This post is going to be a special one, and I can’t wait to finally talk about something so amazing that has been going on in my life.
It’s not often that you are confident on your career path as a mere elementary schooler, while spending your days learning basic multiplication and addition. However, ten-year-old me was an ambitious one, sketching designs, writing elaborate stories, and telling anyone and everyone around her that she was going to work in fashion one day.
I am grateful to that fearless young girl for leading to me to my present career path, now at 22 years old.
Just like many soon to be college graduates, I realized rather quickly that graduation was creeping up on me (May 9th to be specific) and figuring out what my future was going to hold was probably something I should think about (just little things, ha)
For as long as I can remember, I knew that I would one day call New York my home. I would have a closet (ok maybe a storage unit at this point) that would impress even Carrie Bradshaw, a shoe collection that would call for some much needed therapy sessions, and I would make all of this a reality if it was the last thing I did! So, what do you know- its all happening.
When I say this all happened on a whim, I am not exaggerating. Within a short three week time span I went from no post graduation plans, to three back to back interviews in New York, to a job offer, to a start date, to a new apartment, and that is just the beginning. How I have not completely lost it yet, is truly beyond me. Ok- maybe I have… just a little.
My new job is for a company that is near and dear to my heart, French Connection. While studying abroad I interned for French Connection’s sister company called Great Plains U.K. To say I am reminiscent would be a bit of an understatement! I am going to be working in wholesale with various department store accounts! I swear just in that single day, so many of my dreams came true, and I am still not over it.
So, your girl is moving to New York, which I have said aloud so many times now and each time it doesn’t feel real. I will be moving to Long Island City to be specific, in the most beautiful apartment! Naturally, one of the only things on my mind is getting to the decoration phase of the moving. I cannot wait to play and make it a cozy little home. Did I mention my BFF Amanda is my new roommate? Still not over it. Amanda- if you are reading this.. I LOVE YOU.
So many decor/inspo posts to come and I AM SO EXCITED I CANNOT EVEN CONTAIN MYSELF.
Cannot wait to take some amazing pictures in the city and share my journey all on the blog along the way. Thank you so much for reading:) xx
