Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks since I last posted because the weather has been unbearably cold in New York. But I am thrilled to see that I now have over 500 followers on Stylized Luxe, and I wanted to thank every one of my new blogger friends! Perhaps one day I'll set up a giveaway, but for now, here are 5 fun facts about me.
In college, my two roommates and I spontaneously got tattoos on a Friday night. Don't worry, we didn't get ridiculous matching tattoos or anything, but rather ones we felt were meaningful and representative of ourselves. Mine reads, True happiness is to love and be loved.
New York Fashion Week 2012 was the best time of my life. I was completely immersed in the world of fashion PR, where I prepared the venue, worked backstage and scrambled from one show to the next. You can relive my experience through pictures in my NYFW post.
My parents fill my world with art. I grew up watching my mom and dad, who are both textile designers in NY, create gorgeous hand-painted samples for brands such as Calvin Klein and Kenneth Cole. My constant exposure to colors, patterns and fabrics not only gave me a sense for aesthetics but also a passion to experiment with style. Every holiday season we design and make our own Christmas cards together!
I believe we should live happily, every day. When we're younger, we eagerly await our next birthday and dream of the day we become independent. Recent graduates anticipate their first jobs, while those in the workforce compete for promotions. We set goals, have expectations and strive for the best. However, it's easy to become discouraged when we don't achieve those goals in the projected time frame. It's easy to think, “I'll be happy as soon as I land this job," or “ ..as soon as I find the perfect partner." But what about today? There is something beautiful about each step in life — from academics, to internships, to the responsibilities of adulthood. Try to adjust your perspective and enjoy those steps too. Find something positive about your day, every day, and you will live a much happier life.
Thank you all for continuing to visit and challenge me to express myself both stylistically and intellectually. I hope you enjoyed reading the random facts & thoughts I shared! Stay tuned for new style posts in the coming weeks :)
