I stood in my fourth wedding.

However, this has to be one of my all time favorite weddings because I was a groomsmaid!  I was so flipping excited, I had no idea how to contain myself!

So here are some pictures from my Instagram that talks about how much fun I had.  I surely did not want to come back home at all.  I loved every minute of it.  It was seriously the time of my life – I definitely needed it.

Plan Ahead With Style

November 30, 2014

I am a planner; wait, I am more than a planner – I am a planner addict. I am definitely a Spencer-type (from Pretty Little Liars) who plans (well, tries anyway) their lives. It’s pretty much the only way that I can live my life – I don’t remember not having a planner. That’s sad!

Well, last year, I did a video regarding planning and using a planner. I am thinking about doing another one at the top of 2015 with more things to consider when purchasing a planner. I watched a couple of planner videos and many of the YouTubers have purchased high-end planners, like Erin Condren, Day Designer (one of my faves), or a Filofax. Many of them were organized very similarly. I thought to myself that you don’t need an expensive planner to make it look awesome!

I can be so preppy it’s ridiculous.  I don’t know if that is even a possibility.  I doubt it.  LOL :)

I am not wearing this today per say, but it’s black so I thought it needed a shout out today!  I love this outfit for a variety of reasons, but the one being is that I thought about this one all by myself!

Shake It Off

November 18, 2014

I am the person who despises change at times, especially when it does not go with my big plan for world domination.  Ugh, I hate it!  However, sometimes you have to go with the flow and the times.

That is how I feel about Taylor Swift.  I feel that sometimes you have to be flexible and go with the flow.  You may not be able to like the changes, especially how Taylor feels about Spotify and streaming music.  Sometimes you to just go with it or mix it so that you can maximize your potential benefit and growth.

If you haven’t seen her newest single, Blank Space, check it out below.  It’s great and I am not a TS fan like that!

My niece is my mini-me.  It’s funny how people assume that she is my child as opposed to my sister’s.  Look at this kid!  She’s hilarious and full of life, not to mention she has some amazing style!
My favorite store to buy clothes for her is J. Crew.  It’s an obsession and a problem, but I am dealing with it – rather poorly I might add!  She is full of personality and I feel that her outfits have to reflect that.  I mean, it’s only law.

Scrapbook Your Job | #ScholarSunday

When I was younger, I used to document EVERYTHING.   As an aspiring journalist, I needed to make sure that I could chronicled ANYTHING!  Family vacations, freshmen year, you name it, I documented it.  It was that passion for documenting my life that started me to blog and vlog.  But I definitely carried my passion over to to my internships and full time professional opportunities.  You have to remember your highs and lows – you never know when remembering you got coffee for the CEO may be helpful in an interview!

Before I get into the many different ways you can do this, many of you are probably asking why?  Why should I write down or take note of all the little things that I have done in my job.  Well here’s a couple of reasons:

  • Helps with Resumes: The job description is definitely helpful when writing your resume, but when you look back through your internship scrapbook, you can add individualized tasks that you did.  It will give your resume a more personal touch!
  • Helps with Interviews: As you prep for interviews, a lot of the questions interviewers may give you could be found in your internship scrapbook as well.  You want to make sure that you personalize your experience and stand out!
  • Helps with Performance Reviews: While having the internship, this definitely helps in taking note of all the things you have done.  Whether it’s a good performance appraisal or a bad one, you want to make sure that you have all the evidence of your work.  I can’t tell how many times I reminded my supervisor of my awesomeness.

Bring Modani for the Holidays

November 14, 2014

I dress a room like I dress myself; I identify key and timeless staples and add fun accessories to make it my own.  This is probably why I enjoy picking clothes out for myself and changing the look of my apartment.

 

 

Sofa

The sofa is your little black dress for any area – with the exception of the bedroom :).  If I was being realistic with myself, I would choose this black sectional sofa.  It goes with everything and can withstand the accidents that I may do.

But if I want to make a statement and pack a punch, I am opting for this Monaco sofa in white!  It reminds me of a crisp white Oxford shirt: classic and timeless.  No matter what accessories I toss on there,  I can reset and have a great base to try something new! Continue Reading…
