Happy Sunday everyone!

I hope you all are well and have had a lovely weekend. I can’t believe that I’ve got my third blogging award this month! Thank you so much for nominating me Jess 

Being a blogger is so rewarding in the sense that you get to share your passion and thoughts with everyone, but also because you find a community of bloggers that understand the hard work that you put it and appreciate your content.

Blogger Recognition Award

The Blogger Recognition Award is an award made by bloggers for bloggers. It’s a way to let fellow bloggers know that you recognise and appreciate the hard work that they do.

Rules

  • Write a blog post to showcase your award
  • Thank the blogger that nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Share two general pieces of advice for others
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers
  • Let your 15 bloggers know that you have nominated them.

How my blog started…

I started blogging almost two years ago, when I was finishing my second year of university but the original idea came much earlier than that. I had quite a bad reaction to some face cream on my skin and I discovered some of the ingredients that were in the cream didn’t suit my skin at all. After doing some research, I learnt about the chemicals that went in the product were actually made of animal by-products and the company tested on animals. From that point, I learnt more about the cosmetics industry and wanted to share that with everyone else. Unfortunately, this was before I was about to start my first year of university so I decided to put that on hold until I adjusted to university and had time for it.

Advice to new bloggers

Always go at your own pace! It took me longer to get to where I was because most of my focus was on doing well at university and work, but I’m so glad that I didn’t add more pressure on myself. Know when to draw the line and don’t ever feel ashamed of taking a step back. At the end of the day, it’s your blog and you should always feel happy with your work.

It was pretty bad, but if it didn’t happen to me I would have never learnt about the reality of animal testing and that there are safer, more natural options. Thank you Hebah! ♥
