Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
I'm from a small European country, Estonia, but at the moment we live in the UK. I have a degree in Educational Science from the University of Tartu and before becoming a stay-at-home mom and full-time blogger I worked as a kindergarten teacher for 5 years.
How did you first become interested in beauty, and what led you to create your own blog?
I have always been interested in beauty. I created my blog in 2011 when Mr. R was rotated to Afghanistan for 6 months and so I was kind of bored and I just wanted a new hobby. Sharing my opinion about beauty products that I've tested and used seemed like a great idea. At first my blog was in Estonian only and after 2 or three months it became bilingual.
I love the name of your blog! How did you come up with it?
My blog has had three names. The first one was Ei Saa Mitte which only has meaning in Estonian. About 6 months later I changed it to Miss L and two and half years ago I changed it to Beauty by Miss L. It seemed to be the best name for my blog at that time, because most of my posts were beauty related.
What are your top 5 favorite beauty products?
Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara. It's one on of my favorite ones because it adds lot of volume to my lashes, doesn't smear and even though it is waterproof I have no problems removing it.
Supergoop! CC Cream Daily Correct Broad Spectrum SPF 35 Sunscreen. It is just so good!
e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit. It's affordable and works well.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Suitable for both daytime and nighttime looks and it has great quality.
Batiste Dry Shampoo. It is my must-have hair care product. It works really well and makes my hair look and feel clean.
What are your top 3 beauty tips?
1) Never go to bed with your makeup on.
2) Never skip moisturizer and/or sunscreen.
3) To stay beautiful it is also very important to exercise, eat healthy and sleep 7-8 hours.
Being a blogger must be fun, but what do you do in your spare time?
My spare time is filled with my 2 year old son. I also try to find time for working out and jogging. From time to time I attend races just for fun. I also like photography and taking photos, especially nature and flower photos.
In addition to your blog, how can The Beauty of Life readers find you on social media?
You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Youtube.
