October Kick Off

Happy October 1st! Eek!! This day is starting with me hopping on the DART train to commute to work for a 30 minute ride into downtown. Yesterday we gathered our things and headed over to the new office and of course I GOT LOST. Never fails! Stupid iPhone maps told me the address was in one spot when really it was off by not a street, but several blocks! Because I drove there, I ended up paying for parking twice because I wasn't sure I was in the right area.

It was just the icing on the cake especially with how I was hauling a big flat monitor for my desk in one arm and staring at my iPhone to give me all the answers in the other. I was so flustered, tired, sweaty and out of breath that I wanted to cry a few times, but I told myself to snap out of it. I seriously felt I was really thrown out of my element and I felt like a stranger in my own city. Guess that's gonna change soon since downtown will be my new territory to get to know.

When I finally arrived, my eyes were taking in the beautiful infrastructure of our building. We're not even in our suite yet so I don't exactly know what the actual space looks like, but so far I like it. I have always wanted to work in downtown and I finally have the chance. To think in two months I will also be a downtown Dallas resident makes me jump for joy like a Bieber fever fan.

I'm also excited to get to go to happy hours and actually not miss 'em because I will be in the center of it all! As a matter of fact, I got invited to a Ladies Night Tailgate party tomorrow that's not too far from the office and one of my friends is joining me since she lives in downtown. If you're also in the area, feel free to RSVP {here} and join us!

It will be a fun night with a DJ, beauty bar, photo booth, games, gift bags, and Smirnoff Ice cocktails! Plus, actress Melissa Rycroft will be hosting the event so I'm looking forward to meeting her.

So that's in a nutshell what's happening in Bella's world for October being kicked off like a football!! Tell me some confessions, pour your heart out, go on!!

Bella And The City

I'm a sucker for surprises and boy did I get quite the surprise last night when I was simply "googling" my blog and happened to find a feature of my blog on SMU's Fashion Media site that I had completely forgotten about. The girl who interviewed me never told me when it would be up so I didn't think she had published it until I pulled it up. Wow! Go read it {Bella And The City} and then come back to this post because it's a must read!! #justsayin

Even though it's been 5 months since I did the interview, to read it now it amazes me just how much my life has changed. For one, I'm no longer at that job they mentioned I was at {I Quit My Job}. Secondly, I'm about to move to downtown Dallas come November where I really will be Bella And The City. I really like the sound of that and may make that my next blog's name if I ever start dating in Dallas, ha! Not holding my breath on that one either. Lastly, haven't quite done much with Bellaesque and still unsure about what's ahead. May just change that one to 'Bella And The City' {hmm}.

This fall season so far has changed my life in more ways than I can count, but deep down I know that these changes were overdue and I'm glad things are going to be different. In 24 hours my work office will no longer be in the suburbs, but in the heart of downtown Dallas and I am so excited that October will already start with a big BANG. So long September and hey October! You good lookin' son of a gun!! God love ya.

Popped her Blog Cherry

Happy Monday! Just wanna get it out of the way, but I finished Season 4 of Dexter and holy guacamole! I can't believe the finale, I was shocked to where I couldn't even cry. So freakin' sad. Don't wanna spoil it for those of you who wanna see it, but if you've seen it then you know what I'm talking about.

Friday night my friend Ana and I went to Chipotle for a quick bite and then headed to the arts and crafts store. I really wanted to get some decor for my desk and ended up getting two beanie baby owls as well as an owl keychain. I also got two owl coffee mugs and a set of owl salt and pepper shakers. I love owls in case you didn't know that already. We watched Dexter when we came back to my place and it was a pretty good episode, hence why I'm so hooked on this damn show.

Saturday I slept in and was lounging until I decided to get out of the house and hang out with one of my new friends, Jessie. We went to Starbucks and since I had my laptop with me, started working on her new blog that she's been wanting to start for awhile. I even helped her come up with the name and I think it's perfect for her! Quinn for a Day.

I made her banner and I'm happy with how it turned out.

Then we made a stop at Target because I wanted to actually get desk accessories this time and I ended up getting this flower arrangement in fall colors that you see in the first pic above behind the owls. I guess this week I'll have to make another trip to another store and hope that I actually get what I came there for.

Sunday was fun day indeed because I finally got my nails and pedicure done. Watched some more Dexter and although I didn't take pics of my new nails, I'll be sure to Instagram them this week.

I actually heard from Rico, but I don't really have anything new to report so I will just leave it at that. It's gonna be interesting how this week may pan out now that he decided to get off his ass and contact me. I'm not holding my breath by any means either so don't worry about me. It's not gonna be easy for him this time to creep back into my heart, only to leave it shattered... learned that lesson!

Enough about me, how was your weekend?!

October Can't Come Fast Enough

Happy Friday friends! I am so stoked the weekend is here because my plans are to lay low and finish off Dexter as much as my eyes can handle in all its Netflix glory. I hope y'all have a great weekend ahead and I am so excited my birthday month is only 4 days away.

October is gonna be insane because birthdays, concert, new office, new commute to work {by train}, Halloween, Texas state fair, team events around Dallas, my birthday; it's a big ball of so many events and I can't wait to start rolling it.

What are you looking forward to this fall?
