Guess who's back...back again....
It feels so strange writing on this little blog again! I used to write on here all the time a few years ago and then life happened, I got busy, I became uninspired, I felt like my posts lacked a certain 'suttin-suttin' and I deleted all my posts and just left my blog to gather dust here in my little corner of the web!
I've thought about coming back and starting again a lot of times over the last few years and it's never happened. I lacked confidence to come back and create posts again, but recently I've became more and more inspired to start writing on here again. I just want to do it a little differently this time.
Last time around I focused my whole blog on just Beauty and Fashion. Two of my biggest loves and two things I could happily spend my days reading about, drooling over and shopping for. But I found myself getting bored of writing about the same things and just reviewing Highlighters all the time. I want to talk about all different things on my blog and not just be pigeon holed into one category. I want to create more of a lifestyle blog with all my passions thrown in, whether it being a brand new highlighter I have desperately fallen in love with, a new outfit I've worn and feel fabulous in, a new place I've visited which has stolen my heart, a new restaurant I've visited which has filled my stomach with tasty delights or when I just feel like rambling on when I need to and letting off some steam about different topics and issues.
I'm 30 now and when I started this blog I was in my early 20's. I feel like I've grown as a person and my idea's of what I want to write about on my blog are different. My blog last time was not me at all, it was a me I created because I felt like I needed to be something I wasn't to have a successful blog, I was trying to fit the mould of what a blogger at the moment should be and should be talking about, not what I wanted to talk about and I wasn't being myself at all. I put so much pressure on myself to try and maintain the same quality and standard as the big bloggers and in reality, that just wasn't feasible for me. I have a busy social life, I don't have the money to be buying the most expensive things all the time, I have a 9-5 job, I don't have the equipment other bloggers have. I want this to be a hobby, no pressure to post constantly, and something I can enjoy doing again. Somewhere I like coming to, and don't feel inadequate. This time my blog is going to be 100% me and my posts are going to be what I want them to be, not what I feel they should be. I'm not going to have the best photo's, I don't own an amazing expensive camera, I don't have a marble backdrop, but hopefully that won't matter and people enjoy my blog for what it is.
So let's all raise a glass of Rosé (or vodka, whatever you prefer) and cheers to my new blogging chapter! :)
