Today I am linking up with Running With Spoons for Thinking Out Loud Thursday. Thank you Amanda for hosting this super fun link-up!
Friends! It has been a long time and I have much to tell you and, in sticking with the theme — it will be random!
I have a job — yay me! As most of you know, due to a relocation this summer, I have been without a full time job. Currently, I have been a freelance writer for the website Fashion Week and that has been a lot of fun and different than anything I have done before. In addition to that, I had explored several possibilities and finally landed a really great opportunity in a field that I am truly passionate about – Economic/Community Development and Marketing/Communications. I am thrilled and I start Monday!
Daylight Savings Time – I’m sure you are all aware that Daylight Savings Time ends on Saturday/Sunday. For some of us, this is viewed as a life-saver and for others, it messes up their sleep patterns and they are grumpy for the next 30 days. I, for one, love to fall back, to have an extra hour of sleep, for the sun to be nearly up when I go for a run. I am especially excited this year because it will be just in time for me to start my new job and new routine!
If you recall, I set a goal for myself this year to run 1000 miles by the end of 2015. If you don’t recall, you can check out my goals here. Right now, I am at 750 miles and the goal is within reach, but still quite far away. I got behind this summer with the move, logging only 73 miles in May and June. I am paying for those months now and the outlook is bleak. With my job starting next week, I am a little worried. Stay tuned on whether or not I can get those last 250 miles in the next two months!
My final random thought for today is to shamelessly talk about a new product that I LOVE!
I received two Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks from Influenster a month ago and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They are from the Rouge Pur Couture collection. The colors that I received are No. 19 Fuchsia and No. 9 Rose Pink. See my LinkedIn pic at left for a visual on the Rose Pink. Another fun fact, I wore it to my job interview! The fuchsia is super fun and I’ve been wearing it everywhere! See below:

The packaging is also super cool. It’s in the YSL iconic gold tubes — beautiful!
So that’s it! Those are my random thoughts of the day. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to visit the other blogs in the link-up!
Until Next Time,
