The Best Parties of 2011

As we bid "goodbye" to 2011 in the coming week, it's important to remember the monumental events of the year.  2011 was a fabulous year for me- full of personal growth and self discovery.  I am forever thankful for the friends who entered my life this year and influenced me in one way or another.   I rang in the New Year with Kim Kardashian at TAO in Las Vegas, got to know a few wonderful people who encouraged me to discover what it is I truly loved, and even visited Africa to see the little boy I sponsor through Campassion International!  It was such a special year.  Was it always easy?  Of course not.  That's life.  But regardless, I had a blast.  

If you know me, you know I can never turn down an invitation to a party- I'm a Sagittarius after all!  I attended some great parties this year!  Recently, Vogue recounted the best soirees of 2K11.

  3. It would be awesome just to be a fly on the wall at one of those parties!

    This year has been rather tough, but there's also been some fun times in between. That's life though.
