Struggles & Triumphs

photo(68)I’m so upset that my blog is getting put on the back burner but working full-time really does take most of the time off your hands.  I can’t believe that I am pretty much half way done with my internship at ICONIX Brand Group.  I’ve fallen into the groove of things and it saddens me to think that all the amazing people and things I have been doing will have to come to an end.

Badgley Mischka Fall 2014

photo(66)Every fashionista dreams of heading to the Big Apple in September or February when FashionWeek is in full swing.  But Fashion Week isn’t just a show of style, it’s a crucial time for buyers of big companies like Bloomingdale’s and Bergdorf Goodman to get a peek of the new collection so they could get it into stores when it is actually Fall 2014.  It’s a business transaction in sorts but it has since become more than that.  Backstage, I saw how everything and everyone.  It was really amazing to be standing only inches away from Mark Badgley and James Mischka.  I was surprised how organized it was and how calm it all was. There was no screaming or running around, no one was panicking. It was very calm except for the hordes of accepted press squished into the tent, trying to get shots of the designers and a few celebrities that were hanging out.

Be My Valentine

valentines*Sponsored Post. Every month for a year I will be receiving Darby Smart kits to try and review. The reviews and opinions are all mine and are no way affected by being sponsored.

Returning from my too-short vacation in the sunny state of Florida, I arrived to find my Darby Smart already ripped open by my curious father.  I took a peek and immediately grew excited.  Inside was a can that said ‘Sprinkles’.  Now, if you don’t know Sprinkles, it’s a rather semi-famous bakery that started in California and soon spread it’s wings into New York City.  I’ve been wanting to go for as long as I could remember but could never make time with my busy school schedule and multitude of internships.

American Girl

americangirlLast Sunday, I had the opportunity to volunteer for Hackensack University Medical Center to raise money and benefit their children’s hospital.  It was a day I wouldn’t trade for the world. I managed to rise up early 6am to get ready.  I threw on a Radiohead t-shirt, my Ed Sheeran varsity jacket, blue jeans and Steve Madden boots.  The hospital is only a short 15 minutes away and we had to arrive by 7:30am.

My friend, Leah, had signed me up prior to even asking me because I had been telling her how much I’ve been wanting to volunteer.  We were given the position of backstage-Model Dressers.  This fashion showcases girls ages 6-12 and they had multiple costume changes.  Being a fashion major, I’ve always wanted to witness the hectic nature of being backstage at a show.  This was no big fashion week show but it was still a lot of pressure as they needed to head off to hair and makeup after we dressed them.

The Ed Team

 

EdheaderYesterday was my 3rd Ed Sheeran concert in NYC.  I feel in love with Ed three years ago thanks to Tumblr and my obsession with Harry Pottter.  Everyone had been reblogging this video that I have never heard or seen before with Rupert Grint in it.  His vocals grabbed my attention right away but I must admit I wasn’t keen with the slowness of the song.  It grew on me and I researched all things Ed.  Here I am today.  Another thing that grabbed me was his fiery hair, anyone who knows me knows I have a thing for gingers and while he isn’t the most gorgeous, I just find myself swooning.  Last night’s show was no different.

We Wear Pink in October

breasecancerawarenessmonthCancer is a word no one wants to hear.  We can effectively compare such a word to Voldemort.  It shall not be named for it is feared and hated.  October is the month that we throw on our pink shirts and scarves..not only on Wednesdays.  I am proud to say that my aunt is a breast cancer survivor and she is one of the strongest people I know.  I had the opportunity to accompany her a yearly Cancer Survivor Day that takes place in Jersey City.  It really is inspirational to be surrounded by people that you know have gone through some terrible hardships in their life.

Straight Hair, Don’t Care

evelyn-putnam-designs-2-1277501-regularAs humans, I find we are never really happy with what we have.  If you have straight hair, you want curly hair.  If you have straight hair, you want curly hair.  If you are flat-chested, you want more and vice versa.  Why are we always striving to change ourselves?  Why are we never content?  I stopped and thought of this while I was sitting on the hard folding chair as my mother was half through the painstaking, 8-hour process of taming my frizzy and curly hair.
