[ENDED] It's My Blogs Fifth Birthday! | Giveaway

YIPPEE! My blog is five years old today!


Five Years Ago, Where It All Started.


Well, lets flashback to 26th August 2013 when I first decided to set up my blog. It was a warm summers' holiday break from college. I was struggling to find a summer job and to be honest, I was incredibly bored! Me and Katrina both decided to start our blogs at the same time; with a little inspiration from our favourite beauty vloggers, FleurDeForce and Zoella. I was very beauty oriented at the time, my first post was a 'What's in my Makeup Bag' post and well, yeah. Lets' not say any more! I can't believe that it is my blogs' fifth birthday!

I continued to blog throughout the second year of college, I loved makeup and beauty and my confidence flourished. It was an amazing time for me! I started to slack a little when I started studying at University though, as you may have read from my other posts. This was when my anxiety really took a hold of me, and this is why its' so important to look after your mental health at university. It's absolutely crazy to look back at myself five years ago and compare to now. I've been through a house fire, been taken for granted, felt lonely and yet here I am, better than ever! Happy fifth birthday to my blog, eh!

The Rebirth of Chloe Elizabeth.


When I finished my degree, I decided that I'd put my spare time to good use and start blogging again. Oh, what a fantastic decision it was! I've really started a fresh with my blog, focusing on my new interests, fashion, lifestyle and mental health to name a few. Theres' no strict criteria, and that is what I absolutely love about my blog now.

Since starting my blog again I've made so many friends and had so many wonderful opportunities. Whats' even better, is that I've spent so many hours dedicating my spare time into something I'm passionate about instead of watching Netflix! Although, sometimes I'll try and do both at the same time. Because, yanno. Netflix. But yes, I am so grateful to every single person who had supported me and viewed my blog, whether it was yesterday or five years ago. There has been many hurdles along the way and I'm sure I wouldn't be here without the support of others!

To celebrate the rebirth of my blog and the fact that it's my blog's fifth birthday; I've decided that I'll be running a little giveaway to celebrate! I'll be giving away:


  • 'Into the Heart of Mindfulness' by Ed Halliwell

  • 'Too Glam to Give a Damn' notebook

  • Henry Holland 'La Croix' False Nails

How do you enter, I hear you ask? All you need to do is RT the tweet below [NOW ENDED] and make sure you're following me on twitter. Unfortunately this giveaway is open to the UK Only although I do plan on hosting more giveaways, so stay tuned!

  17. Oh my gosh five years?! Huge congratulations to you! I don't think I've ever stuck to a hobby that long other than singing (which I'm conveniently on a bit of a break from right now...). I've only just hit one year on my blog so I really take my hat off to you for keeping this up for so long! It can be so stressful but it's so worth it, isn't it? I'm excited to follow your journey in the coming years and what a lovely giveaway, too!
