Didn’t Even Make the Casting Call

model casting call, modeling, Denver Fashion Week

A few weeks ago, my mom forwarded me an email with the message, “You should give this a try.” As I scrolled through the images of the email to see what she was referring to, I realized it was a model casting call for Denver Fashion Week. You may recall that I wrote about my experience seeing a show at Denver Fashion Week last November, including how weird most of the clothing was and how strangely some of the models walked. Given the no-cost, low-stakes opportunity to finally launch my modeling career (rich with sarcasm), I figured, why the heck wouldn’t I try out? So I found a friend to go with me and we signed up to walk the runway at the casting call on March 1st. Continue reading “Didn’t Even Make the Casting Call”

My Valentine’s Day Plans

Last year for my Valentine’s Day blog post (which was published on the actual holiday), I wrote a very cheesy love letter to you, my follower. When I reread the post this year, I physically cringed – the writing is just so sappy! I really don’t know what I was thinking when I wrote it, ha. Regardless, the post received a very positive response, so if you’re needing a little extra love today, you can swing by and read my love letter to you (do your best not to cringe). But this year, I decided I wanted to take a different approach and just have FUN! So, not only am I sharing this very pretty dress, but I’m also listing all the V-Day themed activities I have planned for tomorrow, to give you some inspiration.

Staying Healthy in College: My Tips and Tricks

how to stay healthy in college, staying healthy, college living

I’m gonna get real with you all today (actually, I always try to be ‘real’ with you guys, as evidenced in my weird and awkward blog posts here, here, and here). Staying healthy in college is tough – very tough. You’re constantly surrounded by delicious temptations – pizza, ice cream, candy, oh my! – and you’re stuck with sub-par cafeteria food, which usually means turning to unhealthy snacks to satisfy your grumbling belly. Unlike high school, where a lot of us had some sort of scheduled after-school physical activity, college leaves you solely responsible to make time to exercise between your busy classes and stacks of extremely dry books to read. It takes a lot of self-discipline to get to the gym. Sure, maybe you lucked out and have a kitchen this year, so cooking your own meals is ideal. But realistically, do you have time to cook every night? Or the motivation? What about the money? ‘Cause healthy food ain’t cheap. I could go on, but can you see the dilemma of being healthy in college? Can you relate? Continue reading “Staying Healthy in College: My Tips and Tricks”
