I don’t understand why people hate so much on selfies? First of all, I am no Kim K. of the selfies, and I never intend to be. Why was the camera phone invented anyway? It was for sexting with images and selfies. Not for food, not for babies, puppies or anything else. Just nudes for sexting and selfies. Please feel the sarcasm.
Currently on vacation. So of course being that it’s the first day of relaxation and stress free days I naturally feel the need to update my resume, my profiles with the company that I currently am employed by and apply for positions within said company. Not your ideal first day of vacation to-do list. Not MY ideal first day of vacation to-do list. So of course after this mini therapeutic session is complete I felt that making the ‘rounds on my favorite blogs/sites would be necessary…
Read R29? You see those illustration t-shirts? If you didn’t, I am sorry! I haven’t purchased a graphic t-shirt in a bazillion years, so when I saw the Refinery29 X Joana Avillez illustrator t-shirts I had to. I love Carine Rotifeld I find her to be absolutely intriguing, creative, innovative, stylish and perfect. I look up to Rotifeld.
Which t-shirt would you get?
Valentine’s Day, the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas is ok, Thanksgiving is cool, Halloween is awesome but Valentine’s Day is your favorite holiday’s favorite
holiday. I love the hearts, the gushing of emotions, the feeling of love in the air, Valentine’s Day manicures, chocolates, lingerie, champagne, romance. ALL DAT! However, I do believe in love gestures everyday than one day out of the year, consistency is key. To be honest I have never really been into Valentine’s Day too much, but there’s something a little different this year, something more special. I am in a relationship that sends my heart sailing into outer space. See, I told you that I love this sort of thing.
So with the feast of Saint Valentine two days away here’s a gift guide for all you last minute lovers:
Chocolates, a little something sweet for your sweetie. I prefer Fran’s.
Louboutin, walk your way right into my heart!
Sweet little trinkets from Locher’s Paris.
Sort of bummed. Not everyone is exactly where they want to be in terms of their career, I feel that we are always trying to grow and are always trying to take the next step. All about progress. Well this last week I found a job posting from an emailer from a 3rd party source that told me that my dream job is up for grabs. I spoke with my boss and she said speak with HR and see if I’m ready or what I need to do to take the next step to put me in a better position to where I need to be for said position. So I go to HR and the job had been filled. TALK ABOUT CRUSHED! Although, there’s always a positive side to a negative, the negative being the obvious that my dream job was snatched up from me before I had a chance to pull the trigger and actually apply. However, the positive side is that I get to perfect my craft, learn more about myself and work towards that.
Of course it wasn’t what I wanted to hear but at the same exact time I felt ok hearing it. After hearing that the position was filled it actually made me have a desire to really reach and go for what I want. Yeah, not hearing what you want to hear is a bummer but I am feeling really inspired at the moment. I feel that in times like this if you can’t draw inspiration from yourself or a situation then you’ve got nothing, the inspiration from me not getting what I want and myself has honestly put me into a whole different state. I actually feel good, weird? I’m not sure if this makes sense? This post also isn’t an edited post either, more like a diary post, a jotting down of thoughts.
As I was driving yesterday there’s one thing that I am for certain of myself is that I don’t give up and I don’t back down. I will get my dream job. I will.
Let me start off by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yes, I know I am 23 days late, but can I get a late pass? I want to make an effort to blog more and write stories, let my audience or lack thereof be let on in on my life a bit.
So you will see more of me here. What would you be interested in seeing? More outfit posts? Short stories? Shopping hauls? Food? Let me know, wait! I think I answered my own question. These are things I would like to incorporate into my blog for content. Well, here goes! <3

New York Fashion Week is upon us all! Which means, Fashion Night Out which also means a ton of exclusive limited edition releases from designers, boutiques and major retailers.
My #1 first favorite #FNO item would be the Opening Ceremony 10th Anniversary Varsity Jacket. This is so majorly magical! Since the varsity jacket came back a couple years ago for men I hopped on the trend and purchased versions in men’s sizes or purchased women’s varsity jackets.
Clap your hands, stamp your feet, OC’s the team that can’t be beat! Raise those poms poms and wiggle those spirit fingers ’cause the limited edition OC 10th anniversary varsity jacket is here! Available at our FNO event tonight, these super limited edition jackets for men and women commemorate our ten year anniversary. Akin with our love for all things American heritage, the jackets have five embroidered patches, black and white leather sleeves, and a cozy grey wool body. And the best thing is, you don’t have to date a football player or wear lycra to get one! So throw on your jacket, grab your yearbook, give yourself a wink your locker mirror, and finally get that cutie’s autograph!
I am still on the hunt for the perfect fit varsity jacket with leather sleeves. I want fitted, but enough room to have a thin leather hoodie underneath for layering. Ahhh the feeling of missing out on such a fabulous time of year! FASHION WEEK AND FASHION NIGHT OUT! If you’re there, this baby can be all yours for $300. Not a bad price for great quality and a limited edition piece.
First of all, I will always agree that it should be all black everything, but if you know me….you know that gold has my heart always and forever. If you’re just now getting into gold, I will go ahead and give you your late pass. Loser.
As many of you know, vinyl handbags are a huge thing for fall, don’t puke. I know. However if the metallic tones aren’t your thing Furla has some awesome options. I am not a fan of the material being that it isn’t as durable as leather, but look at the large majority Louis Vuitton materials used and prices given. My only issue with this beauty would, of course be the price.
At any rate, let me introduce you to the McQ Kingsland Shopper in all of it’s golden glory. Here’s the deets: Mirrored vinyl constructs this futuristic tote from McQ Alexander McQueen, accented with a razor blade charm and a snap-close luggage tag. Buttons detail the double handles. The lined interior houses a single pocket. I love that it’s mirrored, it sounds like a delight.
Thoughts. Would you rock this golden goddess?
I got mine, did you get yours? Here’s my mini Warhol Campbell’s Soup Cans display in my kitchen. This is at the end of our breakfast bar.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Andy Warhol’s iconic 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans (1962), Campbell’s set out to introduce a run of limited edited versions of the tomato soup cans reflecting Warhol’s signature pop-art style. Available while supplies last at select Target stores.
If you, for some unknown damn reason missed this last night, here you go. What an inspiring and impeccable speech Michelle Obama delivered last night. She opened with Stevie Wonder – ‘Signed Sealed Delivered’, glided across the state in a Tracy Reese frock, gave a historical and phenomenal speech that she wrote herself, and then closed with a Beyonce track. What a boss! Our first lady is a damn boss with a vision. She’s utterly amazing.
I don’t know about you, but I know where my vote is going come November 6th.
Friends, if you need to update your address, please update according to your state. Exercise your right to vote, make a difference.
