Although summer isn’t technically over until late September, with back to school underway (thank goodness that part of my life is over) and fall clothing starting to hit stores (oddly enough, I’ve seen some stores already gearing up for Halloween), it seems like my “carefree summer days” are coming to an end. Since I graduated college over a year ago (shoutout to the class of 2014), summers aren’t exactly like they were when I was a kid. When I was in school, summer was basically a two and a half month ‘responsibility break.’ I didn’t have to worry about things like homework, studying or tests. Even when I had a summer job and internships, there was still a careful feeling to summer. Since I’m no longer in school and am working full time, summers are more or less like every other season but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy all the fun things associated with it! For me, summer is all about BBQ’s, hanging out with friends, music festivals, traveling (I’m so excited to be heading to DC THIS WEEK and Disney World next week) and of course, spending countless hours at the beach!
I don’t know why but for some reason I’ve been BURSTING with ideas lately! I have a ‘blog journal’ (it’s Rifle Paper Co. of course) where I keep all my ideas for future blog posts and I’ve noticed that I have about 12 ideas piling up right now! That’s why I’ve decided to blog EVERYDAY this week! That’s right, everyday (I usually only post 3 times a week, so this is going to be interesting!) If you read yesterday’s ‘Must Have‘ post, you know that my mom’s lost purse was recently returned to her! It’s so amazing to know first hand that there are good & honest people in the world! In the spirit of paying it forward, I’ve teamed up with a few of my favorite bloggers to bring you guys another AMAZING giveaway! Up for grabs is a $750 Amazon Gift Card (boy does that sound great right about now) for one of our lucky readers (and it could be YOU!) Want a chance to be the lucky winner?

Today (well, tonight) I’m heading to New York City! I’m so excited because I haven’t been to NYC in almost 7 months! It’s weird, because I’ve been to NYC about seven or eight times but I’ve never done the ‘tourist’ stuff! I’ve never been to the Empire State Building, visited any museums or even come close to seeing the Statue of Liberty. Now, thanks my pals at City Pass, that’s all about to change! I get to finally experience a true ‘New York Vacation.” While I’m in NYC, I’ll also be attending New York Comic Con and I’m so excited! I can’t wait for the Birdman Panel (and several other exciting panels) and all the cool Funko exclusives! I have a press pass to NYCC so I’ve been getting all these fun ‘press’ emails and invitations to certain events (it’s so exciting) and have even be asked to do a couple interviews!
In other exciting news, Simply Sinova’s Facebook page hit 2,500 likes this week! To celebrate, my blogger friends and I have come together to bring you another AMAZING giveaway!

Happy Thursday everyone! These past few months have been filled with nothing but great news, exciting opportunities, new adventures and amazing collaborations/projects. I would have never in a million years thought that post-grad life could be this amazing!
There are so many great things coming up for Simply Sinova (and me personally) these next few months! I’m currently working with a bunch of amazing bloggers on an exciting new project that is set to launch this September. I’ve also been working hard on Simply Sinova’s branding and adding new elements to the blog. So far I really haven’t focused on food that much but don’t worry, that will change soon because I have two awesome food collaborations coming up! I’m also steering Simply Sinova into the music/travel blog direction! I have some great concert and music reviews coming up soon as well as some great trips and travel plans I can’t wait to share!
To celebrate all the great news and this new direction Simply Sinova is taking, I’ve decided to do something special for all my lovely readers!
