I brought the dress in the sale ages ago, only cost me £17 and I got student discount on top of that! I had been saving it for an interview hence why I wore it today. Its a lovely dress although it catches the wind quite easily and I am sure many communters did not enjoy seeing my knickers haha!

Im a bit unsure about my interview went. They were all lovely but I got the feeling they were a bit put off about my writing experience. I have done so much work experience on newspapers and feature desks at magazines. But I worked on the lifestyle desk on one magazine and loved it. Although I do enjoy writing I think I want to get into the fashion styling side of the industry. Writing this blog has made me realise just how much I love clothes and that I want a career in fashion. Hopefully they will give me a chance fingers crossed! They said they would email me sometime next week.

I was lucky enough to win a giveaway from Sarah. I was very naughty and scoffed the sweets before I had a chance to photograph them! I get a bit excited when haribo is in the picture haha! Isn't the necklace lovely? I am so pleased and can't wait to wear it! Thanks so much Sarah, the sweets were such a nice surprise!
Sticking with the theme of a giveaway mine closes tonight! I will try and announce the winner before the day is out! Good luck everyone!

Hope everybody's week is going well?
