Five Years Blogging: My Reflections

Five Years Blogging: My Reflections - Sweetaholic Beauty

It's almost hard to believe that I have now been blogging for five years. Five long years. I started my blog as a way to battle my depression and social anxiety. Well, five years on I have a successful blog - at least I consider it to be successful - and I am the proud co-founder of an amazing blogging movement, Bloggers United AU

I thought that rather than simply host a giveaway or do a generic blogiversary post, I would share some of my reflections over the past five years. These reflections can be taken as advice or dismissed, or simply enjoyed by my fellow bloggers - these reflections are mine and mine alone. As bloggers it's inevitable we share experiences, but our own reflections may differ.

Five Years Blogging: My Reflections - Sweetaholic Beauty

Five years on, I have made many friends, travelled across Australia, worked with many brands and tried many new things. Blogging has opened up an entirely new world of people, places and things to see and do. I have had so many amazing experiences, and a few not-so-great ones too. 

There is a lot of negativity surrounding the word "blogger." I have found this out the hard way. I constantly get the questions: "Do you get free stuff?" or "So you get paid to play with beauty products?" Sadly, it's not that easy. Very early on, I learnt that even when you're a blogger, nothing is for free. There is also a lot of pressure to look good on social media all the time, lead an interesting life and look amazing at every hour of the day. Yeah, nah. Not for me, sorry. I am proud to say I haven't let my love of all things dark, crazy, spooky and weird die out just because I'm a beauty blogger. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and I'm proud to be me.

February Lust Have It!*

February Lust Have It! Unboxing - Sweetaholic Beauty

My February Lust Have It! is a tad late, so please forgive me. However, I really liked this month so I wanted to share what I got! I have been getting it for the past few months but I've been terrible at actually sharing the contents - hopefully, this will change now that I'm on a better schedule.

Usually, we get our Lust Have It! in a plain black mesh bag. Cute, but get's a tad boring after a while. There's only so many black mesh cosmetics bags a girl can have. This month came in this adorable themed makeup bag. It's so cute, I'm thrilled.

Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte Lipstick Collection*

Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte Lipstick Collection Review & Swatches - Sweetaholic Beauty

Roughly this time last year, Rimmel London released the amazing The Only One lipstick collection. With a huge range of twelve stunning shades, the beauty world had a new favourite lipstick. They are still my go-to lipsticks - even a year later. Now, Rimmel London has shocked us again with their gorgeous The Only One Matte lipstick range. You can read my review on the original range here.

Featuring nine matte shades, this range shares the same packaging but in a stunning red tube. This range is relatively versatile, much like the first lot, ranging from lovely nudes to deep purples.
