They say better late than never. So here is everything I loved in 2012.From music to fashion,some are new found loves and others are rekindled love. Lets start with the  fashion .
My favorite fashion trends in 2012:
 Leather I've always been a fan of leather.The last few years have seen leather becoming a big hit. But in 2012 (andIm sure we'll see this year also) , leather took on new meaning as it becomes ladylike, luxurious and seductive, not rough and tough.
A leather jacket has always been a great investment piece and this year is no different. Leather jeans ,pants or leggings were also big during fall/winter 2012. They are a great dressy alternative for night time ,paired with nice heels. So wearing leather this year is not about that biker look it's more sophisticated and even pratical.

Peplum. Again ,another very feminine trend. As tricky as this trend can be, I'm sure there is a peplum style for every body type. I think peplum is fun.You know,jolly. But I didn't go crazy for it, so just one black peplum bustier top was enough for me. And I don't think this trend will carry through 2013.

Camouflage No longer for soldiers, this trend was a big comeback last fall. I like to keep my camo very simple, so I wasn't into the "chemises" , camo knit dresses or skirts. I like the jeans and parkas  only. Ah and camo snapbacks are very cool.

Layered bracelets I love this trend because you can easily make it your own. Just 4 things you have to pay attention to.Color,texture, size and style....

yes I wore 2 watches..:)

Now on the music,,,I used to listen to Hip-Hop back in the days until the era of Wacka Flocka( I think that's how you spell it) came around  and I closed that door for a little while. But recently I was listenning to fabolous new mixtape; SOULTRAIN (story telling at its best). I fell in love with Fab all over again.
I'm also loving Asap Rocky right now. Throughout the year, I listened alot to Timothy Bloom, Tank, Usher (of course). Usher keeps getting better and better . Monica. Maxwell. Florence and the Machine. Emili Sandé. Frank Ocean. Veronica Bozeman. Chrisette Michelle. Ledisi. Marsha Ambrosius. Tyrese. Santigold. Nas. And  Kate Nash.
I`m loving 2013 so far .I can`t wait to discover what it has in store. Thanks for reading and remember  staying positive will take you far in life...Bisous
