GLAMOUR magazine – leading the way to a digital future?

Digital has changed the way we live our lives, there’s no denying it. It is part of our everyday. You take a trip on the tube and most people there will have headphones in, staring at a screen (I’m normally one of them). Take a walk down the street and it will probably look the same. Most people have a smartphone now. We bank on them, they remind us of things, wake us up in the morning, hold important medical data, send us news real time, let us stream music & TV, allow us to talk to people across the…

Back to blogging basics

Oh hello again…   Excuse me whilst I dust the cobwebs off this site, it has been a while. It has been a while since I’ve spent time on this site writing. It has been a while since I’ve written full stop and you could say I have sort of lost my writing mojo. Working in PR has somehow knocked my confidence in my own writing and I couldn’t help but compare my work to the amazing things I was reading every day – typical me.

One year at L’Oréal – end of an era

One whole year at L’Oréal done. One whole year completed. And what a year it has been. It’s hard to believe I walked through those doors one whole year ago.

Leaving the structure and constant assessment of University and going straight into a global…

Placement diaries: building a future

So here we are, finally another placement update. There won’t be many more of these because I finish this amazing experience next month. Sorry what?! I have very little time left until I have to leave this life and I’m not sure if I’m ready to accept that quite yet. This year really has flown by. It’s crazy to see the difference in myself from just one year, I was a completely different person. I didn’t know what to expect from my first ‘proper job’, let alone a job at L’Oréal. The thought of working at such a beauty powerhouse excited…

Placement Diaries: Reaching the 6 month mark

So there we have it, 6 months down, 6 months to go. Halfway through the best year of my life so far. I’ve learnt more than I thought possible but it’s been filled with the best friendships, memories and learnings I will remember forever. One year ago today Thanks to Timehop this morning I realised that a whole year ago today I found out that I got this job. How crazy is that? A year ago my confidence was at a really low point and I didn’t believe that this kind of thing would happen to me. I spent any…
