Commuting, working, pursuing, surviving

DSC_0108Okay so I may have had a little breakdown in my car this afternoon, but here we are–I am relaxing and writing a post, so I’m thriving (kinda).

Honestly, I think I deserve a breakdown, though. I am a college grad working three jobs just to stay afloat, follow my passion and make that moulaaaaa. You’d have a mental breakdown too (:

Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change my life for the world, but sometimes I need a GOOD cry. I was leaving my second job, on my way to my third, realized I was about to run out of gas and wouldn’t have time to get any for the next two days because of my schedule. Hello, breakdown!

Get my fall eyes look!

Heyyyyy there everyone! Happy rainy Thursday to you all, I hope it’s treating you well.

I have this afternoon off, so I thought I’d pop on to write a post all about my fall makeup look and what I’ve been doing every day with my eyes! Tomorrow looks like it’s going to be the first chilly day (and stay that way) so what a better time than now?

Let’s get started.

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying this FALL weekend that we are having, I know I am!

I had a really exciting day yesterday, and I would like to share the details of it with you.

I was nicely invited to cover this year’s Styleweek Northeast as press, so of course I had to go to not only show my support of these amazing local, New England designers, but also to take note and share my experience along with the designs I saw!

Let’s get right into it, shall we?

My Favorite Transitional Mules

Happy Wednesday everyone!

How’s everyone’s week? Mine has been FAB! I just started a new position in New York City so I’m very excited and eager to be there. It’s been a lot of fun so far and I’m learning a lot. I was thinking of starting a segment on here called Commuting Diaries since I currently 2.5 hours per day, each way to get to work! What better way to pass the time on the train than to blog? I thought so, nothing! I’m thinking of recapping interesting parts of my day, stories about commuting (I am sure I’ll have many) and just anything on my mind as I am on the train. It might be a lifestyle, motivational, uplifting but comical part of my blog. Plus, it’ll help me pass the time and that is needed.

Bedroom decor: see my faves from MY room!

IMG_0220.JPG

So lately I’ve been obsessed with bloggers showing their readers their apartments and I wanted to do something like that myself!

While I currently live at home, since I just graduated college, I still have my own space and I really love it!

Throughout college my room went through a transformation—it seemed like every time I came home on break, something about my room was different! One time, if you can believe it, my parents had painted my room a dusty pink! After the initial shock of my room being a different color set in, I actually really loved it.

During the winter in my senior year, my mom and I started going to Marshall’s and Burlington to see what we could find for my new, very grown up bedroom. I think what we found (and are still finding) are awesome pieces that I will hopefully have and cherish no matter where I move in the future.

Let me take you on a tour of my most favorite parts of my room at home!

IMG_9942.JPG

Hi people! How is everyone’s week going?!

Today I am on my blog sharing how I can take one outfit from day to night with just a couple little outfit switch-outs. 

Sometimes us gals on the go need some tips in order to 1. keep our sanity 2. save on time and 3. stay looking fab. Ever been out all. day. long and think, “well, I have something to do tonight, how the heck am I supposed to change from this to something completely different without going home in between? I don’t have time to stop home!”

You don’t have to!

Chatting about my FAVE Influencers!

Hi everyone! I thought I’d come on here today to chat about my favorite influencers. As someone who is in the blogging sphere, I sure love to dive into the articles and videos of others.

I LOVE seeing other people’s adventures, the products they use and how they style their outfits.

Good morning everyone!

It’s another hot hot day, so I’m staying inside and catching up on some work and crossing some things off my to-do list! I love days that I can just mentally organize my life (and my desktop)—it makes me feel put together, even if I am not!

I wanted to post today on my blog because I have really exciting news! I’ve teamed up with XO Mandy Sue, a boutique out of Newport, California to bring all of my readers and followers a discount code for their entire site. With the code RACHEL35 at http://www.xomandysue.com/ you can get 35% off your entire order! Their clothes are FAB, I posted a photo in the jumpsuit I got from them in THIS blog post, and here I am to talk about their Bedford Jeans—a personal favorite of mine.
