Bell's Fashion 2nd Birthday!

I cannot believe that it's been 2 years since I started this blog. My textiles teacher in college was always trying to persuade me to start one and then when I had my induction for uni, one of our summer projects was to start one up and that's when Bells Fashion was born. My intentions for this blog were always (and still are) to create an online diary for myself documenting outfits, style development, work (styling/photography) that I can look back on and I also see as a sort of portfolio for possible employers in the industry to get an insight into what you're like, and what your tastes are.

I am so extremely grateful to every single person who reads and supports my blog, you are the best people in the world in my eyes. I can't tell you how much it means to me to read all your lovely comments, I still can't believe 580 of you look at my blog! I've had a really crap time over the last 2 years with several family cancer battles, several losses and battling my own stress-induced illnesses but I honestly believe blogging has helped me get through it. Whenever I've had really down days, there has always miraculously been some amazing opportunity come up from blogging to cheer me right up and without even knowing it, you readers have been there for me more than most people in the real world. So I just wanted to write this very rare, emotional blog post to say a huge THANK YOU!

I feel like my style has developed so much since starting my blog, I've had so many amazing opportunities and met so many amazing, inspiring people from the blogosphere. I love you all <3
