And the New Year begins. Hello 2012, nice to meet you.

2011 and I have parted ways. He was great and all - I'll remember him fondly for many reasons. But our time came and went. It came and went quite quickly, actually.


People like to reflect at this time of year. They like to look back and reminisce and try to think of ways to better themselves.

Statistically speaking - most people reflect on their health, their wealth and their happiness and resolve to improve, or maintain them. Also statistically speaking, most people tend to fail. 

I don't really subscribe to the New Year's resolution. I think if you want to change something in your life you shouldn't procrastinate and wait for the calendar to switch to suddenly improve yourself.

So I suppose that's my own type of resolution.

I want to stop procrastinating and do the things I want to do when I want to do them. No more waiting around. No more "one day..." and more "today..."

If you happen to have some resolutions, I wish you luck with them - if you truly want to accomplish them, I'm sure you will. And if you don't, perhaps you might discover something even more important that needs doing this year.


Much as I don't subscribe to the resolution bit - I am rather taken with the reflection bit. 

Cue the nostalgia.

This year I started this blog. I laughed so hard I cried. I cried so hard I laughed. 

I went away on a Spanish retreat. I survived 3 weeks without technology. I survived 3 weeks without my parents. 

I learned to better appreciate those same parents. 

I rediscovered my passions. I discovered new passions. I still have straight A's.

I bought too many pairs of shoes. I learned I can never have too many shoes. (There might be a photospam of shoes...)

I wore makeup on a daily basis. I went without makeup on a daily basis. I had ridiculously fun photo shoots with Shayli and Asia.

I had ridiculously fun photo shoots with my mum. 

I made some mistakes. I did some things right. I lived this past year, I didn't just survive...


Speaking of which, did you survive all that nostalgia?

Well done.

The final outfit of 2011 now posted, my nostalgia now sated, and my to-do list finished - I look forward to the new year.


Best wishes for an amazing ride in 2012~
