lace yourself

I spotted Selena also at the Levo Launch Party. She stood out in a crowd of business basics in a lace printed metallic top paired with well fitted black pants and flats. Lace can easily look dated or “old” (and just plain difficult to wear as it can get caught or ruined) but her top only gave the illusion of lace keeping the look young,…

(fashion) Mentor

Finding a mentor, let alone someone to look up to is tough. It also happens to be advice for the workplace I repeatedly hear or read  in all the lectures, presentations, articles, etc I come across or attend. As a millennial I’m very selective (almost too picky) and I also find it increasingly difficult to find someone I’d like to model myself after especially as my path…

black and blue

As I mentioned, I met some lovely ladies at the Levo Launch Party. What’s great about doing business is that you can do great work and look good while doing it.  In fact, these days, that’s what sets you apart from everyone else just doing their job. Looking good can even make you do better work!  Starting today, I’ll be introducing some ladies I met that…

After Sarah Robb O’Hagan’s morning keynote, I attended three workshops then lunch was served. At the table I met another group of fellow students/young professionals but I was really looking forward to what was to follow.

FYG

Has it really been days since I posted? Anyway, I’ve been awake since about 3 AM and in an effort to fully regain consciousness I started to click through some random youtube videos. The first couple were ridiculous. Some were funny but I finally came across this one and I think it’s something we all need to hear.

Glux

In one of my classes, Global Marketing of Luxury Brands, (my friend and I like to call it Glux for short) we were asked to introduce ourselves by stating our name and answering the following questions: Why are you interested in Luxury? What are you passionate about? What luxury company/brand do you admire? What would you do if you had all the money you wanted?…

Not Political, but personal

I read/saw and heard about Michelle Obama’s speech in the media yesterday (above photo from my instagram) that I just took the short break I had to sit down and watch it for myself. I think I speak for both of us when i say: Wow.

On the right track

So, I know I said I would be blogging everyday …but I went away for the later part of Labor Day weekend to spent time with my family. Going away usually means more homecooked food and well deserved rest which means less or no technology which in this case meant no computer and consequently no blogging. I felt conflicted because I did make a promise to…
