#DianeCan --- #AlliWantForChristmas #Internship #FashionDesign


This Christmas what I really want is a fashion design internship for summer 2015.  This upcoming spring semester, I am studying abroad in Florence, Italy.  So before then I am asking Santa to help land me an internship.  So far I've interviewed with BCBGMAXAZRIA, Chico's, Ross, Forever 21, and more.  One of my fellow fashion friends now works for Oscar de La Renta (R.I.P), so maybe that's an option as well.  Upcoming soon, I am headed to my second round interview with Ross Stores for their product development internship.  They are flying me out to NYC next week for two days to do interviews and see their buying offices in midtown Manhattan.  Wish me luck, and if anyone runs into Santa, let him know I need an internship!  Happy Holidays.

Amanda's Poetry Hour -- You Are The Bobby To My Pins

Wake up to the lioness hair 
Look down to the iPhone glare
Sit down to the vanity chair 
Peek up to the devilish self stare

You are late.. Quit rhyming and grab the bobby pins to put up your hair!

# BreeBaresAll -- It's Christmas Time!

It's Christmas time again everyone!  Now I know while I am usually freaking out about now because it's finals time, this week I'm freaking out for a whole other reason.  The source of my worry right now is what I'm going to get all my loved ones!!

In my family, we draw names to do a sort of Secret Santa.  Of course this year I got one of the hardest people to buy for.  I have no idea what I am going to give them.  I love to give meaningful presents though, so I've got a lot of thinking to do about that.

Now what I'm really freaking out about is buying my boyfriend's mom a present.  I'm not trying to impress her or anything, I just really don't know what to get her...Did I mention this is the first boyfriend I've had in forever? So I feel totally clueless on all of this.

My friends are giving me advice but no one says the same thing.  I'll keep you posted on how it goes though!! be continued!  Oh!! I almost forgot!!

#DianeCan --- #AlliWantForChristmas

This Christmas all I want is some serious designer items.  If dreams came true and Santa didn't have a price cap, I would be receiving Christian Louboutin suede knee-high boots this Christmas along with designer mink scarves, a white cashmere blend coat and a House Check Burberry wallet. Other things I'm wishing for this Christmas are a new hairstyle and my first kiss under the mistletoe.   If I can wish for these fabulous things for Christmas, so can you!
Happy listing!

#WednesdaysWeWearBlak -- VS Fashion Show 2014

I think my friend said it best when they said .. I used to be upset about the VS Angels because I was unhappy with my own body, but now I am in love with my self image and in love with the show too! There is a lot of back and forth that happens about the models and how "perfect" they are. We all can get to a place where we love ourselves enough to be able to appreciate the physique of a models body. Personally I am obsessed with the show! I love the theatrics and the amazing designs of each outfit! It is really amazing what this show has done to elevate what could be a simple piece of underwear to and amazing concept and design! Bravo VS Fashion Show! Bravo VS Angels!

The Victoria Secret Angels are our winners this week for #WednesdaysWeWearBlak. Show us your blak outfits every wednesday for a chance to be posted on our blog and on our social media! Happy Blak Wednesday Everyone!

#AskAmandaDare -- Screw Perfection, Celebrate Your Selflove

Q: How can I become more comfortable in my own skin?

A: There is no perfect person or perfect body or perfect anything! So to begin being comfortable in your own skin you first have to say... 
"SCREW PERFECTION!!" Say it, no SCREAM IT for all to hear! 
This is a new dawn in humanity where everyone is "normal" because there is no "normal" anymore. So embrace it! Embrace Self Love! Embrace Y-O-U!

People often tell me that I have a lot of confidence. I don't disagree, but I think that my confidence stems solely from my own self love. And to be clear, I am now 25 years old..... I am not 13 going through puberty. I have gone through high school and college and am in a marriage. I have gone through a lot in my life and I have learned a lot of life lessons,
all of which I am comfortable opening up about so feel free to ask away for specifics. 
What I am trying to get at is that this self love did not come over time. It has taken me a long time to get to this point. But I think you may be able to get there a little quicker that I did.

#DianeCan -- Dressing Yourself in Neutrals

Everyone loves slimming black and popping colors, and the best way to combine the two is to add a beautiful medium... Neutrals!  Like black, neutral pieces are timeless and sensible for any occasion.  Ranging from blushes to nudes to tans, neutrals easily go with anything.  
Wearing a crazy outfit? ... Wear neutral shoes!
Can't match those new wild heels?... Neutral dress!
Feeling pale?... Throw on those neutrals!
#DianeCan wear match neutrals and you can too!
