Y’all it’s New Years Eve! How is this even possible?!? Even though it has been a rough year for many, there were tons of unfortunate events, an election year that brought out the worst in people and there are a tons of memes saying let’s just forget this year; 2016 wasn’t all bad in my books. I accomplished some great feats. I graduated college, I landed an internship with a local fashion designer that has now turned to freelance work, I hammocked more than I ever thought I would, I traveled to the beach for graduation celebration and camped for a whole weekend in October and I finally got to see Adele in concert (and we all know those tickets were actually the hardest things on the planet to get). As far as the blog, I decided to keep it going after school, made some changes in my fashion decisions, partnered with some great brands, started working with sustainable, ethical and fair trade companies, and met a lot of great people along the way. So 2016 really wasn’t that bad. So here are some of my highlights from 30shadesofstephanie.com and I can’t wait to see what 2017 holds for both myself and blogging.
Mountain side photoshoots will always be my favorite.
Our 2016 big snow.
Valentine’s Day 2016!
My first Rachel Weisberg product, now I have a little collection growing!
This year I’ve really taken the time to discover and explore nature.
Will still love this outfit.
One of my all time favorite outfits for the blog!
The day I took my final, final exam and received grades by 12 that day. The day I found out I was an official college graduated. And we celebrated at Hilton Head Island.
We actually celebrated all week.
Went and chopped my hair off because it was time for a change, plus found the perfect hairstylist in Asheville, Jessy at Bari.
Celebrated getting another year older.
Went on an 3 night camping trip at Fall Creek Falls. I survived, it wasn’t horrible. We liked this place so much we may actually go back.
Gilmore Girls had a revival this year. On Black Friday to be exact. So thanks to Netflix, Luke’s diner did a pop up in Asheville. Of course I went.
Traveled to Atlanta to see Adele with my girl Anne. Thanks so much to Andrew for taking us, dealing with us talking about the show the following few days and constantly talking about it until the actual show. One of the best nights of my life.
I hope all of you had a great year, are looking forward to the new year and I hope you all have a fun and safe #NYE!
Check out the blog tomorrow to reintroduce myself to new followers, what I would like to achieve for 2017 and what to expect from me as far as blogging!
