Happy New Year!!!

I hope everyone has enjoyed these last few days of 2017. πŸ™‚

It’s been, overall, a year of growth for me! I definitely am most grateful for landing my dream job this year as a graphic designer. I honestly think about it each day and feel much gratitude to have been blessed with such a job, and with great co-workers. ❀

The best thing I did this year was believe in myself. I told myself I deserved a wonderful job where I could utilize my degree and flourish, and I took a chance. Good things take time!

My artistic endeavors have also grown, as I tried my hand this past year at greeting cards, an art mug, and doing abstract paintings, which I plan to carry over into the upcoming year! I explored with my jewelry and have been regularly creating new digital illustrations. I’m thinking of dabbling into international shipping on Etsy (something I’ve been nervous to do, but I hear it’s not that difficult).

I’ve had this fuzzy tinsel sweater for YEARS! I only wear it once a year, and quite fittingly, I wear it on New Years Eve.

What do you think of the star headband? It came out nice, no? I love the glittery stars. Heck, I’m going to wear it again tomorrow for New Year’s Day.

This sweater photographs kind of funny in the sense that in some pictures it looks black, and others it looks navy blue…

I got my nails re-done! I’m so happy to be back to a sheer, neutral shade. I always end up missing natural-looking nails after I try a bolder color.

New Years Eve Night!

To celebrate and ring in the new year, my mom and I made some healthy smoothies; these are berry smoothies that I topped with raspberries and blackberries. SO GOOD.Β  I totally gave them their own photoshoot, haha!

See ya next time! ❀

  1. A crown so nice you wore it twice! (Sorry; I couldn’t keep that one in.) It turned out really stellar and picks up the tinsel in your fabulous NYE sweater. πŸ™‚ It’s fun to look back on the year and reflect, isn’t it? I’m glad yours was filled with creative breakthroughs and adventures! Also, your smoothies look yummy. What a fresh twist on the tired old cocktail!
