5 years (and 500 posts!) of Candyflossoverkill♡ // My most popular posts

Schwarzkopf Live Steel Silver 098 review and before and after
Can you believe I've been blogging for five years?? Although I didn't blog too regularly at first, I've been blogging on this lil corner of the internet for five years as of this august. Even though it's just a hobby, I'm pretty proud of how much things have improved around here (just have a quick glance at my first couple of posts!!) I think I've really stepped up my game, especially in the last couple of years- around halfway in to my year in Japan I bought a camera, invested in a domain and a proper design for the blog, and I spent more time writing more and better posts. And then 500 posts just kind of happened. So to celebrate I thought I'd dredge through the archives and put together a little round up of my most popular posts so far:

Hair dye posts:

Reviews of different hair dyes I've tried are definitely my most popular posts. I try and make my reviews as informative as possible, including before and after pictures and how long it took to fade out (which is something I am always really keen to know when I am researching a new dye to try.) I've tried our a fair few grey hair dyes along with some pink and purple ones. I have a couple more dyes sitting on my shelf at home waiting to be reviewed soon- so I'll be able to crank out some more reviews this summer!

I started off as a fashion blogger, and fashion, lifestyle and haul posts are still my favourite type of content to post for sure. I'm really trying to step up my photography game when it comes to flatlays, but I still have a ways to go. Still, I am pretty pleased with a couple of these:

Of course I blogged a tonne about Japan when I was there, and some of my other travel posts have done fairly well too:

Whilst my own blog has changed a lot, the 'blogosphere' as a whole has changed so much too- with thousands and thousands of amazing creators, youtube, instagram and the whole industry coming in to being. It's so inspiring to watch so many amazing people live their dreams and creating content online for a living! To be part of that in my own little way makes me so so happy! I'm so grateful to everyone who has ever read the blog, and especially those who leave comments- you make my day on the regular. So much love. <3 <3 <3 So here's to another 5 years, eh??

Is there anything you'd like to read from me? I'd love to know! Thanks for reading ♡
-Amy xoxo
