So, here goes my first blog and I thought I’d start off with a short one about me, just to get the ball rolling and edge my way into the blogging world!
I’ve been wanting to do this for ages and ages but just never had the courage to go through with it. I’ve spent endless hours watching and reading other beauty and lifestyle bloggers and they’ve given me so much inspiration and courage to go through with this so I just thought, “ah, what the heck!”
I guess you could call me a bit of a makeup/skin care addict, I love all things beauty, so what better way to express myself than writing it all into a blog for you lovely people to read? I’ve learnt so much and tried so many different products that I’d love to share with you all, especially any tips and tricks that I’ve picked up along the way that may help you too. There were so many doubts in my head about doing this…. “what if nobody wants to read my stuff? I’m not super popular on social media” Or “maybe people won’t like my style of writing or what I have to talk about”.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that, if people don’t read my blog then does it really matter? I’m doing this for me and in a couple of years time I’ll look back on this and read my first blogs and realise how much I’ve grown as a person and how much I’ve learnt over the years.
I’ve always had a passion for luxury skin care and makeup but I really got into it about 4 years ago when I started experimenting with more and more brands and trying different looks, I became much more brave with my makeup. I totally blame my mum for this! She took me for my first foundation when I was around the age of 16 and got me started on Chanel… I’ve never looked back. In fact, I still sometimes go back to that foundation (not the same bottle obviously). Don’t get me wrong, I still buy drug store products, it’s just I like my brands and they have never failed me. Something I really look for when it comes to makeup is how well it wears and for how long… particularly with my hectic lifestyle!
I suppose you could say I almost have 2 lives? The first one being my day to day job which is working in an office 5 days a week, this in itself can be quite stressful. The other version of me, the life I’ve grown up with, is spent at my mum and dads family farm running a café and farm shop at the weekend and working on the farm along with my brother and fiancé. Chaos I know!
I do like to spend time slobbing on the sofa (who doesn’t?!) however, with two 10 week old kittens, Wilbur and Anakin, this is now limited too! They are absolutely crazy! Yes, I know, they look so cute on the photo, like…. “aw, how could these little sleeping beauties cause havoc?” HA HA yeah ok… tell my sofa that when they are running from end to end on it with there little sharp, scratchy claws.
So with that in mind, my makeup has to last the day and this is definitely one of the main focuses for me… ‘how well does it wear on a farm?’
If you’ve enjoyed reading my blog so far then let me know in the comments below and hopefully you’ll stay tuned for my future posts. I intend to share my crazy life with you and all my makeup tips and tricks that go along with it.
