First I want to say, that I really really hate writing these things! My name is Bel and I’m a thirty-something mum of two beautiful girls. I’m a self-confessed geek and I love all things Disney and Harry Potter especially. My hobbies include; reading books, watching movies and hanging out with my kids. I also enjoy throwing murder mystery parties for my friends and I, dressing up or doing cosplay, writing my blog, taking pictures and recently I’ve been baking and decorating cakes, along with sewing dresses and costumes.
My family consists of myself, my eldest daughter Megan (who is 11) and my youngest daughter Lily (who is 8). The latest edition to the family is my partner Chris (we’ve been together almost 4 years) and we all live together in his house about 25 minutes from Lincoln, Lincolnshire. Right now we just finished fixing up our house with the view to selling and moving even closer to Lincoln, because it will be better for the girls who go to school in that direction.
I stumbled on the name for my blog, quite by accident. I love the idea of my life diary, being made up of all the little journeys – not just literal, but even metaphorical. I also love quotes such as “Life is a Journey, not a Destination” along with “Happiness is a Journey, not a Destination”. I started blogging in January of 2013 but only blogged very casually. Since 2014 I’ve become a “proper blogger”, working hard to make my content interesting for all of my readers. That said, my blog is Lifestyle and really all that means is I blog about my life. I cover everything in this little space, from a weekly round-up, to cakes I made, dressed I’ve sewn, books I’ve read etc.
Our life is an up and down rollercoaster but I can honestly say I’ve never had a happier point in my life than right now. I’m living life and loving life, with my two girls and my partner – all of whom I love lots! I look forward to everything that’s to come, both in the short term and in the long.
