UPDATE: Finishing University, New Job in Social Media Marketing & Living at Home!


I have been wanting to write an update for so long but had no clue where to start. I'm going to write a whole post dedicated to university and my experience, because I have a hell of a lot to say. In short I have finished my degree and I'm just waiting on the results, I have around a month to wait and I'm already a bag of nerves! So what is my plan now? Well, I have been incredibly lucky and landed myself a job as a content director for a business within the field of beauty, which was exactly what I wanted. Since sharing my blog on social media around a year ago now, my love for blogging has escalated, the promotion and photography side are something I love and could spend all day doing. I knew from around Christmas time that it was my plan to get into the industry some how.

So currently I'm back living at home, which is fine, the plan was potentially to move into a flat that my boyfriend has bought, but with the prospect of being on my own all through the week I didn't quite fancy it just yet, maybe in a year or so I'll have a rethink. I'm in the process of adding some finishing touches to my nearly complete bedroom at home to make it all blogger-esque and pinterest worthy, that's just what I like. I'm taking major inspiration from Kate La Vie, her interior style is perfection! I recently bought my first car too, I have had my license for 3 years and I have been saving for a nice car ever since, so far it has been amazing having the freedom to go where I like and when I like, although parking is still a bit  a massive issue...

In terms of my little blog, well finally I have a new camera, I went for the Canon 700d after deciding that I didn't really need the 750d, and the olympus pen wasn't really what I was after. I'll be using the camera for much more than just my blog, so I wanted something that had a lot of features (that I definitely still need to get my head around). I'm hoping to post atleast 3 times a week whilst working full time, as my job will involve lots of time sitting at a computer, I'm making sure I give myself a break from it all and only providing content I'm really happy with. 

This year has been a real learning curve for me, I have gained so much confidence and I'm really trying to have the mind set that I should just give everything a go, and try my absolute best!
