Introducing my blog and I

So after many hours of staring aimlessly at my laptop screen, I think I may have finally built up enough courage to write my first ever blog post. Let me just apologise in advance if I start rambling on, because this post is going to be an utter mishmash of nervous thoughts popping into my head. I suppose I should start with a 'welcome' and introduce myself, and my blog.

Well hello there, I'm Lauryn, I'm 14 and I live in Kent, England. So in order to make getting to know me short and sweet, here is a little sentence describing me. I am a devoted bookworm, constant tea drinker, absolute fashion/beauty enthusiast, obsessed with anything vintage/floral and I absolutely adore fairy lights.

Now, enough about me, lets get to what this is about - my blog! Creating my blog was a very spur-of-the-moment thing, I was bored on a rainy day (I know it is supposedly summer- but lets face it - this is Britain) and I stumbled across the website bloglovin' where I came across some lovely blogs, which taught me that there is so much more to blogging than writing about your daily (but in many people's cases, mainly uneventful) lifestyle. This is not to say that I haven't thought about blogging before, the idea has always appealed to me but I've never really looked into it enough to become so intrigued I felt I had to create a blog.

oops. Just realised how much I've already rambled on, so let me finally introduce my blog - funfairs and fairydust. Throughout my time in the bloggingsphere - (I think I may just have created a new bit of blogging lingo!) I aim to post regularly about beauty, fashion and lifestyle. (Yes, I know these are pretty typical) so in order to add a bit of quirkiness I aim to throw in a few book and film reviews, as well as a few DIY arty-crafty tips here and there!

There, my first blog post complete, phew! It already feels like I've climbed a mountain in my imaginary bloggersphere! I hope you have enjoyed reading my first ever post, and if so, lets keep it that way! If you have any feedback or questions, please feel free to contact me either via email at or via twitter - @ffairsfairydust always happy to help! :-)

Thank you for spending a few minutes reading this rather lengthy and pretty uninteresting post of mine, but I really do appreciate it!

Much love, Lauryn x
