Half Year Roundup & Giveaway

Today marks the day that I've officially been blogging for 1.5 years! I feel like time is really zooming by this year and I can barely keep up. Honestly, creating a blog has to be one of the best ideas that ever came to me haha. I've learnt so much throughout a short period of time and I've e-met a ton of wonderful people. I always see people on Twitter complaining about the bitchiness of the beauty side of the blogosphere, but I've personally never encountered nor witnessed any of the sorts, so I just have to say that I'm happy I'm surrounded by such nice and supportive bloggers. 

Looking back to my first few posts, a lot has changed. I have to give a big shoutout to all the bloggers who share their photography tips! My photos would not be the way they are now if it weren't for them lol. The format of my posts are a big one as well. I feel like in the beginning, the style of my posts were all types of ways, but now I have a certain way that I like to style posts that are much more pleasing to look at. Though I've been blogging for 1 and a half years, I've enjoyed every minute of it and I found a real passion for creating and writing. Here are a few of my favourite posts from 2017 thus far:

Last year when I hit my half way mark, I held a giveaway. I plan to keep that tradition for every half year I reach. So here's a giveaway for my readers: I'll be giving away one Benefit Porefessional Primer, a Bite Beauty Multistick in Cashew, an eyeshadow palette (either the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette or Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette), and I'll be throwing in a few face masks in as well. The giveaway is open internationally - anyone can enter; entrants below 18 must ask permission from a guardian. This will run for 3 weeks - July 11 to August 1. The eyeshadow palette will be determined by the majority vote (see giveaway form for instructions); depending on availability. A winner will be chosen and contacted after the giveaway has closed; winner will have 24 hours to respond before prize is forfeited and a new winner is chosen.
