~~Quick mini update~~

Hi, guys, I’m back with a short mini update, I’m wondering about upgrading mu blog?!

I’m kinda what to become a proper professional, blogger and I was wondering with my current blog URL is it maybe jus’ a smidge long. I was thinking of creating a whole new blog. Something that is still very me, and part of this blog (I will never get rid of this WordPress, anyway)

I was thinking of maybe switching to a wix blog? Does anyone have any good feedback from them as a blog holder? Or shall I take the plunge and completely go self-hosted and with a suitable domain?

I really have no clue with this so, I’d really like some guidance!

HELPPPP

~~ 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!

♡♡ Exciting Parcel ♡♡

The other day if you are following me on my FaceBook page for my blog: @TheWolfnFox, then you will have seen that I had received quite a large parcel.

So all in all, I ordered myself* an iMac, it was entirely out of my back pocket, so before anyone starts “You parents bought it”, naa I bought it myself. The reason I built it myself really, was because it was so darn cheap. No lie, I bought a 21.5″ iMac for £668, thanks, Amazon.

The reason it was so cheap is because it was a refurb I believe, it was going to be around £800, but as Amazon was doing a deal for Prime members, I got 20% (ka-ching)

As being a lover of anything Apple, I really needed to buy it. My dad was like why? I said, “It will help with Uni work, and I’ll keep it downstairs for everyone to be able to use”. After I said this, he was thoroughly on board.

We’ve all wanted an iMac in the family and I think it’s a nice thing to have. It looks really elegant too, and stylish. I love that it is steel, looks so beautiful. I cannot wait to be able to have a proper desk area again and make it look really sleek and beautiful.

I’ve updated this to the newest Apple OS, OS Sierra. It did take some time to do this, however. I was busy backing up my laptop in the morning, then my computer arrived. Once my laptop finished backing up, I then had to deal with updated my MacBook to the OS. Then I had to transfer all my files to the iMac. It was a lot of effort.

I really didn’t get to play on my computer for a whole day as I was too busy trying to get all of that sorted.

But now that it’s fine and hunky-dory, I’m in love with it. It’s a great little addition to have and it’s going to help so much with Uni work. Also, it makes me feel like a proper business woman, and with my blog, I feel like I can do more. Like, I have a lot of emails to reply back to (when in fact I really don’t) – it just makes me feel pretty good.

~~ FOX AND STAR – ORDER ~~

The other day I was googling Washi Tapes, for my bullet journal, I came across many a website and I couldn’t decide which particular website to purchase from. Then I came across The Fox and Star (www.thefoxandstar.co.uk) they had many tapes that I was so desperate to buy. But I composed myself and I ordered two things from their website. These were some 2-way pastel pens and one washi tape.

These pastel pens are 2-ways are called Le Stylo Feutre – created by Iconic. This just means that they have 2 sides, one thick and thin nib. The washi tape is from the brand MT (Japanese) and the tape I purchased was called Label Watercolour. Altogether this order came to £14.15, which I think is pretty darn good, I’m a major sucker for stationery and I could’ve bought so much more.

Overall I’m really impressed with the website, I ordered these products on the 16th September and I just received them today so 4 days waiting I think is pretty good for an order. The brand is based in Edinburgh and I think that they 4-day wait is worth it.

Below are the images of the products 🙂

~~ Helping a gal out ~~

~~ White Out ~~

Hi, guys! I’m back with another post! Yesterday my mum, me and Joe went shopping to White Rose. I wasn’t really planning on buying much just maybe a few things from a few certain shops.

We first went into Zara and I saw two things that I really liked. One was a yellow slinky dress, the other was a blue and cream strapless jumpsuit. This particular outfit just didn’t really fit right and wasn’t too keen in the end. The yellow dress, however, was beautiful! I think it was £27.99 / not sure but I really liked it, however, I just couldn’t see me wearing it.

Then we moved onto other shops, like Lush and even there I couldn’t find anything to buy! Joe asked the ladies if they had the Guardians of the Forest, bath bomb. However, they did not. They said you can only buy that in Oxford Street or online. As that bath bomb is £4.25.

I moved onto Topshop and Joe went to look in Topman. I was more so just looking at the sale items, as they have a bigger store than in Huddersfield. I saw some beautiful outfits. There was a beautiful pink dress, again I couldn’t really see myself wearing it but it was A*.

I went through all the racks and saw these beautiful white denim embroidery mom jeans. I was in love! They were so cheap too! The size of the jeans was W30 and L30. I just really hoped that the jeans would fit me! I then noticed they had these silk shorts by Band of Gypsies on sale too! I was so shocked by this as they had practically just come out?

The shorts were originally £29, however, on sale they were £15! I got the shorts in white, they came in another colour which was a really light pastel pink.

Overall yesterday I just bought them two pieces of clothing. Joe bought a Kinect for his XBox, he didn’t want to come away empty handed.

My mum bought a new bag from Debenhams and some foundation for BareMinerals in Debenhams too.

For the way home, I bought me and Joe some doughnuts. I bought us two of the hazelnut Nutella rings, and a chocolate dreamcake doughnut too!

 

TRYING THEM ON!
