In September 2011 I was living by myself (for the entire summer) in my house for my second year of university in Durham as I had to continue to work in order to pay the rent. This meant that I couldn't go home to Devon to see my family and ended up feeling very lonely and out of touch with everything that wasn't McDonald's (my workplace). I decided that month to begin writing Confetti Letters as a space to plot all my thoughts, my love affair with my bank card and my quest for perfection. Confetti Letters was originally a space for me to chart my journey into my twenties, and here I am 2 years later and reflecting on the people I've met through this blog (both in real life and online), the events I've been to because of it with brands I adore (Benefit and The Body Shop I'm talking to you!) and the amount of knowledge I've gained from seeing other people's blog creativity.
I have never intended to make any money from my blog, it's purely a scrapbook for me to put into pretty pictures and words what I enjoy in my life and wish to share. To this end, while you may see the odd sponsored post (I've only ever done one, and turned down two others thus far), or the odd gifted product, you will never see advertising here or sponsored links or anything else of that nature. I'm not against advertising etc on blogs, I just don't think it'd fit in with what my blog means to me as originally it was my way, back in September 2011, of feeling alive and connected to the world.
I would like however, in this post to do a little giveaway for those of you reading, new or old, to thank-you for taking an interest in my ramblings and for sharing your love of beauty, fashion, and most importantly life with me. When the offline world becomes too much, it's always an honour to click on to my Blogger dashboard and read about the goings on of others and get lost in your lives for a while.
You can win: 1 x £10 gift card to be used in Boots and 1 x £10 gift card to be used in Topshop ( my two current addictions). And a surprise, because we all love surprises, non? I have3 rules:
