Asma Al Malki entered the blogging world on January 31, 2013, and since then has become one of the most loved bloggers from Sharqiya. We asked our followers on @destinationshrq to send us some questions for That Red Lip and here are her answers!
By Nahla Al Sardi
What made you start blogging?
I wanted to make my own space where I can share my interests in beauty, fashion, lifestyle, and shopping with other people.
Why 'That Red Lip'?
The red color is an indicator of wildness and passion. The lip plays a major part in glowing up the makeup.
What is the best part about blogging?
Trying new products, exploring new trends which suit me and being in touch with my lovely readers.
What is the most challenging part?
To be honest, I have lots of posts I haven’t published yet because I’m struggling to find time to put the final touches on them.
How do you see yourself in 10 years?
I don’t really know. I don’t like to think about tomorrow; I’m only concerned about today. But the one thing I’m sure about is that I will continue blogging.
What are some of the things you would like to accomplish in the next few years?
I would like to have a solid ground to start my own career in the beauty and fashion industry.
Any advice you would give someone who wants to start a blog?
Do what you love and love what you do. Just start by tackling the area you’re interested in. Whether it’s fashion, sports or DIY, just do it. Don’t copy others and don’t hesitate. You are unique! There’s only one version of you in this world, so express it.
How do you coordinate between being a supervisor and a blogger?
Supervising is my full-time job, blogging is my part-time job and trying to balance between the two is almost impossible. But I’m trying my best.
