2012 in retrospect

Happy New Year everyone!!!

So it's been one hell of a year. Generally a great one, with some ups and downs but I feel like I grew up more in this year than I have in any other year in the past, especially while reading through last year's round up. I really enjoyed 2012. I met some incredible people and had some really fun nights/experiences that really has made this year stand out. I feel like I've done more with HiFashion and with my life in general and I'm grateful to all the people I've met and have to put up with my constant flow of non stop talking!

But here are some highlights!

Starred in my own music video (kind of).

Got to hang behind the scenes at an amazing and inspirational Rigby & Peller photoshoot

Went Ice Skating (my favourite hobby) more than once (also see here).


Had some lovely pampering and spa trips, including massages and facials.

Discovered my home city of London a lot more than usual, when I walked around Kingly Court and Portobello Road Market, and talked about my favourite place in the city.

Had a great holiday to Dubai (where I went to the top of the Burj Khalifa) and Qatar.



Saw the gorgeous Matthew Williamson AW12 collection first hand.

Got something different done to my hair thanks to ghd.

Feel in love...with a watch (and also with my dads new Porsche).


Saw the Hermes Leather Exhibition.

Started a proper job and had to get my work wardrobe organised.

Had an eye opening experience in the countryside.


Had a blogger hangout with one of my inspirations and role models - Fearne Cotton.

Saw some stunning SS13 collections at LFW, including Tahir Sultan and Jena Theo. I also had my favourite celebrity spot - Jake Humphrey front row at Zoe Jordan.

Had really fun photoshoots with Toni & Guy and Dorothy Perkins.


Took a trip to Birmingham for Style Birmingham.

Went to a cabaret for Forever Crazy.

Learnt a lot about Diamonds.

Took another, much needed, trip to Dubai, and managed to catch the Formula 1.




One of my oldest/best friends got married, and it was a traditional 3-day Pakistani extravaganza. You can see my outfits herehere and here.

Designed my own pair of Skullcandy headphones.

Had an amazing night out with MeeMee Dot Com.


Got to play in the snow.

Had an amazing winter night out with Rekorderlig.

Had fun with one of my favourite brands, TOMS, at their pop up store and GIVE store.


So all in all an amazing year. There were a few downs, which all came at once in the same few months, but I got past them and came out in one piece. Here's hoping 2013 will be as fun and epic as this year. I love all the opportunities this blog has given me and am excited for the new year.

I wish all of you the most incredible 2013! Hope this year is brilliant for you and that you get all the happiness you deserve.

What have been the highlights of your year?

Sherin, I enjoyed that countryside trip very much. Also, why on earth would you willingly share that video with people!? Also, you missed our debut on stage at the Scala - now THAT was a morning to remember!
