30, Flirty & Thriving – Why Age Means Nothing

I just don’t feel 30. Is it because I don’t yet have kids so I’m quite carefree or is it simply because age literally nothing? Well, the latter tbh. I’ve been in the 30s club for five months now which is nothing really and I’m new to this decade of my life, but it’s so true that age is just a number. And here’s why… I change my hair colour all the goddamn time. In the last 10 years I’ve been blonde, red, an ill-advised brown shade which was so not me and currently I’m platinum/grey. I love it and I hope I’m always indecisive and switching my hair colour as I continue through my 30s. My love of wearing colour and prints us going nowhere. Green faux fur? Gimme.

Careers // How I Got My Job in Copywriting

I haven’t really blogged about my job before but with the blogging industry taking centre stage the last year or so and media type jobs, such as social media, PR, copywriting and blogger outreach becoming highly sought after careers, I thought I’d blog about my own career to date. I graduated six years ago with a Journalism degree from UCLAN and back then blogging wasn’t as wide-spread as it is now and I didn’t have a clue about SEO, PPC or that writing online could be a viable career! Eighteen months after I graduated and after a year spent working at Matalan’s head office in the Customer Services dept, a role came up in the E-Commerce department for a graduate Copywriter, with a knowledge of WordPress.
