The summer hols are well underway, but with Mr Bluebell taking off with my car to attend training courses in London my time off work has resulted in me becoming glued to the laptop trying to find a way to curb the boredom....voila! Into my life appeared the wonderful world of blogs - how had I not stumbled upon these before?! Quickly I have become obsessed with my new guilty pleasure and after four solid days of blog loitering have decided to take the plunge and become a blogger myself.
So perhaps I should tell you more about myself...? Tabitha Bluebell is (not really) my name, but bear with me, at the moment I'm just dipping my toe in the waters of blogspot, I'm sure one day I shall unveil myself. But for now, a quote from Hilary Mantel's 'Wolf Hall' sticks in my head...
"It is the absence of facts that frightens people: the gap you open, into which they pour their fears, fantasies, desires."
But I digress....I am 23 years old, work at a school and have a worryingly strong obsession with clothes, make up, hairstyles etc. I noticed the other day whilst shopping with my mum and older sister; 50% of things I picked up were followed with the comments "Cheryl has one just like this...." / "I saw Cheryl in a magazine wearing this style...". All of my handy tips were met with blank or (even worse) bored expressions. How could they not care what celebrities were wearing? And also, why did I know these things?! So fast realising that my family and my lovely Mr Bluebell do not share my love of all things cosmetic I have turned to blogspot to share my obsession with likeminded people. No, I don't claim to be an expert and no I don't plan to bore you all with news of what the fabulous Tweedy is currently wearing (I realise she can be a bit like Marmite). This blog is the creative hobby I've been craving and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing my musings.
For now however, I think I've rambled on far too much for a first entry which no doubt nobody will even read...if you do happen to stumble across my corner of the web, please leave a comment. Any feedback will be much appreciated.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday....it will soon be Friday again!
