This blog turns 1 this month. ONE. I have had this here bloggeroo for 1 whole year. A WHOLE YEAR! Sorry, it’s not often I stick at doing something (I have various abandoned musical instruments and a few failed cross stitches) so this is such an achievement for me. JOIN ME IN MY GLEE WHY DON’T YOU!
During this past year, I have achieved so much – I actually can’t believe how much stuff has happened. It’s all thanks to you for reading this, for following my various social media ramblings, for interacting with me and supporting me. I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me. Without you, I wouldn’t have achieved half of what I have done – from awards nominations, photo shoots and Marie Claire articles to my first ever brand collab, my first outfit post and my first dip into the body positivity world.
It doesn’t end here, I have so much more I’m working on that I cannot WAIT to show you. Just wait until you see what I’ve got for you next…I promise you, you’re going to want to stick around!
In my first ever blog post (which you can read here) I asked you to join me whilst I started my body positivity journey. I promised you that I would stop wearing black. I promised you that I would be relevant and bring you interesting and engaging content. When I look back at that first blog post, I feel so very proud. I feel like I achieved all of that and more – so here’s a few of my favourite moments from the past year:
- My first body positivity post
- My first (terrible) outfit post
- Attending my very first plus size fashion event
- Being nominated for Best New Blog at the British Plus Size Awards
- My first collaboration with a brand
