A Big Thank You

3 January 2016

Hello and welcome to the first post of 2016! I actually had a completely different post written for today but I think this is much more relevant and it's nice to be able to start the new year with a very happy and positive post.

Social media has gotten itself a pretty bad name in recent years, and as a blogger putting myself out there on the internet, I don't expect it to be all rainbows and puppy dogs. However, today's post isn't going to be about the negative side of social media, it's going to be about a positive, very lovely side of it, and I'm happy that I am able to write it.


One of the main things that inspired me to write this post is the Instagram picture above. I posted this photo before going to dinner with my other half for our anniversary, and when I returned home I was blown away by the amazingly kind words that fellow bloggers and followers had commented. Now of course, life isn't all about how you look and that is what they were commenting on, but the fact that people who barely know me would take the time to say such lovely things warms my heart. Instagram isn't alone in the social media loveliness. All the time on Snapchat I get messages from people telling me they love my blog, or a post I've written really helped them, or my hair looked nice on a certain day, and although these may be small things, altogether they mean a huge deal to me.  

Thinking back on the past year, my blogs first proper year, I also want to reflect on blogging and my experience. When I first started Penneys To Prada, I feared that the blogging community would be slightly 'bitchy' or close knit and hard to get into. However I'm happy to say I couldn't have been more wrong. In the past year I've met so many lovely and more importantly supportive women through blogging. It could be very easy for us to only think about ourselves and our own blog's success, but everywhere you look, whether it be on Instagram or Facebook, there's someone supporting another's blog, which is really nice to see and experience. There are quite a few fellow bloggers who I chat to regularly and would definitely consider friends, another positive side effect of blogging.

I'd like to finish off this post by saying the biggest thank you to each and everyone of you who read my blog and follow me on my various social media platforms. I've said it before, and I'll definitely say it again, the support I've received in the last year for Penneys To Prada has been completely mind blowing to me, and I am eternally grateful that for some reason so many of you are interested in this girl and her love for fashion and beauty!

With that being said, I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2016 and thank you for reading this post!
