Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mom’s birthday and she is the ULTIMATE queen. I am so blessed and thankful to not only have her as a parent, but as a friend. She accepts me right where I am at in life and challenges me everyday to be the best person I can be. I decided to post pics of memorable days with her. Happy Birthday Mom!

Internship Reflections

Last night when I was catching up on some blogs, I came across Jennifer’s PeaceLovePR blog post from May titled “Taking Advantage of Interns”. Jennifer discusses how important it is to mentor interns, provide feedback  and mold student interns into the best professional they can be in the future. I loved the post and was reminded how thankful I am for three awesome internships I completed; specifically because of the way I, as the intern, was treated and what valuable tools and lessons I learned personally and professionally. The three internships I want to reflect on were with MDA, SBC Advertising and Intern Queen, Inc. […]

A Refreshing Crown Polish

Hi! So I’ve had a couple of eventful and unexpected days lately that switched up my weekend plans, but overall-I can’t complain about my life lately!

And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control, by who she is and who she is trying to become because as every woman knows, measurements are only statistics, and statistics lie. -First read this […]

I see beauty in disaster

“I love vacant beds and crumpled sheets, ladders in tights, and intertwined legs. I love bruised knees and protruding bones, inside out tights, and windows frozen in ice. I find beauty in spirals of smoke. I see beauty in disaster, in the chaos of a litter-strewn room, or a face dripping in tear stained mascara. I can’t explain why I find myself intrigued by these things, i’m beginning to think that theres no need for explanation.” – Unknown

Happy 4

July 4th has been my FAVORITE holiday for as long as I can remember. I love how everyone comes together all day to celebrate our nation’s birthday with their friends and family. Every year it’s a little different for me because recently I’ve always been in different places with different people over the holiday. This year, I’ve been so content spending the day in the amazing weather with our family friends, eating amazing food and getting excited for the fireworks show (in a few minutes!) Below are some pictures that encompass why I am so in love with this holiday; from patriotic interpretations in the […]
