Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. -George Bernard Shaw

Hey everyone, I'm Zoe, I've created Beauty.Life.Balance as a way of recording and sharing some of the things going on in my life. Here is a little info on me:

I am a 24 year old high school English teacher living in Canberra. I love my job and although it challenges me on almost a daily basis, I find it so rewarding and couldn't imagine doing anything else.

As the title of my blog suggests, I am very interested in all things beauty related, I am excited to be able to share some of my extensive purchases (which, now that I am officially a blogger, I plan to call "research"...) with you and can't wait to recommend some of my favourite things!

I also love to travel and am hoping that this will be a place I can share and hear about travel stories. My next trip is planned for late December, I am heading to New Zealand to see in the New Year, watch this space for news and pictures!

I chose this quote by George Bernard Shaw as the title for my first blog as it really resonated with me at this point in my life. I think December is always such an exciting time of year, not only becuase of all of the festivities, but because the New Year is in sight, which for me has always been a time of reflection and a time to make plans, I personally can not wait for 2013 and am looking forward to sharing it with you!

Happy reading,

Zoe xx

  2. Hey Zoe, I'm a friend of Megan, also a blogger based out of Canberra. I'm not so much a beauty blogger, but there are times when beauty finds its way onto my blog. I hope Megan brings you along to one of our get togethers :)

    I returned from NZ just a while ago. My husband is an academic and teaches there a couple of months every year. We had an amazing time in Queenstown. Can't wait to see what you end up doing!

    Much love, Vanisha xoxox

  3. Queenstown is our first stop! I am so excited, I have heard it is just beautiful, I will be sure to take lots of photos to share! Do you have any Queenstown must-sees?

    I would love to meet up at a get together xx
