A Look Back on 2013!

By December 28, 2013 DIY & Lifestyle, Fashion, My Style

WOW. It’s coming to the very last days of 2013. I seriously think that this year has gone soooo fast! Today I’m here to do a bit of a soppy post about what a great year it has been on this little bit of the internet which I can call mine! This is also the last post I will do until the middle of January, because I am having a bit of a break! You can read to the end about where you can contact me etc. I must stop this intro, as this is gonna’ be a long one!

January: This was the month that started my first full year of blogging off! I was still very new to blogging at this stage, and was really developing some of my content. Exciting things that happened – This was the month when I did my first review for a brand. Obviously PR and things like that are not the most important, but it is a nice feeling when a brand thinks you are good enough to promote them. I also had the very exciting email telling me that The Telegraph want me to feature in their magazine! How cool?! My motivation was boosted then and it was so exciting! Favourite blog posts – Voodoo Girl Review, DIY Sequin Collar & Youth Minds & Magazines Thank You To – Voodoo Girl & Jessica Salter

February: This month was exciting because I knew that very soon I was going to be in my first ever magazine article! 😀 Exciting things that happened – I started to work with more brands and started to gain more followers, which was really exciting. I also remember getting a blog post RTed by FleurDeForce which was like… mega cool. Favourite blog posts – Alexa Chung, I’m Bored, The Nespresso Dress & Loretta and Her Adventures Thank you to – All my followers & Francesca Pina Jewellery

March: Do I even need to describe this month?! I do not think so! 😀 Exciting things that happened – I was in The Telegraph Magazine! YAY! I was literally amazed. The support I had, and the amazing messages I had was unbelievable, and I will always remember March 16th. I also spoke on BBC Radio 4 to talk about my blog post on Global Kids Fashion Week, which was so nerve racking and crazy! It was also when the Company Magazine Blog Award nominations started! I also became a Wantering Trendsetter and have had so much support from them ever since! Favourite blog posts – Model In The Making, BBC Radio 4 Interview & Global Kids Fashion Week Thank you to – Wantering, BBC Radio 4, Daniel Sandler & The Telegraph Magazine

April: After March I was really on a high and I was looking forward to making this month even better! I was really excited for the Company Magazine Blog Awards Short-List to be released, and was generally just loving blogging! Exciting things that happened – I got in to the Company Magazine Blog Awards Short-List! YAY! (That was a mouthful!) It was also when I decided I would like to do my own blog awards, so I started up the Posh Fashion Awards! I got some very nice sponsors, which was amazing and I’m very proud of the success it had! Favourite blog posts – Dr Martens, Posh Fashion Awards & Beside The Seaside Thank you to – My followers & All the brands that sponsored the Posh Fashion Awards

May: *drum roll* The month of my birthday! I had to say goodbye to my ’12 year old’ self and say hello to teenage life. Fabulous! But, it was pretty special… I had one heck of a birthday present! (Minus the bad stuff which you might remember) Exciting things that happened – I was featured in Mizz Magazine on May 16th, 2 months exactly after The Telegraph Magazine! It was a DOUBLE PAGE spread, and I was soooo shocked about it! I attended the Company Magazine Blog Awards (sadly didn’t win), but YOU got me there. No joke, you actually got me there, and I seriously cannot thank you enough, and I hope one day we can all meet up and I can give you a real hug, but for now a virtual hug will have to suffice *big hug*! Favourite blog posts – Company Blog Awards Part 1, Part 2 & DIY Embellished Sunglasses Thank you to – Sian To, Lucy Saxton & All my followers!

June: I believe this month was fairly quiet, but I am still really grateful for all the support I had even in the not so exciting months! I think it’s also nice to have a bit of calm to come back to reality, non? Exciting things that happened – I started to work with bigger brands including Boohoo, which was really fun and nice to see that bigger brands liked my tiny weeny blog! Favourite blog post – Boohoo DIY Thank you to – Boohoo

July: After a slow and steady June, Tolly Dolly Posh was back with a bang! Yipee! Exciting things that happened – I was featured in Girl Talk Magazine! This was really cool because it was an article about inspiring girls, and never in a million years would I have expected that! July was also the month I got to tell you that I was becoming an Aunty! Woop! Just so you know, my lovely nephew is doing so well! He’s really healthy and so beautiful! 😀 Favourite blog posts – Keep On Swimming Designs & The White Pepper Magazine Thank you to – Eva Caiden & All my followers (again, haha)!

August: Another pretty exciting month because me and my blog sort of went a bit European… oooh! It was also when I decided it was time to update the TDP banner! Exciting things that happened – I was in Super Trash magazine in Holland! Unfortunately the pictures were the other way round so it looked like I was another blogger but oh well it was still pretty awesome! 😀 As I said I also changed my banner, and I really like it! My sister did the photography again and I am super proud of them 🙂 Thanks big sis! Favourite blog posts – A Fresh New Start, Jeans for Genes & Kathy Allison Interview Thank you to – Boohoo, My big sister & Jeans for Genes

September: Just like June, from September onwards really it has been pretty quiet for you guys, and partly me, it’s really hard to explain what I mean but yeah haha! Exciting things that happened – I had a really cool email which I still can’t tell you about, but it was so amazing and it made my month! I also started to work with Peacocks on a long time collaboration, and also with JD Sports on a review which I was honoured to do! Favourite blog posts – Oriental Jungle in The City, Nike Trainers Review & LFW SS14 Review Thank you to – Sophia Holland-Thomas, JD Sports and A few people who I can’t tell you about!

