Top 10 Memories From 2017…January 4, 2018
2. I hit 10,000!
As a Fashion Blogger I am constantly trying to create new content, new blog posts and grow my audience. This year was a huge year of learning and growing. I hit my first big milestone with my followers and surpassed 10,000! I know when compared to a lot of very successful and big time bloggers it is small in comparison, but it was a huge milestone for me! I had set a goal that I wanted to reach 10,000 and I made it! And I am still growing! There is nothing more satisfying than setting goals for yourself and accomplishing them. So thank you for being a part of my journey and cheering me on all year! I can’t wait to share 2018 with you all as well! I owe everything to my readers. Without you I wouldn’t be where I am today. All of you make this blog possible.
3. We went to Las Vegas to see The Backstreet Boys!
You may laugh a little bit at my #3. But this was all my teenage girl dreams come true! When I was in 6th grade I got tickets for my birthday to see The Backstreet Boys. This was on their ‘Black & Blue’ tour, for all you ladies (or gents) who know what I’m talking about. Since I have gotten older I promised myself that if The Backstreet Boys ever did another show again, I would do anything to go. So Colin surprised me with tickets in March and we ended up going in April! It was an amazing show and it was everything I had hoped it would be. While we were in Vegas we got to visit The Neon Museum and The Seven Magic Mountains, which was on my bucket list! Both phenomenal places.
4. I got hair extensions!
This was a big deal for me this year. I had thought about it long and hard, and finally decided to take the jump in May of 2017. I had a lot of hair problems and thinning leading up to May. I decided to turn to extensions for my answer. I had done a lot of research and went with Tape-In extensions. They are a huge commitment and a lot of upkeep, but I have loved every minute of it! It has been a huge game changer and confidence booster for me. I am planning on doing a separate post all about hair extensions and the questions I get; so stayed tuned. But in the mean time, I use Honey Hair Extensions and you can find them here.
7. I turned 24!
This will always be a big event for me! I love birthdays and have always grown up celebrating birthdays and making a big deal out of them. So I will always be excited to celebrate my age! I did a fun photo shoot with confetti to celebrate, and it was probably one of my favorite photo shoots of the year. There is something so fun about a sequin dress and confetti!
8. I Was a part of the Kneaders ‘Hope Fights Childhood Cancer’ Campaign!
I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the Kneaders ‘Hope Fights Childhood Cancer’ Campaign that took place in September. It was one of my biggest campaigns to date and I was so honored to be part of such an amazing cause. There were so many touching stories and I met so many amazing people. It was definitely life changing. Kneaders raises money every year to help fund cancer research. To read more about this amazing cause and how you can help this year, read my post all about the 2017 campaign.
9. Went to my very first fashion show at City Creek!
Being a fashion blogger I have always wanted to go to a fashion show! I love all things fashion and it has always been my dream to attend shows. This summer I was approached by City Creek to attend a fall fashion show at the City Creek mall in Salt Lake City. I sat in the front row, with a chair that had my name on it, and was able to watch all the pieces that were coming to stores and were going to be trending that fall. It was such a fun experience and I loved every minute! It felt like the royal treatment and it’s a goal to attend many more shows in the future! This is the outfit I wore to the show!
10. I opened up about my mental health & quit my job!
This was probably the biggest event for me this past year. I opened up about my struggle with depression, and that being aware about your own mental health is not a bad thing. It is so important and important to take care of yourself. If you want to read more about my experience you can find that post here.
In the process of figuring out what was best for myself I also quit my job, partially, and will only be working 2 days a week. Full time has become a little too much and I need to take a step back to work on myself. I am also excited to be working on my blog a few days a week in the mean time. It was another contributing factor that lead to me wanting to quit my job. You can read more about that in my latest post here.
bonus: I feel like this was such a big year for me as a person, and me as a blogger. I feel like I really grew into my brand and my style. I also feel like I have come to know myself a lot better, and have come to terms with the fact that it is okay to need help.
I accomplished a lot this year and hit a lot of my goals! It was so fun seeing ‘A Pretty Penny’ grow and become something more than I could have imagined this year! I have so many big plans for myself and my blog, and I can’t wait to make them come to life this next year!
Thank you so much for all being a part of my 2017 and this blog. I am so excited for what 2018 has to hold and I can’t wait to share it all with you!
