And it has been... in so many ways.
It's expanded my writing, expanded my horizons in terms of what I like to write about, and has helped my career. I got my first "real" internship from using my blog, which introduced me to my mentor, who got me my first job out of college.
It's funny how things turn out, isn't it?
This blog has made me realize what I love... beauty, writing, giving people advice. It's made me realize I'd be very happy being a freelance writer/blogger and that ultimately, that is my goal.
I am so beyond grateful for my readers, my friends who make fun of me for being 'on the blog' but ultimately support me 100%.
Royally Pink started out as something fun to do on the side, to help my career, but it's been the one constant for the past 4 years. It's been with me throughout my last years at college, graduation, my first horrible year of post grad, and some of the toughest & happiest times of my life.
None of this would be possible without people who read, subscribe, and comment along the way. I may not be the biggest blogger but I'm very grateful that I've come this far.
I have a long way to go but it's been an exciting journey so far, and I hope to continue forever.
To celebrate YOU and Royally Pink, I want to give away some of my favorite things: BEAUTY PRODUCTS. I've been hoarding both bags of skincare, haircare, and makeup for months and just filling them up as I went.
Feel free to join BOTH giveaways or just one.
Thank you everyone! Royally Pink would NOT be possible without you. Cheers to another four years :)
