Seeing Spots is 2!

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy Birthday Dear Seeing Spots Happy Birthday to you!!!

It's hard for me to really confirm when the true anniversary of seeing spots is as I was blogging under my old She's Electric blog for a while from around July and then moved over to a new account 25th November 2012 but still under She's Electric then I think it was a couple of months later I became Seeing Spots. I decided to go by the date I first posted on this account. Makes it easier for me that way.

I can't believe how things have changed in the last two years. I've met so many wonderful people, my self confidence has grown so much, I've been to some truly fantastic events and made some amazing friendships.

The first ever post was one transferred from my Old blog
AF Bloggers Challenge 

I've been on Shopping trips to Doncaster

 met up with local beauty bloggers and Manchester Bloggers

I've also been to a few clothes swaps, The first swap

Plus North 2013

I went on a swimming trip in Barnsley and out for food and cocktails  afterwards

I attended the Big Boogie Prom organised by Rebs, it was a small prom but I got to spend lots of quality time with some of my favourite people

I've also taken part in two Book Swaps organised by Beth and I now take part in a twitter book club

I've also been to a few events run by PR's for various companies. I will try and come back to link to some of these.

I started this blog as a hangover to a weight loss blog that wasn't really going very well. I was gaining weight and wasn't very motivated but essentially I used to take OOTD weekly and compare them for weight change. But rather than discuss what I was wearing I mentioned my weight. When I discovered Plus Size blogs It really inspired me. I hid all the weight related posts and did fashion posts. I also talked about things I'd bought and places I went.

I then found the confidence to go to a clothes swap event in Leeds. I didn't take anything but was welcomed and I even took a couple of things. (I still feel guilty about this even though i've been to subsequent ones and taken far far more than I've taken back)

I've made some amazing friends and while we don't see a lot of each other we have a really good time when we do.

My blog has evolved and I feel like I don't want to label my blog as fashion/ beauty / lifestyle it's a bit of everything

I had planned to spend loads of time on this post and try and do a full highlights but life has got in the way and that might be one of the biggest lessons I've learned. Planning and scheduling for me are key but if life gets in the way sometimes you have to let it.

I've had an amazing two years on this blog and I'm hoping 2015 will bring many more surprises and opportunities.

I have a few things planned in for the coming weeks Including some events and I've got more beauty boxes to tell you about.

I'm also going to be meeting up with some of the other plus size bloggers on a shopping trip in December and Christmas is just round the corner.

I want to publish this how it is but I'm going to try and come back to it and expand on my two years. - 28/11/14 I've updated it a bit. I still have more to say so will try and come back again.
