Hi everyone, (god that was an original way to start a first
blog post wasn’t it?)
Believe it or not I actually spent a ridiculous amount of
time wondering how to begin this post. I couldn’t help but to keep thinking to
myself, what do I say to people that have no idea who I am? What if nobody
cares what I have to say? So before I talk myself out of this whole thing
(believe me it took an embarrassingly long time to grow a pair of balls and
actually start this) it’s probably a good idea to tell you a little bit about
myself and why I’m starting this blog.
My name is Ellie (always a good place to start) and without
sounding like a massive cliché, I am absolutely obsessed with fashion and
beauty. I am one of those people that could – and more often than not do –
spend hours and hours scouring my favourite blogs, watching my favourite
YouTubers latest videos and mentally making a never ending wish list of all the
items that I
want need in my life! And that really, when it comes down
to it, is why I thought it was about time I did my own blog. If even one person
could read something I write and find it enjoyable, interesting, useful etc. (please god let me have at least one reader,
please god let me have at least one reader!) the way I do with other people’s
blogs, then it would make this whole thing worthwhile!
I’m not doing those extremely important things
above, I’m actually a small part (admittedly an extremely small/probably
insignificant part, but a part nonetheless) of what goes into some of the shows
on your TV screen. I work in TV production and having just finished a stint on
BBC’s Young Apprentice and having a couple of weeks off before going back to
work on The X-Factor for the live shows, I thought this would be a good time to
take all of my favourite things in life: anything fashion/beauty related, TV production
and writing, and combine them all together. And with that I bring you “the Elle
next door” I hope if anyone does eventually see this, that you enjoy my blog.
Please leave a comment or ask any questions you have, I’d love to hear from you
P.S if you got to the end of the post and see this then a) thank you and b) i’m extremely impressed, that was one hell of a ramble!
