FBFF: 2012 In Review


Adventure: 2012 had a ton of adventure for me, including zip lining in Las Vegas and through the Redwoods ~ riding an ATV bomber as part of Kipu Ranch tours in Kaua'i ~ going on a helicopter tour over mountains, canyons, waterfalls and the Napali Coast in Hawai'i ~ an authentic island laua ~ tubing and sledding in Tahoe (who knew a plastic board over snow could be so much fun?).Travel: Who doesn't love to visit cool places? I was fortunate enough to go to Florida twice, New York for Lucky Fabb, Tahoe, Reno, Santa Cruz, Napa, Los Angeles and Hawai'i. Features: I was featured on more than 10 fashion blogs and seen on other fashionable websites like Glamour, Lucky, Copious, In Pink, Fashion Bomb Daily, Chictopia and MTV.Also, I turned 26 last year. And for some reason I feel like once you hit 27 you are a certified adult. I don't know why, but 27 just sounds so much more adult-like than any age before it. For me, 27 still means that I get carded. Recently, I had this conversation with a flight attendant:

"Wow, I thought you were a child until I saw your wedding ring."
"How old do you think I look?"
"No, I don't want to say...you just look young."
"Seriously, it's OK. Do I look like I'm in high school?"
"Like 17?"
"Lol, yeah around that age."
"I get it all the time."

It's nice (some times) to look an entire 10 years younger. Maybe I'll get carded for the next 4 years.
I hope you all had a fun 2012 too!

  1. Gorgeous pictures...lots of adventures :))) It's good to be able to look back and see all the fun you had. I hope the new year brings even more of these times for you :) Haha...I still get asked for my age at times, it can be funny. I just hope when I'm really older, this still happens...then I'll think it's the coolest ;) Have a great weekend doll!

  2. You had a stellar year for sure, Cheryl! Congrats. So amazing the stuff that you were able to do, which just makes me think what the heck have I been doing? :P And only you can go tubing and still look chic:)

  3. It looks like it was a great year! You are still young and should definitely revel in looking young (getting carded after 30 can be kinda nice!)

  26. It sounds like you've had an amazing year. It really is nice to be told you look younger than you are. Now that I am nearing 29, when people tell me I look younger, it makes me that much happier :)


  27. I am the same! I always get mistaken for a teenager even though I am 23 and now that I am married it is very surprising for lots of people. I don't know what it is about me that makes people think that. I always see it as a good thing! Love all your photos from the year and I am looking forward to seeing more of your blog this year.

  28. yes, looking 10 yrs younger is a great thing!! the photos look like such a great adventure!
