I just recently bought a backpack –– something I told myself I would never do. I was perusing the aisles of Target and happened upon a gorgeous black, faux leather backpack for $14. Yes, fourteen buckaroos. Not only did I snatch it up quickly, but I obsessed over it the entire time I was in Target (which can be a very long time, if you're like me). The price was right, the color was right, and the style, well, I didn't know exactly how I would style it, but I just knew I needed to have it. Unfortunately, I don't have a link for you, as the backpack isn't on Target's website, but I do have 8 others that are just as beautiful!


Weekend Link Love | 10.19. 2014

Hi everyone! I hope you all have had a prosperous week and weekend. I know I sure did. Quickly, I'd love to thank everyone for viewing the blog since the relaunch. Your support means the absolute world to me. With the relaunch on our minds, I'm introducing yet another series - "Weekend Link Love." Nothing fancy, but I'd love to start sharing what I've been reading this past weekend and do a little blog lovin'.

+ I just found Kory Woodward's site and I love it. I especially love this post on the 5 Branding Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making. So insightful, and now I realize that I've made a few pretty bad branding mistakes (hello #2, continuously redesigning something).

As I near the internship search, I'm finding more and more that rejection is real y'all. That's why I loved reading Maya Elious' post on How To Handle Rejection. I'm trying now to not take rejection personal, but look at the bigger picture on why they "rejected" me.

+ Drea's post on Beyonce's bangs had me laughing too much. Read it here.

+ For some Youtube love, Shirley hit the nail on the head with this Olivia Pope inspired lookbook she did. She certainly outdid herself and I want everything from her wardrobe, pronto. Shirley's Olivia Pope Inspired Style.

Also - be sure to check out the reads tab of the blog. I've added a few new people that I think everyone will enjoy.

So, that's it folks. Go forth into this week with a clear mind, clear heart and a clear direction to your goals. Let's make some progress!
