I woke up excited for the last day of 2014. I am ready to say goodbye to this year and I did my best to Shock myself! It has been a great year, one of growth and surprises. Back in Soho mean lots of time to do fun things and less time on the train. Reconnected with a ton of friends and got used to loft living.
This year started off with a bang! We went down to Chinatown to celebrate the year of the horse. I continue to work with the handbag company in HK as a freelancer. We moved to our loft and I am so happy! Being in Noho is awesome and made me fall in love with New York again.
This month was awesome! 1st year wedding anniversary and fun events all month long! Even though Feb is always a short month, I manage to pack in plenty of events!
All I did in March was have fun! I finally finished my contract with the bag company and all I wanted a a break! I went to the Aglit Italy pop up shop and read a lot of book. I start doing a few part time jobs and I seriously think about what I want to do and who I am. What a crazy! Just 3 months til 30 yrs old. eeek!
I finally am done with the bag company and I feel free! I am ready for my next adventure and the best way to start of my spring was with a talk from Apple about #girlboss. The owner and founder of Nasty Girl spoke with confidence, humor and hope to all wannabe girl bosses in the audience and created a whirlwind of ideas and inspiration. I am so renewed, refreshed and ready!
I met Aimee Song another #Girlboss for sure! It was fun and inspiring to meet the one and only Song of Style. We talked about trends, Youtube and this whole style blogger phenomenon and then things we loved and hated about the industry. This was a good month for learning and letting my brain be truly creative. It was at the end of this month that I first created my doggy glycerin soap Come Clean!
Birthday! For my 30th birthday, all I wanted was a baked Alaska. This month was all about events, automotive, beauty and fashion… After a bunch of wasted time with long interviews with different PR companies, I decide to take matters into my own hands and officially launched Come Clean! We had some much fun at the NJ Woofstock which gave me a ton of confidence to go forward with my own ideas.
Summer was wedding season! Headed to Toronto for the wedding of the year for Shannae and Sean’s wedding at the Collingwood Ski Resort. We also took the time to go to Wonderland before the wedding and enjoyed summer in TO! Come Clean starts gaining momentum is in 3 stores yay! Toronto this month (Groomery and K9 Couture) and New York (DoggyStyle).
I was invited to partake in a beauty workshop with Sturm und Drang for a new shampoo product – this time in NYC. It was at the Soho Soleil. My university roommate came for a visit and I also went on my first New York cruise. I saw Lady Liberty close up and enjoyed a weird cruise lunch and warm champagne too. I went to NJ to visit friends who had a new baby name Emily Grace! What a cutie.
Fashion Week with Cynthia Rowley! I organized a great blogger event for this designer and had the chance to meet 8 top notch fashion designers. It was fun and intense month working with this New York Designer. Their show was at the Swiss Institute in Soho and it went off without a hitch! I also went to see the Mara Hoffman show too. This month I also certified for Level 1 Reiki and met up with some FIDM Alumnis at AquaGrill for some awesome seafood too! I also started working with the Asian Dating company East Meet East as their social media content creator. I also send 100 pcs of Come Clean to TIFF to be in the Style Gift Lounge.
We got to watch Indy for a few days! Jacob definitely loves being an only child. For Halloween, Jacob dressed up as Christian Grey from 50 Shades. Come Clean gets into 3 more stores and featured in various blog and even Lucky Magazine!
Celebrated Thanksgiving with Tai going to Germany to work with Strum und Drang to work on another beauty and trends project. I start working at the Samsung Studio part time and make 20 new friends… And I also went to go to Calgary to visit my sis and her family! My nephews are soooo adorable and Lake Louise and Banff is picturesque and stunning in person. Even in the cold winter!
I am working on Come Clean a lot and I am in Singapore, Canada, US! Isn’t that awesome! With a huge Christmas rush and tons of love, I conclude the year with 10 stores that carry us and over 500 transactions. With 2 more stores, Caesar’s Palace in Vegas and Orlando’s University City Walk… 2015 is going to be an amazing year I am so proud of myself and I really shocked myself. I look forward to January and pushing Come Clean full steam ahead!!
