This year has been about traveling, big personal and career moments and creating great memories. Let me take you though some highlights!
2011 is the year I traveled to London three times, to the River Island head quarters, to John Lewis and My Wardrobe. I visited LFW, and saw the Burberry Creepers fresh off the runway at the Burberry Horseferry house. Paris was big in 2011 as well, with three visits. On a Lancôme trip I met Mario Testino and I had an amazing Paris Fashion Week. Saw a bunch of shows including the Viktor & Rolf show. There were more short trips, like Florence with Luisaviaroma, Sweden with Nelly and Antwerp a few times. During summer, me and my boyfriend packed our stuff for 5 weeks of Thailand and Vietnam. Sure wish I was on one of those sunny beaches right now!
2011 had some big personal changes in the works. I'm now making a living by blogging and no longer work for my dad's communication company. Then in february I started interning at ELLE and got offered an editor job (yay!). My first designer bag - the Balenciaga - followed to celebrate. And after what seemed like forever (I'm a terrible driver) I got my license. By the end of 2011, the book I published with my father got nominated for the Marketing Literature Prize and I won the ELLE Fashion Twitter Award. On top of things my twin brother moved out of our apartment last week and I now have our place to myself. (Creating a blog office as we speak!)
Looking back, it seems impossible to have squeezed all of this into one year. I worked my butt off and made my dreams come true. Thanks for all your support during everything! What was your highlight of the year?
