Inspiration: Looking Forward to 2016!

Welcome to the New Year! 2016. has been here for a good amount of days. While I like making New Years resolutions, I have decided to write a bit of a different post to get you, but also myself excited for the new year!
There are so many things about to happen, it can be scary to think about all of them sometimes. However, I like to focus on the good and really think about how fun and exciting this year is about to become. Many people said 2015 was the best year of their lives: I am really glad it was. 
For me, I don't know. There were many good things, but also bad things that happened. I personally did not have a lot of drama in the previous year, but there were some really mean and terrible things happening in the world. They left me shocked and in fear. Before I get into the more 'fun' side of things I wanted to mention how much I hope that the terrible things that happened before won't happen ever again. 
My biggest wish is for people to be kind and think about others, and that is the thing I am looking forward to the most... 
On another note, there are many events about to happen to me personally and on a more global scale. I hope this post will excite you for this year too. 
The first thing I always get excited for is

Since I am a big sucker for the whole Christmas spirit, it sometimes makes me kind of sad and miserable when all of that is over. However, thinking about the weather getting a bit warmer and new 
trends starting to appear always makes me happy. Different scents, different colors, the leaves 
turn green and everything starts to be more alive.
The next thing I would like to mention are the

2016 OSCARS (and Oscar nominations)

This is something I look forward to every year! I love waiting for the nominations and watching all the movies that are nominated in order to be able to agree or disagree with the Oscar awards. It's also something that's fun to watch with a group of friends. The only problem I usually encounter is the problem with the timezone.. I can't really fully experience it because it's usually all night long. That doesn't stop me from watching at least parts of it :)


Since I have relatives in Florida, I usually plan one trip every year to visit. It's usually two weeks of relaxing, shopping and fun in the sun. I love going in the winter, that way I can get away from the bad weather at least for a little while.
I would like to go out of the country in the summer as well, maybe backpacking or something similar, but we'll see how that goes.
Also, I am probably going to do a few skiing trips this year. After not going for 6 entire years, I went last week and really enjoyed it. We had a lot of fun and met really nice people.. I plan to do at least two more plus one more thing I'm going to mention right away..


This speaks for itself. I love working with people and teaching them new things so this has been a long time coming. Since I used to ski professionally, this would seem as the logical step. I am so excited about this and am really looking forward to a new experience like this one!

I'm excited for seasons as you may tell. But I didn't want to miss the chance to mention summer as well. Of course, after that come autumn and winter which I also love, but I find it a bit to far away to think about that now.. So I'm going to stop at summer for now. The days get really long, it's nice and warm and it's beach time!


I met so many great people last year and hope to continue meeting them, going out and hanging out with them. Last year has really been fun, and I hope the fun continues even more this year. I want to have a bit less stress and a bit more fun!


I'm quite certain I will be doing even more reading than I did last year! Many new books and many more stories. This also goes for my studies. I enjoy reading the books that have to do with art history and archaeology (my masters).


...and being loved.


Oh the new trends are coming! This is one of the things I used to share on this blog quite a lot and I plan to take that up again. Look forward to some blogposts about spring and summer trends and..


..new trends here as well. Brighter colors and fun looks! Can't wait! 


This is my final thing: last but not least! I hope to blog more and am really excited for it! I hope to produce interesting material to read and write.

There it is! I hope this helped at least some people and that you are excited for this year as much as I am!
