So this post has been something that’s been on my mind since I started blogging it was always a should i/shouldn’t I situation. I do have full approval from my partner that I am allowed to talk about as this was something that happened before I was around, only a year before but still even though I do go through all the emotions and after effects with him I still wouldn’t write this post without his approval. Before me, my partner had two beautiful little girls aged 1 year old and 3 years old. It’s these little girls who unfortunately were murdered by their own mother someone who is supposed to love and protect them more than anyone in this world.
So here is a little insight into what I do for a living.
When I was 17 years old I started work at a petrol station, I wasn’t however allowed to work on my own as you do have to be 18 years old to work at a petrol station. I had dropped out of college as I wasn’t enjoying what I did, by which time my mum and dad told me I had to get a job as I was still living with them and was no longer in education. Time to start paying my way in life. For around 3 years I was a sales assistant and that was as far as my job would go I would leave work and that would it be for the day.
However, when I turned around 20 years old I had become a supervisor. This meant I had a little more intel and a few more jobs to do when I was going to work, this would mean whenever the manager was off work I would be covering for her so I really had to learn the job inside out. This is something I have been proud of knowing I can do it. also, this means I have the experience for when it comes to me looking for a new job.
By 22 years old I was working as an assistant manager. I’d shown I was capable and I was willing to learn more about the company and how to do things. When you have worked somewhere for so long you already know how everything works, you know the workplace like the back of your hand and what helps it grow and what will deter it from growing. I then had my area manager asking me a lot about when I was going to pass my driving test, this was so she could send me out to other sites to help open them up. Now for the past 3-4 months, i have spent weeks at other sites training staff up and helping open up a new store. I can be very rewarding for some of the people you can meet however you can also meet some who don’t agree with you. I have found being an assistant manager at a young age you can come across some of the older generations who don’t agree with it and they will not take anything you tell them on board. I just seem to get a lot of dirty looks from them as if they are asking me who I think I am telling them what to do.
I do have a love-hate relationship with my job. There are days I wish I could go home and leave work at work like I used to be able to when I was 17, now I can get phone calls when I am at home asking for help or telling me something has gone wrong. And then there are days where I love the calls, I love having that responsibility and being able to help someone when they need it. I have found days where I want to have a new job, but I would also miss some of the staff who have become friends and the customers who you know you can have fun with. The only thing I wouldn’t miss about the job is the difficult customers, anyone who works in retail will understand this, the aggression you can receive just for doing your job is unreal.
What do you do for a living?
My boyfriend had decided to surprise me with a trip to the Harry Potter Studios a few week back for my birthday. I have to say he did so well with this. He knows how much love I have for the films, so I was highly excited when I found out the day before, even with having to wake up at 6 o’clock in the morning having me feel like it was another work day. I had been told about the tour from my boyfriend’s brother who had been with his partner who is an avid fan. He mentioned how you are also able to try their butterbeer but really wouldn’t recommend it as he found it vile. Personally, I wish I hadn’t it really wasn’t nice. I’d just thought I would share some of the pictures that I got while walking around.
Let’s talk lingerie, more specifically bra’s.
Buying bras have always seemed something of a little be of a pain for me; I can never find ones that fit nicely and comfortably. I tried many different bras and stores, but none seemed to be right for me. I could find some that seemed to fit perfectly and then after a few washes they weren’t as comfortable and didn’t fit half, as well as they, did before they went in the wash. I was walking around my local ASDA when I decided to have a look at some of their bra’s they have in stock, see if there were any nice ones. Personally had tired one when I was around 17 but never gone back and after not being able to find the right ones for me lately, I thought I would try again.
I managed to decide on a set after standing and looking through them for around half hour. When I decided was still very doubtful that I would like how they fit, especially after they had been washed. Scared a little, I didn’t want to spend more money to find out that they were still no good for me after a week or two. However after having them around three weeks now, they haven’t let me down at all.
Price: It only cost me £12. For the set of Embroidered Balcony Bras. Which I think is highly reasonable for two bras. It isn’t overpriced, and you aren’t paying for something you won’t like in the end.
Comfort: Well this is what had me. The support that these bras will give you is fantastic. You don’t feel trapped halfway through the day, and like you need to take it off as soon as. I find them incredible if you are anything like me and you have long days at work. Even after several washes they still feel as soft as they did when I first bought them and they are still comfortable to wear.
Detail: These bras are relatively simple, but you can see they do have some detail too them. I don’t feel like a bra needs to have much detail unless it’s for the dress up in the bedroom or you have an outfit on that shows the bra.
Where have you found is the best place to buy your lingerie from?
My first tattoo was a little flower on my wrist that my brother and sister in law had paid for it. I had this done on my 18th birthday. I had become obsessed with the thought of having tattoos as I grew up with four brothers 3 of whom all have tattoos and I just couldn’t wait to have my own done.
I decided that my first tattoo had to be something that wasn’t too big due to the fact it was my first one and I wanted to get the feel of it first before I got anything more significant. So I choose something small and simple that still looked nice at the same time. I do however now want to add to this tattoo as I’m not as keen as I was when I first had it done but I couldn’t ever get it covered up with it being my first and my brother had paid for it.
I have decided to add this little section to my blog as tattoos are a love of mine and I always have people asking me why I got them or what tattoos I have. In total at the minute, I have eight tattoos, meaning there will be eight posts in this section, I’ll have a new one up every month for you if you are at all curious to see what else I have.
