All Hallows Eve

Today is the day!

One of my favorite holidays!
(Not only because I can eat my body weight in candy and it's socially acceptable. I promise.)

Halloween is just the perfect excuse to get with your friends and have a great time!
On Halloween, you can be anything you want to be, whether that be a princess, a doctor (or the doctor), a pirate, or the ridiculously overdone (but still seriously punny) cereal killer.

There's no stopping you! Unless of course you have a job and you have to work Halloween night.
In which case, I am very sorry!

I actually ended up taking off from both of my jobs for Halloween this year!
I needed to use up my PTO for my real job and well, if I'm not going into my real job, there is no way in hell that I am going to set out to Mellow. Sorry, team.

Since no one took my poll (yeah, you guys suck, btw) and I ended up spending all of my money on Clinique and Bath and Body works (hey, there's nothing wrong with wanting to look and smell nice, okay!?) I am going as the Eleventh Doctor this Halloween!!

I may or may not post pictures.
I guess it really depends on how the night goes.
We shall see!!

If anyone else has some super awesome Halloween plans, let me know!!

Halloween Help!!

Okay guys.
I am completely obsessed with Halloween.

Like, the decorations, the costumes, the candy.
It's the BEST.

But I have a problem this year!
I just cannot seem to figure out what I'd like to be for Halloween!

My friends and I are going to a party one of the fraternities at my university holds every year called "Fright Night" so I absolutely have to be something fabulous.
But also significantly nerdy, you know? Because that's just who I am.

So I am asking for YOUR help!

If you could just choose an option from the poll below, that'd be awesome!!

If you can think of something else, let me know in the comments!

What are you going to be for Halloween?

Busy, Busy, Busy Bee!

Things are really picking up at work!

Which is super weird, since that is the exact opposite of what everyone was expecting!

I do the marketing and design for a Real Estate company and, as I'm sure you can assume, not many people typically move during the Fall/Winter months.
Well, not so this year, it seems!

We have had SO many new listings and closed listings I just cannot keep up with it all!

I'm designing new brochures, flyers, and postcards like a mad woman!
At least I'm keeping busy!

I also have recently been added to the blog for our company, so that's exciting!
Right now, I'm just blogging about our new listings, but maybe someday soon I'll be able to contribute some actual content!

I am also still in the works of developing a remastered social media marketing plan, so that's pretty exciting!

I know some of you out there have got to be into marketing, or at least social media, so any tips would be extremely helpful!
I learned a lot in my coursework and internships, but there's no reason to not look for a different insight into it!

I Guess It Could Be Worse

Can we just talk about how insane this week has been??

First things first, I've been super busy at my full-time job (why is everyone selling their houses this week??)
I cannot even tell you how many brochures and postcards and flyers (Oh my!) hat I have made for our agents this week. Plus, I'm taking over some of the corporate marketing since another marketing production assistant is going part-time. This week has been CRAZY.

Then there's the fact that I've been trying to get better about eating at home, so every night when I come home I spend probably an hour cooking when I would usually be relaxing on my sofa with a quesarito. And that relaxation would be accompanied by a few hours of watching The Big Bang Theory Re-Runs.
My roommate and I recently decided to get rid of cable, so every time I turn on the television I get a screen full of fuzz and a heart full of disappointment.
But don't worry too much. We might be getting Directv by the end of the month!

To make all of this even worse (is that even possible??) I started coming down with something Wednesday.
And it has progressively gotten worse and worse and today I feel like death.
Hopefully I'll be able to make a doctor's appointment for when I get off work.
One of my lovely friends agreed to cover my shift at Mellow Mushroom so I can go! Hooray!

My focus for next week?
Less stress.
More relaxation.
Less sickness.

Let's hope I can see it through!

Future Endeavors

 Okay, so I'm thinking of starting a little Etsy shop!

I paint, design, do paper crafts (think invitations, thank yous, paper boxes) and a bit of sewing, so I think it might be a good idea!

I have to set up a sort of "business plan" and starting working out when I'll work on the projects and stuff before I even set the shop up, so there's plenty of work for me to do. I also think I might wait until I get a new computer so I can better run my programs and such (I'm looking at this one. What do you think?)

Once I have everything finalized and I have the shop all set up, I'll be sure to post about it! 
This will be a way for me to have a creative outlet AND make a little extra money on the side! I'm pretty excited.

Has anyone else set up an Etsy shop? I definitely need some tips before I hit the ground running!

Think Pink!

As I'm sure many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

I'm not able to participate in fundraisers like I usually do, because of my job, so I'm sporting the pink in the office!

I'll be wearing my "Think Pink" ribbon that the ZTA chapter at my University chapter passes around every where for the rest of the month.
And I'll definitely be donating to Susan G. Komen!

Be sure to look around your area for any fundraising participation options so that you can help increase awareness and join the fight for a cure! And don't forget to make a statement by sporting your pink!
