What a year. Only hours left to spend 2011 and enjoy it to the fullest. As we speak I'm snuggling on the sofa while it's a real winter wonderland outside, will go skiing afterwards. But for now I just want to think of the past 356 days. I'm not the kinda person who makes New Years resolution but if I had to it def would be "follow in 2011's footsteps and exceed". Why? Well, I use to say that in May of 2011 IOWA experienced its renaissance. In May I started to blog regularly, filled with even more enthusiasm and careless about people gossiping. I've been featured in quite a lot publications (like the New York Times Online, Jolie Germany), did a photo shoot for Glamour Germany (which is still to be released), attended the MQ Vienna Fashion Week and some other blogger meetings, contributed to some Online Magazines like Frock&Roll, collaborated with companies like the Sunglasses shop and last but not least, IOWA became SKIR's "Buzz Blog of the Year" plus a part of Blogger's Wardrobe. But I also traveled to Paris, Prague and Amsterdam - on and off duty - my parents moved to Switzerland - home^3 - I moved to my very own apartment which I'll leave again in 2012 - very likely - AND met the love of my life who supports and encourages me in every way.
What shall I say? It happened a lot this year and I'm already looking forward to 2012 since there are some bright prospects waiting for me just as the MB New York Fashion Week in February and a really cool internship (more about that in 2012) - just to name a few.
Hope you all have an amazing last night of 2011 and enjoy IOWA's 2011 recap in pictures (below)!
See you next year,
