The Likely Lady is 5 Years Old!

31 January 2014

Too right!
This beautiful little blog o' mine is now the grand old age of 5! How did that happen, you glamorous dame..?

From the first post, waaaay back in January 2009 (aptly entitled 'The First of Many?', with a Topshop & Bebaroque wishlist), I've learned so so much on the road to where the blog is now..

For a start, I was 17 years old & used to sit snuggled up in my childhood bed scribbling in my moleskine diary each evening (Emma will tell you, it was a sight to behold..) whilst dreaming of things I wanted to do, feverishly scanning Gala Darling & manifesting my dream life. I'm now 22, about to graduate Uni and - hopefully! - work my butt off and go pursue those dreams! Education is almost over & the real world is teasing me with its charms (& terrors)..

Along the way, I've learned about: SEO (!!!! goddamnit, I really should go back and sort out those pre-historic posts..), post formatting, image editing & developed my writing style. Only this year, I've implemented a regular post schedule, whereas last year I started to regularly attend blogging events! It's all go over here.

This little slice of the internet has even gained me internships & job opportunities, and allowed me to make my mark on the world. And, for that, I am amazed! I never thought that would ever have been possible from the age of 17; sitting in my bed scribbling thoughts.

But, one thing I'm particularly grateful for are the friends & contacts I've made along the way.. ♥ You guys know who you are & I love each and every one of you!! Thanks for becoming "real pals" *said in a Kirsty voice* and helping me along the way in all your individual ways. Special thanks to Gillian for making my blog look 100x more beautiful than I could ever manage without her help!

So, one big champagne toast & a big bite out of an obnoxiously pink cupcake we go! Thanks for your continued reading & commenting, and for establishing the fabulous blogging community we have all become a part of. I can't wait to see which adventures I get up to this year with new & old friends..

From scribbled dreams to a beautiful reality, thank you!

xoxo
