recaps & resolutions

Hello, 2012!

It’s been a wild ride, but after catching up on sleep and cleaning my room, I’m willing to believe the new year is actually here.

In the spirit of the new year, here’s a recap of what I did in 2011 and my resolutions for 2012.

Thanks for taking the time to read, sending me products to review and inviting me to events – I’ve loved it all.

Here’s to a fabulous year!

In 2011:

I became a real blogger! After blogging for a few years, I finally decided to put in the effort to blog more – it paid off.

I graduated from #HumberPR and got my first job as the assistant manager of marketing and corporate communications at Maritz Canada.
 
I made an appearance on the CTV website and in the Globe and Mail’s party photos
I was quoted as an expert, lauded for my social media skills and asked for my opinion:
I made the switch to iPhone. Yes, that was important enough to merit a mention in this list.
I kissed the same someone special at midnight

In 2012 I will:

  • Do what I love. PR is my calling and I can’t wait to see what will happen in the second year of my career!
  • Breathe. With a full-time job, blog and social life comes stress. It’s time to breathe, stretch and drink lots of tea.
  • Wear more high heels. It’s no secret that I have a ton of shoes. After a super serious back injury 3 years ago, I had to all but abandon them. It’s time to bring them out of the closet 🙂
  • Save for Chanel. Yes, really. I’ve been coveting a classic quilted bag since forever and would love to buy it for myself without feeling guilty (there are futures and down payments to think about, after all!). Using Mint.com, I’m going to keep tabs on my finances so the new addition barely makes a dent.
  • Have those dates that always get put off. You know the ones – the well-intentioned coffees and dinners that never happen. Since, like Val, I’ve been trimming the fat from my social life, there will be lots of time left over for wonderful relationships – new and old.
  • Blog more. I love to write – it’s part of why I’m in PR! I’d love to put up the equivalent of 2 posts a week this year (and maybe contribute to other blogs/outlets, too!).
  • Live colourfully. Smile, wear lots of lipstick and bright colours, be joyful.
What are your resolutions for 2012?

  • Love this! Congratulations on an awesome year, both online and off. Looking forward to reading more of your blog.

    My new year’s resolution is to keep a personal journal. 🙂

      Thanks, Stella!
      A journal! That’s pretty sweet. It’ll be great to look back on years from now.

  • I’m hoping to get into grad school (fingers crossed for BU), take better care of my skin, run a 7 minute mile & win a 1.30m speed class

      Great goals! 

  • I’m terrible at making new years resolutions let alone keeping them. It’s also worth noting that you’re a blog superstar and I admire you.

    That’s all 🙂

      I admire *you*! I’m really bad at keeping resolutions so my focus this year was to make ones I could actually fathom keeping. These are easy and are things I should be doing anyway 😉

    Read a book a week! As a fellow poli sci undergrad I’m sure you will appreciate my first read:  “Damned Nations:  Greed, Guns, Armies & Aid” by the founder of War Child Samantha Nutt.

      Wow, a book a week? That’s so ambitious – I love it! I just started using GoodReads to keep track of the books I’m reading this year – you should join, too!
