Hello, hello! Welcome to my new blog! 🙂
For those of you who stumbled upon this website purely by accident or on the way down your internet search hole, my name is Siobhan and I love to write. For the past several years, I’ve had my own pretty little space on the world wide web, one of which I could share my thoughts and opinions on all things beauty, life and otherwise. This place was a blog called Beauty Bylaws. However, over the last, say, year and a half, I have posted on Beauty Bylaws I think once, or maximum, twice. I’d get questions from people who see me in everyday life as well as from readers asking if I was ever going to post again or if I’d decided to abandon ship. Well, I’ve realized over the past few months that I wasn’t only neglecting my blog because life had gotten much busier, but rather because I was kind of “over” Beauty Bylaws and it’s brand.
I think because I started Beauty Bylaws during such a weird time of my life (early 2011, after a few years filled with some major health struggles), I’ve always subconsciously associated my blog with that time. Honestly, though, while I’ll always obviously remember that time of my life and it is, indeed, a part of who I am and my story, I kind of wanted a fresh start. It’s been 6 years since I started Beauty Bylaws and I can say that I have grown as a woman immensely since my first post. Recently, I’ve wanted a brand new, shiny space to reflect on things, serious or silly. I’ve wanted a space that personifies who I am now, and who I yearn to be. And, mostly, I’ve wanted a space that was all mine, because I have realized that 20-year-old me started a blog only partially for me, but mostly for others. It may sound selfish but I would like this new space to be primarily about my readers & I, and what I want to write about, not about what will get the most hits. Somewhere with no fluff, but rather is clean, simple and gives off good vibes. Somewhere a little more genuine and pure, where my readers and I can become a little family, even if I end up only having 2 readers! And so, with all of that in mind, Simply Siobhan was born!
So, what can you expect to see on SS? Well, I’m still just as beauty and makeup obsessed as I was 6 years ago, so I will write a fair bit about beauty, while also incorporating fun stuff like home decor, entertaining, recipes and travel into my writing. I’m not a fashionable person by half, but I will share the odd OOTD when I’m feeling fly(say that 5 times fast)and also what fashiony things I’m coveting at any given point. If there is any topic you would like me to touch on or a certain kind of post that you would like me to write about, please do not be shy! You can ALWAYS say hello or share your opinions or post requests via email (hello@simplysiobhan) or by visiting my contact page.
As for now, I’m off to brainstorm new post ideas! Thank you very much for visiting my little corner of the internet and for reading this first post. You are more than welcome to join the family, I hope to see you again! 🙂
