BOUNCING BACK TO NEW YORK TONIGHT @Bounce21NYC | In Memory of NY in November

Graduation @WaldenU

Wow, what a feat. After all these years, I’ve finally finished college with a Bachelor of Science in Communications.

As I struggled through the quarters, managing my social, professional and student life, it was apparent that I was almost finishing and it would be too late to quit.

Several, MANY years ago, I realized there wasn’t anything I’ve ever accomplished.

I played the piano for 10 years, played the violin and the flute but didn’t do it enough to stick. I figure skated, but only got to an axle jump. I’ve tried out different jobs, but after two years, I’d quit. I got married and decided to get a divorce…the story goes on.

I knew that I had to graduate college not only for my mom, family, Tyler (especially), but REALLY, for me.

This would be my first accomplishment in life. Hoping that this is a jump start to accomplishing many other things in life.

I always felt insecure about not having a degree, people would ask where I went to school and I would feel dumb for saying I didn’t and trying to justify why. Usually I’d blame my early marriage, but we all know the issue was the fact that I couldn’t get it done.

Now of course, no one asks where I went to school. 😛 But it’s okay, I feel confident, fearless and most of all proud.

Though my mom didn’t really seem that excited for me, all these years she would tell me to finish school and I’d just reply, “I am.” I think the whole online concept was weird for her. She quite didn’t understand the online university and I wasn’t about to explain how now. (Do you know how frustrating it is to show her things on her smartphone?)

Anyway, I am blessed to have been given the time and opportunity to finish my studies.

Now I just need to payoff my school loans. :/

Bear? Where are you?

#LAArtShow #LAAS2017 #DTLA

LA Art Show is always a great idea. One time out of the year where we get to experience and feel things we don’t typically see.

I love art, pop art especially. This year, there were so many amazing pieces that I wanted to take home with me. My favorite being the bear made of what looked like marbles. Little metallic balls joined to create a little teddy. Light as a feather too!

Our company hosts the VIP area and we get to go… what a fun night!

@OnTheRiseLondon #MustHave

I saw this jacket on Ladies of London. Although her’s (forgot the American lady’s name that had it on) had the patch on the back as well, I’m still overjoyed about my new varsity jacket! 

They have red, blue and gray… in UK sizes. I ordered the small which I believe was 8-10, however my Asian arms are a bit short for it. Still, I’m over the moon about the quality, customer service and expedited service!

This jacket was about $80 + shipping from across the world and I can’t wait to wear it out in public. 

It’s perfect for my closet because I LOVE gray and I love personalized, one of a kind pieces!

Make sure you order yours right MEOW!

Let them know Violet sent you!

Out With the Old, In With the New @ABHcosmetics

I’ve using this forever. Some girl that I’m not friends with anymore got me a brow kit from Anastasia a while back. I never used it until I realized I could use it for my lash extensions.

I ran out finally and ended up buying two for the future. This is the best for eyelashes, it’s gooey and it holds it in place. I put it on after the shower and after I wash my face.

@MarieNails #ValentineNails

I’m not one to be super festive… but I really wanted red nails. This time around I did all all over red glitter except for my index fingers. I added 3D gems to the solid red on the index…

I love the red!

Goodies! Thank You @BurgerIncNYC!

My visit to Burger Inc NYC on my last trip was so memorable.

Is it possible to miss food more than people? I find myself craving and missing this burger on a daily basis. I wake up and think about eating it. The juiciness of the patty, freshness of the veggies, crunchiness of the tots and fries, gooeyness of everything else.

Oh I love burgers, I need to go back to NY stat.
