My blog’s 5th birthday and a humongous giveaway!

Merry Musing

Wow. What can I say? Today marks the day this little blog turns five. FIVE! I know I often say this for a laugh but it’s true. This blog is my longest commitment. I’ve not been in a job or a relationship as long as I’ve had this blog. Not only is this the biggest commitment in my life. But it’s also my biggest passion. The thing that I think about day in and day out. There really is no downtime when you’re running a side hustle like this. But I really wouldn’t have it any other way. This blog brings me so much. It gives my life a purpose and a sense of enjoyment and fulfilment that I’m not sure I can get from any day job.


But don’t get me wrong. It’s also at times incredibly tough. It’s time-consuming and exhausting. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve cancelled plans. Worked late into the night. Or had to leave early because of the blog. But those are sacrifices I’m happy to make. Because I do love what I do. I love my blog and the content I get to create. And the amazing brands I get to work with. I honestly wouldn’t change it for the world. But I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without you lovely lot who choose to read my ramblings, follow me on social media and just support me and this blog. So to say thank you. I’ve teamed up with some of my favourite brands to offer one of you an amazing prize.

    My favourite kind of blogpost to read is a review of a new product. I love to read up on things before I take the plunge myself and buy it! Merry Christmas xx
