For as long as I can remember, I have been quite restless without a creative outlet… be that writing or makeuping or painting or just doodling. Now I have this beautifully designed place to share my own editorial bits and pieces of content about beauty and fashion, embellished with some thoughtful stuff and inspiring videos. It is really satisfying. Since launching about a month ago, I have been casting out my content to the internet universe and waiting to see what happens…
Initially, I considered just how much I enjoy other peoples’ content – glad they live and breathe (and edit) to provide me with hours of entertainment and award-worthy tutorials. On a Thursday I religiously check Jenna Marbles’ YouTube channel, most days I peruse Pixiwoo and Wayne Goss videos, and on Sunday evenings, watching Hannah Maggs’ vlog… is genuinely how I relax. Since I am so engaged with all this online content, it made sense to contribute towards it!
I felt strongly that whatever I might put out there needs to reflect the things that make me, me:
- I’ve always believed that people who fear being disliked or fear being unpopular, are dull as f*ck. They lack a distinct fiery passion and typically amount to very little by way of notable success or influence. Therefore, I do not and will not write things to please a mass audience. Sorrynotsorry.
- Trends are not my thing. I don’t care how a magazine thinks my eyebrows should look. I don’t care about orange lipstick.
- I will always see humour in whatever I write about. This blog is for my enjoyment, and should not read like a law essay. That said, MY law essays at university were always peppered with jokes as a last-ditch attempt to gain marks for making my tutor laugh and in hopefully doing so, he/she would forget about my serious lack of sense… let alone research. Besides, I was too busy applying makeup before lectures… to actually READ. Sorry.
- On a more serious note, If I’m not prepared to personally pay for a product, accessory or item of clothing – I won’t rant and rave about it. Bloggers who do this are lying to you. Shame on them!
