I'm Back! | Looking Back at 2016

recap, new year, 2017, 2016, my journey, success

Hey everyone! I am back from my little hiatus from blogging. I got super busy with finals and that eventually led to a huge blogging rut but I do think it was good to have a little time off. What better way to start off the year and the end of my blogging break than with a quick recap of some of my 2016 highlights?

2016 was an eventful year to say the least. I definitely learned a lot more about myself and developed more skill in things I enjoy doing. I started my blog which is huge for me since I never saw myself actually doing it before, but here I am! Elegantlychiic was created on a slight whim and grew so quickly which I can't even put into words how thankful I am for that. I never knew that blogging would let me meet so many cool people and would teach me so much.

  • At the very start of the year I chopped off my hair for a fresher look and now it's almost completely grown out to the length it was before which is great because the little things like wearing a ponytail is now possible. 

  • I also worked my booty off to do really good during second semester which thankfully I did better than any other of my high school semesters. I also started my senior year in high school while simultaneously being a freshman in college (who could say no to free college??) 

  • I attended my first ever wedding which was for my cousin in Texas and it was pretty eventful (more like wild) which you know means I had a great time. Bridezilla is real people!! 

  • I started taking better care of my skin and that has definitely paid off, I got my skin care routine down  (yay blog post idea!) and I rarely get bad breakouts...compared to when I used to get one every other week yikes

  • I also got my first job and making money is so great especially cause I can buy things without my parents saying "no",  freedom!! 

  • I ventured off into the makeup world and have definitely learned so much. I started trying new things with makeup instead of being closed off to anything but my necessities. I tried out new foundations, I got the Morphe 35O Nature Glow Palette which I have been eyeing almost the entirety of 2016, and I started my Ipsy subscription which I am obsessed with by the way! 

This was just a quick super informal post about some of my 2016 highlights for me to look back on one day so if it isn't up to par don't worry, "real" blog posts will be coming up soon! If you read through the entire post I applaud you :))

What was your favorite memory of 2016?
