Sometimes the sheer absurdity of my brain astounds even me, – and I’ve been hanging out with it for over 50 years. As I am used to dealing with the intricate nonsense that sometimes spews from its grey matter, I thought it only fair to warn you; you will either find the following post amusing or you’ll get to the end thinking, “If she ever had a plot, she’s lost it!”
I’ve been working on ways to increase traffic to The Barefaced Chic and during one of my ‘please-come-and-see-me-internet-surfers-cos-you’ll-love-me’ sessions this thought popped into my head; “If only there existed a lonely hearts site for blogs.” This thought kept niggling me all day, and in order to shut up my overactive brain I decided to write a looking for love profile for The Barefaced Chic. Here it is in all its glorious nonsense:
Country of Origin: UK
Age: 3 months (but very mature for my age)
Personality: Friendly. Down to earth. Kind of like if Anthony Hopkins and Dita Von Teese started a blog, and then got their quirk on.
Likes: Other blogs written by mature women. My posts and pages being shared. Lots of comments in my comments section.
Dislikes: The term age appropriate. Slow internet connections.
Looking For: Long-term relationship with friendly people searching for a frequent dose of inspiration. Must love dogs. (just kidding, there are no dogs)
My name is The Barefaced Chic.
While I don’t usually do this sort of thing, I thought that it was time to ‘put myself out there’ and see if – just maybe – the right person might be reading on the other side of the screen.
Where to begin? Well, for starters, I was created in November, and it was pretty darn cold in the depths of Yorkshire. So for my first few weeks I overindulged on Pinterest, stuffing my media library with pretty pictures of hot chocolate and gingerbread. I am hoping that this doesn’t lead to a spare tyre around my coding.
I’m a quirky, imaginative lifestyle blog offering a slightly wacky sanctuary in a sea of sensibility. My mission is to publish a frequent dose of beauty, fashion, lifestyle, health, sound advice and laughs. And, in this sometimes cookie cutter world, I aim to be the chocolate, raspberry crème brûlée!
I’m hoping to help women sweep away their self-doubt and enjoy their life, no matter how many candles are on their cake. Judging by my comments section I know that some women love me, though it always makes me sad when they don’t stay on my pages very long (my back-button is my least favourite physical feature). But I know that there are other things that humans do, like: work, attend social gatherings (in buildings filled with long handles from which weird coloured liquid is expelled – I think they are called pubs?) and spend time with something called ‘family’.
My mum, Michelle, is great. She created me from a tiny ember of an idea almost a year ago. They tell me she’s a pretty cool lady, and that’s where you come in. I want to make my mum proud, so I need other humans to read me, in order to help me grow. You see, while I can be very useful to women (especially the ones you refer to as mature), not many of you have heard of me.
So my mum decided that we needed to ‘reach out’ and ask you humans to share my posts and pages in the hope of getting more readers. Not just any old readers though, we’re looking for very special humans – ones who love to laugh, have problems they want to share, need some inspiration, want to evolve to be the women they were meant to be and would love to build a long term relationship with me. Sorry, my mum taught me early on that one night stands are bad 😉
And guess what? The best part is that you don’t even need to live where I do! My brother, the internet, has made life quite convenient for you. I’m very proud of him.
Well, that’s enough about me. I talk too much sometimes. But usually only when my brother is being a pain and won’t let humans see my pages. We have a love/hate relationship.
Anyway, is this you? You may be my new soul mate.
- Loves to read fashion / lifestyle blogs
- Loves to have a a laugh
- Needs a bit of inspiration
- Enjoys the ramblings from the brain of a slightly deranged mature woman (aka my mum)
- Likes the idea of aging with attitude
- Excited about reading my posts from the comfort of their own homes / offices / trains / planes and automobiles – just not whilst driving or operating machinery 😉
- Would carry on reading my posts even if their significant other begged them to stop and jet off on a surprise trip to Florida. OK, just kidding – if your significant other does this they should be immediately gold-plated.
- Bonus tiara and sash if you oppose the term age appropriate.
If you’re still with me, give it up for my brain!
