New blog up and running

Just a quick post to let you know that my new blog, Life Outside the M25, is now up and running. I’ve published an introductory post for now and will be publishing a post about my moving and settling experience, as well as a first impression in the next few days, before moving on to sharing all my new experiences with you.

If you would like to follow you have the option of Google or BlogLovin’ and I will also post updates on my existing Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ accounts.

A very late post: Birchbox February 2014

Excuse how late this post is, February’s Birchbox arrived the week of the wedding and with finalising the details and relocating, writing my review landed at the bottom of my to do this. That said, I was very close to striking it off the list completely, that's how unexcited I was with the products.
I expected February to be about Valentine’s and love, maybe include a nice smelling body oil and a good lipstick but the theme was fashion week. It doesn't seem that long ago that there was a fashion related box, which again I remember being very unimpressed by. There is nothing wrong with the products included per se, but I'm starting to get bored of the same sorts of products popping up each month.

Getting on track

Just a quick post to let everyone know that I arrived in Muscat safely and am hopefully over the hardest part of the settling in process!
The apartments here are mostly unfurnished so the first week was spent shopping buying all the essential things that you don’t realise you need until you miss them.

I didn’t have internet access for a week, which you will hopefully appreciate was awful. I knew that I needed the internet for work and obviously blogging, but how reliant I am on it as a form of entertainment and my link to family and friends I didn’t know, so I did suffer a few days feeling totally isolated.

I’m still in the process of setting up the second blog, I plan on writing about my moving experience, how I am settling and then of course sharing all my experiences here. I do wonder if I am best just changing this blog into a lifestyle one, after all Discovering Beauty doesn’t have to mean just makeup, but let me know what you think.

I have a few beauty posts lined up too, a very late review of February’s Birchbox and other reviews and, once I have some good pictures together, I will also do a wedding post just to share my hair and makeup looks and tips.

Thank you for sticking by me in the down time and for all the lovely comments and well wishes on my last post and on Twitter and Instagram, I promise will be back on track soon!
