Hello! I’m Shona. I’m 21 and live in Aberdeen, Scotland. I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a blog for about 6 months but I’ve really struggled to come up with a blog name. Finally, I’m happy with a name so I can focus on content! My blog will cover almost everything… I love make-up, food, prosecco, holidays, dancing, tea, reading and my family. I have been on a weight loss journey just short of two years and I’m an undergraduate student. I don’t want to focus on just one thing, I want to give you a real insight into who I am and what I enjoy. I love nothing more than reading lifestyle blogs. One day you get a great make-up review and want to check out a new brand, the next you get an amazing travel recommendation and are overcome with wanderlust!
So, as I said, I’m an undergraduate student. I’m in 3rd year of Applied Social Sciences in Aberdeen and I’m one of the lucky ones who gets to stay at home while studying! No rent or bills to pay and I love it. My main ambition is to become a teacher. On completion of my current degree I hope to study the PGDE and become a qualified teacher and inspire others. You may encounter a few posts about uni stress so I feel it’s important to mention it from the get-go.
I’ve been on a weight loss journey since 2015. To date I have lost over five and a half stone following Slimming World (I may have gained some of this back due to a great 21st birthday, a fair few holidays and a great festive period in 2016!) I have faith I will get back to where I was and 2017 WILL be the year I reach my target! I owe so much to Slimming World and I guarantee there will be posts about the plan, my weight loss and some fabulous recipes!
I look forward to adding more posts and getting to know new people. In a sentence: Welcome to What Shona Says and I hope you enjoy!
