For my first blog post I thought I would tell you all a little bit about me and why I have chosen to set up this blog, so here we go…
My name is Alana, I am 21 and from Dublin, Ireland. I am a final year student midwife and I adore every aspect of midwifery. I am in love with fashion (especially bargain hunting and spending every penny I have on clothes, shoes and accessories), make up, hair and all things beauty. I am an avid gym goer and try to eat as healthily as I can, but I am partial to an aul treat (every day of the week) but hey we’ve all got to live a little!
I’ve been toying with idea of setting this blog up for over a year now but have always been afraid of what people would think. Today, I decided to bite the bullet and I just thought who cares? Who cares what people think of this or me? It’s something I want to do as a hobby, something to work on and something to improve at. I think I have something share, which some may find interesting, and really, I just want to show an average girls life. I am doing this for myself, to build my self-confidence and be happy being me! And if it takes up all of my time and curbs my shopping habit that’s also a plus!
There are a few topics I plan to post about here such as fashion, beauty (I’m not an expert but there’s a few tips and tricks I can share), travel, and more. I don’t expect anything to come of this and I certainly don’t expect many people to be reading, but I am doing this to share the things I love 🙂
If you find yourself stumbling upon this I hope you enjoy reading and seeing my day-to-day life, follow me on Instagram @alanagarton to see more.
