I started a new moonlighting gig this week. It’s nothing fancy, just a regular ol’ retail job. But I’m so happy about it, I had to tell ya! I’m working as a part-time stylist at the Free People store in, where else, the MALL of AMERICA. After breaking up with my main freelance client, and a dream of a new kitchen thisclose to reality, I knew I had to pick up some extra cash somehow, and it had to be earned in a way that didn’t involve sitting in front of a screen. It’s pure serendipity I met the woman who hired me the same day I read this article on beating on-the-job burnout. Sometimes life works out nicely that way.
The store itself is full of beautiful clothes and thoughtful details, two things that totally soothe my soul. My first official day was yesterday, and I forgot how exhausting it is to be the new girl with not a clue what’s going on. Fortunately, the staff seems to be comprised of 100-percent sweethearts. If you’re in the area, come pay us a visit and let me hook you up with cute stuff! And be sure to give the store a follow on Instagram. (It’s an extra-pretty account.)
