Can I just say that this has been such an incredible year and only now that I look back do I realise how much has happened and changed in some short 364 days! I think this year I’ve learnt so much and my outlook on life altogether is very different – reflecting on my 2014 self, I probably wouldn’t recognise myself. But that’s the exciting part of life, right? We grow through knowledge, experience and time.
I simply cannot believe it’s been only seven months since the official launch of Miss Caly – it really does feel like I’ve known you guys for years. Everyday I am inspired to make new posts and I love sharing with you the things I’m passionate about, whether it’d be a DIY, a drawing or something random. I must admit, blogging has been a long and bumpy ride for me. Behind the screen I had to find a way to balance a school and social life, as well edit pictures, write posts, connect on social media and look for post ideas. There were times when I didn’t have time to post, there were times of blogging burnouts and sometimes a lack of inspiration. I’m also still trying to find a theme for my blog too, so you may notice a few changes here and there every once in a while… Anyway, in the end, through blood, sweat and tears (not really…), I’m really proud of how far I’ve come, and I really look forward to the opportunities to come next year!
This would actually be the first time I’m celebrating this exciting end and beginning with you, and I thought I’d make it special by reflecting on the highlights of my blog this year. Below is a list of my personal favourite and most viewed posts for 2015. I’m feeling nostalgic already… :’)
