Lifestyle | Beauty | Travel
I am Sarah and thank you for dropping by. I am currently a private English teacher as well as a certified yoga teacher in Singapore. I got certified in Bali and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life so far.
On this website, you can expect to find beauty reviews, makeup tutorials, journaling prompts, lifestyle bits, book notes, food recipes, and travel pieces.
I love to bake, drink coffee, read non-fiction books, box a little, do some yoga (of course!) and travel the world.
So how did Beautybyrah come about?
In 2014, after my exchange in the Netherlands, I started Beautybyrah as a beauty blog that heavily featured makeup and skincare as that was my passion then. However, as time passed, my interests slowly changed as I tried different things out. Beautybyrah has then slowly evolved to platform where I share my thoughts and experiences on beauty, travel, and lifestyle in general. I feel like I’ve definitely evolved as a person, with changing passions and interests, and I would like the content featured here to reflect that as well.
This is because besides makeup, I discovered that there were other aspects of life that also excited me and I want to share it with you too. For a long time, I tried my best to focus strictly on makeup on this blog, as I knew that that was what you came here for. However, I started to hit creative blocks and I struggled to put out content that thrilled me and that I was proud of. However, I remembered that I started this blog in the first place as a way to connect with people and to share my thoughts.
What’s happening now?
Thus, I decided (even though it took me some time) to change the focus of Beautybyrah, to focus on not just beauty products, but also on the beauty of life. I would love to write more about my travels, my thoughts, my lessons learnt, yoga and just talk about life in general, as a way of sharing my journey with you.
This website is still dedicated to reviewing both drugstore and high-end beauty products as well as providing makeup inspiration and ideas through pictorials and swatches. To help jostle you out of a makeup rut, take a look through the collection of swatches, my step by step pictorials or my makeup tips and tricks to give you some inspiration. For references to reviews, I have an oily skin type with uneven skin texture and acne scars.
Lastly, I also believe that a community is a very important aspect of blogging. If you have any recommendations or suggestions, feel free to hit me up on my socials or email!
Sending you love and positive vibes,
