In a world that's constantly evolving and growing, staying on top of things is an achievement in itself; I've definitely worked my wobbly backside off to get where I am today and am proud of everything I've managed to achieve. My original designs were horrendous and my photography wasn't much better; over the years I've honed my craft and am now proud to put my name to the content and ideas on this site. I've learned a huge amount, from HTML coding and photo editing, to managing multiple social platforms and marketing myself to brands, but the best thing about running LBQ is you guys. Every comment, every tweet, every email from a reader thanking me for advice that's really made a difference makes it all worthwhile - every late night writing session, every weekend spent catching up on emails and every early morning photography session to catch the sunshine while it lasted. Every moment of panic about where the next month's rent is coming from, every case of bloggers block and every fraction of self-doubt that makes me wonder how I've managed to blag it for five years. This site makes me happy and it makes me proud.
Without you guys there would be no LBQ, which is why I want to celebrate with you all week long. Across my social media channels there will be oodles of competitions, giveaways and opportunities to get in the party spirit - so make sure you're following me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for daily opportunities to win. There will also be some reflective posts and lots of reasons to come back, so make sure you don't miss out! To kick things off I'm giving away a bumper pack of beauty goodies featuring some of my favourite brands and worth over £200. The amazing goodie bag has been put together by yours truly and includes Clinique, L'Occitane, Chloe, Elizabeth Arden, Clarins, Topshop, Rimmel, Balance Me, Sew Lomax, The Library of Fragrance, Stylfile, No7 and lots of new brands for you to discover. For your chance to win, just enter via the widget below. On a final note, I just wanted to say thank you. Thanks for your support, your clicks, your comments, your retweets, your likes, your shares, your feedback and your unwavering passion for beauty.
Without you, there would be no me. Here's to another five years of LBQ...
