It all started 3 years ago...And a surprise Giveaway

August. The month that for some obscure reason I decided to put my thoughts "out there" and embarked on a journey that introduced me to a whole new world and made me a load of new friends.

I can scarcely believe that I have been blogging for 3 years. 156 weeks. In those weeks I have managed to publish 466 posts, attend a few launches, Actually In Real Life meet some of my Idols and hit a few personal milestones along the way.

From my favourite music, to confessions and my favourite products, tutorials and manicures. Its been a place I found confidence and within the ranks of (ever growing) bloggers I have found kindred spirits/Bloggers all over this gorgeous Country. And I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has taken the time to not just read my musings (however crap they may be), but to comment. I made sure to turn captcha off. Although I still have nightmares about that....

Even though its the blog's birthday, you get the presents this month. I will run a few give-aways across the mediums of the Blog, BloglovinTwitter and Instagram so be sure to follow and keep an eye out.
