I’m not sure if any of you have ever seen the show Fashion Star, but it’s pretty interesting. I was flipping through the channels last Friday night due to 1) Boredom & 2) lack of brain activity due to finals.

I’ve been away for the past few months blogging on sharkmates, but I’ll be transitioning back to this blog for the time being. Hopefully things will be settling down as I get ready to graduate (!!!) and i’ll have more free time to blog about some of my favorite things: marketing, life, TV, etc. Check back in the next few days/weeks/months for new posts!
