Life Update | River Rose Boutique

Here’s my life lately.

I am a Sophomore in college. I plan on getting a nursing degree and with that degree I will practice cosmetic aesthetics. Botox, fillers, skin treatments and the like. If you don’t know what that means, it's one of the only jobs where people voluntarily come into a medical office to get poked and pricked by needles; other than being a tattoo artist, I suppose. So, I want to have a positive job, I want to make people happy and feel better in the skin they’re in. If that’s by getting botox and a facial, LET’S GET TO PRICKEN! 

A little background.. 

Jan 10, 2018

Today I woke up early 7:00am to take my little brother to school while I am still in Graham for winter break. Everything was going great, until boom, school deadline OVERLOAD. Somehow I was misinformed on the fact that I needed to apply for nursing school, like yesterday...

 So this morning I found out that I needed to be taking my TEAS test to qualify for nursing school as well as getting my application for nursing school and many other things in regards to the application process that I could continue naming but you might get bored. 

So here I am completely overwhelmed, on the verge of tears trying to scramble to get all of the answers to make sure I am going to get in on time. (TBA) 

Jan 15, 2018. I jumped the gun and am getting ahead of myself. All is well with school!

There’s also another aspect of my life. Money. Somehow I haven’t figured out a way to live without bills, so if there’s a way to do that, just let me know!

 I’ve been scoping out boutiques and other fields of interest around Lubbock trying to find somewhere to apply. I let my previous boss, owner of The Roost Boutique, know that a few weeks ago. Fast forward back to today as I’m eyeball deep in Nursing School Applications, Meningitis vaccinations and transcript request, I get a call. It’s my old boss. And this is what she says.

**Ring Ring Ring**

A relieved Braylea: "Hello"

An excited Abby: “Hey girl!! So I’ve been talking to a friend and her sister is opening a boutique in Lubbock sometime in March, and is very interested in you to start on this journey with.” 

I wish you could have seen the look on my face. If you don’t understand here it is plain and simple. 
I’ve been searching for a job, particularly a boutique job. I’ve had my eyes on a few places, haven’t “had the time” to get a resume to any (which isn’t like me). Somehow all of these people were talking to each other while I was praying about finding the perfect job and asking God to help me and show me what I need to be doing, I get a call, and I’m HIRED!

If this isn’t God saying he has my back, I don’t know what is. I am so blessed by this amazing opportunity!

Flash forward to today- March 9th, 2018. 
It's been exactly one week since the River Rose Lubbock GRAND OPENING!
 I can't believe this is all real life. The opening was an absolute success. We had so much love and support for our grand opening. But I can't say I'm overly surprised. This was not my boss Chelsea's first grand opening. She has two other River Rose locations. One in New Braunfels and one in San Marcos and now the third one in LUBBOCK. I was so impressed by her already having two other stores but now that I've spent some time with her, I know exactly why. She is one of the hardest working, sweet, positive women I've ever met and I can't wait to rock River Rose right by her side!

Reasons you definitely need to shop River Rose
1. Your Girl (ME DUH) is now working there and managing the Lubbock store. 
2. There is something for every body!! The store is so versatile. From a girly spring dress, to a graphic t-shirt, to the best smelling candles and goats milk lotion. 
3. The price point couldn't be any better. Most River Rose apparel ranges from $25-$45. Cheap enough to afford while still getting great boutique quality.
4. There are three locations, surely you can make it to one.
New Braunfels139 N Castell Ave. Ste. 100
New Braunfels, TX 78130
San Marcos 105 East Hopkins Street
San Marcos, TX 78666
Lubbock | 2110 Broadway St. Lubbock, TX 79401
5. If you can't make it to one of these locations they have an online website!
