Negatives and Positives

Summer has come and gone. I have not been posting as much as I have always tried to. Despite that, I miss writing my thoughts out onto my blog. I spent much of the summer applying to jobs without much luck. I had resigned myself to just being a stay at home daughter. While I did not have a full-time job; I did have an online job but I wanted a real job like my friends. It is hard to get yourself out of a negative mindset when you are in the world of social media.

It did get difficult to see when I was going to get out of this dark place but I busied myself with the four F’s: family, food, fun, and friends. I went to the Drake concert, planned a Disney trip (which I will post about), and even thought about visiting family.

 

Life is funny though. When you least expect something, it tends to happen. Right when I threw in the towel and decided to not actively look and give myself a break…I got a job. A real, full-time job. It’s been exactly a month and while it is exhausting and it sucks to not have as much time to myself–I can finally save money, pay off loans, and then hopefully began to save to maybe move out in the future, pay off debts, and get a car.

This little post is here to say: do not compare yourself to others. Life is not a race. In your negatives, you will find a positive. Surround yourself with people who will lift you up and encourage you. You will need support. Sometimes you can’t go things yourself. Life is full of ups and downs, negatives and positives, and an adventure waiting to happen.

Time Away

Every time I say I will be posting more, life throws me another curve ball. A few huge milestones have passed. My blog became 5 years old, I graduated with my Master’s in Fashion Marketing, and I’ve thrown myself back into the job search.

How to Wear Skirts in Fall

I love skirts. Wearing one dresses you up instantly.  I struggle to style my skirts or dresses during the fall or winter months. I tend to push them to the side since it begins to get cold.  Jeans are usually my go-to, year round. That changed when I saw this cute wrap skirt at American Eagle Outfitters.  It is no doubt for fall. So, how do you wear a skirt in the fall?

Fall Weather? Not Today

Wearing all black is usually the look that many love and adore but while fall is “here”..it really wasn’t.  The weather in Jersey/New York is still humid and hot which makes wearing all black a bit difficult.  Fall weather..sweater weather..where are you?

Minnie Vacation: Disney

Sometimes all you need is a good weekend away from home and the hustle and bustle. That is what I did. Between internship, final semester of grad school, home life, and my online work, I needed a break to disconnect and enjoy. My girls and I enjoyed our time in March so we vowed to do it again for Halloween. What better way to get away than a Minnie Vacation at Disney (haha get it? Mini…ok..)

How to Revive Old Denim with Embroidery

DIY: Easy Embroidery

Crafitiness is not in my blood.  Sewing is always something I’ve had an interest in but never the confidence to pursue it. I might try it for real one day but for now, hand-sewing and embroidery is where I am going to start.  Embroidered jeans are so in and for a while, I have been obsessing over them, but it can be expensive. The solution? I took a pair of denim that I had lying around and began to personalize it a bit to my taste. Read More →
