2012: year in review

December 30, 2012
I can't believe we have only one day left in 2012. It has been an amazing year for me. I travelled a lot, I had an amazing time in my last year of high school, I graduated and I've come to love my family and boyfriend even more. It will be hard to top this but I'm going to start 2013 with a positive mind. 

And don't forget, I've started this blog ofcourse! I've met some awesome people already and I hope to enjoy this blogging adventure for a long time. I'm ashamed I only shared one out of the four trips I took the past year but I'll get to it eventually. Here's a little recap of what happened. 

I started my blog and had my very first post. I also started a bunch of features like motivating monday, list of the month and le petit me. I shared a bit about my graduation and I took my first ever outfit shots (and some more). Well, my boyfriend did! Speaking of my boyfriend, we were together for two and a half years here. Now it's almost three years! I got really excited when I got nominated for a Liebster award.

My parents bought me an iPhone for my birthday! My boyfriend took me to a beautiful place full of roses and even more exciting, we went to Disneyland Paris. I joined the What to Wear team for the first time! Also, I told about shaving part of my head. Further, I got drawn and I shared the first part of my trip to London! Oh yeah, silly pictures by the way. Long time since I've shared one! 

I started September by sharing part two of my trip to London and talking about my school life. I took my first outfit pictures where people could actually walk by (which was kind of nervewracking for me). I started another 'feature' where I talk about something while being completely honest and not omitting anything. I started with the story of how I got my (naked) cat. Oh and not to forget, I had my very first guest post. And I celebrated my birthday ofcourse.

Since I turned 19 years old in September, I shared a 20 before 20 list. I'll soon show you guys an update on how I'm doing. Since one of my goals was reading, I shared some of my favorite books as well. I moved in to a dorm room when I started university and I show how it looks. Also, I started a new snail mail project which was really fun to do. And now for the most exciting part of October: I got inked

We don't actually 'celebrate' halloween that much but this is something I would wear. We took pictures with my boyfriend's dog and I made a stamp myself (and used it on a tee). I shared some of my Instagram pictures. Oh and I made a list of random things that annoy me. 

A picture from my second guest post.

Not much happened this month because I have to study for my exams. I did take more outfit pictures, as well as for the what to wear series. For what to wear on a roadtrip, I tried shooting them myself with a tripod and they're my favorite pictures ever actually. I passed a little 'milestone' with my 100th post and I decided to leave the what to wear series because it's hard to commit to something while you're so busy with school. My last post was what to wear for Christmas morning

I hope you guys liked this recap and I hope to start the new year fresh and clean. I have let myself down a little by not posting as much as I intended to these last months so I really hope to change that. What were some of your most important moments in 2012? (life and blogwise)
