Home Made Chandelier

How fun is this idea?! This chandelier is so cool AND cheap!! All you need is a hula hoop, a string of white christmas lights, and some wire. I’m definitely gonna try this out!



Lakefront Brewery

If you haven’t checked out the Lakefront Brewery Tour in Milwaukee yet, you need to! Since I’ve been living in Wisconsin for about 4 years now I thought that it was time for me to go on a brewery tour. It is Wisconsin after all! A friend and I went to the Lakefront Brewery. It was affordable, informational, and more than anything it was FUN! $7 got us into the tour, 4 6oz beers, and a souvenir pint glass!! This was the perfect thing to do on a Friday night!





Growin up fast

Sunday was such a surreal day. I graduated from Carthage College with a bachelors degree in public relations and communications. I couldn’t believe how fast the past four years went by, and it’s scary to know that I am in “the real world”. I started my internship at Diversey Inc. in Sturtevant, wi. I am a marketing communications intern specializing in the company’s social media. Everyone at Diversey has been so helpful, and I know that I will learn an endless amount of valuable information while interning with them. I can’t wait to see what is to come for me in the future. Change is inevitable, it’s how you adapt that sets you apart in the world. Congratulations class of 2012 and good luck to you all!

Is it possible to be in love with a dress?

Good Afternoon!

Today I ordered my graduation dress, and I cannot express how excited I am for it to arrive on my door step! I know it seems superficial for me to be so excited over a dress, but this dress is beautiful! I know that it will make my graduation day even more memorable. Speaking of graduation, how fast did these last four years fly by?! I can remember crying in the back seat while my parents drove me up to school, begging them to turn the car around. Thankfully they refused to do so, and I have had a wonderful college experience at Carthage College.

Anyways… Here’s the dress!
