5 years of galsgoss πŸ’•βœ¨

Five fucking years. What the hell?!

I can’t believe I’ve been writing this blog and I am now referred to as galsgoss for the last five years of my life lol.

When I started this blog it was on a complete whim when I still worked in Tesco, serving my best looks in head to toe bakery whites – a fashion blog being the obvious next step, no?

I always had a shopping problem (I blame my mum) and knew I was destined to do something in this line of work so this was the first little feel of that I really had. I worked really hard on my blog, writing at least two posts a week. Back then it was more of a thing to write than it was to post a photo to Instagram every day. My insta was full of my mirror OOTDs from my days off. I maybe should have kept them mirror selfies up, I could have been the next smyth sisters πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ.

Fast forward on some time and I started to get involved in some events in Belfast. Belfast fashion week being the first and foremost. Thankfully for Cathy Martin I was able to join the fab community of Belfast bloggers and meet some of my best friends that I have today.

The following year I took a leap of faith and accepted a job in topshop. A step back in terms of money and experience but I knew this was a risk I had to take. Within 6 months I was signed off as a team leader and within the following year I accepted a temporary position as personal shopping assistant. Again a role I knew was a slight step back and it wasn’t an easy 9 months to complete let me tell you but I got on with it and knew it would all pay off.

The minute I joined topshop I knew i wanted to be a personal shopper, the minute I was in the department I knew this was what I was meant to be doing and as it was only a mat cover role i knew some changes were going to happen. I bit the bullet and expressed interest in moving to another city for the role. Low and behold (without yapping on any further) I interviewed for a shopper role in London and April 2019 I moved to the big smoke.

When I sat down to write this post I was thinking what do I really have to say, I defiantly haven’t became some Instagram superstar, I haven’t worked with 100 different brands or have the following I would like but when I read all of the above I realise i wouldn’t be where I am today without galsgoss. I’ve been so lucky that my career and hobby if you will, coincide so well. I have been to some amazing events, I have worked with some amazing brands and I have met some of the best people. I’ve created a YouTube channel, I’ve watched my Instagram develop slowly but surely and know that this year I am going to put my all into becoming as successful and happy as I can be.

So a massive thank you to everyone who made it to the end of this post lol and to everyone who has been with me since the Thursday ootds back in 2015, I am so grateful I still have the passion and support to work on my little platform.

Here’s to another 5 years.

Speak soon,

Lotsa love

Its really just a little thank you to each and every single one of you for taking the time to read anything I have wrote, look at any picture I have uploaded or subscribed to my blog. It has turned into an unbelievable passion of mine and I have been lucky enough to have had amazing support and love from everyone around me.

not always easy, but luckily enough I have had no real bother in finding things to tell you gals, or stories to share with you all over the last year. it really has became a thing in my day to day life where I am like ” that will be good for the blog.”  I have over 3500 amazing followers across my social media sites and galsgoss has had over 25000 views! these sortta stats and results really help the drive in blogging as much as possible!

so anyway I wont chat on much more, just a serious thank you from the heart to everyone who’s read my blog, everyone who’s kept encouraging me throughout, my amazing little photographer friends and all the local businesses and brands who have supported me!
