My own custom made Mug

And the best boyfriend award goes to….  Seriously so happy and what a surprise! I never would have thought that Brandon would buy me a custom mug off of Etsy. I also love that there’s a backside so I can choose which side I want to display while I’m drinking my coffee! Anyway, if you guys think this is cute… I might have a surprise for all of my lovely followers coming up soon! But, these days have been quite busy and I have alot to tell you! I’ll leave that for another day though! 

Turning 23 + What I’ve Done + My plans

I’m finally 23 !  Is it just me , or does it seem that every year when we get older we get less and less presents + our birthdays don’t seem as big of a deal as it did in the past? Last year, I celebrated my birthday at a restaurant and my  22nd birthday was filled with presents, great food, and great company. This year, I had 20 of my closest friends huddled around my dining room table, wolfing down hotdogs, nachos, and drinks. I also ended up taking shots with everyone in the room! and of course, that didn’t end well. Anyway, I digress – I’ve changed so much within the past year and I’m so grateful for all of my experiences. For my birthday, I received a blogging mug from Brandon (with my logo on it! awesome), a background for my photos (that Brandon made it all by himself haha), and of course skincare products! I received small gifts here and there from friends, but honestly – I was so happy that everyone was able to …

Just got back from Europe! Good news + where I’ve been

Hi guys, I know it’s been such a long time! I just got back from France yesterday night, and just woke up and am ready to edit the videos + photos! I feel like I am lacking in many vietnam posts (but I would rather talk about Amsterdam + France).  Sorry for also being so gone and leaving this blog to fend on its own – I have been working on a new blog to help bloggers DIY their own marketing. So keep tuned for that, I’ll be hosting a giveaway when it launches. What I’ve been up to: 1. I got a new job! As a marketing assistant where I focus on Social Media. 2. Jane traveled to California, so I spent a week showing her around (and on my birthday week as well!) 3. Turned 23. Yay, I’ll most likely have a post up on that. 4. Traveled to France and Amsterdam. I will be posting up photos + a video on this (currently editing video now as we speak!) 5. Coming up with …

Tips for students seeking internships

Are you looking for an internship? My friends have this nickname for me, The queen of internships. Now, i don’t know if that has a negative connotation (because of course I have too many internships and not enough jobs under my belt!) but I don’t care. If you’re looking to start an internship, here are some things that you need to consider.  1. Make sure it will benefit you. In the future, you may want to take an internship to improve your portfolio or put into effect the things you’ve learned – leave that until after  you finish an internship. Companies are always offering internships, why? Because it’s free labor, they won’t lose anything, and they can afford to be picky. But, don’t just accept the first internship you get. You don’t want to be pouring people coffee or basically spend your day right next to the copier or scanner, now do you? So, choose one that will really benefit you and further your career. Make sure they have time to teach you how to use new software, design, write, etc.  2. …

Bloggers, Get OVER Yourself!

You’re just a Blogger.  Because you guys get all defensive, let me elaborate / explain myself . We already live in a world that is filled with material items, people who spend massive amounts of money to impress people they don’t like, and those who judge people who don’t have enough. When did blogging become part of that world?  I was recently invited to an event where there would be plenty of bloggers present. I thought nothing of it really, I’ve heard wonderful stories about meetups going great + everyone coming home with a new best blogger friend. So, I attended this event thinking nothing of it, only to be immediantly uncomfortable when I arrived. As soon as I arrived with a friend, someone asked, “You guys are bloggers? Which blog are you from?” Sorry, but is there supposed to be a specific way a blogger is supposed to look? Are we all supposed to maintain the same type of dress code, or blog about a certain thing?  Though my friend handled it very well, I was a …
