My Year In Pictures – 2014

2014 was for me, both a blessing and a lesson. I had some great moments, and there were months I didn’t know what to do! I got lost, but in the end I found myself again, and I found a goal that I will manage to reach. Since we’re soon entering February, I thought I’d show you guys some of my highlights from the year of 2014. I chose to make this into two parts, so the other one will be up soon.

How was your year? Any great memories?

I bought my beloved Burberry Trench and read a really touching book. I also got to dress up differently.

I went to Nice, Monaco and Cannes. I had a blast and did a lot of shopping!

I started to sketch again. Made a lot of cute dresses and skirts. Went on our cabbin to relax and created these sunnies!

Time flies by so far, and it’s already a new year. Where did all the time go? It’s 2015. First of all, I’m sorry for being absent these last few weeks, but it has been a tough couple of months – and I guess I really needed 2014 to be over. There’s things I didn’t tell you because of personal reasons, but I lost one of my closest friends and the fact that she’s not around any longer, doesn’t make any sense. Not at all.

A new year – means new opportunities, but also new beginnings, so hopefully things will turn around. I’ve already started school and I guess you can say that I’m ready for whatever’s coming. I hope this year will be a lot better. I will be strong, stronger than last year, stronger than I’ve ever been before, and hold on to everything I stand for and everything I want to do in my life. I wont let anyone break me or push me back down. I will start fresh. With a new beginning. I will look brighter on things. See everything differently. Be a better person. And follow all of my dreams – no matter what or where they may take me.

On the journey called life we learn something new every day. We learn both right and wrong. We do get to feel both happiness and sadness. We do get hurt, and at some point we may fall deep down, but still we manage to get on top again. It may take a little while, maybe months, even years, but when we do get on top we’re stronger than ever. Then we know what to do and that we won’t make the same mistake twice. I guess every year we’ll find both good and bad, but sometimes it hurts too much and you won’t be able to move on. Not alone.

The wounds are burned into your skin, and they won’t heel. It can take years until they’re totally heeled and you feel whole again, or at least, this was what happened to me. This year I will focus more on myself and what I really want. I will move on with my life and start doing what I wanted to do without any tear drop running down my cheek. I will follow my dreams. It’s all about finding out who you want to be and who you don’t want to be. What you want to do. What you want to achieve.

So this year - think about what you really wish for – what is it that you really want? Keep on to the question until you find the answer that you’ve been searching for, and keep fighting for your goals and dreams. I mean, you can do anything you want to do - if you just believe in yourself.

Burberry With Love – Romeo Beckham

The new “Burberry With Love” campaign has finally been released, and this year it’s featuring Romeo Beckham. Burberry has taking it to a new level – with a film clip that gives you all the christmas spirit you’ll need. In the clip Romeo is delivering gift to people, in Burberry’s classical beige trench coat. I’m in love with this campaign and it has tuned out to be my favourite so far. I’m already longing for christmas.. If you don’t believe me – take a look yourself:
