i am recruiting again for a full-time job after i graduate but the industry usually does as-needed, just-in-time hiring so totally expecting not to have an offer until way later. which is making it hard for me to decide whether i should actually study abroad next semester.
i really would like to go but the job situation and fomo are making it difficult.
and speaking of sample sales, there are a bunch coming up that i want to go to. and i’m too lazy to post about them, so find out on your own.
this looks so incredibly fun. my favorite thing to do when jet skiing is speeding over wakes created from boats and flying off and falling into the water and this seems like it’d be pretty similar. i do feel a little old since this specific clip seems to be targeting the spring breaking, “jackass”-watching college kid crowd but whatever, i want to play!
of course it looks kinda dangerous too, but that kinda adds to the fun factor i guess.
i was supposed to be writing 8 essays over this long weekend. it’s the end of the 3rd day and i have written 0 essays. #fail
i was resistant to the color blocking trend at first, but i recently embraced it whole-heartedly after i saw a dress i really liked at max mara a couple weeks ago.
i tend to be very picky about looks i want to achieve and color blocking is no different for me. i’ve been trying to cash in on this and replicate the vibrancy of the dress, which paired orange and blue but haven’t been completely happy with anything i’ve seen or even purchased. there are certainly other colors but i’m really digging the orange-blue and red-blue combos.
and speaking of gucci, with their jewel-toned collections…you can bet they have some amazing looks:
so what colors look good together to achieve this look? look to the color wheel and at the concepts of complementary, analogous, and triadic colors.
and why write a long post on what that means when there are tons of articles already out there and when i can post these great videos from wendy’s lookbook (she’s so cute)?
have any of you watched disney’s take on rapunzel, tangled? there’s a beautiful scene/tradition of these floating candle-lit lanterns. my colleague was telling me about how this actually happens somewhere, which made me really excited because it sounds amazing. i was surprised that it was real though since it sounds like a fire hazard but i’ll let the officials be responsible for that…i want to play!
tangled must’ve been inspired by the midsummer’s eve kupala day celebrations that take place in poznań, poland. i’ve actually been making a to-do list of activities/goals after i finish applying and get accepted to business school and some of my top goals include travel. i especially want to see europe as i’ve never been there before, and this will probably be the only time i have so much spare time to spend a month or two traversing that continent (even if i have no money, i don’t care). i definitely want to incorporate this into my europe trip. the photos below were stolen from urban aviatrix.
doesn’t this look amazing? who else wants to go with me? save up!
last year i went crazy and bought 2 chanel purses, 2 pairs of christian louboutin heels, 1 pair of chanel pumps, and a pair of alexander mcqueen heels at around the same time–it’s no wonder i’m broke. but i want…
