Life. Now.

You know what? 
God really has a way of working out even the smallest of thoughts/wants/needs. It is no secret that my life has changed drastically in the last year. I have made so many changes; I have been working on my physical appearance as well as doing some heavy work on my heart and made some major career moves. It is safe to say that I am nowhere close to the girl that I was a year ago. I never thought that I could be this care free, confident and dare I say it...HAPPY!!!

 The beach is my happy place and where I go to think and clear my head.
 Sometimes you have to listen to your heart. In matters of LIFE and LOVE!

Well my Summer of Fun is slowly coming to an end (NOOO!!! I am SO sad about it) and I have spent some of my free time trying to figure out what the next step is for me career wise. I have been very fortunate to have the job that I have had for the last 8 months. It has given me so much freedom to actually LIVE life, work under someone who is fun and carefree and it's been perfect as I have transitioned into becoming who I want to be. I am not leaving this job, although I know it is not what I want to do forever, but I will be adding something else to my work load. I was hired on as a Project Manager for Pollinate Media Group. I will be working with Bloggers to market campaigns for some amazing clients! I get to work in Social Media, utilize my managerial skills and work with talented and creative people to help grow a new company. It is exactly what I want to be doing and where I see myself growing and developing my new career. It was a big decision for me to leave my career in Fashion and it was an even bigger decision to not pursue a career in Fashion after I took my hiatus. Blogging and Social Media gives me an outlet to stay tapped into the Fashion Industry and not completely abandon my love for Fashion. Social Media is where my heart lies at the moment and I am Thankful to begin this new position doing something that I love!

 The Announcement <3

I know that a lot of you (my readers) are bloggers so I want to urge you to check out Pollinate's website and apply to be a part of the community! All of the Fashion and Personal Style bloggers need to represent our niche in the Blogging community! Please feel free to email me with any questions and I will make sure to get the answers for you!

I am still going to be somewhat MIA for the next few weeks as I get back into a routine after all of my travels, train for this new position, continue my insane work out/fitness regime and date the new guy in my life. I do have some AWESOME Guest Bloggers scheduled to share with you all so I hope that you will continue to check back and give them some love. I will have a Fashionista Fitness post up within the next week (focusing on body image and changes that occur that you cannot prepare for) along with a review and an outfit post (what? I forgot I was a personal style blogger for a minute. Haha) and MAYBE have a Flirty Thirty post up before month end. It sounds a bit ambitious but I am hoping to not disappoint!

 I LOVE this picture.

 How I spent my weekend...Loving up on my Nephew and Niece!!

The best way to see what I am up to is to follow my Instagram feed (@FashionistaMMC) or connect with me on Twitter (@FashionistaMMC). I love having those two outlets to really stay up to date and talk in the moment.

I hope that you have a GREAT week!
