Happy 2nd Birthday Little Fickle

There are some things that were the making of me; my mental illness, my recovery, figuring out that I love dogs, my cousin's baby being born - relationships, births, deaths and break ups. Amongst them all there's been one thing that really has been the making of me, and one thing that's been alongside me through every good thing and every bad thing that's happened within the last two years - and that's Little Fickle.

Little Fickle is my fourth attempt at a blog, it's the one I've been the most honest on, the one that's stuck, the one that has my whole heart put into it. It's brought me friends, opportunities, a meeting with Charlotte Tilbury and the most supportive people I've ever met. It's brought me a group chat of people in my area that make me howl laughing every day, that are a genuine friendship group at events - it's brought me confidence, event planning abilities and many, many drunken nights that I'm so lucky to be able to call work.

I'd be lying if I said I liked it this much every day - there are many 4am cold sweats when I realise my post goes live in less than five hours, 10pm tears on the week of an event when I'm still working through emails and me, absolutely hammered because I forgot to eat in the morning and went to an event in the afternoon. In the words of my mother when I was being a little shit; I might not always like it, but there's not a time when I don't love every word that I put on here.

So maybe I've never changed anybody's life with what I write on here, but the fact is - I've kind of changed my own; I'm stronger, more self sufficient, my winged eyeliner is insane and I'm a boss at contour. I've learned my own worth, and I've learned to be so honest that all of a sudden my whole life is online and I don't bat an eyelid at it. I've worked towards changing stigmas, raising awareness and boosting people's knowledge of make up and Disney.

So here's to Little Fickle - this site might not mean too much to anybody else, but it saved my life. Thanks for two amazing years, and here's to many more.
