September the first is Discotheque Confusion's first birthday. The last 12 months have flown by so quickly, but at the same time, it's pretty funny looking back at my older posts and comparing them to the posts that I publish now. To mark 365 days (so far) of the blog, I'll be 'hosting' an exciting week of posts because everyone loves an extended birthday celebration, don't they?

The collage above is made from magazine editorials that were around at the time. If any of you are feeling especially geeky, and feel like telling me which magazines they're from (September 2006) then go for it, and you can have an extra party bag (ahem).

I'd like to thank my parents, my manager, my ballet teacher, my singing teacher, my violin teacher, my synchronised swimming teacher, God, and my fans...

And without going all Halle Berry, I want to thank all of you who read this, because reading your feedback and funny comments always makes me smile, and gives me a reason to do this. Especially Coco (best blogger buddy, ha), Cool Like Chloe (I'm absolutely gutted that her blog came to an end this month), Alluretone, FashionOrgasm for all inspiring me and being cooland of course my first readers (dusk&summer, I ♥fashion, fashion? yes please (who I'll always remember as my first "encourager", even if she went M.I.A.).

Also thanks to those readers who don't comment, I know that dulcie reads, but isn't a blogger for example, it would be great to hear from you all more often, I'd love to know who you are!

I'm planning on recreating one of my old posts (whooa, circa 2006, retro..) so let me know if you have/had any favourites and do let me know! I'm also giving you free reign on deciding what will be the finale post (next saturday) so let me know what you want to read. It could be about Models of the Moment, Muses, Celebrity fashion hits/disasters, IT Bags...anything! So scibble away and get creative with your comments.
I know there are lots of other anniversaries (is that the plural?..) coming up, like My Teen Vogue and Coco's Tea Party, so happy birthday y'all!

...but most of all, happy first birthday D I S C O T H E Q U E C O N F U S I O N !
