That's right, it's the 1st birthday of COURTZMELV, can you believe how quickly a year has gone!?

A year ago today, i spent my first night at home after being in hospital for a week after having an operation on my leg, and i woke up to the news that my beautiful grandmother had passed away. The most devestating news i could of ever heard, my grandma was my everything and i miss her like crazy. She inspired me to start writing this blog, it never had any purpose to begin with but then it developed into a fashion and lifestyle blog. Before i suppose i just used it as a place to write about nonsense and if you look at my earlier posts you'll see that. My grandma used to love reading minature stories i'd written, she always told me to follow my dreams, to voice my opinions... and hence 'COURTZMELV' was born. This blog, although a fashion and  lifestyle blog which is really based on my opinions, to me, is in memory of my grandma. She always wanted me to voicie my opinions and she loved english so she'd be happy to know i was chanelling my writing skills into something positive. Rest in peace Grandma, i love you.

I think it's about time i do another giveaway, what do you think? Considering my blog is now officially a year old, i thought it would be nice to celerbrate this with a giveaway. Details will be posted soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

Happy bloggerversary! Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy reading your blog. You have a cool snug/cosy but elegant style, which I hope to achieve one day (hopefully before winter's up!) I've been reading your blog for a bit, but have only just started commenting (and have only just started my own).
