Meet the Blogger – Jess

JessHey lovelies, my name is Jess and I’m 21 and a second year undergraduate student in Leeds… studying a degree in Media. I also have a part-time job so I can save up for when I graduate next year.

Fun fact: me and my boyfriend met online (he’s from Manchester) and will have been together two years in August.

I don’t have a lot of time for hobbies, but my blog, Beautiful Breakable, is my main hobby and of course experimenting with beauty and makeup products – but I also love hanging out with family, friends, going to the cinema and shopping. Gotta love a bit of shopping!!

1. When did you begin blogging?

I have had my blog for over a year now, but I actually started blogging properly and consistently about 6 months ago – so the start of this year.

2. How did you decide on a name for your blog?

I have a tattoo which says “we are beautiful, breakable” (song lyrics) and it has a special meaning to me so I thought I’d choose that instead of just using my name.

3. What inspired you to start your blog?

I was inspired by other beauty bloggers and YouTubers. I had always thoroughly enjoyed reading blogs and have always had an interest in makeup/beauty so I thought “I could do a blog!”… so I did!

4. What is your favourite thing about running a blog?

I love how welcoming the beauty blogger community is and my blog allows me to chat to new people and share beauty/makeup tips. Getting to speak to people with the same/similar interests as me is by far one of my favourite things about running my blog.

5. What are your must read blogs?

6. What do you want to achieve with your blog?

I want to just continue to achieve what I already am – creating content I enjoy writing/making and content which people enjoy reading. I’m so grateful for everyone who reads my blog, I would just be over the moon if even one person continued to read my blog.

7. What advice do you have for new bloggers? Tips, pointers etc.

I would say just be yourself and don’t try to copy – try to come up with new-ish ideas and just have fun with it.

8. What keeps you blogging?

I keep blogging because I love it. I just love writing about makeup/beauty, creating looks and sharing my tips and fave products.

Quick fire questions:

9. What was the last song you downloaded or bought?

I think it was probably Avril Lavigne, I was obsessed with her when I was younger.

10. If you could invite any three celebrity guests or famous people to a dinner party, who would they be?

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Matt Cardle and Gordon Ramsay.

11. Favourite colour?


12. What’s your guilty pleasure?

Gordon Ramsay or chocolate. Or both.

13. Finish this sentence. I wish…

…I was married to Johnny Depp. Who doesn’t? 😉

14. Where else can readers find you online?

Thank you Jess. If anyone else would like to be featured on Chanelle Hayley in the ‘Meet the Blogger’ section, please contact
