*CLOSED* 6 months blogiversary! Thoughts, goals + YSL lipstick giveaway (international)!


Today is a very special day - Shoes and Glitter is celebrating its first six months blogiversary! I honestly can't believe how time flies... When I created this blog in September last year, I didn't expect myself to stick to it for more than a couple of months. However, blogging quickly became something I'd look forward to doing every day - something that makes me feel happy and fulfilled. It's helped me fill that empty void I had in my life, which stemmed from having very few hobbies and a pretty miserable job. Throughout my blogging journey, I've met so many wonderful people, and made a few good friends. Although it's only been six months, I can already say that blogging has been one of the best experiences in my life, and I hope for it to continue for many years to come!

I've been thinking about setting some blogging goals for the next few months. I would like to expand my reader base, of course; continue all of the existing blog series and introduce a couple of new ones. I'm also considering starting a YouTube channel this year, although I'd need to invest in some proper equipment first, and get over how much I hate the sound of my own voice on camera! Whatever happens, I hope that the next few months are just as good as the first six have been. I would like to thank you all for reading my blog, for always stopping by and sharing your thoughts - it honestly means the world to me! 


GIVEAWAY! 
As a celebration of Shoes and Glitter's six months blogiversary, I'm giving away this Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy lipstick in Luscious Cherry. YSL describe this as a 'lipstick that thinks it's a lip balm'. It's incredibly lightweight and moisturizing; giving the lips a lovely, subtle shine. The Luscious Cherry shade is a bright red with pink undertones, which will be perfect for the upcoming spring months. 

A FEW RULES... 
 The giveaway will run from 29th February 2016 to 15th March 2016. The winner will be announced the following day on my blog.
 You must be at least eighteen years old, or have your parents' permission to enter. 
 I will contact the winner straight after announcing the results. The winner must respond within 48 hours, or they will lose the prize, and a new winner will be selected.
 Any 'follow to unfollow' entries will be automatically disqualified.
 This is a worldwide giveaway. However, please note that depending on your country, you may incur customs charges. That payment would be at your discretion, and failure to do so will result in you losing the prize. 

HOW TO ENTER?
You can enter the giveaway using the Rafflecopter widget below. All you need to do is follow me on bloglovin', and leave a comment in this post answering the following question:

What do you think makes a successful blog? Is it the amount of followers, originality of the content or maybe the blogger's personality? What are you looking for in a beauty blog? 

For additional chances to win, you can also follow me on Twitter and Google Friends Connect. This is completely optional, but will give you extra entries. 

Good luck, darlings!
