2015 in Review

Hello everyone! First I want to say that I am going back to my normal upload schedule for my blog posts so expect a post from me every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Today I am sharing some highlights of this past year. I did a post like this last year (which you can check it out here) and thought it'd be fun to do another one for this year! So much as happened this year and I cannot believe that it is coming to and end. So without further ado, here's my 2015 in review (I should be a poet, I know!).

I actually spent my first day of 2015 in Times Square! I didn't actually stand in Times Square when the ball dropped at midnight, but it was still a fun time!

I had gotten to go on my first cruise with my parents to the Caribbean for spring break! You can check out more photos from my trip here.

My school's annual Holi Moli festival!
I turned 20 this year! I still cannot get over the fact that I'm no longer 17. Like, what? My birthday weekend was filled with lots of sweets, wonderful friends and lots of laughter! What a great way to say goodbye to my teenage years now, am I right? Be sure to check out my outfit I wore to my birthday dinner here

I got a chance to go home to help my best friend get ready for her senior prom! How did time fly by so fast that she graduated and started college this year??

My baby brother graduated this year! *tear tear*
Most of you probably didn't know this, but I spent the majority of my summer living in a hotel due to issues with my apartment. It was like I had my own apartment complex because the room had a kitchen and little seating area! The move out from my apartment was stressful, but staying in the hotel really wasn't bad at all!
My cruise to Alaska! It was such a fun (and stressful) trip and I was happy to go on it with some family members that I haven't seen in a while! I managed to unintentionally traveled to a different country, and 5 different states during the trip! You can read all about my trip here and watch the highlight video here.

This past year I really go on top of my blogging game. As you can see from last year, I definitely improved on posting more often! I'm excited to continue to grow my blog and share my life / outfits with you all!

I also had my first job interview this year! My first interview was with Kate Spade, which I ended up not taking the job due to multiple reasons. Soon after I did have a second job interview and ended getting my first job outside from working for my parents!

I was able to go to a Eagles vs Colts pre season game with my dad (and get to see Tim Tebow play!)! My family is originally from Philadelphia so it was fun to finally go to an Eagles game! #FlyEaglesFly

I also ran up the Philadelphia Museum of Art just like Rocky did!

I went to my first college party this year! I also found out that I don't like parties or large crowds.. #grandmastatus
I also got to go to a wedding for the first time since 4th grade! My cousin had gotten married this past October and it was great to see some of my family members!

The Panthers being undefeated for most of the year! Even with a 14-1 record I am still proud of them! I also finally actually learned the game of football this year (which is kind of sad considering I cheerlead for football for 4 years...).
Kenan Thompson made an appearance at my school and it was such a cool experience hearing him talk and watching his comedy show! p.s. sorry for the poor picture quality!

I got to feel a little fancy for a night and eat at Fahrenheit while getting to see a beautiful view of Charlotte!
Lastly, I ended the year in Cancun, Mexico! Check out more photos from my trip here.

This had been such an eventful, stressful, sad, fantastic, jam packed year! I traveled so much this past year and am so grateful for the opportunity to! I'm pretty sure I have lived out of a suitcase for 75% of the year! There were so just as many ups as there were downs and I have learned so much this past year. I also want to thank all of you for reading my posts and hope you had a fantastic year! I cannot wait to see what 2016 has in store for me! I hope you all have a great day!

  12. What a perfect place to start the new year! Clearly it was a sign of a great year to come. I love cruisessss! I'm so jealous you got to go on one this year. I'm glad you had an amazing time! My dream is to live in a hotel suite, so I'm a little envious of your summer in a hotel haha. I hope your 2016 is even better than your 2015!
