Attitudes & Expectations in Career Progression

After reading an article about this generations attitude towards work, reality and general expectation featured on the Business Insider (Click to Read Here)  made me realise a different perspective of my generation and working toward a career goal. I realised that while some people in my generation have a despicable ethic towards work and carry their false sense of entitlement there is also the other side of the coin.

Taking a Leap

I have been extremely quiet on the blog as of late, this has been a combination of a lack of creativity and trying to focus my energy on finding opportunities in my work life. So a holiday in Melbourne with my fiancé to attend some family events turned into me missing my flight to New Zealand and starting a job.

Stop and Think: Personal Reflection

A lot has been going on in the last couple of months. I have been crazy quiet on the blog, blogging is more a hobby than something serious and life has got in the way. Between my last proper post on the blog and now, so many exciting and wonderful things have happened in my life. Today I am writing this post to stop and reflect on my achievements and milestones in this time.

#brunchclub Wellington Meetup February

The Blogging community in New Zealand is a tight knit community of girls and boys that help each other out, read each others blogs and share the bucket loads of knowledge about everything blog. So when I heard that there was a #brunchclub brunch scheduled to go down in Wellington I just knew I had to go. I scooped up a ticket and it came around fast by gosh I was so excited and nervous being the first on I had attended.

2015 Goal Planning: How NOT to be a 2-Week Wonder

2015 has come around fast and January has flown by. As my 5 weeks of fantastic summer bliss in the Coromandel have come to an end I thought I would write about my goals and aspirations for this year. Feeling recharged, inspired and energised, I have left this post for so long not because I think it’s important to think really seriously about goals and what you want to succeed. Personally I didn’t want to rush setting my goals, the famous New Years resolutions that leave us falling into the embarrassing category of the 2-week wonders.

An Interview with Vanisha of @vanishalifeunstyled !

I first discovered Vanisha after coming across her vibrant Instagram @vanishalifeunstyled it’s filled with gorgeous images of her style, travel, food, books and tropical adventures. Vanisha leads a busy lifestyle, is torn between two countries, and is an all action kind of girl. I was naturally intrigued by her energy and I was curious to know more about the sophisticated lady behind the photos. I talked to the lovely Vanisha about life, work and travel.

Opinion: Why we should NEVER be sorry

Trawling through social media and online forums and groups it is all to common for me to find girls apologising for their appearance. This has been a slow to rise topic in the year of 2014 with feminism and equal rights for both sexes being talked about at the UN and in other high profile situations. For me this is not OK. I don’t believe it is right that woman don’t stand up for themselves when saying something. By apologising we are not being affirmative, strong and it totally lessens the effect of the statement. It is a conditioned defence mechanism of the 21st century and it needs to stop.

My Skincare Routine: Au Naturel

A few posts ago I told you that I was going to share with you my skin care routine and what I put on my face this is that post! I What I use primarily on my face is the beautiful and natural Trilogy Advanced Skincare Range.I have a history of bad skin so for me it is to really important to look after my skin in a holistic way. The Trilogy Advanced Skincare Range is perfect for this as it treats my skin with natural ingredients, slowly fades my scars with rosehip oil and isn’t harmful to me as it has simple natural ingredients and not tons of chemicals.

My thoughts on Schwarzkopf Live Colour

The new Schwarzkopf Live Colour – New Ultra Bright’s latest colour additions; in Raspberry Rebel and Pillar Box Red have always caught my eye in the supermarket and my curiosity had been getting the better of me so when the lovely team at The Generalist PR sent me this tiny box of magical goodness I couldn’t believe it! it took me a few weeks to pluck up the courage to go through with dying my hair with this ever so bright Pillar Box Red, it was love at first sight ❤
