hello! bonjour! ¡hola! ciao! etc etc...

Hello blogging world! Wow...I cannot believe after existing in the most technologically developed century yet, I still hadn't discovered the beauty of wordpress, and blogs in general. I say this with great embarrassement, and will attempt to make up for it with my witty, light-hearted blog posts (HELLO THESAURUS.) I kid. Sort of.

So as this my first post, I feel I should provide some sort of formal introduction. I say formal, but be sure if you met me in person I would either grin and wave manically or probably give you giant hug. Unless you were Zac Efron, in which case I would either a) faint, or b) start rambling about how upset I was when I discovered his real singing voice wasn't used in the first High School Musical (gutted, mate). There is, of course, the obvious c) where I would get on one knee and ask him to marry me, providing him with a hula hoop as a ring (I'm a student, okay?!). It's the twenty first century; it's acceptable.

Now, for the less exciting stuff: My name is Caroline, and I am an English Literature student in London. When writing my personal statement in Year 13, I began manically crying because I was completly torn between studying Art or English..my aunties had to sit me down and hand me a plate full of homemade brownies to stop me from snivelling. It was the biggest choice of my life yet, and I was ripping my hair out wondering whether to go down the "be happy but poor!" or "be okay but have more options" path. As you can see, I chose the latter. However, despite my apprehensions, I've actually enjoyed it more than I thought. I've not only read books which have changed my life, but have developed my knowledge of the world and the wonderful authors that exist within it. I do occasionally sit down and ponder about what I would be doing had I gone to art school...(probably wearing paint-stained dungarees and smoking a lot of weed, I presume).

My interest in fashion sparked from my mother. At the age of 6, I was being thrust into pleated dresses, royal blue leggings with matching hairbands, each individually designed and sewn by her. She was exceptionally talented, and despite having a degree in architecture, it was obvious her passion was in clothing design. She set up her own private company where she would design and make custom clothes to order, and attracted a lot of clientele. I recently found a book of hers in a forgotten drawer with all her hand drawn designs and measurements; it was fascinating. Since then, the dresses and leggings were given away to charity, and I have developed my own personal sense of style. Now, you're probably thinking, why "The Glittered Chameleon"? Well, the reason is simple; I'm obsessed with glitter, and my style changes every single day, along with my mood.

So that's it for now, folks. I hope I didn't bore you too much :) Ciao for now!


  1. Hey! Welcome to the blogging world. Hope you like it! I enjoyed your post. I'm an English major too, but in language/linguistics instead of literature. My little sister is an arts major herself, so it's kind of a mix of both in my family, hehe. Looking forward to reading more of your writing! :-D

  2. Hello! Thanks so much! :) I'm looking forward to it, can't believe I didn't do it earlier!
    Wow, linguistics...actually sounds really interesting. It's rare to find a linguistics course in London, I bet it's a lot less reading than what I do haha.
    I will be sure to check out your blog, and thanks again! C xx
