Oh hi! Welcome to my little slither of the internet – I’m very pleased to have you here! Pull up a virtual chair and I’ll tell you a bit about why I’m here (besides birth)… that’s why you’ve come to the ‘About’ page… right?
When I first started blogging it was because I had a major lack of self confidence. When I first turned 18 I used to go out drinking all the time with my friends, but after about a year I started to get really anxious and ended up having to stay home. I’m a 5ft 10″ and I’m way taller than all my friends, so I always felt like a giant and that I stood out too much when I wore heels, but if I went in flats I always thought my legs looked way too big – pictures the morning after were always dreaded and untagged. Ranging from a size 14-18 it didn’t help that all my friends were a size 12 or less either.
I thought that by starting a blog I would find a whole new community and hopefully start to regain some of that lost confidence – and it’s working! The problem I have now is that I stopped going out drinking altogether as I hated the atmosphere and I really didn’t enjoy the ‘had a drink’ feeling anymore… and so I lost all my friends. They didn’t understand why I stopped going and I didn’t know how to make them understand.
Now I blog so I have a space to tell people about that mascara I’ve been loving or why I don’t like that muffin recipe – and the great thing is that the majority of people on here actually care that I think that recipe is a pile of shit! I may not have any real friends anymore, but at least I’ve got a way to comunicate with people that think like I do, and I like it that way!
My blog mainly consists of makeup and fashion posts, tried and tested recipes, craft ideas and projects and the general ramblings of my quirky little head! I love the feedback I get from you guys, and it makes me feel great when I see that people have actually been reading what I’m posting on here, I never thought I’d have this many followers or views – I’m thankful to each of you!
So, thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet, I hope you find things on here that interest you and I hope to see you again real soon! xo
