    New Skills Academy | The Start Of The Nail Journey

    As you may well now from my latest post (and if you don’t what are you playing at? Catch up here, jeez), I have decided to take up the art of nails as a new hobby. To paraphrase my last post, I have been getting a gel polish once a month for the past year from the amazing Clare at ‘Prize Nails‘. I am always amazed by how she can create something so beautiful yet so unique each time.    I want to be part of this beauty.   And so I have decided to complete a course as my main hobby to take up time when I just want…

    New Job Update | The First Day Of A New Life

    Bit dramatic the title, isn’t it? It is the truth though. Over the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of changes in my life, both wanted and unwanted. Starting my new role in a new office with a new company was one of them changes. I woke on the 24th September knowing that my life had made a massive leap. I was out of my comfort zone and starting work in a completely new place.   Scary, right?   You see the truth is that your work does make up most of your life. Working is life for most people and I am included within these people.…

    Final Day At Work | A New Start

    What an emotional day. My final day at work before I begin my new job in five days time. It was a weird one because as excited as I am to be starting a new job, and hopefully my future career, I was sad to be leaving. I think if you have enjoyed working for somewhere for over a year and a half, that is pretty normal, really.   One door closes and another one opens   Leaving my job was that best thing for myself even though I was sad to be leaving. Due to my wanting to ‘fly the nest’ as people say, I was needing a full-time…

    My New Job | I Got The Job I Wanted

    Yippee! This is definitely a yippee moment! For anyone who knows me or has followed my blog at all, you will know that I work at a local paper currently as a Production Assistant. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do like my job and I work with awesome people, but sometimes it is the time to move on. It is definitely the people you work with who make your job what it is. I couldn’t have asked for a better boss and everyone in the office is lovely. However, mainly due to myself and Ginger wanting our own place, and also wanting to start a career to last me…

    BLOG UPDATE | New Category Coming Soon!

    I like to think of myself as a writer. ‘Think’ being the main word in that. I am not a writer but I suppose it is what I aspire to be. I have always done best in English classes and this is the main reason I chose to study English Language at the University of Huddersfield. Alongside, I chose a Creative Writing course as well. The writer in me. All my life, all I wanted was to be the next Darren Shan (you can read all my love about his books here) and so I have like a million starts to books or half-written ones lying around. My main problem…
