All about Ditch the Clique…

All about Ditch the Clique…

I’ll never forget…

In 8th grade my math teacher asked us to write down our goal for the year. My classmates wrote things like “to get good grades”, “make new friends” and “to excel in sports” but I vividly remember writing “to make a positive difference in the life of one person” …and some goals never change.

Flash back four and a half years (it’s crazy to think it was that long ago!)- I was living abroad while studying at the UAL: London College of Fashion.

But in the meantime, I have put together a last minute, budget friendly Halloween costume for those who love to celebrate, but perpetually forgo costume prep until the day before (you know who you are).
