14 HIGHLIGHTS OF 2014

Happy New Year everyone!!!
It's officially 2015 all over the world and I already feel better. I guess it's that feeling of the new beginnings and new chances to make things right. I hope you all had an awesome nye! 
I'm still sick, like I told you, so my big new year's kiss came from my mum(who is also sick). But, apart from the misses, the bad memories and the tears, there are plenty of things that made 2014 one to remember. I decided to put together a list of last year's 14 highlights for me. Let's see.
1. Starting my blog
I made my very first post in January (1 year anniversary coming soon) and I still can't believe all the amazing things that have happened because of my blog. If you know me, I happy with just writing here and sharing my thoughts with you, and everything else that's coming is welcome(: I'll elaborate more in a few days.
2. Friends
From making existing bonds stronger to having explosive new contacts in my life, this year has been big. Some people went from acquaintance to one of the closest friends, others invaded my life so unexpectedly and others just proved that they are there for me, even if we don't see each other that often. 
3. French
No, I'm not talking about kisses(although we had some of those too :$). I'm talking about the language. I've been taking french lessons since I was in kindergarten, and this year finally my efforts paid off. It was a real struggle and it required tons of hard work, but I got the final diploma and now I can officially teach French!
4. I'm a journalist!
I'm not just writing articles for my blog. Right now I'm also working with online magazines and websites, which is huge for someone aiming to work for a big fashion magazine one day. I would like to make a wish for Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar and so many more, but I'm afraid you'll moque me. I'm still really young, and I'm shooting for the stars y'all!
5. Books
I know this might sound boring, but this year I read some incredible books. As a helpless bookworm I find books the best company, but I think that everyone can learn something while reading. I discovered so many different new worlds and I feel a lot richer. And, you see, this kind of gold nobody can take away from you.
6. Travel
I visited Crete for the first time and I absolutely loved it! I went to Nafplio and Paros too and I love these places, but I've been there before. Crete was a completely new experience, with breathtaking landscapes and such natural beauty. I'm a huge sucker for travelling anyways!
7. Makeup Skills
I always loved makeup, but all I knew a year ago was swiping eyeshadow on my lid and adding mascara. I started watching videos and tutorials and now I'm pleased to see that all my friends come to me to do their makeup. I guess I have an advantage since I was always into drawing and sketching, but still. My makeup collection is growing along with my skills and I'm so happy^^
8. Fashion Week
I went to fashion week twice this year with a press pass. It's obviously surreal to have access to all the shows and be able to sit at the front rows. The new designs, the models, the clothes...oh!
9. Fashion Crowd
Let's not forget all the wonderful people I met through my blog-mostly fellow bloggers-that are always willing to leave a sweet comment and send me messages. And stylists, makeup artists, designers, journalists...and I met some people in person who actually knew my blog!
10. Party
I didn't use to be a big party person, but this year I went to quite a lot and threw one myself. Now I'm definitely a party-party-party person :P. I sure want to go to some more in 2015. Let's hope that one of them will be at nye and I won't be sick again.
11. Sketch
In the beginning of the year, I had much more time to focus on doing one of the things I love. It's hard to believe in yourself, in your skills, sometimes. It's quite of an astonishment to see that you can recreate a beautiful sketch by a talented artist.
12. Tumblr
I was so happy when I saw my tumblr account grow so much in just one year. I got so many followers and it was so nice to realise that I actually have some fans and people who reblog almost every photo I post.
13. Collaborations
I can't describe my excitement when I got emails from some great people in the industry who wanted to work with me. I feel like it adds a special touch to each blog and kinda breaks the routine. I'm looking forward to many more collabs in 2015(fingers crossed).
14. Growth and maturity
I finally see right now that I've come a long way. I worked a lot on myself this past year and I'm happy that I let some things go and that some others don't matter to me anymore. It's hard to let things go, and especially if you are like me and you just don't start fights and stuff. But, I've learned a lot and I know now that, sometimes, it's for the best and you shouldn't let some things get to you. I have so many more things to improve this year!

What were your favorite things about 2014? I wanted to add music and films, but that's key every year. I don't know... let me know in the comments below.

AUDREY HEPBURN

I feel there are not enough words to describe this woman. Audrey Hepburn, has inspired and influenced generations of women all around the word. Beautiful, funny and talented, truly iconic. Is there really anyone who can compare with her? She died young, but she will always stay alive in the hearts of all of us who were touched by her. You've probably guessed by now, how fond I am of this british actress and humanitarian. To start with, I love everything british, but that's a long talk. I could go on and on about how amazing she was, today it's her 85th birth anniversary(she was a taurus like me), but I thought it would be better to talk about her fashion sense. You can see the rest by just watching one of her movies(or all). She was considered one of the most important fashion icons for many years, as she was linked with elegance and style. She starred in numerous movies, won great awards and the critiques worshiped her beauty and talent. Her performance in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's is the most memorable parts of the actress. The black dress that she wore at the beginning of the movie is considered to be one of the iconic pieces of the 20th century, and perhaps of all times. Pearls, diamonds, gloves, elegant updos, large hats and sunglasses pay tribute to the timeless feminine style. One after the other, women up until today, are trying to imitate her and steal some of the glow of the sweet and irreplaceable Audrey. 
We will always remember her and smile. She could have danced all night...
