Hey hey hey!
The name is Sam. I’m an American who has lived Michigan my entire life until July 2017 when I moved to London, UK! My boyfriend lives here in the UK and after dating long-distance for a year, we decided it was time to make the next move – and I was more than thrilled to be the one to do it. As you can tell, the last year has been quite the ride: starting my own blog from scratch, applying for jobs in the UK, getting a Visa, moving to another country, moving into a flat with my boyfriend, and getting settled in London.
As I’ve gotten older my life doesn’t seem to be slowing down much, just speeding up. There’s always something going on and something for me to do: hence the name, Knackered by Chaos. For those who don’t know knackered = exhausted. The thing about me though is that I love the chaos, the craziness. I enjoy living a busy life. That way, when I do take the time for some self-care, I can enjoy it that much more.
This blog initially originated as a way to let out my creativity as my full-time job is in a very technical industry. It quickly became something I looked forward to working on every weekend. I have a lot of ideas and inspirations about what to do with the blog in the future, but my main goal is to be able to make this my full-time job. The amount of passion and pride I have for this website is exactly what I have always wanted in a career.
Generally speaking, this is a lifestyle blog. But everyone’s lifestyle is different. I mainly tend to blog about beauty products like skincare and makeup. As for fashion, it tends to be more about accessories than actual clothing or outfits, although I would love to incorporate a little more of outfit posts in the future. I blog about the entertainment industry which includes, but not limited to, films, TV shows, books, and events. Every once in a while, I will do a food or drink post and include links to recipes I’ve tried that I absolutely love. However, my favourite thing to blog about is travel. Unfortunately, I don’t get to travel as often as I like, but every time I go someplace new, I try to write a post about it.
I hope you have all enjoyed my posts thus far. Please feel free to leave any feedback you have – I would love to hear from you. And lastly, thank you so much for reading my posts and following along on this journey with me.
