Happy New Year!

I'm claiming a wonder 2011! I'm hoping to make a lot of great moves this year including finishing the MBA program at LIM College, Traveling through Europe, Moving to California, and most importantly getting married and having a child. Hopefully the in between time will be filled with fabulous times, making new friends, reconnecting with old friends, getting great grade and internships and ending with a great JOB in FASHION! But in the meantime I have a few New Years Goals!

  1. Live without FEAR! (I've allowed FEAR to stop me from reaching certain goals)

  3. Stop living in my head. (I say I like tons of things and want to go to tons of places and never go, 2011 I'm going!)

  5. Start Agency & Jewelry Line

  7. Be a better lover, daughter,  sister, aunt, and friend

  9. Get fit

  11. Maintain my natural hair



School: I've learned so much in this past couple of semesters! I feel like I'm starting to come into my own as far as the business side of fashion is concerned. I'm interested in things I'd never thought I would be like stock prices and watching the market; I'm watching the LVMH & Hermes battle like it's the Superbowl or the World Series or something. I've been so amazed by being introduced to a completely different aspect of the Fashion world and honestly it feels great. There's been several times where I questioned if I'd made the right decisions by leaving Team Rihanna and then Team Minaj and the answer is ABSOLUTELY! and although I don't see any immediate results in career advancement with what I'm learning I know I'm way more equipped to become a force to be reckoned with. Overall the program is great! My classmates are AWESOME!!!!!  and I'm hoping I've made some lifetimes associates and a couple of friends!

Internship: So much has changed since my last posting  although the career action has slowed down a bit. I left MC in November a bit earlier than expected due to a family accident/emergency; but honestly I don't feel like I was going to miss anything. After a while going to MC was like taking a remedial course, you know everything being taught but somehow missed the exclusion exam, but nonetheless it was a great experience for what it was. I wish I could have completed the entire internship but sometimes things happen you can't control. right?

Over all the experience was ok! I would most def recommend a young lady or man who has a desire to be a Stylist and one day an Editor to apply to the Fashion Closet; I believe it was just no something for someone with career experience to venture into. The atmosphere was awesome full of creative young and older people whom were most def going to be in the industry for the long haul! But for me it was just too controlled and I felt like I could have done much more if I had the opportunity, but the duty of an intern at a fashion magazine is pretty much sample trafficking, board making, errand running, data base updates and other small task. While I was in the mist of the internship I realized I didn't want to work at a magazine unless I was an Editors Assistant or an Editor. Hopefully next term I will be able to find a great internship (if I'm not employed) and an even better one at the end of my program!
