50 Posts on Black Tulip Beauty!

Hey everyone!

I cannot believe I am sat writing my 50th post to upload to this blog, I posted my first post on the 10th January this year as it was one of my New Years Resolutions. I then continued to erratically post 7 more as and when I felt like it until becoming ill and abandoning it until June when I started to realise it was one of the only interesting things I could do whilst being stuck in my house bored and unwell.

That’s when I really started to take things seriously and pick up a few tips whilst doing so, I can’t believe how much I have actually achieved in such a small amount of time and I thought I’d share with you a few things I’m really proud of: blogging and social media-wise. They might seem really small or pathetic to some people but seeing as I’ve only been consistently blogging for around 3 months, I think they’re pretty fabulous!

  • Became a brand ambassador for and built a good relationship with one of my absolute favourite brands.
  • Won a competition to have a bath bomb design made and sold as a limited edition product with said brand which you can read about here.
  • Made a group of fabulous and supportive friends all over the UK that I talk to every day.
  • Been approached by multiple brands asking me to review their products and feature them on my site.
  • Approached by a brand to create a series of looks and a tutorial video for their social media and website to promote their products (coming soon…yay!)
  • Drastically improved my writing and photo taking.
  • Now own a site domain with daily visitors from all over the world.
  • Hit 3,600+ views on my original wordpress blog and another 3,000+ on this self hosted site since mid August.
  • One of my photos re-posted on The Body Shops Instagram.
  • A tweet from L’oreal saying they loved my makeup look which you can see here.
  • Sent a voxbox of halloween goodies from Influenster (post coming soon!).

I’m so happy with how my little page on the internet is coming along – slowly but surely and I’m loving every minute of writing and uploading content. I still can’t believe people actually want to read what I have to say half the time, haha!

What has been not necessarily your biggest but your most favourite achievement?

’Til next time,
BTB Xx

    Girl, I have loved seeing you grow! I can not believe you’ve only been blogging since January. You’ve accomplished soo much and it’s lovely to see. I don’t know what’s my biggest achievements, there’s definitely a lot but I think what I’m most proud of is blogging constantly! I know it may sound silly but yes I’ve been blogging for two years, but for about a year I was only blogging like once a week if I remembered! I am very proud of you and I can not wait to see where you take your blog next.

    One word: congratulations. The most important thing is that you keep working hard. It’s all about dedication, and yours shows in all the brands approaching you. About the bathbomb is great.
