3rd Blog Birthday + A Thank You Giveaway!

On 8th February 2015, I published my first ever blog post. I’m surprised I’m still here typing away, actually. I thought I’d of given up a long time ago and whilst I’ve had a few long breaks throughout due to life stresses or writer’s block, I’ve always come back and realised how much I enjoy doing this. But best of all, whenever I go on these breaks, you all still stick around. I never lose one follower and I know it’s not all about the numbers, but I appreciate it so much. It’s so nice to know people actually want to read what I write, so thank you!

This past year, I’ve had some fab opportunities come my way. I’ve worked with some fabulous brands, my favourite being NYX & Debenhams for this post. It was my first major ‘blogger mail’ and I was so over the moon when the email landed in my inbox. I don’t do this for the freebies and I have no intention of making this my career (although if the opportunity arose, I would definitely consider it! But that’s way off yet.) but receiving that parcel made me realise how far I’ve come. I even got invited to my first blogger event in Feb of last year. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go due to work but it looked amazing.

Blogging nowadays is such a huge thing. I can’t believe how much it’s helped me. My confidence has grown, it’s enabled me to improve on so many skills and it’s become an important addition on my CV (if you haven’t added your blog to yours yet, I definitely recommend it!). Whenever I go for interviews, I always get comments on how great my blog is and that just makes me so happy, especially as they’ve taken the time to have a little read before interviewing me!

This year, I hope to get to attend some blogger events and I’d love to make some blogger friends too. (If you live in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk etc. say hello in the comments? 🙈)

OK, I’m rambling on a bit now. Let’s get to the fun part.. to say thank you, I’m holding a little giveaway for one of you to win all of this:

  • Glossier Cloud Paint Duo in Beam (my fave!) & Dusk.
