One Year Blog Anniversary!

Hello lovelies!

Yesterday was the anniversary of Pretty Little Flirt. A year ago, I decided to create a page on the internet where I could share my thoughts and opinions for the world to see. I never imagined it building up how it has so far..

Thinking back to the person I was a couple of years ago, shy - not confident AT ALL, never really sticking to anything properly before, to be able to say I have blogged for a year is an achievement for me. I'm not going to say I didn't doubt myself countless times, or say I want to quit or don't want to do it anymore, because I did, a lot. But I always reminded myself that I do enjoy it and so I continue.. I always found taking a little break when I doubted myself really helped me realise I do enjoy it and miss it and then gives my the motivation to get back on it again

There have been so many highlights during my year of writing on the internet, here is just a few of them,
Some of my favourite posts so far have to be 'Pretty Little Thing Wish List', 'The Boyfriend Tag', I really enjoyed reviewing a lot of products such as 'Avon Mascara' 'Body Shop Serum and Moisturiser' 'Shadow Switch' etc

what was your fav?

So yeah, I did have some low moments of self doubt but I've also had some amazing moments. Either way, I am so happy that I pressed that publish button and leaped into something that I really had no knowledge about. I have grown as a person, online and off and I didn't even realise it

I want to say thank you to each and every person who has read any of my posts, it truly means a lot that someone takes time out of their day to read what I post and even comment. I love talking to loads of people on Twitter, you really do get to meet some lovely people and find friends for life x

The Real Neat Blog Award

Hey guys! 

So I was nominated by one of my best friends Tania from TaniaaWrites for the real neat blog award. 

Heres the rules:
  • Thank and link the blogger who nominated you (they deserve recognition, very important!)
  • Answer the 7 questions they asked you
  • Nominate other bloggers and let them know!
  • Ask your nominees 7 questions

Tania's questions to me:

1. What do you love about blogging? Being a part of such a lovely and supportive community. As well as being able to freely express my opinions on the internet, its therapeutic at times actually

2. What's on your bucket list? Definitely want to travel more I have a post on this here

3. What are your goals for 2017? I have a few goals for my blog such as getting a domain and being more socially active (post on this here), in general life I want to get fitter, exercise more, eat healthier build my immune system. I need to work on my temper, not blowing up if I'm annoyed or overthinking things

4. What's the best part of blogging? Definitely being able to talk to lots of different people from different backgrounds, it's such a lovely way to make new pals. I've also loved meeting other bloggers at meet ups and talking in group chats!

5. What motivates you? Planning out what to do in order to reach a goal I have is definitely a way for me to get things done. Also thinking of my future and family, need to keep going and never give up or you'll never achieve what you want

6. How do you like to relax after a busy day? Well I mean I would say a hot relaxing bubble bath with a good ol' lush bath bomb, however, I only have an en-suite shower at university haha! So I'll have to say a hot shower with a face mask and lil pamper session with some snacks and a Netflix binge

7. Any tips or advice for new bloggers? Definitely only write about what you enjoy, don't feel forced to write about topics or things you don't want to. Follow other bloggers who interest you and join twitter chats it's such a lovely community to be involved with!
