First Blog Birthday and Giveaway! (CLOSED)

blog-first-birthday-giveaway-urban-decay-electric-ysl-lipstick

Hello, beauties! A year ago this week, I embarked on what has become one of the most amazing and rewarding journeys I have ever known. Started as a distraction from severe anxiety and depression, this blog has become such a huge, important part of my life. Combining my passions for writing, beauty, fashion, and daily life, Southern Charmed has enabled me to grow my writing skills, meet new people I now consider dear friends, interact with beloved brands, and explore the world around me in a way I could have only dreamed about.

My year writing Southern Charmed has given me purpose, opened doors to my dreams, and set me on a life course that has me more excited for the future than I've ever been. It's been a lifeline, a teacher, a creative outlet, and an absolute dream come true, and for that I will forever be grateful.

However, none of this could have happened without the love and immense support from each and every one of you, my amazing readers! When I started this blog, I couldn't imagine one person reading it, let alone hundreds from all around the world. Each and every one of you is so dear to me. Your comments, tweets, and emails mean more to me than you will ever know, and never fail to brighten my day.

So to thank you for being the fabulous readers that you are, I'm holding a GIVEAWAY! Two of my fave purchases of the last couple of months has been the Urban Decay Electric palette and a YSL lippie. What better way to show my love than to share a couple of my new favorite things!

Again, thank you all so much for being the best readers ever (and you totally are, real talk)! I wouldn't be here without you and could never thank you enough. Y'all are the bees knees, and I love y'all from the very bottom of my heart!
