Interview tips


Hello there everyone,

How are we all on this lovely Sunday night?

This post is going to include a few job interview tips for those of you who are you going through the tedious job searching process like me. We've all been there and done that when it comes to looking for a job and it can be quite stressful but once you've bagged yourself an interview it is your time to shine and most importantly be yourself!

Tip number 1: SMILE

On my past interviews I have realised how important it is to go into that room with a great big smile on your face, it shows the employer you're happy to be there and are a confident person. Even if you're not so confident - smiling will certainly help you to feel better about yourself as it releases endorphin's (those helpful happy hormones). So go ahead, step inside and show off those squeaky clean teeth!

Tip number 2: BE YOURSELF
I think it's important to always be yourself when speaking to your potential new boss, if you're putting on a "front" it might be hard to upkeep if you do land a job there. Express your strengths and weaknesses to the employer when asked and be honest about these - open up to them, they'll appreciate that. If you let your natural self show you'll be a lot calmer and relaxed and come across better whilst speaking!


When going for an interview I think it's best to make an effort in your appearance. I usually wear a nice blouse with a skirt and tights with smart black shoes. Everybody is different and has their own sense of style so I would still include some personality in there, I do this by wearing my favorite jewelry or having my nails painted in my favorite polish. That way some of you is still peaking through just that little bit :). Most importantly though - make sure you are comfortable in the outfit and it isn't too much out of your comfort zone as this will show in your body language.

Tip number 4: BE HONEST

When answering the questions be honest with your answers and don't make anything up - this goes hand in hand with BEING YOURSELF! Answer to the best of your abilities and don't be put off if you don't understand anything, they should explain if you ask them to. If you're not happy with something about the job role, working hours, etc. then voice your worries/concerns to see if they can come up with a solution like training to help you feel more confident in the role. This way if they do employ you - they'll ensure you are happy which should be their main priority :).

I hope these tips put your mind at ease if you have an interview coming up. If you're not lucky enough to have one just yet - please, please don't give up! There is something out there for everyone - it's just about being patient and waiting to find that perfect role (which is what I'm having to do!)

Do you have any blog post suggestions? What other subjects would you like me to write about? -- POST BELOW!

Lots of love,

Hello there everyone!

One of my Livingstone Daisies in the garden!
I'm ever so sorry about not posting as much as I would like too, I feel extremely guilty and sad that I haven't been able to! I honestly don't know how many of you girls and guys read my blogs posts - I could just be chatting away to myself though I don't mind because I love writing about different things.

What have I been doing lately I hear you ask? Since I've come back from Menorca (oh how I wish I was back there lazing around in the sunshine) I've been to a few various interviews, all of which are office/administration roles as this is the ideal sector I would love to get into along side marketing and journalism. The interviews went as well as an interview can go and I have had a work trial along with a second interview tomorrow with two directors of another company - SCARY STUFF!!
Whilst I'm speaking about careers and what not, I've started writing for a new online magazine called Screencity and have just finished my first article about ten minutes before writing this and that's been emailed off - hopefully they'll like it enough :)

In my spare time I've been spending a lot of time with my friends because the weather has been absolutely too beautiful not to miss! Me and one of my best friends Rosie have had a few shopping trips and yesterday evening her fiance and our friend Jack came along with us both to a place called Trent Lock. I live around 5 minutes away from here, it's a lovely place to walk around especially in the spring/summer seasons and is very popular with people who own narrow boats who stop off for a few days here on the canal. There is also a Golf Club with two golf courses, mini golf and a driving range so we all had a laugh on the latter! I would love to start going out more on walks and make the most of this hot weather.

I mentioned above that I've been on a few shopping trips and I might have to do a blog post to show you what I've bought or maybe even interview tips for those of you in the same boat as me? If you have any other blog post suggestions then please, please don't hesitate to get in touch either on the comments or email me at

Thanks so much for reading if you've got this far and I hope you have a lovely rest of the day whatever you have planned.

Lots of Love

Book Review - Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella


Hello there everyone!

Being as I'm such a bookworm as a lot of you will know if you've read some of my other blog posts, I have decided to start reviewing books which I've read. The first book I will be reviewing is Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella!

"It's all gone wrong with the man Lottie thought was Mr Right. Then out of the blue she gets a call from her first love. She decides it muct be Fate, and rushes off to marry him and rekindle their sizzling Greek island romance.
Lottie's older sister can't believe she's doing something so crazy. No more Ms Nice Sister, she's stopping this marriage. Right away! And she'll go to any lengths to do so..."

This book took me around three days to read (I'm quite a quick reader when engrossed in a good book!)

Throughout the book each chapter is told by the two sisters Lottie and Fliss taking it in turns, meaning you're getting two different perspectives and thoughts of each of these characters which is really clever and makes the story a lot more interesting.

Lottie is a very dreamy girl and her imagination can run away with her quite a lot so her sister Fliss is always on hand to bring her back down to the real world. It's very funny when Lottie goes off into her own perfect romantic world though - happening often during the story! Thank goodness for Fliss.

It's a fast moving story of love, hopes and dreams (on Lottie's behalf anyway) and also of Fliss realising how strong she actually is as a single mum after a failing marriage.

I would recommend this book to any of you who like chick lits and light hearted, funny romances! You can purchase it from many places though I have included a link of Sophie's official site here.

This book gets a 5 out of 5 for me as I thoroughly enjoyed every word.

Lots of Love
