Do Epic Sh*t

I had the opportunity to tag along with one of my editors for Creative Week. Creative Week prides itself for being “where advertising, design and digital media collide with the arts.” This includes a lot of my interests so it was a great first time experience. Since I was one of the few students in attendance I feel almost obligated to share some of the things…

On my Mind: my 20’s

It seems that I’m not the only one going through a period of transition. I’m only 21 and just beginning my 20’s, but I keep meeting people who are going through the same things, even years ahead of me, so I thought this passage (below the 2 images) was worthy of sharing. Worth the lengthy read:

Quotable and notable.

I can’t seem to find who said this quote but it doesn’t make it any less relevant or powerful. I thought it was too good not to share here- it has everything I needed to hear.: “There are going to be days when you won’t have the energy or drive to get out of bed. There are going to be days when you’re going to…

3 for 2013

2013. Another chance to get it right and another chance to outdo ourselves and the year before. Yesterday was day 3 of 2013, so I took the time to think about and write down my 3 New Year’s resolutions (4 just didn’t sound right.) Once you publish something, you’re held accountable for it. Here’s to hoping these resolutions will make me a better student, entrepreneur…

the Eye has to Travel

Both Maggie Prescott in 1957’s Funny Face and the hilariously ridiculous Miss Maxwell in William Klein’s Qui êtes vous, Polly Maggoo? were inspired by Diana Vreeland Who is Diana Vreeland? I didn’t really know, but I did hear how she had once famously said, “There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.” So in an attempt…

(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…

Heart, Smarts, Guts and Luck

So which one is it? Heart– like Howard Schultz of Starbucks? Smarts– like Billionaire investor Warren Buffett? Guts-like Richard Branson of Virgin or Luck-like Tony Hsieh of Zappos?
