Spending Friday night in bed with my boyfriend playing PS3 was the best idea I’ve had in a while.
Heaviest night in my new place tonight. A good mate of my housemates went missing last night after he walked home intoxicated. Up until about ten minutes ago, he was missing. We just found out that whilst walking home drunk he was hit by a vehicle and has been in John Hunter Hospital all day knocked out. It really just brings home how fragile life is.
Moved out into my best friend’s apartment with his girlfriend. Words can’t express how happy I am!
curvecreation asked: Hi beautiful. Sorry to bother you but I was wondering if you have any advice for how to get work in the pin up store industry in Sydney as I know you work up in Newcastle. Despite having begun to perfect my look and having a retail qualification, no where will give me a chance without experience. I'm getting insanely frustrated. Any advice would be deeply appreciated! Thank you x
You’re not annoying me at all doll!
Retail is such a hard industry to get into because no one will hire you unless you have retail experience. I was really lucky when I got my job at Catfight Collections because I’d been working at KFC for nearly three years and I think that was a good example of that I could work with people, in a team, under pressure in a customer service environment. I have Retail Cert IV as a qualification and when I write my cover letters I make sure I include that, then I explain what qualities/skills completing certificate has taught me. It definitely sounds that you’re doing everything right to get where you want to be!
The store in which I work in isn’t extremely look ‘pin up’ look orientated when it comes to the ladies that work there. We are expected to wear the clothing but each of the girls have their own distinct style. I really like the rockabilly look whereas another girl I work with likes the more gothic/punk kind of look, but given the fact that you’re in Sydney perfecting your look is really nessecary - but judging by your photos you have that down already girl!
I published a while back some tips about getting a job but my old blog was deleted. Some tips that I have always told people about chasing work is to always call back after submitting a résumé directly to the store manager and having a chat about what you’re after/what kind of position you want. The key is to be annoying so that you look enthusiastic, not annoying, haha. Calling back to see the progress of your résumé shows this, but don’t over do it!
If you’d like me to take a look at your cover letter and resume, I’d gladly do so.

Today I bought a bed, chest of drawers and a bed side table. I also got a really attractive guy to put it together for me.
