Today is a cause for celebration. Why? Because, it's my blog's birthday! *throws confetti* It seems like it was just yesterday when I wrote up my first post. Now, 103 entries later, here I am :)
I first started this blog as a way to keep a positive attitude about all things big and small. Exotic and plain. Creative and exciting. My thought process was, if I focused all my energies on things that I love, it would make my life so much brighter. Everyone should focus on the things that make them happy and live everyday like it's their birthday. That's the mantra I try to live by ⎯hence, BALM (Birthday á la Mode) was born!
I'll admit that I never thought anyone would be remotely interested in what I had to say, but, I'm happy to see that my readers enjoy what I write and actually interact and send me emails. For that, I would like to say THANK YOU!
Keeping up with good spirits and positive energy, I would like to show my appreciation to all you lovely readers out there. I am hosting my first BALM giveaway! The lovely prize is a $50 gift certificate to one of my favorite (cause that's what it's about) stores: Sephora. To enter to win, you all need to do just TWO things:
1. FOLLOW (if you're not already) the blog. You can do that by clicking the "follow" button on the right hand side of the homepage. You may have to scroll down a bit to find it. 2. FILL OUT THIS FORM. It's quick (7 easy questions), painless and pretty self-explanatory. Just in case though, instructions can be found at the top of the page. Giveaway entry ends one week from today. I will select (at random) and announce the winner on Fri, 8/19!
That's it! So, to everyone GOOD LUCK and THANK YOU again! Can't wait to see what the next year holds :)
I consider myself a chic girl who celebrates the little things. I'm obsessed with shoes, books, fashion, traveling, music and photography.
I see magic in champagne, cupcakes, ladybugs and freckles.
I believe that most of life's disappointments can be cured with a great cup of tea and delicious novel. Laughter is my best friend. Pretty things make my heart skip a beat.
I'm a wife, daughter, sister and friend. But most importantly, I try to live everyday like it's my birthday.
Welcome to Birthday à la Mode :)
