About

Why, hello there! I’m Isobel - a twenty-four-year-old linguist/blogger/gamer/beauty enthusiast/language graduate/traveller and a million and one other things. I was born in London, but grew up in Hong Kong, went to university in Bath (UK), Madrid, and Voronezh (Russia), am currently located on the outskirts of London, and consider myself lucky to be a third culture kid (a term used to refer to children who were raised in a culture outside of their parents' for a significant part of their development year)

Although one of my biggest focuses on this blog is beauty, I am by no means limited to that. Basically, Isobel Rose is aimed at the girl who is simply trying to find her way in the world, navigating the typical hurdles faced by a twenty-something-year-old in this day and age. So what does that cover, you may ask? I’ve been known to post about living abroad, the best liquid lipsticks, and even living with a mental illness, so whatever I feel is important and/or relevant to the millions of young adults out there who happen to be in the same life stage as me.

Oh, and before you go, I have moved most of my travel content over to my travel blog, so head on over there if that’s the kind of thing you’re interested in (you can even read some of my diary entries about my time spent in the middle of Russia!) If for some reason this little ‘about me’ section has been insufficient to satisfy your curiosity about the girl behind this blog, then be sure to check out the following posts to get your fill of all things I.R. Go on, I know you want to...
