Hello my lovelies! So the day has come! Exactly one year ago I published my very first blog post. Saying it was scary would definitely be a massive understatement but I am so happy and proud that I did it! I often get asked why did I start blogging and the answer is simple yet difficult for me to explain. Exactly two years ago I was in a very dark place in my life. I’d made a very important decision that eventually turned out to be not so negative in a long-term perspective but at the time I was feeling so miserable and lonely that I couldn’t even be myself around people. There were certain people in my life that I was terribly missing and I felt trapped inside myself. Physically and mentally. Then my anxiety and panic attacks have started and I still to this day try to battle them in any way I can. The only thing that could cheer me up was watching beauty videos on YouTube and reading blogs.
These two things literally saved me and helped me get through this hard time. I was fascinated by the amazingly supportive beauty community and by the idea of girls discussing makeup and sharing their passion for all things beauty. I myself have always been into beauty and I remember doing my mum’s makeup when I was really little and getting excited every time she buys a new product haha! This has always been my greatest passion and I love it with all my heart! Naturally, the decision to start my own blog and become part of this amazing community followed but the time never seemed right. I was feeling so insecure and apprehensive about it… I was worried that my English is not good enough and that people won’t understand what I am trying to say, I was so scared that my reviews won’t be interesting and informative. The list goes on… However, the minute I sat down and wrote down my first post it felt SO good and I was immediately in love with blogging! I knew that this is something I wanted to do and for the first time in months I was feeling good and positive about myself! :)
I definitely didn’t want to turn this post into a pity party and I guess what I’m trying to say is that blogging is really something I absolutely LOVE doing and it has now became a major part in my life. I love doing reviews and different posts for you all! I love taking photos and putting all my creativity into it! I adore reading all your lovely comments, which inspire me and never fail to put a smile on my face! I love chatting to you on Twitter or via e-mails. I have met (only virtually, sadly) SO many amazing girls from all over the world and I want to thank you all so much for the incredible support you’ve all given me! I am so thankful for all the comments, e- mails, tweets and lovely words you’re telling me! Thank you for following and reading my little blog and thank you for being so sweet and supportive! This has truly been an amazing year and I couldn’t be happier with what I do! It’s so lovely to know that every time I feel sad or anxious I have all of you to cheer me up, as you’ve done so many times; I truly feel blessed! Thank you! <3
Lots of love,
