2014 in Review

On this final day in 2014 (remind me how we’re here already?), I thought it would be fun to look back on the year. I always like reflecting around this time of year and this past week I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’d like to accomplish in 2015. One of those things is continuing to work hard on this blog. I’m very proud of the work that I put into this blog in 2014 and I want to continue to improve my little corner of the internet.

We’ll talk more about some of my 2015 resolutions on Friday, but for now I wanted to share my five favorite style, beauty, and lifestyle posts this year (click the image to go to the original post):

This is probably nothing like what French school girls actually wear, but in my head, this is how one might dress. Can anyone confirm or deny?

It’s been really, really great to spend time with my family this past week and a half, but I’m also looking forward to getting back to my cozy little bedroom in NYC. It’s always nice to have some down time in the city. I don’t go back to work until the 5th, so I get to enjoy being on vacation for one more glorious week.

I think I’m going to do dinner with some friends, then head over to another friend’s apartment for a party. While I was in California, I picked up a sparkly top to wear on Wednesday and I’m still deciding what I want to do with my makeup. I’m trying to get back to the regular schedule this week, so check back soon for some reflections on 2014 and resolutions for 2015!
