So you think you know my blog...?

Hello everyone!

If you didn't know, I've been blogging here at MysteriousNeonLights since August 2012. If I remember rightly, my first post was a TKMaxx haul... things haven't really changed haha. In 2012, I think I posted twice, not a massive effort there however I picked it back up again in February 2013. For many many months I was posting to a little audience I remember having less than 10 followers for such a long time and I also remember being stuck at 16 for a long time too. I was totally okay with my small audience though, it actually used to kind of scare me when I got a new follower, I was like 'Omg that's someone else who wants to be entertained by my ramblings...I must make my posts better immediately!' Over the last few months though I've gained a lot of new followers (hello everyone!) so I thought it was time to take a look back at some of my older posts, even if just for the laughs, not for the information...

I also really wish I'd taken screenshots of all my old design layouts to show you the evolution of my blog... there's been a few!

My second ever post was an MUA haul. £30's worth of palettes, blue eyeshadow and gel eyeliners that hardly ever get used. I think you can still buy all the palettes now if you take a fancy to any of them.

Sprinkleofglitter's BEDROOM BEAUTY CHALLENGE 27/2/13
What happened to this? 
I think the theme was 'pink' so here I am sporting some sparkly pink eyeshadow, bad photographs and probably numerous typos!

A tag that, as usual, I wasn't actually tagged to do. I think this was the first post I ever got a comment on though so as you can imagine I was chuffed to bits!

I was as happy as larry to be going to a Biffy gig... I'd be pretty bloody cheery about it now tbh. But my blog heard about nothing else besides it for the month of March last year!

My Mum doesn't half take me to some places.... 

This lasted all of a week! But you can read about my first experience here hahaha. I swear it definitely did nearly kill me.

My review of the infamous 120 eBay eyeshadow palettes that everyone buys yet nobody uses...

My first ever MAC lippy... I wore it for months! And it's still way up there in my top 5 lipsticks! 

My first ever Forever 21 experience. I share so much excitement with you guys!

That time when I put purple in my hair. 

I can't believe my desk used to be that messy! 

If you look back through June a significant amount of the posts are holiday based. You could find out anything you need to know about holidays in them posts, I'm telling' ya. 

I remember this getting quite a lot of page views and being really really happy about it!

The answer's NAY guys... definitely nay. 

I was over the moon that I met the author of True Blood. Such a lovely woman with such a brilliant imagination. 

I remember being really excited for this post, I was adamant that it would get lots of views and prove itself really helpful. It didn't. 

So that's brought us up to September 2013 where from then on I think my posts get better all round. I got a new camera and the quality of my pictures got better, the writing style improved, the products I started to talk about got more interesting (I hope) and I started to post more often too. I suppose we all start somewhere though don't we!

Let me know if you enjoyed reading this / laughing at my old posts!
If you feel like it, write something similar on your own blog and leave me comment so I can return the favour and have a giggle too. 

See you next time,
