This past week has been a stressful, yet fun week. I had an accounting test on Thursday that I think I bombed on :( But I'm trying not to freak out, and just take it one step at a time.
In my leadership academy, we have had some amazing opportunities to learn about various businesses, and to become exposed to leaders around the country. This Wednsday some of my cohort was given the opportunity to tour the JcPenney Home Office located in Plano, Texas. I was fortunate to go. It is an amazing building! I wish I could have taken more pictures, but I didn't want to run around snapping pictures you know.... it didn't seem all that professional to me :) Oh well, next time I suppose. This is the makeup I wore to the JcPenney tour. I wanted to keep in professional, so it's my everyday look, with some Typographic e/s on the bottom lashline to smokey it up a bit. This was before I got a huge migraine. In my later pictures, my head hurt like WHOA, which is why I looked all washed out. My migraine was one of the reasons I bombed on my accounting test. I was indisposed when I got home due to it, so I couldn't concentrate and ended up falling asleep at 9pm. I HATE migraines!!!!!!! It was chilly that day so finally I got to bring out my pashminas!
We met with the Executive Vice President of HR, and we sat at a huge room that was used for the board of directors meetings. It was so impressive! The room was huge with floor to ceiling windows on one side. In front of each seat was a small rectangular box that we later found out was a microphone. The speakers were in the ceiling so where ever a person was talking, you could hear it. The EVP was so kind and helpful. I was able to ask him about what he looks for in interns. He said he looked for breadth, meaning a student wasn't just sticking with the staight and narrow, but was reaching out into various activities, more than what was expected. He gave a lot of great insight on leadership as well, and I was surprised at how kind he was, since I always thought corporate big shots would be pompous.
We then went on a tour of the facility, which was amazing. Everything looked so posh and professional. I loved it :) Anyways, I was able to snap a few pictures. This one is the JCP initals cut into some shrubbery. The first one was taken from the vantage point of the board room, and the second was from the downstairs.
This is the whole group that went to the JcPenney tour. We were taking a picture in front of Mr. Penney's statue, but he got cut off in this one. The group was a mixture of the junior cohort and senior cohort, with a few liberal arts majors who came along.
I wanted to get a picture of just the junior cohort so here we are :)
This was supposed to be our "silly/random" picture, but it didn't turn out that way :)
Today I was really lazy to put on makeup. Sometimes you need a day off, you know :) I ran out of time to do my makeup since I tried out Lyna's Teasing Hair Video which you can find on her blog. I still have to practice, but my mediocre results were better than my normally flat hair, so thank you Lyna!!
Y'all should know that everything I wear is MAC unless otherwise stated... so I'll just assume y'all know from now on, so I don't have to repeat this over and over and over :P
What I'm wearing:
Fast Response Eye Cream
Armani Micro-fil Powder
Jealous Kohl Power Pencil - It smudged a lot on my right eye because that eye has been folding a lot recently for some odd reason. I'm really trying to like it, I am! I don't want to waste all 4 Kohl Powers I have :(
Shiseido Mascara Base
Shiseido Lifting Mascara
Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm
I bought these new shoes last week that I never got around to take a picture of. I got them at DSW, and I love the animal print detail. It looks like it's a zebra trying to be a leopard, and y'all should know by now that I LOVE leopard print :) And it has a cute satin bow detail on it, LOVE it too! And I finally dug up one of my fave sweaters. It's an oversized sweater I bought at the GAP for like $5 last year. It was too large, but there's something about slim pants and top with a baggy sweater on top that allures me. I don't know, maybe I'm a weirdo, but oh well!
Then at around 4pm, I had to attend a reception for a guest speaker, Dr. Stacy Blake-Beard who is an expert on mentoring. She is an associate professor for the only USA-based women's only business school, the only other in the world is located I believe in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (thank you for the clarification! :D). She was such a sweet lady, and gave a lot of amazing insight on mentorship, as well as information on pursuing a graduate degree. I plan on getting my MBA so I was uber excited about her information. She was nice enough to take a picture with a few of my fellow junior cohort. I only added some Family Silver MES and a bit of Typographic to smoke it up. My hair looked a fright since I tried to fix it *shrugs*
Anyways, I have to study for a marketing exam on Monday. I plan on taping my McQueen tut tomorrow, as well as either my Q&A video or top products video. We'll see, but I'll be sure to let y'all know about it! Have a great night!
Peace *chunks up the deuces* (if only y'all could see it hehehe)
