One Year Later...

L'Amour Lauran has reached the grand age of 1 today! A year ago today I posted my first ever post and year on, 132 followers (GFC and Bloglovin') and over 22,000 hits later I'm amazed by the progress me and my blog have made. It only seems like a few weeks ago, after becoming obsessed with the online beauty community watching the likes of SWalkerMakeup, Gemsmaquillge, Pixi2woo and Pixiwoo on Youtube and deciding I wanted a place to vent my views on things.

This year, has not been amazing for me in terms of my personal life etc, but I have had the chance to go to some lovely events, meet amazing local bloggers and learn a heap about the fashion and beauty industries because of this little space of internet, which definitely made a difference!

So what have you been loving this year? Well here are a few of your most viewed posts:
  1. Review: Barry M Foil Effects...
  2. How-To: Re-Do Your Shoes Jeffrey Campbell Styleee...
  3. Guilty Pleasures: OPI Muppets Collection...
  4. Blonde and Blonder: Progress Day Three...
  5. How To: Nails of the Day Tropical Sunset...
Blogging has lead me to think about other career paths too. This year I have felt that Law is really not the route I should be taking with my life, instead I've been looking at careers in fashion and especially merchandising! A turn around to say the least, but blogging has given me the confidence to stop hiding behind something my parents have always wanted me to pursue and really think about what I want. 

Enough of a ramble from me but just a quick reminder that you can follow me on Twitter (@Lamourlauran) and Bloglovin'! Just click the buttons over there to your right.

A big thank you to all of you out there who are supporting L'Amour Lauran, here's to another year of happy blogging and happy reading :)

Much Love, 
Lauran
