What was meant to be only a short hiatus from blogging during exam period unfortunately turned into a four month break from writing! This was unintentional, after getting out of the swing of things and after an extremely draining and stressful exam period I found it incredibly hard to bring myself to blog again. After hours and hours of revising I just couldn’t bring myself to sit down in front of my laptop and start writing pieces again. However, I’ve fully recovered now from that exhausting period and I am now a Law Graduate from the University of Durham with an Upper Second Class (2:1) Degree (eek! I can now put those letters at the end of my name).
So, a lot has happened since I last posted in my own world, within the fashion world and the world as a whole during my break from blogging. I have now officially moved back to the North West of England after leaving Durham for the foreseeable future and I am currently in the process of figuring out what I want to do with the rest of my life – other than watching Love Island that is. Since being home I have volunteered at Flare International Festival of New Theatre in Manchester, which was exciting. I have also carried out a weeks work experience at an amazing marketing firm in Liverpool, Agent Marketing, which was an invaluable experience as I discovered that I would now like to pursue a career in that field. As I yearn for the city-life and after experiencing what it is like to work in the two great cities of the North West, I no longer necessarily wish to pursue a career in London as I feel Manchester and Liverpool can offer me everything that London can but on a much smaller and much more intimate scale, which is what I like – I mean I did go to uni in Durham, which is surely the smallest city in England!
A great deal has also happened in the fashion world since I’ve been MIA. British Vogue has got a new Editor-in-Chief, Edward Enninful. I can’t wait to see what he brings to the publication, and I am eagerly awaiting his first issue – the September issue, nonetheless! We were given a taste of the coming trends at the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week autumn/winter 2017. I must admit I am a bit behind when it comes to the fashion world at the minute, but I plan to catch up and to keep up with it now that I’m getting back into the swing of things.
I am sure to post on my trip to New York next month so look out for that, and I will definitely post on any other jaunts I go on and any news/events that catch my eye!
