PROPER INTRODUCTIONS

Well hello!

My name is Lesley and I'm 23 years young. I've recently graduated from university with a Journalism degree and right now I'm working as a freelance writer.

I originally started this blog in early 2011 and mostly wrote OOTD and wishlist posts. I haven't blogged for about a year and I decided it was time to start back up again! But I realized that so much has changed in my life and that I'm in such a different place now compared to two years ago - so I deleted my old posts, revamped my page and am starting fresh! :)

I plan to blog about my life and the things I love - style, music, fitness, food, academics, and general ramblings- which means plenty of outfit photos, product reviews, 'what I'm listening to' type posts, shots of what I'm eating (sorry I'm not sorry!), workout routines, philosophical rants and stories about personal experiences. I've just returned from a month-long trip around Europe, which helped me to figure out lots about myself, where I see my life heading, and what is important to me. It also means I have thousands of pictures and handfuls of stories and need a place to put them, so where better than here?

I realize that blogs can be seen by some as *narcissistic* or *self-involved* but I don't always think that is the case. If I learned anything from my studies, it is that times they are a-changin' and that, as much as many of us may moan about it (myself included), most things are no longer private or unplugged. Blogs are often fun to browse and do not necessarily reflect the only things that are going on in the blogger's life or that the blogger cares about.  I think that blogs are lovely to look to for inspiration, advice, or just for a few lolz really - and I hope that is how my blog will be seen, if anyone chooses to take a peek.

So all that being said, welcome back old followers, hello to any new ones who might stumble by, and please do leave me a comment or question if you feel like chatting - I promise I don't bite. xx
