Why I Started a Blog + 50 Facts About Me

"I want to share my passions with you."
For as long as I can remember I've always needed to express myself in a creative way. Whether it was reading books, writing or taking pictures, I've constantly looked for new ways to express my thoughts and feelings. As I grew older I discovered and my love for writing became bigger than ever. My blog is the perfect place for me. It's a combination of a number of different things, things that I am passionate about individually; writing about what I love, coding web pages, photography and social media to name a few. I've owned numerous different blogs but I've never managed to keep my attention focused on them. I think I was too young to really know what I wanted to do or too young to set myself a proper blogging goal. But now I'm here.

I started this blog because I wanted to share my passions with you, and it's fair to say I have quite a few! Cruelty-free beauty, lifestyle, photography, travel and veganism are just a small number of topics I write about. And since I haven't ever written a proper introduction about myself, I thought that starting with 50 facts about me was the perfect opportunity! Here we go...

  5. I'm the fussiest eater I know
  6. I don't have any siblings
