So you may have already seen, myself & Victoria from Style Marmalade were asked to style this houndstooth peplum jacket & this is my first outfit in full. I wanted to make all my looks quite different to one another, so I tried to put a different 'edge' on each one. As you can see, this is a sports inspired look. I wanted to show how versatile the jacket is & it's so easy to dress up or down. What do you think?

I have had one of the best weeks this week. It started quite slow, stressing about applying for jobs, filling out  loads of online job applications, trawling around the high street with my CV but things quickly turned around, I was offered interviews & after an almost 3 hour interview, I am now officially a Visual Merchandiser ^_^ & if that wasn't enough, after applying to be Sara's wing-man at Missguided a few weeks ago & after me being a complete ball of nerves in my interview with her on Thursday, she rang me on Friday night on her way home from LFW to offer me the internship! I can't even describe how happy & excited I am! I was so worried after being away in Spain for so long that I wouldn't be able to get a job/it would take an age to get one, but after just a week of being back home I have landed two dream positions! I can't believe it! I can't wait to get stuck in!  I'm sure I'll be letting you know how I get on at both places, hey I might even become one of those 'Instagram weekly' bloggers :O as I have jumped back on to the iphone bandwagon (it arrives on Tuesday, can't wait!) bye bye blackberry!

I have a DIY post ready & raring to go tomorrow, it's a really simple & easy one ;) & if that wasn't enough, I guest posted over at Stephanie Dreams today featuring some really cute pug nails, go & check it out, you know you want to ;)
