Sorry For The Wait!

Well this is really awkward...

I cannot even remember the last time I opened the "New Post" tab and allowed my fingers to linger over the keyboard. Oh was April 2014. (Oops.)

After I started working at Topman in Oxford Circus while overseas, my life became rather hectic. I became extremely broke, traveled to Lisbon, almost fell in love, went back to school, became ill from work and schoolwork, yelled at a few people, had a handful of mellow dramatic breakdowns, the list goes on forever! I allowed life in the blogging world to get away from me and many friends thought I ditched the entire concept of AMANDALUXE. Honestly, for the two months I wasn't blogging, I felt the same way. I understand I was preoccupied with making sure I didn't lose my job and didn't fail the course, but there's always time to show my entrepreneurial product some attention. Yes, my computer crashed and I had no time in my schedule, blah blah. Excuse are...?

If you all haven't picked up on it, I finished my course at London College of Fashion! I received a Merit overall (which is the 3.0 equivalent to my American readers). I was extremely pleased with this accomplishment--I guess the mellow drama and sleepless nights paid off. I returned back to the countryside of Cook County in the Southwest Suburbs about 19 days ago. It's been rather peaceful being at home. Plus, I feel a sense of security being able to hold my mother whenever I feel down.

I'm currently applying within the Fashion Buying/Merchandising field. I know it is going to take time and I'm allowing God to take full control of my life. I'm excited for my next chapter in life, yet a bit sad I had to end the previous one. It's hard to let such an amazing experience like that go. I studied a semester at one of the most elite liberal arts schools and worked at the largest fashion retailer in the world. I feel like I've been dreaming for the past four months and now I've woken up with the degree. :)

Sorry for the wait. LUXE is back.

Thanks for reading.


PS. I have dope pics! Enjoy.
