MY FIRST DAY & MY NEW BLOUSE






















I started a new internship today with a fashion PR company, (a route that I'm contemplating going down) - I've been trying to get a job this past month but it seems near impossible for a graduate to find paid work in something related to their degree. I find it very unfair that I wasted three whole years of my life studying when it means f¢&% all my CV, oh and I'm now over £20,000 in debt, thanks! But any way, feeling sorry for myself aside, my first day was okay. It was a little slow as I was basically shadowing other interns to get the hang of the basics, and I was also sent to deliver samples to a wrong address which was rather dramatic :P

Tomorrow I'll be put to work in another department which I'm really excited about cos I'll be working with the "premium" brands and there are less interns, (which means more for me to do!). I will keep you updated and let you know how it goes! Just out of interest, is anyone else interning at the moment? How are you finding it!?

This isn't what I actually wore, ( I wore these trousers and shoes but with a metallic green blouse), but I wanted to show you one of my new blouses from Glamorous! The best thing about this blouse is the stunning laser cut collar. It feels so delicate and will add a subtle something special to any outfit....




Necklace: Asos
Trousers: River Island

  8. Seriously can't get over those trousers, you look amazing and I love the necklace! I am in exactly the same situation as you, like I can't even get a simple admin job because they 'need' experience. I've resorted to applying for jobs in retail which I never imagined I'd be doing after leaving uni! I'm sure everything will come right eventually though!

  15. The collar is beautiful, seriously love the blouse & the little crosses necklace too!
    I know exactly what you mean about uni, when I first applied for uni I needed a degree to get the type of job I was after, but 3 years of hard work (& debt!) later getting that degree & now it counts for nothing! It's really unfair & feels like a waste. I'm glad you're managing to find internships .etc though, they will be super useful & if you stick at it you'll get to where you want in the end! :) I personally couldn't afford to do any internships (living a train journey from London) & them all wanting me to work totally free, it just wasn't doable, so I ended up going freelance!

    And thank you. I'd be happy to help you but I'm just figuring it out myself, those pictures were my first attempts with the Diana.

  20. Great blouse, although I think I'd feel a bit exposed in it haha! This is why I'm going to try and get as much work experience as possible during my degree, it is definitely unfair that we're expected to go above and beyond just to get a minimum wage job these days! x

  21. Christ, I know how you feel. I'm a qualified journalist and what am I doing? Working in the butchery in Morrisons. HATE. It's so disheartening, especially since I can't move to London yet so I'm basically in the middle of nowhere.
    I love your tartan trousers. x
