Hello there! Long time no see. It’s safe to say it’s been a while since my last post because as always life just gets in the way.
My last post was just after I graduated in November and in the last two months a lot has happened. I completed my first ever internship! I was lucky enough to do a fashion buying internship with Arnotts here in Dublin for 6 weeks and I finished up right before Christmas. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learnt a lot more about buying and the other side of retail. After working in retail for over three and a half years it’s nice to see what it’s like from the management side of things. There were several other interns and our main job was to assist the team with the SS16 Press Day. After studying Communications in college I went in knowing nothing about buying but I left with so much more knowledge.
Whilst I was doing the internship for the past 6 weeks I was also working in my current job on the weekends so life was a tad crazy for a bit. Working everyday for 6 weeks is very tiring but after a while you just get used to it. That’s pretty much all I’ve been doing since my last post, and of course CHRISTMAS happened. Christmas is my favourite time of the year and I can’t believe how fast it snuck up this year!! I’m sad that I didn’t get to enjoy the festive season as much this year but next year will be here before we know it. I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas spent with family and friends.
Now that I’m finished I want to get back into the swing of things with regular posts. I actually have an interview for another internship in the new year so I need to take advantage of the time off while I can!
Above are some photos from my life in recent weeks, from the Christmas market in town, coffee breaks in work, Christmas day, and the outdoors.
Hope you’re having a great monday,
