WORK // I’m still with H&M however after covid 19 and working within the city centre It just didn’t feel right for me anymore. So I decided to make the plunge and get a transfer to a local store closer to home. If you’ve followed me my whole H&M career you’ll know I’ve always commuted for work. I use to enjoy driving exploring new cities. But gang, I’m getting old and I don’t need the hassle, haha. However I’ve been able to work in a range of beaut places such as – Nottingham, Coventry, Tamworth, Birmingham, Hereford. But now It’s time to settle in Shrewsbury. The next town to mine with just a 10/15 minutes drive. How bliss.
Another factor in me going to a smaller store was to be able to have a more work / life balance. Being a visual merchandiser already means I’m pretty lucky and I get to work Monday-friday 7-4. Which in retail is RARE. However working such early mornings and being on my feet all day means I’m very tired. so with the reduced travel time and working in the location I shoot most of my looks means I can now dedicate a lot more time to blogging! *yaaaay* I’ve been blogging for what feels like forever now. I can’t remember the time I did snap away at my outfits or plan new content. So with this new work life balance I’m hoping to work towards full-time blogging. However I don’t think I’ll ever go full turkey as I would miss human interaction way too much. haha.
I've also decided with all the time I'm hoping I'll now have on my hands to start a project of something which has been a dream for me. I'm currently on two weeks off work and I'll be making the first investment in the project next week and making some "mock ups" not to give too much away.But It's been a dream of mine but I never felt like I could do it. But being surrounded by so many creative girl bosses chasing their dreams, it's definitely inspired me to follow mine. So all I'm going to say is watch this space!
LOVE LIFE // You guessed right, I am intact. Still single. But you know what it doesn’t bother me? I’m enjoying dating and talking to people at the moment. it’s fun and allows me to not have to focus all my free time on someone else. However I do worry I sometimes let my career take over my personal life. So I have been trying to make more steps in putting myself out there. And hey who knows what 2021 could bring?
Apart from them updates I’m pretty much the same old me, I would say my style has changed and it’s so nice to look back on how I use to dress and see how little confidence I had to where I’m at now.
