Hello everyone! Long time no see. I’m sorry for being MIA for so long. I wasn’t planning to take such a long break, but I wanted to take some time off for the holidays, to enjoy some time with my loved ones, and get some rest. Vlogmas season left me drained of energy, and I really needed to recharge my batteries and come back more relaxed with new posts. After that the cold and the snow came to Greece, which made it impossible to go out and take outfit photos, so that’s why I took more weeks off than I originally planned. I hope I’m back for good though. It’s the first time I left this blog without a post for such a long time, and I really missed it. But I thought it would be fitting to come back just in time to celebrate my blog’s 8th anniversary! You see, 8 years ago to this day, I wrote my first post on DoYouSpeakGossip?. And as I usually do, I wanted to take some celebratory photos to go with the post. They’re not the best outfit photos we have shot, and that’s because the cold and the wind made it impossible to photograph my look in a better way, because I was freezing, but I had all the good intentions, and I do have some good photos to prove it. The dress and the coat are new, but I’ll need to photograph them again in another outfit, to do them justice. So leaving you with these photos! Happy Birthday Do You Speak Gossip?! 🙂
Oh my, 7 years of blogging, how fast the time went by? It feels like yesterday that I started this little blog of mine. I couldn’t celebrate my blog’s birthday in another way than an outfit post, could I? Here it is, and a festive outfit post I might add. With a balloon and everything. haha This year we decided against a bigger helium-filled balloon, because it was a total fail, ’cause the helium made the balloon look deflated in last year’s photos, because of the cold weather and we didn’t want to repeat that. So here’s a smaller and cuter one instead. I built the whole outfit around burgundy color, and I really loved how it turned out. It looked even better in real life believe me! I’m definitely going to wear it again for a night out with friends or the boyfriend.
This post is long due, since I’ve been meaning to make it for over a month now. Do You Speak Gossip? actually turned 6, last month, and I wanted to make a special post to celebrate its anniversary, as I do every year, but due to the bad weather, and the fact that we couldn’t catch the balloon store open, we postponed it again and again. But I’m finally here today, with my balloon, and the outfit I had in mind when I imagined this post, so I guess better late than never. Right? Once again the weather was very cold so my balloon looks deflated (what a surprise! I was expecting it since our previous photoshoot with the balloon), and it was so windy that it was almost impossible to photograph it the right way, but heyyy… we did it! This is actually the look I wore on Valentine’s day, and I loved loved lovedit!!! It’s way too light for the season, but I couldn’t wait to wear it. I can’t believe that my little blog turned six this year. I feel like it was just yesterday when I started it. I can’t say that I’ve achieved my goals about it, not even close, but I’m doing my best every day to make them happen! I’m sure that one day all this hard work will pay off. Hopefully that would be sooner rather than later. So apart from a post, I decided to also celebrate it with an international giveaway, with 2 winners. Each of them will win 1 liquid matte lipstick by Golden Rose (no.10). Stay tuned to my Facebook page to learn all the details, because the giveaway will take place both on my Facebook and my Instagram account, and you’ll be able to take part in both.
Oh my, how quickly the years go by… My little blog now celebrates its 5th anniversary today, and as I always say, I couldn’t be more excited about it. We wanted to do something bigger for the anniversary post, but plans didn’t go as we wanted, so our “celebrations” are really low-key this year. But if everything has gone according to plan, you must be seeing the new (and hopefully improved!) Do You Speak Gossip? since T. and I had been working on a redesign for 2016. We didn’t change much, since we wanted something fresh, but still practical for both you and me. So we tweaked the old theme a bit, and we really hope you like the changes we made (they’re mostly done to the homepage of the site).
As promised, here’s the full outfit of the day we celebrated my blog’s anniversary with a cake. 4 years ago, I wrote my first post on this blog, and without putting too much thought on it, I became a blogger. I told you many times before, that I treat my blog like my business, but at the same time I see it as my child. It’s something that I’m really passionate and proud about. So naturally I had to celebrate its “birthday” and dress up in a proper way! Here’s the outfit of that day. Simple, two-color, ladylike chic, like my signature style! I hadn’t worn this dress in a while so I thought it was a good opportunity to do so. I hope you like the look. Don’t forget to take part on my blog’s new giveaway.
