SUNNYDEI Turns 1

Recently Sunnydei has turned 1! I really can't believe how fast the last year has flown.

It seems that it was only yesterday I decided that I wanted to become a Blogger.
I was always taking photos of places and things only to store on my computer to be forgotten about. I had tried setting up blogs before, but before long I would give up and there they would be left collecting dust in some distant corner of the internet.
Leeds based lifestyle blogger



And I am so, so very proud of myself that Sunnydei is still very much alive and kicking! (Okay I'll try to stop using the metaphors now.)


Another reason why I set up my blog was because winter was on its way and during the winter months I tend to feel very deflated and have days of intense sadness for what seems like no reason at all (turns out many people feel the same way it's called Seasonal Affective Disorder). Having a blog has given me something to focus my time and attention to, which meant that I felt so much happier last winter and also all the other months too!

Having a blog has changed my life. I know this sounds corny, but it really has! In the last year I have attended so many amazing events, visited lots of restaurants and bars that I otherwise might not have done and best of all met some lovely blogger girls and made some awesome new friends.

Below is just two of them! Gabby from www.whatshebuys.co.uk and Sarah from whatsasssays.com

When I first set up my blog, I really couldn't believe how friendly the blogging community was. I received so much virtual love and support. Each comment that I receive on my posts keeps pushing me to keep writing. It's a very rewarding feeling that someone likes your post, finds it interesting, helpful or entertaining.

So, to any of you have who have taken the time to read my blog, comment or interact with my social media updates I'd like to say a very big thank you (pass me the tissues)!

I have a very clear vision of what I want Sunnydei to become and will be focusing a lot of time and energy into making it happen!

I will be introducing Health and Fitness section, a Travel section and will hopefully include some more fashion posts too. 

To celebrate I have given Sunnydei a big revamp to make it easier to navigate and find my posts.

I will also be hosting a giveaway on twitter very soon so keep your eyes peeled!

I've added a picture below which illustrates how excited I am for the future!


Stay tuned!

Lots of virtual love,
