Guest Post: Within Jays Life

One thing I love about blogging is the opportunity to make friends and interact with others from around the world. My guest today lives not only in the same country as me but the same city as well! Blogging has brought us together and I can't wait for you to learn more about her and her blog! Enjoy!
1. Jaylynn, tell us about yourself ...
Hi, I'm Jaylynn, or Jay as most call me. I'm a teen beauty blogger from Canada balancing my time between school, blogging, spending time with friends and family and everything in between.
2. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
My blog name is Within Jays Life. Every since I was little everyone would call me Jay so I thought I would tie that in somehow, and I thought "Jays Life" though that name was already taken so I just added in Within to the beginning. (Though to tell you the truth I really don't like my blog name).
3. Why did you start blogging?
I have been watching YouTube for probably about 3 years now and ever since I discovered beauty and makeup vloggers I've been obsessed with makeup. Then one day one of my best friends showed me how she had started a blog and I jumped at the chance to make one myself, and from then on my life has been consumed of reading blogs, writing and growing my blog and watching YouTube videos. 
4. What is your all time favourite beauty product?
My all time favorite beauty product would have to be the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. If I put anything on before I go out it would have to be mascara. This mascara is amazing. It's great for lengthening and adding volume to the lashes. And the packaging is so cute!!
5. If you could only use one beauty product for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
If I could only use on product for the rest of my life it would be my Vaseline Cocoa Butter Lip Balm. This is my all time holy grail lip balm. I would choose this because I have such dry skin and lips and especially with my lips they're always dry and when they are it really irritates me, and this helps to keep my lips nice and smooth.
6. What is one goal you hope to accomplish with your blog in 2015?
One goal for my blog that I hope to accomplish in 2015 is to grow my readership and to change my blog layout.
One personal goal I have for 2015 is to volunteer more. I already do volunteer though I would like to volunteer more at places like Soup Kitchens etc....
Thank you so much Sarah for having me on your blog!!!! 
After learning more about Jay and her blog please don't forget to check it out and give her a follow, you wont regret it!
(If you are interested in becoming a guest blogger please feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email.)

  • Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer
  • Bye, Bye Under Eye Concealer
  • Maybelline New York Concealer
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder
