I touched upon it slightly in my last post, but in case you missed that – because I’m still not convinced that anyone, bar my mum, would be interested enough to read my random ramblings! – I just thought I’d mention it here that, I got a new job. Praise the lord, Hallelujah, A-bloody-men!
Christmas/January time, unfortunately is a shocking time for TV work. Not many shows start production during/straight after Christmas and the shows that do carry on through the festive period are of course generally already crewed up. But, after the drought, I finally got a heads up about a job on a certain show last Monday, got an interview on Tuesday, and found out that I got the job less than 24hours later on the Wednesday (TV doesn’t wait around does it?) So, as of the beginning of February I will be saying goodbye to Jeremy Kyle (further proof that I am all class!), lie-in’s, endless shopping trips, time to actually blog and basically my social life, and a big fat hello to….
For anyone not in the UK, it’s a similar set up to Jersey Shore but based in Essex. For anyone whose never heard of both of those before, it’s basically a reality show following young 20 something’s in and around Essex. A lot of fake tan, a lot of hair and beauty…in other words, ‘it’s right up my street!’ (you know I’m never going to be able to say that phrase without making some kind of reference to Cheryl Cole!)
As a kind of celebration/farewell to my social life/good luck to myself (does that make me sad? 100% sure it does)….I may have gone on a bit of a shopping spree, followed by a massive feast (Cotto if you’re wondering – Bread, Spag Bol, Tiramisu, heaven!), followed finally by slobbing out on the sofa, watching shockingly bad TV (Splash – apologies to all my friends working on it – i’m talking about you!)
Here’s what I wore. A word of warning, this outfit features my first and only pair of trainers since I was about 12 years old. As much as I love them, I can’t help but feel like a bit of a tom boy, a bit ‘masculine’ in them. In other words…I look and feel like an absolute bloke!
Gilet: Urban Outfitters
Faux leather trousers which I don’t even need to state where they’re from because I’ve featured them a thousand times already (but I will, for the sake of blog!): H&M
Hi-Tops/the closest thing to trainers I’ll ever be seen dead in: Primark
Bag that was so expensive it made me feel physically sick to buy and therefore will probably feature in every outfit post I will ever write: You got it, it’s the Mulberry
