The Little Beauty Blogg's 1st birthday! *GIVEAWAY* - CLOSED!

Hello everyone! Wow this week has been super busy for me. I was away job training in another area of London from Monday to Wednesday and this weekend I have been working none stop. I have never talked about my job on here before but in case you're wondering I work for my University. There are a lot of people due to start their course again soon so this weekend has been insanely busy! However, it has been really fun!

I don't want this post to get super duper soppy and all reflective in an emotional way but I seriously cannot believe that it was a year ago today that I wrote my first proper blog post on the Little Beauty Blogg! I did actually write a post on here on the 14th of September 2012 but that was just saying I had changed my blog location. I thought it was only right that I classed today as being my actual blog birthday because it was a year ago today that I wrote my first ever proper post! If you'd like to read it (and most probably cringe) you can do so here.

When I started blogging, a year ago today, I never imagined that I would have readers and a blog that I am this proud of. Everybody who reads and follows this blog is super amazing! There isn't a day that goes by where I don't feel proud of the Little Beauty Blogg! Being able to express myself on the internet and write about what I love is such a wonderful thing to be able to do and it really wouldn't be possible without all of you amazing people who follow me. I know that blogging isn't just about the amount of followers someone has but knowing that people read and comment on your blog is such a lovely feeling! I always try and write posts that I think you guys will enjoy and I absolutely love interacting with you all!

I actually started blogging last summer when I was home from university and bored. I had been watching YouTube videos for quite some time and although I didn't read many blogs (I only read the blogs that my favourite YouTube'rs had) I wanted to start my own! I started blogging with the belief that no one would ever read my blog and it would be something I'd look back on in many years to come. However, people started reading and I couldn't believe it - my little slice of the internet interested someone other than myself - WOW! 

Due to being so thankful to you all and wanting to celebrate my first year of blogging, I wanted to hold a giveaway for you all! This giveaway is only a small one but it's been carefully thought out and I think you will all really like the prizes I have bought for you. 

The prizes!!

As you can tell, I am giving away a tin of the new limited edition Vaseline (featured here) and a mini Liz Earle 'Cleanse & Polish' including one of their pure muslin cloths. The prizes you will receive are the ones pictured above and of course they have all been bought brand new for the lucky winner. I have also bought these with my own money. None of them are freebies or gifted items!

  5. I'm loving posts about products which didn't impress. Maybe i'm a bit sadistic on reading bloggers bash a product but i'm really into them! :') xo

    1. No it's not sadistic at all haha! I think there are so many products out there that are raved about and it's often nice to see a different kind of review. I personally love watching 'products not worth the hype' videos on YouTube and there have also been a few good blog posts! xx
