This blog has helped me open up a little more, though. And I have to thank you all for always being so sweet and encouraging! I do not know most of you in person and still feel you so close! You make me feel it's ok to throw a rant every now and then and what's more, you're there to offer your support, ideas and time; that is priceless to me and for that I'll be forever grateful.
It's amazing how being hopeful and happy has kept me "on the right track" so effortlessly. I've eating more healthily than ever (although, yes, I might have had a beer or two, hehe), I've been constant with my work-out routine, overall I've been feeling way better about myself, which, let me tell you, does not happen frequently. I feel positive and filled with great energy; and I do believe that a positive attitude brings even more positivity :).
Anyway, let me show you some pictures from the weekend so this post is not just jibber-jabber.
I really wanted to buy a blazer to wear the day of my interview. I think a simple black blazer is a must-have in every woman's closet and it's been too long since I last wore one! After some thorough online research, I decided that Forever XXI was the store to go. And I wasn't mistaken; I'm so glad we took a trip there! I tried on 3 or 4 different blazers and decided to bring this one home at the reasonable price of $27.90.
Erm, I couldn't help noticing that a lot of their inventory was on sale (50% off of the already reduced price!), so I tried a couple of other things I had not planned to buy. I ended up getting this cute skirt for $4, a make-up brush set for 50 cents and pink blush for $1.50. I'm very happy with my purchases :p.
This week I made the decision of quitting Coke. I truly believe I'm addicted to diet Coke :/. I know it's not good for my body plus it's a waste of money, so there was not much to put on the scale; I should've quit a long time ago! I do drink a lot of water every day and enjoy tea and coffee, but I also need to spoil myself with some sweet cold beverage, so I'm trying different powder juices. I usually get Crystal Light's mojito mix (non-alcoholic, obviously!), but they were out, so I chose their peach/mango green tea mix; I really like it.
I'm still trying to get the hang of the sewing machine. I'd never thought it was going to be easy, but I think I'm even worse at it than I'd expected, haha. I won't give up, though! I got frustrated because it kept making a mess of the thread, but of course, there was a reason for such mess and I was the only one to blame. I think I might now be able to start actually sewing little things :).
OK, guys, I'll wrap up this post here. If you have any tips about job interviews, would you please share them with me? I'd love to hear them! ;D
Thank you for reading and for being there. Know that you are very much appreciated!
