First, there was a cooking blog. I called it Vegicuriosity. I realized what a tremendous amount of work it is, and was largely uninspired anyway, so it went by the wayside after five posts. Almost a full two years later, I discovered the world of beauty blogging, and became inspired to start my own blog up again, with a slightly different purpose. I called it Liesl Loves, bought my domain name, and set out to write about whatever struck my fancy. It was still mostly food, sprinkled with a few beauty product posts (mostly nail polish.) It didn't feel congruent, but I wasn't sure I wanted to deal with the rigors of starting a whole new blog, especially since that particular blog was still so new.
Food is my passion, though, and with an all-encompassing theme, I couldn't customize Liesl Loves the way I really wanted to. It was all a bit generic, and felt like a mish-mash. It wasn't a beauty blog, but it didn't feel like it was a foodie blog, either, and that kind of bothered me. So here I am. Liesl Loves is undergoing a makeover, and it's finally starting to feel right, and reflect my excitement about cooking and eating tasty food. And now I can feel more free to go on about my nail polish, or the great new lipstick I just bought, or a perfume I'm rediscovering.
After some deliberating (and cutting & pasting) I've decided to leave all the original posts up at Liesl Loves. It's a great opportunity for some redux, especially since I have prettier cuticles and a macro lens now. ;)
Thanks for growing with me.
