Hello, it's me...

It's me!

Welcome to rawrrbecca.co.uk! I am so excited to come back into the blogging world, and am absolutely buzzing about it! And yes, I hope I've got that Adele song stuck in your head now.

There’s a chance that you’ve visited my old blog (if you want to be a stalker, some of my old content is still floating around the archives), there’s also a strong chance you haven’t. To break the ice, and get things going, I thought I’d write a little bit of an introduction for you, fabulous reader of mine.

Grab yourself a cuppa and we’ll begin.

I started writing back in 2014 during study leave for my A-Levels. Yes, I know, I should have been revising, but hey, if a girl wants to write, she gotta write! My content used to be pretty makeup and beauty focused. It was something I was exploring at the time and learning about. I loved those days, but now I want to write about more! I’ve grown up a lot since there and have got so many thoughts and ideas floating around my head, I need to share them!

At the start of 2017, I was feeling pretty pants about everything. I was really down in the dumps about a lot of things and felt like I was losing control of everything. I wasn’t having the best time, and on top of that, I felt so unenthused about my blog I thought it was over. For good!

Thankfully, that’s not the case. I spent a lot of time working out what I liked and what I didn’t like about things going on in my life.  I tried to make changes where I could so that I’d be as happy as I can be. There was no miracle cure, let that be clear, but things are feeling a lot better right now, and I’m in a much better place mentally. Self-care is important!

So, the important question is, what’s to come in regards to my blog?


Remember me saying I wasn’t enjoying my blog? Well, that’s because of the content I was producing. I needed fresh ideas, I wanted to learn new things, and I wanted to widen my horizons. I’m aware that sounds terribly cringe and so very cliche, but hey ho, sometimes life is cliche. Whatevs!

Over the last couple of months, I’ve made a real effort to absorb content that I find interesting. I’ve buried my head in content from the likes of Emma Gannon, Chloe Plumstead, Lily Melrose, Grace Victory, Katie Snooks, Louise Pentland, Sara Tasker, Sophia Amoruso, Olivia Purvis, the list is as long as my arm, honestly. And have been so inspired by these lovely ladies. I feel like I’ve got my mojo back, and have felt so motivated to write again.

In regards to new content, I’ve got a lot of exciting things planned for everyone who stumbles across my lil blog. Ever heard of bullet journaling? If that’s down your street, STAY TUNED, because let me tell you, I am obsessed! There will be many a post on bullet journaling. I’m also going to be talking about books I’ve read and have thought they’re worth sharing, podcasts that I’m enjoying, food posts, opinion pieces, career chat, seriously guys, you’re in for a treat.

I’m really excited about rebooting my blog and am so excited for you to come along for the ride. Since it’s a bank holiday I’m going to be giving you a splendid new post every day this weekend. I know, such fun! I hope you enjoy them as much I loved creating them. Thank YOU for reading my blog today.

Much Love,

P.s. Come and stalk me on the interwebs, I won’t bite!
