French Madame 2012: A Look Back!

Bonjour francophiles & fashionistas!

As 2013 rapidly approaches, I find it always fun to look back at the year.

2012 has been a very significant year for me in many ways.
I moved out and am now supporting myself. Decorating my own space.
Getting more and more involved in neuropsychology. Attending a
psychology congress in Denmark. Revisiting Denmark. Two weeks at the
côte d'Azur with my family. Spending time with friends.

As far as this blog goes, let's take a look at my most popular posts!

♥ The MOST popular post, that generates around 2,000 views each week thanks
to Pinterest, was a tag-game. I answered 11 questions about my favorite things
and featured myself in a red Jane Norman dress, that someone pinned and was
re-pinned over 500+ times.

My favorite red dress by Jane Norman.

Jeez! I liked the dress as well but it was interesting to see it
pop up on so many 'style' boards on Pinterest :D!

4. Maisons du Monde
5. Facebook Timeline Covers

♥ As for my own personal favorite posts, I always love blogging from vacation.
I spend a lot of time in Denmark this year, which I fell in love with.

♥ And then of course there was the paradise-vacation in Provence.

♥ A special peek into my closet. Looks mighty fabulous, if I do say so myself!

♥ I started doing 'What I Wear' posts, which were a lot of work to shoot
but beautiful to see the end result.

♥ I did a lot of 'quote'-posts this year. My favorite quote is this one by Oprah Winfrey.

And now a bit of an anouncement:

If you're following this blog regularly, you've noticed within the last month the quantity of posts went down a bit. That's because, beside school & work, I bake a lot, have a social life, blog for Paris Pastry, update two Facebook pages for my blogs, I tweet, I pin on Pinterest and now I post pictures on Instagram.

In 2013, I'm taking French Madame more on the social media platform (Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram). I find it very hard and difficult to find time to write quality post for French Madame at the moment, but I couldn't possibly stop blogging for French all together.

There are so many lovely images I share on Pinterest, click here to view.
I post all of my vacation pics on Flickr, click here to view.
I'll keep on updating Facebook weekly, click here to view.
And I take pictures of everyday life on Instagram, username DanielleTdd.

I want to make Paris Pastry my priority blog. Don't fret that you'll never see another post on here... I'll definitely keep on blogging, but just a bit less. Hope you're not too dissappointed. I just marked my third year aniversary for French Madame, so it's been a good ride! I love re-reading old posts and I'm very proud of this blog.

Always yours,

I've missed so much on your blog this year! (I haven't been as active on blogging as I'd like to be) I don't see how you could have time to do all the things you do! You're an inspiration! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and I'm going to make sure I follow you on all of your other venues now if I'm not already:)
Happy New Year!
