Goodbye and Good Riddance!!!

Happy New Year, everyone!
It's not quite next year yet over here, but it already is in some places (and there is no way I can make it to midnight, because I'm exhausted). I hope everyone had an amazing and safe night. I don't know about you cool cats, but 2014 was not so great for me- actually it really sucked (for the most part). But out with the old, in with the new! That being said, I am so excited for 2015!! I'm really scared, because there is so much change I'm still getting used to. But I am more than ready for what lies ahead in this new year. Above is the only photo I got of my outfit today, due to the fact that I worked all day. But I honestly can't complain, because I love my job. It's just a bummer, because I had such a great outfit (with teal palazzo pants!!)... That just means I'll have to wear it again, right? Besides, I do not fear being an outfit repeater.

For my last post of 2014, I decided to do something a little bit different. I've collected one photo from each month this past year. Some are favorite outfits, some memories associated with the original post, etc. It was really tough to choose, but I hope you all enjoy! This blog has grown so much this year, and it's going to grow even more this up coming year!
January I discovered the singer, Natalia Kills. Although I don't listen to her music that much anymore, I am still so in love with her sense of style and bad ass vibes. I honestly don't remember a lot from February. But I do remember this amazing outfit! I feel like it might need to make a comeback.
March was pretty chill. (Yup, that's it.)
 April was so great, because of Easter! Usually I do something semi-boring with family, but this year I got to spend it with friends. I honestly think about this memory a lot, and I really miss that day. This month is also important, because for the first time in almost four years I changed my hair! 
  May AKA I graduated high school!! I also dyed my hair a copper-ish color and had my first taste of technicolor hair dye. Can it get any better than that??? June was weird. I don't remember much from this month (except Europe), but working a lot.
 So, um, Europe!! I technically went in June, but made the post about the glorious adventure in July. So you know, why not?! This was such an amazing experience, and I still can't believe I went! I honestly cannot wait to go back either- ESPECIALLY France.
Pink hair! College! Oh my August, was crazy! This month was so emotional for me on so many levels.
September was really hard.  I had to grow up a lot since I was living on my own. I was really depressed that month and most of my days were filled with panic attacks, bad diets, and long naps. I can't remember for sure, but I think it was around the end of this month when I realized college was not for me. At least right now in my life. 
 October wasn't very good either, but I discovered I make one hell of a Beetlejuice! November was really weird. To sum it up, I never cleaned and I ended up sleeping on old ramen noodles for almost an entire week (this was not intentional by the way). December! Where did it even go??? I swear, this month flew by so quick. Just yesterday I sat thinking, "How is this month already over?" In a nutshell, things are starting to look brighter!
Okay, this year I have decided to not make any New Years resolutions. This is due to many reasons, but the main reason is quite simple: I think it's really stupid to have resolutions for yourself for a whole year. Really and truly, everyone should have resolutions for themselves everyday. I'm sick of not pushing myself to my full potential, and it stops here. 2015 here I come!


  1. sorry to hear most of your year was fraught with panic and bad feels Tessa, but hopefully 2015 will herald bigger and better things and allow you to re-focus. Enjoyed seeing a round up of your year, as well as your feelings about the year that was
    and I totally agree with you, change begins with what's inside you and not some calender hysteria

    1. Yeah... I'm just glad it's finally over with! 2015 is going to be full of re-focus and fun. It's going to be great :-)
