Happy Blogiversary to Sensual Appeal

Happy Monday dearies! It just so happens that exactly a year ago (March 11, 2012) was the day I first started this blog. My first post was less than impressive and it was clear I had no idea what I was doing. My first ever recipe posted (Rustic Pear Apple Tart) was actually very good although the photography was definitely not up to par.

It’s been a great year! I have to say I am extremely happy to have made the decision to start blogging. It provided me a great outlet to express myself, learn to bake and cook (kinda), and feel support from an online community that is truly there for you!

I want to thank each and every one of you for being there and for reading Sensual Appeal. Whether you’ve been here since the start or you stumbled upon my blog only recently, I am grateful for every single one of you! Without you, Sensual Appeal would not be here right now.

Also, I hope you are sick of this theme and blog design because I will be doing a full blog redesign very soon! That’s right, Sensual Appeal will be getting a face lift. If you saw my vlog and post from Friday (“I am giving up“) I discussed how my mentality is changing and with it the direction of this blog. I am now going to focus on things that are more relevant to a good life: being happy, satisfied, and mindful. I encourage you to check out my previous post with the video to see where I’m coming from about this change.

And now last but not least, I think this calls for an opportunity to showcase some of my previous posts. There are many blog posts within the corners of this blog that have gotten lost and I’d like to showcase some of the lost posts as well as some popular picks.

Thoughtful Posts:

Our perception of attractiveness is manipulated
Dealing with Anxiety
Looking at yourself as a motivator
Personal Space and why we need to touch more

Food Posts:

Pear and Currant Bran Muffins (vegan)
Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge
Baked Muffin Egg
2 Minute Autumn flavored peanut butter
Molten Lava-esque mug cake
What is Kefir? And why is it a wonderful health food?
What foods I refuse to eat that others love?

What vitamins do I take?
How to make your workouts more effective?
Why you should get massages regularly?

Thank you again for all of your continued support!

Stay tuned for a yummy recipe post tomorrow! 🙂

  20. Yay! Happy Bloggy Birthday Kammie! I can’t help it…I hate the blog + anniversary term people use all the time…it sounds so weird! And really, I mean, you didn’t MARRY your blog…you CREATED it! So it’s a bloggy BIRFFFFFDAY! 😉 I’m so excited to hear about the new changes about to happen! I’ve been wanting to give KMB a good makeover for sometime now, but I just haven’t had the time or the money.

    And seriously? Those pics of the pear tart are gorgeous! Actually, I really want to try making it! So glad you linked back to it!

    • You should definitely try it! It was my first pie/tart and I think I did a good job 🙂 And thanks lovie, hopefully in the next month, I can have the new design. And I LOVE your blog design and always have but I know what you mean about the time + money thing. I just think mine is too pink lol and the changes I’m doing require a new design I think.

  21. Yayayay, happy blog birthday! I’ve loved watching you grow and develop you blog and I can’t wait to see what the next year holds 🙂
