OOTD: A standout shirt

Top - Matalan
Skirt - Florence and Fred
Tights - Primark
With all of these OOTD posts recently can you tell I went shopping recently!?
I started my first ever job a couple of Sunday, working in a local tea rooms which tourists flock to in the summer (so lots of tips!) at the moment I’m in the kitchen washing up, mopping floors and at the end of each shift, cleaning the toilet *think of the money at the end of it!!*
Weirdly I really enjoyed it! I must say though, I have to keep up the pace. It’s so small in the kitchen and if I fall behind the place piles up with plates! I’m really pleased to have a job because I am only 14 and not many of my friends have jobs. I am saving a lot of my wages away for university, a car and all the grown-up things that I probably shouldn’t be worrying about at this age!

Also this week I had some amazing and ultra-exciting news! You may know but I really aim to have a career in the journalism industry especially the fashion department! There is a newspaper that goes around the county that I live in and I applied to become a ''community correspondent''. Basically they were looking for people to cover the smaller villages as they feel that they get left out a lot. So I went forth and applied to become one for my village and two weeks later I got a letter back saying.....I GOT IT!! I’m so so pleased! Journalism is a competitive industry and I am determined to get as much work experience and make my cv as good as I can possibly get it! So yeh...good news for once!
Have you had any good news recently?

French Exchange!

Becca, Poppy, Alexa and me.
In the boulangerie with everyone. George's face never fails to make me laugh!
Me and Becca.
Possibly my favourite photo. Just look at how hot it was...32 degrees to be exact!!

Very scared after a massive vulture landed behind us in the falconry show.

More delicious food!
Mmmm just look at those eclairs!

As you probably know from my last post, I have been away for a week on French Exchange. It was....hmm don't really know what to say. During the day it was fine, because that was the time I spent with my friends but they evenings were beyond awkward. Going to stay with a random family who don't speak the same language as me is way more harder than I thought. I don't want to go too much into it but I to want to rub in all of your faces that it was 32 degrees there haha!
Overall though, it was alright. Got a tan out of it so that's good!
Above are a few pictures from my trips around France. The culture is so different there. Mainly, how much they eat! I must have put a stone on whilst over there with the amount they eat haha!
Hope you all had a lovely week and are enjoying the sunshine while it lasts!

Whats in my travel makeup bag?

Really quick post for you all today, as I’m of to France in two hours!
Just thought while I’m packing I would photograph what’s in my travel makeup bag.
I don’t feel the need to go into loads of detail of what products I’m taking because it’s quite self-explanatory.
I’m going on French exchange and saying I’m nervous is an understatement!
Going to stay with a family who I have never met and don’t even speak my language is quite a daunting thought but I’m sure there be lovely and make me very welcome.
I will be taking hundreds of photos and filming lots of it so will update you all on what I got up to when I’m back.
Hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend and the sun comes out!
