blog birthday: 1st birthday plus a giveaway

hello! i’m saying a big happy birthday to my blog today, as i’ve officially been taking it seriously and blogging consistently for a year! i actually don’t know what i’d do with my spare time if i didn’t have my little corner of the internet, so i’m very grateful that you’ve all supported my little hobby over the past year. i’m not going to get too soppy, but i do quite love the blogging community and you’re all such a helpful, kind and motivating bunch and i do appreciate you all. i got a lotta blog love you guys.

i would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you who helped me with my magazine. it was amazing how many of you volunteered your time to give me a quote or send me a picture. so a huge shout out to terri from helloterrilowe, livvy from teatoastfashion, islay from islaay, danny from adventuresafterhours, becky from milkbubbletea, lizzie from dustontheground, sophie from sophielovesfood, shopdixi and my lovely coverstar tilly from tilly-jayne.

so, to say thank you for following for reading i thought i’d do a giveaway. i’ve know what i wanted to give away (from my own pocket, as always) for a while now, so i’ve been patiently waiting for the 15th of may to come around. without further delay…

the prize for my giveaway will be either:

1 x £50 voucher for topshop,
1 x £50 voucher for asos or
1 x £50 voucher for space nk

or, you can combine two places and have a £25 voucher for each, as i know some of you like your fashion and beauty.

i will also put together a little goodie bag for the person who wins, but i’m keeping what’s inside a secret (unless i get too excited and put some sneak pics up on instagram…)
