First blogversary and giveaway! (Closed)

Hi guys!

!!!!!!! OMG it’s my first blogversary !!!!!!!

I can’t tell you guys how excited I am. One year has passed since I started blogging. It’s unbelievable!


On this special day, I decided to do some facts for you, as below:

1) I STARTED BLOGGING because, I wanted to share ideas, opinions & my knowledge with others and meet awesome people from around the world. It’s an exhilarating feeling when people view my posts and comment on them :). I have 6867 views at the moment. How awesome is that!!

2) My FIRST EVER POST was a really short introduction. At that point, all I knew was that I didn’t want my blog to be about any one thing only. I felt that to be boring. I wanted it to be a versatile one. I wanted to be able to write about just anything. I am pleased by the kind of posts I have put out so far and the kind of response I have got. I have done product reviews, book reviews, DIY cards, DIY haircare/skincare posts etc.

3) My FIRST EVER PRODUCT REVIEW was for MAC’s Kissable Lipcolor in Flaunting it.

4) My FIRST EVER FOLLOWER was Kate of Sleeping Bootay, from Ireland. Her posts are full of liveliness and loaded with awesomeness :D. I am thankful to her for placing her trust in me, even though I was a newbie at blogging.

5) I have SEVENTY followers so far!. Thank you so much for following me, you guys. Though there are 70 of you wonderful people, its just a very few of you who show constant support by commenting/liking my posts. I am extra thankful for those of you. You know who you are 🙂

6) My blog has received THREE awards so far. All of them were awarded to me by Monica of Impressions of a Princess. I am yet to do a post on my third award. I will do it soon 🙂

7) Including the giveaway in this post, I have done THREE giveaways so far. I love giving back to you guys. So please do support me by letting me know your thoughts on my posts.

8) My TOP THREE COMMENTERS are Monica of Impressions of a Princess, Praseena of Coral Crue and Charlotte of Book Adoration. I am ever so thankful for your love and support!

9) The BEST THING ABOUT BLOGGING is that I could meet so many new and wonderful people from all around the world. I have met fellow book lovers, people who share my love for makeup and even book authors!. Blogging has made me a better person I can say. Because of it, I always have something to look forward to in my mundane day to day life.

10) Out of the 45 published posts so far, two posts have CROSSED OVER 500 VIEWS each. They are posts about Sunfeast Dark Fantasy biscuit (MY FAV EVER) and Dubai Shopping Festival.

11) I FELT REALLY SAD when I lost TWO followers right after my last giveaway winner announcement. Believe me, the giveaways are to show that I appreciate you. Not everyone can be a winner. Know that if you don’t win this time, there is always a next time as I will definitely be doing more giveaways!. It’s disgraceful when people follow for only giveaways. Its saddens me.


Blogging requires a lot of time and effort to be invested into each post. The least you guys could do is let me know your FEEDBACK as that is what I consider to be the reward for the effort I put in. I am not asking for a long comment. A single sentence would do!. Also, if you really like a post, please SHARE that post using the buttons below each post. It would make my world!


In order to celebrate one year of blogging, I would love to give away the following:
