Leaving my 9-5 Job to Pursue My Passions

Leaving my 9-5 Job to Pursue My Passions
Hello Loves!

Today’s post is all about pursuing my passions head on. I have never been afraid to make the first move, especially when it came to creating a path that I hope one day will lead to my ultimate career goal. My love for content creation started during my study abroad trip. After two years of trial and error, and working a job I had no passion for; I decided to take a leap of faith by quitting my 9-5 job.

My love for content creation continues to grow from the brainstorming process to capturing the perfect photo. I have found amazing success not only with the fun projects I had the privilege to be a part of, but also developing a sense of self-love and confidence I never knew I had for myself.

I felt the urge to take a risk towards a career I have always yearned for. At first I made sure it was a career I wanted, which is why I tested the waters for 2 years as a hobby on the side. When I started to receive offers for paid sponsorships and brand trips; I realized how content creation was more than just a pretty photo, but more about the story and conversation behind a photo.

Being honest with my parents was hard. I was afraid to start from scratch when my entire college years were prepare for the HR world. Even though I am a go-getter, I am still afraid of failure and the unknown. It wasn’t until I took a trip to New York for my 25th birthday that I realized how much I disliked my HR job. Don’t get me wrong, my team was amazing, and the work load was do-able. At the end of the day, I felt creatively limited.

My entire life, I prepared myself for a life that wasn’t my own. This lead to a mental breakdown. I have never felt such a sadness in what I was doing. I finally had the strength to open up to my mom, which was the best decision for my mental health. The honest conversation lead to a back-up plan and opening up to my dad. Through it all, my parents supported my decision to quit my job and pursue a digital and social media career.

Even though I’m financially unstable at the moment; I have this overwhelming good-feeling that something amazing will come out of it. The most important thing I learned from this experience is to always be honest with yourself and the people who love you most. If I was honest from the beginning, I really believe I would have not pursued a career I dreaded.

What Fashion Means to Me

What Fashion Means to Me

When I hear the phrase, “what fashion means to me” I immediately go to my happy place. Growing up, fashion was my big sister, best friend who helped build my self-confidence and self-expression when I felt so different from the people around me. She accepted my indecisive choices from sequin tops to lace dresses and approved my wide array of color picks. Through it all, fashion allowed me to be my unapologetic self.

My LOVE for fashion all started when I was 5 years old. My mom planned a mini photoshoot in the back porch because she bought matching denim outfits for my sister and I. As the unique, creative individual I am, I quickly found a solution to make my outfit more me. I grabbed a navy blue knitted cardigan and styled my first outfit. I wore half the cardigan on and the other half hanging off the shoulder for a slouchy look. For a 5 year old, this style decision made me feel more empowered and creatively happy. That kick-started my fashion journey and here I am today pursuing a fashion-focused career!

When it comes to fashion, I love the ever-changing trends and style throwbacks. Everything from the luxury accessories to seasonal dedicated pieces. Fashion is a great example of how people continue to change and there are no set ways to do everything. I truly believe that fashion continues to play a key role in all successes of life. When I feel good about what I’m wearing, it’s crazy to see how it positively affects everything and everyone in my life.

Fashion to me means empowerment. The empowering feeling to be who I am, do what I love, and continue to positively inspire those around me. Comment down below what fashion means to you, I would love to know 🙂

5 Ways to Pamper Yourself!

5 Ways to Pamper Yourself!
Hello Loves!

This year is the year of self-care! What is self-care without a few pampering activities, right? I’m sharing 5 ways I pamper myself, which I love to do at least once a week 🙂

1.Netflix and Chill with Food! I’m such a homebody and foodie. I love to sit on my couch and have a movie marathon with my favorite foods. It is such a great time 🙂 Here is a list of my favorite fashion/chick flick movies to binge watch.

2. Face Mask and Wine Up! What is more relaxing than a soothing face mask and your favorite bottle of wine? Nothing I tell you! In a way it’s the perfect way to relax from the outside in.

3. Splurge on a Manicure! I love getting pamper at a salon, especially if it means leaving the salon with the cutest nails. This blog post is in collaboration with PLee Beauty, which is a beauty salon located in Wausau, WI. PLee Beauty does everything from manicures to eye lash extensions. She is such a pro and what I love about PLee Beauty is that not only is she crazy talented with her nail art, but also her customer service is so amazing. I met her for the first time a few weeks ago and after the appointment, I truly felt like we developed a mini friendship. I don’t know about you ladies, but I’m not all about just the service, but also who is providing me the service as well. If you are in the Wausau area, I highly recommend PLee Beauty for your next manicure appointment.

4. Write A ‘Life is Good’ List to remind yourself what is good in your life. This is such a great idea to compile all the good things in your life. I love all the positive vibes you get from the list.

5. SHOPPING! Retail therapy is so real and personally it has proven to be such a great way to release stress and splurge on yourself 🙂

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed this blog post!

4 Tips from a Smart Shopper

4 Tips from a Smart Shopper
Hello Loves!

I will admit, I’m a shopaholic. I love to buy whatever is in my lane, especially if it’s pink, vintage, and glam. However, these past few years, I have developed a few tips and tricks on how to look fabulous without breaking the bank.

Thrift Stores – The good ol’ hand me down playground that is filled with lots and lots of hidden gems. I will admit that thrifting does take a good chunk of your time, so prepare to be very patient. 90% of the time you will end up with nothing. However, when you find that hidden gem, it’s all worth it, especially when its in great condition for less than $10! I have found some of my best fashion statement pieces at a thrift shop. My go to online thrift shop is thredUP and my go to in-store thrift shop is Goodwill.

Department Stores – The best place to buy brand name clothing and accessories for a discounted price. Gordmans, TJ Maxx, and Nordstorm Rack are my favorite shops to buy Nike and Fila comfy clothes as well as Nine West shoes. Their discounted prices are unbeatable! If you are all about the brand names, these department stores are for you!

Ebates – If you love to online shop religiously, definitely sign up for Ebates. This is the place to receive cash back for simply shopping for what you need and want. Disclaimer: not all online stores are on Ebates, but a good chunk are. I probably online shop 3-4 times every year and my Ebates checks end up being between $5 – $15, which has helped pay a few bills here and there.

Holiday Sales are the best sales! – If you are dying to buy something and a holiday sale is coming up, I say wait for that Holiday Sale discount. I have saved so much by just waiting a day or two. Usually these sales will be 20% – 50% an entire purchases or buy one and get one free.

The Waiting Game – I have played this game so many times and it has paid off in the end. For example, Storets has this gorgeous blouse that I’ve been wanting for weeks, however, I convinced myself that it wasn’t in my budget to buy it full price. So, your girl waited and I finally snatched it a few days ago for half price. Best shopping score ever! Trust me, sometimes waiting for the price to drop can really pay off.
