So, who am I?
I’m Sophie, a novice blogger stumbling through her late 20’s as a single girl who is lucky enough to call London my adoptive home.
Why am I writing this?
I’ve loved writing since I was a little child and having given up my dream job as a copywriter in PR a couple of years ago, I suddenly realised how much I miss the written word. I’m an old fashioned girl at heart but in order to try and write a little more, I thought I’d step into the 21st century and give this blog malarkey a go. I had a browse online at what seems to be popular (this video explains my old fashioned ways a little more perhaps), and I’ve decided to shun all that “cool stuff” and just be me.
I intend to use this space to jot down slices of my life – things I’ve done, things I haven’t done, things I should have done, my meandering thoughts and my adventures – it’s just a little outlet for me really. I’ve not told my nearest and dearest about this blog as some of the things I plan to write about (in time) may be a little close to the bone for them, but if anyone else chooses to take a look at my ramblings, well that’s just great!
Why “Bare Faced Messy Hair” as a title?
Simple, because that’s me!
I grew up in a sleepy Norfolk town not far from the coast, with the sun on my bare face and the country air causing all sorts of havoc with my curly hair before moving to London at the tender age of 18. Having allowed myself to get totally caught up by the bright lights of this amazing city, I now consider myself a native.
I, like everyone else have had the odd bump along the road, but on the whole I have a beautiful life, a very fortunate one – not in worth so much, but in love and respect. I have been lucky enough to grow up with the unconditional love of both my amazing parents and I am so grateful for them. I also have a great bunch of close friends who I consider family and for their fun and constant laughter I will forever be thankful.
