With just under two weeks until we welcome 2012, I thought I'd take ten minutes to write you a little corny (love)note, and share a round-up of this year's outfits. This past year has been a complete blur to me. I can barely seperate each moment from the last: everything, online and in real life, has happened at breakneck speed! I've now been blogging for 23 months, all you see here right now has been nearly two years in the making.

I'm not one for talking numbers for the most part, but this time last year, I celebrated 500 followers, and as I type, I've just reached 2200 Google Friend Connect readers, and over 5000 collective readers. From someone who is - or was - painfully shy, I can't even describe how crazy it feels for this amount of people to even know my name! It's really surreal to bump into people in the street who read my blog and say hello to me, my friends think I'm a Z-list celeb of come sort, hahaha.

This year also saw me at London Fashion Week: twice. I'm a budding fashion journo/writer at heart, so to be granted accreditation and offered invites via a place I use to witter on about my favourite shirt and accidental purchases is a little bit mad! I'm so grateful for the opportunities I've had through DB, and even more so for the friends I've made from hopping along to events. I'm sure the likes of Bee, Emma, Kim and Victoria enjoy the odd text from me at 2am, swaying along to Taylor Swift and attempting to text them my love!

So, enough of the cheese. I just wanted to write this as a huge thanks to everyone who has read or commented my blog this year, I'm still finding my feet but I think I'm finally on my way after almost two years. Big love, and stay safe this New Year's - I'm braving London for the fireworks! - and I'll see you on the other side lovely ladies (and gents)!

I'm working on a 2011 recap post, but I keep getting distracted (by biscuits and cheesy TV) I hope that your success continues into 2012, and having met you in person I know that you are a hugely intelligent and dedicated person, so whatever you do I know you will do amazingly! lovelove, Lauren x
