Best of 2012 In Review..Welcome New Year 2013!

2012 has finally come to a close..I have to say it was a pretty fantastic year. Over the year, I expanded from my original topic's at Gigi's Kitchen of food and recipes to some of my other favorite things and interests- baking, beauty, fashion etc. it's been really fun to share! I also purchased my first DSLR camera which really helps with and will continue to enhance my blog in many ways! I have met so many nice people, and bloggers like myself online and in person and have made so many new friends through my blogging which is what makes it so wonderful! I want to take a moment to thank those of you who have followed me/ connected with me with google friend connect, bloglovin, instagram, email, pinterest, twitter and facebook as well as those who take the time to write me such sweet comments. I absolutely love to hear from readers and it means the world to me!
A sad/hard moment in blogging this year was definitely the loss of over 2,000 photos in my previous blog posts that just disappeared somehow. It was so difficult because of how many hours I had spent photographing, compiling and uploading. I am pleased to say that although I have not recovered nearly half as much as I had posted, I have continued on with working on my future posts (backing up all my photos as I go along) and I have done my best to go back and fix whatever was possible to.
Before I close off a great year, I have created a round up of sorts including some of my favorite posts and some of the posts that have been most popular. Which was your favorite?

Food & Recipes:
Makeup & Beauty:
Fashion Post: Modest Look Inspirations for Fall & Winter  




And finally don't forget to check the post previous to this one if you want to see what my favorite beauty products were for 2012.
Thanks for reading my blog this past year I love writing it and I am of course super excited for what 2013 will bring! Let me know what your favorite post was or what kind of topics you would like me to blog about!
 Have a very Happy New Year!
