Career-ing up for the future.

As I’m sure you may or may not be aware by now, I am an aspiring journalist and hope to have a busy career working within the media. This week I attended a Journalism course at the university of Nottingham, run by The Workshop programme – where hopeful young journalists were given guidance by some top journalists, tv producers and magazine editors over a two-day period. It was, in fact very helpful and the kind of advice we were given I’m sure will prove to be extremely valuable when applying for jobs or training courses in the future. I was lucky…

Nature's Finest Cosmetics.. The Soap Test.

I was recently sent a sample box from Nature’s Finest Cosmetics, as I am a big fan of lovely smelling products but it’s often hard to tell whether you’ll like soap over the internet. I’ve tried and tested (and smelt) each sample, so that I can give an honest opinion on what each soap smells like. The best bit about Nature’s Finest Cosmetics is that every bar of soap is around £2.50 which is great value compared to high street handmade cosmetic stores such as Lush and The Natural Collection.

Quirky Jewellery & Clothes @ Rose Clair

It’s not often you find a small shop selling both clothes and jewellery, which are only sold in small quantities and therefore the risk of someone else wearing the same as you is very low. However that’s exactly what Rose Clair is all about – it’s a great online store selling a variety of quirky purchases. I was lucky enough to review one of their swallow and pearl necklaces, which at just £3.50, is a steal. The detailing on the necklace is gorgeous, and due to its subtle colour – it can be worn with anything from playsuits to formal…
