Hey! I’m Aisling, a 27-year-old HR professional from the outer edges of east London who moonlights as a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger (or at least, I will be when I have more than 10 posts!).
I started this blog as an outlet for my creative side – in other words, the sometimes nonsensical musings of my mind. Working in a corporate environment, it is easy to lose track of the beautiful things in life when you’re surrounded by grey walls and a distinct lack of natural lighting, so this blog reconnects me with the world that I love. Here you’ll find a mixture of posts about all of the things that I enjoy; in particular, fashion, lifestyle and writing.
Now, I don’t pretend that my posts will have anything transformative in them. In fact, as someone who regularly just browses blogs, magazines and social media looking for inspiration, I have essentially created this as an open diary of my thoughts on topics and items I find interesting. And unlike my teenage ones (#cringe), if this diary gives you some inspiration, then hey, I’ll consider that a little win.
In fact, in an ideal world, this would be what I would do for a living – write. It’s been an idea lurking in the back of my mind since I was 10 years old and reading Lord of the Rings for the first time, but through my transitions from English student to teacher to HR professional, I have never quite been brave enough to chuck it all in and just write. So, until I work up that courage, I’ll settle for writing this blog and trying to make it successful.
I hope you’ll stick around for awhile and join me whilst I begin to dabble in the world that is blogging!
