One year anniversary for blogging!

On May 21st 2013 I started my blog Curls and Comets. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone and I have learnt so much about blogging. I have to admit it hasn't been easy and at times I have felt extremely negative about my blog and considered deleting it but I have stuck it out. I'm trying to reinvent my blog at the moment and after taking my GCSE's (only four more to go as I have done eleven now!) I will be up and running again. I can't believe in the space of a year a combination of over 300 people follow and read my blog! Which is crazy to me when you first start you don't expect one follower let alone 300!

I think people can underestimate how much work is put into creating a blog, updating it and getting it out there. It's not so easy just to gain 500 followers! I am so happy I started blogging and have learnt a lot about make up and clothes and I would recommend anyone to do it! I can't wait to see how my blog grows in the next year as I start college and learn to drive! (things are moving so fast!) Thank you for reading my blog, leaving lovely comments and always being there for a chat. I love the blogging community and am happy to be apart of it.

pastels- spring ready!

Spring is officially here which means its closer to Summer (and sun and all things hot!) I thought I would show you some nail polish picks for Spring which are my personal favourites. I love nail polishes as they can brighten up an outfit and make you look alot more tanned than you actually are. I have built up a list of my spring nail picks, items that I love. (L-R Essie- Mint Candy Apple, Barry M- Lychee, Models Own- Blueberry Muffin, Essie- Bikini so Teeny)

thinking pink- beauty buys


I think there is some sort of theme going on here? I love pink make up products: pink eyeshadows, pink blushers, pink lipsticks and the list goes on. Why do I like pinks so much? Well not only are they the most flattering, they also suit me the most (or that I'm scared of reds and purples!) I can't tell you how long I've wanted a YSL lipstick! They are beautiful, luxurious and classy. The only thing is that they are quite very expensive. I think I might regret this purchase for a little...
I also wanted to pick up something from NYX seeing as the closest one is an hour and a half away. I picked up the shade 'Angel' which is compared to the Estee Lauder blush in Tease which came out last Summer (I really regret not getting my hands on that)

(I'm trying a new theme, what do you think? I would love your opinions, I am trying to find a niche as I am simply not happy with my blog at the moment! Which is half the reason why I haven't been uploading- apart from Exams of course)
Thank you for reading,
