For me, 2013 was a great year, despite 13 being traditionally the most unluckiest
number ever. Sure, I've had my ups and downs and many regrets like everybody else but as J.Cole and Miguel would say: ON TO THE NEXT ONE!
This whole "new year, new me" crap that goes around is SO uninspiring. Maybe "new year, improved me"? It's much more realistic. You can never have a new you, you're always going to be the same person; possibly a few pounds lighter and a different hair colour. That's my motto for my own self and Latest Lil in 2014; not new, but improved. Sorry Drake, YOLO is so 2013.
Since starting my blog in Jan '13 it has gone from strength to strength but I feel it's not where I want it to be yet. It can be so much better than it is and that's what 2014 is gonna be all about! I'm saving up for a new camera and hopefully grow some balls and not be so shy about taking outfit posts in public. Also possibly lose a few inches here and there like every other gal with body issues. Girl power YO!
Throughout the year I got to go to some great events, meet cool new people and feature in some awesome websites and popular magazines. You can check out all my features on the PRESS AND FEATURES tab at the top of the page.
September '13 saw me enrolling into D.I.T to study Journalism which I am totally crushing on. I love the course, apart from the odd class, as you do. I feel I've finally found my niche in Dublin and it's a great feeling! This is my second year living in the big smoke and I'm coming to terms with Dublin life, maybe I'll start calling girls moths now. (It's Dub slang for all you non-capital folk).
I thought I'd take a look back to some of my favourite outfits and D.I.Y's from the year and also what my top 3 posts were of 2013. All D.I.Y's you can find in the D.I.Y tab at the top of the page.
