Happy 11th blogiversary, Cosette's Beauty Pantry!

Dear readers, Cosette's Beauty Pantry is eleven (11) today!

Yes, I published my first blog post 11 years or 4018 days ago. I wanted to take the opportunity to mark the occasion of the blog’s 11th anniversary. Eleven is a lot of years to be writing a blog.

Eleven years ago...

  1. I was 25 years old.
  2. I started blogging because I wanted to help other people who were dealing with acne and adult acne.
  3. I loved experimenting with DIY beauty recipes.
  4. Initially, the blog was named Skin Care Suggestions.
  5. The main focus of the blog was skincare.
  6. I used to write under the screen name Euphrasie85. It was common practice back then.  
  7. Social media was not really a thing.
  8. Many people close to me did not understand what I was doing; or why I was doing it.
  9. At first, I used my phone to take pictures for the blog.  Back then, cameras phones were nowhere near as good as they are today.
  10. I was not yet a vegan.
  11. I had not fully embraced my wavey/curly hair.
