This is 30

This is 30

Welcome to my new blog! My previous blog was a bit of an eyesore so I thought 30 was the right time to invest some time (and a bit of money) into a new blog and enjoy a fresh start!


Whilst my posts will be predominantly based on beauty, I’ve added extra space for Life and Style posts to give me more space for things to write about. I got quite lazy with the previous blog and found it was difficult to keep up the writing when it was just about beauty!

Embracing 30

When I was in my early 20s, I dreaded 30. I associated 30-year olds with older women who spent most of their time at work or home and didn’t have much of a life. The Friends episode ‘The One Where They All Turn 30″ didn’t help either. I was wrong. Most of the women in their 30s I came to meet were still loving life, and even though some were married or had children, they definitely had a life. The nearer I got to 30 the more I realised that I did have my shit together (for the most part) and that 30 wouldn’t be too bad after all. Best of all, I’m going through it with all of my best friends, who are turning 30 like bosses and embracing it, and I intend to follow suit.

New blog


I started my first blog last year and it was definitely a bit of a mess. The layout was ugly and my featured images weren’t particularly strong so I wanted a fresh start and a lovely new layout, which was provided by the lovely creatives at Pipdig. They’re a lovely British company who make amazing blog layouts and I couldn’t be happier with mine. It’s lovely and sleek and has given me the professional-look blog I’ve been searching for. I hope you agree and enjoy reading the posts I’m going to be putting out.


I’ve got a lot to look forward to this year, and with a house to save for and a wedding to plan, I know it’s going to be a good one.
