Hurrah!


I feel like this is a milestone that should be celebrated on my little blogosphere here... I've reached 100 followers on GFC (and about the same amount on Bloglovin' as well), and I just wanted to thank you all who have read my posts, left kind comments, hit that little follow button that updates you on the new ramblings that I decide to share! You all have helped make this such a warm space for me and I truly enjoy hearing back from everybody who comes by to see what I've been able to create.

I've tried starting blogs on several occasions, none of with have worked out, probably because 1. I am lazy and after a while end up abandoning it, and 2. I never really reached out to see what other people were up to and find out what the rest of the blogging community did (I never commented, followed, etc.). I finally took some time this summer to really invest in starting up a blog that would combine my favorite things -- (mainly drugstore) makeup, little fashion bits and hauls, recaps on my week that I can look back on, and a dash of playing around with graphic design here and there, and look at where I've come! In the grand scheme of things and compared to other blogs 100 isn't that big of a number, but to me my first follower was special, and so was my second, my third, and everyone who tallied up and kept leaving wonderful feedback about how much they appreciated my blog and my opinion, and now I feel like I've finally hit a considerable milestone! I love it when people tell me how I introduced them to new products they were interested in trying and how they're excited to pick up some new clothing items because of an inspired look they saw on my blog. This thrills me to no end because it means that my voice matters, even to a little community of people I've found through Salt & Sail. So, basically, this is a sappy post expressing my gratitude to all of you wonderful ladies and gents, and thank you for all of your support and loveliness! Though I'm definitely going to be a lot busier now that school has started I will continue to take time to write about my favorite things. (:

  8. Aw, reading your post was so lovely! I can empathize with how hard it is to sometimes just throw yourself into the community - I always panicked about what people would think of my blog and, like you, didn't really invest time in the blogging community. Now, I read so many blogs and take the time to comment because I know how appreciated it is when I receive a little 'hello.'

    Keep it up :)
