So, here it goes … I’ve been reluctant to start a written blog as I wasn’t sure what I would actually write about and if the content would even be worth a read. However, I’ve come to realise that you don’t have to succeed as a blogger by having the most followers or the biggest income, it’s about connecting and inspiring other people and that’s what I intend to do.
I’m a working class girl from a working class family and I’ve worked extremely hard for everything that I have and have done so far in my life. I believe that if you come from a different background with more money then you’re open to more opportunities but just because I come from a mining town in Yorkshire it doesn’t mean that I won’t succeed. I want to inspire younger people from my sort of background to go out and work, to study and to achieve the impossible. The only way that I can do this is by succeeding myself and I know that in some way or another that I can.
So here’s a little brief introduction about me… I’m from Doncaster, South Yorkshire and I have lived here the majority of my life. I studied at a local school where I achieved my GCSE’s and A-Levels. I then went on to study Broadcast Journalism at The University of Huddersfield, but I left after a year. I took a year out working then I went to work and study in New York City (best year ever). I decided it was time to finally get my degree so I came home and now I am studying Fashion and Textile Design at High Melton University Centre. I’ve worked a lot, travelled a lot and experienced some amazing things along the way, which I will later go into depth with you all.
My blog will mainly consist of my lifestyle, tips and advice, my travelling adventures and of course fashion! I’ll be blogging at least once a week, hopefully more! I keep my instagram alive daily so check that out @khristiemarielawton.
I’m excited! Let’s do this …
