It feels so odd looking over some of my past outfit photos for this blog because it feels like i took them so long ago, and apart from the fact that my hair definitely grew quite a bit this year, i feel so has my personal style. In the past couple of years i was stylistically influenced by rebellion and i guess the freedom of becoming an adult, but now that i've experimented with almost every trend (i even did the rockabilly trend guys!) I feel like i'm coming more into myself. Mixing and matching what I like, rather than what is in trend has allowed me to create a wardrobe that is becoming more and more functional each day. Fashion is great, but so is practicality and I think that is one of the main things i learned this year!
But what a year it has been for my little corner of the internet! After the Company Blog awards (I was shortlisted thanks to all you fine folk!) things really picked up on the blogging front for me, and if you missed it, here are a few notable posts from this year. I worked with WAREHOUSE on their #PostcardsFromShoreditch project. I was featured on NYMAG.COM. I attended my first London Fashion Week and made some super friends along the way. Every little success that has come as part of blogging is due to your support, because without readers i probably woulnd't be blogging! I love all the encouraging comments, e-mails and tweets i've recieved over the past year, particularly those on my more sombre lifestyle posts, such as this one here, in regards to loving oneself. All your comments really do brighten up my day, both constructive and encouraging.
I don't really have any set in stone New Year's resolutions this year because I find that they can sometimes be limiting to an extent, but one thing I will make sure to do are weekly round up's. Although they aren't as popular as my fashion based posts, I thoroughly enjoy my little Sunday Posts because they allow me to remember and reflect on a week that i'd have probably forgotten about once the stresses of Monday's workload rolls by, so I find it's a nice way to look back on the weeks happenings and just write freely about something that isn't just about what's on my face, legs or feet.
Anyway, I wish you all a very Happy New Year and I wish love and light to you and your loved ones! I hope 2014 is a prosperous, positive and joyous year for every single one of you!
All my love and hugs,
