In 2012…

by So Capricious

I started the year in Edinburgh, - Edinburgh

Travelled to Cornwall for the first time,

Cornwall Porthcurno Beach

Saw the Queen (from afar) during her Diamond Jubilee, - Diamond Jubilee, Queen's Boat

Went on a spontaneous trip to Brighton, - Brighton

Learned how to do a Ombre Hair Dye, - Ombre Hair Gradient Dip Dye DIY Tutorial (5)

Took so many pictures, - Photography 2012

Went to the Lake District, - Helvellyn

Went to the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, - Vogue Fashion's Night Out London 2012, Bond Street (1)

Experienced London Fashion Week, - London Fashion Week, Somerset House, SS13 (3)

Aside from those many highlights, I also interned at a fashion magazine, saw Roger Federer during the Olympics, got a new job that I adore, went back to Cornwall to learn how to surf, spent a lot of money on shopping, survived the apocalypse (hah!) and last but certainly not least, started investing more time and commitment to this blog. 2012 has been a fantastic year but also a pretty turbulent one. I went through a roller coaster of emotions, made so many new friends, discovered new places, expanded my wardrobe by almost a double. It was such a thrill and I really enjoyed sharing my experiences on this blog for everyone to see. I’m extremely grateful that some people actually take the time to read my rants and comment on my posts. Hopefully, 2013 will bring about more exciting experiences for me to share with everyone. So with that being said, I hope that everyone is having an amazing time celebrating the arrival of 2013. I’m off to see the fireworks on the Thames now so see you all again in 2013!

Looks like so many wonderful highlights in 2012, hope you can even more in 2013!
Hope the fireworks are wonderful at the Thames, so jealous the fireworks must be great in London!
(It’s rainy here so my fingers are crossed that it’ll be dry at midnight)
Anyway all the best for 2013, have a great evening!

Thanks Maya! Sorry for the super late reply but hope you had a great NYE too! The fireworks over here were great, although we ended up standing on a balcony instead. Less people, more space :D
Did you manage to catch the fireworks at yours too?

Maya 21/01/2013 - 18:59

Yeah I did, also just from my home though, loads of space (compared to the little spot I had in Brussels last year) and a good sight :)
I saw some of the London fireworks on tv, it’s always so beautiful!
