Squeeeeeeeee I’m so excited! As you’re reading this post, I’ll be in Washington D.C meeting all types of wonderful people at the Public Relations Student Society of America National Conference. The inner PR geek in me is literally melting. You know how excited you were when you met the Jonas Brothers when you were like, 12 (or 20…I’m not judging)? Multiply that by three and then you’ll start to understand exactly how excited I am to be attending this conference. For those of you who missed the memo, I’m super into Public Relations. While I love blogging and all of that, my career intentions actually lie with handling PR for various beauty brands. Actually, let me be specific. I’ve dreamed of working with two companies ever since I attended their events through my internship with Beauty Sweet Spot. Mark Cosmetics and Avon Cosmetics are my dream companies and literally NOTHING will stop me from interning there at some point even if I have to cut a bitch. That’s extreme, but you get my drift.
Anyway, that was a huge digression. This week I spent pretty much twiddling my thumbs, itching to get onto the bus that’ll take me to D.C and annoying every single one of my friends with my palpable excitement about all of the fun PR-y things I’m going to do. Pretty sure my roommate was about ready to punch me in the throat by the time I actually left our apartment, but whatever it’s all good. Since I obviously had plenty of time to distract myself with the Internet this week, I found some pretty rad stuff for you all to check out. Enjoy!
This. is amazing. So this girl makes YouTube videos about literally nothing (things like first world problems, relationship problems…you get the idea) but this is Internet gold right here. Her doo-wopy style is so ridiculously catchy that I found myself humming the simple melody while walking to class, and her facial expressions only make the video better. Check out her other stuff for more giggles if you’re having a particularly rough Friday.
Okay yes I get it, I’m really late to this party. While I had been all over LC, I failed to realize that her best friend Lo Bosworth (from Laguna Beach) also has a pretty kick-ass site that documents her interests in fashion, lifestyle, and most recently her adventures at culinary school. Her style of writing is super approachable and her team of bloggers are pretty hysterical if I do say so myself. The Lo-Down is a great waste of time for your daily dose of pretty.
We all know that I hate mornings. I’m sorry, I always have and I always will. Why would I voluntarily want to leave my bed before the sun shines to do a job that I could accomplish just as well after 11AM? I will never understand that and that’s why I have a sinking feeling that literally nobody will ever employ me. Oh well, at least the couch in my parent’s basement is comfy amiright? This woman is obviously not really a morning person either, but this contract proves that she’s at least able to wake up at 5am without causing anyone bodily harm…Hector knows better then to sign any kind of contract like this with me.
I LOVED the Fresh Prince when I was growing up, I thought Will Smith was the funniest thing since sliced bread (?) and I caught this clip of Carlton on DWTS and I nearly died. I don’t know his actual name, this dude will always be Carlton in my eyes, but watching that dance come to life in the middle of a super prissy Jazz set made me crack up. Check it out.
I arguably have really shitty handwriting. I don’t know how, my father has incredibly neat block lettering and my mom’s handwriting is GORGEOUS yet somehow mine looks like I never really made it out of the toddler stage. I do kind of a crummy mix of cursive and hieroglyphics that I’m pretty sure nobody can read, and it didn’t really bother me until my professor made me stay after class to yell at me for (what he thought) was curses in my scholarly paper. It was awkward when I explained to him that I wasn’t, in fact, cursing at him miraculously but that those letters spelled a completely different word then what he read. Oops. Anyway, calligraphy is SO BEAUTIFUL and lately I’ve been obsessed with making my lettering a little more legible. Who wants to take a class with me?
