One Year Blogiversary + Giveaway

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!!  And happy one year blogiversary to this little blog!  I can’t believe it’s been a year since I took a leap of faith and started this blog.  Since then, I’ve connected with many other bloggers, enjoyed getting to know my readers, and took over the High Five for Friday linkup (with 3 of my good blogging friends) from one of the bloggers who inspired me to start blogging in the 1st place!  How’s that for a 1st year?!  It’s been fun developing my blogging style, and figuring out what I liked layout-wise for the blog.


For those of you who are new around here–or for those of you who may have missed some of these–here’s some of my favorite posts from the past year.  The titles are pretty descriptive, so you can pick and choose if you’d like to read any of them:

Welcome to Bright on a Budget (the post that started it all!)
Bright [Online Shopping] on a Budget: Ebates (don’t shop online without it!)
High Five for Friday 05.01.14 (an early H54F post)


This outfit is old and I couldn’t find a similar pair of pants to link-up, but you can find these adorable shoes on sale here for $19.99!

Finally, I want to give a huge THANK YOU to all of you for reading my blog and being the driving force that keeps it going.  As a way to express my appreciation, I wanted to do a giveaway of some of my favorite things–a $25 Target giftcard, a Salem Swank bangle (you may have seen mine on Instagram), and 2 NYX Butter Glosses.  Good luck!!!

Today’s photos are by April Brooks. April is a friend of mine who does photography on the side.  If you like her work and would like to get in touch with her, please send me an email at brightonabudget@gmail.com!

I’m linking up with the girls at Tuesday Talk and Rachel at Garay Treasurers for Bloggers Who Inspire Me.
