Thanks to encouraging words from my friend and colleague Deanne I have decided to go back to blogging. Note: Deanne has an AMAZING fashion blog!!! She is one of the best dressed at work (I am one of the worst) and always has amazing content on her blog!
So why the hiatus? Well it’s a bit of laziness + a pinch of procrastination and a whole lot of work. As a recap of the past year, since I’ve left Chicago, I moved back East and started a new career path in PR. I’ve always wanted to work in PR but didn’t really have the guts to pursue the path. There are no PR related courses taught at Duke, everyone who graduates either goes to Med School, Law School or Goldman Sachs (hahaha). So with an Econ and Philosophy major in hand what’s a girl to do in PR? Well long story short, start off by working your ass off for free and trying to learn as much as you can in a short amount of time!
I have to admit that I was extremely lucky to have a support system what backed me up emotionally and financially during my journey but it’s paid off as I am now working at a great company and loving what I do!
I also have to say that I am now a vegetarian and no longer vegan! WHATTTT??? To be frank, I just did not have time to prepare vegan meals and it was impractical for me to keep that lifestyle during that time. It was the night of the Mondrian Soho‘s opening party and the entire staff had to work the event. There was no time to eat and we had to go directly from work to the event. The office ordered pizza, which I “couldn’t eat” because I was vegan. And it just was an incredibly stupid move on my part because I was extremely miserable for the whole night and thought I would pass out.
Nevertheless, since that night I started eating dairy and eggs and have been feeling much better. Will I ever start eating a vegan diet again? Very likely. But that lifestyle just does not work for me at this time.
And since I no longer cook as much (that’s NYC for ya), my blog will move towards a lifestyle based theme rather than focusing mostly on food.
And I am officially out of the closet as a Hello Kitty fanatic. My obsession has become RIDIC. I surprise even myself. Below is a picture Dave took of my latest Hello Kitty acquisition (from Valentine’s Day) of “FiFi” planking:
Please note that the nasty pattern is NOT my bedspread. I have MUCH better taste than that .
