2017 was also the year of CHANGE! I finished up my last semester at The University of Iowa and graduated in May (and blogged all about it here). After that, I interned at the wonderful Ulta Beauty in their 3 month program and learned SO MUCH. Aside from all of the irreplaceable PR and marketing skills I learned, here and here I blogged about the fun beauty advice I picked up along the way. After that, I accepted a job at a PR firm that specializes in lifestyle and design clients and I moved to the incredible city of Chicago and I LOVE IT. After commuting from the suburbs while I found my new apartment, I finally moved in December and I cannot WAIT to show you my apartment tour in the new year. CHANGE is the one word I would use to describe 2017, but it was filled with wonderful, wonderful change.
What’s To Come in 2018
I have LOTS in store for you – here are some hints: new ways to follow along, some exciting giveaways, new types of content, and lots of fun partnerships. I cannot wait to get started on an incredible year of content and inspiration. Thanks for all of your support and I hope you have an incredible year!
