Let's have a catch up..

"Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans" - John Lennon 

Here we are, pretty much a whole month since my last blog post. I don't want to keep saying sorry for breaks in blogging because I think it's just one of those things that can happen from time to time. But I'm back and kind of feel like I have the blogging 'bug' back & have plenty of idea's for posts too. 

I just thought it could be a good idea to let you know what I've been up to since my last post.

one - work, jobs, intern
The past three months I was completing a design internship with a jewellery and accessories brand, I seriously loved my time there but as it was located about three hours away from my house, I decided to turn down a job opportunity there when they offered me it. For me this was a huge decision because it was a job I loved but I just wasn't ready to move from home yet, plus a lot of other reasons to however moving was the main one. 

After saying no I thought I was going to have to start all over in a new place, interviews etc. 
But luckily for me the company offered for me to work from home a few days a week! I honestly can't say how happy I was and just how much I'm loving the job role. It's a lot of social media, PR design and even blogging too, so right up my street! 
I'm planning on doing a post all about working from home& how to keep motivated etc. 

I really do believe it's so so important to be in a job which you love, no matter what that job is or how you find it, just try!

two - a shop : no frills, just fluff

Working with an accessories company obviously inspires me a lot & although I love working for somebody else, I'm not quite ready to let go of all my uni experience and own individual work just yet.. hence No Frills, Just Fluff

For my final collection in university I created a collection based on Granny Chic.. think all things fluff, faux fur and pastel colours. With the collection I made bags, shoes and accessories to match, I also made a few pairs of fluffly earrings for myself late last year. When I posted a image of myself wearing them on Instagram I got so many comments saying about selling them/making them for other but at the time I wasn't to sure. Cut the long story short.. it's happened and I'm happy to say pom pom earrings have been introduced to my little Etsy shop.

If you fancy taking a peek you can shop the earrings here
or follow the No Frills Just Fluff instagram account here

three - life

The thing is life doesn't stop and wait for anyone, some days really great things will happen and other days you'll hate every second. You just have to keep going I guess.. 

I hope you're all well, &let me know if you have bee up to anything exciting recently? 
I also have a Instagram and Twitter account for Bird Bloom now after feeling slightly guilty about spamming my friends none stop with blog pictures on my personal account haha.. 

Look out for a outfit post later this week too!
