#Happy2016 - Collab with CV Photography

I had the pleasure again of shooting with Cam, from CV Photography, in her own mini studio. We were in the middle of a winter storm warning the day of the shoot, so why freeze our butts off when we can shoot inside? I told myself to avoid wearing black, but that was indeed the one thing I did. If you like cheese, skip to the end of this post where I highlight my top 3 best memories of 2015.

Now onto my Top 3 Memories of 2015!

1.  Starting simplyteee

Finally starting my blog this past September was the best decision of 2015. I decided to erase all the doubts I had, get my lazy bum off the bed, and eyes unglued from watching shows, and finally do something I've always been passionate about. It's still a work in progress and I'm still figuring out what works for me, but I've learnt more about myself and my goals in the past 4 months than I had all year.

2.  Getting regrammed by American Eagle

  This was only my second shoot since the launch of my blog, so to wake up one morning with 150 additional followers and to be regrammed by one of the largest brands in North America, was largely uplifting. It was a sign that this was what I should be doing, and I questioned why I never started this earlier.

3.  Making SnowMax

  Non-fashion related, this took about a couple hours, but it was so worth it. My obsession with Baymax still lives on to this day.

As I started scrolling through my Facebook timeline, I realized just how many memories were made in 2015. It was hard to narrow it down to the top 3, but the biggest accomplishment is definitely simplyteee. I started this journey as a personal creative outlet, and in doing so I have met so many inspiring people along the way. Collaborating with photographers, brands, and other fashion bloggers, and having the support of the local blogger community has only driven me to pursue more of my goals. Thank you to my family, friends (old and new), readers and followers for supporting me on this journey.

Here's to an even bigger year, with bigger dreams in 2016!
