Happy 1st Birthday to my Blog!!!/TMI TAG

Hello Everyone!

 My apologies for the missing pictures. My pictures were accidentally deleted off my blog. Please Refer to my Instagram account miss_pilar to view the pictures (or some of the pictures) that were deleted.  
Today is a very special post for me because my blog is a year old today!! It seems so surreal that I've been blogging for a year!

Why I started blogging...

Before July 2013, I've always wanted to write a blog, but I never found the time especially during my college days. Last year I finally found some time and stopped putting it off. I just went for it! I wanted to share my love for all the things I found interesting, and relate to other bloggers who shared my interests.

How blogging has been an addition to my life...

I definitely can say blogging has been a positive addition to my life. Blogging has made me realize and rediscover all of the things I love to do. Blogging has also given me an opportunity to share my inspirational posts. Everyone can benefit from inspiration, encouragement, and positive words. I like blogging because it makes me happy and I enjoy it!

Thank You...

First I want to thank my mom and my two besties for supporting and encouraging me to blog!

Here's the gifts my Mom got for me for my blog's first anniversary. That was super sweet of her 💖





Next, I want to thank the companies for sponsoring my blog and sending me items to review. I appreciate the opportunity working with you!

Last, but not least I want to thank all my followers and readers. I appreciate you reading, commenting, and supporting my blog! 

Here's some NYX products I purchased during their website sale. How cute is this little bag?!

Happy One Year! You got some great gifts. I love the tag too. You are so sweet, Pilar. I haven't seen The Elephant Man, but it sounds like it would make me cry too. I recently read Cinder, a futuristic retelling of Cinderella, and it was kind of interesting. It's YA fiction, but I liked it more than I was expecting. xoxo Lauren

Thank you Maurissa! Law and Order SVU is an amazing show!

Pilar said...

Thank you Lauren for the kind words! Girl that movie was such a tearjerker to me lol. Cinder sounds like an interesting book, I'll have to check it out! I'm enjoying the gifts!
