Welcome to Fleur de Lailis! 

A UK lifestyle and beauty blog
Who am I?

Hi lovelies! I’m Laila, I’m 22 years old and I live in London. I’m currently a part-time sales assistant at a childrenswear store, but I'm aspiring to become a film director one day! I'm a Translation graduate and can speak Spanish, French and a bit of German. I have two cats called Arya and Jon Snow, and Jon Snow is Arya's only kitten and she absolutely hates him; unlike the characters in Game of Thrones. I absolutely love animals and I'd probably live very happily in a farm. 

This is a picture of Arya and Jon Snow when they lived in harmony with each other

Why did I start blogging?

I started this blog back in 2012 when I was still in school and wanted to talk about my life, but didn’t do much of the writing. I then had a massive hiatus and didn’t return until 2014 when I wanted to document about my year abroad in Paris. I wanted a place to talk about my travels and decided to start my blog again. But again, the hiatus shadowed over my life a short while after, and didn’t blog until this year again. Yet, this time, I am for sure staying.

I’m graduating from Uni this July and my degree hasn’t left me with the wide range of job possibilities I thought I would have, so I’ve decided to try out different things and come back to my love of writing and experiment with setting up a ‘proper’ blog. I am still very new at this, but I'll hopefully get there eventually.

My dream is to get into the Media Industry and even though I studied Translation at Uni, I still have hope of getting there and holding my director’s clapboard one day and yelling “Action!”. I’ll be starting a Graphic Design course soon and going to Journalism school in the summer, because I love trying new things and acquiring new skills. So, I may share some of those stories on here too. 

I'm also starting a makeup course in September because I really want to get into makeup and learn how to do it myself rather than ask my friends to do it for me.

Fleur de Lailis will therefore be a lifestyle and beauty blog.

Why Fleur de lailis?

Well, since French is my favourite language and my name is Laila, I decided to combine these two things in my blog name. Fleur de Lis forms the former royal arms of France and my mum actually calls me Lailis, so I thought it was the perfect fit.

What do I like to do?

I love to write and I'd love to publish my own novel one day too. (So many dreams, I know) I also love to read and may have a slight addiction to Harry Potter and Game of Thrones (hence my cats' names). I also like to cook and you'll find some recipes on my here too. I like to quote movies and you might find the odd Mean Girls quote thrown in one of my posts, as it's my favourite movie. So fetch!

Interesting fact?

I once got bitten by a squirrel! My previous cat, Albus, had caught a squirrel and because I love animals, I decided to rescue it. But then he bit me and I ended up in A&E that entire day crying my eyes out because my finger felt like it was going to fall off.
