A Look Back At 2017 & Happy New Year 2018!


What a year 2017 has been! I’m still in aw that the year is over! As I take a look back, I realize how much I’ve truly grown, learned, and overcome. Sometime, you forget or overlook all the (great) things that happened until you look back and reflect upon them. In spite of all the chaos that may have happened, whether it’s in our own life or around the world, there’s always something to be grateful for when we pose for just a quick second and reflect; and we may just be amazed of how beautiful, life (still) is!

“Clear hindsight of your past makes it easier to have clear foresight for your future.”

2017  has been an epic year for me and for my brand!  My word of the year 2017 was “Manifest” (Read about it here) and I couldn’t be any more grateful for all the things that I accomplished and manifested. The amazing brands that I collaborated with, the shout-out and features, the constant support from my loyal readers and friends, new and amazing friends that I made or met, the launch of my online store and the growth in general that I have experienced as a blogger and entrepreneur, and even as a person! I wouldn’t sit here and lie that all of these were some easy walk-in-the-park moments (because they weren’t!), but with discipline, consistency and FAITH, it was all possible! Trust me, It hasn’t been easy even being disciplined and consistent or always keeping my head up with a positive attitude, but I know I’m a work in progress. Transformation is a journey without a final destination; and I can’t wait to see what my next chapter of the new book will read!

To all of you who have been of such great support since Day One, and all through out the years, I’m truly thankful for your continuous support, for sticking with me, and for allowing me to share my journey with you. It truly means a lot! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Let’s make 2018 an even better year!

From my family to yours, I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

  • Love yourself a little more 😉 
  • Live each day with intention and purpose
  • Start that new passion of yours
  • Develop new and fulfilling relationships
  • Live in the moment and to the fullest
  • Visit new and exciting places
  • Accomplish all your goals and win big!

 Cheers to a wonderful 2018!

Love & Light
