Modesty Brown turns Two

I've dithered over whether or not to let this day go unmarked. But after seeing my time travelling content thief celebrating Modesty Brown's 1st birthday (I kid you not), I thought it was silly not to.

So, another year on and I'm still here. There have been ups and downs but most importantly for me, lots of giggles. Major highlights for me were meeting Rebecca Morrice Williams of Becca Cosmetics, having my makeup done by Gina Brooke at Hourglass and also releasing one of my makeup heroes, Caroline Barnes, from the loos in the The Dorchster. My trip to Boots HQ with Charlotte Lipglossiping is an occasion I will never forget either. From getting to see the inner working of Boots to chatting till the small hours like a teenager on a sleepover, I had the most amazing time. I bored some poor guy on the day, rabbiting on about superglue only to discover recently that said 'poor bloke' was most probably Mike Pocock of Illamasqua Nail Quills and Adele's Louboutin mani fame. Yes, I am indeed morphing into someone's embarrassing Mum......

Things are still a little quieter of late as I continue to establish a new pace. This time last week I was certain that my love affair with blogging was over but I'm hopeful that I can find my feet again. I need to dedicate more time to family things and I just can't maintain daily posts anymore but this doesn't necessarily mean the end. I feel I should apologies for the glut of posts reviewing PR samples at the moment but I'm trying very hard to clear the decks. I'm always strict about what I will accept and have recently turned down events and samples, so I hope you that you don't feel I am compromising my integrity and honesty, as that is something that means a lot to me.

Anyway, I think that more than enough self-indulgent wibbling. Thank you very much for reading and thank you for all the support. Keep on smiling xx

    Happy Birthday! I am very glad to have found your blog a year ago and really enjoy your posts. But I do understand family life with small children (my daughters are 5 and 3)- VERY demanding indeed. But sometimes you need to not be Mummy/Wife/Daughter and we'll be here when you have a minute!

  7. Happy, happy bloggy birthday! Please keep doing what you're doing - we don't care at what rate you do it... but our feed readers would be so much the worse off without an MB update.

    And yes, our "sleepover" was highlight of my year! I think I actually fell asleep mid-sentence haha x

  9. Happy birthday! I must have missed the bit about theft, how dare they. I'll have to backtrack and see where I missed it.

    By all means take time for you and your family, and even if you post less often, I'll be there waiting, as you have an important, valuable voice in this little corner of the world.

  14. A very very Happy Blog Birthday to one of the people that initially inspired me to blog and then supported me wholeheartedly when I did - the blogging world would be much less of a joy without you, you really are one of the good guys and I really really mean that. Please keep doing what you do, you have a unique approach that is much admired (sometimes stolen apparently, wtf?) but could not be emulated, as and when it suits you of course! Much love xxx

  20. I'm sorry I haven't had chance to reply to you all individually yet but I wanted to say a huge thanks for all your messages and reassurances. It's greatly appreciated and I confess I may have come over a little misty eyed. You are all so lovely xx

    PS. To those asking about the content thief, someone has been regularly taking my posts and images and re-posting as their own. It's not current stuff and I've had a lot of it removed but they post daily. Hopefully Blogger will relent at some point and remove their blog so I don't have to get each one removed individually.

  21. Congrats on your blog birthday! As you know you are one of my favorites, so don't you go anywhere ;) I do think a reduction in posting can make things feel easier, with your 3 little ones I am surprised that you have anytime for anything :) xx
