I cannot believe 2017 is over!! I have had many amazing experiences this year, and I am so beyond thankful for all the love support from my friends and family! I have been blessed to travel more, and I have been able to pursuit my dreams in modelling in 2017!! It seems so crazy to think that I will be graduating from high school this year, and it makes me so excited to think that if 2018 is anything like 2017 was, it will be an amazing year! Here are some of my favourite memories from 2017!
I have been so blessed to travel to all the places I went to this year!! I went to Mexico in February with my family for a missions trip to help at a daycare centre for single moms who are living in poverty. It is always such a highlight to go, because this was my 6th time going and I have made some friends down there and it was so nice to see them again! Plus, its a nice break from all the rain we get in BC in February ;). I also went to Maui with my family for spring break and it was sooo nice to slow down, and just unwind for 20 days! I was seriously paradise and I want to go back so bad right now! You can read about my trip a bit more here. Lastly, I went to Cuba in August for 3 weeks with Marley and her sisters and it was so crazy!! It was nothing like I expected and we created so many memories together hahah! you can watch our vlog, travel diary, and my blog post about Cuba!
I never could have imagined that our little blog would have grown so much this year! We have had endless photoshoots, and honestly it’s one of my favourite parts about blogging! We have also had the opportunity to collaborate with some really fun brands, like Ellie Activewear, Champagne and Lace, The Weatlthy Life, and Paola from Everlashes! It has been so amazing expanding and collaborating with other local brands across the lower mainland. We also held several giveaways, including one with Champagne and Lace in September, (which was so fun to shoot for!!) and we also did ’12 Days of Giveaways’ on our Instagram at the beginning of December, which was a huge success! ahh thank you so much to everyone who takes time out of their busy day to read one of our blog posts!! It seriously means the world!!
At the beginning of the year, one of my personal goals was to model more, and I can for sure say that I accomplished that! And while some things didn’t go as I wanted them to, I was a model in Vancouver Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2018, and it was such an incredible experience! I walked in 9 different shows, and I was also in an article in British Vogue, which completely blew my mind, because it was featuring the collection from the very first show I ever did! I also got my ‘N’ (for those who don’t live in Canada, its my driving permit that allows me to drive by myself, or with a friend) and I got it on the same day as Marley! As well, I finished my last season ever of volleyball, and we got 3 at provincials!
alsooo, I just wanted to share a few of my goals for 2018! This is mainly for me to be able to look back on a the end of the year to see what I have accomplished 😉
- Be on time! My mom can agree with this one haha… I’m ALWAYS late and its a bad habit I want to get rid of this year!
- Complete the Kayla Itsines BBG
- Not shop so much & save more!
- Less time on my phone – as a blogger the one is going to be hard, because I am always wanting to take pictures of everything! But I think that being on my phone less will help me be on time!
- Be present – I really want to cherish these last few months of high school, because I know once it’s over, I will never get these times again! I also want to enjoy all the time that I have with my family at home, whether its the family car rides to church or dinnertime etc.; I know these are precious times!
What an amazing year it has been! Thank you so much for following along my journey this year, and allowing me to share my ideas and all the amazing things that happened in 2017! Happy New Year!
