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

  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” 🙈

  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!

  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 😊

  11. Hi Kelly, lovely to meet you! I love get to know me posts because you can learn how similar you are to someone – I too have more shoes than I know what to do with, and you’ll always find me choosing a night in in front of Netflix instead of out partying it up. I look forward to reading more of your posts!

  13. Love! It’s nice to get to know you! My name is Ashley, and I’ve had my blog for about 3 years. All these years and just the beginning of this month I actually started to really promote it and put it out there. So before that, I was just writing when I wanted, and now I got great content that i hope I never lose! Sometimes it’s for the best! Good luck!

  14. I didn’t see this post was published several months back until I was already enjoying it. I don’t know if you remain interested in details of this kind, but you ask for a fact to help understand who is replying to you. A fact about me is that friends of my parents got me interested in the late sci-fi author Douglas Adams about the time I was beginning junior high.

    To start borrowing more books, I had to earn a library card and it is a nice memory for me because I know when I was enjoying The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, for the first time.

    My name is Sandra and I am a travel blogger. One interesting fact about me? Hmm… I am the owner of 2 beautiful rats! If I could, I would attach here some cute photos of them! ♥ They are really lovely!

  16. Nice to meet you Kelly! I know a few people who have worked as air cabin crew. You get to travel loads but it’s tiring and a real strain on a ‘normal life’, not something I was ever envious of, so I think you made a good choice!
