This dress from Anthropologie right now, is my dream dress. I just wish you weren’t $150 dollars. Breaking my heart.
Anonymous asked: what was one of your first beauty products you ever had as a tween?
I actually remember this specifically - it was the Bonne Bell Smackers Flip Gloss in Rocket Pop (the blue one)! I thought I was so cool because I didn’t have to take a cap off of my lip balm and I could apply it while ice skating all casual like. I loved it so much I must have bought 4 or 5 of them while in middle school. Now that I think about it… I wish they were still around. Must be why I love a good lippy to this day! xx

kmnml asked: what's the #1 item on your fashion wishlist right now? Home wishlist?
I feel like I always want to say the Mulberry Alexa Bag (since that has been my dream for years now) but to mix it up…. Right now the #1 item on my fashion wishlist is a pair of cut out boots. I like this pair from Topshop and this pair by Jeffrey Campbell. (But I also wouldn’t say no to this sweatshirt from Wildfox.)
For the home I recently stumbled upon a post about an Electrolux Fireplace - which is an opaque ceramic cylinder that turns translucent and then transparent as the flames flare. Once off and it cools down it goes back to being opaque. My room is always freezing so it would be such a cool heat source to have.
I need to (want to?) be distracted but every time I ask ya’ll to send me questions/messages I don’t get any. That’s probably because begging is desperate and sad. But I would love for any and all messages and I love you hon.
Anonymous asked: How did you get a job after college? Any tips?
Honestly, I completely lucked out. My ex-boyfriend basically got me the job. His co-worker told him about the practice I work for now and that they were looking for an admin assistant - her sister’s husband owned it. I had about 4 years of admin experience as I worked while I was taking classes.
However, I would say don’t be ashamed/embarrassed/afraid to work in something not related to your degree for a while. I majored in History/Art History and knew right from the start I wasn’t going to find my dream job straight out of college but I also knew I NEEDED a job because I had student loans wanting their money back. Fortunately with the job I have now it allowed me the ability to volunteer at a local museum giving me experience/networking that I didn’t get a chance to have during college (working 35 hour weeks + 6 classes didn’t really allow me the luxury of interning). Plus one of my favorite Art History professors (who is now one of THE go to people in the art world) told me about she never turned down any job no matter how menial it seemed. Give it your all, you never know where it may lead you.
Working outside my ‘field’ has also allowed me to develop new skills and has given me time to think about what I really want to do with my future. I’ve been thinking about going back to college and getting a master’s in library sciences, potentially traveling somewhere else to work, etc.
Be persistent, apply apply apply - even if you think you’re not qualified the worse that can happen is they don’t call. Tailor your resume to highlight what the employer is looking for - I rarely send out the same resume twice. If you don’t get the job take it in strides and don’t get hung up on it. Keep in touch with the people you encountered in college or in the work world, they can always help you out in the future.
Again don’t get to tied up in the idea that you HAVE to land your dream job/a job in your field right away. It’s tough out there. xx
