1 year. many things.

The day has come. Happy 1 year blogiversary to me! It's so weird to think back a year ago from today when I started my little blog as "Girl About Towns" (may she rest in peace). Today, as "a blonde affair" I feel so lucky to have accomplished as many things as I have in one short year! Being the H&M Fashion Blogger, moving to Victoria, then back to Toronto, covering New York Fashion Week, covering Toronto Fashion Week and now writing for Corduroy Magazine.

I not only started my blog a year ago today (check out my very first post here), but I also moved to Victoria. Now here I am, back full circle and back in the city where it all began! I definitely miss Victoria and will especially miss it this summer, but I'm also excited to be here in Toronto with exciting new projects on the go. You'll have to wait a little longer to find out what's in store!

I thought for such a long time what I wanted to do for my special 1 year post. A montage to 525 600 minutes was definitely up there on the list. But now that I've probably got that song stuck in all of your heads anyway, I decided to post "a year in photos" of some of my favorite moments and memories over this past year. I hope you enjoy! (cue: 525 600 minutes...)
