No one is more surprised than I am by the arrival of this blog. If you’d known me as a child (actually, up until the age of about 21), you’d know me as a tomboy. Always dressed in sports gear (in my defence, I trained for gymnastics 4 times a week), with my hair pulled back in a ponytail, and definitely no make up. However, during my twenties I started to develop a number of what I’d previously considered to be ‘girly’ traits, and I’ve discovered I actually quite like them.
Nail polish is one such thing which I have been loving since 2012, and I’ve been following some nail bloggers for a while. I love looking at their photos, and trying to paint my own nails without getting polish all over my hands. They’ve inspired me to buy colours I previously wouldn’t have considered, and I’ve been surprised by the ones I actually like. Some I like in the bottle but not on the nail, some vice versa. So I thought I ought to start keeping photos of my nail varnishes to remind me what they look like on. And what better way to do that but via a blog.
In 2013 my love of nail polish extended to other beauty products. I’ve always been really rubbish at applying makeup, but am gradually learning and improving, thanks to the many blogs and Youtubers I follow. I sometimes review beauty products for BzzAgent, and like to share my thoughts on other products I try, so I’ve extended the scope of the blog to incorporate other beauty items.
I’ve been blogging for a number of years for a number of different purposes and really enjoy it. I blog about my professional development, my crafts, and living with coeliac disease. You’ll also find me on Twitter where I talk about any and all the above, plus whatever else comes to mind. I love learning in all areas of my life, and blogging is a way for me to share this with others. When I discover something great, I want to tell everyone about it!
