I thought it would be a good start to introduce myself and my blog before getting into the proper blog style I’m after. So I am 24 years old living in Iceland, I had a little crisis on my birthday a few days ago, I couldn’t help but think over and over again that I hadn’t done anything In my life that I felt was 100% just for me and something I enjoyed, at this point I am thinking “hang on a minute! You can do something about it or just sit here and sulk for the rest of your life.” And to be fair I am sick and tired of feeling bad about myself and feeling like I haven’t done anything fun! And that’s when I thought of starting a blog, when I was a teenager I had a blog that I loved to write and put together, it wasn’t a good one, It was quite the mess actually and the subject was basically “my diary”, but it was fun and I enjoyed sitting down and writing about my life and what I did that day.
I have been a beauty enthusiast since I was a little girl, sneaking into my older sisters room to have a little look at her makeup (oh and use it of course!), once I turned 13ish all the girls at my school had started the basic makeup routines and were wondering why I never used makeup, fact was I didn’t have any and I didn’t really know how to use it. My mum bought me my first eyeshadow when I was 14, what a happy day that was, it was a baby blue one from The Body Shop, I loved it, so much that I dared not to use it for the first week!
I had no idea what I was doing. My makeup collection was a blue eyeshadow, nothing else, I didn’t use it often but slowly I had got myself a few bits and bobs and played around with my makeup! I didn’t do a good job but it was fun and I learned quickly enough. I have gone from having a little makeup collection to having a huge one and back to having only one or two items in my bag but now I am building my collection up again after a long absence from makeup and blogging about it in the meanwhile.
I am going to keep this first post of mine short but next time I will start the real blog! And show you something exciting thanks for reading and hope to see you soon!
Lots of love…
