My 2014 Makeup/Beauty Favorites...!!!14:12:00
Hope you all are doing great. So its the last week of 2014 and this year is going to reach its end in just few days. If I look back at the journey of 2014, this year was full of ups and downs for me. The starting of this year was not very favorable for me. I had been sick for a while and felt quite low but Alhamdulilah things got better as months passed. This year taught me a lot, increased my faith and really taught me so many things.
I went through some bad days in starting of this year, but Alhamdulilah I was blessed with many good days and special memories too. I achieved many blogging benchmarks, bought a lot of makeup, many products from brands that were on my wishlist, made many new blogger friends, exchanged a lot of gifts and did much more. Some special & happiest moments of this year include:
- Getting awarded with Gold Medal in MBA
- Sending Eid gifts to and receiving Eid gifts from fellow bloggers
- Getting my first PR samples
- Becoming Sigma Beauty affiliate
- Earning through blog sale (that was a new experience :D)
and many more.... Indeed there is much more to be grateful for.... Alhamdulilah :)
