New City, New Job


Photo: Courtesy of ModCloth.com

I have some exciting news to share with you today! In last week's post about our big move, I alluded to a new job with a new company, many of you had some very close (if not entirely correct) guesses as to where I would be working: on Monday I began my new career with ModCloth as a blog & fashion writer! The words "Dream Job" do not do this justice, I'm so excited to be working with such an amazing company.

I've wanted to share this with you all so badly, and now I can! The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of interviews, apartment-hunting, saying our good-byes to New England, and getting settled in to our new home. I'm so happy to finally be here, and be grounded.

So, you may be wondering what does this mean for Orchid Grey? Things will stay roughly the same, but I will be taking advantage of our move and introducing some new topics (unrelated to my position). I've wanted to expand my repertoire for a long time, and now that we have a new place, with new space, I'll be able to! I will continue to have amazing sponsors on Orchid Grey, but ModCloth will no longer be one of them. Essentially, everything I do for my job will be completely separate from Orchid Grey, so if you'd like to keep up with me on ModCloth, you can definitely check out their blog.

If you have any questions, you can definitely ask me either on the Orchid Grey Facebook page, or below in the comments section!

And lastly, thank you all so much for being so patient with me over the past few weeks, I know posts have been scarce, but I'm so excited for what the future holds for Orchid Grey! Thank you all for your comments and words of encouragement (and recommendations on what to do in Pittsburgh!).
