I have known Lilian since I was in my 2nd last year of Uni. She came and sat next to me in my first Media Cultures class, and we have been good buddies since. Lil is the type of girl who is just so nice she makes you envious (why can’t I be that kind?)! She also has some serious complexion-perfection, hair that Rapunzel would be well-jel of, and has a bloody brilliant YouTube channel and blog. She truly is, an all-round bloody gorgeous girl (inside and out)
So, to inaugurate the first chapter of the new year’s new blogger interview series (to replace ‘5 minutes with’), I thought Lilian would be the perfect opener to this brilliant 2015, so here we go!

Tell us a little bit more about you and your blog/vlog, and what made you decide to start it?
I uploaded my first video on my youtube channel 2009/2010, but didn’t take it seriously until 2012.
I realised that there was so much “hate” and negativity going on online, so I thought “how I would be able to help them”?. So one of my first videos was “How to become confident”, after that when that video went viral, Google contacted me and asked if I was interested in becoming partners with them. So after that I just continued doing what I love, which then lead to this.
Regarding my Blog, It was 2012/2013 I think, I began blogging on www.liliantahmasian.com because I was going to a trip to New York for my 21st and I thought it would be amazing to upload my images on a website for my family/friends to see. So then my Blog was introduced on my channel 🙂 I love being able to have a platform to voice my opinion on, in that way.
Describe a typical day in the life of Lilian Tahmasian?
I usually wake up quite early at 6am or 7 am, I do a 45-60 minute workout, then get into my emails. I get roughly about 35-40 a day (depending on the day), so it takes me a few hours to get through them. Then if I have a meeting, I attend that, if not, then it must be a filming day. Once I film, I tend to have dance classes after, so that takes up 3 hours of the night, then i come home and relax 🙂
Where do you hope to see your vlog/blog going in the next 6 months?
I want to continue vlogging and creating content online. I also want to travel with my Channel and record my life to a greater extent, so hopefully just sticking to my uploading schedule and seeing where that may take me 🙂
Do you have any tips for any budding vlogger or blogger?
I always say this, my number 1 tip would be to be yourself and remain true to your passion and art. Because it becomes evident if you’re doing something you don’t truly love for the wrong reasons.
