☾ 2019, Im happily saying goodbye They tell you that you shouldn’t look back but I’m going to suggest that you do. Be brave, look back and reflect on your past year; Or the past decade! It’s OK to remind yourself of what you went through and what you overcame. We may not be able to control what happens to us but we can control how we react to it. We must remember that all things are powerless unless we give them power. So let that power be empathy, understanding, kindness, grace, love and respect. Remember that God has and always will have your back. Have faith that life will get better as long as we believe in ourselves. We must internally feel grateful for everything and strive to become better people daily. Remind yourself how incredible your life is. How you’re still standing, thriving, smiling. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that what we take with us, is so much greater than what we left behind. I am choosing to only take with me the happiest of times! As I made this video of the past year; I can’t help but smile! True you are my entire heart! My happy place! My Forever and always! I love you ♡ I pray you leave everything that does not serve you purpose, happiness, peace, love and health back in 2019. 2020 I welcome you with all of my heart!! Des’ree- I’m kissing you

What a year! I’m so grateful to the community that has supported me this past decade. In 2000, I dreamed big and in 2019 I dared to dream even bigger. I launched @VictoriaBeckhamBeauty, with my co-founder and good friend @sarah.creal, as well as partnerships with @Reebok and @Sothebys. I’m so happy to be home again and showing on the #LFW schedule. And like the @spicegirls we went on tour! From Berlin to New York, Dubai to LA, Doha to San Francisco, I met some inspirational leaders like Sir #JonyIve and @SherylSandberg. And so many of you all high-kicked the #VBPose—even @theellenshow joined the gang (see more on #worldofVB!) 2019 will also be known as the #cooltobekind year and I continue my work as a @UNAidsglobal ambassador and led charity initiatives at #Pride and #IWD. There were also hours #InTheChair and singing @barbrastreisand @davidbeckham and I have come a long way—we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and every day my family makes me the proudest mum—I love u so much @brooklynbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham #HarperSeven. Thank you all again and #TeamVB for continuing to support me on this journey. x I wish everyone a happy 2020! xx Kisses VB

As VB states on her post, "in 2000 I dreamed big and in 2019 I dared to dream bigger", and oh, she did. Her VB Beauty launch was a a success, as were her fabulous fashion collections. We cannot wait to see what this entrepreneurial mom has in-store for us in the new deacde!


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Meghan and Harry weren't the only royals to share their year in review, but William and Kate did too, and their recap video includes footage from their historic Pakistan, Oman and Kuwait visits!

I’m not one usually to write novels on IG (mainly bc I’m a bad writer and was forced to be in ESL for most of middle school) but I will take this moment to acknowledge the incredible blessings I’ve been given in the last decade. What started out to be a farfetched dream, became a reality and I couldn’t have done it without all partnership and support from those who believed in me. When I first started, all I wanted was to see ppl be able to wear the things I designed. A decade later, I have realized that my mission and passion is far beyond that. The opportunity to create meaningful work and show what an immigrant American story can look like in 2020 has been an absolute privilege. Making beautiful things and helping ppl look and feel their best, is not only a dream come true, but being able to bring ppl together while doing so, has become the most rewarding aspect. So I want to say thank you again, to all my fans/customers/colleagues/mentors/friends/family and even critics, for joining me on this journey and making me a braver, more daring individual to pursue my wildest dreams and share this story with all of you. PS. THIS collage took a lot of patience and WiFi to gather, so excuse the sloppy cropping, but I promise to get better
