Blog's 1st Birthday



Hi everyone,

So one year ago today I started writing this blog. I am proud of myself for sticking with it. Sometimes I tend to leave things fall by the wayside but I didn't with 'Love on a Shoe String'. I have really been enjoying the experience. Although if I am honest (and I think it is obvious) I find it hard to come up with ideas for posts. I didn't really know what angle to take when I started this journey. That is why I write about things I do and/or am interested in. This is what I will continue to do for the foreseeable future. That said, make-up is probably the area that excites me most. For the coming year I aim to do make-up looks with the products I currently own and new products I occasionally treat myself to.

Over the past year I have achieved one of the goals I set out to do - I have continued to post regularly and hope to do so even more next year.
A goal I have not achieved but will carry forward to my blog's second year, is to reach out to some of my readers. I love forming new friendships and swapping ideas with like-minded people. So my aim for the year ahead is to make at least one online friend through this personal platform. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to drop by and I would be honoured to get to know some, if not all of you. 

On that note, I would like to say thank you for stopping by today and happy birthday little blog. 

With love,

Gem xx
