What working at Zara/working in retail taught me

You can learn something from absolutely anything you do, whether the thing you did was a good experience, or a bad one. When I finished university I knew that I wanted to travel before settling down and beginning work, so I knew that I had to spend a good few months earning some money to … Continue reading What working at Zara/working in retail taught me

My experience with the Fashion Retail Academy

I'm really keen on a career in fashion PR or Marketing, but it's something I only became aware of/started to want to do when I was half way through my degree in Philosophy.

I'm still going strong with my clothes buying ban, but there's no harm in looking is there? Wrong!

I'm swamped with deadlines this week so I'm posting a blog that I've had sat in my reserves folder for a while.

What I wore in New York

S*** happens

It can be so hard to always focus on the positive, especially when it feels like the negative prevails relentlessly. Whilst I always seek the positive, I often struggle to not allow the negative to takeover, losing my rationality and thinking the whole world is against me. It's the small things that happen, that snowball … Continue reading S*** happens
