Better days

better days

The last few days have been nothing short of a magnificent blur. So I started my new internship with Caren West PR on Wednesday and boy, they did not hesitate to get us to work. And I love it. So far, the experience has been more than I could have imagined. There are four total Publicity Assistants and we’re all surprisingly Taurses (as is our boss, Caren West).

I’ll write more about what I’m learning along the way but I just wanted to drop in with a weekend note. I also wanted to apologize in advance for any sporadic posts to come. Still getting a hang of this new schedule.

If you’re in Atlanta and looking for something to do, Atlanta Streets Alive is this Sunday. I’ll be volunteering with MODA. Come see me.

Eat, drink and be merry.

Lucy’s Travels: New York City

Whether you take a trip to a neighboring city or abroad, travelling broadens so much of your perspective on life. Travelling exposes you to cultures that you couldn’t possibly experience by simply watching television. Not to say that you can’t learn about cultures right in your own backyard but it is a magnificent experience once you venture out.

I’ve always found aspects of myself in others while travelling. Like attracts like, right? Connecting, listening to stories and observing have always made me feel alive. On this trip to New York, I was able to run into quite a few amazing individuals who made my trip worthwhile. Thank you Channing, Daphne, Cindy, Taniel, Irveline, Christiana, Derrel, Krystal, Cynthia, Monisha, Aisha and Ulysses for showing me a good time.

3 things my god-daughter taught me

I spent my Saturday with my delightful god-daughter. Those of us without children know how every opportunity to spend time with someone else’s child is either practice or prevention. Luckily, my little princess is not that bad, lol. She’s actually very intelligent. Little did I know, I would leave her a little wiser.

Why coddling doesn’t work in the long run

Girl-screaming-007

My mother is the eldest of six children. For the majority of her life, she has been a practicing nurse. We all know that the eldest child has a tendency to be the bossy, know-it-all type. Well, not my mother. Before she even became a mother, she was a mother to many. She has always had a caring and nurturing disposition.

A blessing and a curse.

Eye can see clearly now: GlassesUSA.com

I’ve worn glasses since I was a junior in high school and since then, I’ve gone through six pair of frames. I love the versatility of eyeglasses. One day I’m school teacher chic, the next day I’m classy hippie. Every year or two, I get the itch to purchase new frames. It’s like GlassesUSA.com read my mind because they reached out to me with a sweet deal.

Cutie and the boxer

A friend of mine posted an intriguing photo about a new documentary. She said it was a love story so of course I looked it up. After seeing a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I knew it would be a must-see. Cutie and the Boxer chronicles the difficulties in life and love of two creative individuals. Married to each other and to their crafts, boxing painter Ushio Shinohara and artist Noriko Shinohara sacrifice everything for their art.

Sock it to me

So excited to feature a guest post by friend and fellow blogger, Danielle of Olive Juice & S’Mores blog. I reached out to her about collaborating because she has such a fun style, reflective of her personality. I saw a few of her Winter posts on Instagram and just knew a cool covering of her style is just the dusting this blog needed. So for today, we’ve switched blogs. Check hers out for my post. Don’t be shy, show her some love.

4 proactive things to do while waiting to land a job

So you quit your day job for your day-dream and now your day-dream is turning into a nightmare. Or something like that. Well, don’t panic. If you, like me, still feel strongly about your decision to leave a position, remember why you did it and keep on believing.

I’ll admit, today wasn’t the most inspiring of days but I always come across some hopefel reads that lift my spirits. According to Forbes, 2014 is the year for women entrepreneurs. That’s exciting and encouraging because we’re all in the same boat: shifting our dreams into fruition. Glass ceiling what?! Tuh.

End of the month review

One of my favorite blogs to read is by Nicole Antoinette of A Life Less Bullshit blog. Besides the fact that her main objective is living a bullshit-free life (lol to the name), she is completely transparent and 100% dedicated to helping you and I stop living these fake ass lives. Today I received an email from her about a monthly review of the goals that she set for herself and her blog. I thought it was awesome of her to share it with us and now I’m sharing it with you. Check out the template for yourself, then read mine below.
