CHEERS TO 2015

Strapless Floral Print Dress
Happy 2015 everyone!

I am alive and well, so is my family and i couldn't be more thankful. Thank you all for the amazing support as always. What a difference a year can make. This time last year, i was blogging from snow covered mountains, in thigh high boots and puffy winter jackets, but I'll choose a strapless floral print sundress any day over that.

2014 has come and gone. I felt like it was a very significant year all over the world with a lot of bizarre things happening here and there. Although, my holiday was nice and very quiet for the most part, i basically spent most of it in the comfort of my home where i did some soul searching. I couldn't help, but think about all the families of those affected by the missing  plane that still hasn't been found, only for another one to follow, and how Sony reminded us all, the virtual world may be your best friend, but it can also be your worst nightmare. Keep your very private stuff, verrry private. We learn from experiences and we try to move on from it. Not everyone can say the same when losing a loved one unexpectedly is a wound that can never heal. I almost don't want to turn on the TV sometimes because there is just only so much sad news you can take for one day. My heart goes out to those who may have lost loved ones this past year and before. Also to those trying to find some sort of closure with anything. And i mean anything.  Always remember you are not alone. Hang tough.

Something i learned in 2014 was:  I learned never to build my confidence on uncertainties and never to allow uncertainties derail my goals <tweet>. Everyday i wake up to want to do more and be more, but sometimes i let the "if only" cripple my motivation. Not anymore.

2015 is here and i already started taking every single day into consideration because i want to be present in every single moment of it. I stayed up on New Year's Eve updating my blog media kit (i know, not your typical NYE celebration, hahaha).  When i set my mind on something, it is hard to break away. I always have to complete it.

One life changing moment for me so far is being a mom and that comes before anything else. My little girl motivates me to keep pushing hard for success and i just love her to pieces. My daughter is growing up fast and she is at that age where she copies everything i do and say. From trying to imitate my outfit posts or poses to wanting to wear my clothes and high heels around the house. She is cuter than she really thinks she is so i know if she decides to start blogging soon, she will be fine ;) - If you are a mom, i am sure you'll understand when i say, watching her just being such a kid is satisfying. These are moments you will never get back again. Enjoy it while it lasts.

I look forward to an amazing 2015 for all of us and i wish you all nothing but love, success, good health and happiness. Thank you all for letting me share another beautiful year with you on this platform. Cheers!

*Oh yeah, that is a mixture of apple juice and water. I am sure you can already tell, hehehe.

You look amazing doll and I loved your words and I agree. The lost people have been very close to me, I always dislike when these things happen as they never bring the answers we hope for. But, I think good thoughts and prayers for them. It reminds us that life can be so quick and that we need to appreciate it all the time and not worry about the other stuff as much as we tend to.I hope you have an amazing year, all that may come your way!! It's always a joy to come here and I am very happy we found each other in the last year and I look forward to all to come for us this year!! Enjoy Xoxox

You are angel and and an inspiration Kizzy. I really hope to meet you one day. Seriously. Although, i can almost tell how sitting down and chit chatting with you would be like :)) -Warm, sweet and full of laughter. Life is too short indeed. Losing someone without getting answers can be frustrating but we have each other for strength and support to try to move on from any pain. Thank you so, so much and i wish you a beautiful 2015 too :).

I echo your thoughts and feelings about what has happened recently in the world, privacy issues and a lot of deaths that has occurred. You look beautiful, and I am wishing you and your family loads of happiness and a prosperous 2015! xx/Madison

I was thinking about these things the other day too...2014 was hard on lots of people, there had been horrible floods and many deaths in this part of the world and so many wars started in other parts...sometimes I get so overwhelmed when I see the news...so much sadness...it makes me feel powerless. Sometimes I think it's better to watch news less often and get a bit involved in volunteer work- that usually makes me feel like I'm making a difference, albeit a small one.


...and when I see how some people misuse the internet and how journalist and reporters make fun of everyone...it makes we want to stay offline and off TV for good.


You look absolutely wonderful! beautiful floral dress...and your hairstyle is so perfect!


I think I know what you mean when you say how fulfilling is to watch your baby girl grow...even if I'm not a mother, I have a lot of babysitting experience...and I volunteered with kids a lot...and nothing can motivate one to strive for a better world than them!

Volunteering is such a fantastic idea Ivana. Aren't you a sweetheart :). It just seems like every time you turn on the TV, it is always breaking news. Ugh, it makes me cringe. It was a really rough year every where in the world and i just hope for peace and love this 2015. Thank you so much for being a great friend this past year and i look forward to more posts from you this 2015. Happy New Year to you and yours.

I am sure losing someone is not something we can easily get over but I find comfort in thinking of them in a better place.
I agree that kids should be kids and we all should live in the now. Be present in every single moment.
Here is to a terrific 2015 my doll!
Thank you for being a beautiful part of 2014.

Oh Busola,

what a compassionate post, so sensitive and heartwarming, and sad a bit, too, as we remember some awful things that transpired this year.

You will get so much joy from parenting, and I see that you are already-- it just keeps getting better.

You look so soft and beautiful in that lovely floral dress, like a girl yourself.

sending hugs, sweet gorgeous, enjoy this year and all of the good things in store for you.

xx, Elle
