Back to reality, where 42 degrees is considered a heat wave.

Back to reality, where 42 degrees is considered a heat wave.

I’m baaaaaaack!  Preps, I just had the most fantastic vacation of my life.  There were some unexpected roadblocks like a thunderstorm and no wifi, but they helped me to appreciate sunny days and internet connection when I had them.  From Monday until Friday I was in paradise.  I got to experience 5 days that were typical ofRead More

A Bachelors degree is like a Little Black Dress.

Hello preps, My last post was anger ridden, not typical, but it happened.  I know its controversial and part of me regrets it, but not enough to take down the post.  I’ve decided to call LIM and have them clarify my scholarship package just for shits and giggles.  It can’t hurt anything and I canRead More

Trends and temptations

Trends and temptations

Yesterday I went shopping to prepare for my trip to Panama City in April.  I splurged on some “Red, Red, Red” lipstick at Clinique as well some powder.  Both items weren’t originally on my list, but just like handbags, make up is so much easier to buy than clothes sometimes.  I bought 2 pairs of shortsRead More

For sale sounds much more appropriate. In a housing market, real estate agents bluntly inform you “It’s a buyers market”.  In a jobRead More

I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

I’m laying in bed, on my fifth or sixth episode of Sex and The City, I’ve lost count.  Whenever I type, Carrie Bradshaw’s voice is ringing in my words.  Now that Gossip Girl is over (may she rest in peace) I’ve gone back a decade at least and I am obsessing over Manhattan’s other ItRead More

Thrilled and terrified

Hello lovelies, Just another day lounging around, except it suddenly became a lot more exciting.  I decided a few days ago that it was time to apply to FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology)!! I know what you’re thinking, HAULT. Put on the breaks. What? Weren’t you just blogging about being happy at Canisius and knowing you needRead More
