AND AWAY SHE GOES…

Soooooooooo it’s finally time for my depart to the lovely city of Shanghai, China!!!!

 Wow…this is really going to be a life changer and there are a million thoughts going through my head. Will I be financially sound? Do I really have to go EVERYWHERE with someone? Is it like NY? Are there any cute men who love chocolate? (lols) What is the art scene and club scene like? Will I meet some really quality friends while I’m over there like I have here?

 I’m sure I will be okay, but my main goal when I get to China…is to LIVE. I mean REALLY LIVE!!! I want find any missing parts of myself, abandon old bad habits, and fall in love with my craft again.

 I mean this is F**king China!!!! The Mecca of clothing manufacturing. The networking possibilities are unlimited… and I heard so are the men!!!(haha)

But, I simply want to be inspired… to BE.

 To be satisfied with who I am and where I am in life…

To be even more confident in myself as a fashion designer…

To be a better person holistically…

To be in tune with where I am headed in life…

Tommorow I will be departing for Atlanta, where I will be flying off from the Atlanta International Airport to Pudong International Airport. My plane leaves Friday morning and arrives Saturday afternoon.

 OMG…this is really happening and it feels like it’s the right time for a real change and I think I’m ready for it! I have amazing support from my mother and close friends, which I appreciate sooooooo much!!!

Okay…I guess I’m really about to do this!! Wish me well and I will talk to you on the other side!!!!

Smooches!!!

PARIS OF THE EAST….

YOOOO…I recently found out that Shanghai is called the “Paris of the East” (screams) You have to admit… That is soooooo SEXY!!! It makes me more ready to fall in love with the culture once I reach there.

Well..it’s 32 days before I take off for Shanghai, China. Right now I’m keeping myself busy with a variety of creative personal projects including creating a masterpiece of a prom dress for my niece and re-vamping my Fashion portfolio. I am also in the process of figuring foreign currency exchange rates and services for by journey abroad, which is such a hassle at this point. Though I am thankful for my newly found knowledge of International Finance from my major class, because if I never took that class I would be completely lost in this process.

Anyways… I am slowly becoming less terrified of my journey to China because of my very supportive friends who give me nothing but amazing advice and strength. I am also slowly getting my wardrobe ready for the International Fashion Arena that is Shanghai!…WISH ME LUCK!!!

P.S. Here is a little inspiration that keeps me dreaming of Shanghai….
