3rd Blog Birthday & MAC Giveaway

Three years ago today Two Different Worlds was born. I had been reading a few blogs and found a lot of Youtubers I admired and thought I’d give it ago myself. At the time it was no more than a hobby and honestly not something I thought I’d keep doing, but three years on it’s become my true passion.

Over the years I’ve had a bit of a love hate relationship with my blog and didn’t really know what direction I wanted to take it in. This year I decided to really put effort into growing Two Different Worlds into a proper brand and honestly, it’s been the best blogging year I’ve ever had.


Changing the layout and giving Two Different Worlds a much needed makeover was the start of great things to come. I finally took the plunge and bought myself a DSLR after years of wanting one and took my photography to the next level. I’ve discovered how much I actually love blog photography and have started to be recognised for my pastel imagery.


I’ve quite literally travelled outside of my comfort zone and attended lots of amazing events in London, Basingstoke and Southampton. Meeting lots of other bloggers, successful people and brands has been an excellent experience and has only made me fall even more in love with blogging.


I’ve collobrated with lots of exciting brands and have felt more confident with my blogging skills. I’ve grown real friendships with other bloggers both in real life and on Twitter - Sophie, Juanita, Teri-May, Hayley, Rose and Kat to name just a few. They’ve made my blogging experience so much more special and I love having my own little community of lovely people.


The real big step I took this year was telling people in real life, that I blog. I mentioned it in passing during a job interview and to my surprise the interviewer found it really interesting and it ended up landing me the job. Before then I’d always thought people would laugh at me for being a blogger and not really take it seriously, but I was so wrong. I’ve found that my friends and family have been extremely supportive of me and that most people actually find it pretty cool and interesting.


I’ve felt the love so much this year and the icing on the cake was being shortlisted for a Cosmopolitan Blog Award. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I was capable of achieving that. I’ve always felt like every other blogger is in a different league to me but this year I feel like I’ve discovered who I am as a blogger and I can’t wait to take things to the next level.


I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has made my 3rd year of blogging so special and what better way to do it than a giveaway!

I’ll be giving one person the chance to win a MAC lipstick of their choice. All you have to do to enter is follow the steps below and don’t forget to read the terms and conditions.
