“People often say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realising that you are the beholder”. – Salma Hayak
This quote sums up my inspiration for this blog – that there is ALWAYS beauty to be found if you’re willing to open up and accept it in whatever form it comes in and that exactly is what I hope to portray throughout this blog.
Hello there!My name is Aoife, I’m 20 years old and from Meath, Ireland. I’m sure as time goes on, you’re going to get to know me a lot better through this blog (well, I hope anyway) but for the moment, I thought I’d leave you with a few basic bits! I’ve been reading blogs for years now and always found it fascinating the way bloggers were able to influence other people’s lives; whether this was by suggesting new things to try out, reviewing and recommending different places or even just using their own personal experiences to inspire other people. Creating a place where other people can gather together to find these components was always something I wanted to do, but I was kinda (*cough* completely) terrified of taking the plunge and setting up my own blog BUT I recently discovered the phrase “All we have is now”, so here I am, joining the big bad blogging world and making use of my insane beauty addiction! In a nutshell, I could be described as an organisational-obsessive-creative-nerd! I love reading, writing, music and performance (I’m convinced my life is set in a musical with the amount of drama of late – think Hairspray without the detention rooms and psycho parents!) so this blog is definitely going to be a bit of a mish-mash of my life… pretty much an online diary of my daily life! Expect anything and everything, but if you have any suggestions for posts you’d like me to do, please leave them in the comments as I’d love to hear them. Feel free to contact me at any time at: email@example.com or follow me on my social media: www.twitter.com/_aoifemalone http://instagram.com/_aoifee and of course, by following my blog here on wordpress to keep up with my daily life! Until then, aoifebelle xo
**I just want to add, any reviews I give are completely my own and in no way biased – I want this blog to be an honest source of advice so I will only recommend events or objects which I agree with and believe to be good! Anything which I am asked to review or speak about, I will point out and outline in my post! **
