The Blogger Behind The Blog

As I recently hit 900 followers on my Bloglovin (eeek, thank you all so much!), I thought it was about time that I did another little 'get to know me' post.

Even though I talk about personal experiences, and my thoughts on certain taboo topics, I never really discuss who I am as a person. There's much more to me than my favourite eyeshadow palette, or the places that I like to visit, and that's what I'm going to show you guys today!

I used to be really, really shy. I don't know if that will come as a surprise to any of you, considering the fact that I often post photos of myself on social media, and I'm happy to talk about anything to anyone, but it doesn't mean I was always that way. I was never a confident girl, even when I was younger and in nursery, and I'd always stick with my mum, because I was too afraid to step into the unknown. However, as time has gone on, and I've grown up, I've realised that I don't have to stay shy for the rest of my life. It's still a major part of my character, but I'm learning to challenge myself, and embrace it. Since stepping out of my comfort zone in various ways, my life really has changed for the better, and that's something that I'm really proud to say.

Books, poetry and writing is what I'm all about. Ever since I knew how to open a book and read, my life has literally resolved around it. I've always loved English, as a subject, and reading, and writing has been something that I've done as a hobby for as long as I can remember. I'd always go to the library with my Grandma to take out 12 books at a time, and I loved creative writing more than life itself! Since my teens began, I've gotten more into poetry, but I still do love to write short stories and descriptive pieces.

I'm constantly feeling extreme wanderlust. For those of you who may not know what the term 'wanderlust' is referring to, it essentially means that I have a strong desire to travel. I have a bucket list in my head (although, I should probably just compile it into a physical list!) of all the places that I want to explore, and believe me, there are many, including the UK and Europe! Central and South America, Australia, Canada, Italy, Norway, Hawaii, South Africa and Portugal to name but a few! I just want to see as much of this planet that I can, whilst I can and that's what I intend on doing.

Astrology is one thing that fascinates me. Now, I'm not entirely sure how I got into the idea, but for the past few years, I've been doing more research into astrology, and the star signs. I find it really interesting, but it's not something that I ever really speak to other people about, because I'm never sure that they share the same interest! I follow quite a few pages on Twitter about it, and I'm always eager to know more about being a Piscean.

I constantly have a desire to learn and become more educated. By saying this, I don't mean that I was always a teachers pet, and I was desperate to be in school 24/7. What I mean is I love learning, pushing myself, and finding out new things. In my free time, I'm usually always sat watching some sort of documentary, whether it's about poverty, drugs, crime, mental health, or something a little more uplifting. I just love to learn about things, and keep my brain active. That's probably what helps me to dream big!

One of my favourite traits about myself is my determination. Something that hopefully comes across in my blog is how determined, and passionate I am. If I want something, I will do what I can to make it happen. I'm very hard-working, whether that's in regard to my education, or something which I have personally taken up as nothing more than a hobby. I'm always trying to better myself, and my life, and I won't let anyone, or anything stand in my way. I'm constantly looking to improve, and take constructive criticism on board, because that's just another way that I can grow, and develop as an individual!

From this post, you know now a little bit more about me, rather than just thinking I'm a random blogger behind this blog! I do usually talk about lifestyle, beauty and advice, but sometimes it's nice to just talk about who I really am, and what I'm really like behind all of that.

This is also a collaboration with one of my best blogging girlies Tash. She works super hard on her beautiful blog, and all of her content is on point! If you like reading what I have to say, you'll enjoy reading her posts too, so go and give her some love!

Let me know if you liked this post, and if you'd like me to do more every so often.

Lots of love always,
