DIY Glitter Flats

I’ve been swooning over these glitter flats by Steve Madden for a while now, but even at their sale price of $50, they don’t fit into my budget (I have student loans to pay here people). So what’s my solution to this must-have shoe dilemma? Make my own!

DIY Long Jean Shorts

I’ve been seeing a lot of girls wearing longer jean shorts around this summer (a trend I am happy to support). I noticed my sister sporting some the other day when we went out on the boat, and I fell in love. I’ve never been a fan of short-shorts, and capris have never looked good on me (they make my short legs look even stumpier – not attractive).  So when I saw this new “in-between” trend, I knew I had to give it a try.

"Change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn..." - Steinbeck

So, it’s quite obvious that I have been struggling to keep up on my blog since graduation. Transitioning from “student” to “adult” is a lot harder than it seems, and can quite honestly be a bit overwhelming. Between chasing down job opportunities, paying the bills and rearranging my sleep schedule to not include Fridays as a weekend, I feel like I lost myself and sight of what I wanted out of life for a while. Because of this, my inspiration to write died; I couldn’t focus on one topic long enough to formulate any semblance of an educated post and I didn’t want to write for the sake of writing, so I just let it fall by the wayside.

There has been a lot of negative buzz lately about Facebook changing their security settings and thus making users “private” information more vulnerable to the prying eyes of the public. I did some research and here is what I have found out about the newest changes to the website’s security:

Entry-Level Public Relations?

The elusive entry-level PR position; hard to even find posted by companies and when they actually are, they’re even harder to score an interview for. These past couple months of job searching on my part have left me at times doubtful and a little depressed, and at other times mildly irritated. The responses I have gotten from these so-called “entry level” positions (or lack there of) make me wonder if they actually even exist or if my cover letters are hopelessly floating around in the cyber abyss.

Twitter: the Newest Member of the Jury?

Twitter, for me personally, has been a great source of information, a networking tool and has unleashed an immeasurable supply of thought-provoking concepts via my contacts and the chats that I participate in.

Because of my love for writing and my background in journalism, I always try to participate in the weekly Monday night #journchat moderated by @PRsarahevans. Last night’s chat posed a topic that really made me think as well as wonder what others thought about the possibility as well.  The question, originated by @sarah_millar read: “Should reporters be allowed to live-tweet from courtrooms? Bloggers?”

New Year. New Beginnings.

I love the holidays – the lights, the music, family, the general shared feeling of merriment. The one thing I despise about this time of year, however, is the incessant want to make resolutions for the New Year. Maybe it’s because I’ve never been good at resolutions in general – I always wait until zero hour to choose something to change about myself, the choice is always something vague and hard to gauge, and within a month I have usually given up or at least lost motivation.
