Hi!
Wow, I cannot believe that 2013 is going to be over in just couple of hours (it is 17:50 while I am writing this post). I hope all of your wishes come true in the 2014 & hopefully you’ll fulfill all your New year’s resolutions! πŸ™‚ This year has been both- good & bad for me.

The good:
  •  I am really happy of how blog is growing and evolving every day, I had my first collaborations, first money earned from blogging. I have met so, so many wonderful people through blogosphere, that I can actually call my friends. I have been to several social events (like for example, to the H&M’s Showroom, where I previewed the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection, my post about it HERE) and so much more.
  • I have been working at the most awesome place ever- H&M! Persons with whom I am working with- I cannot call them my colleagues, because they are definitely my friends & I have had so much fun not only in work with them, but also outside of it!
  •  Somehow between juggling work, studies, social life, boyfriend, family etc, to my surprise I have been studying  really good! So good that this semester I received a scholarship worthy 70 lats/100 euros per month for 5 months for having good grades! I have been saving up that money, because I would like to go on a small trip this spring! πŸ™‚
The bad:
I am not going to go into very small details with the bad stuff that has happened over the year , because some of it is very personal & family oriented, I mean I could say a few things that made this year horrible (like, for example, my family found out that my dog has something like a tumour in her head, which means she will not live as half as much as she is supposed to live, she went blind over this summer! :/), but as it is New Years Eve already, I think I will not say anything more negative and try to think of the good things that have happened!
Anyways, not to make this post dull with  my ramblings about my year, I also wanted to add some outfit pictures, that actually were taken a while ago, but I had totally forgotten to post them!

    I'm sorry to hear about your dog, but even though that happened, thanks to your care she will still have a lot of happiness ahead of her – and she should be fine even is she can't see, our last dog lost sight before and the vet said she'd be fine – and she was. So don't be too sad! I hope you'll have a happy 2014 and that everybody you love will stay with you in good health. <3

    Gorgeous outfit Maddie! Overall, you've had an awesome year. So happy for you! And what an accomplishment with blogging. I know what you mean, because blogging has been great for me as well. Stay positive. We've all had our share of negative things. It's a matter of prayer and staying strong throughout. Just know it will all pass πŸ™‚

    It's nice to hear about the good things but not the bad things.. Sometimes I wonder 'Why can't life just be good?' But the answer is always 'because that is life..'
    & personally, I'm pretty happy to have said goodbye to 2013 (also personal reasons, no blogging πŸ˜‰ )
    Anyway, I wish you a wonderful 2014, babe! xx
