A year in review..

January 10, 2011

So 2010 was a pretty amazing year, there’s no denying it. Some years I am glad it’s all over, and some years I wish they could continue. I hope 2011 can top 2010, though it does set the bar high.

The beginning of the year was one big party with the entire world invited, as the 2010 Winter Olympic games were in my back yard. It truly was a once in a life time experience to see the city alive, meet new people, and be so proud to be Canadian. Here are some of my favorite pictures from February…

This photo is one of my favorite moments of the games. Canada had just won gold in Men’s hockey on the last day of the Olympics. My manager let me leave work early to go down town to celebrate. The streets were full of people, proud to be Canadian. Even people from other countries joined the party and we welcomed them with open arms.

The next exciting adventure last year was when I went to LA with a friend for a week. We got to explore Universal studio’s, go to an AMAZING Harry Potter store, and just take a break from life. Here are some pictures from August…

It was an amazing trip. I truly love California and I can’t wait to go back! I want to go to San Fransisco next!!

Speaking of traveling, I am doing a pretty good job of checking off the city’s I want to visit. Back in June I applied to Teen Vogue Fashion U, and on September 15th I woke up to an e-mail saying I had been accepted!!! I flew myself across the country for one of the most amazing weekends of my life. It was truly inspiring career wise and such a thrill to be surrounded by fashion everywhere I went. Here is my October…

So I can say I had a truly amazing, monumental, thrilling, and special year. Not only did I also turn the magical age of 21, I met the most amazing boy in the world <3. Plus I was able to travel, see old friends, buy my first car, graduate school, and the list could go on!!

Here’s to a great year ahead, may it be just as amazing as the last!!!!!!!!

L.A., check!

September 30, 2010

Simply put, I love traveling! There are many places in the world I want to explore, and I decided to start with some close to home.

I visited LA in August as a post graduation celebration. That and my secret obsession with Harry Potter found me a travel buddy that introduced me to this amazing Harry Potter store. We had an amazing time and I would go back to LA in a heart beat if someone handed me a plane ticket (non-stop please, we took 3 flights to get there and I’m now sick of planes).

here is our hotel, located just down the hill from universal Studios

and here is Universal City walk, where we spent a few nights wandering around all the shops, eating yummy food and just enjoying our vacation

and this is all the Harry potter loot I bought. I can’t wait to go to the theme park in Florida next year!!!!

old school Universal Studios sign

on the last day I went to the grove to check out the farmers market. it was so cute and I bought some real food! (fresh grapes) plus I got to do a bit of shopping 🙂

I must say, I really enjoyed California. Next time I think I will drive, that way I can explore a lot more along the way and in the city.  Until then I’m off to the other side of America, New York City 🙂

I will always love you, Hollywood…………………………………………..
