Looking Back At 2011

posted on: Friday, December 30, 2011

Well, it's that time again. I've rounded up a bunch of photos representing some of my best memories of 2011. 

JP and I rang in 2011 with some of our best friends who were visiting from Austrailia. It was also the month before my wedding so there was a lot of celebrating with friends and family including a wedding shower and bachelorette party
JP and I got married!!!! Such an amazing month! We were lucky enough to celebrate with a small group of our closest friends and family for an unforgettable week in Los Cabos, Mexico!
JP and I took a quick trip to San Francisco in March. It was my fourth time visiting California, and mine and JP's second trip to San Francisco together. We had so much fun walking everywhere to explore the city. March is also the month that I attended my first PARK event, PARKshow. PARKshow 2011 was great, but I am really looking forward to PARKshow 2012!!
In April my friend Chelsey and I attended Fabricated. This was such a fun night of meeting and getting to know some of the amazing people involved in Calgary's fashion community. 
May was Alberta Fashion Week, a whirlwind week full off millions of photos, crazy blogging, nightly fashion shows, and meeting many new friends. My favourite part was getting invited by the Smashbox/Bourjois makeup artists to get my makeup done each night! So fun. 
June was my one year blogaversary! I celebrated by wearing my custom dress made my good friend Sheri of notsoseemless and ate cupcakes with JP. June was also the month that some of my best friends had their University Convocation. I took a mini road trip to Lethbridge to join in the celebrations. I seriously have the best friends in the world!
PITW XI - JP's annual birthday camping trip was in July. The weather was perfect! In July some of my best friends and I also took a day trip out to Bragg Creek and Elbow falls for coffee and sun bathing over looking the waterfalls. 
JP and I took our mini road trip to Southern Alberta in August. We travelled to Milk River to see Writing-On-Stone park and to Waterton. My favourite part was definitely exploring the hoodoos in Writing-On-Stone. August was also PARKluxe, which was definitely my favourite fashion event of the year!
Some of my favourite memories of 2011 are from my New York trip, and these photos are from my favourite moment in New York. It was rainy for the first few days of my trip, so at the first sign of a sun one morning, Mikhaila and I headed up to the roof of her sisters place in Brooklyn to relax with our morning coffees and take in the view. September was also my birthday, mine and JP's eight year anniversary and I bought a new car! I was sad to say goodbye to my little red car after 9 years together, but it's so nice to have a new car with AC and a radio!
In October I joined PARK as a Fashion Intern and helped out with my first event, The Art of Fashion. It was so much fun to be behinds the scene of a fashion show and I'm looking forward to being a part of PARK in 2012!
In November I had the opportunity to guest blog for the whole month over at the Bellissima blog. I had no idea that guest blogging would lead to contributing to the Bellissima blog each month! I'm so excited that I'll continue to be blogging over at the Bellissima blog into 2012!! 
My little sister stayed overnight at my place in December while my parents went out to a Christmas party.
My sister loves painting, and so do I so I stocked up on canvas's, and glitter to decorate our paintings. She painted the full moon and I painted a bottle of Chanel No. 5.
