2012 is ending and, boy, has it been a fast yet memorable year. Despite the fact that I overused my credit card, made stupid mistakes in Bangkok, cried a lot over a guy who wasn't worth my tears, lost a lot of friends, did a few things that I truly regret, moved back into my parents' house, and broke off all contact with the babydaddy for good, I can say that 2012 is one of the most cherished years of my life.
The list I mentioned above may all sound negative at first glance, but I learned so many new lessons in 2012 because of them. Let me share those lessons with you throughout this outfit post (all photos by Gerd Perez):
black leather zipper bag from Jimmy Choo
I am thankful that I overused my credit card because I now have a New Year's resolution to fulfill and a goal to finish to make my dad proud and to prove to him how committed I can be.

black ruffled pants from Penshoppe
black Prada-inspired sunglasses from House of Luxe
I am thankful that I lost a lot of friends along the way because it helped me differentiate true friends from fake friends and I am now blessed with the greatest friends in the world - ones who will never doubt me, who will never talk shit behind my back and who will never use other people for fame or recognition.

I am thankful that I did a few things that I truly regret because it made me re-evaluate my morals and my life, in general.
I am even thankful that I moved back into my parents' house and broke off all contact with the babydaddy for good because I will now be able to focus on saving more money and raising my daughter the way she deserves to be raised.

So, there you have it: proof that every dark cloud has a silver lining and that every emo girl actually has a positive side to her. :p
This 2013, let's not aim for change, but for becoming a better person overall. I'm blessed, thankful and so happy that I am starting 2013 on a good note: with great friends, supportive family members, and the best boyfriend in the world by my side.
Here's to nothing but positive vibes this 2013! :)
Happy New Year!
