Life Lately + My 1 Year Blogiversary

Sometimes its really weird when I look back and see how fast 2017 has passed by. The first thing I do when the year ends is check my goals and how many I have achieved. This year was good to me, yes there were slip-ups and all but I actually achieved most of my goals!

It’s definitely amazing to be crossing this milestone and I am super hyped to share this with all of you. I am glad I did not quit blogging even after I lost all my content earlier in my blogging journey. Sometimes I wonder why I continued after that bad mishap but then blogging is something I  enjoy doing. I could not think of a life without it. Also I am grateful for all the love and encouraging comments I have received on here, they have truly been the most crucial factor in my journey.

So what have I been up to so far? 

Honestly, I have just been spending the bulk of my time as a full time final year student currently writing exams and my undergraduate project. Exams finished last weekend so I definitely have more free time on my hand now.

Also I am pretty excited as I am going to host my first blog giveaway sometime this month to mark my blogversary and share some Christmas love.

I hate unexpected expenses so when my laptop fell yesterday and the screen broke – it was not a good experience. And I can’t deal with broken screens so I need to find a way to fix this silly laptop.

Problems I have faced in my blogging journey?

I’d say the biggest issue I have faced is finding photographers to take pictures of my outfits. I know this is one of the main issues faced by a lot of fashion bloggers and I plan to solve this by getting my own camera soon.

Another big problem I have encountered was losing my blog content. This would definitely leave anyone feeling unmotivated and uninspired and I sure did feel that way. But after a while, I decided to look at the bright side – I could start afresh and avoid mistakes made in my past experience and that’s exactly what I did.

What’s New for the Blog?

Now that I am a one year old blogger I would be adding a blog tips section to the blog. There are some little things I have learnt on my journey that might be beneficial to another blogger out there. The Girlpower section on the blog has not been updated in a while so if there’s anyone you would like to see featured, just shoot an email or dm.

Getting a professional camera was one of my goals this year that has not been crossed out yet but I hope to do this as early as next year. I’m looking to purchase the Sony mirrorless cameras mainly due to quality and portability (Any other suggestions would be welcome!)

I tweaked my blog theme a lot this year but I think I have finally settled with one that I am utterly in love with. But I would love to know how you guys feel about the theme and blog in general as this would help me improve. Help me fill this 1 minute survey so I can use the feedback to improve my blog!

From my stats, these are the posts that have received the most loving this year.
