Farewell and Welcome

A bit of bad news and a bit of good news.

I have decided to close ‘The BeautyFul World’ blog and open a new one. Why would I do this, you might wonder. Let me explain.

I like blogging. I like writing about beauty products, food or fun things I have done.
I feel however like the whole blogging experience was just ‘not me’. I see so many lovely blogs out there. Beautiful clean pictures, great writing, great outfits, all done by absolutely gorgeous girls. And I can’t help but compare myself to them all. I am really hard on myself, like always. I never think I’m good enough, I always think there are people so much better than me and whatever I do I just won’t be as good as any of them. This applies to everything – makeup, outfits, studying, career, you name it.

Now apply this to blogging. I have always tried to be like those girls. Post crisp, clean, gorgeous pictures of trendy outfits or great makeup looks, or shopping hauls. I always failed, my pictures just won’t ever be that good, I can’t dress that well and simply don’t have time to apply makeup for 40 minutes so that it’s perfect for blog pictures. I know I am failing because I don’t have many views, no comments and subscribers keep disappearing.

In the light on me trying to be me, I decided not to give up on blogging, I really enjoy it and I simply don’t want to stop. Instead I am going to try and make it MY blog. Post the way I am: geeky, definitely not perfect, not that pretty and not thin or fit. I don’t shop much, I like natural products, I re-use stuff because I care for the environment, I like making stuff. I want to share the things I love and don’t love with the world and I hope the world wants to see it.

So that’s that! I think the new blog will definitely be a lifestyle blog, just a bit of everything, lots or random stuff. Any ideas on what I should call it? It’s going to be hard to gain audience in this day and age where there is so many great blogs out there. But I hope to see you there. Stay tuned for the new link.

Double Tomato and Basil Spaghetti – Donna Hay Recipe

I have mentioned before that I am a huge fan of Donna Hay’s ‘Fresh and Light’ cook book. I use recipes from this book on a regular basis. I want to show you how easy, fast and delicious to make dinner with this book.
The book has breakfast, deserts, sides any many more recipes and I highly recommend it. I will definitely purchase more of Donna’s cook books.
Here’s the recipe:
Combine 1/3 cup finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes, 250g quartered mixed cherry tomatoes (I used red as that’s all I had in the fridge), 1 cup basil leaves, 1 table spoon each white balsamic vinegar and olive oil, sea salt, cracked black pepper and finely grated parmesan. Toss through 200g hot spaghetti to serve.
