Interview Week: Introduction

As I'll be away from my blog for a few days I thought it would be a great idea to share some blogger love with some of the amazing bloggers out there. 

From tomorrow I will be featuring 7 bloggers (one a day), each blogger will answer 11 questions so you can get to know them a little better, make sure you check out their blogs too. Before I leave for the week I thought it would be cool to answer the 11 questions I've asked the bloggers

1. Tell us a little about yourself, what do you enjoy about life?
I'm pretty sure most of my readers know a lot about me but if you don't - I'm Charlene, I'm 21 years young and I live in London and have done all of my life. I love to travel and want to see the world. I currently study International Tourism Management and I'm about to start my 3rd year. I'd love to work in boarder control or some kind of visa/immigration department.   

2. Why did you choose your blog name?
Although my name is Charlene on social media (Bebo) I’ve always been known as Aleesha, just due to safety online when I was much younger (13). A 'friend' always called me her starr so I put the two together and came up with 'LeeshaStarr'. I started blogging back in 2011 and decided ‘The Life of Leeshastarr’ would suit my blog. I’m now 21 and wished I thought of something a little more unique but I don't want to go through the hassle of changing it.  

3. How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
I've been blogging on and off since 2011, it was to vent my feelings but soon became somewhere for me to share my love of beauty

4. What is your blog niche or what topics do you cover and why?
I cover everything from beauty and fashion to travel and being a student

5. What do you find most challenging about blogging about your topic?
I find it hard to keep ahead of trends, I'm a student so buying expensive products to try out and review is too expensive for me.

6. What would your advice be to newbie bloggers?
Be yourself. There are many different bloggers out there, if you're true to yourself and do what you do best people will love you.

7. What do you love most about where you live?
You can read my post here about why I love London so much.

8. Three beauty items you can’t live without
Benefit's Brow Zings, Bourjois volume clubbing mascara & my tweezers.

9. How do you keep coming up with content for your blog?
I find it pretty hard, I've started writing ideas that come to mind in my phone with a little bit of information so when I get the time I post them. 

10. What is your favourite and least favourite post that you've done and why?
My favourite post is actually a pretty recent post of mine - 'OOTD: Fashion Show'. Although I've added a few OOTD posts this was my most confident post where I'm happy to share a full length picture. I don't have a least favourite but I know a few of my posts from 2011 - 2013 make me cringe.   

11. Have you got anything to say to new potential readers?
Hopefully you'll enjoy my blog and love to see my journey through life as I slowly become more confident with my body and how I express myself. Things can only get better from here!


I'll be back on my blog with my own posts on the 26th May 2015.


  1. What a lovely interview, it is nice to get to know bloggers that we read on a daily basis. Looking forward to your interviews.


  2. Hi - you've been blogging longer than I have and are doing a great job! I guess there must be so much to cover in London. I live just outside Cardiff and it's just a bit quieter. Look forward to reading your blogger interviews.

  3. Great post! I've been running a weekly feature a bit like this on my blog too, I love discovering bloggers!

  4. I love getting to know the blogger behind the blog! Looking forward to reading the other interviews
