It’s My Fifth Blogaversary!

Five years ago today I started this perfume blog. It was lonely and small and I was learning on the job. Five years later I know more than I did but still less than I want to.  I can’t imagine not doing it now.

The highlights of my five years of blogging are all related to the thrill of seeing that readers have clicked, read, commented, retweeted, followed me or told a friend.  I would look like a massive loser if none of you did any of those things and I am very grateful for every single one.

Since I am five, I get the birthday privilege of asking my guests to like me and think I’m great.  No need for presents and plane tickets and jewellery, ( unless you were going to anyway?) just be my Instabuddy, Twitter follower and like me on Facebook.  That, and a large cheque to help me out after Christmas, would be lovely. Thank you. And some more chocolate.  And a butler.  Nothing else.  And a housekeeper.  A fifty four convertible  too. Light blue.

It’s not all about me!

In the next couple of days (football and  children permitting), I will be posting an IScent GIVEAWAY , so watch this space and please do stop for a bit of birthday cake.

Thank you my dear blog friends. Big Welsh cwtches to you all. xxxxx

Four years ago today I decided to start a blog about something I was passionate about.

My very first review was Lanvin Arpege

In that four years I have learned to love things I didn’t used to like, go off things I once loved,  and try things I’ve never tried before. I don’t want to scare you away by using the word “journey” but that’s what it’s been and that’s what it still is.   I never give up seeking treasure and thunderbolt moments and  even when I get them,  I am still thirsty for more.

 

The best bit has been meeting you lovely readers, albeit via the Internet. I have never met such a lovely or more generous bunch of folks. With your comments, likes, suggestions and shared memories and anecdotes, you have made every moment worthwhile. It’s been a tricky couple of years on the personal front, and I can honestly say that focussing on this has really helped me, even on those days when negative thoughts block out the sunshine.

The worst bit? Oh, that’s easy. The worst bit was smelling Etat Libre D’Orange Secretions Magnifiques. No contest, right Lisa?

It’s time to pay it forward, so watch this space for several giveaways.  It’s the least I can do to say thank you.

Here’s to having fork handles on my cake!
