8th Blog Birthday + Giveaway

Saturday, May 09, 2020
I type this every year but I can't believe that my little blog is another year older and this year marks 8 years of consistent blogging which is a little overwhelming as it doesn't seem too long ago since the start of my blog back in 2012 when the world was a far nicer place! I started on Blogger, as I still am, but back in 2012, blogging was completely different compared to how it is now but I'm grateful for the change as it has allowed my blog to grow, the opportunities I've received through my blog have been amazing and it has become much more mainstream now so I don't have to explain what blogging is anymore to baffled relatives!
My blog is enabled me to improve my photography and writing abilities (although there's still so much more progress to be made) and to connect with other like minded people as well as being able to review a wide range of products and being invited to blogging events. I never thought that blogging would provide so much and not just in terms of products or events but financially as well. I never thought I'd earn anything from my blog as I solely created it for the purpose of reviewing all of the makeup I loved but I'm incredibly grateful to be able to earn a small income from my blog and to gain freelance writing jobs as a result.
To celebrate my blog's 8th birthday, I'm hosting a little giveaway which I think is something we all need right now when the world isn't at its best! Sadly this giveaway is UK only, especially now as it is difficult to send packages within my own country. Also, shipping of the prizes might be delayed as well, it all depending on the lockdown measures in place then the giveaway finishes at the end of May.

All you have to do to enter is fill in the Rafflecopter form below - the more entries you fill in, the more chance you have of winning. I wanted to include a range of skincare and makeup prizes so there's a variety of Korean sheet masks, lip and eye masks, palettes and beauty tools as well as a few surprise extras.


Good luck!

  18. I'm doing fine as I'm quite a homebody anyway. The only thing that's getting me down is the weather. No rain for over three weeks. My poor plants need a good drink.
