Last weekend I was invited down to Shumaila’s Beauty for a much needed (and much overdo) pamper session. Shumaila’s Beauty operate throughout the Essex and Chigwell area (just outside of central London) and offer more than your average salon – from the typical mani pedis and threading, they expand on this offering with microblading, laser hair removal, dermalogica facials and more. Of course, taking my pick from what they had to offer was not at all easy, but I decided to settle in the end on the LVL lash treatment.
When someone asked me the other day if I had a post up with tips for securing an internship, I knew immediately that it would be something good to get written up. These days – internships seem to be a direct route into a number of jobs. I was extremely lucky when it came to the whole application process and things just moved overall quite smoothly from studying, to one day finding myself in a firm. But I can’t say there’s anything particular I did to warrant that smoothness and in fact I think a lot of it was purely down to luck – having the nice interviewers, being in the right places at the right time, having a nice team on my internship, etc… Most of these tips below are actually things I’ve realised in hindsight after watching the process from the other side. I get a number of LinkedIn messages every week asking for my tips on getting an placement – so hopefully these can help a lot of you that may be seeking an internship or a job!
