Today is 31st December 2013, the last sunset of this year. 2013 was an happening year for me in terms of relations, job and blogging, I turned out to be more stronger as a person, got more confident and yes HAPPY too(Ma sha ALLAH) and wish it continues for 2014 as well as all the upcoming years of my life ..(In sha ALLAH)
The year started with my engagement. It was 6th Jan 2013 when I made a promise to be with him till my last breath. He came in my life as a friend and I had no clue this friendship will turn into a never ending relationship of love. (Alhumdulillah). So my engagement was an urgent event and we had only one day to prepare for the function. I remember how confused I was regarding my dress, shoes and OMG makeup. But I was happy with my dress and luckily got a good and subtle makeup from a parlor near my home. I think no parlor opens up for a bride too at 10 am in the morning :D.. Oh yes!! it was a day event because my brother in law had to fly back to America.
In January I joined Oriflame Consultancy and got a chance to try some of its products too. My consultancy business didn’t work out much because of less time I gave to it. But over all to be a part of the company was amazing.
March 2013, I changed my job and moved to a new place. It took a hard time to adjust where my start 3 months were quite difficult but ALLAH helped me and I managed to pull through. And Alhumdullilah happy with what I am doing.
With such great things Nida’s Beauty Bag also did really well this year. I come up with more regular blogging and tried new brands. I realized that if one work with honesty, determination and believes in ALLAH, success is guaranteed. People started recognizing me, they appreciated and motivated me to do even more. I made some amazing friends from blogging world and found everyone so loving and encouraging and learned to follow the same behavior with new bloggers. I was honored with 2 awards ‘Versatile Blogger Award’ and ‘Liebster Award‘.
In November, I celebrated my blog’s first anniversary and arranged a small giveaway for my lovely readers. Got a great response again and giveaway was a success too ma sha ALLAH. In November I was contacted by one editor to add some contribution in their newly launched fashion magazine named ‘Ebuzz Magazine’. It was an out of the world feeling to write my first article ever which was then published in Dec 2013 issue. I chose how LOOK CLASSY THIS WINTER.
