I have had a full time job in the same company for the last 8 years and in two weeks I am going to a brand new company. It’s really daunting but I want to do a series of how a new job is like a palette cleanser for the soul.
I love the corporate world which is why my blog is and always will be a hobby but I also like sharing things with you all in my little space on the internet.
I want to cover all aspects of leaving the old and starting with the new and want to cover the following:
I have been wearing leggings and dress for the last 8 years. To say I am in a fashion rut is an understatement and I’m dressing like 28 year old me, not 26 year old me.
I want to be taken seriously, I want my outerwear to reflect my capabilities and my attitude, but also not losing my personality.
I will do a number of posts about which bloggers / styles really inspire me and any fashion wish lists I have or sorting through the ol’ wardrobe to show you outfit ideas.
STATIONERY / ORGANISATION
I love a fresh new notebook and stationery and it’s been so great that my new job almost falls in line with the Academic year starting so there have been some cute bits I have picked up.
I want to cover hauls but also how I get myself organised.
Of course, my blog is mostly beauty so not covering this off would be peculiar. I will be reviewing products I think will be ideal for working in an office all day and what I take with me in my bag every day.
I am actually buying a car for the first time in over 8 years so I want to share that experience with you. Best insurers. Things to know. Things to avoid etc.
And anything else I think is worth mentioning, like blogging whilst working full time and top tips on finding a new role etc.
I know this is very different to my posts from the last 10 months but I hope you don’t mind the change in direction.
If there is anything you would like to know then please do comment below and I will try to help.

Good luck with the new job, I always feel it’s the perfect excuse for new stationery too. I hope it goes really well.
If you are buying a brand new car get gap insurance too if anything goes wrong and the car is a write off you will always be paid out the original value of the car not its current day value! Best thing I did. Good luck with the new job it’s daunting
Change is great and hope you’re enjoying it! All the best in your new job! 🙂
Good luck in your new job Leah can’t wait to follow your journey. I’m a sucker for stationary too so would love to see those hauls

That’s such a big change after 8 years at the same place, in the same job! Love that you are embracing this change in such a positive way in all areas. And yes, clothing can make such a difference to how you feel. You go girl!
Thanks for sharing!
