Team Lindsay !!

by hopelesslyambitiousv

Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay. What happened to you? You used to be that sweet young lady who captured America’s heart and proved she could hold her own, acting chops wise, along side Denis Quaid, the late Natasha Richardson, and Jamie Lee Curtis. Now look at you, charge after charge, trail after trail, mug shot after mug shot, you just can’t seem to catch a break can ya?

Believe it or not, unlike those other bloggers out there, I’m not here to bash you and hide behind my keyboard. In fact, I’m on your side. You’ve been through hell & back and through it all I’ve always rooted for you and hoped you would make a killer comeback and silence all the haters.

It’s really unfair how the media works. Why are they so understanding and quick to forgive some, and then turn around and give others hell for making the same exact mistakes?  Does anyone remember all the hell Drew Barrymore raise when she was young? Or Robert Downy Jr.’s PR nightmares? What these celebs have in common is the fact that they fell off for a little while and were able to make a comeback. I think the media is being very unfair to Lindsay, and she’s not getting a chance to restore her image and get back to making movies again.

Call me crazy but I’m officially declaring this blog Team Lindsay despite what any of the haters have to say about it! I’m partial to Lindsay because I grew up in the 90s right as she was making her claim to fame, and beginning her world domination. That’s the Lindsay I love and remember.

I mean, give the girl a chance, she’s clearly making an effort to restore herself and get back to the way she used to be. She has even made visible step in the right direction by going back to her famous red hair. And as far as the whole Elizabeth Taylor T.V movie goes, I think Lindsay will nail it !! What celebrity is without a little past scandal?

I am the Social Network ..

by hopelesslyambitiousv

In an effort to make my personal brand more marketable and desirable to companies in PR in the fashion industry, I have literally joined every social networking website out. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, you name it, I’ve got it!

 Follow me on  Tumblr, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram (@hopelessly_v)

I am not crazy or anything and I’m well aware that studies have shown that the more presence we have on social media, the more problems like chronic loneliness we develop. However, I’ve recently started applying to “big girl” jobs for right after I receive my bachelors degree in May, and I came across this wonderful opportunity of Merchandising Associate at  Condé Nast. I researched the requirements of this position and it entails 2 years of relevent writing experience and social media experience. This would be the ideal foot in the door job for me :). I already have the writing and social media experience from my internship and personal hobbies, but I realized the more familiar I am with the future of Marketing/PR, the better off I am.

Btw, I found out about this job via Twitter! I follow all kinds of job boards and company career Twitter pages. The world has changed. What once took the right family insider connection to learn about new job opportunities, has now been replaced by the internet’s social networking.

Ask me what my plans for the future are and I’ll tell you I plan to stay current!

The Future is Always in Fashion ..

by hopelesslyambitiousv

Hello World, I’m back once again returning from another long, unplanned, hiatus.

Now that I’m here I’d like to talk about the future. The future? Yes, the future. Because like it or not, it’s approaching fast and creeping the hell up on me faster than I can really prepare. For instance, just the other day I received my official graduation cap & gown. It’s so bizarre to me that graduation, the cultivation of my four years in college, is 29 days away. OMG!!

I’ve come along way in the last 4 years. Everything is so much more refined for me then it used to be. When I started college I still had no idea what I wanted to be, what I wanted to do, who I would eventually be. I narrowed everything down, followed my heart, and as cliché as it sounds I found myself. Deep down inside I think I’ve always known, but was way too timid to really just come out and say it.

I want to be a fashion publicist, a PR girl if you will. I want to wake  up every morning and take my love of contemporary  fashion and do behind the scenes marketing and promotions. I’m not sure if I ever got around to discussing just what the ambition was behind the name Hopelessly Ambitious V, and now that I finally have, I can let out this sigh of relief.

The future is no longer just coming, it’s here, and I plan on embracing the hell out of it!! 🙂
