One Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway Winners!



Hooray, my Blog is one year old today! I cannot believe how fast everything is going. I thought it would be a fun idea to give you some stats on how my blog has developed on one year and of course, announce the winners of my Birthday and One Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway.


In one year, I Published 108 Blog Posts, got a total of 937 Comments and reached ~12.000 Unique Views per month. I always read all of the comments, in older or my newer posts, it doesn’t matter. If you have questions, I will always try to respond because I really appreciate everyone commenting.


USA Haul

My favorite blog post is my USA Make-up Haul, because it reminds me of the time I was there. It was my first time in the USA and I was lucky enough to travel there (in Business Class!) for work. I will never forget how fun it was and how fortunate I am.



My most viewed blog post is MAC Faux, Mehr and Please Me. I never ever thought that this post would become my most viewed blog post. Apparently, a lot of people are looking for nude MAC lipstick comparisons so there are still around 80 views per day and 14000 unique views since the existence of this blog post, so keep that in mind if you’re a blogging yourself and want to get more views via Google search, people love comparisons! 🙂


  Anastasia Beverly Hills - American Doll  Artdeco Artic Beauty Makeup Look

I changed my hair color four times. I started with a black/turqiouse ombre, then grey hair, which I had most of the year. Then I changed back to my original hair color, black and got hair extensions and finally, I switch the post up with my own hair and my black and blue ombre clip-in hair extensions.


Liquid Lipstick Haul - Jeffree Star

Most of my blog posts are (liquid) lipstick reviews.  I can’t get enough of lipsticks, especially liquid lipsticks and that will probably not change in the future. I still have so many to review but due to other priorities like limited edition collection reviews but since my giveaway is ending, I have more time to do these type of reviews.

I have held Nine Giveaways in total, six of them are in the One Year Blog Anniversary giveaway. The other prizes were the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Zero, the Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch and the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. I’m planning to do much more of them because I love making you guys happy.

In the future, I’m planning to continue doing (random) YouTube Videos and try to be more creative with looks and develop in editing for better pictures, especially for Instagram. I’m also trying to get more followers on social media, I love to show my personal life on Snapchat with you all and I hope that you think my snaps are fun to watch!

I will continue to do two blogposts per week. I still have so many things to show you so for now, I’m trying to do three per week but with a fulltime job and having two chronic diseases, it’s difficult to keep this up.

Congrats to all winners! I will contact you by email this weekend for your addresses.

Thanks to all my viewers for joining this giveaway. I really cannot thank you enough for visiting my blog, if it’s daily, weekly or even passing by, I appreciate all of you. You are the reason why blogging is so much fun. I love the interaction with my readers. I have a lot of fellow bloggers reading my blog posts and trust me, even though I suck at commenting back on other blogs (trust me, I have the same issues in my personal life too, people who write to me on WhatsApp probably hate me), I read them with much love. Again, I really can’t thank you enough for making this an awesome year, and I hope there are many more to come.

I hope you all will stick around in the coming year and I will definitely try to keep you all happy and create posts with much love and effort.

      Volgens mij ben je wel een winnaar hoor. 😉 Klopt het dat je met een andere mail hebt meegedaan dan de mail die je hebt gebruikt in de comments? De Rafflecopter Widget geeft alleen geen achternamen weer ivm privacy redenen. Ik kan ze wel zien maar ik weet niet of de winnaressen daar blij mee zijn dus ik heb ze er expres niet bij gezet. Ik stuur pas vanaf het weekend een mailtje omdat ik nu geen tijd hebt maar als het goed is zie je die wel ergens op zaterdag hoor!
