About me

Ever wonder how I look like? If so, here it is

You have no idea of how nervous I am writing this, but 2015 being the year of building self-confidence, overcome my insecurities and get out of my comfort zone, let's do it.
Took these photos weeks ago with this post idea on my mind but the fear didn't let me publish them earlier. Is 2 am and today is the day, just decided it minutes ago

So who is the girl that sends lots of hugs in every single post? Who is the person behind Volatile Love?

When I started the blog I wanted to it anonymously. Only writing my name was a big step so sharing a photo had to take more time

That's me trying to take a selfie. Definitely awkward 
- Also no idea why the wall is so dark in the 1st photo - 

Never shared a photo before because I'm a behind the camera person, so photos of myself rarely happens but the main reason was that I wanted people to like or not the blog just through the posts. And I also feared - and I'm still a little bit - that some people could find the blog and get to know I am the one writing it.

That's also why I never shared my social medias. But now that I'm trying to overcome my fears I decided to share them. I decided to create brand new accounts, new accounts because the old ones weren't in English, but also because I wasn't posting anything for months and just couldn't see myself getting back to those old accounts.
Twitter, instagram and tumblr. New spaces for a start fresh!!

So you can get to know me a bit more, there's a list of 5 random things about me:
- I love butterflies
- I wear glasses 
- I was born in Cape Verde on January 16th 1996
- I live in Portugal since I was 5
- I was meant to be named Vanessa

Now it's your turn, let me know 5 random things about yourself
Also, feel free to share your social medias accounts in the comments section. Just so you know, I'm crazy about instagram and tumblr accounts so I would love to check yours

Lots of hugs, A
