Best Flats for Business and Class

The Brickyard at NC State shows no mercy on ladies wearing stilettos, especially on rainy days. Even the brick walkway in front of Nelson almost got me on the first day of Global Luxury Management boot camp. So take my advice and stash these flats in your bag to make getting around on foot a breeze!

NC State Global Luxury Management Summer Reading Review

My acceptance into grad school came with a summer reading list comprised of several digital PDF articles and three books. In light of orientation beginning tomorrow, I hopped on Periscope for a few minutes to share the books and my take on them, as well as to suggest two articles for further reading in the August 2015 issue of ELLE magazine.

If you didn’t get a chance to watch the live stream on Periscope, I’ve archived the review on YouTube. Check it out below or click to view if you have trouble with the embedded video below.

Thanks for tuning in! I’m excited to jump in tomorrow and will be sharing some of my first-week experiences on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtags #NCStateGLM and #EverydayLuxe, so follow along on social – I’m @NCSULilWolf on both Twitter and Instagram.

Back to School

Think this is a post about sending a mini off to elementary school? Not so much. It’s me who is heading back to school!

NC State Global Luxury Management Master's Degree Program
NC State Global Luxury Management Master’s Degree Program

This fall (as in, starting next week!), I’ll be back at NCSU to get my master’s degree in Global Luxury Management – it’s a full-time program, but I’ll be maintaining my consultancy, Raleighwood Media Group + Raleighwood Event Group, while pursuing this one-year degree. I’m so excited about being back on campus. It’s just a different place than the business world. There are great minds there gushing with creativity. Compared to some my class peers (42 students representing five different countries), I’ve got the benefit of having been on campus in undergrad, so I’m already very familiar with campus and NC State in general.

I thought about setting up yet another blog to chronicle my experience in the NCSU GLM program, but instead, I’m opting to pay more attention to this site instead and I’ll tag posts related to grad school with NCSU GLM and Everyday Luxe. I’ve also purchased the domain that’ll take visitors directly to that content.

Stay tuned, y’all!
