This past Sunday, January 15th, marked the 4th Birthday of Hello Gorgeous.  I can’t even believe it’s been four whole years since Matt & I embarked on this incredible blog and YouTube journey together.

Happy Birthday Hello Gorgeous Angela Lanter 4 Year Blog Anniversary

Let’s be honest, I’m always looking for an excuse to celebrate with cake…  That’s normal, right?!  Really though, four years of being my own boss and living out my dream job is definitely cause for celebration.  I wanted to take a few moments to thank those who have truly made Hello Gorgeous what it is today.

Of course, Matt is the #1 person on my thank you list.  He encouraged me from the beginning.  Matt even came up with the name, Hello Gorgeous.  He takes my photos, films and edits my videos and is my partner in everything I do.  All in all, we make a really great team.  My best decision in life was marrying this handsome man of mine.

One of my earliest decisions as a blogger was when I chose to be represented professionally.  My reps, Lauren & Dustin, have easily been my best business decision to date.  They have made my life as a blogger and YouTuber so much easier and just overall been a blessing.  Love you both!

Whenever you see a website or design update to Hello Gorgeous, Chase is always the one behind the work.  He is my go-to and I’ve recommended him to basically every one of my blogger friends.  Chase, I honestly don’t know where I’d be without you!

Then there’s my cousin Jenny, who helps me keep my sanity behind the scenes when things get crazy.  Also, I can’t forget my sweet friend Julie, who’s not only my sounding board in all areas of my life but just overall a total boss babe.  I often say that I want to come back as Julie in my next life, lol.  Oh, I can’t forget my mom, who just so happens to be the original Gorgeous Girl herself!

Last, but certainly not least, I want to thank each one of you incredible Gorgeous Girls.  There would be no Hello Gorgeous if it weren’t for each one of you continuing to support me and read/watch my work.  You keep me motivated to continue on this journey.  I love creating new posts and videos.  I get excited to wake up each morning and get to work.  I love what I do and I especially love who I do it for.  Thank you so much for being a part of my Gorgeous Family.

In honor of our 4 year mark, I’d like to remember a few of my favorite posts we’ve created:

Quite honestly, my favorite YouTube video to date is one I haven’t even posted yet…  It’s scheduled to go live in the next two weeks, and trust me, you’re going to love it!

Again, thank you for being a part of the Gorgeous Family.  I can’t wait for another year on this journey with you!

What I’m Wearing:

Pink Floral Dress (Under $60!)  //  essie Nail Polish in “Smokin'”  //  Ardell Wispies Lash  //  Jouer Liquid Lipstick in “Dulce De Leche”  //  Birthday Cake  //  Flower Bouquet

    Congratulations on the fourth birthday for you and Matt and all those who work on Hello Gorgeous.
    Even if I am already older and only half a year the blog “track”, I find great what you / her makes. Much is very nice.
    Matt’s photos and videos are great.
    This is understated.
    For me they are awesome. He is genious.
    Matt has the eye / look for the beautiful, for the essential. He is a multitalent.
    But who do I say that. You know it.
    The video of your “move” in summer is great.
    I will never come to the west coast of America myself. But so I can witness it and see how it is, if one goes there long.
    Recordings with the drone over the vines (the music is supi), high in the trees of the Redwood, or the ride over the Golden Gate bridge into the fog or clouds, the sun is really as big as Matt is Water drops and rejoices, that is all sooo beautiful.
    When Matt makes the nonsense on the cliff, it sounds like he / she speaks German. First he laughs, then he says to you “das war´n Witz” and you answer “typisch”. I know you do not speak German, but it always sounds like this again and again. I know what you really say and it is very, very similar.
    How did you get Ahsoka to Vancouver? Have you spared the car journey?
    The end of the video – super!
    Boh, I did not want to write that much.
    I hope the translation (Google translator) is readable.
    Greetings from Berlin

    Congrats on four years on Hello Gorgeous! ?
    I absolutely love all your blogs and always look forward to reading more. I can never wait to see what new designs and clothing you put out there. Love your style! ❤

    Since were on this topic……Ive been having this question on my mind for some time now and just wasnt sure when to ask or if it was too personal. Though I figured, now would be a great time, as we’re celebrating 4 years of Hello Gorgeous!…… What is it like being a blogger and how do you make a living out of it?
    Thanks! ?

    I’m curious to here about who in the you tube world inspires you? Whose blogs or videos do you admire/ look to for fun or inspiration? Even non style related content. I would love to hear about your favs.
