FAQs.

I’m finally updating my FAQs – if you have any questions please ask me on Twitter!
01. Where did you get the name “gh0stparties”?
To be honest, I have no idea! Before my blog was centred around fashion and beauty, I used to post my photography here but I’m really, really glad I didn’t have something with “beauty” in the title because I think my blog name stands out a bit!

I’m not sure I’m all that in love with it now, but I think it works.

02. What did you study at uni?
I studied Forensic Science, but decided not to go in to a forensics related career. I went to uni quite early on and to be honest, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I’d always been interested in beauty, but had no idea of the variety of jobs available.

03. What do you do for a job?
I set up an online magazine early in 2013 after working on it for the best part of a year. You can read Nouvelle Daily here. I do a lot of organising, planning, editing and writing for Nouvelle – I have a team of lovely people that help but I usually run the beauty section. I do my blog on the side when I have time. I work from home in my little office.

04. Which camera do you use to take your pictures and what do you use to film videos?
I use a Canon EOS 600D to photographs and now videos. Previously I filmed on my macbook pro.

05. Your accent is different, where are you from? I can’t seem to place it. 
I’m from New Zealand, I’ve lived in Australia for two years & I also lived in England for a little while. I now live in Glasgow so it’s a mix!

06. How tall are you & what size are you?
I’m quite small, 5ft 4 I think and a size 8 or 10. Normal.

07. What are your favourite beauty brands?
I like REN, Origins, Caudalie, NUDE and Clarins for skincare. For makeup it’s usually NARS, Kevyn Aucoin, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown and Hourglass.
08. You have mentioned before you had acne, can you recommend products? 
I always review skincare on my blog, but here are two videos in which I talk about helping my skin - here and here.
