Quirkydom is Two Years Old! | Giveaway [CLOSED]

June 19, 2017



Hello my lovelies!

Happy Birthday Quirkydom! On this day, 2 years ago I wrote my first blog post. I wanted to celebrate with everyone by doing a small giveaway as a thank you for supporting me, so stay around till the end to find out more. Since then so much has changed, for one I take my own photos now and I couldn't be happier with them. Well there's always space for improvement but I've learned so much already. My content is so much better and I get more views than I could have imagined. 

I started blogging because let's be honest, my writing isn't amazing. My punctuation is all over the place and the sentences don't always make sense. Oli always picks up on the spelling mistakes I make which is good because then I'm improving in my writing. My blog is also my creative outlet. When I used to do Art at school I always used to make some crazy things, because why not? Art is there to have fun and I loved it. For A levels I painted on a door, that was fun. Since last year I stopped doing Art and have started university to do Fashion Marketing and Branding. I love my course and I enjoy the balance between creative but also business. However I'm not creating anymore. I make reports and visual essays but nothing physical. I miss that. I recently started to cross stitch animals which is super fun, they look adorable. I guess I just need that injection of creativity in my life. Doing my blog enables me to be a bit creative as I take my own photos. In the two years I've invested in a DSLR, got some lighting equipment and I even have a remote so I can do my own outfit pictures. I love that I can play with composition in my images and although I don't need that thousand photos taken for that blog post which will only feature 2 images, I guess I'm a perfectionist. I love that I can write about current events, trends and everything that I'm interested in. 

So I want to say thank you to you all. Thank you for reading my content and for supporting me this way. I love that I can bump into old friends and the first thing they say to me is 'I always see your blog post coming up on my facebook'. And I love that although my target audience is just girls, guys tell me that they read it too. So I want to give you guys something back, I'm starting a little giveaway. 

The giveaway will be open for 2 weeks, ending on the 3rd of July at 12am, for anyone to enter. I just ask that you follow me on my Instagram, Bloglovin and leave a little comment on here so that I know you've entered. I'll pick the winner at random and message them at some point on the 4th of July. 

You can win an Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and a Lime Crime Lipstick in the shade Cupid.

Good luck to everyone!

UPDATE: thanks to everyone that participated! The winner is Aliyah Turnbull, thanks for being so amazing!

Thanks for reading, Dom x
