2015 has been a wonderful year. I’m grateful for everything that happened. Even though for most of us, this new year feels just like another day, I still think it’s important to reflect and renew. I’m reminded of C.S.Lewis’s quote, “Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different.”

I’ll be doing a short post about what I’ve learned and a few of my new goals for the year, but for today–I wanted to give you a glimpse back. I launched my blog with my own domain in February of 2015, and my blog journey continues to grow.

I’m excite for this new year. There are a lot of unknowns, but the ambiguity develops and strengthens my courage, my faith, and my determination. I continue to seek and pray.

There’s a season for everything. Every season is different, but different isn’t always bad, just like how change isn’t always bad. Self-development & self-improvement is a form change. 2015 has definitely been a year of changes. Of course, it’s all for the better. Thank you for taking your time to read my blog. I wish you all a wonderful and blessed new year.

Whimsical Winter || Snowflakes & Berry Crown

Hello Hello

IMG_7583-1

In light of the holiday I wanted to share with you this whimsical editorial self portrait with you. (Nothing fancy, but something fun)

IMG_7572redit-01-3

In lure of this snow blanket season, I often wonder where I would fly to if I could fly. Would I love the breeze against my bare skin? Would I enjoy the elevation? Then I begin to ponder upon the beauty of snowflakes: the uniqueness of each flake–the distinctness between each flake. And I’m reminded that no two snowflake is the same, yet they are both beautiful, and together they create a greater beauty–the white beauty that covers the hills and the naked branches.READ MORE

5 Things I like About December {Yellow Knit Cardigan & Pleated Skirt}

Hello Hello

IMG_8077

December is here. And there’s currently no snow on the ground (I’m not complaining), technically it’s autumn until the 22nd anyways. The weather has been cooler, and last weekend it snowed–the snow obviously didn’t last. Nonetheless, I decided to opt for this bright colorful outfit to contrast the black monochrome looks I’ve been gravitating towards. I love the complimentary effects between the yellow knit cardigan and the magenta pleated skirt. I added black tights for extra warmth and a pair of black heeled loafers to elongate my frame. I finished with a grey infinity scarf with pink flowers to enhance the skirt. But enough about this look–let’s talk about reasons to love December!!

Alright, again–December is here. That means the year is ending. That also means winter is coming. Even so, and as much as I do not like the cold, there are a few things I like about December.READ MORE
