Today Marks 1 Year of the Blog (Giveaway Alert)!

One year ago I launched my website and now a year down the road I could not be happier. So thank you for your support the past year and I would love it if you looked back at one year of NicaDoubleyou with me!


Only seems fitting to use the first picture I have uploaded to WordPress

Let us first look back on some numbers:

  • In one year my blog has been viewed 5.914 times of which there were 2.837 individual visitors which I think is pretty cool.
  • My blogposts received a total of 406 likes by fellow WordPress users.
  • My blog has been visited from 58(!!) different countries of which the Netherlands, the United States and the United Kingdom rank top 3.
  • In one year I have posted 90 individual blogs (this one being the 91st).
  • My blog is most often visited on Sunday and the most popular time is 9:00.


It is hard for me to grasp the idea that I have been doing this for a year now and still I love what I am doing. I can personally tell that I have grown over the past year and I am still very happy with taking the plunge. I realise that to some my blog might not be very significant or anything but I love that I have my own little space on the internet where I can write down my thoughts and opinions and share those with others. The past year it has given me so much energy to hear people say that they enjoy reading my work or to log onto Bloglovin and see that people have read my articles. I hope that I will be able to continue to interest you guys with my pieces of writing. For me the cherry on top of it all was becoming a Social Ambassador for Etos because it is my first time working together with a brand. I am so grateful and thankful for all the opportunities I have had the past year and all the support, thank you!

In the Netherlands we have this thing where you have to provide a treat on your birthday, which is why I want to organize a giveaway to celebrate with you the one year anniversary of this blog! One lucky winner will receive the following:


John Frieda Extra Strong Hairspray, Nivea Facial Cleansing Mousse, Nivea Sensitive Day Cream, Nivea Hairmilk Shampoo, Nivea Nourishing Bodylotion, Nivea Nourishing Hand Moisturizer, Nivea Men Cream, Body Shop Argan Oil Showergel, Lavender Showergel, Etos Cool Mint Toothpaste, John Frieda Beach Blonde Shampoo, Etos Basic Medium Toothbrush, and Etos Red Nailpolish.

The following rules apply to this giveaway:

  1. You have to live in the Netherlands, given the weight of the box and my status as a student I am not able to afford international shipping.
  2. You have to comment on this blogpost what your favourite piece of writing on this blog has been the past year.
  3. You have to follow me either on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Bloglovin (the more apply the bigger your chance) (you can find these at the bottom of the page).
  4. There will not be any correspondence over the winner and the entry deadline is the 10th of September after which I will personally get in contact with the winner.
  5. Of course I want you to enjoy these products as much as I have but I am in no way responsible for any possible allergic reaction, allergy or injury resulting from receiving these gifts. I can not be held accountable for any problems involving this giveaway (do not worry these are brand new, unused products but for legal reasons I have to mention this).

Once again thank you so much for helping me on this journey and for your support and I hope to see you back on the blog soon!

    Congrats on your anniversary! Do I have one favorite peace of writing? Not really. I like your writings about political issues, about your experiences going solo on subday, about yourself. Sometimes they’re very serious, sometimes hilarious. I just like the way you write. Go with it girl and enjoy being ambassador for Etos! 💃💄👟💍👜🎒🐱🌺🍀🐈
