HOOORAAAYYY THIS IS MY 100TH POST ON PHASES OF ROBYN. HOLLAAAAA.
I was going to do a normal post today but decided I’d postpone, step back and reflect on my blog and how far it’s come. I know mum, get the tissues ready.
I’m joking I won’t mush around too much (has anyone really ever heard me say anything slightly cringy in my life? no) but I really do want to say how proud I am of myself that I even created a blog in the first place! I started up POR about 6 months ago because I left university in January and I just needed something to fill my time while I was recovering from a few things. I had it for a month or so before I decided to speak out about it on social media cause I was SO FRIGGIN TERRIFIED – all I could think about was how many times people would say ‘why the f*ck has she started a blog the loser’ and it made me feel like a twat. Eventually I wanted it to actually be seen and thought SCREW THEM HATERS! Best decision I’ve ever made? Yup.
I seriously love blogging, it’s the most enjoyable thing in the world and every day is fun for me! Plus the blogging community is AHMAAAZING! I’m so lucky to have worked with so many amazing brands too and I get genuinely shocked that any store wants me to style up their clothing or accessories – I’m really hoping there’s a lot more to come! My confidence has grown so much (ok this is getting weird and mushy and I feel uncomfortable) because in reality I’m just a little shy girl (yes, really).
The most successful thing to come out of POR has to be being shortlisted for a blogging award! Hayley at Tea Party Beauty has done such a fab job of sorting the #BloggersBlogAwards and I’m still in shock that anyone actually nominated me, let alone be shortlisted… I can’t wait for the ceremony in early October, and I’ll get to meet so many of my fab blogger friends!
Which takes me onto my favourite part of this post – MY BLOGGING SISTAS! I have two groups of you who I love to death, as well as some others who I frequently talk to over Instagram and Twitter. I literally love all my girls to bits and you’re always there to hear my f*cked up stories and weird banter! Blogging is so fun because on a daily basis I’m getting all your first world problems straight to my phone, and I can’t wait to meet you all one day! I won’t name names but you know who you are, my little sassies <3.
I’m not gonna let this post go on for years but I wanna thank everyone for your support, your lovely comments and for sticking by me (even my cheeky/twat friends who take the piss)! You can vote for me in the #BloggersBlogAwards at http://www.teapartybeauty.com/bloggersblogawards-shortlist/ – I’m in the category for the best up and coming fashion blog!
