The Week When My Blog Turned 4

It's been four years since I wrote the first post on this little blog of mine. Four years! Can you believe it? I certainly can't. I won't be getting all mushy mushy again, since there's been more than enough of those kind of posts on here recently, but I can't not think about where my life would be heading right now if I'd never started blogging. Would I still be in school? Would I be moving to London anyway? Would becoming a makeup artist or setting up my own online store even cross my mind? Would I dare to put up a video of me talking into a camera for the world to see? Probably not. Most definitely not. I was a very different person four years ago. Sure I was interested in beauty, traveling and dozens of other things I'm still interested in now, but I had never imagined my life taking such a strong turn. All I can say is, thank god I was bored out of my mind and had no friends on September 20th 2010, when I decided to set up The Puzzle of Sandra's Life. And thank god all of you decided to come along for the ride. Thank you!

Not only did my blog celebrated its fourth birthday this week, but my youtube channel also reached a lovely milestone - 2000 subscribers. That's one small step for man the youtube community, one giant leap for mankind Sandra. :)

iPhone 6 is definitely one of the hottest topics right now. I'm totally jumping on the bandwagon this time around and getting Apple's new release myself. I'm sick and tired of my barely functional Samsung, which has been driving me insane for the past year, so I'm finally making the switch from Android to iOS. Gasp, shock, horror! I know, the Android lovers probably think I'm insane, but I honestly don't know what the 'Android is so much better' hype is all about. It's crap and I can prove it to you. Anyway, I've been an Apple fan for as long as I can remember, but never had the opportunity to get my hands on an iPhone. The mobile network I have a contract with released them only about a year ago in my country, when my hopes for my current phone were still somewhat high. I'm more than ready to welcome a new member of the Apple family into my life now, though. While I'm impatiently waiting for the suckers to release it in my country, I'm watching and reading everything and anything about it. The most interesting video I've stumbled upon is Casey Neistat's 'Black Market Takes Over the iPhone 6 Lines'. Remember the days when excited tech geeks and hipsters were standing in lines for days just to get their hands on the latest iPhone release? Apparently, this is not the case anymore. They were replaced by totally different crowds of people. See what I'm talking about here.

I think it's time to start sharing some love over here on my blog! Recently, I started noticing that the blogger/youtube community became quite cliquey and not a lot of people support each other anymore, unfortunatelly. The same huge bloggers and youtubers are being mentioned all the time, but there's so many more fantastic people who create wonderful content out there! One of them is Alex, a person behind Beautyosaurus Lex. I've been really enjoying watching her videos lately. I love the quality of her videosas well as her personality, so if you haven't heard about her yet, go check out her channel.



  1. congrats on blogoversary and 2000 subbies :D <3

  2. Wow, 4 years! Congratulations on your 2000 subscribers too! xx

  3. Congrats, you're such an inspiration!!

  4. Čestitke za 4 leta in 2000 subscriberjev :) Pa super ideja za Youtuber of week, sem ravno v fazi iskanja novih, manjših Youtuberjev, ker sem se po pravici že naveličala teh '' velikih zvezd''.

  5. Čestitke za obletnico in 2000 subscriberjev. :) You deserve it. :)
    Pa vso srečo v Londonu, komaj čakam, da vidim videe od tam. :)
    Se pa strinjam s Sanjo, jaz sem se že tudi naveličala teh velikih Youtuberjev in jih niti ne gledam več toliko, edino tvoje videe še, tako da je tale ideja res super, da vsak teden omeniš novega Youtuberja, ki ga še mogoče ne poznamo. :)

  6. Čestitke in če ne bi začela pisat. Jaz ne bi gledala čudovitih objav iz potovanj (:

  7. 4 years! Congratulations Sandra!!! :) You deserve all these subscribers, readers and even more! :) Your blog is one of the most well-maintained, well-written and real blogs out there! Many more years to come, yes?

    1. Thank you Sharina! Your comment totally made my day. I'm not gonna lie, I currently feel a bit down as far as blogging and youtube go, but I'm sure I'll snap back. I hope it's just my very persistent cold that's messing with my head and energy levels, haha. So, yes, hopefully there are many more years to come. :)
