A Little Achievement and a Couple of Thank-Yous

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope 2016 is an amazing one for each and everyone of you! What I really wish for you (and me!) is to be able to do more of the things you like and to achieve at least one important goal or lifelong dream.

2015 was a pretty good one for me: I quit a job that was making me miserable and had the luxury of focusing on myself and what I truly enjoy doing.

2015 was the year I finally started my own blog, an experience that has given me even more than I thought it would. I’ve always loved writing as much as I’ve always loved makeup, so I’ve been really enjoying putting these two things together in my little personal space.

But the thing I like the most about this blog is that it’s given me the chance to meet so many smart, talented, hard-working women from all over the world. Thank you all for being such an amazing, supportive community. I love reading your posts, as well as your comments on mine… I feel like I’m getting to know you a little better day by day.

Today is Carol in a Page 6-month anniversary. I remember I once read somewhere that only 10% of blogs make it past the 6-month mark and, although I’m not entirely sure this was based on any real data, I still think that this little achievement deserves some sort of celebration… I’ll think of you while I sip on a glass of Prosecco tonight! 😉

    I would drink some bubbly on your blog anniversary too if it wasn’t for obvious reasons impossible. I am glad you made it, I am glad I have had the chance to meet you online, and I hope you and the blog will be around for a long time to come!

    Congrats Carol…How bold of you to Quit your job for your passion..I wish i had those guts too…But I am also so happy that i finally opened my blog in 2015 , started writing what i was passionate about and got a chance to interact with smart women like you from different parts of the world..Globally the world thinks that beauty is a waste of time and girls who are into makeup have no brain but women like Pixiwoo sisters, Huda beauty, Bobby brown, temptalia and so on have proved that we girls can become huge enterprenuers with something that they thought is a sheer waste of time :):) kudos to the bloggers world 🙂

    Wow, I honestly can’t believe that you’ve only been blogging for six months? Your blog is so professional and you are BRILLIANT at it, I would have assumed that you’ve been doing it for at least a few years! You have achieved so much in those six months, dear, it’s truly inspiring! 🙂 Wishing you all the best for the new year. <3

    Congratulations on hitting the 6 months mark! I know there are many bloggers who quit within a few months, I don’t think people realized how time consuming blogging can be and some quit because the lack of support. I’m glad that you’ve made it this far and I hope, wish you blog will be around for years to come!

    Congratulations Carol! I’m reading this so late, I know, but it’s been impossible to keep my blog life up to date lately. I’m really happy you have been through the blogosphere for already half a year, I think my six months anniversary will be soon too haha.
    I hope you continue doing such amazing and interesting posts and that you stay as you are, ’cause you’re gorgeous.
    I hope you have a great day! xx
