How are you?
I thought we would have a little bit of a catch up chat today as I’ve been doing a lot behind the scenes recently. You all play a HUGE part in my life and I really feel like we have a little family together. So, lets dive straight into it.
I’ll cut the bullshit. Working for yourself is hard work! You have to stay motivated, constantly push yourself further than you ever thought you could, dedicate long hours to the cause, learn new skills and strengthen your inner tolerance for not throwing in the towel. I am 100% committed to making all of my ideas a reality. The book, the fashion and beauty range, the charity and whatever other ideas come up along the way.
I do have some bills that need to be paid (I’m Human too) so I had the great idea to find the perfect part time job that would enhance my knowledge of the world of fashion and beauty. I saw that Allsaints were hiring, I handed in my CV and I got the job. I’m so happy now that I have the chance to work with a brand that directly influences my style. The people are great and its so exciting to be working officially as a stylist.
Don’t worry though, I’m still going to be working hard to post pictures five times a week (or more). I’m also going to be posting a new blog post each week, starting a newsletter, hosting giveaways and starting a YouTube channel. With plenty more exciting things to come.
I hope you’re all exciting to see the next part of this journey unfolding.
P.s Welcome to my new website 😘
– How are you?
As you may or may not be aware, I turned 27 today (13th December) and I feel like I have already lived quite a thrilling life filled with experience – so, for today, I thought that I would share some of my wisdom with you all to hopefully aid you in your day to day!
No° 1. You will never ever feel your age
You won’t wake up one warm and sunny morning, stretch out all of your limbs, pull the sheets away and feel like a twenty something year old – you just won’t – and it won’t be any different at 30,40 or 50 either.
‘Age’ in general isn’t something that we naturally feel; In fact all time is (calculatively speaking) just a man-made way to keep track of the days, nights, hours, weeks, months and years.
I always find myself asking the question “Would a 20-Something year old do or say this?”. To give you an example, I cannot count the times that I have picked up my cat and made him dance to a song or pushed him into my partners face and voiced him saying “You talkin’ shit?”.
So, I had a conversation with a company this week to discuss some part time work – and one of the questions they asked was: “Do you have any tattoo’s?”
Now, this struck a nerve with me. I mean, I know that there is a stigma around tattoos and a lot of companies won’t hire people with them as it is seen as being against the traditional professional image, but come on… It’s 2016!
Why are people still being discriminated for having a bloody tattoo?
A tattoo is a personal statement, a reminder of who we are, who we were, who someone was to us, a keepsake or a piece of art we treasure.
