I’ll be honest, this summer was one of the best times of my life. I haven’t felt so free, so happy, and so grateful to be alive in years. I am so glad I started to work less; I’d rather have a mind full of memories over a pocket full of cash any day. It was hard to make that decision- but I can’t even explain how much I really needed that time to myself. I spent my summer running around- constantly moving from one place to another, and I loved it! I’m the kind of person that LOVES to stay busy. Unfortunately with that being said I did seem to neglect my blog a bit- many apologies to you lovelies who stop by time to time! But tis the season- my very favorite fashion season of all- so I am back with an intention to stay on top of it! I feel very refreshed this fall, and look forward to being very organized and informative!
Firstly I have to apologize. I have not posted in quite a while, I’ve had some significant changes occur in my life recently and had to sort out some ideas. I have also recently been working on updating the site, but that’s still in the works. So as many of you know, I have worked for Free People for just about two years now. I was promoted to the Full Time Assistant Store Manager this summer, which was more than an honor to me. I have become so immersed in this business and this company, and wish to continue on this career path. However, I may have forgotten about the fact that I was also a 20 year old full time student. Needless to say, it became entirely too difficult to balance a job that requires such intense commitment and also trying to not only pass 5 classes but take as much information from them as possible. So I had to make a decision, and I chose to take time off of work. I have to say, this was certainly one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make. I had received the job I had dreamt about, it felt so surreal, and I had to give it up.
Ah, there really is nothing better than Sundays. The week is done, and a brand new week is on its way! This Sunday I did not feel like stepping foot outside, instead I decided to take a nice hot shower, drink some tea, use some of my favorite new products, and stay extra cozy.
Sundays are the best days to create goals for yourself, to start new and fresh! Love yourself and love your space! I always find myself doing some extra cleaning on sundays because it brings me into the new week feeling fresh. I also like to do a face mask on Sundays, my sister recently bought me this gem.
It makes my skin feel incredibly smooth and smells great!! Another recent obsession of mine is the Volcano Soap from Anthroplogie- I recently bought the soap and needed to buy the room spray as well. The smell of this product is UNREAL!! Definitely check it out. Today’s outfit was simple and cozy, and I feel ready to face the new week!
