Long time no see me? Yes, indeed I have been away far too long. Of course there is a very valid reason. LIFE! Back in the summer of 2013 I was just starting back to school and looking for work. Once I started working at Urban Outfitters, it became increasingly difficult to maintain my blog along with school and other life issues that were first priority. The Holidays were exciting and oh so eventful! I got to meet Dan's wonderful extended family and enjoy some time with my dad on Christmas Day. After the holidays I had some decision making to do.
Now, in the new year I am finally attending school FULL TIME! Its been a while. I have been a part time student for about 2 years and for this last stretch I've decided to tackle my remaining classes to graduate on time. So, I parted ways with Urban ( :'''''''( oh how I miss my discount!) and started studying hard. Today, campuses were closed due to inclement weather but it was so cold I did not even both taking any pictures. Any woo, I am alive and well and I have not disappeared! I'm still kicking! If you would like to continue keeping up with me follow along on Instagram. It is the easiest and most convenient way to stay social without taking too much time away from my studies. Maybe once, I get situated with my course loads (and it warms up) I will do my very best to share some new outfits with you ladies!
In other news my wardrobe has changed quite a bit! From last year until now I have been on a journey of getting into the best shape of my life! I do not strive to "be skinny" but to be healthy and fabulous. My usual time allotted for this blog has been replaced with hitting the gym 4-5 days a week. I have been going regularly since September and have made serious gains since starting my strength training one month ago. I just might be able to finally lose the tiny amount of "extra love" around my tummy. :D
If you have read this entirely too long update post I say KUDOS to you and THANK YOU!
Since I've been out of the loop. What's happening in your neck of the woods?!
P.S. Here are a few photos from my life since December.

Hello readers! I have been busy working on Sociology review for my final (which was yesterday), Illustrator assignments and painting in class and at home. I also started working at Urban Outfitters which has taken up my extra time for blogging. Unfortunately, google is not friendly to my works. I'll figure that out at some point. Anyways! Here are my works. I have these all printed 11X14 in my portfolio.
Here is what else I've been up to in the last few weeks I have been away!

Hello Darlings! Happy Tuesday to you! Thanksgiving is only a week and one day away. How did it get here so quickly?! I have no idea. Anyway, Dan and I went out to grab a few photos at sunset before dinner. It was really breezy out. I am enjoying the cooler days. I finally get to wear long sleeve dresses. This houndstooth number is from Wholesale Dress. I was surprised that it actually fit. I was so worried it would be a let down but it fantastic. And it looks pretty chic. I do believe it will be my last purchase from them though. School life has been a bit busy. I have exams tomorrow and I am so frightened. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I always get super nervous before the exam. I mean who doesn't? What projects/ deadlines are you working on these days? Do share and don't be shy! ;)

Hello there. Not too much to say today except. BE BOLD! No matter how chilly the weather, I am always up for being bold. I know the season change but I love mint, neon pink and bright colors in the fall. I scored this lovely high-low sleeveless dress at Plato's Closet for ten bucks! I wasn't sure at first how I would work this thing. Once I got it home though I knew it would work out. Sometimes when out thrifting or just shopping, making one bold choice for a focal piece can make the outfit. If you aren't comfortable doing it up like this, choose a statement piece like an intricate necklace, bright colored scarf, or a patterned heel. What ever suits you. It was freezing outside when these were taken. The temperature was dropping by the minute. By the time we left I was shivering into my coat.
Enough about me, what is your bold statement go to when you are feeling fearless?
