If you follow me on Twitter, you might (you most like do – sorry about that) know it’s my 19th birthday today (yay!). Which is crazy, I feel like I only turned 18 a few months ago. Apparently not, though. I’m spending the day how birthday’s should be spent, with my family and friends (I say confidently, when in reality I’m writing this 4 days before and have absolutely no idea what we’re actually going to do….. POSITIVE THINKING, PEOPLE!)
Also, September is the month I move to uni. I go in just under three weeks, which is equal parts exciting and terrifying. I’ve still not 100% come to terms with the fact that me and my friends are leaving our little patch of Surrey and heading off in vastly different directions to live in completely different cities. I’m going to Southampton, they’re going to Bournemouth and Warwick and Portsmouth and Liverpool and Exeter and other places I’ve forgotten . . .
Because it’s my birthday, and because I’ve got a pretty major life changing event on the horizon, I thought I’d give myself a little blogging break today. However, I did have a few blogging goals I wanted to reach by the time I turned 19, and I’m happy to say I reached them all!
- I got to 1k followers on Twitter
- I got to 300 Instagram followers
- And 200 followers on Bloglovin’ on my profile page. Although my actual blog page only has 195, but I’m giving myself this one anyway! (Can Bloglovin’ sort out this weird double profile/two sets of followers business, please?!)
Thank you all so much for following, reading and supporting my blog; it honestly means the world to me. Every time I reach one of my mini milestones it makes me so ridiculously happy! (Everyone always says it’s not all about the numbers, but let’s be real here, sometimes it is). It’s also just under 2 months until Peppermint and Panda Eyes’ 1st birthday, and I’m so amazed at how far my blog has come in just one year. I’m planning a little giveaway for 29th October to celebrate! Watch this space.
Thanks again, my little peppermints and pandas. Birthday hugs all round!
