Reminisce

This post will clock in as the finale of Heart, Print & Style 2011. It was a pretty darn good year - blogging wise. So sit back, relax (with a glass of wine) and enjoy this month-to-month recap of my outfits and a few highlights in between.

January/February


I honestly don't know why I was not blogging much during these two months. Weird. Anywho, I was featured on Afro Style.
March


This was the month that I really became serious with HPandS. I went to my first DC fashion related event, Closet Runway. Also, I was featured on Madison Plus.

April


I started to discover other DC bloggers ever so randomly. You click on one blog which leads you to the next one that leads you to the next one, and so forth and so on. That's how I discovered Alison. Then she told me about an up and coming bloggers group (formerly) called DC FABB (the new name is now CapFABB). They were planning their 2nd meetup at a local DC bar. Seeing as to how I wanted to connect with other bloggers like myself, I was all for attending. 

May



June


Backstreet's back, alright! Headed to my beloved BSB concert. Twice. Visited Jersey Shore for the first and last time. (Both of these events occurred on Memorial Day weekend but I posted about them in June). I was featured on Stylish Curves as a Stylish Curves of the Day. 

July



I went to my first clothing swap. Very interesting experience. Checked out the Alexander McQueen exhibit and feeling like a rebel, took pictures of his work when we were specifically told not to. *pops collar* Attended the 2nd Annual DC Africa Festival which was organized by my lovely sister, Zi. Overcoming my fear, I finally did an outfit post wearing a sleeveless dress. I blame the atrocious hot weather.

August



Traveled to Vegas and Boston. Attended the monthly CapFABB meetup

September


I had so much fun meeting up with so many bloggers (including Katherine, Jen, Katie, Sade, Alisa, Nadia, Marley, etc.) at the IFB Conference in NYC. Also, the beginning of the Fall TV Season started this month. I did a post on it here. Funny enough, from the shows I've listed, I only watched one of them - Pan Am. Ha! The other new shows that I love and watch are: Revenge, Homeland, Up All Night and Boss.  

October



Birthday month! Libra in house! woop, woop. This month also marked my 1 year blog anniversary. I forgot to celebrate. Ah well, I'm celebrating now. *blows into a party blower* Checked out Taste of DC. Great times at the grand opening of LOFT in Georgetown. And, of course, CapFABB monthly meetup

November 


So, I ball so hard, motherfuckers wanna fine me. Okay, not really. But I and the sis did wild out at the Watch The Throne concert. Right before that, I went to the Refinery 29 DC launch party at Madewell. OMWord, that was so much fun. In short, that was just a fun day. Period. Tried my hand as a stylist for a day at Eddie Bauer. Supported Chyanne at her event at Urban Chic. And finally, went to Vice As If launch party and a private Ann Taylor event. I was featured on Glam Soup. If you want to see how awkward I am on camera, here's your chance.

December


Last CapFABB meetup of the year. Went to support Katherine and her holiday lookbook launch. Bloggers Night Out (BNO) brought their talents to DC. Unloaded a whole rack of clothes at a style swap and brought back a spiffy statement sweater. The start of the 2011-12 NBA Season! Skorch Magazine approached me to be a blogger for their online magazine. I was featured on Wardrobe Oxygen and Plus Model Magazine's Fashion Friday

Just want to thank everyone, from the followers to the lurkers to the wonderful people that I have met, for supporting this blog. All the comments...all the emails, I read each one and I am truly grateful. One of the main reasons why I installed the Disqus app was to reply back to each comment that I receive, knowing that my reply will be sent to your email box. iCare. 

I don't know know what's in store for Heart, Print & Style in 2012 but I can't wait. 

Wishing everyone a safe New Year weekend!
