Through The Lens

The worst part of winter is not being able to run around without a coat on. I can't stop dreaming about the summer, and it's soooooo far away. I don't think it helps that this is going to be the coldest week so far. Nothing wrong with some warm thoughts right? I've been trying to snap some quick pictures whenever I get a chance because it's been so cold, and I am still feeling under the weather. This week is already starting off way better than last week and I am going to enjoy a few more days off before Monday rears its ugly head.

I am in the process of figuring out post graduation plans, which is pretty exciting for me. I am hoping to have more ideas that I can put into action soon, and more planning can be done one step at a time. The great thing about dreams is that they really are achievable if you have the patience and perseverance to see them through. As time creeps closer, I promise to share more details with you guys, and hopefully I will have more news very soon. 

In other news, my online class ends today! I will be taking my final after work and I am so happy to be done with it, I am ready for the spring semester! My classes this semester include small store fashion retailing, fashion merchandising, contemporary retail management, my internship class, and a team development workshop. I am most excited for the small store fashion retailing class. When I saw my advisor a few months ago, she thought it would be a good idea for me to take this course since I ultimately want to own my own business. If I had more time I would definitely be taking more classes (electives) that aren't mandatory for graduation. I have also thrown around the idea of taking some jewelry making classes after graduation just for fun.

Anyway! Before any more rambling takes place, I hope you guys have a great day. Keep that smile on. xo

  11. I was an art minor in college and there was a metal working class that focused a lot on jewelry making. I always thought it would be cool, but I just didn't have enough room in my schedule to squeeze it in.

    Anyway, really cute boots!
