Letter From the Editor: For the Love of Sweaters

IMG_0451

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

This week on the blog has been very warm and cozy, and I am thankful for that because it has only gotten colder and windier here in Appalachia *wink* So, needless to say, I have a feeling I will begin layering more with sweaters soon…then layering more with coats….Where are my hats?!? Where are my gloves?!? 

Check out this fabulous sweater poncho I wore this week to WCYB News station with some of my fellow broadcasting majors. Not only was this an EPIC experience, I was also warm for the whole trip *wink*

“I like sweaters. I have a sweater obsession, I guess.”

–Drake

I think Drake and I are on the same page with our sweater obsessions, I guess *wink* So, with that…let’s jam out to a song Vine parodies have virtually ruined for me. *fist in air* HOTLINE BLING. *cue cheesy dancing*
