Work: This week has been a great one for me in terms of work. As you all know I started my new job last Monday as a database administrator and copywriter at Ashfords LLP and I am really enjoying my time there. There is lots to keep me busy which is something that is really important to me, as I am sure you will all agree there is nothing worse than being unmotivated at work. There is so much to learn about the company itself, let alone my job role, but I am learning new things every day and meeting such lovely people. Being a copywriter means I can also put into practise the skills I learnt at university, which is something that I haven't really been able to do until now. I think because I struggled to find a job for a while I appreciate this one much more, so in a way being unemployment for two months was a blessing in disguise! I am so excited to see where this job could take me and what else there is to learn.
Play: As most of my friends live outside of the city, I am waiting until payday to do my socialising and therefore this week has been a fairly quiet one. I met some friend’s midweek for some Witherspoon's fun which was really nice and I am seeing a good friend today to watch some soppy movies. Other than that I am saving the pennies and relying on social media to catch up with my favourites.
Fashion: Pretty much the same here as above. I have sold a lot on eBay over the last few months, so I have been able to treat myself to a few pretty things. Good friends of mine and Andrew's are getting married in April so I have bought a stunning, brand new dress from Topshop on eBay for £2.70! It’s a champagne coloured silk dress with long flowing sleeves- needless to say I am more than happy with this bargain! I will upload pictures after the wedding... I am also going to visit some friends in Cardiff at the end of this month and I have bought a second dress this week from eBay for £16. It's a copy of the Stella McCartney dress that everyone was wearing at the beginning of this year. At first I wanted something a little more colourful as by then we will be going in to spring, but this dress is a classic that I can wear all year round. Check it out here. It's brand new and the seller is top rated which is reassuring when buying from eBay.
That's about it for this week folks. I hope that you have all had a great week and I look forward to my next post…
