My life has changed drastically and, in honor of this, I want to start a BRAND NEW BLOG.

This is going to be the longest, most stressful, ridiculous weekend of my life. 4 day, 3 books, 1 5-pg paper, furniture diy, 1 move-in,1 2-pg proposal, a million designer outreach, and more! Ohhh boy. You know that saying, "don't stretch yourself too thin?" TOO LATE FOR THAT NOW!
The sun is making me oh so giddy! It's nice for CA to finally ditch the dreary clouds and rain and embrace the sunshine. Each day has been extremely busy and I'm getting into the swing of it. It's going to take some time but I can dig.
Yesterday I did the unthinkable. I went into Home Depot, alone, and stayed there for almost 2 hours. WTF RIGHT? I needed to pick up paint and paint supplies to DIY the old bed frame I'm using in my apartment. I spend forever turning around, looking from paint samples to paint samples, trying to figure out sponge vs. paintbrush vs. roller, but it was all worth it! I picked out a beautiful color by Martha Stewart called "Sea Glass," it's a nice sea foam. I can't wait to show you the final look and feel of my apartment room! Now it's time to get back to painting! Then off to do some thrifting for more furniture and hopefully I'll get through two of my books tonight!
I went for a little chill, down-with-the-flow kind of feel with my outfit. This is basically going to be my summertime uniform; high waisted cutoffs and a tee. It's comfy, relaxed, and no fuss. My kind of an outfit.

Summer happened and attacked so fast, I can hardly keep up with this busy as a honey bee life when I'm so accustomed to the lazy dazy hazy feel of the summer sun. I wake up around 8 AM and start my ridiculous amount of reading (300+ pages per night, sigh) for my social history class which I'm actually loving! THEN I have to get my little booty over to Berkeley and leave around dinner time amidst the horrific rush hour traffic. It doesn't sound like much, but it's definitely a hand full. Ahhh, I need to start updating more so I can cut down on my writing and post more pictures, cause, let's face it, no one likes a text heavy post!
Good news! Actually awesomely fantastic news! You're looking at the new designer outreach/boutique management/social media & PR intern at Member of Melange and I seriously could not be more excited! Not only is this my first ever internship but it incorporates basically every aspect of everything I like! My first fashion team meeting is tonight and I am in a blunder of nervousness/happiness, I can't wait to get deep into it and get started! I have one more internship interview on Friday, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and wishing upon 11:11!
I've been rather productive lately (GO ME!) and I'm entirely sure what's the deal with that. Not that I'm complaining whatsoever, I love the feeling of being productive and making little lists and checking them twice (oh Santa! You have the bestest job in the world!), but it's just something I'm not used to and I can't figure out what prompted it. It feels like one day I just woke up, the light bulb dinged!, and I came to the realization that I only have 3 years left at Cal...OH NO! HOLY COW! It's time to do everything I want to do and there's just so much I want to, hope to, wish to accomplish before my years in college are over. I love the tired feeling at the end of the day where I simply can't gather up the energy to stand up and knowing that's due to a day full of productive shizz, aww yeaah! Look at me, I'm all grown up! HOORAY!
On brighter news, literally, the sun is finally out! Yay, the sun has come out to play and I'm indulging in it before it leaves us again. Hello bare legs, good bye leggings! I'm finally getting back into my groove and wearing something more than my beloved oversized denim tops with leggings and moccasins, it's about time! These t-strap wedges are my new buffalo exchange haul, they're deena & ozzy and they sooo remind me of vampires, am I right? And if anyone dares to make a Twilight reference...well, I may just have to kill you. I couldn't wait to break out my vintage skirt from JoellenLove, it's so cute and I love the uneven and distressed hemline. Ugh, I've seriously missed wearing actual clothes, it feels oh so lovely.
