Hey guys, this will be my last post of the year! To say goodbye I wanted to share my favourite looks/photos of the year. Btw, I never made a holiday post so I hope you all had a great Christmas weekend. Mine was quiet. My mom and I had lunch and walked around the city to look at the trees and lights, followed by lots of Lady cuddles and treats at home.
It seems like everyone decided 2016 was a shitty year a while ago. Beloved celebrities died, Brexit happened, a racist/sexist/homophobe was elected the president of the USA, and a handful of other unfortunate events took place. It wasn’t all bad though. Really – here’s an archive of positive news from the past year.
For me, 2016 had its fair share of ups and downs. I’d like to say it was a year of growth. Personally and style-wise I took more risks. I tried new silhouettes, styles, and colours. I did things that were out of my comfort zone. I finally got the job I’ve been applying for since graduating college. I think it’s now easier for me to quit things I know aren’t good for me.
With my new job and with the blog I learned new skill sets, and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to learn this year. I got good grades in school, but I’ve realized that I’m a practical learner. I can memorize facts but I only truly learn by doing. This blog is unusual because it started out with me working with photographers, and my boyfriend became the main photographer this year. We still have a lot to learn but I think we’re getting better with every shoot. Also this year was our 5 year anniversary! I think that’s quite an accomplishment in the age of Tinder.
I also have a new thing for little getaways (see my trips to LA, Seattle, and the Sunshine Coast). I used to have the ‘go big or go home’ travel mindset – fly to the other side of the planet or nothing. Not having that option this year, I really cherished my little trips. Even one day in a new place can be the perfect escape, and you don’t always have to go far.
Next year I’ll be able to travel more and I’m so excited. If all goes well, I’ll be able to go on a big trip and plenty of small ones. And hopefully take many amazing photos to share with you. Thank you all so much for your visits and kind comments this year! I wish you the best in 2017, lots of love xx
