This week something exciting happened; Hello Freckles turned 2!
Unfortunately I didn't post on my official blog birthday, so here it is, a few days later. My sister being the star baker she is, made a cake to celebrate and I'm sure you're equally impressed by her efforts. This is a pistachio and rosewater cake and not only does it look fairly amazing, it tastes really good too. She really needs to start a baking blog doesn't she?! I mean just check out all her baking efforts on instagram.
I can't believe Hello Freckles is something I've been doing for two years now. There I was a few years ago, with my little blog and I decided to just go for it and actually buy a domain and stick with one name. Hello Freckles seemed like a good name at the time and here I am, two years later, still happy I chose it!
I've done quite a lot over the past 24 months (aside from finishing university, graduating, getting a job, buying a car etc. which are all amazing achievements on their own) from collaborating with a bunch of different brands; Very being a highlight since I featured in a magazine available nationally. To taking part in a Zip Wire Challenge, being able to try out some new products before they launch, eating at new restaurants, taking family along to see Wicked, an amazing spa day and so many more opportunities! Not forgetting winning an award for Best Lifestyle Blog which is absolutely incredible. I'm so grateful for all the support I've had from family, friends and everyone who continues to enjoy the content I post on here, that means you reading this right now too. Thank you, I really do appreciate it.
I was thinking earlier in the week about holding a giveaway as a little thank you for following and to celebrate my blog being 2. I've not yet decided what I'll be giving away, so if you have suggestions for what you'd like to see, do let me know in the comments. Looking at my previous giveaways it's likely to be something Nars related...but I'm sure that'll be okay, right? Alternatively, I do have an idea for something a little different since I know there'll be some of you out there who maybe aren't into makeup and would appreciate something a little different.
Thanks again for your continued support and here's to another 2 years!
