Hashtagged-Blog Anniversary 2016

*Drum rolls please*

Who cracks a blog article with drum rolls? Well, anyone who is completely stoked about blog anniversary and can’t contain their excitement-that’s me!


This August marks first anniversary of Hashtagged! When I say “Our Anniversary” I mean it, because my readers and I have been in this together. I won’t say  I started this blog as a hobby, or had no idea it would earn such love blah blah blah, because no! I didn’t start this as a hobby! It was a planned venture based on mutual interests of me and two of my friends *who unfortunately couldn’t carry on with me till here*.  But, throughout this time, I worked with some really great people, made zillions of mistakes-only to learn from them, and tried bringing you engaging content. The beginning was quite humble, but with your love and support, Hashtagged has now become my full time job, and I never felt as professionally empowered as I do now!


To express my over excitement about this anniversary, I am running a small giveaway contest. There will be one lucky winner who would win the following items: *Thanks to our sponsors for such lovely stuff*

A quirky wall painting by Vintage Nerd

I recently came across this Pakistani online art shop which has some really chic vintage art & design pieces ranging from fashion to home decor products. This quirky abstract art painting is on board for the winner in this contest!

Discount Vouchers by Tryst Salon & Spa

Tryst is the new spa and salon in town earning compliments for its unique vintage air and known to its hair treatment services-specially Brazilian blowout . If you want to know more about my experience with Tryst, read the review here.

Trsyt is offering special discount vouchers on various services for this contest, so if you win it, you would have two options: share the win and set a spa date with your bffs, or be as selfish as a toddler with candy and avail all the vouchers on self pampering.

Oriflame Cosmetics

I have two gorgeous makeup products from oriflame for the winner. The first is matte pure color intense lipstick in the shade of Daring Berry and the second is glossy, high shine nail polish in this exciting shade of Mauve Mirage! Yes, I know! Getting free makeup totally lifts your feet off the ground out of euphoria! Doesn’t it?
