12 HIGHLIGHTS OF MY YEAR

i had a really good time going through a bunch of blog photos on my laptop yesterday. i might have even teared up. while wearing . i’ve been trying to take a couple extra days off this week (since spending time with family is cool and all, but i wouldn’t necessarily call it relaxing. in my case at least.) here’s a look at some of my favorite moments & posts in 2013…

my trip to stockholm (and italy with two of my best friends). seriously changed my perspective on a lot of things. and started a martini kick.

my living room got a serious makeover here.

i was able to create some beautiful posts with my best friend. this valentine’s day “single gals party” was a favorite. good bonding action and i’m always learning from jen.

i love doing the style shoots. (like this topshop 60’s shoot above) while they are more work than just shooting an outfit out on the sidewalk, they are just so fun. recreating a time period or a vibe and watching it come to life. good times. or that time i went brunette!

the backyard mixology party was so relaxing and came out just how i imagined it. and too!

. he’s always a highlight of my year. i don’t go into a lot of details about our relationship (my dude is the private type) but i really love him. like i said earlier today, freelance life for both of us has been hard. we both probably need to sleep more and spend more dinners not talking about work. but there’s nothing better than watching him working on a cool project he loves. i can’t wait for thailand. adventure awaits us. the photo above is from our trip to barcelona in march.

one of my favorite memories for SURE was the designlovefest palm springs trip. we had a girls getaway and . gosh that was the best.

speaking of girlfriend time. my birthday party this year, when natalie made us all birthday crowns, we rented a limo and went on a photo booth tour. how am i gonna top that this year!?

working with benefit cosmetics! reenacting my four dream jobs: the jazz singer, the florist, the detective and the circus performer. 

getting a for designlovefest. moving out of the space with all my guy friends wasn’t easy but i really love having a place to create, shoot, think, and spread out. (here’s photos from my last office, it was pretty tiny!) and yes, the napping tent gets used from time to time after too much travel. hiring my first full-time employee was also a big milestone for me.

it’s always a highlight to watch all of the blogshops happen. i still get a rush before the students arrive, setting everything up perfect for them.

and this was only a few weeks ago, but it was AWESOME! gift wrapping party with close friends here.

thanks for reminiscing with me! xo bri

CHEERS, 2013

wow, what a YEAR! i’ve learned more this year than ever before. and one of the biggest things i’ve learned is that you have to just manifest your dreams to come true. and don’t stop till they do. it sounds cheesy, but it’s true. i probably overdid it, worked too many days this year, and didn’t really practice “healthy balance” at ALL. every month i told myself i was going to “do less next month” and then would somehow do more. but i was really happy in the process. one of my big goals this year was to launch  (check) and my goal next year is to travel somewhere once a month. (we just impulsively booked a trip to thailand in february!) my mind spins with ideas the most when i’m in a new environment.

arian and i are headed to tahoe to be with my dad and little brothers for christmas. we are driving there, and i have these visions of us broken down on the side of the road in tons of snow. hopefully that’s not the case. i’m really happy to be spending the holiday with arian too (although i feel bad for stealing him away from his family this year) two freelancers living under one roof can be VERY stressful. lots of late nights, not a lot of stability or schedule. we really need this quality time to just be together outside of our own home for a few days (his office.) my family always goes to a lot of movies during the holidays, and it looks like there’s a lot of good ones out this year. mostly, i’m looking forward to just taking it easy. wishing you all a very happy holiday. see you back here in 2014, cheers! –bri
