~~ New Job ~~

Hi, everyone! The time has now come to talk about my new job! I’m so excited to tell you about how I came to get this exciting new start in a job I have not much experience in!

So a bit of backlog, I’d been at WHSmith on the M62 for two years! I started back in 2014 and I was a timid girl that wanted to keep to herself. During my time there, I opened up so much and was more relaxed in having a job. I felt like I knew what I was doing when I got to work etc. But until recently I got a little tired of the same day in and day out kind of work, even though I was only doing two days a week. It bored me. But I still enjoyed working there.

I then decided to look for job vacancies around where I live, so I started looking on Indeed.co.uk / and was looking for places to work in these areas:

Brighouse, Halifax, Huddersfield and Bradford.

And as always, there wasn’t really anywhere hiring where I was looking. It sucked.

I then took a punt and searched in Leeds, and low and behold I found a new shopping center opening up. I took a look to see what shops were hiring there and I came across one for Anthropologie. Now I’d heard of this store before but I knew that it wasn’t anywhere that I could get to frequently. I believe the closest really, is in London. I live like far away from London (obvs) / However, I decided to go for it, and I soon applied for a job with their company.

A day later, I got an email asking to go for an interview. I was really shocked. I literally had no idea what to say. I replied back saying YES! I was really over the moon with this but also really scared.

For the interview, I wore a mustard turtleneck jumper from Urban Outfitters, I then wore these black overalls from New Look, and I wore these quirky socks that I bought in Japan and for shoes, I wore my very pastel trainers. I also wore my Forest Green and Pink Kanken. I didn’t really feel like I dressed for their store, however, I dressed to show my style and that it was fun and really unique.

Pictures of my interview outfit:

20160615_084914 <– I basically wore this black ‘overall’ with the mustard jumper, these trainers, and my kanken 🙂

 

I then had like the most agonizing wait ever. I was filled with paranoia, to be honest. I felt so nervous if I hadn’t gotten the job. Then a few days later I received an email saying that I had got the job etc. I was so happy. Honestly, I cannot wait to start working there and I love their homeware section. I mean I love their clothes and shoes, but their homeware give me life!

To be honest, I don’t really know the entire purpose of this post, however, it is something new in my life, and I thought I would share that with you! Also, if you planning on going to an interview for Anthro, just be your charming self and wear clothes you feel comfortable in. That’s what’s more important!

Bye Guys!

🙂

~~ 210 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF ~~

Now obviously this post is titled ‘210 Questions to Ask Yourself’ – so go ahead and answers these questions in your own way. Or go ahead and create a post on these questions for your other readers. I found this little array of questions in my magazine called FLOW, I’m not sure what edition because I’ve had it for a while.

Whilst looking through my magazines I saw this and thought it was another creative way to get to know me. // What makes you happy? Is there anything you regret? What do you want to be doing in 10 years? Answering the questions here is a fun way of finding out what really matters to you – or to a friend.

~~ Q&A FUN ~~ *100 questions

I stumbled upon a wonderful blog the other night, and that blog was: www.stormyweather.com.

She was trawling through many other’s blogs on Bloglovin’ and found a “get to know me” tag. / She states that you are apparently meant to do a minimum of 15 but, come on these questions are pretty good.

I have already created a minuscule section of this on my ‘About Me’, page, however, I think this goes more in depth, to as to who I am. Thus, I thought well this might be quite a nice, interesting thing to do. So, without delay, I shall get on with this huuuge questionnaire for those interested. Plus, I think it’s quite nice to know who the person behind the blog is.

How did you first get into blogging?

I was really undecided at first really, I thought about doing one years ago about books, or film. Now it’s just a compilation of all the things that I’m interested about

How would you describe your blogging style?

I think it’s different as I like to be fresh, but still shine through with my individuality. I like to bring my boyfriend also into the mix as I do mostly blog with him (about him)

What would be your ideal working environment?

I think this is easy for me, clean and spacious. At the moment, when I blog my room is hectic I would prefer it to be uncluttered and minimal.

How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently?

I blog when I can, like after working a 8 hour shift on a Saturday and Sunday I won’t usually blog as I’m quite tired from working. However, I do like to blog during the week, maybe twice to three times

Who has impacted you most in blogging and how?

I think this would have to be Joe, he’s been really understanding about how I feel the need to blog about our outings etc, I think he knows that it’s important and I like to remember what we’ve done on a specific day. Sort of like a diary. He also knows that I tell him all about the traffic on my blog he likes that I get really excited from where in other countries people have been on my blog. I find that really sweet.

How do you think I rate your blog as an interviewer?

Maybe a 8? Maybe I’m being too bias but I think that it’s diverse. It’s got makeup from a subscription box that being Glossybox, just going about my day to day life really. I don’t think that it’s an award winning blog, however I think it’s nice to have things to remember by when I’m older.

What do you do in your spare time?

Apart from working on the weekends, it’s mostly spent with Joe. We game a lot on the PS4 or on World of Warcraft, or even Sims. I think that’s mostly what our relationship is, just gaming and baking / cooking.

We also walk my dog together which is cute

What do you find the most frustrating aspect of blogging?

I think it’s trying to get noticed like I connected my blog with twitter however, it doesn’t get much. I appreciate any kind of activity on my blog. The majority of the time I get people from Canada or America on my blog and I’m very grateful for that! Thanks to you Canadian and American folk!

Would you encourage other people to make their blog?

I would definitely encourage people to create a blog, it doesn’t even matter really what your blog is about. It could even be just diary entries or letters to future self, it seriously could be anything. It lets you open up about your life, hobbies etc it’s fun. You can even see where abouts in the World you get traffic and for me, I find that the exciting part. I love seeing where people go on my blog, either that being the UK, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Poland. It’s fantastic!

Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?

I do believe that for now it is just a hobby however, if it turns into something more than that I wouldn’t say no.

Who was your first style icon?

Strangely, I think this was myself, from a really young age my mother let me choose whatever I wanted to wear, no matter how hideous it looked for photographs. She always encouraged me to be comfortable in clothes that I liked! Not what anyone else liked on me.

Who takes the majority of your photos?

This is easy, it’s me. I did a photography course in College and got Distinction, Distinction, Merit. This being A, A, B.
