A Look Back at 2016

Miami fashion blogger Stephanie Pernas of A Sparkle Factor takes a look back at her favorite posts of 2016

Happy New Year! You may have noticed I went a little quiet the last week of 2016, both on the blog and on social media. The holidays are my absolute favorite time of year and I really wanted to disconnect and enjoy them. I hope that you got a chance to do so as well! Spending time with family, relaxing, not worrying about work… that’s the best, isn’t it?

I wanted to take some time out to thank YOU! The holidays were crazy this year, I didn’t even mention or celebrate my 3-year blogiversary on November 26th! I had all these great plans of doing a special post, but then it was THANKSGIVING WEEKEND right between Black Friday and Cyber Monday and I was just so frazzled with the holiday rush… I let it pass without acknowledging it. Every blogiversary, I like to take time out to thank you, my awesome reader-friends. You visit every day, leave wonderful and sweet comments, engage with my on social media, support my efforts, encourage me daily and I am so, so thankful to have you in my life.

I am so, so excited about the new year! A clean slate, fresh start. I have so many plans and exciting things I want to do… I can’t wait to flesh out my plans and share them with you.

Tomorrow, I’m sharing a special post about goal setting and WHY it’s so important. But I think that before you goal set and make plans for where to go next, you should re-visit where you’ve BEEN and reflect on your journey with an attitude of gratitude. I think it’s really important to take time often to intentionally reflect on yourself, your journey and your goals. The new year is a natural time to sort of pause and take stock of the past year. Specifically expressing gratitude for the peaks and even the valleys of the year before go a long way in helping to reset your attitude for the new year. I love to look back and see how much has changed and how far I’ve come! So much can change in a year! Let’s take a little trip back through the year…
