Dora the explorer

Three months into my london life, and I my heads crammed with fun interesting nonsense to share with anyone who wants to listen. Working at Amanda Wakeley has been such a mind opening and exciting experience, and made me thrive to carry on working and not go back to the dreaded library. But of course it has to be done.
Having Camden and Portobello market right on my doorstep are two of the biggest highlights of living in London, I have bought so many beautiful things, too many, and really just enjoy admiring everything, its not always about having it.
Yesterday I visited Hyde park for the first time, spent the day cycling around and taking photographs of anything I found interesting...which happens to be, most things. I have shared a couple of my favourites...the swan really was just a pretty swan.
Mostly my weekends have consisted of gin and tonic, making new friends, and creating some of the best memories, the whole experience has been such a once in a life time.
Returning home next week, too the dull Aberdeen where it will probably still be snowing on April 17th. But all good things some to an end, and hopfully this means I have more time to type.
I have recently started using tumblr so will be linking my page up to my blog for anyone interested!

The Big Smoke.

Wow, its been a while. I have been super busy recently and have so much to share, but no time to type! Life living in London is fantastic, and working for the talented Amanda Wakeley is even more FANTASTIC. I have recently started a marketing and e-commerce internship with the designer. My day involves processing the online orders (ie finding the order amongst A BILLION garments, which can be challenging), updating the websites stock levels and keeping the appearance lookin' fresh. Along with this I assist with merchandising  and have attended photo shoots, which are my favourite! I am learning so much and having a blast at the same time, what more could I want? I will be here until April and then we will see where the wind takes me. I have many photos of various things I would love to share but at the moment its TOP SECRET as the collection has not been launched yet (sometimes I feel I am working for the FBI not a fashion designer, its very exciting). 
Today was a tough day, 10 thousand pounds worth was sold on the website, and that means 10 thousand pounds worth of beautiful dresses I have to process! So I am very tired now but I will be updating this with my adventures a few times a week! I was also considering changing the name of my blog, as I feel now it isn't really only about fashion but more about my life in general (in fact that sounds pretty boring?) Any suggestions?
