One Year Blog Anniversary + Giveaway

Hello lovelies!

Yikes... Has it really almost been a month since I last blogged? January flew by and I have zero clue where the time has gone! I honestly just wanted to take a few weeks and "recoup" after the holidays-- And although I know I've been kind of MIA the last few weeks, today is my One Year Blogging Anniversary and I want to do something special for it. It's crazy to think that one year ago today, I decided to really give the blogging thing a shot and posted for the first time. And of course until the last few weeks, I've been pretty consistent, which I'm proud of! I'm definitely ready to get back in the swing of things and make this second year even better! :)

With that being said, I want to do a small giveaway for one of my awesome readers! Who wants a $50 Target gift-card OR $50 Starbucks gift-card? The winner will be able to pick which gift card they want. Woooo! I will announce the winner on Thursday, February 15th. 
The giveaway is for U.S. residents only and the winner will be chosen at random. Here's how to enter:

  • Follow my Blog (There is a follow button right under the "Followers" Tab. You may have to get on an actual computer to do so-- some mobile devices won't show it)
  • Follow me on Instagram @thecharityleigh
  • Leave a comment on THIS post with YOUR Instagram handle (I will DM the winner)

Again, thank you for all of the support this past year! It always blows my mind when I look at my stats and realize people are actually reading. Ha! I've had so many people text me or tell me in person that they enjoy following along and that makes me extremely happy. <3

Love always,


  1. Happy Blogging Anniversary to you!!! I'm glad you've stuck with this! I enjoy reading your post and finding out about your new discoveries or opinions on thing. No more MIA! Only tiny breaks allowed;) @jjbruso

  3. @Alyd10 I love seeing your adventures and have gathered some great ideas from them of things I want to try to do someday. Makes me want to start a blog!

  4. So while it's true that the people make an event (and the people definitely made any event!) this space definitely adds a different dimension to it. Went to LA venue here for an evening event and I was really impressed.
