I bought the skirt at Charlotte Russe and the necklaces at Forever 21
Today I spend 10 hours with my best friend 🙂 It’s always a great day when we’re together. It feels so good to vent and talk shit, talk about life, get lunch, go shopping, and drink wine with the one person who understands you best and you can tell them everything and anything and feel the most comfortable. It’s been tough living two hours apart, but luckily we have been able to make it work and see each other every couple months. Today we walked around the two local malls by my apartment and then just came back to the apartment to talk and drink wine. Time flew by so fast! It was a great end to my weekend 🙂
Step One: Leave the kids at home
In fact, don’t bring anyone who doesn’t want to shop as much or as little as you do. This includes your friends and significant other too. Bring someone who has the same goals as you, or go alone. Your experience will be a lot more fun and satisfying! You’ll get more done and won’t be distracted—plus, whoever is with you won’t be sitting around bored waiting for you.
Step Two: No question is a stupid question
Once in the store, find a sales associate and ask questions! Describe the items you like online, or better yet give her the exact style number. If you’re looking for a petite, tall, or plus-size section, ask where you can find it. Ask about current sales, promotions, and specials. Associates are trained to help you with these questions. They are there to help. They want you leave the store happy so you’ll want to come back.
Step Three: Seek Advice
This is definitely important if you are shopping alone or shopping with a too-nice friend. Different body types, skin tones, and hair styles look better in certain styles and not-so-good in others.
I’ve been applying for jobs for 3 weeks ever since I was laid off from my seasonal job at Sears and I was submitting application way before I was graduated from college. Out of the dozens of applications that I’ve sent off, I’ve only had 2 interviews. What’s wrong with my applications if I can’t even get interviews?! I’ve been applying through my college’s career services website with my resume and cover letter that has been approved and corrected by the school career center so I know those can’t be the issue. I feel like I’m stuck in limbo. Most jobs have left me feeling over qualified or under qualified…I know, I know I’m in the same boat as thousands of other college grads, but that doesn’t make the waiting process any easier. I’m not a patient person, you know. I was talking to a friend and it took her almost 9 months before she found a job. That’s a long time!!! At this point, I want to fall to my knees and beg employers for a job. It’s so hard to not take it personally, I’m a sensitive person, so each rejection email makes me feel like something is wrong with me. I know I need to hold on and not lose faith. Believe me, I’m trying my hardest. But for those who are graduating soon, be prepared, because I sure wasn’t.
