2016 Rewind

5:51 PM


I noticed a lot of youtubers doing this and thought I'll do something similar.

My blogging in 2016 was REALLY sporadic. I also didn't update as much I wanted to...because I was too caught up with...life. For some reason that sounds really weird typed out and as I read it in my head, because my life isn't really that eventful. One thing for sure is that 2016 - my blogging died. There were many reasons why I think my blog died but the main reason was because I could not manage my time as well as I did before; I felt like I was always playing catch up with my blog posts and I felt like what I wanted to post was not relevant anymore so I just don't post anything. I'm going to sound like a broken record but
I am determined that for 2017, I will be more consistent. 

That is my resolution for this new year.

Now let's see what I've done in 2016.
  • Tried new recipes and foods
I started to be obsessed with TastyMade videos and actually tried a couple of recipes. 
My favorite were the apple roses.
Chocolate cake with pink decorative frosting
FINALLY tried Hot Spot in NoVa
As well as Momofuku Milk Bar.
Kung Fu Tea was pretty huge this year. 
My favorites are peach oolong with nata jelly and winter melon with boba.
Starbucks Rainbow Drinks went pretty out of hand, but I still LOVE the pink drink (strawberry acai with coconut milk)
  • Visited more museums
Taubman Museum in Roanoke, VA

Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C
  • Physical Changes
Hair
I finally decided to do something different to my hair and I had an ash brown to blonde ombre during the beginning of the year
I actually got it pierced in 2015, but it finally healed and I was able to change to a ring.
Invisalign
