Happy Blog Birthday!

So my blog is officially 1 year old!  Boy, it feels like time has gone by so very quickly – I still remember taking my very first photo (it was the Flatter Me blush from the Archie’s Girls collection at MAC) and then writing my very first blog post to go along with it.  I was quite nervous because I didn’t know whether anyone would read my blog or even like my blog.

I’m not going to get into the details of how many followers I have and how many views I’ve had on my blog, because I don’t think you guys care about that stuff.  PR companies & brands are the only ones who care about a blog’s stats, and at the end of the day I blog for me and for you (my readers).

I would like to thank each and every one of you for making this past year of blogging a very special time in my life.  The love you guys have shown me, be it by sending me an email, commenting on my blog, liking my photos on Instagram / Twitter, following the Pink Peonies Facebook page has been incredible.

I absolutely love interacting with all of you and I appreciate the encouragement & love received from you guys.

I will be doing a ‘Blog Birthday Giveaway’ at the end of March where I’ll be giving away a hamper filled with some of my favourite things (you can call me Oprah during that week – haha!).

To stay in touch, you can find me on the following social media platforms:

Facebook – Pink Peonies Blog

Twitter – Pink Peonies Blog

Instagram – Luzanne6325

Bloglovin’ – Pink Peonies

Thank you for supporting my blog, it means the world to me & never forget that I have love in my heart for each and every one of you!

*Eeeeek, getting a bit emotional there…*

    I have just read ALL your blog posts! I really love your blog, the layout is clean and pretty, your posts are honest with loads of information and great pictures. I can’t believe you don’t like pizza, that was loads of products you took with you to Cape Town!, I loved all your hairstyles in the Dove real beauty post – your hair is amazing!, I really likes the posts on different skin types and you have the most gorgeous wedding picture! Oh and you certainly look way younger than your age. Anyway just a crazy comment saying I love your blog
