New Year, New Blog

January 10, 2012

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been so long!

You know how life sometimes sucks you in, and you don’t even notice what you’ve been missing? That’s what I feel has happened over the last few months.  No excuses, but now I am even more motivated to blog because I have lots of stuff to blog about!

I guess I can do a brief re-cap of what I’ve been up to, and will post more details in the coming weeks.

Since my last post, I:

celebrated my Birthday with some close friends, while being spoiled rotten with presents (hello new Kobo!)

disguised myself as Waldo for Halloween

Bought a brand new (to me) car!!!

Went to the most amazing Feist concert

Watched my friends get married!

And had a quiet family Christmas (where I was again spoiled with presents)

A lot has happened in my life, and I can’t wait to share it on this blog. I will also be changing the look of the blog, because as nice as it is, its not really me. Look forward to that and more regular (hopefully) posts!



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!!!!!!!!
