Hi my loves, this is my first post on this brand-new website/blog, my little space on the internet, which along with my YouTube channel, I’d like to refer to as my ‘happy place’.
I feel happy, nervous, super-duper-trooper excited, and tiny little butterflies fluttering in my tummy, all at the same time! I’m beyond happy to launch my own website, I put my heart and soul into it, and I hope you’ll love it as much, if not more, as I do. For starters, for the first post on this blog, I’d love for you to know all about me and my story, in case you’re a new reader, so, here you go!
What ? When ? How ? Once upon a time, a couple years ago, in a land not so far away (that we refer to as the National Capital of India) lived a teenage girl, who was beyond obsessed with fashion, beauty, and all things aesthetically pleasing. She collected piles of Cosmopolitans, flipping through them day & night, and loved the creative processes of the fashion industry, but what she did love equally was, the World Wide Web. Combine a fashion geek, and a social media enthusiast, and you’ve got yourself some Fashion Blogger concoction. She soon realized her calling, and started the creative processes by signing up on Blogger, and posting away. Her blog was her hobby, and her posts lacked a proper schedule, which slowly gave rise to her drifting away from the blog altogether. Cut to, 4 years later, she re-launched the same blog, The Pastel Journal, a year after launching her YouTube channel (where she still rambles every week) and decided to never stop since.
But as all good things come to an end, and you’ve to keep re-inventing yourself, and move higher up the ladder, so did that blog, when I bid it a loving goodbye, and moved to a newer & better cyber-space with the launch of my own website/blog.
Now that you know my story, and how this blog came into being, here are some fun facts about me, to get to know the average girl next door in me, more :
