Looking back is an important part of life. Looking at the mistakes, the memories, the chances you took, etc. They make you who you are. Whether 2016 was your year, there are moments that you can look back on and be thankful for. Those good days where you just smiled because everything was going right (finally); and they may have only lasted for a day, but they happened. Maybe it's because I'm riding one of those life highs right now or maybe I'm just an optimistic person, but I like to reflect. Talking about my firsts and favorite moments make me smile ear to ear. So I made a list. Mostly it's for me, a reflection of my year and proof I didn't spend 2016 just watching Netflix and drinking coffee.
Traveled to Europe
Experienced all different cultures, foods, art all around Europe. This is number one because I believe it had the biggest influence in my life. Traveling gives you a whole new perspective
Studied abroad in London
Need I say more? Studying abroad is not only about what you learn in the classroom.
Was featured in Marie Claire Magazine
Starting the year off right. I was featured in the February issue of Marie Claire. This copy will always have a place on my nightstand.
Attended Camp PINK for College Fashionista
Last summer I was sent by College Fashionista and Victorias Secret PINK to attend Camp PINK in New York. My job; have fun and take lots of Instagrams.
