Nearly everything on her vision board has made its way into her life. Click here for close up pictures and details.
Here's what she said:
1) Goal: Entrepreneurship
Accomplished: In 2011, I finally applied and got myself a real business license. On top of that, I placed runner-up in a local business plan competition, which gave me the confidence I needed to know that when I do officially start my business, I’ll have support
2) Goal: Meet DVF
Accomplished: In 2011, I met Diane von Furstenberg three times! I was blessed to win a FREE wrap dress at her Fashion’s Night Out party (see here). I was privileged to attend her Spring 2012 show at NY Fashion Week (see more here). And I was also selected to participate in her NYC Wrap Rally to launch her Diane fragrance, which garnered major press (see pic below, I’m on the right!)
3) Goal: Become a Contributor
Accomplished: 2011 was huge for me in regards to contributions. That was the first year I was featured in major national publications! I had an advertorial in Essence Magazine’s October Issue:
On top of that, I was quoted as a blogger/expert in Ebony Magazine’s Beauty Awards, LoveBrownSugar was declared one of Essence’s Top 40 Fashion Blogs, I landed my first article on The Huffington Post and I secured contributor status in a plethora of other publications, which I’m truly proud of.
4) Goal: Travel
Accomplished: In 2011 I visited Ecuador for 10 days (see HERE), and in early December I spent a luxurious weekend on St Thomas and St John. Two unexpected places, but two amazing experiences I’ll never forget. And both trips were sponsored, so I was able to do them without suffering financial strain.
5) Goal: Develop a healthy lifestyle
Accomplished: During the summer of 2011 I participated in a 6-week program called NY Lean (see here). On that program I lost 12 lbs in a 6-week period and I felt absolutely amazing. It showed me that these health goals weren’t as hard as they seem. I also eat much more organic food, and I barely eat fast food. Of course, there’s more work to be done, but I did manage to accomplish a few goals and for that I’m proud.
6) Goal: Stay natural & grow!
Accomplished: I grew my hair from teeny weeny afro to almost collar-bone length over the year. I couldn’t wait to put my hair in a high bun!
