Happy New Year, everyone! After quite a long break from the blogosphere, I am back, fully recharged and ready to jump right back into the blogging routine! So here I am wearing my new Hello Kitty swag, ringing in the New Year. 

May this year be full of sweetness, cuteness, and cheer for everyone!

In my last post, I had mentioned that my blog turned 1 a few days ago. In just one year, I have learned a gazillion new style, fashion, and decorating tips and DIYs. More importantly, I've met many lovely bloggers from all over the world. Blogging has made me a much more confident and experimental person. I now look forward to wearing new styles and mixing up items I would never have thought to wear together in the first place. So, Thank you, dear reader, for reading and responding to my posts! I am very grateful for your support! 

To start off the New Year, to celebrate my blog birthday, and to celebrate my birth month, I'm organizing some special festivities to be announced on the blog all throughout January. The first festivity is a special sale going on in the shop,:

Stay Tuned for more goodies!
