buh bye, 2012

2012 was a year of difficulty, mild depression, angst, and other tribulations that make me feel like I'm back to being a hormonal teenager. But despite those trials, 2012 was also a year of a realization of purpose, rebellion against the norm, a boost in self-worth, and lots of love and support. 
To all my readers, new and old, thanks for sticking with me. I lurve you all from the bottom of my candied heart. 

Here's to an awesome possum 2013!

  7. Happy New Year! And, just FYI, this whole post reminded me how insanely jealous of your mermaid hair I am. For reals.

  10. Some of those outfits are nice! I like the floral dress in the last one and the cream one by the fountain! I really like your blog! I'm glad that I found it! It would be nice if you could stop by my blog sometime too (I'm from England) as I post my outfits, personal style, likes and much more :) :)

  17. Oh Laura, you and all your lovely outfits/bangs/glasses. (Srsly, I'm in love with your tortoise shell glasses. How do you have so many different pairs!?! I'm totes jealz.) I feel like I've been right there with you on a very similar journey through 2012. Heck, I'm still battling through some of it. I happily admit though, I'm ridiculously grateful for the love and support I do have because I know it could be gone in a blink. I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to keep watching you quietly from the shadows while I take a nerf bat to the angst ridden teenage drama queen that's possessing my body. Keep on rocking the pretty looks!

  23. I really like all the photos you selected to highlight the past year. I am happy that 2012 rebounded in such a happy and positive way for you. Congratulations again on all the success with your shop. It's plain for the eye to see that it's curated with the utmost care :)

    Happy New Year! (again! :)

    P.S. Those green tights were a Target clearance score from either early last year or at the end of 2011.

  27. I love that second outfit of yours (lace top over pink dress). Wearing socks and a dress in matching hues is daring, but it works well with the tougher accessories you chose.
