Influences of the Internet TAG!

A couple of days ago I was tagged in a post by Monica from The Total Opposite! Check her out :)
1) You must state this tag was created by Megan at TheBeautyPier.
2) You must tag at least one person to do this. However, the more the merrier!
3) Let the person know you tagged them with a comment on their blog.
4) Title this post 'Influences of the Internet TAG!'
5) Enjoy! 

1. Did other blogs convince you to start up your own?
Yes, I was most inspired to create a blog by April from A Girl's Guide to Life, and a couple of other blogs as well.  

2. Have you joined a site because someone else in the blogosphere did?
Not yet! I've checked out a few store websites mentioned by other bloggers since joining Blogger, though.  

3. Is there a tip/regime you've gotten from the internet that you now use?
I learned how to do my makeup and some hairstyles on Youtube! I watched a video on how to curl hair with a straightener and that is how I touch up my curls now.  

4. If your favorite YouTube/Blogger personality likes a product, will that make you buy it?
If it isn't too expensive to ship to Canada, or if it is from a store that we have in Canada! And if they reaaally love it, and I've heard good things from a number of people well then I'm pretty much sold. 

5. What do you look for in a blog that makes you want to follow?
If the blogger has recently posted something that interests me, and the layout is easy to navigate. If they use a really odd, unreadable font I'm less likely to follow. I also love to see pretty pictures, but they have to write too! 

6. Have you ever been deceived by a product that you ordered online? (e.g you thought it would be pink but it was coral)
Well yeah, a few times. The colour has been off on things I've bought, or the fit just looks waaay different on me than it does on the model - but that's not necessarily the company's fault of course. ;) 

7. Have promo pictures and press releases given you the impression that a product will be better than it is?
Hmm, I don't know if I've ever paid attention to that kind of thing. A commercial though, for sure!  

8. Is there a product you could give a 'cult' status for being so good that you discovered through the internet?
I discovered Cetaphil through Youtube and I actually want to go find the original videos that convinced me to buy the face wash and thank those girls a million times. It seriously cleared up my face! But even then, I dunno about a cult status lol. 

9. Is there a product you have tried and hated, but others have loved?
I'm actually not a big fan of Herbal Essences shampoos/conditioners. I used to use them years ago and they made my hair very greasy even though I washed them out completely. Although, at the time I did wash my hair every day and I think my hair may have been producing extra oils to make up for the oils being stripped by washing my hair every day. So who knows? 

10. Is there a Blogger/YouTuber that influences your fashion style? If so, who?
I suppose if I had to choose one, I'd choose Jasmine Blu, because I think she dresses really adorable and she has influenced my style somewhat. I like pastels and crop tops a lot more now haha. But many times she has said that she hates certain trends that I love, so not always!  

11. Is there a Blogger/Youtuber that influences your attitude each day/lifestyle?
No, I can't say there is! I have picked up lifestyle tips here and there, but I can't think of any one person who has influenced me enough to mention! 

12. How much time do you spend on the internet daily?
Basically from the time I get home from school (like 3:30ish) until I go to bed... unless I have a lot of homework. And on weekends.. pretty much all day unless I actually have plans haha.

I'd like to tag Athena from Modestly Sophisticated, Ashley from TheLittleDaintySailor, and Helen from Hels Yeah! and anyone else who wants to go for it :) 

Alrighty, well I am going to a movie tonight with my friend! So even though I had another blog post idea in mind I think I'm gunna save it for later :) Thanks for reading!
