Exactly two years ago the very first beauty post was published here on this blog. Looking back at it, I would have never thought how much blogging would mean to me as it does now and how much I've gained in the process!
It's not just an outlet to me, although that part shouldn't be underestimated, and it's more than just a pastime: it's a record of my beauty related adventures & discoveries - the..."shallow" and exterior part of that anyway (which serves as a reminder that it should go hand in hand with inner improvement as well), a voice that urges me to become even more creative with my looks, an exercise in discipline (as any task that requires putting words into sentences every so often with a content as much organised and thorough as possible),but most importantly, a way to communicate and share interests and ideas with similar-minded people all around the world. I've been very fortunate to have come close to a number of people through blogging and I consider some to be my friends in every aspect of the word, and that alone is a blessing by itself.
But clearly none of this would have been possible without those of you that have been reading my posts and commenting and following all this time, from those of you that have stuck with me since day one (you know who you are) to those of you that discovered me along the way. I'm not gonna say I blog about myself, because I honestly don't. I don't blog to up my follower count either; I blog because I think that someone might benefit from my ramblings, simple as that! :)
So, today, on All the Vanity's 2nd blog anniversary, I thank each and every one of you!!! Your support is very much appreciated, I wouldn't have been doing this without you!!! And to give back some of that appreciation, I decided to put together a little giveaway! :)
