This time last year I made the decision to restart this ol' blog of mine - give it a completely new lease of life and combine my interests of fashion, beauty and lifestyle all into one little place on the Internet. And low and behold Halcyon Velvet was reborn and with it now having so many followers (not just here, all across my social media channels) I thought I would just do this little post to say A BIG, FAT THANK YOU to everyone liking what I've been doing so far. Some of you may know my 2014 didn't get off to the best of starts and that's when I knew I needed a hobby to take my mind of things and escape from reality for a while (so much corniness, feel free to vom). Yes, HV is still just a hobby, I don't make any money from it and only work with a few brands - I toyed with the idea of it becoming my career and realised it wasn't the path I wanted for it. I'm keeping it to myself, as it were.

So let's get away from the sentimental mushiness for a moment and just talk a little about this beaut of a dress. I posted it on my Instagram a couple of days ago and said I felt like Florence Welch (Florence & The Machine) - if only I LOOKED like her too, but you guys all seemed to like it and, of course it comes from one of my favourite online stores ASOS.

As I (hopefully) continue with blogging I like to think I will gain more and more in maturity as I a) get older and b) improve my writing month by month. I studied journalism at University so spelling and grammar are the things I absolutely try and get right for my readers, nothing worse to me than reading a blog post and picking out all the grammatical errors! With that, I hope my personality still shines through. As someone who is incredibly sarcastic with a  'tongue in cheek' sort of demeanour I really hope it comes across within my writing - I don't want to be another Zoella/ Tanya Burr (I ain't gonna get that huge anyway, let's be honest) I just want to stick to what I like and know and hopefully gain some followers and readers along the way who are going to enjoy my journey with me.

So, like I said before this post was just a huge thank you to all you guys who follow me here, there and everywhere and enjoy what I ramble on about. Love to you all!!

  12. Happy blogiversary! Great pics; loving the balloon! And your dress is gorgeous by the way. In other news, I think it's great that you write from the heart and put your personality into your words; it really comes across and is so refreshing to read. And I really think that enthusiasm just for the genuine love of doing it, rather than making money or anything like that, really does jump off the page and makes your work so genuine. Here's to year 2! x

  14. Congrats! I love your 70's style too! I know what you mean, writing is my best skill (photography and html not so much!) and I try to get spelling and all that, up to scratch too!
