I'm Back!

It's been four months since my laptop broke and two months since my last update. Man, how time flies! So much has happened since South By Southwest. I don't even know where to begin.

I guess I'll begin in chronological order:

A week after SXSW, I started my new job at Liquidation Channel (LC). It's a home shopping network that specializes in jewelry. My job there as a scheduler is to basically to schedule the flow of product for live broadcast. I feel so incredibly lucky to have found such a wonderful job right after graduation, let alone within my field of study. If you've never heard of LC, I suggest checking them out: their assortment of product is amazing. I am always so tempted to buy everything!

One of the beautiful bangles LC carries.

Moving on: a month ago, in April, I turned 23. Maybe it's not really much of a milestone, but I always think of Bridget Fonda in the movie Singles
"Remember how old 23 felt when you were little? I mean, I thought people would be traveling in air locks and I'd have five kids. Here I am, 23. Things are...they're basically the same. I think time's running out to do something bizarre. Somewhere around 23, bizarre becomes immature."
 Bridget Fonda & Matt Dillon in Singles.

I could not have said it better myself, so thank you Cameron Crowe for that. Have I done anything bizarre as a 23-year-old yet?
Well, I did cut off about 15 inches of my hair two weeks ago...
It's so much easier to maintain, and it's perfect for summer.

I also got back together with the one-and-only guy I've ever blogged about. If you're a regular reader or close friend, you're probably thinking, "What?!" It is still very new, and one of those things that I can't really explain. It just sort of happened. It's also long-distance, due to the fact John's in the Air Force now, both of which I don't have any experience with. At all.
But the important thing is I'm happy, and we're making it work.

Speaking of making things work, I still don't have a car. I've determined that this affects how much I can actually blog about, at least in terms of street style. So expect some changes around Bella Vogue--more on personal style and trends in general. I've been doing a lot of DIY projects, thanks to Pinterest, so maybe I'll post a tutorial or two.

Are you on Pinterest? If so, leave your handle in the comments!
Mine is--what else?--thatchelseagirl.
If you want to keep in touch on Facebook, Bella Vogue is on there, too.

Until next time, which I promise won't be two months from now.
