One Year On...


Hello everyone, today is my one year blogging anniversary. Yes, Water Painted Dreams is now 1 year old. I would just like to thank everyone who has supported my blog over the last year. When I started I didn't think that I'd get anywhere near as far as I have. I don't think I could have done it without my amazing followers, every time I get a new follower or a new comment it really cheers me up and I am so grateful to have such lovely readers. I really want to do a give away to celebrate this and the fact that I now have 500 followers but I have exams starting on Wednesday so it'll be a while before I have the spare time to go get a prize. It will be up sometime soon though.


I've been looking back through my archives and I thought I'd share some of my favourite posts with you all, I know a few of you might have read them all already but it's good to reminisce and I think newer followers will like it.

My First Proper Post- This is so cringey to look at, I really just put this in for a laugh. Look at how bad my photography is! I actually still have the post it note and haven't used up most of the items, oops!

Hatched Nails Tutorial- The photos on this aren't too great but I am really proud of this post. I actually really liked this nail look and looking back on it I'm tempted to do it again.

Lush Cupcake Face Mask Review- Review of probably my favourite Lush product, just wish this had bigger photos!

M&M Cookies - Hurrah, I've finally made the transition to larger photos. This has made me realise it's been ages since I've properly shared a recipe. Need to get baking.

100th Post, 100 Followers & Design Updates - I felt so proud writing this post and I still really love my blog design, thank you Jess!

FOTN & Exam Results - Not going to lie, I only like this post so much because I'm mega proud of my results!

An Edinburgh Adventure - My first proper 'life' post, take me back to summer please!

10 Day You Challenge - Loved doing this challenge, really recommend it if you're looking for a way for your followers to get to know you more.

Nestle? No Way - This is my favourite post. I'm so glad that I was able to do something really good with my blog. So proud that this is my most viewed post.

An Evening In Glasgow - Really like this post because it reminds me of a lovely evening.

50 Things I've Done - This post was so well received, everyone seemed to really like it and quite a lot of people also done their own.

Dubonnet Review - This was the first post in which I properly edited the photos so I really like it because of that. Check out that added text on the second photo!

So there we go, that's my top 12 posts from the past 12 months. Would just like to say thank you once again for all the support everyone has given me!
