Hello everyone!

It's so lovely to be back. I've been busy since I last posted about my move to NYC coming up in June. I graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Merchandising and a minor in Fashion Media two weekends ago. It was a very strange day to finally graduate after working towards it for four years. The day was filled with all happiness and no sadness. I loved college, but I am ready to move on to the next stage of my life. I'm excited to get out there and start utilizing my knowledge instead of containing it inside a classroom. My education at Kent was great, but I think that a hands on learning experience in the industry is where I'm really going to exponentially grow in my skills.

I moved out of my apartment the next day which was a HUGE task. So much stuff accumulated after living in that apartment for two years, that it was a nightmare to move it all back home. I just finished unpacking everything yesterday and can finally see the living room floor again. My mother is relieved!

Right after my graduation and move, I flew to New York City for two days to showcase my portfolio that was selected as one of the top in my class. It was a great and very rewarding experience to be able to talk to alumni and possible employeers. I received helpful and encouraging feedback on my work, and left NYC with some contacts and possible beginnings for a job.

I'm in Ohio for just a little bit now before I move to NYC officially. I've been trying to tie up loose ends and get all of my appointments taken care of. Being back in the city last week for the showcase made me more eager than ever for my move. Sometimes being away from NYC I wonder if it's not as great as I remember, but every time I return I'm reminded it really is home to me.

Excited to update you guys about my journey in the next few weeks! I should be posting regularly again with outfits before I leave. I want to soak in Ohio's beautiful landscape for a few more shoots before it's concrete and sky high buildings from here on out.

With much love,

Lauren.
