For 5 years I put my blog first and whatever job second. I would post 2-3 times a week and spent hours on Photoshop building the perfect article. I wrote on the train ride into work, Sunday afternoons at Barnes & Noble, and I swear writing even cured my hangovers. After a while it killed me that I couldn’t give this blog my all because of the job I had. My parents agreed to give me 6 months focus on my blog if I worked hard and made enough money. I was 23, fearless, passionate… And in for a ride.

Everything was going well in the beginning. I had more time to network my ass off and build relationships with people in the fashion and entertainment industry. Phone call with Leah Jenner? No problem. Interview Carmelo Anthony? Done. You could no longer find me in Barnes & Noble, I was a girl on the go and no one could stop me.

I challenged myself to make every post more creative than the last. It wasn’t just a “blog post” it was a full on slide show with graphics, a Instagram flipagram, a photoshoot- it was my baby. I taught myself new tricks and took a course at NYU to learn how to code and use HTML.

About 5 months later and a very low income from my sponsored posts, I started having second thoughts. On top of that, something I loved, my therapy, wasn’t fun anymore. It dawned on me that my time was almost up, and that was ok.

At first I thought maybe I wasn’t ready. That’s probably true, but when are we ever really ready start a new career or a new beginning? Many of us feel we’re ready, but never take the chance. Well, I’m happy I took mine.

It’s been almost a year at my current job and I continue to be humbled by the fact that I don’t know it all. There’s so much left to learn and I’m excited to go to work everyday knowing I’ll be faced with a new challenge.

In the end, I’ll always believe in chasing a dream but I’m no longer afraid that dream is running away from me. We’ll meet again soon.

Amy Conway Mantra Collection Launch Party

Myself with Designer Amy Conway and Stassi Schroeder
The Mantra Collection
On April 23, 2014 Amy Conway launched her new Mantra Collection in New York City. There, at 87 Mercer Street, friends, family and press gathered together at Amy’s store to celebrate her Spring 2014 Collection. This collection was built around words that inspire others, soothe their soul during troubled times and ultimately make them smile.  There was without a doubt a lot of smiling and laughter going on during this the event. I believe the powerful Mantra Collection had something to do with that.

In Sanskrit, the literal meaning of mantra is, “instrument of thought.” A mantra is a word or phrase that has significance to a person. When it is repeated regularly, it is believed that the meaning of the word will become embedded in one’s consciousness. As you already know, Amy has created a movement in the fashion world with her influential jewelry and scarf designs. Her Mantra Collection features words that reveal our inner truth and touch our soul. The words “Magic” and “Love” are just a couple wonderful self-reminders that can help someone practice positive thinking. What words do you hold close to your heart?

We all have the ability to communicate the power of love; and with Mother’s Day right around the corner, there is no better way to spread that message than with a beautiful piece from Amy’s Mantra Collection. The party may be over, but the celebration of life and love continues on.love on butterfly
