Hi everyone, thanks for visiting my site! Staying on top of the latest fashion news through a blog has always been a dream of mine. I've tried many times to enter the world of blogging -- and it's a tough one, but despite its challenges I'm ready to give it another go. I focus on Fashion, beauty, health, wellness, art, women's issues, and just telling people's stories.
In 2013, I had a pretty stable and comfortable job as the assistant manager at one of those popular, mall retailers for teens. I got this job just shortly after receiving my Associate's degree from the Art Institute of Cincinnati in Fashion Merchandising and Management, and I was excited to embark on my career in retail. Long story short, exactly 365 days of working as a retail manager, I put in my two-week notice, and told our store manager, "I quit". I wasn't happy there, at all. Yes, I love fashion, I love clothes, I loved styling mannequins and coming up with new floor plans, but that is not where my passion lied.
Fashion is one of those industries where it can go in so many different directions. There's fashion design, retail, fashion marketing, fashion PR...the list goes on. When I quit my job, I knew that I wanted to create a name for myself and pursue being a blogger, stylist and eventually, the fashion editor of a New York Magazine (which I'm still working on that one). I began my journey at the University of Cincinnati pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Magazine Journalism, with a minor in Fashion Design Studies, and I'm almost done!
I must say -- this all has been a very bumpy and scary road, but quitting my job and working towards what I really wanted was the best decision I ever made.
Enjoy the site!
