2018 has been a real roller coaster of a year- not just for me here at Beauty Nomad, but for the whole world I feel. Emotionally, politically, environmentally, and through many other qualifiers it has just been crazy. I have a friend who is into cosmology she reckons it’s something to do with some planets and stars being in retrograde… I don’t know much about it but I agree!! It just feels like things have been off!
I have had some incredible highs and some incredible lows. I moved to Mumbai with the intention of staying 3 months… now 6 months later, I am proud to say I have managed to do a whole portfolio full of modelling work, done TV commercials, collaborated with local beauty brands and just completed work on my first movie!! It is beyond my wildest dreams to have accomplished all this in such a short period of time… but I also know I put in a lot of work to make this happen. This isn’t a humble brag, it’s just true: none of this would have happened if I didn’t take the chances and risks and put in the hard work I did to make it happen. What I’ve learned is- if you really want something badly, you just have to DO IT!
Now sitting here in December just a few days away from the end of the year, I have to say I am happy… to see this year pass!! I don’t have any regrets, and I am glad to have had all the experience I’ve had- the good, the bad and the ugly. But I’m ready for it to be done and take a nice long break Down Under in Australia in 2019 from where I will bring you lots more Beauty Nomad content!
