Goodbye 2015

So it's the last day of 2015 over here in Australia! I always like to gravitate towards red for party looks (it's such a bold colour that speaks volumes!) and this high-neck backless number from Dissh is hitting all the right notes for me. I matched it with these red heels from DSW as I've been lusting after a pair of lace-up heels for a while after seeing them everywhere, and the bright red colour makes such a bold statement.

So how did this year go for me? I continued to learn a lot and strived to learn more, which for me is what I consider the marker of success and personal growth. Not a lot of things went my way this year, and I sacrificed a few things. Work dominated my life to a greater extent than before and it came at the expense of my mental and physical health. I put my active wear business aside because I didn't have the time anymore with how busy my daytime job was getting, let alone have the time for family and friends. 

But I did learn to re-prioritise my values and goals, and my understanding of success and achievement morphed into an inclusion of family, supportive relationships, good health and tolerance. Rather than making money and growing social media, I developed a deeper appreciation for intangible wealth. As they say, if you want to feel rich, have a look at all the things you have that money can't buy :)

I'm really looking forward to 2016 as I've set myself on a new career path (interior design), which I just started studying and I'm really excited to see where that will take me. I'm a very curious person who loves to learn and I seem to have an innate desire to try my hand at every industry. I also locked in flights to Japan in March and I can't wait to explore this amazing country I last visited an entire decade ago. I also can't wait to spend more time with my boyfriend and continue to develop our beautiful relationship further. How did everyone else's 2015 go? :)
