Best of 2013!

I know it's cliche, but it really does feel like the older I get, the faster the years pass;  I swear I was just 21...I'm starting to feel like I'll blink and be 40 (and according to my mom, I will--that's pretty much how life works). 2013 brought a ton of highs, from exploring Italy by myself to making international headlines with my swimsuit collection. Honestly, the fatkini stuff changed my life--it was a really seminal moment for both me and the plus size community, and it brought a whole slew of new opportunities--so for that reason alone I think 2013 will always remain one of the best years ever. Don't get me wrong, I've had (more than) my fair share of lows this year too, but for now I'm choosing to be grateful and remember that I'm literally living out things I only dreamed of when I started this blog. To celebrate the end of the year, let's look back at my favorite outfits/moments of the past 365 days (you can click on the number to go to that post).

(Just in case you're not a regular reader of this blog, I feel like I need a disclaimer here saying this was Halloween and I would never actually wear this outfit...or pose like this!) photo halloweenkimkardashian_zps96cf8b83.jpg FIVE  photo girlsedit_zpsd1c6a48a.jpg FOUR  photo gabifresh-asos-dress_zpsc2ad96cb.jpg THREE  photo gabifresh_fashionweek2_zpsb7c00954.jpg TWO  photo Marina_Rinaldi_Gabi_0093_resize_zpsf2526636.jpg ONE photo gabifreshgalaxybikini_zps4960daeb.jpg
Here's to making even better memories in 2014! I'm so excited to move to LA and take things to the next level.

Happy New Year & thank you all so much for your continued support!

  3. These were some of my favourites too. I think the ASOS flared dress was what first got me onto your blog. Your Halloween KK outfit was absolute genius!

  9. WOW! You never seize to amaze us! I can only imagine what ‘s to come! I never knew of "plus size blogging" or even a "positive plus size community", until I saw you in a magazine about 4 years ago! When I was younger, I wanted to be in fashion but had no idea how to obtain my dream, until I found your blog! You're my biggest inspiration in the plus size community! I dream of following in your footsteps!

    I'll be moving to LA in the next year or 2! I may or may not, hope and pray that I might possibly run into you one day! I’m a little embarrassed to say, but I have seriously imagined being “real-life” friends with you! I know it sounds a little crazy! I’m not a weirdo, I promise, maybe just a little! Haha! On the real though, I would love to meet you one day and maybe even start a friendship! Until then, god bless you, girl! You are doing the damn thang!!
