  3. Yay! Time to celebrate! Today is my 3 year blogiversary. πŸ™‚ I love how honest you are in your blog; like nothing is off limits. I love chatting with you in the comments on yours and mine blogs-you always leave the sweetest messages. If I had to pick, I’d say my favorite ‘series’ you do is what you’re currently watching. We have a similar taste in shows, so I like to see if you recommend any I haven’t seen before.

  7. I want to say congratulations and that I’m sooooooo glad I found your blog because I love each and every post and look forward to what you have to tell us and show us. I love your journal entries the best and, of course, the Recipe Reviews second best. Oh and the mini book reviews and what you’re watching. I love that you hold nothing back and tell us what you’re thinking and feeling. And of course the drool-worthy food pictures.

    I would like to ask that I NOT be entered in the contest because I don’t really use any beauty products since I never go anywhere except to Walmart. LOL I know you have a lot of beauty-product addicts that follow you so I’d rather see one of them get the box. πŸ™‚

    Happy 2nd Blogoversary!!!!!

  9. Hey girl! A massive congratulations on your 2 year blogiversarry!

    Now I would say that my favourite part of your blog is the food, my goodness, not once have I read your blog that I’m not instantly craving something you’ve eaten, you have damn good taste!

    But… the favourite thing about your blog is how open and honest you are. I love how you share so much with us, even when something goes wrong, like your car, because youre just so relatable. It’s so nice to interact with someone who doesn’t put a bow on everything, youre so fun, and honest, and it’s so nice to read about someone who’s just living and loving life and to share it with others is amazing.
    Even though I dont know you, I feel like I do πŸ™‚
    Yours is one of my favourite blogs, and is always such a joy to read ❀

  11. YASSS congrats on two years! I just hit mine on July 30 so we’re super close! I’m holding a $20 gift card giveaway and thought I’d support other bloggers’ giveaways too plus you never know if you might end up winning one. This giveaway seems so awesome and I wish you the very best for many years to come!

  12. Aww happy blogiversary!! How exciting that you’ve been blogging for two years! And your blog has grown so much in two years, it’s amazing! Just shows how much people like the genuine content you create. ❀ And you deserve all the support and every follower! Isn't blogging just the best hobby?? I've absolutely loved reading your blog and getting to know you! I hope it continues to be such an enjoyable hobby for you for years to come. ❀

    As for your giveaway, girl, that's an amazing giveaway!! Wow, so generous of you!! For my entry (because of course I want to enter lol), I still stand by my opinion from last year that my favorite thing about your blog is how you blog about the real stuff that other people don't usually talk about. It's life and we all experience a lot of the same things, so I like how you talk about literally anything you want to! I feel like you've helped me care less about whether I should or should not talk about something and coming to the realization that if it doesn't bother me then I should go for it. Anyway, love your blog, and you!! You're such a great friend! Congrats on two years!!

      I'm glad I had more to giveaway this year, I wish you the best of luck at winning it all!! ❀ It truly means EVERYTHING to me that I've helped you care less about what you "should or shouldn't" talk about it, it is all about what you're comfortable with!!!

      1. AWW well I love your blog and you’re such a wonderful friend!! I love WordPress, the community here is just the best! I love how many people are blogging too, because there was a time not that long ago that blogs were considered a dated, nerdy, concept lol. Not anymore, and I love it!

        Thank you! I don’t have Twitter though so I’m sure someone else will win lol. Either way, it’s a fun giveaway! Yeah I didn’t realize it until recently, but I feel a lot more comfortable just sharing what I want and realizing that if people don’t want to read it/like it, that’s okay, it’s my blog lol. And I think that’s mostly thanks to you and how real your blog is! Can’t wait to keep reading more of your content! ❀

          That's okay, I don't even have Twitter & only one person has done an extra entry so far so you totally have a chance of winning! ❀

          Yess!! I LOVE that I have helped you become more comfortable expressing yourself on your blog! ❀ You're exactly right!!! If people don't like it, that's totally okay. Just keep doing YOU!! I can't wait to read more of your content as well!! ❀

            I think mine ends this week….yes I just checked. the 28th. Not a lot of people entered mine but that’s ok. I would rather have a person who constantly comments on my blog win than a brand new person who has never seen my blog before tbh. A lot of people seem to look for giveaways and then just never pay attention to your blog anymore πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

                    1. Lol I’m just feeling unmotivated. And idk. I wouldn’t want to rebrand obviously but I feel like it might be good or idk. I’ll look into it because I’ve already made a name for myself I feel like, so to change things that would suck a bit lol idk I’m still thinking it over.

                    2. Ah I totally get it, I hope you find the motivation again soon. β™‘ What would it mean to rebrand? Like start a whole new site? I do think you’ve already made a name for yourself but you can always start again if that’s what you want! Maybe you could just mix up your content?

                    3. Not really starting a whole new site but kind of changing my name but I don’t want to because it’s perfect and it has my husbands name on it. To change it entirely would make it seem like he’s not part of my life anymore but he is? So it’s a bit of a dilemma. Idk. I may not do anything after all. I’m hoping to make a comeback this month for sure with my BoxyLuxe and a few other ideas but i need to find the time to film. I moved my room around again and I’m getting rid of my mirror so that will be interesting LOL
                      And yeah I’ve been thinking about changing up my content. At least on YT. But no one cares about my life so I don’t include none of that haha
