Welcome to Kirsty writes.

Surprise.. my little space on the internet has a new name! Behind These Closed Eyes has been my pride and joy for the best part of 6 years, but over the last few months I found myself longing for a new identity online.. something that was more me.

Behind These Closed Eyes was always a tricky one to explain as it was inspired by song lyrics (In Loving Memory by Alter Bridge if you were interested) but never really felt like it fitted with beauty, the subject I loved writing about. I knew that I wanted something simple and personal to me, and after far too many brainstorming sessions I knew that Kirsty writes was the name for me. Beauty will always be my favourite topic to write about, but you can be sure that there will be lots more lifestyle, travel and food posts coming your way too.

While I’m on the subject of changing blog identity, I wanted to say a massive thank you to Phil from Pipdig. What I thought was going to be an easy moving process turned into an absolute nightmare as my hosting company made such a mess of setting things up, but after reaching out to Phil for advice, he stepped in and made sure the move happened. Phil’s clean and professional looking blog templates are what got me interested, but it’s his incredible customer service that will have me coming back for years to come.
