I’m back with another guest post this week! Say hi to Tiana!
What’s your blog’s name, and why? My blog’s name is Storybook Apothecary. The name comes from my love for fairy tales and just stories, in general. I have kind of an obsession with fantasy and sci-fi anything, especially films and books, so it just fit for me. I originally came up with the name because, at the time, I was selling my own healing face powder on Etsy and that was the name of my shop. I closed my shop as it became too much for me and converted my blog into a space where I could share the things I love and tell the stories behind them.
How long have you been blogging? I’ve been blogging since March 2012 and I just celebrated 3 years blogging.
Fill in the blank: When I’m not blogging, I am…writing scripts, singing at karaoke, and acting in short films.
What’s one thing about your blog that makes you proud? I’m really proud that I’ve been able to create some really fun content. I’ve learned a ton about green beauty so I share a ton about that on my blog, but also just getting better at photoshop – my designs were horrible in the beginning and they’ve come a long way since then.
Those who read Always, S can click over to your blog to find…green beauty reviews, style inspiration, healthy living tips, and book/movie recommendations.
Three random facts: I’m allergic to carpet freshener which I learned from experience after a housekeeper cleaned my mom’s sofa with it and I broke out in hives. I’m 5’6″. My middle name is Mae after my grandmother.
Your summer must-haves: sunscreen, coconut-scented everything, fresh fruit and veggies, face mist, sunglasses, and bright color nail polishes!
If you had to be stranded on a deserted island with one person who would you want that one person to be? My boyfriend. He’s the smartest person I know and he makes good company.
Furthest you’ve traveled from your home: To Wales when I was 15. It was the best trip ever!
Mountains or beach? Beach. I used to live in San Clemente, a small beach town in Southern California, when I was young and it’s the one place that makes me feel at home and clear-headed.
Your dream job? Acting in films, writing scripts and novels, and traveling.
Who or what inspires you? Many people inspire me: my boyfriend, my friends, other bloggers, my dog, famous actors and actresses. Things that inspire me are: nature, rainy days, the ocean, good films, good books, good music, dreams, good conversations. I find living, itself, to be really inspiring, even if it isn’t always what we plan it to be.
Fill in the blank: I can’t stop listening to…the You Me At Six new album Cavalier Youth, Miss Jackson by Panic at the Disco, Truth or Dare by Mariana’s Trench, and One Last Time by Ariana Grande.
Your favorite post from your blog: That’s so difficult to answer! I have a hard time being satisfied with my blog posts which is probably why there is so much ranting and raving. My top 3 favorite personal posts are here, here and here.
