I can't believe one year ago, I finally did what everyone kept telling me to do. It's been a crazy and intense year. I went from posting 4 times a week, to posting 2 times a week, to finally, this week, removing my music and photography section. I'm going to focus solely on cruelty free beauty and lifestyle products and brands. I would have never thought a year ago, I would stop writing about music.
I love reading your comments, feedback, and interacting with the cruelty free community. I want to make sure you know I am listening and I am trying my best to accommodate all of your requests. I screenshot conversations I have with you guys about what you want to read and see from me. And because of that feedback, I finally started a YouTube channel to go along with the site.
I have learned so so so much from this entire experience. I have also had such an amazing privilege to be able to feature so many amazing brands and makers. I truly believe that the reason my site is doing as well as it is, is because my Meet The Maker series. So thank you so much to all the brands that have been featured and to those currently working with me! I am beyond thankful.
I don't know where the site will take me in the next year, or even 5 years from now, but what I do know is that I love it. Writing is my passion and to be able to write about brands and products I truly love, makes it even better. They say when you do something you love, you're not working, and I totally feel that way about the site (even though sometimes I want to punch my computer because it's an XP and works like poo and I need a new one).
I don't want to get all mushy, but I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you....to everyone that reads, to everyone that shares, to everyone that's been a part of this journey the past year. I am so extremely grateful to do this. So many people ask me if this will be my full time job, and I can't answer that. At the moment, it can't be. Maybe one day, but regardless, I'm just happy I'm writing.
With all that said, of course I have to do a giveaway. Remember that Whole Foods bag? YUP! I told you I was going to do a giveaway, and what better way to celebrate my 1 Year Anniversary, then with a bag full of goodies!
I do have some requests to be a part of my giveaway:
1. Subscribe to my YouTube channel, watch the video below, and leave a comment!
2. Make sure you are following me here (Bloglovin'), and on IG.
3. Leave a comment below about what you want to see from me and the blog! Any makers you want featured?
4. Visit and like my Facebook page. (optional)
You are all as much a part of this site as I am, for if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be writing this today. As our site evolves, I look forward to all of you continuing playing an important role in our journey. Again, thank you all so very much for all your love, support, and feedback.
