Twenty Twelve is closing just as it began, quietly and beautifully, in awe of the simpler things in life. This post is 2012 in images, an idea gathered from the lovely Katie over at What Katie Does. Her blog is one of my many favourites and has been such an inspiration to me, as both a designer and a blogger. Twenty twelve has honestly been the best year of my life. I finally found my niche, my passion and fingers crossed, my future career. I have 19 days left until my last assignment, and then one month until it's graduation. After that I am officially a qualified graphic designer. Something tells me 2013 is going to be nothing like I am expecting or can imagine. And I am so so excited. But before midnight rolls around, I leave you with my 2012 through a lens. I hope your year was as beautiful as mine, and if not, I hope 2013 is your year, and so much more. x

Love and light,
So every year I receive way more than I ever ask for. I am always so incredibly blessed and am given so many nice things. I may also do a youtube video for this haul, so stay tuned for that. Also these photos were edited using stunning photoshop actions from http://posterpsd.tumblr.com
Typo Clock & Owl: I adore these. The owl goes perfect with the rest of my room (white and birds) and the clock looks very beautiful next to my vintage editions of Wuthering Heights and To Kill A Mockingbird (the spines are red).
THG Series: I already own these but the new are covers are to die for. I am in love with the silver foil, minimal design and colour consistency. Props to my brothers GF who mentioned these to him are seeing me freak out over them on instagram.
Stella by Stella McCartney: I have never owned anything by Stella McCartney but the package and bottle won me over straight away. The scent is a little more mature then I usually wear but is very deep, floral and a little understatedly sexy.
Heat by Beyonce: I love this perfume. Very inexpensive, cute, sweet and girly. Both my mum and I love it, in fact she bought me this for christmas while my brother bought her exactly the same thing.
iPhone Case: This iphone case is actually a photo a friend took of a stained glassed window in Italy and looks stunning on absolutely anything.
Max Brenner's Hug Mug: These mugs are the cutest thing to drink hot chocolate out of. Holding it so close keeps you so warm and snuggly.
I hope you all had an amazing christmas also.
What did you all get from Santa this year?
Just a collection of images from today: a shopping trip which included jewellery from Diva (I am in love with the initial bracelet - it's so simple and pretty), a sheer turquoise singlet and black cut out dress (not pictured) from Cotton On. I also wrapped my christmas presents and used stunning labels from the incredibly talented Lindsey Buck and finally I snapped a picture of christmas card given to me by a friend. Lani is also incredibly talented and you should check out her big cartel store. Her illustrations are to die for and get clicking and go and buy up big!
Three sleeps til Santa,
