Blog Awards

I’ve received two (one, two) of my first blog awards from hiking in stilettos, dashboard obsessions and brigadeiro.  What an honor.  Thanks ladies!

armani privé

10 facts about moi:

1. I have a horrible sweet (cavity) tooth with a penchant for doughnut hunting in the
dead of night.

2. I did ballet for 8 years as a young thing and I miss it.

3.  I was an AmeriCorps member for a year after college.

4.  I celebrated my bachelorette party w/o an engagement.  (I lost a bet).

5.  I have a phobia of roller coasters.  Insert blood-curdling scream.

6.  I love Korean food and I’ve been experimenting with my skills in making it.

7.  When I interned at Armani I got to try on a couple of Privé dresses.  I felt like Cinderella.

8.   I can throw a perfect spiral but I’m terrible at football.

9.  I prefer sending letters via post then email.  It’s an excuse to buy pretty stationary.

10.  I secretly wish I could be on “Dancing with the Stars”.  To learn how to ballroom, not
to be a D-list celebrity.

I’m told it’s my duty to tag 10 deserving bloggers.  These bloggers are definitely deserving not only because of their crazy blogging skills.  In addition, they one, actually read instead of glazing over the pictures and two, explore beyond the first post.  Here’s to not getting caught up in the bloggersphere grind and appreciating everyone as creative individuals.  Winners, you know what to do.

Drumroll.  The awards go to . . .

    no problem Kay! the Armani internship consisted of many things, but mostly showroom work. it was a pr internship and we were responsible for acting as aids to the higher ups. it definitely was a great experience.

    Your images have benefitted from your dancing background – your poses have lovely movement and therefore are so much more interesting than most.

    It also looks like a lot of people are interested in your armani internship, including me! Thanks for thinking of me too x

    Thank you so much for the award/tag! You are so sweet, and beyond lovely!

    Writing letters is such fun, and so much more personal and beautiful to recieve than an email. Glad to hear there’s others out there who feel the same!

    Happy Valentines Day!

    Hi I am about to go for an interview for an internship at Armani, from out of state. Did they by any chance help out on housing in the city, as I’ve heard some internships do. Also I have no idea what to wear? Any advice on the interview.
