That’s it, another year has gone by and at midnight we’ll all (hopefully) be having champagne, toasting to the new year with our friends and loved ones. Looking back at 2012 is just a bit more bittersweet than other years. While it may seem that it’s been a year of only smiles and happiness, there are always days when things aren’t so jolly (after all, I don’t live in a fairy tale). There were moments, people and places that were incredible and unforgettable – memories I’ll always cherish and be thankful for. 2012 was also the year I was confronted with some of the harder things in life, like difficult work experiences or parting ways with someone you loved for a very long time. All things that are a part of life, but they did make this year just a little different for me. It’s good to look back and reflect on what was, but even better to be excited and positive on what will be. Here’s to looking forward to 2013 – thank you for reading, visiting and helping me make some of those fashion dreams come true!

It used to be all about the clothes, but as I’m growing older beauty products are becoming more and more important in my everyday routine – which also shows in my NY buys. Not only are there faux furs, new bags and sequin tops but I also had foundation, a brush, blush and perfume lurking on the wishlist. As you can see, I managed to cross every item off the list. Beauty victory! The Dior perfume was one of those last-minute airport buys (of course, no better time to stock up on perfume when you’re waiting for your flight) and the fancy foundation – well, let’s just say I felt like it was time to step it up a notch from the usual budget products I use. After all, I put it on my face pretty much every day so it doesn’t hurt to pay a little extra for that, right?
