Fall Resolutions

I am an official blog slacker!!

Today at work I finally got the blog bug again, something that I have not had for a long time.

I apologize for the LONG absence,
(emphasize when reading the word long)

It is my favorite season!

I love fall........

The bright colors

the stormy weather

Carving pumpkins

This lovely drink


the fall fashion

In honor of my favorite season,
this weekend I have made a few new "fall resolutions"

1-Training begins: I have taken a month and a half off. I went from running 23-26 miles a week to 10-15 a week (if I am lucky). The new running season is around the corner, and the lotteries for races are about to begin. So I made myself a new schedule and it starts on Monday.

2-Long hair: I have made a commitment to grow my hair out again. Sorry not a very flattering picture, I am at work so my picture selection is limited. I have also made a resolution that when my hair is long, I will do it more often, rather than rely on the oh-so-convenient ponytail.

3.Catch up on all my reading: This is a tough one, but something that must be done. Midterms were last week, and although I passed all of them, none of the scores will be bragged about. So to get the grades that I am hoping, I must re-commit myself to school this semester.

4.Spend more time on the important things: Why is it that the most important things fall so easily to the bottom of the list? I am reorganizing myself to spend time each day reading my scriptures, or anything spiritual. I hate how easily I tend to let these things slide.

I love how each week feels like a new beginning.

I hope everyone is enjoying fall!

this post is going to be a plea for help!

A little background:
L'oreal comes to BYU campus each year and hosts a competition.

It is called "Brandstorm" and each year they present us with a new brand
that we have to re-market, or create.

This year we have been asked to create a fragrance for Maybelline.
The competition starts at BYU, then goes to New York, and then the finals are in Paris.

Last year a team from BYU won the international finals in PARIS!!
So the competition is in phases:

1st Phase is: Research-we have to know the market, and also our target market
then if we pass that we move on to

Phase 2: which is where we actually create the brand.

So I need your help with the research.
I have attached a link to survey
it should take no longer than 5 minutes.

Just click on the link and answer the questions!!!

Thank you so much!!!!!
