Weekend Wrap-up: New Beginnings

EXCUSE THE MUSHY LIFE UPDATE BUTTTT: Tomorrow I start my first day with a new title and a new floor :D I learned I got a promotion 2 weeks ago and lets just say I could not be any happier. Long story short; I started as a intern, landed a job in a department unrelated to what I wanted to do. It paid well and I figured it would get me where I wanted to be. I graduated less than a year ago with my Fashion Merchandising degree and now... I GET TO USE IT. I'm so excited. I just can't believe it took me less than a year (9 months, symbolism anywhere?) I am thankful to have even landed a corporate job less than a month after I graduated college... But working my dream job is amazing. Its a hard career to land... I prided myself forever in making big goals and reaching for something seemingly unattainable. This industry is hard. Its not like being a nurse, where you take a few tests and then just work somewhere. Its more than that..and I love that. I can't wait to see what the rest of this year has in store for me... But its actually been pretty bomb.
P.S: Since I'm back in touch working in the fashion/apparel industry, EXPECT MORE POSTINGS! Lots of trend forecasting ahead for this girl.

Never let anyone tell you your dreams are too big, they're just upset because their dreams are too small.

OK, so back to my Weekend wrap-up.
LtoR: Salmon Kabobs from Zoes Kitchen are my absolute shit. Great for all these lenty Fridays//ODB Shimmy Shimmy Ya will forever be my go to jam. Its random and I obviously don't have enough photos to round out a proper weekend wrap-up.\\ I painted my nails jade-sh and pistachio. Great on trend colors for this season. //DO you remember Alaila Lee? I ordered the cutest MOST PERF scarf from her. Highly Recommended. \\ So the Williams Tower has made an appearance in a wrap-up in the daytime, it also looks really dope at night. // If you follow me on twitter you know I am OBSESSED with CENO, some artist who has been all up and down my stomping grounds making the city of Houston with his Cup of Purp. It makes my day when I spot one and I FINALLY was in enough traffic to snap a quick photo of his work. DETERMINED TO FIND HIM ( OR HER? )// Went to a rockets game too, we totes lost. Like really bad. But we had suite seats? That makes up for it right?
