OMG! Is my blog really 5 years old now? Well, i got a notification off WordPress to say it is.Have things changed
Not that much. I still love Chanel, although i think its not quite got the hold on me as much as maybe 6-8 years ago or; i have so much makeup now that i could create any look i ever wanted without really buying anything new.
Do i still enjoy writing?
If i’m really honest, i don’t have a lot of time and i have a ton of products i still haven’t written about yet so, maybe its waning a tad. I do try to keep up and now i’m back from my hols, i’ll have another go at it.
Thing is, i never thought my blog would still be going after all this time so i’m really pleased it still is.
Have i learned anything this year?
Have I ?!! I think the ‘paid’ bloggers are becoming more transparent. Especially when they keep posting about the same products as each other at the same time. Hmmm !!
I am a bit miffed that there are very few bloggers in my age group. 40-50. The stats prove that this is the age group that spends the most on beauty products.
I love Ann-Marie’s blog, check it out. Ann-Marie writes some great posts which i can relate to.
I have little interest in high street beauty at all or anyone talking about anti-ageing products when they are many years away from needing them.
I only buy what i want to and i tend to watch vids from the little youtubers and read blogs from little bloggers like myself more and more because i believe in them. Not fairy lights in the background and fancy camera work from a whole production team.
What does the future hold?
More of the same. It is what it is. I don’t get paid to write posts and i don’t get sent any freebies. Yes, it would be nice; however, i would only write what i wanted to write. I need to keep my integrity so that you get thorough and honest reviews from me.
That is very important to me and in the five years, i have never been dishonest about any product i have reviewed so i’m chuffed with that and why should that change ?!
With that all said, thanks once again for popping by, following me and commenting and i do really appreciate it. It shows that i’m not writing to an empty space and people do appreciate me and thats what keeps me writing.
P.S Some pics from my amazing holiday touring the west coast of USA. Planning my next adventure!
Thanks guys and here’s to the next five years hopefully. 😉
