Yesterday I celebrated 1 whole year of blogging, I can’t believe what an incredible year it has been! When I first decided to start a blog it was purely to share my love and excitement for new beauty purchases but it has become a lot more personal to me now. Blogging makes me feel at ease and gives me a new found confidence that people actually care what I have to say about so many different things! It’s a hobby that I love and I still manage to squeeze in around a crazily busy degree but as I’m graduating in July I cannot wait to make my blog a huge priority.
To celebrate and reflect I have chosen 10 of my favourite and most popular posts over the last year, the posts show a variation of the type of posts I do so if you’re new to my blog this may give you a little bit of an insight into what I love to share with my followers!

In the space of a year my blog has had 6,500 views from all around the world, I’m very with that due to it only being the first year of my blog starting out. Getting used to the format on WordPress and making my blog layout and style to represent me has taken a while so still to get views when I was figuring things out myself is fantastic! On average my blog has had 540+ views a month and with the variation of posts over time that I have done and feedback I have received I’m very grateful for every single one view from readers.
My blog goals for the next year:
- Go self hosted
- Go to a blogger event
- Start using Google Analytics
- Experiment with clothing posts
- Increase my social media following
- Use BlogLovin to connect with bloggers
- Do a sponsored/collaborated post with a brand
- Make blogging a main priority after graduating
To all of my readers, whether it’s been one post or all of them I am so grateful and appreciative of every single one of you. Here’s to making the next year even bigger and better as my blog continues to flourish!
