two years

sweater: gap // skirt: forever 21 // shoes: aldo // watch: michael kors // necklace: james michelle 

I'm really proud to say that my little blog is 2 today! 
I honestly cannot believe it's been 2 years it's just crazy how quickly time has passed. I first started this blog as a hobby when I moved to Alberta from Ontario but it's become so much more than that. I've always been obsessed with fashion but this blog has given me a new found love for it. I truly look forward to blogging everyday and I credit it for giving me sanity while living somewhere so far from my family, friends and basically everything I know.
I think I've definitely grown in the last year and I'm looking forward to what the future holds for this blog. It will definitely be different moving to Calgary in January but I feel like my blog can only go up from there. Blogging has given me the opportunity to meet and form friendships with some amazing bloggers as well as some brands that I've admired for what seems like forever. I still get so giddy when I receive a compliment or am featured by a brand.
Speaking of being featured, I was recently featured in October's issue of InStyle magazine for being inspired by an article and it's still so surreal to see myself in it! If you haven't seen it yet it's on page. 88 of the magazine or you can see it here! Thank you so much InStyle!
  To my readers: Thank you so much for coming back everyday and giving me compliments and comments. I really appreciate your kind words. I credit you guys for making me feel better when I'm having a bad day.
Here's to more blogiversaries to come!

oh and...

I'd like to thank my loyal photographer boyfriend who not only supports my blog but puts up with driving to the city almost every weekend  (about 2 hours) and going to events with me! I love you!
 ps. Don't be mad I posted this pic..
