Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog. My name is Emily Van Cauter and I am currently 24 years old. If you’d like to learn a little more about me, make sure to keep reading. I’ve also answered a few questions people often ask me, you can find them in my FAQ page.
I grew up in a very creative family in Belgium, which is a small country in Europe next to France and The Netherlands. From a young age onwards, drawing, photography, and art were a part of my life. Photography was my first true passion, following in the footsteps of my father who was a photographer. Portraits were my favourite to capture, especially fashion and beauty shots were a big inspiration to me. This spiked my interest in make-up and cosmetics.
As a young teen I found myself watching YouTube videos to learn how to create make-up looks. One day I stumbled on a nail art tutorial and discovered that the world of nail art doesn’t end with a French manicure. It really opened up my eyes and I was instantly hooked! I started this blog, Very Emily, in January 2010 and I have been blogging ever since.
That tells you how I got into blogging but I have other interests and hobbies too. Possibly too many to list! I’m a keen crafter and I enjoy knitting, crocheting, cooking delicious meals, caring for my many plants, watching TV series, going for walks and enjoying nature.
On December 3rd 2014 I lost my father to cancer after a two year battle. During this difficult time I found that blogging was a great escape for me. I’m really grateful to the people I have met through the blogging and the nail art community, they’ve shown me and my family so much support. I can’t thank them enough!
My fiancé Dries and I, going strong since 01/02/2009. I owe special thanks to him for always helping me out with my blog and for putting up with my craziness!
