13 Things Creative Minds Will Understand

1. It’s so hard for you to pick a career path. 

You see yourself being happy in a multitude of different career paths. You are versatile. But, don’t look at it as a bad thing. Go where your talents take you!

2.  You wish you could find a career that has everything you like to do rolled into one

I am a hair artist, business women, blogger, social media butterfly, interior design extraordinaire. Why cant there be a job that satisfies all of those talents? So many things inspire you, Its hard to pick!

These are a few of my favorite things.. 

3. You love learning new things.

You love to research new topics. DIY’s, recipes, techniques, tools, trends, whatever it is. You are always expanding your mind.

4. You need to create to be happy 

You cannot live your days without working the right side of your brain. You need to express yourself in one form or another.

5. You’re always explaining to people how creative jobs ARE in fact real careers. 

Not everyone is meant to be a doctor or a lawyer and thats okay. Although some people may not understand the importance of creative minds, don’t let that discourage you from chasing your own bliss.

6. Inspiration hits you at the weirdest times. 

You could be watching a commercial on T.V.,  walking down the street, or even brushing your teeth. Its these little bursts that keep you going and constantly improving your work. Embrace them.

7. You place a huge importance on originality. 

You want whatever content you produce to be unlike the rest. Naturally, you love to stand out in the crowd and make your own rules

8. You get happy seeing a blank page. 

Whether it’s a canvas, a webpage, a piece of paper. You get excited about the possibilities of what you are about to create. You get a thrill out of creating something from nothing.

9. You’re indecisive. 

Although Its the best feeling when you finally do create your master piece, It takes you a while to get there. A million ideas run through your mind a minute. It takes a while to pick one (or 5) to settle on.

10. You don’t care what anyone thinks/says.

“So, which apartment building is yours again?”

Naturally, you walk to the beat of your own drum. Because you are original, you really don’t care what anyone thinks about how you live your life.

11. You surround yourself with things that inspire you.

This could be a person, a book, a coffee shop. You love things that make you see the beauty of the world and you surround yourself with them.

12. You are open minded. 

You understand that there is no one way of being or doing things. It is easier for you to acknowledge different ideas/opinions, even if you don’t agree with them.

13. You are always writing things down.

Nothing seems worse than loosing a great idea to the abyss that is your mind. Thank god for your “notes” app on your phone, but I prefer old school pen and paper. ( More doodle room).

Perfectionists starting a new job… listen up!

Hello Everyone reading from around the world! Thank you for tuning in on another Thursday with me.

I just accepted a new [DREAM] position this week as personal assistant to blank blank blank an NYC based Wedding Planner.Unknown-2.jpeg

Now I pretty much have to stay hush hush about the entire thing but I WILL tell you that whatever you are working towards.. KEEP GOING. I never thought this moment would come and it has finally arrived, guns blazing.

Naturally, since this is my first week, I am making mistakes left and right. My inner perfectionist cannot handle it guys.  So if you are a type A personality that has written down an allotted time to even read this post… Keep reading. IMG_2493

1. Anticipate that you will not have it all correct the first time around.

Mentally prepare yourself for the undeniable fact that you WILL mess up sometimes. Whether its with a new job, school, or just in life in general, no one is perfect, no matter how hard you try to be. Give your self time to get adjusted.

2. Over planning can actual kill the plan. 

Give plans some wiggle room. Life is messy and not everything can be laid out in a perfect little package. Your boss is expecting you to be a little erratic your first week.

It’s okay.

3. Write it down and then walk away from it. 

When you have a million projects going on at once.. overthinking and overworking your brain can actually cause you to become LESS productive. Write things down to make sure you don’t forget, then take a break. Whether its just scrolling through Instagram or just having a quick meditation session at your desk… Give your noggin’ some breathing room to process.

4.  Focus on the good.

You obviously should learn from every mistake you make during your premature days at a new job. But, its totally okay to keep reminding yourself that you are making some  right moves (along with some rookie mistakes). This can boost your confidence and help lower the intimidation a tad.

5. You are doing great!

I know it may seem like you can also do better. But just know that you are doing a great job at adjusting to your new environment. Reward yourself for making it another day. Before you know it you will be running the place.. until then just keep learning.

This week’s post is about one of my newly found fashion favorites.. embroidery. Now I know what your inner 12 year old self is thinking.

“Embroidery is for old people.” ” I don’t want to look like my 68 year old grandmother”..

BUT, I’m here to tell you that you can incorporate this little detail into your outfits to add some sophistication and texture to any one of your favorite ensembles.

Found these loafers ON SALE at DSW.  $40 for these Frank Sarto babies.

This is definitely a fashion trend that I saw as a risk in the beginning. But I found that its a great twist to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall.
