Well, things are looking a wee bit different around here aren’t they?! After months of deliberating, a lot of talking about it and not a lot of doing it, I finally took the plunge and I now present to you, the brand new version of All Things Beautiful… Jessie-Ann.co.uk.
2018 was a turning point for me and my blog, and 2019 will be the year that I really hone in on new passions of mine and write all about them. It’s now been nearly six years since I started writing and producing content for this little space on the internet, and I still love it as much now as I did when I was obsessively writing posts about beauty buys back then, despite how different it is and how many times I’ve teetered on the edge of kissing this platform goodbye. But over the last two years I feel I’ve changed and grown in so many ways, and I want my blog content to reflect this too.
When I first started blogging, I was all about fashion and beauty. I loved makeup, hair products, nail polishes. I bought clothes every time I popped into town, and I can safely say I was 100% caught up in the “blogger hype” of buying new beauty releases as soon as they came out and buying things just to make blog content. Looking back now, I’d buy products just because everybody else was, not because I actually needed, or really even wanted them. I’d end up spending so much money on clothes and makeup that I’d hardly even wear, and it makes me feel terribly guilty and a little bit shit.
Now though, I’m all about experiences. I spend my hard-earned cash on travel, actually doing things rather than having things, and, of course, over the past few years I’ve saved really hard for the flat I now call my own. I’m no longer tapping away at my laptop having shot flatlays of my latest beauty purchases, instead I’m writing about the things I’ve done, the plans I have, the memories I’ve made, and the photos I’ve snapped along the way.
So, what’s to come from jessie-ann.co.uk? Well, be sure to expect your usual lifestyle ramblings, posts all about what I’m up to and what I’m thinking about at the moment, and you can expect a lot more travel and fitness too. As I hurtle towards my 30s I’m making it my mission to see more of the world, and I want to take this blog on the journey with me.
I’m really looking forward to this next chapter, and hopefully to the things that come along with it. I always love having a space like this to put my all into, and I think 2019 will be a really great year for blogging.
Lots of love. xoxo
