Two thousand twelve was an undeniably amazing year for me, filled with many opportunities and life-lasting experiences.
(The Twilight star was hot, but let’s be serious. Standing mere feet away from the Olsen twins for the second time in my life was the freaking highlight of my year.)
Ali and I spent a few days in Fort Lauderdale soaking up sunshine.
I celebrated my 21st birthday with family and friends at Hightopps Backstage Grille.
Within three days of moving to the Big Apple, I was offered a nannying position in the Hamptons and had the chance to escape the city for a few weekends at the beach.
In between hauling my crap across town on the subway, I took a last-minute trip to Miami with Natalie and our friends, Rachel and Misty.
The week started with a Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kick-off party, and ended with plenty of shirtless men.
Back in the city, I walked the Brooklyn Bridge and happened to see Lea Michele filming a scene for Glee.
My family visited me in New York–we walked the High Line, saw the Barbie exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Technology Museum, and enjoyed sprinkle-covered ice cream cones.
I obsessed over the Spring 2013 collections during Fashion Week in September, and spotted the Hilton sisters, Lauren Conrad, and Sarah Jessica Parker (better known as Carrie Bradshaw in my mind).
Here’s to hoping that 2013 is even more fun and challenging.
Happy New Year! xo, CK
