What a crazy year it has been. A year of growth, 2018 has taught me that if you want something badly enough and you are willing to work hard at achieving it, you will get there.
Also that it’s so important to listen to your instincts and let them guide you.
Almost a year ago I was still barely eating, very unhealthy and unwell. In December 2017 I changed my diet radically and from that, my lifestyle began to change too. My mindset changed, I learned to be more open and just enjoy every day as it came. I also learned to be grateful, for everything and that has been the biggest blessing. I struggled a lot with comparison, working in Social Media, and this year learning to be grateful for who I am and what I have has made a huge difference to my daily and work life.
I grew to listen to my body and gave it what it needed – all of the nutrients – or as many veggies as I could fit in a green juice! This helped radically overhaul my skin, hair and nails, but also my mind. I feel lighter and happier now than ever before and it goes to show that some ‘self-care’ of putting yourself first, making the time to achieve those goals will be worth it in the end. If you had asked me in 2015 if I could see myself where I am now, I wouldn’t, couldn’t have even pictured it. Yet, here I am, and I am so grateful for that.
Admittedly, it has come with challenges and I have learned more than ever about my ability to cope this year. Through those years of being unwell I am still very much dealing with the repercussions, health wise and the latter half of 2018 has been spent focusing on dealing with iron levels, not absorbing vitamins and having to cut gluten & sugar from my already strict diet. Like everything in life, it’s how you handle it, and this has been something that, even though at first was the hardest challenge, i’ve simply had to tackle head on.
Along the way of learning these life lessons, I had a pretty great 2018. Working with so many incredible Brands like Topshop, Ralph Lauren, Starbucks, Thomas Sabo & many more! I focused on what I wanted the blog and my channels to be and worked hard at achieving that. Although I decided to focus on health and not travel as much, and skipped out on my usual Fashion weeks, I had such an incredible Summer and most excitingly – got engaged!! and started wedding planning! I can’t wait to share more about that in 2019, but for now, I am sharing some of my 2018 highlights below.
All in all, 2018 has been pretty amazing, and I also wanted to take the time to thank you for sticking with me, and supporting me as always. I am so beyond grateful for all of it. I can’t wait to share more in 2019 and to see where this New Year will take us!
I hope you all have an amazing New Years Eve and wish you all a wonderful year filled with happiness.
