daisybutter - UK Style Blog: photo diary, birthday, cake, style blog


Today marks a whopping two years since my first post at this blog! Two years! It's strange to think that it's been two years since I bit the bullet and started tapping away at my laptop to a faceless reader, but even stranger that I can sit here now and recognise some of my oldest readers, my newer readers and all the lovely pals I've made along the way. I just want to say thanks for supporting my blog with all of your comments, Tweets, emails and messages, I still read each and every one of them, try to reply to all of them, and I'm still surprised and grateful that people are interested in what I have to say. (Was about to crack into a 'And how lovely to see all your bright, happy faces smiling up at me. I'm sure we're all going to be very good friends.' thing then, Professor Umbridge style!)

I'm so proud of how my blog has expanded, without sounding too arrogant or corny. I honestly never expected it to grow beyond more than a few words a week/month and it's first follower *cough*me*cough*. Who would've known when I signed up to Blogger that things like taking 20+ macro photographs of meals before eating, co-ordinating colour choices to lighting situations, attending Fashion Week and feeling very very small, and even after parties in hotel rooms with bloggers would become everyday practice?! Here's to two years of blogging about materialistic things that make me happy, and many more to come.

Anyway! I'm off back to Uni tonight with Ebs - I've got an Online Branding and Street Fashion masterclass and some grown-up, post-Uni talks to go to tomorrow, before hopping on a train to come straight back in the evening. Sweet. 

PS. I'm hoping my Week in Photos will be back to normal posting next weekend, I haven't taken many 'blog' photos recently, I've been focusing on the family snaps instead! If you're interested though, I have a 365/366 photo blog here as part of my 2012 goals.
