1 Year Blogiversary, Thank you & Giveaways!

Hi everyone,

On Wednesday, it was actually the one year anniversary of the day I started this blog on April 16th, 2013! Unfortunately, as it was in the middle of Mid Semester Exam Week, it actually completely slipped my mind and so thats why this post is going up today!

I just really want to say a big thank you to you all. When I started this blog, it was just a little creative outlet that I wanted to use to share some of my thoughts and knowledge on beauty products. The blog served as someone to talk to about all these products because my friends in real life aren’t too interested in beauty but I had all this passion and thoughts and opinions that I wanted to share!


Over the past 12 months, this blog has grown into something that I never would have imagined in my wildest dreams. I remember when I hit 500 views on the blog and I was just so excited that people were reading what I had to say! Since then, so many of you lovely people have followed the blog, left comments and interacted via many social media platforms.  I’ve been given the chance to work with a range of brands, companies and PR agencies to bring you product reviews, posts and features and I am so appreciative of having this opportunity so a huge thank you to them as well!

This may sound really odd but blogging really does bring a lot of joy to my life and thanks to you, I’ve had the continual motivation to continue and improve the blog in all the ways that I can. I cant wait to see what the next year will hold for the blog and I am so excited to continue with my journey.

Please continue to support the blog as every like, comment and follow really reaffirms that I’m on the right track and that the content I’m presenting is of interest to you all. It really acts as a big motivation and does mean so much to me! I look forward to providing you with all things beauty related on the blog in the next 12 months!


To celebrate my blogiversary, I currently already have a giveaway running on Instagram and Facebook which are super simple to enter, so click on the links to post your entries and good luck!

I’ll also be running a joint blogiversary giveaway on the blog with another beauty blogger with some amazing prizes so keep an eye out for that as it will be up soon!


As always if you have any requests on what you want to see on the blog, any recommendations or advice and criticisms, please feel free to leave a comment or email me as I always take your comments on board to try to further improve in any way that i can!


Thank you! x
