About Me

Although there is a short and brief introduction on my ‘home’ page on the blog: I thought I would dedicate a page purely to tell you all a bit more about myself. I really want my readers to feel as though they ‘know’ me and give new readers the opportunity to easily find out more about me before reading my blogs etc.

So, I’m Charlene McElhinney. A 20 year old girl living in Glasgow, Scotland. I began blogging as I had been suffering from Depression and Anxiety for almost a year and I needed somewhere where I could express my thoughts and feelings. I have always kept a journal – throughout my whole life – and so I decided to take that journal online and share my experiences with other people. Apart from talking about Mental Health; I also cover a variety of other lifestyle posts such as where I’ve been, how I’ve been feeling that day, what I’ve been up to. Now – my blog is so much more – I still do lifestyle related posts but I also share my poetry, YouTube singing videos and vlogs, I do shopping haul posts, book reviews, product reviews, product posts etc. I genuinely cover a bit of everything on my blog and I have many exciting things coming up!

Starting my blog was the best thing I ever did. I take so much comfort from it. I have met so many wonderful people through it and I am part of the loveliest community ever. I have created my own #beechat community in which I have 1000+ people involved – and my own ‘snail mail’ project – where people write to one another from all over the world (90+ of us so far). People admire me, encourage me and endlessly support me and I just feel like the luckiest girl in the whole wide world.

My blog is continuously growing and fabulous opportunities keep arising for me and I just feel so blessed.

A bit more about me: I have 2 cats – Gizmo and Milo (which I love so dearly). I have a wonderful family, friends and boyfriend who always have my back and support everything I do. I enjoy singing, writing, shopping, playing board games, working out and dancing. I also love acting but I am working (slowly but surely) on getting my confidence back so I can get back in to it.

I do not want to ramble on too much – I just want you all to know why I started blogging, how much I love it and a few facts about me.

If you want to know more then browse through my blog posts or drop me an email at charlenemcelhinney@icloud.com (alternatively leave me a comment & say hello)!

I hope that you will enjoy reading my content and browsing through my photographs and posts. I pour my heart and soul in to everything I do.
