Exactly a year ago, I posted my first blog post… and so My Style Stories is officially 1 year old today! Yey! I can’t believe it’s been a year already; it has been very challenging on my behalf juggling family life, work and sorting out my blog. It means so much to me that I put so much time, effort and thought into each post.
My passion and inspiration started from giving back love to preloved items, looking for goodness out of the final reduction sale piles and visiting local charity shops for amazing finds and vintage pieces. I buy the must have prints or colours of the season to pair it with my old items to make it look current, putting all my preloved and vintage items together to create the look that I wanted, maximizing my wardrobe by mix and matching- swapping and changing clothing and accessories for both day and night look (and breath)… and nothing wrong buying classic and timeless designer pieces once in a while. I thought I’d share my style stories here hoping to inspire and continued to be inspired too.
Below are my compilations of my outfits for the whole year, and of course, my humble anniversary Giveaway.
I’ve also shared on my blog places where I’ve been and new experiences and events that I’ve been to, whether with my family and friends or venturing on my own. Places that you might want to visit one day or experiences that you might want to consider trying.
Being shortlisted out of 43,000 blogs at the Cosmo Blog Awards 2013 as Newcomer Blog, was one of the amazing things that ever happened to me. Being recognised on something that you’re passionate about was incredible, it just never happened to someone like me and I am very grateful indeed!
As promised in my previous post that I will be doing a giveaway this month, together with my blog’s 1st anniversary as my way of saying Thank You! So without further ado, here are the items up for grabs!
One will win this elegant NEXT necklace, as I’d promised on my previous post (that I will be sharing one item from the Cosmo Blog Awards goodie bag), plus a £25.00 High Street Voucher of your choice to buy a dress- since Christmas parties are a month away!
One will received a jar of assorted sweets from The Oldest Sweet Shop in England. Yep! The official World Guinness record holder as the oldest sweet shop in the world.
One will own this tangerine shift dress. The dress is very special to me, only worn it once at the Cosmo Blog Awards. So even if you weren’t there, sharing this dress would mean sharing that awesome experience too! (Fits UK size 8-10)
To WIN, simply leave a COMMENT below on why I should pick you to win the item of your choice.
This giveaway is open to all MSS readers and followers both new and old- worldwide! Winners will be announced at the end of this month. For any inquiries about the giveaway, please leave me a comment below.
All the best and Goodluck!
Lots of love,
