Its taken me a month of Sundays to actually post something. I’ve been so nervous about writing a blog, lots of self-doubt and reluctance, but then I thought, well, everyone starts from somewhere, and this is the exact reason why i wanted to start blogging, to do something different!
I love change and trying new things that push me into uncharted waters, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone, as well as do something for myself other than exercise, as thats really the only outlet I have to get into a zone. I love music, art, books and makeup, I have always loved taking photos from when I was a child. My father is a self-taught photographer and gave me my first brownie camera when i was 8 years old. Taking photos of my makeup and talking about them, even if briefly on my Instagram page @lulus_palette has been the most random, unexpected endeavour, I really didn’t think I would be getting my creative juices going when I started my account, in fact, I did it to just see what happened, I had no idea about content, and pleasing pictures, but I caught on quick and so did my excitement to get better, and learn about this whole new world of beauty on Instagram. In a short time I realised that I really loved this new community of people, who were encouraging and OMG…actually liked my photos and gave me positive feedback. Ive made lovey new friends and find every day inspiring, I love seeing everyones perspective through their lens and look forward to seeing their pictures daily.
I wanted an outlet to talk about all the great and not so great products I have purchased and used, as well as share some of my other passions in life other than makeup. I love to talk about anything and everything with a desire to write and tell a story, plus I’m over hearing my friends telling me “Just go ahead and bloody do it already Lu!!!” I kind of procrasinate when I’m unsure and not confident.
My friends and two very kind bloggers have given me the impetus to take the bull by the horns and listen to the blogger within, and give it a crack, so here I am, no idea, with plenty of enthusiasm and fudging my way through it all.
If you have made it this far….THANKYOU!!!
Much love LuLu XO
