Happy Birthday Coco!

Hello you lovely people!

I can hardly believe it, but 'I dream of Coco' is 1 today! I started writing this blog as a means of sharing my love of writing, fashion and Chanel, but since then it has become so much more than that! I've documented fun happenings with my VBF, days out and about with my Mister, lots of cakey get-togethers and even the odd little bit of beauty (even though I am by no means an expert!) and I've loved every minute.  With my first couple of posts, I'd definitely say that my blog was geared towards being a place to offload my love of fashion, but as time has gone by I think it has found its place more in the lifestyle section of the blogosphere and I'm so happy with its transition.

When I started sharing my little world, I hoped to gain at least 100 followers in the first year.  Coco is by no means massive, but with about 145 followers on Bloglovin' and about 20 on GFC, I'm really pleased with how she's done, and it's so nice to think some people out there are interested in my ramblings!  So if you've stuck with me for this long, thank you so much for reading, commenting or just stopping by.  I am so grateful to each and every one of you!  And if you're new...hi! Thanks for checking out my little world!

Plans for the future...? For the coming year I hope to improve my photography and change my layout to make it more Coco appropriate.  I read fabulous blogs every day and they just make me strive to do better with my own, so I guess a big thank you goes out to all of the bloggers that drive me and inspire me to keep working on my own to make it a success.  Don't get me wrong, I never expect blogging to be my career because I really love my job, but I just want Coco to feel as if she's welcome when she's sat next to all the other wonderful blogs that are out there!

My main blogging highlight so far has got to be meeting some of the other wonderful bloggers that are out there, particularly in the North East.  I was so lucky when I attended my first ever blog event to be sat with a group of wonderful ladies who have truly become amazing friends!  I think that as you get older (not that I'm old by the way, I'd just like to point that out!!!) it can be difficult to make friends, but I know that some of my blogging ladies will be my friends for a lifetime.

So, for the next year of Coco you can definitely expect some wonderful adventures with my Mister, some crazy shenanigans (and probably lots of shopping!) with my very best friend in the world, and definitely lots of gossip with my new found friends.  Oh yes and cake, lots and lots of cake!
