I just couldn’t resist the urge to make cheesy collages to highlight 2012.
What a great year it was!
I had some great life updates in 2012. I put my favorite moments in this collage.
I got married ♥ I went on a glorious honeymoon ♥ I celebrated three years as a Harlem gangsta ♥ I got bangs ♥ I have been blogging for nearly four years (though, in my humble opinion, I hit my stride this year.)
This year I tried to introduce way more outfit posts and change this blog from a fashion inspiration blog to more of a style diary. It has been a great journey refining my personal style and showing off my tendency to wear the same thing over and over again on the blog.
In 2013 — expect even more outfit posts!
Happy New Year!
I feel like there needs to be a study on the therapeutic effects getting ready can have on women. I mean seriously, how fun is getting ready for a party with your girlfriends? The music is blaring, the wine is flowing and everyone looks so cute. Getting ready is ALWAYS better than the actual destination you are headed.
Now, I must say that getting married was a million times better than getting ready for the wedding. BUT getting ready was a close second. I had a blast with my mom, my cousin (who was also our hair and makeup artist) and my gorgeous bridesmaids. I tried to keep the whole day very low key and the getting ready part was no exception. We had a gorgeous Chick-fil-A breakfast and spent the bulk of the day watching bad reality tv in Plum Pretty Sugar robes while we waiting for our hair/makeup appointments.
Wanna see some photos?
I hope you enjoyed the FIRST Matrimony Monday post!! xoxo
p.s. All photos are by Katelyn James. She is a rockstar. You should hire her for your wedding. Seriously.
I feel so lucky to have a wedding photographer that is so mind blowingly talented.
Katelyn James, you are the bomb.com
Check out this sneak peek from my engagement session. I cannot WAIT to see the rest!
