I’m ready for you 2014!

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE LOVES!It is quite insane how fast time flies. It feels even quite stressful and scary sometimes I must say… but also extremely fascinating isn’t it? Looking back at all the experiences and goals achieved in 2013, I can’t be anything but happy and proud yet also so motivated and excited for all the things to come. My family and I have always celebrated New Year in family, by setting up a giant feast (essentially with traditional Russian food!) and always watched Russian TV on the 31st as all the special New Year’s Eve stories and movies were on air. We would exchange gifts and just enjoy the evening while thinking about all the crazy things that the next year awaits for us. Then when I grew up, I started celebrating with my friends which was also so much fun. In each case we would say goodbye to all the goods and bad of the year spent and welcome with arms wide open everything that’s to come.
I thought a long time about what I wanted to say in this post. First of all because it seemed quite right to do a recap of all the things that happened (I also didn’t want to bother you with my list of resolutions which is mainly about going more to the fitness club and eating less sweets…what can I say, I genuinely love macarons…).I wanted to talk about the achievements, the challenges, the adventures and the incredible memories gathered throughout these 12 months, but Kayture’s 3rd year anniversary is coming up very soon (on the 11th of January) and I’ll keep preciously all my stories until then.
Instead of that, this is what I want to tell you : 2014 is going to be the year of the new beginnings. If 2013 was essentially all about developing Kayture, our goal next year is to concentrate on all the new ideas that we gathered. Not only is the new Kayture going to be released soon, we are also working on some extra projects that will be revealed step by step. If you follow Kayture since the beginning then you might know that I’ve had one dream since I am 4 years old. And that is to sing and be an entertainer. As a blogger, I feel like I already apply to the entertainment field as James and I produce content with the will of inspiring people, making them dream and have a little 5 minutes escapes in their routine to jump into another world through images and texts shared.
My family always remembered me as I a little performer, I was singing, dancing and acting throughout my whole childhood and took all the possible classes in that field that existed in my region. I danced ballet more than 6 years, took some musical comedy lessons, I was in an acting school for 2 years and then started singing lessons and got into a band during high school years. Throughout most of my teenage years, I wrote songs and killed the ears of my neighbors by singing my heart out at home every afternoon after school when my parents were still at work. Then I decided to pause on everything to put all my heart and energy into Kayture. Thanks to the blog we’ve learned so much about the industry and met so many incredible people : we’ve gained experience, grew up and now that our business, life and general work is more stable I feel like it’s time, more than ever, to get back into singing. And when I mean get back : I mean do it at a 100% with all my soul, devotion and motivation. I had this dream since I was 10 apples high. And I think I’ll regret it all my life if I let it go.
So our first big project announcement for next year is this folks, and you can stay updated for news in the following days /weeks (especially on Instagram) : I’ll be kicking off 2014 with this singing goal in mind and can’t wait to take you all on this new journey as I am sure there will be a lot of challenges as well as incredible moments! The sky is the limit. To me, life isn’t about reading one book, or wearing one single perfume, eating only one type of food or trying only one sport : life is about being daring and adventurous. Living and doing what you love, listening to what your heart tells you and follow your guts and instincts to achieve those things. I know for sure that there’s a reason why I had to stop music and work exclusively on Kayture, if I didn’t invest all of my time in it, it probably wouldn’t have been where it is today. I feel like now is the time to start something new, something big. And my little pincky tells me that it can work. I want to be able to look back at my life and think that I’ve always tried, that I always fought and that I was smart yet passionate enough to find the right way to do it. No regrets.

Lovely post!... Happy New Year!!
Such a beautiful words at the end Kristina! From your instagram 'hints' I thought you were writing a book but I was wrong hahah:) If singing is your dream then you should definately go for it, and I'm sure you will succeed 100%. I just hope that you will keep providing us with great outfits and make-up posts because your blog really was my absolute favourite for that in 2013 (I even made a post about you in my 'best of' blog, it would mean so much if you would come and read it!) I think your strong points that distinguish you from other bloggers are that you have impeccable styled and edited pictures AND that you always write something that makes sense instead of just links to your clothes, and I think that's what I like the most about Kayture (also that you live in Switzerland, my favourite country haha). Big kisses and you really can look back on an unforgetful 2013, and I'm sure 2014 will be even more awesome for you!http://www.blogger.com/profile/16447871864047006497
ps sorry for the long comment!
You look adorable
i love youur blog and your sense of style

You look beautiful! (:
What nice words you have dedicated to us. They inspire courage and dreams while you read them. I don't know how long I've been following your blog, but maybe it's been about 2 years, and after all this time I can say that I love the passion you put on everything you do. From your posts to your projects. You and James have always done all things with a lot of love and all the perfection possible, and all of this can be seen in Kayture, for sure. So I just wanted to say also thank you to you both, because all these little details that other people do not valuate, actually make the difference. So congratulations because you are doing it right. I wish you make your dreams come true in this 2014, which I am sure you will. I can't wait to hear you singing!
Beautiful post K! You are really an impressive brave girl! You inspire me the most!http://www.blogger.com/profile/17176913062517313677
you really found the right words to express yourself, truly beautiful!http://www.thefashionplaybook.de/blog

Happy new year! The photos are gorgeous!
Amazing post and you are beautiful as always. :) Happy New Year Kristina!http://www.blogger.com/profile/00883694291310560128
I find really inspiring and admiring that you have the strength to follow your dreams and do what necessary for achieving them. I wish I could do the same... Hahahaha Maybe 2014 for me is the year of not giving up in my goals or dreams.
By the way I want you to know (hope you read this) that on my English final exam at school they made us write about one person which we admired and I chose to describe you. ;) I wished that at that young age I had such a cool blog which it is followed by tons of people.
Thank you for amazing words! You inspire to dream big! Happy New Year!http://www.blogger.com/profile/00383630340824318690

I really understand what you're saying because i'm in the exact same position. Singing and writing songs is my dream and i will do anything i can to pursue it. But when you have an artistic dream, you cannot be sure you will succeed so you also have to play on other sides.
Je te souhaite beaucoup de succès en tous les cas, j'ai hâte d'entendre ça et je laisse ici le lien pour mon premier clip sorti hier, la chanson est une composition personnelle :)
Belle journée !
