Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to Eltoria Blog. Happy birthday to you. Woo! It's pretty much been a year since I have started blogging (time has just flown by). So this post is really a memoir/collaboration of all of my favourite blog posts in the last year. From beauty tips to life advice, this post will give you a broad insight into the world of Eltoria. So how did it all come about? I started this blog for a number of reasons, firstly; I love beauty, secondly; it was something that I could incorporate into my degree and the last reason (I'm sure) will be shared with you all sometime in the future. So much has happened in the last year and I thank each and every one of you for taking the time to read this blog. Do let me know in the comments whether you are an 'oldie' or a 'newbie'- it will be great to know how far some of you go back! Ps: if some of the posts mentioned in this post takes you fancy, you can access it by clicking on the text in bold.
Beauty Posts: Originally this blog kicked off giving beauty, makeup, and health advice. My e.l.f make up review (left) and face mask review (right) were one of my first beauty posts that I did. My face mask review gave advice as what you should look out for in a facemask. If you have oily, problematic, or dry skin, this post will give you a huge insight as to how you can over come your skin problem. On the other hand, My e.l.f make up review gave you the 'do's' and 'don'ts' in make up application. This later transpired into other posts where I even wrote about 'How To Contour Like Kim Kardashian'.
How To Posts: This blog can also give you tips, methods, and ingredients as to how you can make your own beauty products! From 'How To Make You Own Lipscrub' and 'How To Make Your Own Hair Mask', you sure can rely on Eltoria to give you some money saving tips! (Although it is fun too).
Lifestyle Posts: With my first year of blogging being a success, I decided to give my fellow readers tips and advice into writing their own blogs. From 'How To Increase Your Blog Views' (currently my most read post) to 'How To Get Over The Writer's Block', writing life style posts has been one my favourite genres to write about. I have even written about my own bullying experience called 'Bullied' and other various posts like 'The Common Lies Women Tell Men' and the 'Expectations v Reality of University'. Give them a read (some are quite a giggle)!
Fashion Posts & Prize Giveaways: Who doesn't love a good prize giveaway and a sneak peak into someone's 'Outfit Of The Day'. From being published on Select Fashion's Instagram page to running designer sunglass giveaways for Michael Kors and Carrera, you can sure rely on Eltoria to win some snazzy things. Maybe a new giveaway will follow in celebration of my 1 year birthday?
Health and Food Posts: Oh who doesn't love a good smoothie or work out? With recently graduating from University, I have tried to stay away from Domino's and Kebabs after a night out. Giving you all a sneak peak into 'My Food Diet Diary' and 'How To Go From Damaged To Healthy Hair' you can learn how to change your life style in a heart beat.
YouTube: With making my YouTube debut in February this year, over coming my fear of 'talking to the camera' has become a distant memory. From 'LUSH Hauls' and 'How To' videos to 'Things That Bug Me' you can get a whole range topics creeping up on my channel. After recently doing a video sponsored my e.l.f , I am really keen to to start putting more time and effort into my channel. So watch out year 2!

Well that's a little insight into my world guys!
