A year later and blogging has not only changed me, but also my life. 

I've now been blogging for a full year - by full year I mean my blog has existed a year now, but I wouldn't exactly say I've been blogging a year. Anyways, never would I have imagined my blog would be where it is right now? I mean, I'm not only on the Clinique mail list, I not only received a pair of custom made heels but I've also managed to grab myself a pretty, cool, new job through it.

Looking back a year and I must admit that I've had quite the journey. But it's been a good one. A journey that has transformed me into the person I am now. A confident, bubbly and very ambitious person. So, if you are thinking of creating a blog: DO IT. You never know what may happen.

How blogging has changed me and my life. 
Blogging has so many benefits and like I keep mentioning, it has changed my life in many ways. So here are a few of them:

Amazing Blogger Friends: A year later and I have made some incredible friendships. I have a WhatsApp group with a fantastic bunch of bloggers from across the world, I am part of London-based blogger groups on Instagram and some of my closest friendships happened through Instagram too. There will always be a stigma when it comes to making friends online, but there are so many amazing people who positively enhance my day on a daily basis without ever having met them.

Creativity: I have always been a creative person, but my level of creativity is now on a new level. It not only shines through my photos but also through my clothes. I am more experimental and enjoy playing around with patterns and shapes. I used to be a very careful shopper and never bought anything that was 'too out there', but blogging has turned me into a new person. Someone who wants to explore new trends, master the art of flatlays and creative stunning photographs for my Blog/Instagram.

Working with amazing people/Collaborations: In the past year, I've had some stunning collaborations with brands and other creatives. Some of the people I've worked with are just truly inspiring and have shown me what this industry is about. It's about being there for one another and inspiring others.

Confidence: I've never been someone who was lacking confidence really, but a confidence boost doesn't exactly hurt. However, I never felt too comfortable wearing clothes that made me stand out. Whereas now all I wanna do is wear fluffy coats, mix patterns and wear incredible shoes.
