Welcoming 2013 with open arms!!

HAPPY NEW YEARS Ladies!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and New Years! I know I did. Santa was very good to me this year and I was able to travel home (NJ) for the New year. I cried like a baby when I had to return to NC. Everytime I have to leave and come back down  here I get so upset. I don't ever plan on moving back to NJ but I just really miss my family at times. I know NC is where I need to be for now. But anywho, 2012 was an awesome year for me. I know Fat Girl Fresh was supposed to be about Fashion but it turned into so much more. I started this blog because I felt like I trapped myself in a place I didn't want to be (fashionably) and wanted to give myself a challenge and be able to express how I feel on the inside, on the outside... if that  makes any sense? lol Depression is a B.I.T.C.H. and I never even really knew I was dealing with it until I moved out of my element and seen things for what they were. I always tried to keep myself up but I was so stressed over bills, money etc and just got discouraged. I don't think I ever really used my full creative potential lol. Once I stopped stressing over things I had no control over, I was able to focus on myself. I decided I am going to be the person I want to be. For me that was a big step. At the time I was being the person I had to be. Now that I feel like I have a better understanding of who I am, I feel a little free, like I can shine my light now. It feels awesome! Things are not perfect but I'm learning how to live everyday for that day. 2012 taught me alot of things and I am so greatful God has given me the wisdom and understanding I've been praying for. I am beyond excited to see what happens in 2013. Fashion wise, I feel like I am evolving. My style has definitely changed and I am being more frugal which feels even better!

I put together my pics from 2012 not just for you all but for myself to see where I've come and where I'm going. Hope this post wasn't too long but sometimes I really want to talk about other things not just Fashion. lol. Well have a good day and may 2013 bring many many blessings for you all!
