How different one week after another week can be…


Last Monday, it was my birthday and I was getting up at 7:30am (5:30am GMT) to go on a boat cruise around Zakynthos in blistering 35c heat…. this Monday I’ll have an hours lie in, lucky me, and I’ll be getting up at 6:30am GMT, in probably half the 35c temperature, probably in pouring rain and then I’ll be having another fight with the wonder that is TFL.

BOO.

So yes, the reason I’ve been quiet on the blogging front for the past 2 weeks involves lots of last minute holiday shopping, Girls Aloud, packing, re-packing, aforementioned holiday, birthday, going straight back to work and The Ivy! I’m shattered to say the least! Going to post a few pics below of the events that have occurred and I’ll post more in depth blogs later – especially of Girls Aloud!

Back from my London business trip!


Well I finally got back last night… it feels like I’ve been away for like 3 weeks or something! I’ve literally done that much! I had an absolutely fantastic time. The work wasn’t as difficult as anticipated… and there wasn’t as much stress either! Infact my stress was firmly left inside Oxford Circus tube station (the worst thing you can ever do is attempt taking a full suitcase through Liverpool St Station-Oxford St Station at sodding Rush Hour!! Factually horrendous!)

The weather was absolutely GLORIOUS! It was a high of 17’C in Newcastle, whilst I baked in the sun in a mere 28’C! It was actually hotter than Morocco! amazing! I really really can’t wait to move at the end of July.

So basically, I worked at TOPSHOP HQ, Colegrave House, just off Oxford St. I was working with the Internet team and was given the title, “Website Content Editor”. rofl. so really, I was writing the features and blogs, 3 are live on the site now, and I have a feature focusing on the colour white, a feature on the ra-ra mini, and a 3 page feature on the Alice McCall collaboration.

I hung out with none other than the most ecentric Ross Hancock, designer, of Project Catwalk fame. rofl. he’s hilarious. but a really nice bloke to boot;o

Right, I better get my blogs sorted out! I have a massive list! hehe.
