Miel and Mint is 2! + Blogiversary Giveaway

Desigual Scarf Soft Landscape, summer fashion, Miel and Mint is 2
Miel and Mint is 2!!! TWO YEARS OLD!!! I am way too excited and probably sound more like a proud "blog-baby momma" than just a "blog owner" BUT... when your little corner on the internet survives against all odds but also reaches those HUGE milestones, you can't not be celebrating and saying a MASSIVE THANK YOU to each and every one of you who reads, encourages, supports and sticks with me even through times of silence, digital detox & "creative hibernation". As you might have heard already, big changes are coming as it is TIME to take Miel and Mint to the next level. It's time to fall in love with blogging over again. It's time to grow, improve and give you back in any way I can: with a piece of advice, an uplifting message or a comforting read. And today it's time to mark the date and say thanks in a form of a little gift. But first, let's go and see where it all began.
blogging, Miel and Mint is 2
I thought I was in a {good kind of } shock when my blog had "survived"  the initial 12 months.

Well, today I am finding this new milestone even more exciting because the sheer fact that I am writing this and you guys will respond (with a comment, a tweet, a message or any other way) makes it all that much more REAL and note-worthy. To be honest, I never had an issue of sticking to the hobbies or activities I loved when I was younger. Things started to change a bit when the adulthood "hit". Then it's became all about commitments and priorities so certain things sometimes have to take a backseat and... well, it happened to Miel and Mint a few times throughout the last 12 months.

And with that came guilt. Way too many times. It wasn't fair on the blog I put so much work and love into. Even more so, it wasn't fair on you, my readers and friends. 

What contributed majorly to the fact that it's my 2nd blogiversary today was the fact that you have never given up on me. The radio silence on the blog or social media hasn't turned you off. You have simply reached out to check in with me or wanted to know how you could help. I still have to pinch myself sometimes thinking how many incredible people I've connected with because of blogging. 

But even if you have never sent me a single message or gave me written feedback, I am thankful that you are here. You're reading these lines. Whether you have been around for 2 years or 2 days, thanks for being here.

These 2 years have been eye-opening in many ways. I've learnt so much and I can't wait to share about it all with you in a separate blog post next week (make sure to stay tuned for it). There is so much to the blogosphere, and many people don't know about one gazillion things that are happening behind the scenes. At the end of the day it's great to be able to get some lessons out of each good and not-so-good situation.

I have to admit - there has been so much more GOOD. Good always wins, doesn't it? There have been multiple mind-blowing collaborations with brands I've admired for ages, growing following (not talking about you, Instagram algorithm), amazing discoveries in the blogosphere and overall lots of inspiration and love. 

I have also realized how much I have been enjoying writing lifestyle {chatty} posts and sharing helpful advice. I guess I've always been the person my friends would come for advice to. So it comes naturally and effortlessly to me. Plus, how fun is fashion? I am finally exploring more and more of it on my Insta and here on the blog. For some reason I feel like it adds even more to my personality so it comes through. There are some unexplored areas too. I still haven't opened the world of YouTube to myself. I don't want to push it. When the time comes, I will know. And you will be the first ones to find out.

Just like I did in my Miel and Mint is ONE post 12 months ago, today I also wanted to share 10 posts I have written which I LOVED not depending on the "popularity" or "numbers". I think you loved these too:
