Hello hello, long time no see again. I seriously need to stop saying I'll be posting more and then go on like a 2 week absence. But here I am...(I literally just had to delete the second half of this sentence because I unconsciously started typing lyrics to a one direction song haha...which goes to show I need more sleep after this long weekend I had haha but if you know the rest of the lyrics/which song I was about to type, you get an A+ for the day). Anyways, that was a long side note haha, but this weekend was Bridal Fashion week and it was a heck of a long weekend! This season, instead of helping Amsale out at their show, I went to the piers to help the bridesmaid division at their booth. So no pretty pictures of pretty dresses backstage this time :( This year, Amsale brought her bridesmaid line and a new cheaper line to the piers; and I still dressed the models for their buyers appointments. Oh gosh, wait till you hear about the dressing room....there were 2 models and then another intern and myself....the dressing room was literally the size of a closet. Which isn't that bad for a normal changing room if its just one person. But we had to fit 4 people in there and poof-y tulle dresses that basically took up the majority of the space on its own. I don't know how we made it work but we did!    
It was definitely an interesting weekend, filled with speedy dress changes in a matchbox and birds pooping on the dresses (And yes, you read that correctly haha since we were at the piers, there were a lot of birds flying around inside the warehouse. When we arrived Sunday morning for another day, we found that one of the dresses had bird poop on it. Luckily we were able to get it off but it was definitely funny how out of all the other vendors, the birds choose ours to poop on haha). 
So yea that was my weekend! Now I have a physics exam to cram for in 45 minutes! Wish me luck :P

Today was my first day of freedom, aka no interning, since January and it feels oh so good :P Not that I hate interning, but it's definitely a relief to have some of the stress lifted off my shoulders. As I said in my last post though, I'm starting a new...let's say adventure, and I really hope I can share with you guys asap!  

October is a day away so I think I am allowed to ask if anyone has started thinking of costumes yet? Shhh...but I've already been pinning ideas to a pinterest board all year :P Though the fall comes with the stress of school and a decrease in daylight; I am exuberant for the brisk air, changing leaves, and holiday season that's just around the corner! I know I'll be complaining soon about the brutal winter chill but for now I'll say that I'm ready to bundle up and cozy into sweaters again.
