Last week was very exciting; not only did I start my new job at Boden, but it was also my 22nd birthday on Wednesday! I went out last night with my friends to celebrate, we had a little party with balloons and nibbles at my house and then we headed out to Camden for a boogie. I actually bought this dress in a last minute panic on Thursday...I hopped off the tube at Oxford Circus and headed straight to trusty H&M! (I pretty much want their entire autumn range). This little shimmery green number was just £34.99, but I definitely think it looks more expensive with its structured shape and cut out detail - it's very "Zara".

I wore it with my black suede ASOS boots, which admittedly I changed out of at about 3am because I DID FALL DOWN, and also a skinny black waist belt. I took a blue leopard print denim jacket with PU leather sleeves out with me for the chilly walk home. My night ended with a hot dog bought off the street and the night bus. 

Dress: £34.99 H&M
Jacket: £10.00 H&M
Bag: £14.99 H&M
Shoes: £60.00 ASOS
Nail varnish: £5.00 Topshop

Enough about my birthday, now that that's done and dusted all I can think about is Christmas! I can't even express how delighted I am with my new creative assistant role at Boden; not only do I enjoy every second but I'm learning so much! At first I was almost worried to feel happy because it all seemed too good to be true, but screw it, I am a very happy girl! My first week entailed getting used to the company and office, meeting lots of new, friendly people, photo researching, creating trend boards, taking photographs, lots of printing, cutting and sticking, a little photocopying and I also sat in on two photoshoots!

I'm going to head to the shop now to buy something scrummy to eat, I do hope everyone's having an excellent weekend!
