2015 has been such an amazing year, one of my best really. I've had so many amazing experiences, and I met the most amazing people. Though new year's resolutions aren't really for me, there have been a few things I've been working on the past year that I'll keep up. So here are my highlights of 2015, and my plans for 2016!


The highlights of this amazing year.

Old habits, new year.

Less is More

The past year I've been trying to live more minimalistic. I can't believe how much stuff the average human being owns, how much I own without even knowing what I have most of the time. Lately I've been feeling like my stuff has been holding me down. So by buying only things I really need, and donating things I don't use to charity or selling them, I feel lighter.

Stop Wasting Time

Years of Netflix and Facebook is not really what I want to look back on by the end of my life. I used to have so many passions. But during a dark period in my life years ago I had quit everything. I'm trying to use my spare time for the things I love and to pick up things I used to love, to make more time to travel and see places, and to spend more time on friends and family.

The Power of Kindness

I love random smiling moments with strangers, and the look on people's face when you give them a sincere compliment. If we all keep spreading the love, this world would be such a beautiful place.

Compassion over Cruelty

As some may know I am highly allergic to injustice. Not every creature on this planet is being treated the way it deserves to be. And in the new year this will definitely stay one of my top priorities as a consumer.

My first plans for the new year.

- Trip to Warsaw
- Concert Three Days Grace and Halestorm
- Amsterdam Fashion Week
- Polette store opening
- New tattoo

Let me know what you guys have been up to, and your plans for 2016. I wish you all a happy new year!
