A Little Life Update


Hello my lovelies! For those of you who know me personally, you will have been let into a little secret that developed earlier this week, no, I haven't been offered a blogger book deal, nor am I jetting off to somewhere in the sun, instead I've been awarded an internship at a wonderful creative agency in Newcastle! Many of you may know that internships in any industry are few and far between, so I was absolutely overjoyed to learn that I'd be joining the team at Keltie Cochrane, where I'll be honing my design skills as well as growing my insiders knowledge of the industry. 

I'll be working 4 days a week in the studio, granting me a glorious 3 day weekend to unwind and recharge. The placement spans over the duration of 3 months, where at the end I'll hopefully (fingers crossed!) be offered a full-time position. It's so crucial for me to get my foot in the design door, as experience really is everything these days, so I feel that the mounting pressure to obtain placement has finally been deflated and I can breath again and actually enjoy what I do.  

Right now, with the run up to university deadlines, I feel as though I'm a machine, merely churning out the work demanded - meaning that I've unfortunately had little or no time for blogging or any social media interactions this past while. However, I have been working on something special: my very own logo! Please have a look and let me know what you think :)




  1. So so happy for you Hun! You'll have to let us know how it goes xx
