Everything in life is amazing, regardless.

Year 2012 in Review

1.   Started the year with no concrete plan but to continue my post degree. I let the destiny dictated my future, I just ride along... 

2.   Mum passed away in February, just right after her 62nd birthday. I do still miss her everyday but thankful to have beautiful night dreams where she visits me often. Unexpectedly, this was the moment I became closer to my brothers who live miles away from me. I was taken aback for having no clue how successful they are with their chosen careers. I'm a proud sister. 

3.   I spent a lot of time being with friends to shake off the cheerlessness I carry around with me, it helps that I've been busy working on several assignments and projects. In addition to that, one of my photos were featured in a postcard website.

4.   My other half set off on working in England but the situation brought the three of us closer. Though it wasn't easy as I've first thought, everything went well in the end. 
 "If there’s one thing family does, it is to believe,
against all odds, in the best of each other."
5.    I did a lot of firsts this year like taking the train going to South-West of Ireland. I drove hundred miles alone  (and got lost a few times) to work on several projects. I am finally an independent woman!

6.    I've finally graduated from University College Dublin. Nothing beats the feeling of accomplishing something that will totally changed your career. I have move on and embraced new beginnings. 

7.    I also got to spend few days holiday in London just before the year ends and appreciate the things I've overlooked before.

Overall, my 2012 is not bad after all. I am welcoming 2013 with open arms and lots of positivity no matter What's meant for me will never, for sure, pass me by.

Bathrooms in Grey

I’ve been planning to renovate our bathrooms for the longest time but never really took time to do a thorough research until recently. It is more than obvious how my funky colour preference has evolved into tamer tones. My living room is still red and black though with a pop of orange, brown and blue.

Instagram Suits My Lifestyle | Winter 2012

It’s easier to share everyone my whereabouts and what’s on my mind. 

Green Grass – it’s covered with little snow. I walk here everyday on my way to work.

Big Ben – you have to have a picture of Big Ben whenever you’re in London.

Life is Tasty – I had fish pie at the Market Bar, it’s my old time favourite.

Zara Coat – their app is handy whenever I’m itching to get something. I browse the catalog and decide what I want to buy. Got this coat the other day and wore it yesterday, I love it the most amongst my other coats.

DKNY Purse – I always bring this with me whenever I travel. It’s small but spacious to put in the passport, wallet and iPhone. 

Notting Hill Gate – coming out from the tube, someone snapped this logo and I followed her to do the same thing, obviously, I’m a copycat.

Cobra King – I celebrated the end of my post degree together with my classmates. We went to Saagar Indian Restaurant and had a blast, it was a sweet ending but new beginnings are awaiting for all of us.
Looking through my instagram, I’m feeling grateful. My life isn’t perfect but I have mostly everything I need. Happy Friday!
