Get to know me


Hello everyone and welcome to my very first post here! I have some really exciting ideas for this space but I thought what better way to start than to get to know me a bit better so here are a few facts about me.

My name is Kelly (in case you couldn’t tell from the title) and I’m currently 24 years old. I’ve been a blogger on and off for the past six years but earlier in the year decided to close my main blog down as I had fallen out of love with it and found I was just doing content for the sake of it. I very much fell into the “blogging made me do it” category which was not only time consuming but expensive too!

For the past four years I have also run another blog which focuses solely on history. Whilst it was a challenge at times running two blogs, I felt it was important to keep them separate because they have two completely different types of audience.

I’m obsessed with shoes and have so many pairs, some of which I am ashamed to say I’m yet to wear. I’d love nothing more than in the future to be able to display my shoes in cute cabinets for all to see. For now though, they are scattered everywhere and anywhere. I’m also obsessed with butterflies and love wearing tops with butterfly print on, inspired jewellery and always stop to watch them as they fly past too!

Talking of flying, I’m also obsessed with aviation and for quite a while, wanted to be air cabin crew. I decided against this in the end when I realised how hard the training was and how much you had to remember on a daily basis. I do however still love taking IMG_8633photographs of planes and attend many airshows throughout the summer months.

A couple of years ago, I bought a better camera to help me take photos and have since been learning how to use it. I’m hoping that as my blog progresses, so will my photography.

I’ve been lucky enough to visit some amazing places over the years and can’t wait to share my experiences and tips with you on this blog. Whether its days out, weekends away or holidays in some amazing countries, I’ve loved every minute of it.

I have a dog named Trixie who is now five years old and I absolutely adore her. She is a Patadale cross Jack Russell who loves nothing more than long walks in the countryside followed my snuggles on the sofa when we return.35508636_10209415620266561_4646815144351891456_n

I’m very much a shopaholic and can be very impulsive. I’ve lost count of the times I’ve bought something, to then wonder what on earth I was thinking when I got home. This is definitely the case with make up! I’m forever buying new pieces of make up to try and yet, whilst I enjoy experimenting with make up, I don’t wear it everyday.

I’d much rather enjoy a cosy night in with a takeaway and a film rather than a late night out somewhere drinking. I’m very much that person that by nine at night, the pjs will be on. That’s probably also the reason why I own more pjs than any other item of clothing!

Cosy nights in wouldn’t be complete without my amazing boyfriend Andy, who also happens to be a great photographer, so any outfit shots you see on my blog will probably be thanks to him. 41479908_10209889031421544_4602219579794522112_n

So that is just a few facts about me that I wanted to share with you to get me back into blogging. I’m not entirely sure what my schedule will be yet as I think I’m just going to take it as it comes and write when I’m in the mood to.

I’d love to know something interesting about you so leave one fact in the comments below.

Bye for now

  1. Trixie looks adorable, I’m loving the purple bandana too, very cool! I’m with you on preferring cosy nights in over going out. I love my comfy pjs and relaxing on the sofa with all the snacks and a film or series. Looking forward to reading your days out and holiday posts too, always love getting inspiration for my next adventure. Lovely post Kelly! ❤ xx

    1. It’s good to have different interests isn’t there. I do get a bit of stick to be one of the only females in a male orientated environment but I don’t care because I enjoy it 🙂


  2. Ok, first of all, I love Trixie she is so cute! Second I totally understand the love for shoes and shopping! Now I’m trying so hard to stop being a compulsive buyer.
    I’m so happy that you are still blogging, after many years and two other blogs!

    1. It’s hard to stop buying isn’t it. I’ve got so many wish lists on the go and I always end up buying so much in just one day because “I’ve been good the rest of the month” 🙈


  3. aw such a great first post! Trixie is so adorable omg + I’m the same way in regards to PJ’s haha, I have so many lazy day tshirts haha. Good luck with all things blog related, I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for your future posts xx

  4. Was lovely to get to know you! Trixie is super cute. I think aviation is really interesting too. Although I’ve never wanted to be a cabin crew member, I find flying and planes really interesting and love a good plane documentary (listen to how nerdy I sound omg!)

  5. It is so nice to get to know you, your dog is adorable and i am the kind of person who likes to stay in on a saturday night to watch a movie 😛

  6. Welcome back Kelly! I too, had a big break from blogging. I took almost 2 years out because again I fell out of love with it and started focussing too much on stats and needing to post rather than posting because I wanted too. It’s nice to have had that time out to reflect and come back knowing you can learn from mistakes. I’m excited to see how you progress and will be supporting you all the way!


  7. Welcome back! I am so glad you came back to blogging but always make sure you do it for you and you write about things you enjoy or otherwise, it just becomes another job! Trixie is so cute! I can’t wait to read some more of your blog posts.


  8. Great post! I really love your photography. I can’t wait to see what else your lovely blog has to offer. Love your work so much. Great site as well.


  9. I can definitely relate to that “have too many shoes ” part. My boyfriend always says to me whenever I’m buying new ones that i don’t need them. But hey, you match your outfit with your shoes. Haha
    Love you blog! Followed you 😊


    1. Haha my partner says the same. Or he will complain when I say something is too expensive with his response being “but you’ll spend £50 on a pair of shoes” 😂😂
      Thank you 😀


  10. I am Kaddie and I blog over at Gratisoul about life, positive vibes and self love!!
    I wish you all the best for your future endeavors! ❤
