Five Things & the beginning of Fashion Week Spring 2012

{Kettle Corn from the farmers market}
This has been such an exhausting week. I have been on a mad search for a graphic design/advertising job and have come up completely dry. Which has just brought on more stress than I ever wanted in my life.  The only positives that came out of this week is that Fashion Week Spring 2012 has officially begun and I am officially embracing fall. How did your week go? What are you up to this weekend?

Fashion Week is my favorite time of the year.  Oh how I wish I worked in the fashion industry, for a fashion magazine, lived in New York and or able to be apart of Fashion Week. A girl can dream can't she? I need more connections.

Looks like the nude trend is continuing for Spring 2012! I am beyond excited.


  1. Fashion Week is so fun!!

    I am loving this ring in the last pic. I want!

  2. I have embraced fall as well, which is my favorite time of year! I love the nail polish color!

  3. I hate not being able to have candles in dorm rooms, I just have a little peace sign bath and body works air freshener. And unfortunately the caribbean escape scent has not ran out yet and I didn't buy a fall scent when I was at home, whoops. Moral of the rant is U'm jealous of your candle!
