new beginnings...

I can't believe that this is the first post in my new blog! I have been thinking about setting this blog up for about... three years now but every time I thought about entering into the world of blogging I didn't have a clue where to start. I think this feeling of confusion stemmed from the fact that whilst at university I was writing an essay a week and at the time the idea of writing for pleasure was not up there on my list of priorities. However, after a year of working "in the real world" I feel as though now is the right time! 

I'm not a blogger "noob" however. I have enjoyed reading both my friends' blogs and those of random writers for a long time. I love being able to search around and discovering somebody who is passionate about their opinions and sharing their views with strangers. I think this is one reason why I am fascinated by the concept of blogging. It is a great vehicle for self-expression whether the people are intending to write for the masses or whether it serves as a medium for self-catharsis. 

When trying to decide what genre to classify my blog I didn't want to solely be a fashion-come-recipe-come-review-come-travel (you catch my drift) blog. I would rather write about a melange of topics to reflect the things that fill my life. I am a twenty-something living and working in central London and it can be in a word: hectic. But, I do love everything about it and think it's about time I properly reflect on it. 

I hope that you enjoy reading my blog, please comment and leave your messages!

Hasta pronto!


P.S. If you're wondering about the title of the blog, it comes from one of my favourite songs of all time Blue Light by Bloc Party.
