I’m Still Here…

Firstly, I want to apologize for my absence because it has been quite sometime (over a month) since I’ve posted and even then it was only a youtube video. I had been caught up on my university school work and the usual social aspect of university. It is now finals week and there is only a few days left of my Junior year in here the motherland. Because next semester, I will be going abroad for the second time around, this time I plan to take on Europe!! Currently, I’m at a very exciting yet stressful phase of my life, but I am trying to absorb every moment of time (bad and good, ups and downs).

I got to thinking about my future today after turning in my Finance exam. I asked myself .. “Is this what you want to do?” … “Be a Finance major?” … The answer to that question is NO! Non!! NEVERRR!! I want to do something that I love, something that I am passionate about, something that is natural to me. That is why instead of taking a very much needed nap, I logged on and started typing on here. From now on, I plan on having weekly updates and start having more “phootshoot-y” type posts to spread a little inspiration around (because in reality this is my inspiration and my creative board). Let’s go!

Peace and Love! xx


Plans For This Week

Ello there! My schedule will finally be freeing up this upcoming week. By Monday, I would have submitted my study abroad application for Vienna and checked off my second Marketing exam. I have a few plans in store for this week:

1) To buy some art supplies for sketching and design

2) First photo shoot with my my friend Steigen, so that I can post it on here for you guys

3) Search for internships for Summer ’13

4) Live life to its fullest

Peace and love always

Carolina Football Gameday Attire. GO COCKS!!

This morning I got up and did not have that many options in terms of outfits because it was Gameday here at USC (University of South Carolina). My color options today were either black, garnet/red or white; so, I went with all black for today’s game. I decided to wear a black skirt from Zara, basic black tank from Uniqlo, black crochet vest from a street vendor in Brasil and tan ankle booties from Unionbay. The high for today was a nearly scorching 90 degrees, and it almost felt like it was pushing the 100s because there were so many people and very little wind. But of course you can’t complain about the heat when you surround yourself with your friends and a good time.

Today we played against Missouri and beat them 31-10 and it was an entertaining game to watch/learn. I am not a big football fan because I was raised to be more of a soccer/basketball type of girl. BUT, I do have to admit that football is starting to grow on me. With Sarah’s help I could really fall in love with the game of football. I realized how football is such a huge part of the “Southern” culture. And growing up in the South, I feel like it is only right that inherit some of that football culture (even though I do not consider myself one bit of a southern gal). It was overall a delightful day and cannot wait for the next game against Georgia. I am proud to be a GAMECOCK!

My beautiful friend Sarah and me. Looking classy in all black for the game.

Me, Sarah and Becca.

Brothers for life. Matt, Me and Sarah.
