Going from a Beauty Blogger to a…

…a lifestyle blogger, travel blogger, person that just writes their random thoughts on the internet?

When I started this blog back in 2012 it’s sole focus was all things beauty. I was obsessed with reading beauty blogs and when I finally decided to take the plunge and dabble in a spot of blogging myself it seemed like the natural choice for me.
Flash forward nearly three and a half years and I don’t even recognise my blog from what it use to be. Even though I still love beauty, posts about it are few and far between. You only have to click on the ‘Beauty Notes’ section of my blog and look at the dates to establish that. These days that isn’t what LMC is about anymore (and believe me it’s not a bad thing).
My little corner of the internet has evolved into something so much more and I couldn’t be prouder.  I like to think of my blog as more of a diary of my life now, charting its ups and downs, with a few reviews thrown in for good measure.  I get much more of a kick out of writing my ‘Things that made me happy lately’ posts than reviewing a singular product anymore.

Another change I’ve noticed is that I’ve become a lot less materialistic.  My blogging goals use to include having a tower full of makeup and while that is what has happened, I can’t remember the last time I actually went out and spent lots of money on things to fill it with.  I’m much happier diving into the draws and using up what I currently have.  In fact this is super obvious as I’ve somehow managed to get down from having 11 different bottle of foundation to just 4.  My beauty routine has also been streamlined and as I get older – the ‘less is more’ thing is happening more often.  Don’t get me wrong, there’s always the odd occasion when the pull of a product is still too much and the overwhelming urge to dash to Selfridges to purchase it gets the better of me but these days that ‘urge’ usually comes after reading about 20 reviews, watching a few videos and mentally doing the bank balance maths – ok ‘urge’ is the wrong word!
Blogging has evolved so much over the last few years after what seems to be an explosion and there have been a few occasions where I’ve been ready to throw in the towel, yet I keep coming back for more. Why? Because I guess it’s the first time I’ve ever been able to express myself in a way that is just me and my thoughts without any interuptions.  It’s now my comfort blanket in the adult world and even though I only write about twice a week now, I still love those few hours of escapism.
Are you a blogger? Have you seen your blog evolve over time? I’d love to know what you’ve gone too and from!
