Todays Outfit, Presents from Australia & Some Good News!

Something very unexpected happened this week; I found a job well, the job kind of found me! The other week I went for an interview & unfortunately I was unsuccessful, but they passed my details on to the manager of another store who is part of the same retail group and before I could say 'what's going on?' I was offered the job! So, starting on the 19th I am officially a sales assistant for a fashion concession in a department store! Unfortunately for my bank balance, the floor below mine is full of cosmetics; MAC, Benefit, YSL, Clarins etc, I wonder how long I'll be able to resist that for?

The same day I was offered the job a lovely package arrived for me from Australia from the gorgeous Tennille! Inside was some super cute jewellery, a nail polish that's perfect for the summer, a lipgloss that smells divine & an amazing blush from Modelista. I am forever jealous of those of you that can get your hands on Modelista because I adore their products & the packaging is amazing!

My make up collection had outgrown my make up storage long ago so I decided to treat myself to these beautiful drawers from W.H Smith. They were in the sale for something like £7 each so I thought I'd pick up 2 so I have room to expand because lets face it, that's inevitable!
Today was hopefully my last ever trip to the job centre, oh how I hate that place. I'm pretty sure I'm one of the few people that go to my local branch who hasn't recently got out of prison. Needless to say I feel pretty intimidated when I go there especially because they all like to congregate outside the doors for some reason, thank the lord for the security guards! If you're ever thinking of dropping out of University I implore you find yourself a job before hand, no matter how awful your course is because the job centre is no fun, especially in a recession!

This is what my face looks like today, silly expression and specs galore!

♥ Revlon ColorStay.
♥ Benefit Boi-ing & Erase Paste.
♥ Modelista Blush.
♥ ELF Mascara.
♥ Revlon Pink Pout Lipstick.
♥ Alva Lipgloss.

Even though the weather is miserable here today I thought I'd rock the bright floral look anyway! Excuse my weird pose here, my hips look blimmin' ginormous, and although they are, they're not THAT big!

♥ Floral Dress - Peacocks.
♥ Purple Cardi - George at Asda.
♥ Charm Bracelet.
♥ Floral Earrings.

    And I know how you feel about the Job Centre.. I work for the Council in Housing & Council Tax Benefits and it is so tough, especially at the moment, when we have so many visitors who WANT to work but can't find it, and feel very intimated by the whole experience of being out of work and claiming benefits.
