It's the last day of 2010 and I've been looking back through the bloggy archives remembering the year. I've always loved that I can go back through old posts and its kind of like a diary showing me where I was and what I was up to. Anyways I was inspired by Renee-anne to do a month by month summary of some of my favorite moments of the year. (warning, this post could end up rather long!!)

So here we go....
Jan: India!! need I say more. Gosh India was even more than I could have prepared for. At times I was so overwhelmed by it all I cried and wanted to come straight home but at the same time there were moments I absolutely loved it. India is crazy! There really is no other way to put it. food. smells. people. cows. colour. traffic. Shantaram really had it spot on. I kind of want to go back.

Feb: Not really an eventful month. Coming back from India I found it hard to get back into blogging. I forgot about this post.

March: I got my blogging mojo back, Mori Girl. Planting Lilacs and Buttercups. my birthday - mix tapes.

April: LomoAmigo and some diana mini tips. I dream...

May: My home on The Design Files - and I met the lovely Lucy. Vintage Cameras
Creative Muse: Bat For Lashes. Anna Aden. it's you

June: My blogs 3rd birthday. I went to the snow and decided that yes I do really dislike snow. Snow I have given you three chances and sorry its just not going to happen for us.

Packing to move to QLD. sad face

Aug: The road trip to QLD. happy face

Sept: I really don't know what happened to this month but I do love this post I heard your whispering.

Oct: MY DREAM CAME TRUE! A certain magazine come out with a certain feature. eek! Also the collaboration I did with Element Eden came out andddd I met two amazing bloggers who have been my blogging friends since the beginning of time (well not time, but my blogging time). Holy crap sticks. seriously massive and the next month was a blur.

Nov: Seriously busy stuffs happened here! parties, and seeing my clothing in store for the first time. Wow. That was a hugely surreal moment up until then I had known and been working on the collection but It wasn't really real until I saw it hanging in stores (if that makes sense?). Was also a big month in my real life job , milestones and all that.

Dec: Again I'm not sure what happened to this month.

The End.

Happy New Year everyone! What are you doing for it? Have you made any New Year resolutions? I've made a few but I'll save that for another post.
