My blog turns 5 today!

Wow, my blog is now five years old! Can you believe it? I almost can't.

I've been tweaking my layout for a while now but I've decided to officially 'announce' the new look, today. With my blog's new look, there is a new focus (well, sort of). I guess it's been more of a slow transition than an abrupt change, but that's because that's how life goes. I've even finally redone my about me page! Huzzah.

Leaving everything until the last minute, as is my usual fashion, I don't have much planned for this post but I thought it'd be fun to take a look at my first ever outfit posted on here, compared to the most recent. Oh, and you can use the code HAPPY5 to get 25% off of everything in my etsy shop until the 19th.

The outfit and the post that started it all: A Wink and a Smile. Aw.

Coincidentally, my most recent outfit also features a black pencil skirt (well the first was a dress but the similarities are still there).

I was going to do a list of my favourite posts and my most popular ones but, well, as I mentioned I left this 'til the last minute. My top post (in terms of hits) is my 'How I made my Rockford Peach costume' post, which is awesome. I know I get a lot of hits from people looking how to make one - I just hope my post is helpful. That costume is still one of my proudest moments.

Thinking about it, I'm not sure I could rank my favourite posts, anyway. I always loved my Silver Screen Sundays - they were fun! Going back through my archives, I'm finding outfits I forgot about and some I'd rather not remember. But that's what I love about documenting (even a small portion of) my life, online, in this way. Anyway, enough navel-gazing. Thank-you to everyone who has ever supported my blog - maybe next year I'll do something to celebrate properly.

Oh, as well as a new layout, I finally have a Facebook page. Let's hope I remember to use it. And while I'm plugging, my friend and I started a new project: Vicious Peril! Check it out if you like.
