One Year Blogging & Tarte Giveaway

Year old


Today marks a whole 12 months since I posted my first post on my blog…wow a whole year!

I didn’t really know how far I would come when I first pressed publish a year ago but I am so glad that I did and that I stuck with it.

I am so proud of myself for keeping this going for a whole year, for the friends that I have made and being part of the blogging community. It has now become a way of life and although sometimes I feel like I could just give it all up, I never would as I love it too much.

So to thank you for all sticking with me and writing those comments I am holding a little giveaway.

    Congrats! I only recently discovered your blog but really loving your top 10s – hope you do more! My current fave pallette is MUR’s new one, I think it’s called something like To The Beyond? Only picked it up cos I really wanted the beach and surf one (also lovely) so thought I’d try the pair. Packaging as flimsy as owt but lovely sparkly browns in it that really impressed.

  • charlotte mudge

    My favourite is my create your own mac palette, love the shade woodwinked at the moment :) x

  • Sandra Blickett

    Mine is the Amazonian clay eyeshadow quad that came in the QVC TSV recently. The shimmery light colour is just the nicest I’ve ever used and combined with the others can create a perfect look for day or night. Consequently I really have had my eye on this tartelette set,

  • Congraulations on a year blogging. My fav is Naked 3.
