2009 was an amazing year for me - I started Live Glam or Die in February as a wardrobe diary to log my daily outfits and observe how my clothing choices and style constantly evolved and what influenced the changes. Since then, I have met so many beautiful people who continue to inspire me every day. Thank you so much for reading and let's continue this fun, fashionable journey into 2010!
Besides the excitement of a new blog, 2009 was filled with so many other exhilarating adventures. In June/July, Clay and I spent 3 ½ weeks in Europe visiting Greece and the Netherlands - the countries of our ancestors (I'm half Greek, Clay is Dutch):
Being my second time in Greece, this visit was even more exciting than the first. I love everything about this country - the people, the food, the music. I can't wait to go back!
Amsterdam was SO MUCH FUN - I could live there for sure! The people were amazing and not to mention the shopping! I came back with tons of fabulous finds and even better memories!
Possibly the most thrilling part of 2009 was when I was selected as one of the 25 finalists from across Canada for the 2009 Télio Design Competition. My earth-themed dress was featured in a show during Montréal Fashion Week (and even had a cameo on FashionTV)! The experience was so surreal and amazing, I could do this forever...
Other highlights of 2009 included turning 21 (finally!!!), seeing some of my favorite bands including Kings of Leon (front row!), White Lies (front row!), and Coldplay, completing another year of university , and countless beautiful memories made with my family, friends, and YOU!
2010 holds lots of amazing things for me - I graduate from university in May and then I'm not sure where life will take me but I'm sure it will be somewhere fabulous! Thank-you for reading and let's make the start of this new decade a year to remember!
xoxo Much love,
