My blogging story + GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

As a young adult today, I've grown up being surrounded by various Social Media platforms and I've seen so many different crazes come, go and linger. It all started with a Bebo profile. Bebo had a Blog module where you could write as many cringe-worthy posts which you would regret years later. I enjoyed this feature so much that I moved on to make a Tumblr profile, purely just to write, rant and ramble on about everything and anything. At this point in my life, I was about 12 or 13 years old and I didn't quite grasp the purpose of Tumblr; my early posts were mostly tags, questionnaires, 30-day-challenges and (not literally) essays, and are most probably deleted by now! I was fairly late to jump on the Facebook bandwagon - I made my profile in 2009 and even though that platform relies predominantly on status updates and photos, I still managed to sneak a little Recap of the Year blog-esque post, which was 1000% cringe and is probably deleted. 

Fast forward to a few years later - this is the time where I got into vloggers and actual real bloggers. I thought it was incredibly cool and it quickly became my dream job to be a Youtuber and a Blogger at the same time (we can all dream to be like Zoe Sugg). After a few months of procrastinating and laziness, I thought about a blog title, url and made a banner in about 20 minutes. I stuck with 'AlissAMR' for a while, until I recently made the change to 'Words By Femme'.

I started blogging just seven months ago, and I never thought that I would be receiving hundreds of readers every day, reading what I have to say. I gain unlimited inspiration from fellow bloggers and I think you guys are some of the most beautiful people on Earth. I've been given so many wonderful blogging opportunities from some wonderful companies and I find that I love interacting with you all! I'm really glad that I started blogging and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

So since I'm feeling super generous, I'm doing my very first giveaway! One of you lovely readers will win a prize pack including items that I have thoughtfully chosen myself. Most of these items are things that I adore and I've thrown them in so you can fall in love too.
