A year ago today, I was publishing my first post. I had been following a few blogs for a few months already and knew that I wanted to be a part of this world somehow, even in the smallest way. In reality though, I had no idea what I was getting myself into and what an incredible, positive experience it would turn out to be.

Every little milestone had me jumping for joy, and the first comment (Hi, Elle!) and follower (thank you, Vanessa!) were definitely some of the most special ones - ironically, they both came on days when I wasn't in a great mood and they instantly turned those days around for the better!

As time went by, this blog has become more and more meaningful to me, and though it hasn't grown as quickly as others, I've loved taking the time to enjoy each and every stage. It has pushed me to do things that I otherwise wouldn't have and developed into a space that I'm proud of.

To celebrate this special occasion and thank all of you who have made this blogging experience a fantastic one, I decided to record a personal message. So I present to you my very first video:

Please be kind in the comments section, this is my first foray into video-making (and not a very high-quality one either, my apologies) and to say that I was nervous and shy about talking in front of a camera would be quite an understatement.

If you want to see more from me, you can follow me on Twitter and I have a link to Bloglovin' too in the sidebar - with one follower so far! (thank you so much!!) Also, feel free to e-mail me whenever you have any questions.


  1. Congratulations on your 1 year Blogging Anniversary Ana! That's quite an accomplishment! And it's so sweet of you to do a video for your readers! Cheers to many more years of happy blogging! xxooxxoo

  2. Vlogs are never easy. I was so weirded out the first time that I recorded one. I have since upgraded to being on TV, so it is actually less weird to record your own vlog after that.
    CONGRATS ON YOUR ONE YEAR. I love blog birthdays. They are such milestones!!!
