I Count It All As Loss.

Bib Necklace: Cato.

Lipstick in MAC's Russian Red.

Hello there all! ♥

I wanted to sincerely thank you all for all of the words of encouragement and advice on my last post! It was very helpful to know that I'm not alone and that the way I'm feeling isn't 'weird' in the least bit. Thank you for your comfort and support you always give me. It has been awhile since I had a more personal post and I was nervous posting it. You all eased my heart! x

Well, this morning was another floor set for Aero! I woke up well before the world was alive and worked until noon displaying new merchandise and reorganizing the store around. It is literally the best job and I am so thankful for it. Being able to explore visual merchandising first hand has made me think about perhaps that being the path I want to turn to after I get my degree. I just love all of the detailing about why merchandise is displayed the way it is, why colors are chosen, why things sell the way they do certain places, ect. There is so much to think about and I find it fascinating. Think about that next time you go into a clothing store how much work and thought went into that display!

Hope you all are GREAT! I am tired from today but really well. I took a long, soothing bath tonight to ease my sore body with my last Lush bath bomb and it turned my bath bright pink + had little paper hearts floating around in my bath. Can't wait to get more ♥ ♥ ♥

With much love, Lauren.

Visual merchandizing is a really neat field! A good friend is a VM for all the Zara's in Toronto, and they love it. Every day feels like an art project to them. Sounds like a great fit for you!

I agree with Anne, absolutely stunning. You're looking (very healthily) slender, too ;-)

I just want to tell you that I LOVE your hairstyle in this post; you should really make a tutorial or at least link to where I can learn how to do this! <3

Visual merchandising is so much fun! I had to take a class about it, and it's so interesting! Glad you enjoy it.

Visual Merchandising is so much fun! I used to work at JCPenney and I was on the visual merchandise team, it was my favorite part of the job! I love your hair today :)

I'm so glad you where brave enough to post what you did yesterday :). Turns out you aren't the only one I saw this post http://networkedblogs.com/MWGj7 tonight by Rebecca of the Clothes Horse with regards to dating or not as the case is when other people are. I have no doubt you will have some across it on your own but just in case.

I seriously cannot wait until my hair is long enough to do a hairstyle like yours :)

This dress is so flattering on you!

Surely loving another person requires courage and strength, for only the strong survive when love takes leave of us through rejection, death or dementia. However, love does not ever, and never will leave us empty handed with a total loss. Instead we are left with far more than we came to it with, and in the end we are far better people for merely having been granted the gift.

Remember in the story, Noah technically won and inevitably lost love, but never stopped believing in it's mystical power to come back.

It's never ever a total loss.

Your dress is very pretty!
