{I love this Emilio Pucci dress! The styling I did in this post for a late Summer party was one of my favourites!}

This year has been a huge year for me. There’s been many upheavals & changes, new jobs, new friends (including, a new cat!) but it’s also been a year where I’ve made some big life decisions. Some of them may not seem big to those on the outside looking in but for me they were. Even though, I’m not exactly where I was hoping to be by the end of this year (my expectations & ambitions are always crazy-high!), I’m still very happy with what I have achieved & I’m, by no means, ever changing how high & hard I strive to be better at what I’m doing. But I always remember, I’m not trying to outdo anyone else, I’m trying to be a better version of myself & outdo my own personal bests. I’m hoping to do a whole heap more of that come 2016. Bring it on! But before we wish goodbye to 2015, I wanted to take a look at some of my favourite photos from this year.
