Looking Back at 2011

It's the last day of the year so I thought it would be fitting to go back and reminisce on the highlights of the past year!

Had a wonderful DIY Christmas in San Diego and I'm so inspired to create more in the new year!

I turned 24 this month and had one of the best birthdays I've ever had. I also got to go home to Fresno for Thanksgiving with Ian. I only get to go home once or twice a year so it's special to me.

Ian received his acceptance letter to SFSU and we started to prepare for our move to San Francisco!

We had a nice vacation to Coronado Island, I helped style the Nikki Lipstick fashion show and added some new tattoos to the collection.

Found out one of my best friends, Taylor is pregnant! I'm so excited to meet baby Mila in March 2012!

Started styling again at my old company, I'm really going to miss all the fabulous women I worked with this year.

I got to go home for my cousin's wedding where Ian met the whole family for the first time and we danced up a storm. I got to decorate their wedding cake!

In May I started vlogging! Something I really want to get back into this new year, more beauty tutorials to come! This is also the month Ian came home from school, finally.

In April I came back to my true love, California. I can't wait to make my trip from Southern California to Northern California next week!

In March I really got back into blogging, first getting my toes wet on Tumblr but eventually coming back to my blog here to have the freedom to do what I really love.

In February I got to live on the East Coast, meet amazing new friends and have an unforgettable adventure.

I started the year off with a drive across the country, something I have always wanted to do! I took the southern route and stopped in Austin, TX and Nashville, TN two amazing cities that went beyond my expectations.

I hope you all had a great year and thanks to everyone who's read along.
Happy New Year!
