Exactly one year ago, I pushed the “publish” button for the first time ever and shared with you guys this post! Yap. It’s finally here! Denim and Cateye turns 1 year today!! 😀

This is such a huge deal for me, mainly because I started this blog at a point in my life when I was a bit of an introvert, extremely shy and truth be told, I struggled with self-esteem issues. I’m not quite the sharer when it comes to my personal life, so typing this all feels weird. Anyway, by starting this blog I hoped to inspire others, without a clue that I too needed it to discover, motivate and build myself so that I can be in a better position to send good vibes your way. Now that I’m looking back, it’s just so amazing how much can change in just one year and as much as I’m not where I want to be just yet, I have so so much to be grateful for! It’s days like this when you wake up feeling anew and you just can’t help but count your blessings one-by-one 🙂

I guess this is also the perfect opportunity to announce that I have been nominated in the Jumia Kenya Glamour Awards Blogger of The Year category?! 😀 Just typing that made my heart beat a little faster! It’s such an honour to be nominated alongside amazing, hard-working bloggers who inspire me in one way or another 🙂 That being said, it would mean so much to me if you took a second to vote for my blog by sending the code KGA050 to 20777. While you’re at it, send in a vote for my photographer, Antony Trivet, who got nominated in the Upcoming Photographer Category by sending the code KGA028 to the same number, 20777. Remember, one text equals one vote so lets keep texting! 🙂
