As some of you may already know, I am headed to Philadelphia soon for my summer internship for Free People at home office. I will be shadowing the styling team and helping put together beautiful looks that will be shoppable online. 

What no one knows is that I am now leaving a month earlier than expected to start my internship early. Last week I received an email from one of the stylists asking me if I would be able to join them May 1st instead of June 1st; I of course said yes.

This freaked me out though considering I had a month to find a place to live and buy a plane ticket and pack for a 3.5 month adventure, but just like always, it fell into place. Alas, I have found a place to live for the summer and that is with five other interns in a beautiful old Victorian house not too far from head quarters. It is a five bedroom house (yes—that means two girls are sharing a room—no—I am not one of those girls), with two bathrooms, and a back yard. While I have my reservations living with so many people, I am seeing it as an adventure and could not be more thrilled to meet these girls. I am hoping that these young ladies will turn into some life-long friends. 

I could not be more excited for my summer away from Arizona and am a little nervous being so far from home, but as a bird must learn to fly, I must leave the nest.

I Am Back

Friday, March 20, 2015 / , ,

I am back and better than ever. 

Not having posted for awhile, let me remind you who I am. 

I am Kennedy Dawn Stearns. A 4'11, fiery 20 year old. 

I have gone through some changes, however. I have become re-inspired. I have taken some time to myself to relax, watch Netflix, and completely slack-off. My body and mind needed a break from the whirlwind of crazy that is my life and as a result I dropped off the face of the blogging world and dedicated all of my creative energy to working on my instagram (which is also going through some changes). 

I grew tired of the monotony of my posts. I grew tired of the one look I saw myself in. I wanted to do more. I wanted to become a person in your eyes. 

I have noticed on my instagram, many of my followers (which I have now reached over 50k) forget that I am real, that I am not just some social media face who doesn't see their comments. They forget that I can see their comments and I have to admit, not being thought of as a real person is a tough thing to go through. Comments can hurt and definitely extinguished the fire I had going for a while. 

But I am back. I am back every Friday morning. 

I know I used to be three times a week, but I know that right now I do not have the dedication to keep up with three blog posts every week; if I'm being honest, I may even have a hard time getting to one. 

But I'm here and I'm trying.
