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 Most of what I have found is no longer active.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!!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
