Pause

27.10.15

Hey guys, unfortunately at the moment I cannot post. There are a lot of things happening in my life right now and I think it would be better that I stop posting for a little while instead of giving you sub par posts of lower quality. I like to think that I put 110% of effort into my blog, the plan is to hopefully be back to blogging soon.



Thank you guys for your cooperation

Hi everyone, with Halloween coming up I thought it was a time to get festive with my posts. I edited these awesome images on this online photo editing programme/software that is FREE yes I said free and it is called 'picmonkey' I used to use it for all my media studies coursework and for my blog images as it is easy and great to use.


You don't need to install or download anything to your PC/MAC, you can use this programme online with any browser. I believe you can download this on many portable devices and follow them on almost all popular social media.

Thinking About What To Do After College?

5.10.15

Hey guys,

I'm pretty sure most of you out there are considering either going to university or getting a job but here are other options you could take:
  • Gap Year - Plan a project/Volunteer (Gaining lots of skills and plenty of amazing experiences)
  • Employement
  • Study in another way
  • Study in another country
This is one of the biggest decisions that could alternate your life in various ways, if you want a career you can build or that you might want to consider going through further education and necessarily this does not mean you have to go to uni' this could mean you join different courses provided by other organisations.

For me I am a person who loves earning something, I started looking for a part time job when I was 15 years old despite against my parents wishes, but I knew that my parents did not save for me to attend university as well as for anything else. But, I knew it was time for more independency and to start looking after myself and be apart of the real world.

My brother and sister have taught me so much about life and what it is really like being an adult, my brother is 15 years older and my sister 13 years older so they know what they are doing!! But to get back to the original point it took me 3 years to finally land my job at H&M and I couldn't have asked for anything better to be honest.
But here is the glitch I could have tried harder to find a job, a job is important if you don't want to rely on other people for money - I hated asking my parents for money and when I was younger I was frivolous with money and didn't care, but you need to look at the bigger picture when you grow up. So what you need to do if your thinking of getting a job then you need to start by having a curriculum vitae, print a couple out and not just give it to some random person who works where you are applying - call the manager, ask to speak to them and say why you want to work there. And call them after a couple of days if they haven't contacted you this shows determination to get a job, but don't go overboard or it would seem your're a bit too desperate.

For me personally, I would like to have studied abroad if money was not an issue furthermore going to America to study was a dream of mine as my family is there so I could have stayed with them. Taking part in The Great Education Debate held at my secondary school, Finland has an impressive education system and it is free to study there as well. I also wanted to take a gap year to work on peace missions and health and safety issues in other countries. However, I am the type of person if I were to leave education for a while then come back to it, I would have found it difficult to adapt to the process of learning and studying again. This is something you need to consider when considering a gap year.

My Inspiration: Women

1.10.15

Hey guys,
So I thought I would write about the women I look up to in my life, now for this post its all actresses and models because I believe they have done great things in their lives and it's amazing how some of them deal so well with the media and the chaos of being in the modelling and film industry.


Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon:
Great women - I just love them because they are so down to earth and have made their career solely based on their profession and they are good at it too but also Reese used to support Avon Cosmetics which didn't test on animals and I love that company because of it and its great products!


Miranda Kerr:
She is just amazing - great mother, business woman and supermodel whoohoo!
I like how she is very well kept and healthy, she focuses on keeping the body and mind in good condition and you can see the results for sure but also I want to aim to be as healthy and fit as her but obviously not going overboard I can handle myself


Angelina Jolie:
She is an inspiration to all with her acting skills as well as her humanitarian work - she has influenced me so much about working for the UN and helping people who cannot help themselves. She is also beautiful and takes crap from nobody, but also the fact that she re-invented herself into a well kept and reserved lady


Cara Delevingne:
Jheeze isn't she a beauty - I like her because she doesn't care about what people think of her like all the time or over think much and that she doesn't like labels. That's it really I don't know much of what else she does apart from trying to be a singer and actress as well.
