And just like that... 2020 is over 🎊✨ This year has been full of ups and downs physically, emotionally, & mentally. I could sit here and list them all out or I could tell you what I want to accomplish in 2021, but I’m not going to do all that. Instead I just want to say THANK YOU 💕 And I want YOU to THANK YOURSELF because baby girl... you survived ✨🥂 Take a moment to today to thank yourself for all that you did this year! YOU: ✨ Learned to love yourself more ✨ Worked towards accepting your body ✨ Grew during discomfort ✨ Did things you didn’t think you could do ✨ Broke social norms ✨ Stood up for what you believe in ✨ Went after your dreams ✨ Got stronger everyday ✨ Were the best version of yourself you could be at any given moment Now go pop that champagne & celebrate the new year because you earned it. 2020, thanks for all the lessons... but 2021, here we come!! ! 🍾✨🎉 #goodbye2020 #hello2021 #betterdaysahead // 📷 @karyaschanilec is under construction

Every year I leave our tree up until I get this overwhelming sense to take it down... 🎄✨ Today was that day 😳 I was determined to leave it up through the holidays but something just overcame me & I took it all down to start organizing for the new year... If I feel the need to clean I gotta roll with it right?! 🤷🏽‍♀️🤣 But just because the decor is down doesn’t mean I’m not in the spirit ✨🥂 Is your holiday decor still up or are you getting a head start on starting the year off fresh? ♥️ Dress is a velvet classic I’ll have in my closet from years to come from @shopreddress!

Smiled for the first time this week since I got to go into NYC for a photoshoot... there’s something about the city that makes me feel so alive ✨🗽🚕 Maybe it was because I felt refreshed from yesterday’s IGTV or maybe because it was only 30 degrees shooting spring content, we may never know ❄️🤣 Regardless I wanted to say thank you for all your love + support from yesterday’s video 🥰 If you’ve been here for awhile you know I’m outspoken & far from shy - but yesterday I had to dive deep to find the courage within myself before posting but I’m happy I did. I know I have new faces around here and I wanted to share a few more vulnerable things that some of my closest friends don’t even know about me! It’s so easy to see me living my life now and assume I “had it all good” but that’s far from true... so here goes: 🇯🇲 My dad is Jamaican and I’m my very Irish mom’s only child. I’m also the only American-born child of my father. I have lots of family in Jamaica & have visited over the years, but I live with guilt sometimes because most of them can’t visit the US. ☔️ I was born + raised in Seattle, WA & grew up in a very white neighborhood. I often was one of only 2-3 POC in my classes throughout middle + high school. 🏥 My dad passed when I was 9 from leukemia. Before he passed I got to live in Jamaica for 3 months with him while he treated with more non-western medicine but ultimately he had to have treatment in the US. 📚 I’m a first generation college student. While my parents are SO smart, my dad never graduated high school & my mom didn’t finish college. 💰 Growing up in an affluent area doesn’t mean I learned how to gain wealth. I am just now learning as an adult how to handle money responsibly and am just now recognizing the systemic issues that put POC at a disadvantage in regards to this. If you’re new here, welcome. If you’ve been here, thank you. If you left here, I hope you one day find your way back. Love you guys so very much ♥️ // Sweater is one of my faves this winter + is under $35 - linked on or

You already know I love a good @walmartfashion find! 😏 Let’s kick the new year off by styling affordable pieces because you don’t have to spend a fortune to look cute this winter ❄️☃️ Which @walmart find is your favorite? Shop all these looks + more on or 💕 //
