Why I started a blog

I started a Blog because……..

Beauty, Travel, Lifestyle, Mommy Blog

I’ve always seen myself as many things, a wife, mother, daughter, accountant, shopaholic, shoe hoarder, bag curator and makeup addict. But the role of ‘Blogger’ never really resonated with me until now. I always seemed to think that ‘Bloggers’ were these young, trendy individuals who had incredibly active social lives which they broadcasted on social media platforms. That was until, we decided to make the move to the Middle East, I began doing some research on what expat life was really about. And to my horror, mainstream sites didn’t really provide much insight. So I turned to personal blogs and boy did they help me. They gave me guidance, direction and support. A few of bloggers even forwarded me helpful checklists. And that was the first time I realised that ‘Bloggers’ were ordinary individuals who shared their experiences for the benefit of others. And since then I’ve used blogs for information on everything from travelling to household renovations.

And now 5 years later, I’ve decided to start a blog of my own. Why, you may ask? I started this Blog because, well, the 2200 characters in an Instagram post were not enough to express myself. That’s part of ‘why’, but the main reason for starting this blog is to share my experiences and my new finds with you on a more personal platform. Blogs have helped me gain answers to a  wide range of questions in the past and if by imparting some of the knowledge that I have gained,  I’m able to help someone else, then why not start a blog! I have a passion for all things fabulous. I love things that make me feel and look fabulous and that make my life easier. Also being a mum, a wife, a working woman and an expat has taught me so much and has exposed me to new challenges and experiences. And I want share all of this with you. That’s what inspired me to write this blog, my passion for all things fabulous and the ability to share my challenges and experiences with you.

Why should you take advice from me? Well, by no means am I an expert, but I do write based on what I know and from what I’ve experienced. I am old enough to have had life experiences but young enough to know how to share it with you on WordPress and social media! All my finds and favourites, are products that I have tried and tested personally and my reviews are a refection of that.

What is this Blog about? My blog is about everything I’m passionate about. I have a passion for all things fabulous, be it, beauty, travel, lifestyle and kids products. But I also intend to share my personal journeys and adventures (or should I say my misadventures), which tend to be quite entertaining.

So drop me a comment if you’d like to know anything about me and my story!

And stay tuned as I share my love of all things fabulous, one favourite at a time!
