Fatima Writes Turns 4 And A Round Up Of 2019

I can't believe this month marks a whole 4 years of blogging on Fatima Writes!

It's been a crazy journey so far! I've had the most amazing opportunities like working with Jack Wills, Panasonic, Hammersons and so much more. The whole blogging experience so far has been great for opportunities like these but also for my confidence, writing skills, photography and even friendships. It's also a great space to call my own - I love spending time tapping away at my laptop, thinking of new blog post ideas, taking pictures and putting together posts.

To anyone who is thinking about starting a blog, I highly recommend it. Even if it is just for yourself. My blog started as a hobby and it is now such a huge part of my life, I can't see myself without it!

As well as blogging bringing me great opportunities this year and the past few years, 2019 has been full of a lot of blessings and great things. From celebrating our first wedding anniversary, turning 23 and getting a kitten, this year has been filled with so much love, joy and happiness. This time of the year always makes me feel nostalgic and is also a time where I think about what I'm thankful for. I feel incredibly lucky to be around a loving and supportive circle of family and friends. I'm especially grateful for my husband - he's been through every up and down with me and continues to love me no matter what.

I've been lucky enough to find my dream job this year too! I've been through 3 different positions (I know, it's a lot) and have finally settled into a position where I am happy and doing what I love. I feel really luck to be there and super excited to see where my career takes me.

Skincare and beauty has been a huge part of my life this year! I've been battling with eczema for a few years now and I've finally learnt to accept it. Embracing my 'bad skin' has made me a much more confident person and it's made me who I am today. I've been learning a lot about me and my skin this year and it's been a wonderful journey. It's made me realise how passionate I am about skincare and how I can help others through my findings and learnings through my blog.

This year has also bought me the chance to set up my own small home business. Fatima Makes is a modern calligraphy and wedding post box business servicing Leicester. I'm just getting started but I'm hoping to work on more products and services for 2020 so please do get in touch if you are interested in post boxes, prints or even workshops.

So we've talked about the past and the present, but what about the future? I'm hoping to put more into my blog, as per usual, as well as my career, side business and anything else life throws at me. I've got a few plans for 2020 but only a couple of them are set in stone so far. You can keep up to date with me and what I'm up to over on Instagram (@fatimawrites_) and my blog.


Wishing you a happy and prosperous new year!
