It’s the start of a brand new week, the sun is shining and today marks a very special day for me, as it’s one year today since I started this blog. I honestly don’t know where the time has gone, it still feels like only yesterday I was writing my first blog post and feeling nervous that no one was going to give it a read.
Over the last twelve months, my passion for all things skincare & beauty has grown and reached new heights. I have been so lucky and grateful to have worked with so many fantastic brands and PR companies, who have believed in me to share my point of view on their fabulous products with all of you. I have also been lucky enough to be featured in an online magazine and as a guest blogger for one of the UK’s leading brands which encompasses, nails, tanning, makeup and fragrance.
I am so thankful for all of your love and support with this blog, everyday you inspire me to share my reviews, as my mission when starting this blog, was that if I could help one person feel better in their own skin and find them that one Desert Island product which they had yet to discover, then this would of been a success. I am so grateful that many of you have contacted me and given your well wishes, thanks and support. I couldn’t do any of this without you so I want to thank you all, no matter how long or how recent you have discovered this blog.
I never thought that within my first year I would have had over 73,000 visitors to this blog, or over 5,700 likes on my Facebook page or more than 5,400 followers on Twitter. I didn’t set a specific target for any of these but I had a rough idea from looking at other bloggers and what they had achieved over a year and i’m pleased to say that with your support I have way more than doubled those initial figures that I thought possibly weren’t achievable.
As a massive thankyou to you all, I will be running a competition everyday this week across all of my social media platforms to give everyone the opportunity to enter. I have also created a Facebook event which if you could click on show that you are attending and celebrating with me that would be fantastic.
You will also recieve an extra entry by reading this blog post and leaving a comment about this post, which can be anything you like. I would love to know what your Desert Island product is as a suggestion for your comments.
