Glambunctious turns 1!

1 year ago today, I posted my first review!  I'd actually attempted to do a beauty blog during the summer of 2011 but I had a really bad camera that produced really blurry photos.  Unfortunately, very few of those early reviews are still up on this site due to a glitch in my photo storage software that caused most of the pictures to get deleted.  That's okay though, because I dusted myself off after taking a break, and decided to get back on the blog train!

Over the course of the year, I have to say the best thing I've gained is the friendship of YOU GUYS!!  You all mean so much to me!  You guys aren't just like-minded beauty lovers, you're friends.  Hearts!

Every person who's taken the time to interact with me here has participated in making me feel like this blog had a purpose and I genuinely thank you from the bottom of my heart!  Your support and friendship continues to serve as a source of positivity and inspiration.  Here's to a fantastic 2014!

Thank you!  I love you guys!

A few stats...if you're into that sort of thing!

I've published 190 posts in 2013.
