2012 has been an epic year for me. So much has changed since the beginning of this year. I’ve discovered a lot of things about myself and taken steps to take my life into my own hands.
On the blogging scene, my blog has evolved from a mere dream to a reality I face every single day. There are days when it’s the reason I wake up and then there are those few moments when I have absolutely no motivation to blog.
In line with the IFB project this week I’ve decided to put together some of my most memorable blogging moments of 2012 are:-
1. Getting a new blog design and name
I finally managed to come up with a name for my blog that encompasses all that I would like it to be, Inches To Style, and redesigned my blog.
2. Relocating from New Delhi, India to Nairobi, Kenya
My move back home has really helped me focus my blog content more towards a Kenyan audience. This is keeping in line with the reason I started Inches To Style.
3. Style Evolution
My style has changed a great deal ever since I came back home. I now prefer dresses and more feminine pieces but I still go for statement accessories.
4. Awards and New Opportunities
I received a number of blogger awards this year of which I’m so honoured and grateful.
I also did my first guest post and started networking with fellow Kenyans in the fashion industry.
5. I Learned A lot
I can honestly say even though my 2012 resolutions were quite different, I’m at a different place now than I was eleven months ago. I’ve learnt so much, met amazing people and pushed myself to sites I would never have dreamed of. Alongside inspiration from various people, this video of Beyonce has been a constant reminder of all that I want to achieve and how hardwork, patience, persistence and relying completely on God will help me achieve my dreams.
“I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseperable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world. I run my world.” ~ Beyonce
A big hug to all of you who made this year what it was. I hope that next year we will have as many adventures as we did and learn a lot in the process.

Video: What I wore in a week
One of the things I promised myself I would do, ever since this pandemic started and life slowed down, is that I would dress up every single day. Granted, I had nowhere to go, but putting on an outfit, no matter how simple, uplifted my…
