Hello everyone & happy last day of 2011!
I'm not a big 'New Year's Resolution' maker, but upon looking at last year's post on this day I did happen to make one that I had completely forgot about. At this time last year I was suffering terribly from my OCD. It was taking my life over. I couldn't eat, I could sleep, I didn't want to go to school, or do anything at frankly. I felt so helpless and defeated and didn't know where to turn to. Last year I made the resoltion to overcome my OCD, and you all know what? I did.

I'm so proud of myself and how far I've come in just a year. Yes, I did have to resort to medicine to help beat OCD, but that doesn't mean I didn't have to fight it on my own either. I truly never though that I'd be able to get away from all that I was suffering, but I proved myself wrong. And I couldn't be happier.

So this year what's my resolution? Hmm it's a tough one. I always feel like when I make resolutions I set myself up too high, and then get disappointed when I can't succeed. I know I want to try and eat healthier and exercise more this year because 2011 was a rough year for me regarding body image, but I'm afraid of letting myself down if I can't. So I suppose I'll make an unofficial New Year's Resolution. To have a healthy and happy year. To make 2012 the best year yet

Love you all and have a beautiful New Year's...
With much love, Lauren.

I literally am not exaggerating when I say I feel like I just took some of these outfit photos yesterday! From a style standpoint 2011 was the best year I've had yet. I'm proud of myself and the style I've begun to develop, and I'm only more excited to see how my style evolves in 2012!
