April Wish List

Here is my April wish list. Lately I’ve been searching for pieces for my wardrobe that offer the most versatility. I love how much possibility there is with these simple, staple pieces. One of my goals post grad is to reduce the amount of clothes I have. Quality over quantity with a mindfulness of versatility and adaptability. I have so many clothes that I like, but never wear. What’s the point in keeping them in my closet if they’re just taking up space?

What’s on your April wish list?

Live in the Moment, Time is Now

Live in the Moment

I am a college senior, graduating in less then 50 days. Like any senior about to enter the real world, there is so much to stress about. Where am I going to live? Where am I going to work? Am I going to get a job? Am I going to get a job I like?

Am I going to get any interviews? All while I’m still in school, taking six classes, and trying to enjoy my final weeks as a college student.

That’s a lot of pressure.

I am attempting to live in the moment. Obviously I need to prepare for my life post grad, but I don’t want to miss out on my last semester of college because I’m a stress case for what my life plans are come June.

I need to have confidence in myself that it will all workout and to enjoy life. Time is now.

I challenge you to live in the moment.

Thoughts?
