How do you measure a year? 
March 29th marks one year since I officially created The Caro Diaries. A year ago today, I logged onto, typed in my domain name and wrote my first post

Over the last year, I talked about going through homesickness, how I felt about fashion glamorizing suicide, and prepared college kids to head back to school. I shared my favorite makeup hacks, and some discounts you can get with your college ID too. 

I joined a sorority (and spoiler alert: love it enough to give away planners and letters). I admitted I suck at stuff, and told you what to do when you're hungover - not that it ever helps. 

I moved from free Wordpress to self-hosting, and then my blog crashed, and then I moved over to Blogger and started a new chapter

I crafted a little, and watched a ton of Netflix - and got a bit addicted. I even shared some shaving mishaps. 

But the best part of this year is all the relationships and friendships I've made from this blog. All my blog friends, the companies I've worked with, cards I've received and emails I get asking for advice. No products, no reviews, no free stuff will amount to the happiness I feel when I think back to all of the relationships that stemmed from this year. From that one night, sitting with my laptop open, and my words just flowing. 

So here's to many more years of blogging, and for the support I receive and continue to receive. 
So thank you. And to thank you, keep your eyes out for a big giveaway this week.

As always,

  7. Hi Caroline, I am a fellow Trini...I believe I know your mom, she works at St. Andrew's right? I do as well. I saw your blog's button on another blog and said to myself, 'Wayz...she looks like Mrs. Moses!' and so here I am, only to realize that you are in fact Mrs. Moses' daughter. Small world. :D I don't know much Trinidadians who love to blog as much as I do. I started blogging in 2010 and have never stopped. I closed down my first blog last year and have opened another since. It is such a cool hobby. I'll definitely be back to read more. :)
