Chloe.Ash Turns 5

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Has it been 5 donkey years already? Wow. This is the longest hobby I’ve stuck to. If you’ve been a long time reader, it means you’ve seen my aging process for the last 5 years, in outlook of life, in appearance, in attitude and in writing. Thank you for sticking around. I’d like to talk about what I’ve learned, what I’ve seen, what I’ve experienced, but my mind is pretty blank at the moment. Perhaps next time.




As tradition calls for it, I’d like to celebrate with a little giveaway, open worldwide. It’s a surprise box! I don’t know what will go in it, but if you know me, you won’t be disappointed. It’ll be open for one week, until April 10. You don’t have to tweet this, or promote this, because it’s NOT about getting new readers. It’s about YOU! You who have been with me. Let’s be selfish. Less people entering, more chance for you. Hahaha!

I’m using Rafflecopter for convenience sake (they will randomly pick a winner for me), so all you have to do is enter your email address (you can do it once every day). Good luck!


Hugs and kisses to all of you, and I hope you had a fun ride like I have.



xoxo Lily

    Congrats on 5 years! Wowzers! HALF A DECADE! That’s certainly worth celebrating and being proud of! Much love and butterscotch squares! 🙂

    • Lily

      Well, if you put it that way. Half a decade sounds really long. Hahahaha!

  • Liz

    Happy 5 years!!!!! I’m really glad that you decided to keep on blogging. I’m not around as much and you’re busy with the kids, but it makes me so happy to interact with you when we do! Love you lots, and cheers to another fabulous 5 years. <3

    • Lily

      Thank you! I don’t know if I’ll still be blogging 5 years later, but never say never, eh? I miss talking to you!

  • Happy anniversary! I am hooked ever since I dropped by into your blog couple years ago, because I love your honest writing. Please keep this longest hobby alive! 😀

    • Lily

      Aaw, thank you so much Yunie 🙂

  • Congratulations on five years!! Wow! So wonderful of you to do this for the sake of your readers.

    • Lily

      Thank you! And yes, my giveaways are for my readers. Hate it when contest vultures start coming in. That’s why I want to keep it low key. What’s the point of getting new subscribers when they’re not interested in your blog, but only interested in freebies? I don’t want those. They’d unsubscribe the minute the giveaway ends!

  • woo hooo 5 amazing years Lily!!! Congrats on keeping it up!! Is it wood or something? Cheers to another 5 even more beautiful years!!

    • Lily

      Thanks Linda. I feel old. 5 years of blogging seems like such a long time. I never thought I’d stay this long!

  • Initially I thought this was going to be ‘It’s been a great 5 years but time to quit’ and I was like no, no,noooo! Haha! Congratulations to 5 years, Lily and wishing many more successful years to come!

    • Lily

      LOL! Yes, that thought did occur to me, because some time last year, I was debating whether or not to continue blogging. Decided to stick it out for a little while longer 🙂

  • Lilly I started reading your blog when it turned two and your husband designed your site and it was really pretty with sparkles at the backdrop =)
    Congratulations Love, you have done well.

    • Lily

      Hi Nida, I remember you! Thanks for sticking around for so long 🙂

  • Kim

    Happy anniversary Lily! I love reading your honest reviews and I love to see your makeup styles 🙂 Cheers to many more beautiful and exciting blogging years Lily!

    • Lily

      Thank you Kim! I tend to gravitate toward the same old boring makeup style though. As long as it’s wearable 🙂 Thanks for being here!

  • Bugs

    Congratulations !!! And many many more 5yrs to come. I have not been commenting for a long time now, after you changed the comment to Disqus or login with Fb or google…

    Sob sob I’m half a footstep late for the giveaway. Good luck everyone !

    • Lily

      Hey Bugs! Miss your comments. Disqus helps me filter out lots of spam, so it’s easier for me to monitor. Don’t worry though. Pay attention because there might be another sneaky one coming up, maybe hidden in regular posts 🙂

  • Congrats on 5 years!! The aging process haha! I look back 4 years and I was a baby! It’s like a photo album I didn’t want ❤️

    • Lily

      LOL thanks lady. You look more beautiful and radiant than you ever have. I think age is a good thing 🙂
