    5 Simple Acts of Kindness You Can Practice Every Day

    In our first New York City Uber ride this past week, I was chatting away with our driver who commented that he loves when he gets Southern passengers because “New York needs more of your hospitality.” We hear it a lot southerners, but it got me thinking about all of the little ways I can be more hospitable with next to no effort at all. I also asked myself if I’m practicing those little acts of kindness in true southern fashion. So I teamed up with the Lela Rose x Payprus collection (one of the first stationery collaborations of its kind!) to put together 5 easy ways to be a kinder, more considerate person in today’s post.

    How To Get Invited to Fashion Week

    Because I’ve made it more of a priority to connect on Instagram with more bloggers’ accounts (to establish more of a community for myself), I recently noticed the amount of people who have hopes and dreams of coming to NYFW themselves. But it’s not as hard as you might think! I came to my first fashion week with less than 10k Instagram followers and in the beginning stages of my blog. Granted, I wasn’t sitting front row and getting invited to all of the exclusive events, I was here and present and soaking up all of the fashion week experiences. Being in NYC for fashion week is totally manageable and attainable if you follow the right steps and set your expectations accordingly, so I’m outlining them in today’s full post – as well as sharing these killer flare jeans that I packed with me!

    The Real Reasons Bloggers Go To NYFW

    We don’t work in magazines and we aren’t buyers,
    so why the heck are bloggers invited to fashion week and what exactly do we do there? 

    There’s a good chance this is a question that you’ve asked as you scroll through all of the NYFW Instagram posts that become – let’s face it – a little repetitive and dare I say it – a little annoying? Believe me, I’ve even asked myself this question multiple times – why am I doing this again? I’m diving into this burning question in today’s post!  (Spoiler alert: The answer is not to parade around in pretty outfits!)

    When To Quit Your Full-Time Job – 7 Signs To Look For

    This is a post that I’ve been wanting to put together for a while now. Not too too many people realize that I have left my full-time job yet (unless you follow me on Snapchat and are putting together the pieces when you see me snap during the hours of 8am-5pm). I’ve had two months to let everything really settle in, and so I’m sharing my thoughts on my exit process (it was a very long one) that brought me to the world of self-employment. What should have been SO obvious actually took a very long time manifest. If you’re also struggling with your own career, I’m sharing 7 signs to look for if you’re wondering when to quit your full-time job!

    As a background refresh, I graduated in graphic design at LSU, worked with LSU Athletics in creative services where I eventually became the creative director, left for a design manager position with Community Coffee last November. As of July 9th, I have been transitioning into being my own boss, and now blogging and content creation for brands is my full-time career. At the same time, I’m also assisting Community Coffee as a content creator – with the opportunity to continue this contracted role in the future.

    Ok phew, I know that’s a lot to follow – now let’s get to the good stuff!
