Update | 100th Post and Big News!

Hey Everyone!

Oh my, this is my 100th post! I have hit that publish button 100 times- how strange is that? I know some bloggers churn out that number of posts in a month, but for me this is such a huge achievement and I am so proud that I have stuck to blogging. 

I started back in February, and I can honestly say that my blog and YouTube and everything that comes with them has become such a big part of my life! I have bought amazing products I would never have even heard of, spoke to other bloggers who I would have never known, embraced the world of vintage and thrift and developed my style, wearing things I never thought I would. I know it sounds a bit cheesy but I would just like to thank each and every one of you for hitting that subscribe button and helping to grow my little part of the web. 

Also, I thought it was so fitting in such a landmark post to share some news with you. For months now I have been in the process of applying to go to Africa with my school. My school has a relationship with another school in Tanzania and every other year a group of pupils are selected to fly out to visit. I handed in a report kind of thing back in April and took part in activities with the group of Tanzanian pupils visiting here in June. Then a few weeks ago I had an interview (which was possibly the most nerve racking thing of my life). We finally received the news almost two weeks ago and...

I AM GOING TO AFRICA!!

cheesy picture, I know ;)

I honestly couldn't believe it when the teacher told me. To be honest, I thought I would be really calm about it but I was crying and all sorts of dramatics when I was told! I am excited and scared and shocked all at once. Its a three week trip sometime in July next year and its just so overwhelming. 

I know this is mostly a beauty/ fashion blog but essentially its a subsection of my life and since this trip is going to be such a huge part of my life I thought I would share it with you all.

So to sum up, thank you all for supporting my blog; I blog for myself as a little creative outlet and its amazing to think that others are interested in my ramblings. Secondly, I'm in for a life changing trip in the next year. So just another day in the land of Julz' Obsessions!

Since this is a kind of random post I don't have a specific question for your like usual, so I would like you to comment what kind of posts you enjoy most and if you have received any exciting news recently :)
