My First Post

I'm delighted (and a little nervous) to say... This is my blog. 
Sounds weird saying that, but hey here I am, taking 20 minutes alone just deciding the opening sentence. 

I'm Beth, a student in London. All the basic stuff on me can be found here on my about me page. As its my first post, I think it's better if I make more of a punchy entrance rather than the typical name, age, 5 ft 4 stats....

This isn't my first blog...
A few years ago I created a blog dedicated to beauty. I blogged about products, hauls and tags. Unfortunately, after a year I was out of posts. I had a million and one ideas, however none related to beauty... So now, this beautiful breath of fresh air has arrived and I now have a blog I can do whatever I want on... *cue Regina George bitch gif*


I can't stand being in front of the camera...
This one isn't just personal to me, I'm sure there are hundreds of thousands of people who will utter those three simple words that instantly allow you to step away from the prying eyes of the lens... 
I'm not photogenic. 
And I can almost hear my friends laughing at this, because I'm definitely a selfie culprit, whenever the lighting is right, why not eh? (My personal Instagram for evidence)
But in terms of day to day.. I'm really, really not. That doesn't mean I'm ugly, because I know loads of beautiful people who just don't come across well on camera. I am certainly one of those people. I also know a few models... and any selfie with them is just a whirlpool of admiration and wanting-to-burn-the-photo-asap. 
Despite this... I have to try and be brave... Got some posts lined up with close ups and unflattering angles. Woo.. woo...

This post has been in 'my drafts' for 7 months...
Yes thats right. If theres one quality I hate to admit to, its that I am in fact a perfectionist. From cupcakes to name signatures, I spend way too long making sure everything is exactly how I want it. It does have its advantages (I'm never embarrassed to look back on *old* Facebook posts, because I was always wary of whether future Beth would deem them imperfect) and its disadvantages (7 months in the making..... 7 months!) Not only has this very small post re-written x1000 but I also already have a backlog of blog posts that I have created so I never miss an upload day, and even those have been edited on a weekly basis for the last half a year... Yes, I think I have issues too.

My upload days...
Due to my huge backlog of posts, I have decided to upload three times a week. I'm not sure whether this is over ambitious or not, but I'll eventually slip into a pattern that suits me/us well. So far I'm thinking Saturday mornings/Tuesdays/Thursdays. Sound good?
