloggers, I love them all to bits and will sometimes try out the tips you all share. So I have a soft spot for Azra, who opened up the floodgate of beauty blogging for me 😀
Also, she’s just the sweetest!
Here are a few of my favourite posts of hers:
I think I’ve said this a lot, but I love Day in the Life posts! It fascinates me to see what people get up to on a regular day. Azra shares with us a typical Saturday, which consists of spending time with friends and family, doing some work for her blog/uni/job, and on occasion, ending the day with going out or clubbing. It was really cool to get a glimpse into Azra’s daily life 😀
Azra currently has a series about blogging tips and tricks. She’s an amazing beauty blogger (one of the best!), and has over 1000 followers, so it’s great that she shares tips and tricks with us all! One of the highlights of Azra’s blog are her photos. They are always professional and stunning, and also take a lot of work. I think we can all agree that the end result is nothing less than perfect! ❤ Definitely check out this post!
The title explains it all really. Azra shares tried and tested beauty hacks with us all. As someone who still has no clue about most beauty things (and is too lazy to find out more on her own), these kinds of posts are fascinating and so very helpful.
As well as reviews of beauty products, tips and tricks, Azra frequently shows make up looks. She has done quite a few, but as a fan of more neutral colours and lots of eye detail, this one is one of my top favourites! She looks super dramatic, and the kind of girl that I would try to subtly stare at (in awe) if I saw her around.
Azra shares with us what’s in her makeup bag currently. She’s done a review on a fair few of them. I love seeing what products she uses, as I trust her judgement that these would be good products. Also, we both use Garnier BB cream foundation which cheers me up, as I feel like it’s validation that I’m using a good BB cream ?
In this post, Azra shares her picks on what everyone should have in their makeup collection. For each item, she mentions whether it’s just personal preference, something that is important and a must, or would just be fun to have.
Make sure to check out Azra on Instagram as well!
Azra, you are amazing at what you do! Your posts are always so well written and presented, and I love seeing what you’ll write about next. You’re such a supportive and lovely person, and I’m so happy to have met you online!
So, have you guys checked out Azra yet??
