On a personal note....

Happy Sunday!! I'm currently watching my team right now and hoping they win today. I was mapping out posts for this month and just wanted to do a personal one today. There has been so much going on lately and I'm proud of myself that I keep moving and pushing. I just felt like somewhere I lost my drive and focus. I was feeling a bit lost about my career path and what I wanted to do and it scared me a bit. For one, my age and worried about where to start. I know what I love so much and what I hate doing. It's just a matter of narrowing it down. I had a thought of going back to school for journalism. I was thinking of expanding myself to writing beauty related articles for magazines and improving how I write on this blog. Then I was thinking hard about going back for my masters. Would it make me more marketable to companies? Would it better my carrer path? But the thought of doing homework again and writing papers made me stand off a bit. The job market now is so hard, I'm just getting frustrated with putting in hundreds of applications and hearing nothing back. I know I have to stand out to someone, that they would see the potential I have. I know I'm a great team worker and I get my work done. It's just a lot going on in my head but I'm happy for not giving up and being so patient with life. I know that job is coming soon, that opportunity will present itself. I'm so thankful for learning to be more patient and knowing things will be okay. I know I won't be in this runt for long. I also have been looking for blogging groups and in New Jersey and Philadelphia area and haven't found a thing. Most of what I have found is no longer active. I just want to network and get myself out there. I want to expand and grow. I love the blogging world and so grateful for sticking to this because I really love it. Hopefully I come across something or I should just start something myself. 

Hope you guys enjoy the rest of the weekend and see everyone Tuesday!!


  1. I understand the whole going back to school thing. The thing that really sucks is that I work with people who don't have their bachelors degree (and I do) and we make about the same money. Also, there are people that don't have a degree and make way more than that is why I decided to not waste my time or money getting my masters unless I am in a job where they will pay me to go back and get it,

    1. I know that feeling, I was in a job like that where managers didn't even have a degree and I did. I work with people now who have or working and masters and its making me think. Thanks for reading Tanya!

  2. don't ever give up love. it may take time, but that opportunity is out there! If this is something you really want to do, it will come =) Networking as I have learned is hard, I am still learning as I meet new people through this blogging journey. We may not have PhD's or MBA's but we do know how to use social media and how to social network, and use that to your advantage! A lot of these companies are still learning about it and as bloggers, we are great examples of social media influencers.

    1. Thanks Jackie!! I'm still trying to network and get myself out there as much as I can. Social Media is really big now and it is at our advantage!

  3. Never give up on your dreams! I think at some point in life everyone feels this way. I know I have! Even though I have a B.A. in Psychology, I'm not currently pursuing it. I've been thinking about going to grad school soon, but until then I make the most out of what life has to offer. I know that they're so many wonderful possibilities out there. Things just take time and I think you're great at writing on your blog! Good luck with all your future endeavors Andrea!

    1. Thank you for your kind words Pilar!!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
