THERE’S A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING…
As the title might’ve led you to believe, this is my very first blog post! I thought I should outline some of my goals and hopes for this blog as well as how I would like to connect with you all.
A little about me would be that I’m currently 20 years old and studying Media and Communications with a minor in Women and Gender Studies. I’ve always loved anything and everything related to beauty and fashion but I would constantly find myself too shy or not confident enough to post about it on my social media accounts. I’m trying to find my groove within this industry as well as expand my creative mind. I’ve always loved reading and writing so I figured that blogging might be the most fulfilling transition into expressing myself in this way.
This blog is meant to provide content from my everyday life to how I style myself to beauty trends I enjoy. My reasoning for making this blog was to provide myself with an outlet with the hopes of expressing my pent up artistic aggression on you all. My goals are to connect with a following which enjoy the same things I do and wouldn’t mind talking as well as comparing. I am by no means an expert in any way shape or form so this blog is to help me widen my artistic horizons and push boundaries.
Along with any millennial, I’m obsessed with aesthetics. Anything that is aesthetically pleasing or is beautiful in some way, I absolutely love. In the Life section of this blog, I’ll be talking about food I’m into, lifestyle hacks, places to see and things to do!
Now, I’m in no way stating that I’m a cook or I’m good at making food BUT since I’m most likely not alone in my non well-versed kitchen lifestyle, I will post recipes and ideas for other simpletons who just don’t have that cooking bug. Along with food I would like to post lifestyle hacks for everyday life because I find those tips and tricks help me enormously.
My home has always been Ottawa, Ontario so as a native I think I’ve got some experience in what to do, see and eat in this city! I will be posting these kinds of travel guides for those just passing through our beautiful capital. I’m also a huge travel lover so there will be some updates, stories and tricks along with my trips so you can all learn from my mistakes LOL.
For all of my naturally beautiful people out there who still want to wear makeup (even though they’re already gorgeous) I’ve got some ideas for you! I plan on making this section all about my makeup hacks as well as experiences I have with various products. I will be making “Monthly Favourites” posts to let you guys know some products that I’m really currently loving as well as some that just didn’t live up to their hype.
I’m all about the “looks like I’m not wearing makeup” look so this section will be a lot of that. In my mind it’s about accentuating what you’ve got without creating what you don’t have through makeup. Again I’M NOT AN EXPERT so these are just my personal opinions and experiences that I want to share with all of you beautiful people.
I don’t know if it’s just me but fashion is so inter-changeable that sometimes I just can’t keep up with all the current trends. I hope that in keeping this blog I can encourage myself to get creative and think of ideas which are similar to popular trends but have my own sort of twist on them. I also want to show petite girls that you CAN wear what you want.. if you know how to do it. As a woman who’s 5 feet tall, I live the daily struggle of finding clothes which fit my body properly and accentuate my best features. I hope to shed light on some clothing trends that may seem to be for the tall and skinny but can be for the petite as well!!
Fashion has always been something that I use to not only express myself but also that gives me a sort of silent confidence. The saying of “if you look good, you feel good” always applies! In my eyes, if I don’t look good I won’t get anything done. But if I’m feeling myself, I will definitely feel like I want to be productive. This may not apply to all of you but this is just how I feel. So, this section is really just to encourage self love and body positivity by choosing clothes FOR YOU and which make you feel like the best.
Thanks for reading and ’til next blog 🙂
