a general introduction;

hello everybody and welcome to my blog. i don't really know anything about writing a blog but last night, my boyfriend and i were having a nosey on a few people's blogs and decided that it may be something good for me to do. so here i am... i figured that maybe, being new, i'd tell you a few things about myself so you can decide if my blog is the one for you.
about me
my name is laura and i've just turned nineteen. i'm a law student and am about to go into my second year of university. i have a boyfriend who i've been with for two years now and his name is alex. i have lots of fish and two cats; bruce and willow. both are girls. i really want to get a ferret too, but my mum doesn't fancy opening up a zoo right now.
why blog?
blogging is something that has only started to interest me very recently, but even then i didn't really think about starting my own. it really was a spur of the moment thing last night between alex and i. he picked the url of 'ilikecrayonsxo' whilst making fun of me. on a more serious note, and with full intentions of getting a major sympathy vote here, i do have an illness which means i struggle to do the work most jobs require, and no, it's not lazyitus, and when alex is at work and i'm not at uni, i do find myself at a loose end, so hopefully having a blog is going to fix that.
about what?
everything. but mainly lifestyle and beauty. just things that i enjoy and things that work for me. as you may have noticed in my little about me that's hanging around on the side somewhere, i have an ungeneric approach to beauty; my roots really are THAT long! and if i'm honest, i don't often like to wear any more than foundation, but i do like to feel like i've made an effort to look grown up and nice when i'm going out somewhere posh, so those products are likely to feature heavily in my blog. also, i'm hoping to do some 'outfit of the day's' for you when alex is in the mood to play the photographer, which will generally be me in a baggy jumper and leggings.
thank you very much for taking the time to read this, i hope you've enjoyed learning a little about me and that you will continue to read any future posts.
byeeeee xoxo