October: OMG. I became an Aunty! My beautiful nephew was born this month and I was so happy! I got to see him for a week and I had never held a baby before and it was the most magical thing in the world! Exciting things that happened – I went to London to do something really exciting and I met Ophelia, Ibe & Rachel who were all really nice. Favourite blog posts – Happy Halloween & Holographic Trend Thank you to – A few people who I can’t tell you about (again)!

November: To be honest I think November was just a really nice chilled, and calm month for me and my blog! Sometimes as a blogger it’s nice to just not have so many things you have to do for people and just do lots of basic blog posts, and that’s what I did! Favourite blog posts – Christmas Wishlist, Lazy Oaf Inspired Designs & A/W Look Book Thank you to – Moooh!, Jerry from Lazy Oaf & Sophia Holland-Thomas!

December: So I know this month hasn’t officially finished, but I think it’s safe to say the majority has gone! Exciting things that happened – I gave you guys 3 give-away’s! I got some lovely support from ARK Clothing who I love! Favourite blog posts – Christmas OOTD & Punky Pins Give-Away Thank you to – ARK Clothing (especially Rebecca!), Punky Pins & Shuttersong

I have quite a few followers, but there are some which just have supported me through and through, and have just been so lovely, and given me so much more motivation, so… thank you to – Christina, Lisette, Anna, Alex, Georgie, Grace, Mia, Natalie, RoseJojo, Sophie, Nora, Debbie and Krista, Sian Toeveryone else!

So yes! That is basically it for this year?! So crazy! I hope 2014 is as good as this year, and that I get to share so much more with you. It’s weird to think that next year I will be 14?! I started it when I was 11! Crazy crazy crazy. As I said, I am going off on a break (well, staying at home), so this will be the last post until about the 16th January!

By March 29, 2013 Competitions, DIY & Lifestyle, Fashion, My Style

On March 29th 2012, exactly one year ago, the very first post of the Tolly Dolly Posh Fashion blog was published. It is now March 29th 2013, and I am proud to say, I have been blogging for one whole year. If you don’t want to read this post, don’t, because it is going to be filled with hundreds of Thank Yous, and lots of memories, so you are free to keep on scrolling down the page… (GIF via Tumblr)

cakeMy dream is to become a Fashion Designer as you know, and that is one of the reasons I started this blog. I don’t want it to be the only reason though, I don’t want it to be how I get ‘famous’. My plan in life is not to be famous, but to just be somewhere I am happy, and somewhere I am proud of myself. But, the blog has been the start of that, it’s the little seed that hopefully one day, will grow into a colourful flower, just like me. I’m only starting out my life too, I’m 12 years old, and I have still got an awful lot to learn. Again, my age isn’t something I want people to read my blog for. I want people to read it because they enjoy reading it. I want them to ignore my age whilst reading it, and then afterwards remember, that I am only 12. I hope that if you are a daily/weekly/monthly/yearly reader, that you do enjoy reading my blog, and seeing what I have accomplished in 1 year, I think, perhaps, just maybe, you might? So here’s the soppy, thank you part.

 I don’t want to boast, this is about sharing the successes which you have made possible for me. Okay, okay, I have made some of it possible myself (I do write the blog, you know?!), but the only reason I can get recognised is because of all of you support me, and believe that I can reach my dreams. My first big achievement was being My Celebrity Fashion’s Blogger of The Week, which was awesome! Thank You to all the team at MCF! The next one was being on Superstar Fashion Network which has over 44,000 likes on Facebook, Thank You! I have also been on Wantering as a Trendsetter which was so amazing, as I had over 130 re-blogs on their blog which was mind boggling! Thank You!! I was also nominated for a MADs Blog Award for 2013, which was amazing! (Good Luck to the finalists!) As you know March 16th for me was another amazing day! I was featured in The Telegraph Magazine that was literally insane. I cannot thank Jessica Salter who wrote the article, enough. Thank You!! Then, to have woken up last Saturday morning, to receive an email saying BBC Radio 4 would like me to speak on the ‘iPM‘ show, just made my life even more complete! WOWZA! (Click the player above to listen!) And! In even more recent news (yesterday), I tweeted an illustration of David Bowie, and it was RTed & Instagrammed by Iman (David Bowie’s Wife) who is a Fashion Designer! Thanks Iman! In a couple of weeks time I have a pretty exciting thing happening too, which you may already know about… Yes, Tolly Dolly Posh is going to be featured in Mizz Magazine! In the very next issue (the exact date will be revealed soon), you will find my face! You may not be a teen, but I used to read this magazine (when I was in the UK), and my sister used to when she was my age too, so it really is awesome!
So far in ways of stats and followers, my PB for stats is 530 which isn’t much for some bloggers, but I literally do not care, that is amazing! I have built up over 920 Followers across Facebook, Twitter, BlogLovin’ HelloCotton, and GFC. Again, I seriously just want you to know, I don’t want to boast. I am just telling you that you have supported me so much through all of these amazing achievements.

photoUnfortunately, due to the fact that I am 12 and don’t have the biggest of budgets, I couldn’t do a massive give-away, but there has been one on! It’s a little thank you for supporting me and my blog as we go on our little journey! Congratulations to the winner!

The Winner of The Harts & Crosses Earring Give-Away is…
MIA! – Teenage Beauty Blogger

I will message you ASAP with details.

So, that is it! It’s been one whole year of blogging! It’s been a very successful journey so far, and I hope from here the road is up! Thank You for all your support, it really does mean the world to me, and I am 100% grateful for it all. I mean it! If you’d like to be an angel, and support me even more make sure to nominate my blog as Best Teen Blog in the Company Style Blogger Awards. Please use the URL: http://www.tollydollyposhfashion.com (Nominations end on April 10th) Thank You so much, and where ever you are, I blow you the biggest kisses ever! *blow….* Did you miss it?
