I’ve been sharing my life through Beyond This Fence for two years now – all 168 posts with 20,000 views – sharing my monthly favorites, travels, thrifting hauls, and more!
Today I’m sharing my essential shoes!
I’m not afraid to admit that I’ve accumulated many pairs of shoes over the years! Each pair is purchased with a specific purpose, or maybe the deal was too good to pass up🌞 I’m obsessed with every pair I have – no shoe goes unworn!
It has been a few months since I’ve sat down and took the time to think about who I am and who I’m becoming. I get overwhelmed at the idea of my future and having some type of “plan.” I sit here, working a full-time schedule (split between my two jobs), balancing friends and family, spending time on my blog, just wishing it could all be easier.
Hello & happy Thursday! <– I think that’s my new intro! 🌞
I had a half day at work earlier this week, so I headed on over to Savers. I realized that I needed a few business casual shirts for my new job, so I thought I would try my hand at thrifting them. I got lucky this time & I’m really excited about what I got. I can wear them to work, or dress them down to be more casual, which is my favorite part of thrifting – the versatility of the pieces!
On some mornings, I start work at 6:00am or 8:00am & I need a quick breakfast to get me going! I find that a smoothie is the most time efficient thing to make. My NutriBullet gets the job done in less than a minute, blending up the perfect serving size! Here’s how I make my favorite smoothie. Continue reading “My Go-To Morning Smoothie”

Hello & happy Thursday! 🌞
I am back with some monthly favorites – B.L.O.O.M (Beauty, Literature, Obsessions, Outfits, + Music). Continue reading “B.L.O.O.M : May/June 2018”
I’ve talked about my job search on the blog and on my Instagram page. It’s been quite the experience and the job hunt is still happening. I had an interview about a week ago and it was truly unique.
I luckily got a phone interview with one of the companies I recently applied to. It was about 40 minutes long, and it went quite well. The women I spoke with set up an in-person interview for a week later. She sent me an email with location information, and attached a file for a required PRESENTATION that I had to create for this interview. My initial reaction was to panic, call my dad, and tell him that I just couldn’t do it. I was overwhelmed by the thought of talking about myself in front of 2-3 people who are there to make sure I’m qualified enough for the job.
I decided that the presentation was something I had to do. No matter how nervous I felt, this was the experience that I needed. Even if I don’t get the job, I’m always satisfied with the skill and confidence I gain with each interview.
If you’re currently going through the same process as I am – applying and interviewing for jobs – remember to take a deep breath and put your best foot forward. The idea of interviewing is daunting, but once it’s over, you’ll be extremely proud you did it!
Tips For Interviews :
- Research the company & write down the key points of their mission statements
- Bring a few copies of resume, cover letter, and your transcript (if you’re a recent graduate)
- Never chew gum during an interview
- Introduce yourself, greet with a strong handshake, and always thank them for their time
- Follow up!!! This shows them that you’re excited to hear back from them & move forward in the interviewing process
I hope some of these tips helped! Thanks for reading.
