I have just realised in all the time I have been blogging I have completely neglected to update my ‘About’ page! That is a blogger-sin right there so I guess it is time I filled this empty white box with something…
I originally started Red Rose Style in an effort to get myself writing more regularly. I have found that I am happier on the days that I write.
I dabble in creative writing which for now is staying private, and I preach and speak at my Church which is all about crafting words to connect people to ideas and new thoughts. I find both these kinds of writing very fulfilling and interesting but I also had an urge to write about things that, for want of a better word, are frivolous.
I wanted to write about pretty things, and silly things, lovely things; often unimportant but nevertheless enjoyable things; like cake, and make-up, walks in the woods and dresses with skirts that swirl when you twirl!
Blogging seemed like the perfect outlet.
I called my blog Red Rose Style because I am a Lancashire girl and am rather proud of my gem of a county. I love it’s hills, woods and rivers, I like it’s little towns and quirky tea rooms, (I love the sensible Lancashire approach to prices too!). The weather may be a bit nippy but there is a lot of warmth in the people.
Red Rose Style is ultimately a celebration of these small pleasures in life.
I have become very attached to my little corner of the internet over the last couple of years, and I really appreciate those of you who have found me and decided to stick around and press that ‘follow’ button. You are all lovely!
