The end of the year is always a time of reflection and planning for me in
the same way that the end of every day, week or month is.
I like to think, mull over things and plan ahead. Ofcourse life is full of surprising
ups and downs so there is only so much you can do.
Here is what
 2012 Taught Me:

To unapologetically  be who I am.
To do frequent friend culls
much like Genevas  infamous
wardrobe cull
because not all
 friends need
to be in your life!

One mans
bucket is
another mans…

Picture c/o Alex

That I am the master of
my own happines and
in order to attain it
I must take steps
 to achieve it.
You can teach
an old dog new tricks!
(I taught myself to sketch digitally>>,
do a smokey eye,
cook a chicken and
I tried action painting
ala Jackson Pollock)
It’s okay that I don’t have a head to mouth filter. Its best to be honest anyway!
Sometimes its
okay to channel
 your inner Kanye
 and wear
 leather pants
with trainers.
You can’t please everyone
and not everyone will like you
 and thats okay!
Friends can become
 and strangers can
just as easily
become friends.
Not to be so hard
on myself when I fail
and to treat disappointments 
as learning curves.
You can fit three bloggers in a Saco Apartments bath tub!
Me, Dina and Daniella.
The people God puts in your
life are either a
 blessing or a lesson.
White chocolate chip &
Strawberry cookies can be healthy…
 if you bake them for your friends
 and only eat the strawberries ha!
Life is like Twitter. {bare with me}You simply have to post (do) what you feel, retweet (remember) the good memories,delete (forget) the drama, and follow your dreams.
Feathers are wearable… but only during LFW.
Wearing them during date night however will result in your
significant other referring to you
as ‘Birdy’ for a significant amount of time.
To only wear heels if I have
back up flats in my bag!
This year was great but 2013 will be awesome!

    I came to your blog the very day you posted comment on mine, but had no time really at the moment to browse thoroughly, but I did get a chance and read this post. And yesterday afternoon it got me thinking about it all… you were truly inspiring with all you said. Got me thinking about writing something similar on the subject… we’ll see 🙂
