Life update: Becoming a Benebabe!


Hey gals! I don't normally dedicate posts to life updates but this one is a pretty big deal to me so I wanted to share it with you! Basically I am no longer an unemployed graduate as yesterday I somehow landed my dream job as social media intern at Benefit Cosmetics! So in two weeks I'm going to be moving to Chelmsford and working in the pink office that is Benefit HQ. I don't know everything that the role involves just yet but I do know I'll be helping with the content/running of social media platforms, working with bloggers and even doing a bit of travelling for events. Leaving uni and entering the real world is really scary so I can't tell you how relieved I am to be officially employed in a paid full time role. The fact it's the start of the career I've always wanted at a fun girly make up brand full of lovely people is the biggest cherry on the cake and I'm so excited to get started!

Getting a job in beauty, fashion or media is quite hard and I know lots of bloggers want to go down that career route so if you wanted me to do a separate post offering some advice (not that I really know much!) and giving you more details on how I got into it then please let me know! For now though I'd say be a dedicated blogger, take any work experience or internships you can get even if they're are unpaid, join a society/hobby or take on a position of responsibility and don't neglect your studies either as degrees and good grades only ever work in your favour. Most of all though don't ever give up, apply to everything and everyone relentlessly even if they're not advertising and take knock backs on the chin, it's not personal and the position for you is out there somewhere! 

Well this turned into a bit of a soppy post, but moving on I hope you all have a lovely weekend girlies! I'm off for a little weekend away in London with the boyf so I hope you all have nice plans too (I'd really recommended seeing the One Direction movie, sitting next to eight year olds may feel a bit sad but Harry Styles topless is just so enjoyable)...
