DRESS: MONKI | NECKLACE, LEATHER JACKET AND BOOTS: PRIMARK
I finally have a free day to blog and update you on all things going on right now - and also the reason why the blog has been a little quiet- February has already been a crazy (great!) month.
Valentines day was a day I was dreading, well not quite dreading but it was definitely a day I was ready to eradicate from my Feb schedule. Ironically, it turned out to be the best day of the year. I first woke to find I had won Charissa's giveaway which was an instant mood booster, and as I went on to read my emails I found myself in a state of shock - a good shock, but nevertheless I was shaking with a huge grin on my face. This turned into a mix of panic and excitement, and then I didn't quite know what to do with myself or who to call. The email was an offer of the most perfect, dream job. I couldn't believe it. For 9 months I had worked so hard and battled with myself to hang on in there after my post-grad blues, and all for this perfect day - it had finally come, I'd finally achieved it! It all happened so fast... I went for an interview last Wednesday and was told my fate on the Friday. I start on Monday as the new Editorial Assistant at DIARY directory. The job is in London (YAY I'M COMING HOME) and so I had to work fast to find somewhere to stay as commuting from my parents wasn't a viable option. Although I haven't found a permanent room yet, I have found a room to rent for a couple of months while I settle in - this also means I have longer to look for somewhere I really want to live (although the house in which I'm staying looks beaut!).
I would like to take this time to thank the people in my life that kept me going. Without these special people I feared I would give up, but I am so happy that I listened to them and found the strength to persevere - someone told me the day would come when it was time, and I didn't believe it, but it was true. I'd also like to thank all of you for all your lovely comments when I've shown sadness or stress, you really are a great bunch. I hope I am good at the job and I am positive I am going to enjoy it because it's doing the things I love, in an industry I'm passionate about, working with lovely people.
This was the outfit I wore to my interview so I thought it was fitting with this post; it's also what I am wearing out tonight for dinner with some of my - now ex- colleagues- . It's been a whirlwind week trying to organise everything and say goodbyes to all my loved ones but this is the start of something new and I cannot wait to see where my new journey will take me. I may be a little quiet on here while I get settled but please do bear with me.
Love always xoxo
