Why I’m Moving Away From Beauty Blogging

Why I’m Moving Away From Beauty Blogging

I’ve been blogging for over two years now (I sort of missed my anniversary on my actual blog but I do have a giveaway on my twitter if you’re interested in entering) and since day one my content has been pretty beauty driven. However, as I’m now in full time employment I don’t have time to play around with makeup all the time, so with the exception of the impulse purchases I infrequently make, I am moving more into the lifestyle realm.

I still love trying new products when I get the chance, particularly skincare, but nowadays my passions lie in other places. You may have noticed that I am particularly interested in theatre, and have been blogging about it a lot recently. If I could afford to see shows more frequently than I already do, I think I would actually transition into a theatre blog, however for now I’m going to stick with the lifestyle sector.

Of course I’ll still be discussing beauty – my Sunday declutters and Friday face mask posts will still be on the blog, as well as product reviews and hauls – the posts just won’t be as frequent as maybe you’ve come to expect from me. I suppose the main reason for this is that my makeup, skincare and body care stash is pretty large for a girl who uses the same products day in, day out. I would currently rather save my money for a house or to go travelling, as well as spending money on trips to the theatre (it’s difficult to resist when I can see two shows and buy a return train ticket for less than £50 on a Saturday).

I hope I manage to keep you interested in reading Essential Twenty, and I’ll see you tomorrow for a brand new post (which after all of this will actually be a beauty post).

  • I’ve been feeling the same about my blog direction recently. I look forward to your new content as I’m definitely more drawn to lifestyle over beauty these days xx

  • I’ve always loved lifestyle content probably more than I have beauty content so I’m excited to see the change! I think it’s always nice to have a bit of a mix, it’s definitely what I’m trying to do with my own blog at the moment x

  • I honestly prefer to read lifestyle blogs over just beauty blogs anyway. I look forward to seeing what you have in store for this blog!
