1 year bloggerversary!

I started my blog one year ago today and I can’t believe how far it’s come! When I started I didn’t think anybody would want to read it and I kept harrasing my friends to check out my blog and now… well I still harrass my friends to check out my blog but at least I can write a post and know that at least other people take the time to read it even if my friends don’t πŸ™‚

I was looking over my early posts and after I stopped myself from cringing at my writing style, my photo taking and shameful EOTD’s, I thought that recreating one of these EOTD’s would be a good way to mark my one year blogging. The look I decided to recreate was my first attempt at an EOTD and it was supposed to be my introduction into using darker eyeshadows. It’s actually not a great look and I would never transition a black shadow straight into such a light colour like I did here but I thought I’d give it another go.

I fully understand if looking at the first pictures I took causes you to laugh because even I cracked up when I saw them πŸ˜€ I mean that first picture of my eye is creepy to say the least and I have no idea why my lashes look so odd! Lol, I was also obviously using a flash that was way too bright and my application skills were definitely lacking!

EOTD 1 year ago:

EOTD today(Lol it’s still not the greatest look but I think it’s definitely a vast improvement!):

This last year has really helped me hone my makeup skills, and even though I have a lot left to learn, I think I’ve definitely improved. I also think my blogging style has improved alot and my picture taking is definitely much better! Hopefully a year from now I’ll have learned even more and I’ll look back on these pictures and see how far I’ve come.

Thank you to all of you who take/have taken the time to follow, read and comment on my blog because it always makes my day πŸ™‚ You guys are awesome and I truly appreciate all of your support! I’m hoping to get back into blogging more often once the chaos my life currently is quitens down and I have more time and energy to focus on posting regularly.

If you have any suggestions/feedback on how I can improve my blog or what you want to see more or less of, please leave a comment below.

Hope you’re all having a great week!
