My little blog is one year old today!
Thank you so much for every comment, tweet and email. I don't reply to comments as often as I'd like (mainly because I don't think you get notified when I do) but know that I appreciate every single one and my Twitter and email accounts are always open.
I wanted to tell you a little story about how I got into beauty blogging. It's not something I talk about very often but, during recovery from an eating disorder, makeup became something safe and normal. Makeup doesn't come with sizes and it allowed me to shop with friends without the anxiety of clothes sizes and mirrors. I don't, and never have, used makeup as a mask but I appreciate the way it can improve your mood, allow you to experiment and generally be a little creative. If you hate it, you can wash it off.
Without it I think my way back to normality would have been a lot harder. It gave me something to focus on and both that and your support has been more valuable to me than I can ever express. I was hoping to have a little giveaway today but I couldn't settle on a prize I thought everyone would like, so I'll keep thinking and look out for it sometime in the next week or so.
Thanks again, and here's to another year! xx
p.s. Thanks to my mum for making those gorgeous biscuits! This is starting to sound like a bad Oscars speech so I'm going now...BYE!
