Welcome to my blog and my very first blog post.
Much of what will follow in this post can also be found in About Me, but I wanted to do an introductory post too, so here it is.
If you want to get to know me and find out more about my blog, then read on.
I'm Siobhan Lloyd, I'm 29 and I live in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire with my lovely husband Adam and our mischievous 6-year old house cat, Effie.
I'm very much a Yorkshire girl at heart; I love holidays and seeing new places but I am always happiest at home in what I can only describe as the finest county in England. I love it so much that even our wedding was on Yorkshire Day!
I work for a nearby local council as an elections administrator. I love my job, but it is a world away from the kind of things I plan on talking about in my blog. I'm hoping blogging will give me the perfect chance to escape my day-to-day stresses.
I have a few passions in life and it's quite likely this blog will be quickly filled with posts about those passions. They include salsa dancing, spending time with my friends and family, makeup and beauty and a big love for all things 'vintage'. I'm also still floating on the cloud of being a newlywed; we married on 1st August 2015 and I am still completely wrapped up in a little bubble of wonderful memories of our perfect day. I know it's been and gone, but I can pretty much guarantee I'll be reminiscing and sharing the details of our big day with you via this blog.

Why did I start a blog? My love of blogs (as a reader) has grown and grown over the last few years. I accidentally stumbled into this world when Googling recommendations for a new concealer, and from there I became hooked. My Bloglovin' feed is now jam packed with some fabulous writers and I like nothing more than catching up with the latest posts with a coffee. Check out the link above to see some of my favourite blogs.
I gravitate towards beauty and makeup blogs, with the occasional fashion writer catching my eye too. Those are the kind of things I love to read, so that's the kind of direction I hope to take with this blog. I'm 30 next, so I figured now is as good a time as any to give blogging a go.
I always loved to write and I haven't had the chance to do much writing (for fun) over the last few years. Most of my free time over the past two years has been taking up planning our wedding, and before that I spent five years studying for my business degree. Free time is a recent luxury and I need a way to fill it!
See you soon!
