Beneath The Blog

Hello, it’s Lau.

For the most part of this year, I’ve been silent..very silent. I didn’t ever intend for this to happen.

Last year, I was posting weekly and devoting all my time and passion into creating a blog I was proud of..And I did that. I can look through all of my posts in 2018, and I can see much passion. I was determined to make Honestlylau something I’d do for a lifetime, but as 2018 was ending, I got side tracked with just life.

I felt like I had no time for blogging, but in actual fact.. I had all the time in the world. I lost the motivation to create content, I have endlessly created and deleted posts because every idea I came up with, just wasn’t good enough.

So, through 2019. I stopped. Without another thought, I left this behind and started being an adult. My whole life changed around and blogging was just not what I wanted to do anymore.

Till one day, I deleted the app. But I never wanted to delete my blog, that was my game over. Deleting it would of been hours of dedication thrown away just because I lost motivation. And who knows if I would of gained it back later on. Months down the line, I could of rekindled this motivation and have this blog going again.

And that’s what I’ve done today. Rekindled my motivation.

This time last year, I lost my motivation. But now, I have it back and I hope you will join me.

Thank you.



Introduction – Hello!

Hello everyone, welcome to the beginning of this rather random blog. Why random? Well, I won’t be sticking to one theme, for example, I want to do fashion, makeup, hair..and I will dabble in the outside of beauty things.

As time goes by, you’ll get to know me more and maybe you’ll trust my opinion on products and what I think. For this post, I just want to tell you a little bit about myself.

So, here are:

5 random facts about me

1. I am 17 years old, 18 in a few months.

2. When I was younger, I was very obsessed with reading and writing my own stories. I guess you could say it inspired this blog.

3. I’m in college learning media makeup. For a long time, that’s all I wanted to do but now I’m not so sure.

4. I live in Britain, particularly in the south.

5. I am very artistic. I love to dance, draw and just create.

I hope you enjoyed my very first post, as I said in the beginning this blog doesn’t have a theme so if there’s anything you’d like in particular for me to write about, whether that is a new product or completely random and you just want my opinion then you can contact me via twitter, email or just in the comments.
