Updates- New Job, Trips & Confidence

I personally love reading life update posts and I don't think I do them enough, so here's one for y'all! I've got lots of bits and bobs going on at the moment so I thought I would share them with you. (This is totally inspired by Kate as I love her little updates). 

01. This is definitely the most important update and one that I've mentioned a few times on here already..I've got a new job! Since graduating, for the last year I was doing marketing for a finance company and let's just say it had its ups and downs! I'm currently having a week break before I start my new job as a Social Media Executive for a pretty cool company (it has a ballpit as a meeting room- so cool right?). I'm super excited for this new adventure (not to mention quite nervous) and it should mean in the new year Dan and I will move out at some point, which makes me even more excited!

02. I've been having quite a good time lately with visiting Canterbury and going to a bonfire night with Dan at the weekend and today I went shopping with my sister and baby nephew. The fun continues at the end of the week as Dan and I have booked a last minute two-night trip to Brighton and we will be off to another bonfire night when we get home (I can't get enough of them!). Brighton is one of my favourite places to visit so I'm excited to go back, any recommendations would be much appreciated! I actually realised that Dan and I have been around a lot this year; we've been to Norwich, York, Cyprus, Edinburgh and now Brighton. We do love a good trip!

03. I've been feeling a bit on and off with my blog and YouTube recently. I nearly did a whole post on this but I've refrained from doing so at the moment. I went to the Daily Mix Halloween party a couple of weeks a go and had quite a surreal time which resulted in me crying in my vlog. I think it can all feel very weird and overwhelming sometimes and you begin to over think things and compare yourself to everyone and everything else. I constantly doubt my content, photography and editing skills but then tell myself off; I need to enjoy it and not put too much pressure on myself. I need to stop comparing my worst self to everyone's best self.

04. I don't often talk about it much on my blog but I end up going to the cinema once or twice a week as we have Unlimited cards which means we like to see as many films as we can (we're both film geeks, having done it at uni). If you've watched my vlogs you would know we tend to go a lot! I've seen two films I've really loved recently and it's not often I spread the word, and they were two very different films. I really really loved Love Rosie, it's the most perfect British rom com and I fell in love with the characters and actors (especially Lily Collins). Another film I feel the need to rave about is Nightcrawler as it was just so creepy and unusual and Jake Gyllenhaal was insanely good. It had similar vibes to Drive, one of my favourite films of all time. 

I think that's all the updates I can think of right now so I'm going to enjoy the rest of my week off and carry on reading a new book I've just started, Cabin Fever, which is another Kate inspired purchase. If you fancy a post about my top five books then let me know as I'm thinking of doing one. 

Let me know what you'd like to see more of my blog...beauty? lifestyle? outfits? or a mix of everything?

  5. A huge congratulations on the new job! :)
    I also really want to see Nightcrawler! It does look pretty creepy and Gyllenhaal looks so unlike his normal dreamy self! Hehe. If it's anything like Drive, I'm sure it will end up as one of my favourites too!

  6. Aw congratulations on the new job sweet! I hope it all goes well for you!

    I really want to see Love Rosie but I'm really worried it won't live up to the book (I enjoyed the book so much - I highly recommend it!) but I'll probably just wait for it to come out on DVD!

  9. Faye, please don't doubt your content and skills, I have to admit I now prefer reading your blog compared to most other 'big bloggers and youtubers' as you come across more relatable and down to earth. Please don't change or lose confidence in yourself, you're doing a fantastic job! Xx
