Happy Bithday to ya...Happy Birthday to ya...Happppy Birrrrthday!

Can you believe it folks, Life Looks Perfect is one years old today! Still a baby I know but I can't believe how much it has grown since those early days last January. Originally a place where both Jess and I could have an excuse to buy too many products (you know the line it's for the blog! hehe) and chat about beauty. Well it hasn't changed much then has it??

This year hasn't been easy for me and I know so many of you have supported me and your kind words have brightened a many dark days. Having Life Looks Perfect in my life has been a place to share some hot beauty news, paint my nails literally every day, stay over at Jess' flat every other day and spend too much time online. I look back at some of my earlier posts and oh my, you poor readers, not only were my photographs atrocious, I honestly had not a clue about how to write about beauty, let alone inform others in a subject that I was only just starting to get to grips with. To any of you lovely lot who have been with me from the start, you can say it out loud (I won't be offended!)...thank goodness those days are over. Although my writing style has stayed consistent, I now know more than I ever have about beauty. I would call myself a real beauty blogger or at least I finally feel like one (lets hope I don't become too much of an enabler hehe Keep your purses locked up!)

As you may have noticed, I have been blogging solo for a good few months now. Jess hasn't forgotten about the blog or abandoned her love for beauty, as oh boy her make up skills make me uber jealous, blogging just hasn't become a hobby that she has wanted to keep up. We all know that it can be a huge struggle to find time, content and products to keep us all motivated to write everyday and throughout the year. I know I have had to take lots of breaks when life gets tough and you have to just focus on yourself for a while.

I am not sure on how to make the transition from a sister duo into a solo blogger or even if I want to, as to be honest, I am quite scared to put myself out there alone. There are so many incredible solo beauty bloggers, I am always questioning what I can bring to the party. I think my Sunday Love #1 post kinda said it all for me. I want to spread the blog love and get to know every single one of you. It is you that keeps me going and hearing that you love reading Life Looks Perfect, makes my heart fill with happiness. I truly am so grateful. I love blogging and I'm not going anywhere.

Now to the part where I stop being all sentimental and start treating you lovely people! For Life Looks Perfects 1st Blog Birthday I wanted to run a #LLPGiveaway starting tonight and running all through next week until my favourite part of the weekend #bbloggers chat on Sunday. I tried to pick products that I have loved using throughout the whole year and would be suitable for a majority of my readers and followers of all ages. I hope you like the selection folks. PS. Yes there is a colour theme! I am such a loser! And don't forget to read the last extra special prize, which I will hand pick for the chosen winner, once you have been picked!

  5. I too, a fellow beauty blogger, have just come across your website via the #bblogger tag on Twitter (I'm having problems with my pageviews today, 1600 something at the minute and usually only 150 so tweeted to ask for help!). Anyway, enough about my problems, this looks like an amazing giveaway. I am now following you on Bloglovin' and looking forward to reading more from you both.
