2nd Blog Birthday

Oh my goodness! I cannot believe that my little blog is 2 years old today. They grow up so fast! 

This time in 2011, I was sitting on my sofa, bored after Christmas and thought I'd set up a little blog. At first, it was going to be a personal style blog but then turned briefly into a horrible, generic fashion blog before finally becoming the lifestyle-beauty-fashion-mishmash that it is today.

In that time, over 1200 of you lovelies have decided that it's worth a read. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me! Without doubt, the best thing about starting this blog has been you (yes, you!). Whenever I get a comment, a tweet or an email from a reader, my heart swells a bit bigger. At this rate, it's going to burst out of my chest before I reach my third birthday!

I had absolutely no idea that my ramblings would grow to this. I've had so many wonderful opportunities and met amazing new friends (including a new BFF in Leona!). I just hope this continues to grow and grow throughout the years to come.

Thank you so much to every single one of you reading this! I could never thank you enough!

To celebrate, Rich and I popped over to Basingstoke for a spot of sales shopping!

This hat made me feel like I was in Madeleine. I almost bought it and then remembered that I would never wear it. 

We stopped off for a refreshment break in Costa to build up some strength for the shopping. Mmm, Strawberry Lemonade Cooler...
How did these not sell out? Santa is Coming to Basingstoke? Who wouldn't want to read that! (By the way, in my Vlogmas day 5 video, I read an extract to you!)
I don't know who you are, Kev, but I like you! I think we would be great friends! 
Waterstones, this is not OK! Why would you cover up my future husband's face? Why, Waterstones? WHY?!?!

I may have bought a couple of things in Lush. Just one or two. You know...

Massive Costa cup!

Then it was time for lunch at Ed's Diner. Yum yum yum!

Their mint chocolate milkshakes are the most delicious things in the world!

Exhausted but happy! After filling up on milkshakey goodness, we headed home to chill out and watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Perfect day!
