Get Inspired

It has been far too long since I have updated this silly little blog of mine and to tell you the truth, I miss it. Since I have started at the Academy of Art in January my time has been spent, drawing, writing, sewing, studying and making dates to meet up with friends to unwind in between. As much as I miss my leisurely days before I started this new endeavor, I truly have never been happier. In the recent months I have challenged myself more than I ever have simply by pursing an education in Fashion Journalism whole heartily, and the feeling is indescribable. I never liked school, mainly because I was never passionate about the field I was studying prior to this, but now that I have submerged myself into this field and know how rewarding the experience is, I encourage everyone who has ever thought about going back to school to further their education in something they truly love, to do it. Other than spending my days at school, I have been helping a dear friend with a fundraiser she is putting on for her dad who is battling pancreatic cancer and getting involved in Roots of Peace, a non-profit started by my friend Kyleigh and her family. I feel so grateful for the short 24 years I have been on this earth and more and more each day I feel inclined to give back as much as I can. If you have read this far into this lengthily and somewhat random post, thank you and bare with me as I will be making a conscious effort to update this blog more often! For now, check out a these images of Kyleigh {founder of Pennies for Peace}  that have been inspiring me {to go blonder} and getting me stoked for summer!
