All That Shimmers turns 2

6 June 2016
So, I started All That Shimmers 2 years ago back in June 2014. The first year I was really into my blogging,  I posted regularly and was really enthusiastic about my online content. I was amazed at how quickly my blog gained attention, and even more stunned when I received my first PR product to review. I felt unstoppable. My blog was my life and I was so proud to call it mine.

But this past year, that changed. It has been a while since I've written on here regularly. Not really sure I could class myself as a blogger at this moment in time. My bio even still said I was 20, I'm now 21 (yay for getting old!)

If you are close to me, you will know the one thing I strive myself on is honesty, no matter how harsh the truth may be, and I'm not going to exclude my blog from that moral; I know that this sounds cliche and an easy excuse, but I simply weren't in the best of places a year ago. Which led me to make some bad decisions, that eventually cost me my relationship with a guy who I once called my best friend. 

It took me a while to forgive myself for the choices I had made, and for breaking up with my boyfriend when he had done nothing wrong. But that dark period is completely over and I am the happiest I have been in a while, I am finally myself again. Lessons have been learnt and I've done a lot of growing up.

I know this is all a bit deep for a beauty blog, but I feel like I couldn't just disappear off this space which was once thriving with readers to return with zero explanation.

But now I've gotten the deep stuff out the way. I am returning to my blog as I am definitely in the place where I'm feeling passionate about writing and all things beauty again. I will be posting about make up again from tomorrow! 

I hope my disappearing act didn't lose too many of you guys, but sometimes it's good for the soul to have a break... Mine was just longer than anticipated.
