Introduction time! It is May and most of my university stress is over. I can finally start my blog! When I say start I mean start again. I used to be at afromermaid.net but I was a shoddy blogger and I like to think of that as an experiment. Finishing university, I am going to have a lot of time on my hands so this is the perfect time to re-launch. New URL, new theme, new look and new motivation. I am excited. I’ve blogged on different platforms in the past and loved it, so I decided to create my own little space on the internet for just me. I’m even self-hosted now! (WordPress and Bluehost are stress, let’s not even) Welcome to Afro Mermaid.
Let me tell you a bit about myself in case you are new or in case you know me and would like to be reminded. I’m Whitney Abigail and I am about to finish university! Thank the laaaaawd. I studied Philosophy and Sociology, loved it, also happy it’s over. I love horror films and have an obsession with the ocean and mermaids. I’m very happy this mermaid trend is on the rise – mermaid-themed homeware is now acceptable haha. I have no party tricks except I love to talk a lot about nothing so you have that to look forward to if you decide to keep up with my blog.
So what am I going to be writing about? If you know my makeup collection is excessive (I’m not even a makeup artist) and I adore creative beauty looks. So yeah I will be writing BEAUTY posts; my new finds and favourites, makeup for WOC, beauty trends and hopefully some makeup looks of my own. There’s more! I will also be posting LIFESTYLE posts; so anything from what I’m up to, my thoughts on things in general, pop culture and all things LIFE and STYLE (see what I did there). LASTLY, probably what I’m most excited about, I will be writing WELLNESS posts; covering everything to do with self-love, self-care, confidence, positivity and all things good for the mind and soul.
Introduction post done! I think that’s it for now. I’m not good at writing bios. But I’m excited to try and be a consistent blogger (again) and share some of my thoughts. Stay tuned for my up-coming blog posts and things I have in store for myself; I will be posting a new blog post EVERY SATURDAY. Thanks for reading this far if you have and WELCOME TO MY BLOG, AFRO MERMAID say hello.
