On Saturday (10th January) this little blog had a birthday, VIPXO turned  f i v e   y e a r s  old. When I think back to that very snowy day back in Leeds, in a house i shared with 4 other girls, i never thought in a million years that 5 years later i'd still be writing on this corner of the internet in a year where i'll be turning 26 and it being a source of income. 

5 years is a long time for anything to be in your life, my blog has been my diary, my way of documenting my life and in so many ways it's been therapy. My blog has been there through break ups, moving house (a lot!), adventures and enabling me to meet some of the nicest people a girl ever could. 

This blog has been a learning curve, it's built and broken me, it's changed me a person and it's made me the soon to be 26 year old i am today and for that, i couldn't be more grateful. It's incredible to know that on here there's 5 years of my life, pages and pages of memories on one url. Mind blowing!

Sometimes you can get swept away in the blogging world and your desire to create unique/interesting content can sometimes get the better of you, competition is obvious and sometimes it can become very over whelming. But the fact is, i can still write on here and have people come back to read whatever i have to say and that's pretty awesome.  Maybe after all this time i'm doing alright after all.

So if you've been with me since that very first snowy afternoon, or if today is your first time visiting then thank you, honestly  t h a n k  y o u  from the bottom of my heart. I wouldn't be where i am today without you and that means so much. I'm excited to watch my blog progress, grow along side myself and i can't wait to see what's just around the corner... 

Here's to another happy blogging year!
