My 50th post on the blog - What blogging gave me.... :)

by Tarry 

Yippie... It's celebration time.... yes guys! This is the 50th post on my blog... Rather, on my lifestyle blog. I am so happy.. 

Wanted to make this post special. And over the last one week, have been thinking of how to do it. So, finally I decided to do a tag post asking my fellow bloggers to share their thoughts on what blogging gave me. 

Am tagging beautiful Vipra from Forever Magnifico... http://www.forevermagnifico.com, the lovely Lisha from Hearts Bows Makeup... http://www.heartbowsmakeup.com, Aditi from Chicorita http://chicorita.com/ and infact, anyone who wants to share their happiness with me...

So first of all my lovelies, I want to thank all of you who loved me, supported me, encouraged me and helped in letting my lifestyle blog travel 50 significant miles :-)




But this thank you would seem a little incomplete without taking a few names. I started beauty blogging in 2011, when on the personal front, my life was going through a tough time. Having come out of a traumatic relationship and very bad times, I will still trying to pick up a few pieces of my life. Lot of so-called friends had parted ways and some old ones had come back. But still, it was tough for me and then, started surfing the net for something interesting. It is here I stepped upon a lovely beauty blog called Indian Makeup and Beauty Blog (IMBB). I slowly got hooked to it and it became that friend for me, who used to advice me on products before I bought them. 

One fine day, I saw the IMBB was looking for people who could write for them. So thinking of exploring something new, I approached the lovely Rati Tehri Singh of IMBB  http://makeupandbeauty.com/ and my first review... a blog review was published. It got so much of love and appreciation from a lot of readers and fellow bloggers. And Rati herself appreciated it. 

For me, this was a new found, much needed dose of confidence. I slowly started writing more on things which I had used, loved and thought of sharing. And the encouraging comments were slowly adding up to my confidence. I also got a chance to participate in some interesting contests where I realised that it was not important to be perfect, it was more about being yourself. More appreciations and more happiness. So, a big Thank You to Rati and IMBB :) 




From the past two years, my journey of blogging has been really lovely. From beauty to what my heart feels, i have written on loads of stuff. Did my very first lipstick review and a lipswatch on one of my favourite blogs, Everything that matters, by the very pretty girl, Jyotirupa Mishra. I remember I was so nervous doing the review for MAC Charmed I'm sure because ETM has some of the best lip swatches... but I managed to do it and got compliments too...  I am completely hooked to it and Jyo is like this friend who will never falter to praise me. Thank You So much Jyotirupa Mishra. 

I really don't want to miss out of anyone from this post whom I want to thank. The very pretty Samyukta Suma Sharma of http://www.isimplylovemakeup.com/, with whom I feel like a soul sister and she makes the cutest videos... :-) and I simply love her blog (that really rhymes with her blog's name), my dear Lisshiii from hearts bows makeup, the MAC Maharani Agnirupa Acharrya, the lovely Nids Gautam, my new found friend Apurva Saxena of Kalapallette, the serene Ankita Dhawan Bhatia, the super sexy Vipra Patil of Forever Magnifico and so many more... if i missed out some names, I apologise but trust me guys, each one of you is so special for me... 

I don't want to bore you all. Just wanted to say thank you to all of you who made me a part of your lives and became an integral part of mine...

THANK YOU ALL my lovelies... :-)

  12. Thanks Lishiiiii....
    For me, the broken relationship was a divorce (legally, marriage being declared as null and void) and broken dreams. But blogging gave me so much more to cherish. It also brought out the happy-go-lucky person in me again...
    true, will surely be friends with u for life... u r indeed my BFF...
