I may be 2 days late, but here's my year-ender post! Okay, since we're all of legal age naman na (I hope!) I'd be honest, I welcomed 2013 tanked as a skunk (not skank ha haha). Believe me when I say I only do occasional drinking, and New Year's eve is one of the few occasions when I go all out. So here's the epic night that was! Sabi nga ng mga friends ko, kasi may pinagdadaanan! Lols. (Mich and I had a huge fight a few hours before midnight, so there!). Haha.
wire headband by Anagon! Love it!
And what is a year-end post without a quick flashback of the year that was? 2012 for me was one helluva roller coaster ride. Crazy-Beautiful to be exact. I had more ups than downs, but neither were futile nor uncherished. Cheers to a year that was, and to an amazing year that will be!:)
After 1 hour...
....okay, I give up. I can't really sum up the awesomeness of 2012 with photos from past blog posts. Too many! But, here's a quick rundown:
1.) Best year in fashion (blogging and styling) - I can't even translate into words my gratitude for all the brands, sponsors, magazines, people I worked with and trusted me enough last year. I can honestly say it was the busiest year in my entire life. I can't foresee the future, I don't know if the wind will still blow in my favor this year, but I'm really thankful for EVERYTHING. Thank you Lord.
2.) More travels! - So glad I found the best travel buddy in Mich! Got to visit some amazing places last year (HK, Macau, Singapore, Ilocos, Baguio, Cambodia etc.) and I can't wait to explore more this year... I hope. :) Korea naman? Or China? Let's!
3.) Filipinized - got more involved in nationalistic projects last year and also immersed myself in Pinoy history and culture. Remember the Carlos Celdran tours? Ilocos? Postura project? Miss Match event? Global Pinoy?:)
4.) Blog friends - from a mere hobby, blogging has transformed into an industry overnight. It's now very rare to find genuine, kind hearted people in the blogging realm. If you only know how dirty it became in just a year. It's sad. :( But for hobbyists like me, I'm just happy I found blog friends who share the same sentiments and enthusiasm in blogging as me. Stay amazing friends!:)
5.) Bloggers United - need I say more? hehe. Coz it just keeps getting better every year!:)
6.) Ends & New Beginnings - last year was a ghastly year for some. There were countless tragedies, storms, deaths. I lost a few people last year. Good ones. I know a lot of people who lost someone to 2012 too. :( BUT! At the end of every storm is a rainbow, every dark cloud has a silver lining, a smile after every tear. Death, after ripping our hearts becomes a celebration of life. We will never forget.:)
2012 was a blur, and so was New Year's Eve. But I'm glad I spent it AGAIN with people who has been in my life since forever.:) And yes, we have a group shirt. We're cheesy like that. Photos! (play Katy Perry's Waking Up in Vegas as background music, hehe)
