mitsueki’s Blog 2nd Anniversary + GIVEAWAY!

19 November

19 Nov is a date that I hold close to my heart because, well as you can tell from the post title, it’s my blog’s anniversary! Hehe, so yes 2 years ago on this date, I published my first post and I have not stopped ever since. Mm I think I’m one of the few bloggers in Singapore who actually updates my blog on a daily basis, so that’s like 730 days of blogging daily!

*pats self on the back :x*

Happy 2nd Year Anniversary!


Heh, I remember when I first started off, I was pretty lost like most but now, I am pretty sure of the direction that I want my blog to go – as a Singapore lifestyle, food, fashion, travel and random news blog because these are the topics that I am really interested in the most (:

Mm, just to share – I am actually a very reserved, quiet person by nature, and an awkward social duckling especially when you don’t know me. This rule won’t apply when I am with Crystal and the bf though because they help to boost my confidence level so I do get a bit crazy sometimes – especially when I’m with Crystal, hahahhahaha! Anyway, that’s why I’m very glad to have social media because I get to express myself freely via my blog, Facebook page and Instagram (@mitsueki) through my words and pictures. Oh and er, email communication is still the best way to reach me; though yes I am very slow at replying 😡

Blogging Highlights & Achievements in 2014!

Despite all that, surprisingly this year has been very good to me, and I had so many wonderful opportunities and experiences!

Some major blogging highlights and achievements from this year include:

  1. Being named as one of the top bloggers / lifestyle bloggers in Singapore by The Smart Local & The Influencer Network
  2. Selected as Lenovo Singapore Social Influencer and sponsored a Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8
  3. Went on my first staycation (blogging about it soon…) – my prize for winning the Frank by OCBC Blog & Win Contest
  4. Selected to be Brands Singapore Game On Blogger partner during the World Cup
  5. Was sponsored a trip to Legoland Malaysia courtesy of WTS Travel
  6. Sponsored a half day tour during my trip to Japan by TripleLights
  7. Had a Eggs Benedict dish named after me, called Daphne’s Egg-citing Benedicts at Hotel RE! (Quote DAPHNE to enjoy 10% off your total bill!)
  8. Selected to be Maku Store Singapore’s Preferred Blogger (Located at Bugis Junction, and yes, readers get 15% off there!)
  9. Lost 9KG thanks to my TCM slimming sponsor (Han Dian TCM) so I have been more confident to take my OOTDs on Instagram (@mitsueki)

Very very thankful for all these opportunities and I fervently hope that my next year in the blogging industry will still be as blessed!(:

My Thanks!

Essentially, my heartfelt thanks go out to a number of people:

  • My bf – My forever suffering OOTD photographer, daily reader, grammar nazi, storage keeper, best friend and boy friend (blah blah blah I can go on forever)
  • Crystal – My constant plus one with great feedback to input during my reviews, friendship, craziness, support and love! (Muahs Muahs Muahs <3)
  • All the PR / marketing companies – There are a number whom I work with very closely with and I’m very thankful for their constant event invites and media drops! You all know who you are – too many to name! ><
  • All my advertisers, brands and companies whom I have collaborated with – thank you for selecting my blog as your advertising platform and choosing to collaborate with me! Always thankful for the opportunities given and I look forward to more!
  • My New Blogger and IG friends – it’s thanks to social media that I have made a number of blogger and ig friends; some who I have yet to meet, but I hope to meet soonish!

To date, I have managed to achieve the goal that I half-heartedly wished for last year in THIS post. Never thought that it was possible but yes, I have achieved my next target of 2 million blog views recently! And this is ONLY made possible with your help! @___@

So yes..

My BIGGEST thanks goes out to YOU, my dear readers!

I am so grateful to all of you for dropping by to read my blog; be it on a daily / irregular basis or as a new reader, and it’s really because of your readership that makes me continue on blogging to make sure that I always have fresh new content for you on a daily basis. Lol, yes you will notice that I do schedule my blog posts so even if I’m away (for a day? A week?); regardless – it’s always constantly updated for your reading pleasure 😛

At the end of it all, I just wanted to let you know that blogging is still my passion and I am going to keep going at it still(:
