And So It Begins...

Saturday, 14 January 2017

I've been pondering over how to start this post for a while now and I've typed out, and quickly deleted, a few cringeworthy sentence starters. As it's my first ramble I want it to be a good one and explain what this blog will be about....but I have no idea where to start.

I've been unsure about creating a blog for a long time but I've finally taken the plunge (what a good word) so here I am writing my first post. After what feels like ages of reading other people's blogs, I've thrown caution to the wind and just thought why not?

There are a few reasons why I've been so eager to blog but mainly I want to 
combine my love of writing and photography to share my thoughts on all things life related. I've never been able to keep diaries while growing up , I always seem to forget about them or get bored, so I thought this would be the perfect way to keep a record of things. I've had to take a year out after finishing my GCSEs (for personal reasons) so I need something to focus on or a mini project to throw myself into as I have quite a lot of time on my hands.

So how do I introduce myself without this sounding like a crappy tinder profile or a formal job interview? I'm Olivia, but everyone calls me Liv, I'm nearly 17 and I live in Wales. I absolutely LOVE books, makeup, photography, music and baking so they're what I plan to write about. I'm also someone who loves giving advice so prepare for long rambles about a range of topics. This is also where I plan to document my travel adventures as I'm keen to explore the world in the future and I want somewhere where I can talk about my trips and display my photos.

I'm that really annoying person who is always taking photos of everything when I'm out and about with people. Honestly, if I see a nice bush (the plant kind of course) it ends up in my camera roll. I just think there's nothing better than looking back on old snaps to remind you of your favourite moments with your favourite people. 

Although I'm not sure than anyone will even read this I want to turn this into a hobby. I know it's something I will really love and this can be my own little corner of the web that I can escape to and make my own. 
So if you do happen to stumble over this blog, I want you to get snug, grab a cuppa and delve into it from the comfort of wherever you may be.
