Last Tuesday on the 5th July was my 5th blogiversary, I was going to post this post then, but as usual, life got in the way. But better later than never hey? I still can’t believe that I have been blogging for 5 years. When I first started out there wasn’t many UK blogs around but now there are loads! So when I was asked what I did and I said I was a blogger, people kept asking me ‘What’s that?’ But now that there are so many and a lot of well know ones, and well know vloggers too like Zoella, people know what I am on about when I say that I’m a blogger. I even saw a cute t-shirt a few months back in Peacocks that said ‘Future Blogger’.

To celebrate 5 years blogging I am having a giveaway for my lovely readers to say thank you. As with out any of you, my blog would just be me rambling away to myself with no one listening.
