Life Update

Hi all,

Long time no blog.

My life has been pretty hectic recently which has left my blog neglected. With that being said, I have really missed blogging and sharing my life with you so today I vow to post at least once a month (baby steps right).

I thought I’d welcome you all back with a bit of a life update, since a lot has changed in the last few months. 

Where do I begin?

Lets start with my work. I began working as a full time Beauty Therapist last Summer and it's been incredible. I absolutely love what I do and find my chosen career very rewarding. This job has completely boosted my self confidence and I believe that my skills are improving day by day. I’ve trained in many new treatments since starting this job such as; Hopi Ear Candles, Hot Stone Massage, Genie Take 10, Female Waxing and much more. The beauty industry is ever growing and there are always opportunities to grow and learn new treatments, which is another reason I love what I do so much. A part of my role in Clinic as being Assistant Clinic Coordinator allows me to create marketing materials for Social Media, which is a new found love of mine. I very much enjoy the creativity of advertising and have worked hard at creating new treatments and pamper packages for the business.

Just recently I organised a Giving Back Charity Party in support of St Barnabas Lincolnshire. The event was on March 22nd and involved beauty treatments such as Manicures, Facials, Massages and Brow treatments with half the proceeds being donated to the charity. I worked extremely hard creating posters and advertising the event whilst running my busy column in Clinic. I contacted local businesses for raffle prizes and received many kind donations. Overall, the party was a huge success and thanks to all the clients, my friends and family we were able to raise £420 for St Barnabas. This is a great achievement of mine and I am so proud to be supporting such an incredible and deserving charity who I hope to support again in the near future. 

The Clinic I work in has been taking votes from clients since September for our ‘Employee of the Year’ award. The ceremony took place in April at Branston Hall. It was a black tie event and we enjoyed a delicious three course meal, sat through an enjoyable presentation by our Manager and I can happily announce that I received the award for ‘Employee of the Year 2019’. I was elated to hear that I had been voted by clients, colleagues and my manager for this award and so pleased to see that all my hard work has paid off. I’ve been working in the industry for a short space of time however I am so excited for the future and to continue this journey learning and improving as a therapist. 

Just recently my boyfriend received the news that he got the job for the graduate scheme he applied for and I couldn’t be prouder of him. Soon enough we will be starting our journey into buying our first home together which is something we are both really looking forward to. He is studying International Business at Loughborough University and soon will be sitting his final exams. 
We have a holiday booked in July to Greece to celebrate our 2 year Anniversary and his University Graduation. So, you can anticipate that i will have fashion posts coming shortly. 

I hope you all enjoyed reading this little update and I can truly say that I have missed writing these posts for you all. Let me know in the comments how you’ve been and if you have any blog post requests as I’m hoping to write more frequently! 

With love,
