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!

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!)
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.
I’m back with round two of my favorite hashtags for bloggers – this time with an emphasis on creative bloggers and creative business owners who work remotely. Even if the specific niche is not your own, I’ve found that even just a few of them will work no matter what your topic or post subject might be.
