I thought it’s only appropriate to share with you 25 things I’ve learned since I’m officially 25 today!!
The past few years have been a whirlwind, especially this past year. But I’m excited for what’s to come. When I was young, I used to wonder what I would be like and look like at the age of 25. And here I am, nothing like the person I thought I would be, but someone I’m glad I’ve become.
I also wanted to share some photos from past outfit shoots that never made it to the blog. These photos reflect a part of who I am. I hope you enjoy these photos and this long awaited post.
Now, in no particular order, 25 Things I’ve Learned:
1. Change is not always bad
