About Colours & Carousels

Colours and Carousels - Scottish Lifestyle, Beauty and Fashion blog


Colours and Carousels is a lifestyle blog that I started back in 2010. I started my blog when I was 15 years old – nearly 7 years ago
now. I’d always been an avid internet user and I loved writing, so when I
noticed these blogs popping up I decided to give it a try for myself.  It originally started as a bit of a teenage
diary, or where I’d compile wish lists of the clothes I wished I could afford.
At the time, I wanted to study fashion, so I thought that having a blog would
help me bulk out my personal statement and help me stand out when applying. I didn’t take it very seriously at first and my
updates were pretty sporadic for the first year or so. When I was 16, however,
I ended up getting quite ill and spent the best part of a year in and out of
hospital. It was a pretty difficult time for me, and my blog became a vital
creative outlet which helped when I was confined to my bed for weeks or just
feeling a bit lonely. Ever since then, I’ve been totally hooked.
In my blogging journey so far I’ve covered numerous topics from beauty, fashion, and food to my journey as a student and my various travel adventures. I adore writing about the things I experience, the products I love and the places I discover, and I think my passion shows in my writing.
My blog is a huge part of my life and has been for many years now. I love talking about all things blogging, and you’ll often find me sharing my latest blogging tips and tricks either in a post or through my monthly newsletter. Digital marketing & the online world are huge passions of mine, with my blog being the perfect outlet.
