Hello loves,

As you all know, I love blogging. I feel like it gives me the opportunity to inspire or help people with the many thoughts that run wild in my head. Although I never thought this would be possible, it has an enduring satisfaction I can’t begin to explain. Little did I know that it wouldn’t end there; in the past few weeks I have realized that there is so much more to it, especially meeting new people.

When Annie from Unlavish style approached me for a guest post, I was thrilled! I have been following her for the longest time now, and getting noticed by her meant the world to me. What I love about her is her super relatable way of writing – when I read her posts I’m always like “omg I know right!?”. I was even more excited when I got the chance to meet her personally at a Bloggerang event organized by her, where she shared a bunch of tips on Snapchat and Instagram. Speaking of which, I finally have a Snapchat account for my blog, so make sure you add me @therealdamsel (shoutout to Annie for inspiring me <3)

When I met her, I told myself that I want to be a blogger like that; someone who is the exact same person in real life as she appears in her posts. It’s not as easy as it might look, but I’m working on it! I’m so glad that I got the chance to work with someone who has the same beliefs as me when it comes to blogging!

Also, as usual – all thanks to Kevin’s Photography for the amazing shots! People are constantly asking me who does most of my shoots, so here you go loves. Oh, and there’s a new makeup artist in town! She did my makeup for this shoot and encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone, and is also the sweetest person you’ll meet! Make sure you check them both out and spread the love <3
