365 Days Later - Happy First Birthday Charbuckss

It's been a whole year since I posted my introductory post on this blog and it's really quite hard to believe how much having a blog has changed me as a person. Not in a hugely dramatic way, but I've met new people, I've become more educated in the Media industry and the part I'd love to make a career of in the future, and dare I say it, my general taste in things has improved, and lets not forget the dent being a part of the beauty and lifestyle blogging community has made in my bank balance. 

I wasn't exactly sure what to expect when I first set up the blog. I'd been reading blogs for a few months, always being too scared to take the step in starting my own, but I'm so glad I did. Yes, there's been months where I've only posted a couple of posts, but I always come back, and I will continue to keep posting, and quite frankly that's because of you. That's right, because of you, the person who is reading this. As much as I love blogging for my own benefit, I've enjoyed it even more so because of interaction with other people with the same passions and interests as me. It really does make my day to wake up with a new follower or a new comment. I never expected to have 200 readers, and I appreciate every single one of you. 

I thought I'd do a summary of the adventures we've been on together as a blogger and a reader. If I'm honest, looking back on my blog today has made me quite emotional. Regardless of the poor quality photos and strange posts at the start, I've actually posted many milestones in my life on this blog. Lets look back...

You caught me on a good year, before I went to Spain last year I hadn't been abroad for a long time. You shared my experiences in Spain (Barcelona), Los Angeles and Poland - detailed post still to come. Whether it was flying for the first time, leaving Europe for the first time, and going to a hot country for the first time, you've all been there to see it all. Lets just hope I go to places just as exciting in the next year!

Other than jetsetting across the globe, you've shared my experiences at the great British seaside, on university visits to Newcastle, day trips out to London and the Cotswolds, and a week in a potentially haunted mill in Staffordshire. You've seen me hit big milestones, from turning eighteen to leaving school and collecting my A level results.

It's been a pretty exciting year really, hasn't it? I plan to stick around for the future, and I hope you all choose to stick around here too. Thank you for being lovely.
