Here I am with my 100th post.
When I started this blog back in early February, I had no idea the journey it would take me on. "I know, right?" started out kind of shaky, kind of emo. It was such a horrible month that it was almost impossible for me to pretend to be happy. But somewhere in the spring, I changed.
I know it's sounds corny, but in a way this blog changed my life. It gave me something to look forward to and introduced me to some amazing friends (YOU) who have really made my life a lot happier. Plus, it forced me to look at my life. After all, I was writing about it. Having this perspective of seeing my feelings, emotions, and life on screen has kind of put things in a very different perspective for me. I see more positive now than ever before. I see more hope. And I see that I can tend to be a drama queen sometimes, and that makes me laugh instead of cry.
Obviously my life still has a lot of kinks I need to smooth out. But it's easier to work on them with all the support I have from you all. Reading the comments in my post below made me cry (in a happy way!). I feel so lucky to have such sweet and considerate friends online. You are all so beautiful and smart. I look up to each and every one of you. You inspire me every single day when I read your blogs. Thank you.
I have never done a giveaway before and I thought this anniversary would be the perfect time for my first. One of my mom's hobbies is to make dragonfly necklaces. She taught me how. I'm not going to lie, it's freaking hard! Haha. But I managed to make one that I think came out really pretty. It is made out of swarovski crystal beads and I made it out of neutral colors (brown, black, beige) so it could go with lots of outfits.
(Sorry about the horrid photo. I am obviously NOT a photographer! Lol.)
If you would like to win this necklace, all you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment. The winner will be chosen at random.
This contest is open to everyone, all over the world. (It always makes me sad when I see giveaways for U.S. residents only. Plus, this necklace is small and I saved up money for international shipping if need be).
The contest ends in one week.
Good luck to everyone!
