Beauty Blogging: My first 8 months! ♥

Hi guys, so today i have a bit of a different kind of post for you, rather than a beauty post it'll about be about my experiences from the last 8 months (when i started this blog)!

Up until i started blogging, i didn't really have any friends. I loved make up and beauty and i just had no girls to talk to about it which obviously meant my poor boyfriend had to listen to me going on about how pigmented a lipstick is. I've made some amazing friends while blogging and i'm actually so glad i've met tham as although i may have only been speaking to them a few months, i feel like i've known them so much longer. Big thanks to Ellis and Sophia, who are two girls i absolutley adore for just being them (and their blogs are top notch too!). 

In the past eight months i've reached 265 Followers (GFC) and i never thought even one person would follow me, let alone that many! I know it's not about the numbers, but the idea that people actually read what i ramble on about really makes my day! 

There are also plenty of things i've learnt or started because of blogging. I've been able to start a full skincare routine, not waste as much money on bad products and learn about great new brands and products too. 

I've had oppurtunities to go to events, something i never thought i'd be able to do, and work with some really great brands too. I've been able to develop a hobby, something i've never had before, and try a lot of new things. 

I even have some tips to any new #bbloggers as well so here they are!
- Don't expect followers overnight, it can take a really long time. 10 loyal followers is much better than 100 followers that don't read your blog!
- Always be honest and be yourself. Let your personality shine through your writing.
- Some people just like being negative, don't let it bring you down. If you're happy with your blog, then that's all that matters.

Sorry for the super soppy post guys!

I just made a brand new facebook page for my blog and it would make my day if you could give it a 'like'!


  1. Congratulations! I'm just around 9 months blogging myself and I never thought it would get anywhere, the blogging community is so nice though :-)

    Random question, are you ears stretched? :-)

  2. Congratulations! I know its not a year anniversary or something but its so nice to read someone talking about their blog and their followers positively just because it makes them happy :)

    Although I'm a little bad at commenting on everything I read, especially when I'm on the ipad... I really love your blog, I admire the frequency of your postings too, I only seem to post something once a week. I travel a lot and struggle to find the time to post as much but fingers crossed I'll get back into it now this cold weathers set in and my need to venture outside is crushed heh.

    1. Thank you so much lovely, that really means a lot :-)
      I love feedback <3 hope it works out for you!
