Holiday Cheer

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Here are a couple highlights from mine.

On Christmas Eve, my grandparents came over and we opened gifts. I got some clothes, which I will post about later, and my big gift was a Pottery Barn McKenna Jewelry Box!


On Christmas Day, I went to the boyfriend’s house to see his family for a bit. It was his nephew’s first Christmas so the house was covered in toys. His mom got me some travel cases and a Style Me Pretty Wedding Book to get me started on my new career path. I’m really glad that everyone has been so supportive of my decision!


Jack got me the Kendra Scott Rose Gold Elle Earrings in Peach that I asked for! I’m taking him to a fancy mixology bar in NYC that he wants to go to as his present.


We then met up with my sister and took the train into NYC to see my dad and his fiancΓ©e. Before dinner at Smith and Wollensky, we opened gifts and had some snacks.



Hope everyone’s holidays were just as happy as mine!




Hi everyone!

As a soon to be senior in college, this is my last summer before I will be out in the real world. I spent a lot of time applying for internships and summer opportunities, but unfortunately none of them worked out.

After a slight breakdown about the woes of never finding a job because I don’t have an internship (I’m only a little dramatic) my mom suggested that I actually try, for once in my life, to have fun.

For almost my entire life I have been a dancer, giving up most of my childhood and social life to pursue what I thought would be my career. Recently I have realized that I just don’t have the passion for dance to continue to make sacrifices for it. I still love it and will always consider myself a dancer but I won’t be a professional.

So now what?

Now, after years of loving something because I am good at it, I need to find something that I actually love just because. I am hoping that this blog will encourage me to try new things, even things I think I won’t be good at, and see how it goes.

Of course you’re wondering, “Kate, don’t you enjoy writing if you’re writing this blog?”

And the answer is, I’m not sure. People have always told me that I’m a pretty good writer (I better be, since I’m an English major), and I have always countered with “I don’t want to be a writer”.

I’ve blogged about other things, and have a well liked preppy blog, but I think it’s time I did something that is just for me, where I don’t have to fit into the standards of a certain community or brand. I still like clothes and makeup and girly things, and I’ll probably blog about them here, but I also want to try new and different things.

Let’s hope I learn something!
