The Last Goodbye


Last Sunday night was a night to remember with all of my beloved friends that I have been so lucky to meet through blogging. I wanted to get everyone in one place so I could say my last goodbyes before I leave for Philadelphia. We giggled and laughed over sushi and sake in Santa Monica. It was an amazing time. And I am so happy that I finally got to really meet Aimee from Song of Style, as well as her boyfriend. They are the sweetest couple ever. In just a few hours, I will be boarding a one-way flight to Philadelphia to start my new adventure as a stylist for Free People. Leaving my friends and family behind for this wonderful opportunity is bittersweet, but I am also in one of the most overly excited states that one can ever be in. I couldn't be happier right now. Thanks Mckenzie, Shea, Rachel, Eunice, Beatrice, Jules, Jade, Melanie, Rebecca, and Aimee for coming out Sunday! I felt so sad leaving these faces behind that night, but I know I will be seeing them all very very soon again! And congrats to Mckenzie from The Fitting for getting an internship at Free People's showroom in LA! Hopefully I get to see this girl in Philly someday soon :) Even though we met not too long ago, I feel like I've known her forever! Love all these girls! They are all the reason why I love blogging! Natalie will be in NYC next week to host a MANGO event, and she will be joining me in Philly for a weekend of fun and apartment-hunting! Can't wait! Going to miss you so much Nat, it's not even funny!
