A super special Saturday post today! 4 years ago today I posted my first blog post here on Beauty Babbles (which was back then MacLoverGirl96). What started as summer boredom has now turned to one of my favourite hobbies, and a platform to meet the most amazing people. There are over 250 posts, 600+ followers and many many hours of work surrounding this blog, and I have loved every second of it. There have been times where I haven't posted as regularly, and times when I've felt uninspired. But then there have been the days where all I want to do is write, or take photos. Being a blogger has also made me feel part of this amazing creative community, where I know I can go for beauty advice, or even support when times are hard. 

Like I said, I have made some incredible friends through blogging, just to name a few I want to say a big thank you to my penpal Sophie, Isobel for giving me advice about university, Jessica who I had the nicest chat over coffee with, and Natalie, who although we still haven't met despite being at the same university for nearly a year, thank you for all the advice and support you gave me before I arrived. These are just a few people who have helped me in some way, but I'm sure the years to come will bring more friendships, more posts and more fun. Blogging for me was always, and will always be a hobby and not a job, or a way to earn money. It's a way to express my self in a creative way, and talk about one of my loves in the form of makeup. I feel like I've changed so much over the past 4 years of blogging, which has seen the completion of my GCSE's, then A-Levels and now my journey through my first year of university. I'd like to think my photography skills have improved, and my writing style is now embracing who as I am as a person. I hope you've enjoyed reading my blog, whether you've been here from the start, or only in the past few weeks. Thank you to every single person, to know that someone out there wants to read my rambley posts is incredibly humbling. I send a million hugs to each and every one of you. 

Happy Birthday Beauty Babbles, here's to many more years to come!
