I started Summer under the impression that almost every penny I earned from my job would go into a nice little savings account for living next year… it’s safe to say I have completely failed at this task. I believe my savings account has a grand total of £0 in it, so that good. Most of what I’ve earned has been spent on clothes, clubbing, travel and food and I have absolutely no regrets. Below are a couple of things I’ve purchased recently, mixed in with a few bits my lovelyyyy mum bought for me too.
Long timeeee. This summer has been ridiculously busy to the point where days I can spend lying in bed and doing nothing are days I cherish. Not too long ago I received an e-mail from the lovely people at Joe Blogs asking me if I’d like to get involved in the new Legal & General “Things Worth Investing in” campaign…
I decided to do a week in my work wardrobe post this week! So, so, sooo – a bit about my job. I’m interning this Summer at a commodities pricing firm, I won’t go too much into too much detail but they analyse markets, produce products and reports – all that good stuff. I’d say the dress code is smart casual; I can’t necessarily rock up to work in jeans and a spaghetti top, however if I was to turn up with a bright pink skater skirt and a smart top, it’d be okay. I only work part time, which is perfect as it’s so flexible and means I can still enjoy my Summer!
Around this time last year, my search history on Google and YouTube would have been loaded with – “uni experience, freshers tips, university life” etc. I was talking to a friend the other day who is basically going through the exact same stage, and that inspired me to write up this freshers’ guide! I’m quite looking forward to meeting the new freshers and listening in to their awkward making-friend type conversations. I literally can’t believe the excitement is over for me and that I’m going into second year! I’ve split this up into the following sections: moving in, making friends, work, clubbing & boys and family. So just skip to whatever may benefit you!
A little while ago I was contacted by Shaun at Joe Blogs and asked if I’d like to contribute to Currys’ upcoming student cookbook. As random as this sounds, even though I’m not much of a cook (yet), I was actually pretty excited to compile this post. Mainly because I have never written up a recipe post ever. You can read up more about the Currys’ campaign here.
