Me, Cupcakes and Tea is ONE!

Today, the 1st of August, means that Me, Cupcakes and Tea is officially 1 year old. I started this blog last year this time and wow, what a year it has been! So many things have changed, including my photography and writing. Well, I like to think so anyway.

With my blogs first birthday comes with it some exciting things. For starters, there are going to be come changes. I work full time and blog in the evenings and over the weekend. Uploading 3 posts a week is just not working for me. Yes, I am doing it, but it is really difficult to find the time to produce content that I am 100% happy with.

I am rushing through some blog posts, and I am not enjoying blogging as much as I used to, or as much as I should be!

With that being said, and after a lot of thought, I have decided to post twice a week. I just feel as though this will give me more time to produce content that I can be happy with. It’s something that I have been thinking about a lot and I feel as though this is the right time.

Now onto the other exciting piece of news. To celebrate my blog’s birthday I am going to be hosting a GIVEAWAY!

I wanted to support small businesses so I have chosen 2 Etsy shops to support during this giveaway. The winner of the giveaway will receive one item of their choice from Velvet Library as well a one A5 print from Sweet Allure Shop. There will be one winner and they will win both of these prizes. You will be able to choose which item you want from each shop. Below are some examples:

This giveaway is international! It will end on the 15th of August and the winner will be announced shortly after!
