Why You Don’t Need to Save the World in Your Twenties

Why You Don’t Need to Save the World in Your Twenties

You went to college. You probably did a pretty dang good job while you were there too. You had a good GPA. You had killer extracurriculars. You got an internship or two. Then, you got a job offer. You graduated. You (*potentially*) travelled the world for a bit (because #backpacking). And then you walked into your first job and realized, “what the heck am I doing with my life?!”

The millennial struggle: I got a “great” job, but I’m not saving the world. I go to work and sit in a cubicle (or maybe even a closet) with Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint decks and emails and meetings…and I don’t think I’m changing anything.

Embracing Change

Embracing Change

Happy hump day, people!

Last week you may (or may not) have noticed I was pretty quiet. In a spirit of honesty, it’s because a lot of things in my life have been changing. No one loves change (or maybe you do and I respect that), but this girl especially doesn’t. I don’t know why I felt like I needed to share what’s been happening in my life as of late, but here it goes.

The Importance of Finding a Mentor

The Importance of Finding a Mentor

Bear with me here, because for this post I’m going to take you on a little journey.

I moved to Dallas almost exactly two years ago today and started working at my current job shortly after that (seriously, where has the time gone?!). This week, I’ve been reflecting on all the people who made that happen and all the people who have made this city home. For those of you who don’t know, I sought a lot of wisdom from a lot of people (a few of them being mentors) in making the decision to move to Dallas. While it wasn’t far from home, the move didn’t really make sense at the time.

What I Actually Bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

What I Actually Bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Happy Sunday, friends!

As many of you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started this weekend. If you follow ANY fashion bloggers at all, your Instagram feed has probably been filled with the best buys from the sale and basically why you should buy all the things. BUT you should still keep reading because I am making no money off this post. I’m legit just trying to help a girl out. Thank me later. 🙂

Corporate Culture

Corporate Culture

Throughout the past two years at my job, I’ve been asked many times what made me choose to work there. We joke about it all the time at recruiting events, but the answer truly is “the people”. The people are the driving force behind the culture at a company – they maintain it or they can change it. But before we get into the details, let’s break down what corporate culture is.

June Jams

June Jams

During summertime, I always find myself listening to ALL the music (okay, maybe I’m exaggeration…wouldn’t be the first time). But everyone needs some jams by the pool, during your summer road trips, or just to brighten your workday…especially when you can see the sunny weather outside. So without, further ado – here’s what I’ve been listening to in June!
