I always knew looking back on my tears would bring me laughter, but I never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry-cat stevens

A year ago i posted my first blog post about shoes! then time flies too fast and NOW I'm in Milan, chasing my wildest dream. Should i write my blog in Italian too? lol. I never thought that i could have so many readers because i made my blog for fun. It's my virtual wonderland, i could post anything that i want, made friends with many pretty people from another wonderland like sonia ,olin , ario ,michelle k , carol , claire ,fhenny , michelle h , arnold , bertie , lalita , diiyn, and MANY more (i miss you all so much!!!) , attended many cool events, and last but not least freebies(haha) but NEVER ever make a blog just because of the "popularity" factor, nowadays many people make a blog with some wrong intentions. Do it because you love it, whether you're a food blogger, fashion blogger, style hunter, etc. Blogging is about sharing and expressing what you feel, see, and think. Fashion is your language if you're a fashion blogger,it's your passion! don't give all the ah-mazing people in this virtual wonderland that put some efforts to express what they really love bad names(amen!). I consider myself as a newbie in this mad world, I'm not an expert and I'm still "learning", some people tried to bring me down with those silly anon comments, + some heartless people just copy paste their 9 lines of self promotion essay in my comment box.If you really love what you do, there's no need to send hate mails, promo essays, etc. I'll love you anyway, everybody have they're own uniqueness right? nuff said.
Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you-Oprah
I really want to give at least one thing for my readers but i (rewwwlay) don't know how to send em to indonesia. who wants a special giveaway? if my babies want then I'll make sure that I'll give you something sweeet from milan(no not laduree macaroons).
Last but not least thank you so much for all of the supports and comments through this amazing year. Thank you for all of the sponsors and also for the invitations( so sad i have to say no for all of the upcoming fashion events just because i currently live in Milan, but i'll be home for 2 months next year yeaay) btw please check out my new sponsor "Dignity" because they really make their clothes with a good purpose and quality!! You can see my review about em here or just click their logo in my sidebar (yes Hippie Gone Mad is open for sponsorship & ads NOW) . ciao!
