2015 has been an accomplishment itself. I am honestly did not expect to achieve so much in such a short period of time!
2015 was the mark of a beginning to my dreams aspiring to be working amongst the best within the FASHION industry.
A couple of days ago, my friend asked what it was that I had accomplished in 2015. And there ran an entire recap of the past year. Starting off with January 2015, working on the launch of my blog. It took me awhile preparing and planning but I loved every minute of it. It is where I got to share my passion and lifestyle diaries with people and where I got to meet many amazing and wonderful people from all over the world that I can call my friends! DEEforDana was and still remains to be one of my biggest accomplishments especially due to the fact that I’ve really been wanting to do this for the past two years! Since the launch in February 2015 up to this second, I feel I have been so blessed and I am thankful for so many reasons.. I have to say the love and support that I got from my family and friends was unbelievable and I owe it all to them for motivating me, pushing me and supporting me in making all my dreams come true!
I had my first personal shopper and styling experience in 2015! I can’t describe how it felt! Excited, nervous, joyed, and again excited! I’ve previously done styling, but every person I styled before used to be either a friend or a part of my family. And having it be a person outside my inner circle was a big deal for me! Nothing made me happier than seeing my client satisfied and leaving with what she was looking for! This I call an accomplishment, as it marks my first step towards working within the fashion industry.
In 2015 I also learnt the value of life. Losing two of my uncles and my role model in life; my grandfather. It was three shocks within a couple of months. Each of them being there in my life since I was a baby. Losing them made me realize that life is too short, we hear that all the time but we never really think about it. It taught me how to appreciate the ones I love. Appreciate my health and enjoy living each moment in life.. This is my advice to you all!
I look forward to a 2016 filled with making new friends and opportunities, creating a more diverse and unique perspective to styling, collaborating with more brands, and most importantly making each moment count!
New Year resolution will always be the same to me: Be kind, Be grateful, Live, and Enjoy!
May your 2016 be filled with happiness, success, and joy as you’ve made my 2015! Happy New Year!
With much love & gratitude..
