By Anupriya DG - December 28, 2013

Yes...we have all started our countdowns to the NYE.....haven't we? :)

The superstitious ones can heave a sigh of relief - 20'13' is about to end! (Is it just me, or does anybody else feel that this year had an eerily large number of Friday-the-13ths?)
The party animals can be happy - here's one more reason to celebrate!
Most of us have sat down more than once to make that much-needed list of New Year resolutions. And almost all of those who have, still have an empty or incomplete list. :P

This year has been quite a good one for me.
Of course, it has had its ups & downs.
But overall, there are a lot of things I owe to 2013:

  • Meeting quite a few new people (really or virtually), who have gone on to become great friends. They are so much a part of my life now, that it seems quite unbelievable that it's not even been an year since I know them!!
  • Taking Howrah Bridge to new heights - showcasing at new exhibitions, stocking at new stores, getting numerous international orders & even getting featured in electronic & print media....this year has surely been good to my brand!
  • Travelling. A LOT. This surely has been an year close to my traveloholic heart! From enjoying the fashion week in Mumbai to a family holiday in Gujarat to having a blast at BFF's wedding at Agra - I have been all over the country this year!
  • Getting this blog a lot of attention. I have collaborated with quite a few brands/websites this year for reviews & giveaways, thus giving my blog it's share of mileage. But if everything works out fine, then 2014 is going to be bigger & better as far as Chappals vs Stilletoes is concerned. :D
  • Last, but not the least, bonding - with friends, with family, with the guy - this year has seen me grow closer to my loved ones and spend many special moments with them. Hope 2014 knows about the expectations it has to live up to! ;)
Oh! And did I say that 2013 gave me my new phone.........and along with it, INSTAGRAM??? [Blackberry, unfortunately, didn't support this app and so, I was deprived of this lovely thing till I got my new Samsung Galaxy Grand!]

Yes, I got introduced to Instagram halfway through the year....and it has been an incessant love affair ever since! <3
So, when I sat down to write this year-end post, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite Instagram-ed moments with you would be a fitting goodbye to 2013!

Season's greetings,
