Getting Away with Sh*t

… aka the lessons I learned from Timothy Goodman. Wait who? And why? And why would you want to get away with anything?

I was probably the only person going into the presentation who had no idea who Timothy Goodman was. I chose to attend his presentation for a professional development portion for one of my classes.

The website said he was from New York City, so I knew it was going to be good. You know I haven’t gotten over NYC and it’s already been 4 years. Probably never will, but anyhow…

I looked him up on Twitter, and thought cool – he has a lot of followers. I had no idea what I signed myself up for. But in the end what it was and what I got out of it was so much more than I expected.

The presentation started with dick jokes, a lot of them, and they were quiet funny to be honest.

But then he mentioned a person who, when asked “What do you do for a living?”, said “Whatever I can get away with!”.

So how do you do that?

1. Know the rules
2. Have audacity
3. Don’t ask for permission
4. Listen to yourself
5. Get in your work
6. Stay young

In the end, finding my voice is what matters, even though reality and expectation don’t always line up.

So never stop making, because anything can be your canvas!

Sarah Jessica Parker on Shoes, Life and New York

Yesterday Nordstrom had a Twitter chat with Sarah Jessica Parker. I was lucky enough to have time during the day for this (you can see how straight my priorities are 😉 ) and got to ask one of my favorite celebrities a few questions, which she answered. What I really liked about this chat was how little self-promotion or brand-promotion SJP actually did. She mostly answered questions about her every day life, and as usual was inspirational and kind. So here is some everyday wisdom from @SJP in 140 characters or less:

Who is your favorite celebrity and what would you ask them if you had a chance?

Happy Friday!

Everyday Fashion From Around the World: Alya from Ukraine

Hey everyone, and I hope you are as excited to read this post as I am to write it! I love adding on to the Everyday Fashion From Around the World segment on my blog, and today’s blogger is Alya, she calls herself a beautyholic 🙂

One fine day she discovered herself in the world of beauty on YouTube, and just couldn’t give it up.

She now has her own channel, where she posts videos about make-up, hair, outfits, etc.

She’s lived in the city of Dnepropetrovsk in Ukraine her own life. Today she is going to share with us what an ordinary Ukrainian Big City girl would wear on an ordinary day. Dnepropetrovsk girls like to look pretty, but they are not extremely concerned about what they wear. Alya is no different. She likes skinny jeans and loose tops, or skirts and heels. But let the pictures speak for themselves.

Top: Pimke, Jeggins: Zara, Shoes: Bronx,  Purse: “a la” Zara

Dress: Incity, Unknown brand red belt, Shoes: Bershka

Jacket: Stradivarius, Dress: Incity, Unknown Brand shoes

Have a fabulous day,

Я надеюсь вы также рады этому посту как и я! Мне очень нравится добавлять новых девушек и их outfits в рубрику моего блога о повседневной моде со всего мира. Сегодняшняя девушка – Аля, бьюти-блогер из Украины, на ее наряды дня я набрела на Facebook, предложила выставить их в своем блоге, на что она согласилась! Но лучше об Але скажет только она сама:

Привет! Я – Аля, и я бьютиголик 🙂

В один прекрасный день я попала в увлекательный мир beauty community youtube и не смогла с ним расстаться…

И вот теперь я сама делаю видео и посты о покупках, макияжах, маникюрах, прическах, аутфитах 🙂
Всю сознательную и не очень жизнь  живу в центральной Украине, в городе Днепропетровске.
Сегодня мы рассмотрим, как одевается среднестатистическая жительница большого украинского города. В Днепропетровске девушки любят выглядеть красиво, но особо над тем, что одеть не заморачиваются, я как раз из таких. Люблю крайности – или джинсы (а кто из не любит?) и балахоноподобные кофты, или платья-юбки-каблуки. Что собственно и видно на фото.
на мне топ Pimke, джегинсы Zara, ботильены Bronx, сумка “под” Zara
не мне платье Incity, безымянный красный пояс и туфли Bershka
на мне куртка Stradivarius, платье Incity, и какие-то безымянные лаковые туфли
