2011, Making it happen.

2011 – thank you. You constantly amazed me with the new and unique opportunities and good times that were frequently presented, here’s a tiny rundown of my year:

♥ Took a promotion at work, and from all accounts did pretty good in the new role
♥ Flew to Melbourne with my boy to see ‘The National’ for the first time and ate some amazing vegetarian food
♥ Viewed ‘Jimmy Eat World’ for the first time
♥ Took my first makeup masterclass
♥ Went along to a meditation course (didn’t quite finish it though, but held out for 4 weeks!)
♥ Took floor barre ballet classes for the first time
♥ Started as the Beauty Writer for X-Press magazine & contributor for eVoke magazine
♥ Began seeing a naturopath
♥ Met a lot of incredible people in the Perth beauty & wellness industry
♥ Made the decision to quit my job and return to study next year (!!)
♥ Began to organise the first Perth Online Beauty Media networking event
♥ Completed a 6 week photoshop course (highly recommended!)
♥ Did my first green smoothie demonstration @ Lululemon! Spreading that smoothie love.
♥ Began to overcome a deep seated fear

Tomorrow I’ll share with you my goals for the new year ahead!

I’d love to hear any of your years highlights though, so leave a comment below if you’d like to share! 🙂

I wish everyone a wonderful New Years Eve… see you in 2012! x

Be well,

    What a fantastic idea to reflect on your achievements before looking to the year ahead 🙂

    You’ve accomplished so much! Now to get you into Pilates at PFI!!

    Happy New Year! x

  2. What a year! The two that really stand out to me on your list relate to courage – quitting your job to do something you’ve dreamt of doing and overcoming a deep-seated fear. Growth, growth, growth! Congrats lovely!

    I know 2012 will be magical for you as you take yourself in new directions and continue to kick butt here with this beautiful blog! Really looking forward to seeing what you have in store. xx

    Rach: Thank you, that’s really affirming to hear that. It can be hard sometimes to see just how important what you’re doing is when you’re in the midst of it. You’re a sweet heart! I’m looking forward to seeing what YOU’RE upto as well 🙂

    Hannah: I will be studying Public Relations and I’m pumped for it.

    I can’t wait for you to start yoga classes!

    Well done Annette, it sounds like you had a very positive and healthy 2011! You certainly spread the green smoothie bug to me and I am very appreciative for this – taking up drinking them was a healthy highlight of *my* year!
