What Lauren Did Today is One! + My Favourite Posts

What Lauren Did Today is officially one year old! Yep, it's been one year to the day since my very first post on this blog, which was a 'First Impressions' of City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. I can't believe how far I've come! Since that post, I've talked about mental health and anxiety, becoming vegetarian and going cruelty-free, as well as my favourite books and lots of to-do lists. If you've read the 'About Me' section of this blog, you'll know that I started What Lauren Did Today after beauty blogging for a year, and it's the best decision I've ever made.
I've met so many amazing people both through this blog and through Twitter that I'm so grateful to have met. I've also been inspired by so many fabulous bloggers, who have helped me make so many decisions, whether they were conscious of it or not. I don't think I ever would have become cruelty-free as quickly and easily if it weren't for all of the amazing cruelty-free and vegan bloggers that I follow.
*sniff* now, enough mush and tears. I thought it'd be fun to share with you guys all of my favourite posts from the past year. I did something similar in my Goodbye 2014 post, but I thought it was due an update.
Finally, I just want to say a massive THANK YOU! to everyone who reads/comments/tweets and interacts in any way with me and my blog. I recently reached 250 followers which is AMAZING and overwhelming and kind of scary at the same time. I literally can't believe that this many people find me remotely interesting! I'm so glad that people like my blog, because I put in so much effort and it's amazing to receive a comment or a tweet about a post that I've worked hard on.
Another way that I'm saying thank you will be live midday on the 1st of June, so keep an eye out for that ;)
Love you guys <3
