2014 was a very special year. I was not tied down to a job or school at the beginning, and I was free to commit myself to blogging and learning. In September, I moved away from home to Ottawa to attend law school, which felt like a completely new year in itself. From travel to time relaxing at home or at the cottage, I tried to make the most of every moment. Here’s a look back at 2014…
One of the most incredible experiences I’ve had this year was winning a contest with Keds & Glamour Magazine to spend a day in NYC at the Glamour offices. It was a surreal experience, and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity!
Greece was the trip of a lifetime! Steeped in history and natural beauty, I cannot say better things about this gorgeous country. I only spent two weeks there, but it felt like a lifetime, and I’ll be back as soon as I can!
I was so happy to take part in the local fashion scene and cover a few shows at World Mastercard Fashion Week this year. With school now, it’s hard to be able to take a few days off, so I’m grateful I had the freedom in Spring to watch the shows, meet people and support the Canadian fashion industry! I hope that in 2015, I’ll be able to make it again (even if it means playing hooky!)
I had so much fun in February visiting Disneyworld and Orlando. I love pretending to be a kid again and enjoying the warm Florida sun! The fashion outlets also didn’t know what hit them!
Here I am, trying to look stylish, sane and collected while studying for the LSAT for the third time at a Hogwarts-esque UofT library. Little did I know that I would ACE it the third time around…… and make it in to law school! Above all, 2014 was a great year of change. Switching my professional trajectory is something I still struggle with, and the “what-ifs” keep me up at night. Every day, I surprise myself with how much more I can read, retain and interpret, and I’m so grateful to be learning this breadth of new material. It’s made me a stronger thinker and person in general and I’m thankful for my family and loved ones for supporting me. I managed to make it through my first semester of law school with only four all-nighters and one exam nightmare, but I’ve come out the other end fine. Bring it on 2015!
And most of all, sharing it all with my my loved ones. I thank everyone, especially my boyfriend for their hard work and support to help make this blog happen… and for putting up with my photographic needs!
As a bonus… here are some of my favourite outfit posts from 2014:
All the best in 2015! Thank you so much for following along, I hope the new year brings you health, happiness and prosperity. Happy new year!
