This Sunday (22nd July) marks the 6th month anniversary of my blog. I would like to start with a huge and soppy thank you! Thank you to the people who supported me but also to those who mocked me and constantly brought me down about having a blog. The people at my 6th form who shouted abuse at me for having a blog, particularly ripped into me about the name, whoever knew the name 'adayinthelifeofems' could cause so much anger/bitchiness for people? I'd like to thank these people, because trying to pull me down just made me want to suceed and prove you all wrong. 'Keep your head up high, people would kill to see you fall'. Of course, I am a long long way from being where I want to be, I have so many plans for my blog and can only thank you guys, my lovely and supportive readers for helping me to get this far! I initially started this blog as a diary about my life, but then I realised, I want to inspire and help people so why not make an online dictionary about everything that is fashionable? Then, it can be linked to anything and everything and not just focused on one topic. Mainly, I'd like to thank you guys, yes you, reading it right now! Thank you, your continued support has made my blog what it is today. If I didn't have anyone to write for, I would probably lose some of my passion. A huge thank you to all of you who have sent me tweets, facebook messages and emails, telling me that you like my blog or telling me that it's inspired you, these messages literally mean the world to me. When people drag me down it's these lovely comments that make me realise why I love having a blog, I still can't believe that people actually like to read what I write!? I'm sorry if I sound like i'm boasting, I promise im not, I just never expected this and im so happy that people like to read about what I have to say and the fact that i've inspired at least one person really makes this worthwhile. This 6 months has been a whirlwind of excitement and once again, couldn't have done it without you. I'm nearly at 1000 followers and I've hit my target and got over 100,000 page views in such a short length of time, literally cannot get over it. Not to mention that I am a winner of the Samsung Global Blogger competition and found out the other day that I've been shortlisted for the Cosmpolitan new comer award , like I keep saying, I could not have done any of this without you all.

a Rafflecopter giveaway Last but certainley not least, I'd like to dedicate this post to the lovely Xen-tan. If you read my blog, you'll know that I adore this brand. I have so much time for them, just like they have so much time for us, the consumers of their products. I was lucky enough to be invited to their amazing bash in Manchester recently, i've deliberately saved this post until today because I wanted this to be dedicated to them.
As you can see, the champagne was flowing, the spray tans were looking golden and the canapes were amazing, absolutely delicious. The team who led it were all absolutely fabulous, all stunning ladies but they all had somethingelse in common, a love and a genuine passion for the brand. Much like me, if you read my blog regularly you'll know that Xen-tan is my ultimate tan. I could never say a bad word about it, Xen-tan is a holiday in a bottle. I cannot thank these lovely ladies enough for the invite, let alone for creating such a revolutionary and life changing brand to begin with. Cheers to Xen-tan and Wizard PR for the invite, not much could top their party. If you haven't tried it yet, you really must. I've just done a new video on one of their best sellers including some fake tan tips, make sure you give it a watch.
Xen-tan have been nice enough to give my loyal followers a discount code, simply enter: BBTAN20 to get some discount on their website. http://www.xen-tan.co.uk/
Many thanks and lots of love, once again thank you for the support.
