T.G.I.F.!

...Which of course everyone knows means Thank God I'm Fabulous!

I hope everyone has been having a great summer! For myself, I've been having a good, but very busy summer. In fact, I don't think I've even logged into Blogger more than twice since June, let alone ready anyone else's blogs! Not that things are settling down in my personal life and at work, I will be able to get back to making at least somewhat regular posts.

I'm certainly looking forward to the long weekend, and (finally!) some R&R!

August Update

Wow, I can't believe it's been a month since my last post! It's seems like the summer is always the time when I drop off from blogging for a bit, but that may be because I'm doing more outside of work and have less downtime. To be completely honest, though, it was very liberating and refreshing not to be on my blog for a month, or even read other people's blogs. Now don't get me wrong, I love y'all, I really do, but everyone need s a break, even from the things they enjoy.

I've been mostly busy with traveling out of town, and I've also started on that job search I mentioned a while back.

Part of my traveling included the first vacation I've been on in three years: Virgina Beach!

Sun Out, Guns Out


Hope everyone is enjoying all of this nice summer weather!! Sorry I haven't been around much, but I've been so busy lately. Hopefully, though, I will have some legit posts and updates soon.

Summer Work Wear Staples: Tank Tops and Tube Tops



After two years of working during urban summers (which are as hot or hotter  than summers in the South, no matter what people say!), I quickly learned how to tackle the heat with clothing that is comfy, yet can be dressed up to look professional. Two of my favorite things to wear to work when it starts to get warmer are tank tops and tube tops. "What!?! Do you work at Hooters!?!," you may ask. Of course, Hooters isn't the only place you can wear tank tops to work, but when done the right way, you can wear tank tops and even tube tops in just about any work environment. When worn over a tank top or tube top, a blazer or cardigan can make an outfit immediately office ready!

Letters From My Past Self


I recently dug up an old journal that got in college to help me sort out my thought during this transitional phase of my life while I'm on the go. I was flipping through the first few pages when I found the journal entries I had written when I got my first part-time job in 2011 (too bad I wasn't blogging then!). After the last entry was a whole page where I had written "Get a full time job by end of August" all down the page. It's funny because not only do I not remember writing this, but it totally came true. On August 31, 2012, I started my first full time job. And on the next page, I am going to write "Get a full time job in another state by end of September." Let's see what happens!

I don't know about you, but it feels sort of surreal to me when ever I read things that I've written long ago. I t feels like I'm reading some else's writing, but then I know every emotion and detail they are describing.I usually tear out the old pages of journals when I reuse them, but this time I decided to keep the previous entries in. See it as my way of reflecting on the past and using it to help motivate me for the future.
