The start of a new year is quite special because it signals the time to finally get started on something you've been meaning to do. For me.. that is finally getting jumpstarting my dream career! It might be really scary for those of you who are thinking of making the transition of turning your passion into a full-time job. Trust me. I know. It’s like trying to attempt the impossible. About three years ago I wasn't sure where this whole “blogging” thing would take me, but needless to say I’m glad that I stuck it out because now I’m living what once was my dream. My case is just a little bit different. I am currently in my third semester of my program so I am still only working part-time. However, I left my retail job a few weeks ago. I am now part of a start-up company as a project manager and starting out as a freelance stylist. You could say I got lucky.

It's the start of press previews! With spring and summer slowly approaching, brands are now starting to tease us on what they will have in stores in the upcoming months. Express Spring 2016 Collection Preview last week was the first event I've attended this year. I never go alone to these kinds of media events so I asked my girl, Darlene of The New Girl, to join. It was a fun night plus we ate lots and lots of food. Especially those cheeseburger sliders! YUMMM.. Also, I got the chance to see some of my other friends.

Guess what? I haven't abandoned you all! The reason why I haven't been able to post anything for a while now is because my schedule has been crazy busy last week. After all that stress, I "surprisingly" caught a cold. It started as a simple itchy throat, which turned into an occasional cough, then turned into sneezing, and finally a runny nose. End game is.. I got really sick over the weekend. Yet here I am, updating you all with my nonsense. Anyway, I think now is the time to publish an outfit post since I've been depriving you of one. Ta-da ! .. I'll let you in on a little secret. I had gone to the thesaurus website twice because I couldn't find the right words. Although you won't know which words were those. Ugh, hate it when I think of something and it's at the tip of your tongue but can't, for the life of me, figure out what it is.
