About Me


Firstly, I just want to thank every single person that has clicked on this page in an attempt to get to know me a little better. I have been blogging now since 2013 and it is such a large and important part of my life. For a brief period in 2018, I was struggling with my mental health and I made the very cutthroat decision to delete my blog along with all of the posts that I had ever written. For a period, it felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders, but I very quickly missed having something to channel my energy into and have a creative outlet, which is why I am back with… The Reluctant Blog.

I first started my blog back in 2013 because I simply wanted to help people. I was buying makeup quicker than I could actually use it. Some of the makeup that I was purchasing was amazing and others were complete flops. I didn’t want people to make the same mistakes that I made when it comes to buying makeup and I wanted to help people out. I have always been obsessed with makeup and I even took a cosmetology course in college, so I feel like I know what I am talking about when it comes to makeup.

From there, my blog quickly evolved from just being about beauty to incorporating fashion too. I have to admit that my love for fashion and everything expensive has eclipsed my love for beauty and it is one of my main passions. I started writing about the specific overpriced items that I was purchasing and to my surprise, people seemed to actually really enjoy reading about it. My blog had evolved into a perfect blend of beauty, fashion and lifestyle, which I absolutely adored.

Over my years of blogging, there were many bumps in the road. My personal life was a little turbulent to say the least and with my OCD and anxiety, I was left unable to cope. Even though blogging was something that I loved doing, I knew that I had to cut as many pressures out of my life as possible, which is why I made the incredibly hard decision to delete my blog and regain some of the personal time that I had previously been plugging into my blog.

So, this is my second rodeo when it comes to blogging. I have told myself that this time around I am going to have a much more relaxed approach to how I manage my blog. I want to write about the things that I am passionate about and hopefully strike up a conversation here and there about the things that really matter to me.
