Why I Was Gone For So Long But Now I’m Back

Hello readers!!! I hope all of you had fantastic holidays and happy New Year to you all. I know that it has been since November since my last post. However, I was missing for a great reason. As some of you may know, I was finishing up my degree in December. That being said, I was an extremely busy gal. In fact, I literally went two months without a day off. I kid you not. It was insane! My life consisted of school, internship, and work. My stress level was at an all time high and I didn’t think I would make it out alive. Fortunately, I did. And because I went through all of that stress, I am stronger for it. I now have my degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising!

I learned a lot from my internship and got to work with a very talented jewelry designer/maker! It was exciting. At school I was responsible for writing numerous speeches for my last term. Let me just say that writing and delivering speeches is not my forte. However, I came out of there a better speaker. Thank you Mr. Wilds.

While I regret not blogging through December, I succeeded in finishing several goals. I would like to announce that I am back to my blog and I can’t wait to post more about what I’ve been up to. I am currently on a plane back to Nashville from Las Vegas! Yes, I needed a vacation reward. Stay tuned for photos from my trip and more!

Thank you all for reading!

Internship

Hello everyone! As some of you know, I have started my college internship. I am in my last term of fashion school and cannot wait to graduate in December! As a part of my last term, my school requires their students to have at least one hundred and twenty hours of an internship related to the student’s related field study. It took me a while to find my internship. I was very picky. I didn’t want to intern for a huge corporation but I wanted a credible internship. After searching for a few months, I found the perfect internship opportunity.

Let me just tell you; it’s all about networking. I met a business owner at work (where I sell makeup and skincare all day). My co-worker was helping her and noticed her adorable necklace. When she asked who made it the woman informed her that she did. She is a local jewelry designer/maker. My co-worker knows I love everything fashion and cute and we all began talking about her business. We exchanged contact information.

A few weeks later it hit me. Why not intern for this awesome company?! So I got in touch with her and after a few meetings, we decided I would intern for her. Anyway, I am so incredibly excited to be an intern for Christina Kober Designs! If you would like to check out her work visit her website! christinakoberdesigns.com or find her on Etsy! Her jewelry is so unique and simplistic. I’m in love with her jewelry!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week!
