TIME TO REFRESH + LIFE UPDATE


So after yet another stint of absence from blogging and a more relaxed (none existent) approach to social media, I've finally got my arse into gear and am back feeling more motivated, organised and passionate than ever. As you can see Born to Blend has had a total refresh, revamp and a right good seeing to. In all honesty, it wasn't really that bad - I'm just never happy and continuously want to tweak the most insignificant issues and am always aiming to improve on every aspect in any way that I can, well aren't we all? I've been very fortunate to recently get a brand spanking new desktop PC to replace my slightly shoddy laptop. I'm still to finish decorating my to-be office, but just having my computer all set up has already made a world of difference to my dedication to my little space on the internet. I promise you won't go unused and ignored again, blog!

I'm reverting to posting once a week, every Thursday, just to cut down my workload so I still have time for everything else like work and general home life. I've also created a dedicated Born to Blend Twitter and Instagram, so they are kept completely separate to my personal accounts. If you've not popped by yet, feel free to come and say hello! For those of you who may not know - in November 2016 I qualified as a Makeup Artist and am currently seeking roles within the TV, film, music and fashion industry. I still work full time in fashion retail (it pays the bills, OK) but I'm hoping this will be the year of positive change and accomplishment. My posts will continue to be beauty/makeup based - hopefully with a little professional knowledge now that I'm qualified! There may be the odd (attempted) fashion, lifestyle, fitness or blogging related post thrown in every now and then too. I hope you love the refreshed and totes profesh, new look Born to Blend as much as I do! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Sending you all best wishes and positive vibes for the year ahead.

2017 I'm coming for ya!

  6. The idea about separate Social Media accounts is so good, I hate the feeling that my followers that don't read my blog get annoyed at me sharing things!! but then again, there is an unfollow button for a reason, haha!

    1. Yes very true! I like to keep a theme and it was just so hard because I wanted to share regular photos with my friends and just felt I never saw any of my friends posts because I followed that many different bloggers and brands. Thanks for reading :) xox

  7. That planner is so pretty!!

    I feel really awkward continually posting on twitter/Instagram about my blog so I made separate accounts but I just couldn't get into the swing of using separate accounts so I guess my followers either have to like it or lump it haha! Lovely post xx
