A Look Back at 2011

2011 has been a fun and exciting year for me. I haven't had a year like 2011 in along time. It was filled of lots of adventures and new beginnings for me and my blog. I want to take this time to look back at my 2011:

Travels.
I don't think I have traveled this much in a long time. Yes, traveling to two destinations in one year is a lot for me. I don't get a lot of time off of work and I don't make enough to get the opportunity to travel, so being that I got to go away twice (and to new places) was exciting. I'm glad that I was able to have a true vacation in Miami with two of my favorite people: my best friend/roommate from college and my boyfriend.



Then we ate, drank, and ...drank some more in New Orleans where once again I was able to spend it with my favorites this time adding the bf's roommate from college. I'm so lucky to have these people in my life and to be able to spend time with them. I don't get to see my roomie every often since she lives in Chicago so being able to see her and be on vacation with her is truly amazing.





New Friends.
Okay even if we actually really met in 2010 our friendship has grown more over this year. I love her and respect her not only because she is a beautiful person (inside and out) but she is great at what she does. She always has me in mind and vise versa. Pamala from Addkited2Fashion has fastly become my fashion partner in crime!



Fashion and Blogging.
I don't even know where to begin or what to say. Really I want to THANK everyone who has been following this blog and commenting because of you guys I keep going everyday. I really had the most amazing opportunities this year from attending shows at NY Fashion Week in February and covering a couple of shows for Fashionindie.com to volunteering at NY Couture Fashion Week to attending events at such places like Rebecca Minkoff's showroom to gaining a press pass to NY Fashion Week this past September (and upcoming February).

I can't believe the opportunities that I've had besides attending NY Fashion week and being recognized as a member of the press but to be able to work with companies like ARROJO Studio and Cougar Boots (again!). And meeting new people and companies like Luha Boutique.This year has been a world wind for me. I am blessed and thankful for everyone who believes in me and this blog.
