Farewell August, Hello September!

August has come to an end and September is quickly approaching!! It is insane how quickly time is flying. It makes you think about how short life really is. With that in mind, stop putting off those plans, dreams and ideas and do them NOW!! There’s no better time than right now! Go for it! I believe in you.. 🙂

August Highlights

August was such a great month! Full of celebration and new beginnings. I celebrated my 30th birthday and had an amazing time with a group of friends.

We had dinner at Eli’s Table located on Meeting Street. This was my first time eating there and I was extremely satisfied. The customer service was AMAZING!! I was given a complimentary glass of champagne as the birthday girl and our server was gracious enough to play cameraman for us.

To some it may have seemed like a pretty lame way to celebrate 30 years, but it was perfect for me. I wasn’t interested in doing anything too crazy.

A New Path

I started a new position at work which was pretty exciting. For the entirety of my career I spent my time on Patrol and for the first time I am in a new enviroment entirely; the SCHOOLS!! We are about 3 weeks in and I am starting to see how my purpose can be fulfilled here. Our children spend the majority of their day in school. For some children, school is the only positive atmosphere in their life. With that being said, it is very important for teachers, and myself, to make a positive impact in their lives.

Being an SRO, you have choices. You can chose to sit in your office all day and do nothing, or you can choose to go out and interact with the students and staff. Get to know your school. Attend meetings. Open the doors for the car riders. I love talking to the students. I love walking down the hallways and giving high fives as the kids walk from class to class. Its those little gestures that makes huge impacts.

Another thing I learned after Week 1 of being in the schools. Vitamin C!!!!! I am currently getting over a cold after spending time in one of my favorite 5th grade classes. Thank goodness it wasn’t Strep!

Awaiting Fall

$12 outfit from Marshall’s

I have become obsessed with Fall fashion. I have also taken a fancy to buying more for less. You’d be surprised what you could find on the racks of Goodwill, Marshall’s and other consignment stores. Please stay tuned for my next post. It’s going to be filled with Fall Fashion Fun!!!!

I must admit, I am happy to see Summer come to a close. I am ready for the beautiful Fall decor, those beautiful oranges and greens and those cozy comfy over-sized sweaters!! Are you ready for Fall?

Back To School Try On Haul

Its back to school time you guys!! Apricot Lane Charleston has stocked their shelves with amazingly cute pieces that’ll have you ready for school and ready for the fall. They have introduced a line of fun colorful sweaters that are so comfortably made and very lightweight. So, without further ado, why don’t we jump right in!

Yellow is by far one of my favorite colors. These pieces were very comfortable on the skin and not itchy at all like most sweaters tend to be. Different shades of yellow are perfect for summer as well as fall. These sweaters can be paired with your favorite shorts for the Summer OR your favorite pair of Denim and boots for the Fall.

Remember years ago when you were in elementary school, and your parents made you wear those ugly Corduroy pants…lol or was it just me!? Well they’ve made a comeback. These cute skirts are all the rave and perfect for the Fall. Can be paired with a cute top and cardigan or a cute sweater and your favorite pair of shoes.

Flare, flare , flare!!! Flare jeans have definetely made a comeback in today’s fashion scene. I have fallen in love with flare jeans and I had to add a few pairs to my own wardrobe. It totally take your outfit to another level. Lets bring back the 70s with style!

Don’t start the school year without checking out Apricot Lane Charleston. They will also be having a fashion show Tax Free Weekend. Come check the store out August 3rd! Thank you for checking out my try on haul. Be Blessed. xoxo
