A New Chapter: Focusing On My Career

As you read this, I’ll be getting ready for my first day at my new job.

I’ve got to be there for 10am for a full day of meeting my colleagues, setting up my desk and getting to grips with the company.

I CAN’T WAIT.

Since graduating in 2013, it’s been a real struggle for me to find a full time job which I really love and one that I’m not doing “just for the money.” Throughout the years, I’ve been a waitress, a bar maid, a bookseller and a PR Intern amongst many other jobs but I have yet to find an industry which I truly love.

But then I found Marketing.

The Sunday Post #02

It’s Friday afternoon as I’m writing this.

I’m sat on the sofa, it’s almost 4pm and it’s still light outside.

I’m in my dressing gown, the one I’ve lived in since Tuesday.

I have no idea what’s been going on with my body, but I felt beyond exhausted, queasy and light headed. I think it’s a big mix of the festive period, eating far too much, the bad air in London and it’s just the time for my body to be poorly.

Hopefully, I’ll be as right as rain for this week.

It’s a big one.

I start my new job tomorrow.

New Wardrobe Addition: The Perfect Ankle Boots

I’ve developed a real love for ankle boots.

I’ve always purchased them from New Look, as they’re one of my favourite shops on the high street, they’re good quality and the price won’t make your purse cry.

Right before Christmas, I went shopping in Aintree Retail Park as part of a collaboration and I knew straight away that I wanted a new pair of black ankle boots, either from Next or Marks and Spencer.

The second I walked into Next, I headed straight to the shoes (v. unlike me as I usually gravitate towards the home section) and within ten minutes or so, I’d found the most perfect pair of ankle boots.

How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly Bourne

Sunday1

Published: 14th June 2018
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Pages: 368

Blurb:Β 

‘Turning thirty is like playing musical chairs. The music stops, and everyone just marries whoever they happen to be sitting on. Who the f*ck is Tori Bailey? There’s no doubt that Tori is winning the game of life. A straight-talking, bestselling author, she’s inspired millions of women around the world with her self-help memoir. And she has the perfect relationship to boot. But Tori Bailey has been living a lie. Everyone around her is getting engaged and having babies – but her long-term boyfriend won’t even talk about marriage. And when her best friend Dee – her plus one, the only person who understands the madness – falls in love, suddenly Tori’s in terrifying danger of being left behind. When the world tells you to be one thing and turning thirty brings with it a loud ticking clock, it takes courage to walk your own path. It’s time for Tori to practice what she’s preached, but the question is: is she brave enough?

The Sunday Post #01

It’s Saturday afternoon as I’m writing this and let me just say, it feels SO good to be back on my blog, creating content and catching you all up with what’s been going on.

I had a little bit of time away from my blog, two weeks to be exact and I really needed it. I knew that I’d be taking a break just after Christmas and I’m glad I did because it was so nice to fill my days with plans without worrying about how my latest post was doing.

But now I’m back and v. excited to share the upcoming content with you all.

So, where do I start?

*I should probably warn you now: this may be a long post with lots of photos…

The Sunday Post #52

Welcome to the final blog post of 2017.

I’m going to start it with some amazing news…

I HAVE A NEW JOB!

After 3 months of unemployment, I have a job to enter the New Year with and I really can’t wait. I had the interview at 11am on Thursday, met the director and at midday when I was back in the car with my Mum, I received a phone call offering me the role.

How incredible is that?

I’m going to be a Marketing Assistant, which is a role that I really enjoy and I can’t wait to get stuck in and get into the flow of the company.

Christmas Shopping with Aintree Retail Park

Christmas is the time to spoil your loved ones.

In my family, I’m known for being very organised and buying birthday cards/presents a good two months in advance as I really don’t enjoy the last minute purchase.

I finished my Christmas shopping at the end of November (quite late for me!), so when Aintree Shopping Park got in touch, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to treat myself to a few new items. I was very kindly sent some vouchers for a few shops; Β£15 for Paperchase, Β£20 for Next and Β£40 in Marks and Spencer.

My Favourite Books of 2017

Since I began blogging way back in July 2012, I’ve always done a Top 10 Books post simply because I love books, I love supporting authors, I love recommending books, I love reading and well, I love writing these posts.

Can you tell I love books?

I wanted to do something different this year and just recommend my absolute favourites of the year rather than a Top 10, so sit back and enjoy a v. good selection of books..
