It's this Sunday if you didn't remember! Still haven't purchased a gift for the mom in your life? Don't worry you still have time... well a little.  Above are a few items I think any fashionable mother would love. I mean if you gave your mom a black blazer or a YSL bag or a box of See's Candies would she really say no and push it away?! Most likely not! And if by Sunday you still haven't made a purchase or just don't fancy anything you've seen, you can always give your mom a cute card (like the one above) with a thoughtful note inside... now i know for sure any mother would appreciate that!

My First Internship + Useful Websites for Media Industry Jobs

Hey guys! Since I last posted, I started interning at a fashion PR company in Beverly Hills. So far it has been an interesting and insightful experience. I have met some cool girls and most importantly received some insight into the PR industry as well as my own personal career interests. Going into the internship I did not really know exactly what the fashion PR industry entailed. However, now I think I have a pretty good grasp on the industry as a whole. So far, my main duties as an intern are gifting products for celebrities, stylists, and other professionals as well as organizing and maintaining the showroom.

To be honest, I am still unsure exactly what career path I would like to take, which I think is okay especially because I am only a freshman in college. I am not looking to be a lawyer or doctor or even accountant so I have to dabble more in different industries to see exactly what I truly enjoy. I just know I want to work in the entertainment industry doing some sort of PR/Marketing/Communications related job. Even from this internship, I feel like my career path has become slightly more refined. Since I started interning in fashion PR, I have realized that although I love fashion, I may not want to work in the fashion industry at all. In the future I am looking to explore the entertainment and film industry. 

My advice for anyone in a similar position as me without a clearly defined career path is to intern, intern, intern and in many different areas of interest. Also, read descriptions of  various job positions online (my fave website is to really see if that is what you are interested in as well as what credentials are required. Below is a list of a few websites that I find incredibly useful as a college student trying to pursue a job in the fashion, entertainment or media industry. Good luck with your career endeavors!

Must-Follow Instagrams For Fashion Enthusiasts

Nearly every fashion-lover has an Instagram. That is inevitable. But at the same time many of these fashion Instagram accounts are nearly the same. As I scroll through my feed, I often see very similar outfit, food and selfie posts - all which often have no flair or originality. It's challenging (well sort of!) to find amazing fashion Instagram accounts that have personality. Luckily for you, I am sharing a list of some of my favorite Instagram accounts that are more refreshing, quirky, and interesting. My favorite Instagram of all time is @barbiestyle. If you have not checked this account out, please please please do so. Whoever thought of it was beyond genius! Barbie is most definitely my favorite fashion influence!

Current Obsession: Chanel CC Earrings

I have never been a big fan of earrings until I bought these. Whenever I put on my Chanel earrings I instantly feel a bit chicer and more sophisticated; I guess that's the power of Chanel!  I purchased these earrings a few months ago and have since been wearing them quite frequently. I purchased the the larger sized crystal and brushed gold CC earrings. At first, I was a bit resistant to purchase them because although Chanel, they are still costume jewelry. I was worried that they would tarnish or that the crystals would fall out. However, so far I have not had any problems (granted I do not shower nor sleep with them on). These earrings are definitely one of my best luxury purchases. I even have to force myself to not wear them at times! What is your current fashion obsession?
