Wohooo! It’s madliofficial’s first anniversary! Can’t belive that it has been a year already! Exactly one year ago, the 12th of August 2015, an enthusiastic Estonian girl was hitting the button “Publish” for the first time! At the time I didn’t really know what I was doing. I wan’t sure if I should write my blog in Estonian or in English? Should I write only product reviews or mix it up with everything that I love? Hahahaaa.. And let’s not forget that I stared madliofficial as a livetravelglow at first. I mean, I do still think that it’s kinda my life motto: to live the fullest, travel as much as possible and glow from inside( that should have been the makeup part in the blog… ha ha 😀 ). At least I grew out of if quite quickly.
If you’re wondering why I didn’t start with the name madliofficial at the beginning, then the reason behind that was the fact that I was embarrassed with my name – Madli. It’s just so damn Estonian name. And I know how hard it is to pronounce it for other people. To my surprise I have even met Estonians who are unable to pronounce my name. So you can imagine how difficult it is for foreigners to try to pronounce it. Which is the main reason I started off with livetravelglow. Until I realised that it’s really childish and I should be proud of my name and use it as my blog name. Well, here you go – story behind the name change 😀
And to celebrate this amazing day I decided to make a Raw Snickers Cheesecake which is vegan, dairy free, gluten-free, sugar-free and paleo all in one! And it tastes delicious! If you’re interested to make some then head over here.
I made it to 2 smaller sized cakes so I could take one with me when I’m visiting my friends. Can’t take a half eaten cake with you can you? 😀 I really recommend you to try this recipe out! It’s just that good!
Let’s finish it up with some bloopers:
Than you for sticking around with me! I’m so looking forward to the future and I promise I will put all my effort to keep you entertained ;). If you have any questions or future post recommendations then do let me know!
