Ok… Maybe not like Patsy is demonstrating here but you get the gist!
A year ago today I created the blog & haven’t looked back since! I came into the blogging game wanting to expand my journalistic skills & now here I am (not a megablogger like my blogging inspirations (for example, Susie from Style Bubble & Kavita from She Wears Fashion) but I’m happy with my progress so far!
I never expected to achieve what I have in my short time as a fashion blogger. I have been lucky enough to have received exposure from brands & figures such as: ISWAI, Hottt.com, Charlotte Simone, Hayden Williams, Whistle & Bango, Mallzee & London Fashion Weekend! I have also been lucky enough to host a giveaway with Hottt.com, review products for Future Eyes & even attend London Fashion Weekend as part of the press! These opportunities & exposure are things that I cannot thank the above companies for!
If any of you out there are looking to set up your own fashion blog, GO FOR IT! With hard work & determination you can achieve your blogging dream! If you do decide to, I would highly recommend IFB (Independent Fashion Bloggers) as it provides help to any problem you’ll face (I cannot tell you how helpful I’ve found them to be)!
*I APOLOGISE FOR THE CHEESY NATURE OF THE HARD WORK BIT*
I’d like to take a moment to thank you all as none of this would have been possible without you!
I’ll keep this short as I don’t want to bore you all but before I go & celebrate I thought I’d treat you to links of some really stylish, parody garments that are fabulously cheap! They can be found here, here & here (proud owner of this one)!
You’ll also have noticed the nomination for Company Magazine’s Style Blogger Awards in the sidebar. If you would like to nominate Just Having A Giraffe for an award, I’d be so grateful (thank you if you have or are going to)!
I’ll love you & leave you for now lovelies! If you have anything to share with myself (be it general comments or feedback for the blog), please don’t hesitate to comment below or drop me an email (address can be found here)! An example could be maybe you want me to try doing personal style/out of the … posts? Lemme know! 🙂
Here’s to the next year!
