Thanks, Thursday v.1

Okay.. sometimes I feel like I don't always appreciate all the things around me as much as I should. So, I'm going to start a little segment on my blog and dub it, "Thanks, Thursday!" Every week I'll try and write a little blog about something or a few things that I'm thankful for.

This week, I'm thankful for my mom! (I know, I know... it's cliche for a first post.) But, my mom has honestly been helping me out a lot lately - and I don't think she realizes how much it means to me. Even though I tell her each and every time!

If you didn't know, I go to school 900 miles away from home. It's hard on mom, obviously! But just this week, she mailed me enough groceries to last the zombie apocalypse. (And then asked if she sent enough...) Today I picked up two twenty pound boxes from the mail room - filled with food - and I swear I can barely fit it all in my cabinets.

Now, she didn't have to go out of her way to grocery shop for an extra two people, package it all up, haul it to UPS, and send it 900 miles. Nope. It would have been so much easier to just send cash. But this week (and basically every day) my mom goes the extra mile for me. And she has no idea how much I love her for it!

Love you, moms!

(Okay, so there's only 1 picture of her in that collage, but I'm in it too - and she raised me... and I was precious. Justified.)

Mémoires de Paris Preview

Hey everybody! I'm really excited to share some of my favorite pieces from the fall launch with those readers interested in jewelry and fashion! The Mémoires de Paris collection is near & dear to my heart. In high school, I went through 4 years of French language and became almost fluent. Today, I have almost no use for my French, and have lost most of what I have learned.

I have forever since been influenced by French language and culture, and love each of these pieces in their own way. If you have any questions about a piece that is not tagged, feel free to ask in the comments!

Senior Year Begins

"Hi everybody, my name is Deanna and I'm a senior in creative marketing and design."

Is this honestly how I have to introduce myself in all my classes? A senior? Already!? I feel like I was just a freshman... College so far as been a crazy, chaotic, emotional experience on so many levels and I'm not quite ready for it to come to an end!

I have so many things going on this semester, I hope that I'll have a second to revel in my seniority...

I'm taking 6 (technically 7!) classes... I have a couple of core classes that I'm behind on... College Algebra, Intro to Pre-Health Sciences I, and World Civilizations through the 1500s. But I do have a lot of classes related to my major that I'm looking forward to! Social Media Marketing (obviously!), Pre-Omega, and Art & Craft Design (!!!).
I have an internship! I'm officially interning with The Sampler! The Sampler is an incredible LA-based music blog that offers an eclectic mix of music recommendations right on the first page. No more searching through hundreds of genre-based music blogs looking for new music.
I'm still working for Chloe + Isabel! We just launched our fall collection and I'm so excited to share it in the next blog post. I'm giving away a pair of the round emerald stud earrings to a lucky customer who makes a purchase between now and August 31st at 11:59pm! Be sure to sign up as my customer so that you can be considered for any future contests!
And I'm still selling on Etsy! I haven't been adding too many new pieces, but there are still a bunch of favorites available. Shop here!

I'm so excited to track the good (and the bad) moments through my senior year, and I hope you'll stick around to experience it with me!
