First of all, I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year! We had a lovely time in our house, however, as per usual it has all gone by way too fast for my liking!! I wanted to give you a little update as to what I’ve been up to as I know I’ve been a bit M.I.A over the last month!
Firstly, I disappeared off to Prague for a week with my good friend Emily from school. It was so lovely to get into the Christmassy spirit and enjoy a good bit of exploring around a new city! I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was the perfect end to yet another intense semester at Uni!
That swiftly brings me on to point number two: EXAMS! Yes, it’s that dreaded time of the year again where I just want to curl up and hibernate and hope that when I wake up they will all be over! Sadly, that has not yet happened so I am battling on through. My exams will be between the 13th and the 20th of January so any further posts will be made after that I should think as I just do not have any spare time at the moment which is horrible! Between the sales and some very lucky christmas gifts, I have loads of reviews and product recommendations to write for you all so there should be some really good new content up here soon! I’m also hoping to do a few ‘Face of the Days’ with completely new products too so keep your eyes peeled!
Finally, I have been trying to get my career sorted, or at least get on the start of a path!! I have applied for internships at some of the leading accounting firms across the world, and let me tell you, they don’t offer those internships lightly! I have been through so many rigorous assessments and interviews that I don’t know whether I am coming or going! The two main companies I have applied for are KPMG and Pwc which are huge global firms so I am really lucky to have been considered!! For both I have had to initially submit my CV and all my grades; complete 3 online assessments testing numerical, logical and business reasoning; complete a telephone interview; attend an assessment centre, which I have done for Pwc but I am still waiting to do for KPMG. Thankfully I passed the Pwc one so I am finally at the last stage which is a face to face interview!! It has been a really long process with both companies but I am really excited about the future prospects and fingers crossed that I may get offered one of the places!
With all these things combined, I have been a busy busy lady and I am so sorry that this blog feels somewhat neglected at the moment! I promise that it will go back to normal as soon as exam season is over and done with! Thank you so much for all of you that have still kept reading old posts or following me on social media, I really appreciate it! Finally, I thought I would announce the winner of my Zoeva Giveaway on the blog too. The winner, Elma, has already been notified via Twitter and her lovely palette is sat in my room ready to post when I have a spare few minutes, but I thought I should let all of you know over here too! I hope you all are doing well and that Father Christmas truly spoiled you this year!! I will catch up with you all again soon!
