Five things this blog is not

Hi there! So after many months of contemplating whether or not blogging was for me, and with a little bit of persuasion from my boyfriend, I've finally decided it's time to start my first beauty blog.

So to kick start my blog I thought the best way to introduce 'alyspace' was to tell you what this blog is not with a short launch post.

1) This blog is not going to be purely beauty related.
I don't think it will be anyway. I'm hoping to have some direction and theme with my content but also I don't want to feel restricted. If I have baked something and want to show it off, I probably will. If I've done something exciting and want to share, I probably will do that also. Whilst make-up and beauty products are kind of my thing, my life doesn't revolve around them (not entirely anyway!).

2) This blog is not going to be purely high-end reviews.
I absolutely love trying new high-end products and I am a self-admitted make-up snob, but I also get bored of reading the same reviews of the same hyped up high-end products. I think we all know that Urban Decay's new Naked Palette is going to be good - do I really need to make yet another post with the same swatches as everyone else? I have this dream of going into Boots and picking up a bunch of barely talked about beauty products and finding my new staple. Is that too much to ask for?!

3) This blog is not going to be perfect at first.
I feel like this is self-explanatory. I'm a first time beauty blogger and currently only equipped with an iPhone and some fairy lights. It's going to take me some time to figure out my writing style, what I like to blog about and also build up a decent kit.

4) This blog is not going to be supported by a youtube channel.
Youtube and filming just isn't for me. I'm really not that comfortable in front of a camera, nor do I have the appropriate equipment. I've contemplated Youtube before as I absolutely love watching certain channels, but I just think I would be rubbish at it and not enjoy it. Never say never, but at this point in my life I just feel like Youtube won't be my thing.

5) This blog is not going to be about getting the most followers.
Don't get me wrong, I am really excited about getting involved with the beauty blogger community but I am not creating this as a way to get my name out. At the end of the day, I just want to have a new hobby that I can throw myself into!

So, I hope you found out a few things about me and what I intend to create! I'm hoping this blog will be active just after Christmas or perhaps beginning of the New Year, I've got a couple of ideas of what I want to post about first and as I'm currently not at university I have a few weeks free to get into this project.

Fingers crossed that this goes the way I am hoping!

Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year,

  1. Same here number 3,4,5. I intend to create the blog, just because I love to. But I also love to get involved with community and know new people.

    Love, Dayu
