As 2012 comes to an end, I decided to take a look back at my posts from this year and highlight my favorite from each month. I can’t believe how quickly this year passed! Going through my archives brought back so many happy memories and having a record of the everyday details, which are often the most special, is one of the best parts of blogging.
A few things I noticed while looking back on 2012:
- There were a few drastic hair color changes! I started out the year with a silvery gray color before softening it a little to a platinum blond. After almost a year of varying shades of white, I decided to saturate my hair in a fiery red color. (Claire Danes was one hundred percent my inspiration.) While I liked the red, it never quite felt like me, and smitten with the pastel hair trend, I made the change to pink.
- I became obsessed with nail art. While I spent half of 2011 on a beach with bare nails (and a tan), 2012 was the year for experimenting with everything from clouds to polka dots to leopard print. I don’t see this obsession ceasing any time soon, so expect more nail art in 2013!
- And, not to brag, but Style by Santina saw its fair share of features this year, including: The Bold Italic, The New York Times Street Style (quite a few times), Mira Mira blog, and the biggest pinch me moment – in Marie Claire!
Thank you all for following along with me in 2012. Your comments, tweets, and Instagram love mean so much to me and I look forward to seeing what 2013 holds for us all!
