Hola and welcome to my blog! My name is Karla and I’m young wife and mama living in the beautiful city of London. This space was created as an outlet to share the experience of a first time mama navigating motherhood whilst still being able to look good and feel great – even after those sleepless nights. Take a seat, grab a drink and lets chat.
About ‘Karla Andrea’ blog
My love for YouTube and blogs began in Summer 2012 when I discovered beauty gurus on YouTube – and I’ve been hooked on them since. I was inspired and in 2012 I decided to start my own YouTube Channel and Blog ‘Karla Loves’ but a while after I gave up because I was too scared and didn’t think about would watch any of my videos or read my blog. I ended up deleting these outlets and just became a viewer but I always knew I had something to share.
In 2014 I decided to give it a go again so I started ‘Karla Andrea Loves’ on Blogger and it became an outlet for me to be creative + record milestones and this eventually turned into one of my biggest passions. I shared big milestones like the time I finished university, got married and our honeymoon. Just like any other blogger I enjoyed sharing my favourite beauty products, some travel tips and the occasional outfit or two. In Autumn 2016 I made a choice to take my blog in a more serious direction, I wanted to create more content and a community but unfortunately things didn’t go to plan. So I decided to take a break and put this on hold. Even though I took a break I still blogged about my pregnancy, just so I could still share something close to my heart. During this period I focused a lot on myself, my pregnancy and I began to feel inspired. I came into contact with a lot of mom bloggers – there are so many! – and I became inspired by them. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs with blogging, I’ve struggled with leaving my comfort zone, comparison and self belief. It was during this time that I was able to learn more about who I am, to love myself and to know my voice. In the blogging world, finding your voice can be really tricky especially when there are established bloggers already, but I wasn’t ready to give up.
In January 2017, my husband and I welcomed our baby girl Isabella Valentina into this world and since then my life has changed for the better. Becoming a mother has been one of the most empowering things ever and I wanted to share this experiencing with you, my readers. After many years of blogging, a minor setback and a lot of encouragement from my husband, family and friends I decided to finally take the plunge in 2017 and create my own official space. I invested in myself, bought my own domain and started working on a blank space. Not knowing anything about coding, I spent my nights watching videos, reading articles and I successfully managed to launch my blog. I also have a YouTube channel where I’ve uploaded some fashion, travel and food videos previously. It currently needs a lot of love but it’ll soon be updated! So watch this space.
Karla Andrea is a place for you to connect with me on a personal level where I am able to create content that is true to who I am and something that you can relate to. Here you’ll find topics that cover lifestyle and beauty for the average city girl, life chats and experiences on motherhood. The aim of this blog has always been to create posts that share positivity and inspire women of all ages. I want this place to be an outlet of positive vibes and self love. I hope I’m able to bring some inspiration and joy each time you visit this space.
I appreciate all your support + love and thank you for joining me on my blogging journey.
Thanks for stopping by and joining me on my journey!
