Can’t believe a year ago today I posted my very first blog post! Here was my very first blog post (click here). It was pretty basic and a quick introduction to what my blog was going to be about.


My blog originally started out as Runningfashblog. I had set up an Instagram page for it and had never really thought about turning it into an actual blog where I would have to publish blog posts. I was always the person who hated people reading anything that I write. I suppose the informality of my blog suited me, I enjoy just writing like I am talking 😆.

Anyway back to the point I want to thank all my readers and followers for reading and following my blog. I am still in shock at the amount of people who have actually viewed it. I really appreciate the nice comments I have received and also that I haven’t got any negative comments (yet) 👍😆.

During the year I made some great blogging friends and got to go to a load of events that I never would have got the chance to go to if I wasn’t blogging. I am not saying I get invited to every event out there, pretty much every one I have bought tickets to go. Volunteering at Dublin Fashion Festival event probably wouldn’t have happened if I wasn’t blogging.

Thanks again for following and I plan and hope that I was will have a post up this time next year celebrating The Chatterbox Diaries turning 2 😆

Here are some of my favourite posts:

Pippas Fashion Factory – my first official blog post.

Passion Persistence Pink Event

Look Fantastic Beauty Box Review

The Liebster Awards

My holiday review on Malta

Finally one of my low carbon recipes, low carb lasagna

Managing to get nominated for the Irish Blog Awards was also a huge achievement for me 😆

A few presents for myself to celebrate 😅

Thanks so much again for taking the time to read my blog 💓
