I'm Carrie.
Recently, I feel like I've got a bit lost on here. It hasn't really been feeling so much like me any more, and I'm a bit worried my voice isn't coming through. I started this blog way way back in January 2013 partially out of boredom, partly as an online diary to keep things in place, but also as a way of staying on top of things, in terms of my happiness and positivity. I primarily wanted an online happy place, and I am proud to say I think I successfully created it. That's the reason you won't find much negativity round here, I'm a firm believer of 'if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say it at all', so that's a little explanation as to why you will only find me writing about things I like. I know there's a lot of debate on that in the blogosphere at the moment, some people think negative reviews are necessary and important, and that there are too many people trying to make their life look perfect.
Well, in my honest opinion, life most definitely isn't perfect, and we all know that, so what's the harm in trying to forget about the bad things and focusing on the good? That's my mentality anyway, and that's how I try to run this blog.

Recently though I've felt that I've been getting a bit lost under talking about things much more than things that happen, and I feel like I fancy a change. I am, and will be forever grateful for the opportunities that this blog has presented, the wonderful products I've been able to try out and tell you about and the experiences I've had, but I don't want this to turn into a product review only website. Don't get me wrong, I love writing about things I love, and want to still feature them, but I want to make sure that my personal voice shines through more prominently, because after all, that's why I write, and why I'm here in the first place.

I'm instituting a little change of schedule, to make sure I get to do a bit of everything that I like doing so much. There will be beauty days, food days, fashion days and, my favourite feature, more days for thinking and talking. This way, I feel like I'll be able to fit more of all the good stuff in, and include more of myself. So really, this marks the start of a transition to the 'lifestyle' side of the scale more than the beauty. I hope you don't mind, but I feel like I need a little bit of a change to remain as in love with this site as I once was.

We'll see how things go over the next few weeks, change is always a little scary, but I hope you'll bear with me as I find my feet. I would of course love and welcome your feedback about what's going on, and anything you'd like to see in future, so please get in touch. Of course, if you just want a chat, then that would be lovely too. Drop me a message below, grab me on twitter at @carrie_brighton, or yell at carriebakescakes@gmail.com

Much love,
