Welcome, welcome, welcome to another Get To Know post where I casually interview other bloggers in hopes of getting to know them better and in hopes of spreading their blog to other bloggers out there! Today our amazing guest is Ellie! What a cute name! Ellie runs a blog titled Ellie’s Coffee Dates where she nearly everything from advice, beauty, fashion, tips, things to do and product reviews!
Nickname: don’t have one
Country currently living in: America
Favorite makeup brand: probably Tarte but around 70% of my makeup is E.L.F so probably both of those.
Favorite clothing brand: Anything from Khols
Favorite go to outfit: this is hard, but probably a simple t-shirt and skinny jeans, also, depending on the season an oversized cardigan.
Favorite season: Fall, I love everything about it. The clothing, the leaves, back to school season, and the excitement of the Holidays being just around the corner!!
Favorite vacation: when I took a cruise last December to the Bahamas, it was absolutely beautiful.
Favorite blog post: probably, my “simple ways to feel happier” because I spent so much time on that post and all the things I mentioned I genuinely do,
Tea or coffee: Coffee, all the way, I like to force myself to be a tea-drinker, but nothing beats a warm cup of coffee in the early mornings.
Sweet or savory: I have the BIGGEST sweet tooth, so definitely sweet.
Dinner or dessert: contrary to the last one I actually prefer dinner, especially when I make it. I love making dinner and then sitting around the table with my family.
Breakfast or lunch: probably breakfast, I love cooking and breakfast has so many yummy foods to make
Noise or silence: Noise, depends on when though, but I usually prefer noise
Overdressed or underdressed: overdressed, absolutely, I overdress for class all the time lol.
When did you start your blog: July 5th, 2017
Why did you start your blog: It was actually a very spur of the moment thing. I was alone one afternoon and just decided to go for it. I had absolutely no idea what I doing but I love and I can’t wait to post more!!
Who are your makeup inspirations: I watch a LOT of YouTube so, Zoella and Rachhloves are my two biggest inspirations
When did you start getting into makeup: When I was really young I used to play with makeup all the time and then when my older sister started wearing it she would always do my makeup, but I got really into it last year.
What are your hobbies: Dancing and reading are the biggest ones, but also cooking and watching YouTube.
Do you have any youtubers you watch: Um yes, a ton. Alisha Marie, Zoella, Mark Ferris, Keegan Acton, Sarah Betts and one of my really good friends HeatherGrace201, just to name a few.
Do you speak any languages other than English: Well, sorta. I took a year of Spanish, and I’m going to study it more, but I can understand a little but not much.
What quote or quotes do you believe to be extremely powerful:
“The things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful” – Ben Platt
“Today I will behave as if this is the day I shall be remembered” – Dr. Seuss
“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different” – C.S. Lewis
Looking back, what advice would you give to your younger self:
Make as many friends as you can, be kind, open up to people, enjoy life.
How do you overcome failure:
I think you just have to pick yourself up and remind yourself that your human and your mistakes make you who you are.
In your opinion what is a perfect day:
Waking up to a thunder storm and baking and watching movies and reading near a fire and being productive in the afternoon.
Ellie, your answers were amazing and it was a pleasure getting to know you more. I too constantly watch Zoe and I love all her videos, especially her vlogs! I love that you enjoy waking up to thunder storms because I too love those so very much! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to do this interview, you were incredible!
As for everyone else, please take the time out of your day to go on over to Ellie’s blog and give her the biggest follow!
