As 2012 starts, I am filled with memories of the year past. I feel extremely lucky to be able to live the life that I have experienced over the past year. Starting out the year in Canada and being featured on CHCH Morning Live TV show was quite an adventure! You can see my “behind the scenes” video here!
After returning to Paris, Fashion Week was next on my timeline. I got invited to my first fashion shows and even found myself sitting front row at some of the venues! I got to mingle with celebrities, fashion writers and editors and loved every minute of it!
Spring time was filled with small trips in and around Paris. Monet’s house in Giverny was one of the places I visited, and won’t soon forget. It was beautiful and filled with spring flowers.
I spent my birthday eating cake at Laduree with my parents, then shopping in Chanel with my boyfriend!
The summer went by quickly spending 3 weeks in England, and small vacations to Venice and Ibiza with my boyfriend.
I wrote a series of articles for Canadian magazine, “A Needle Pulling Thread,” and continued to make and sell jewelry from my website www.glimpsebeads.com
Before I knew it, Paris Fashion Week was here again and I was invited to some of the Spring/Summer 2012 collections. I was thrilled to be going to shows again, and enjoyed every minute of seeing the clothes come down the runway. I also love getting to see celebrities and famous editors at the shows! I photographed celebrities such as Uma Thurman, Jessica Biel, Leighton Meester and Jared Leto!
Attending fashion week, I was lucky to be featured in the Hamilton Spectator newspaper along with my jewelry inspired by the runway looks! During fashion week, I was also able to meet a couple of fashion icons! Anna Dello Russo and Rachel Zoe were kind enough to stop and talk and take a couple of pictures with me!
I spent Christmas in Canada with my family, but made it back in time for New Years Eve at the Eiffel Tower! It has been such a wonderful, adventure packed year! I can only hope that 2012 will be just as exciting!
