trying to think positive.

I'm currently at a difficult stage in my life right now. Which all falls around my current work place. I've been there for two years and now is the time for me to end my professional relationship with the company. I've always been very careful to never directly mention who I work for, due to the social media side of my contract, but for those of you who know me, or have met me, then you'll know which company I'm referring to. I've never been more stressed out in a job in my entire life, and given that I'm simply an advisor, I cannot imagine what my manager goes through on a daily basis. To think I was pushing for a promotion, never in a million years now! I do not have a problem with who I work with, in fact I will be very sad to not see them on a daily basis. They have been the best bunch of people I have ever worked with and I will miss them very much. I am very nervous at the thought of not having a job over Christmas and despite applying and having interviews for three jobs now, I've yet to attend any because of my commitments to my current work place.

I'm trying to stay positive about the whole situation, I've never been in a predicament where I've been out of work, but given the current way my job is going, I'm not going to have a choice very soon. I'm going to try and use this time to figure out what I actually want to do as so far I've just been coasting through, flitting from job to job. I want a career now. Luckily, Craig has been very supportive through this whole thing, despite having his own work troubles. He knows he will be the sole provider for the house for the next few months, but given that he's incredibly caring, he seems okay with it. I have money saved that I will need to rely on for the time being, so it won't be too difficult. Hopefully I can find something else soon to help with the bills and take the pressure off him.

This is why it's been so quiet around here lately, I've been too stressed to actually do anything online recently. I'm hoping this time off will help me get back into blogging again! Silver lining and all that! Thanks for sticking around!

an evening with molton brown

On Wednesday evening, I popped along to Molton Brown on George Street for an evening of bubbly, pampering and chatting with other bloggers and the lovely ladies that were showing us all the beautiful smelling products. I hadn't been to a blogger event for months, so I was a teeny bit nervous again, but luckily as always, everyone was super nice! I was a bit worried about being a little underdressed, given I was sporting my usual get up of skinny jeans and converse, but, I was put firmly at ease by the lovely ladies that were invited along too!

The evening started at 7pm, I got there around fifteen minutes after it started due to traffic (#busproblems) and was greeted with a lovely glass of bubbly and a quick tour of the new products, including the new line for Christmas. They have scented baubles filled with shower gel and adorable Christmas crackers, filled with cute little products! We were also given a small sample of a delicious smelling white truffle hand cream that smells absolutely divine and also comes with a hand exfoliator too! I resisted buying though, but I can't promise that I won't go back and buy the set on payday.

After a nosy around the rest of the products, we were given a complimentary hand and arm massage with our choice of fragrances for the cream used. I asked for something that smelled fresh and sweet so the lovely lady used a beautifully scented cream of Rhubarb and Rose, which after the massage was finished, I purchased a tube of hand cream with the same scent, it honestly smelled that nice!

The evening was finished off by chatting to the rest of the ladies there before saying our goodbyes and heading home with our thoughtful little goody bag containing two mini shower gels, Pink Pepperpod and Black Peppercorn as well as a card to go back for another hand and arm massage! It was very well put together evening and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I'm not the girliest of girls, but a girly evening such as this every once in a while was well received.

Thank you to the lovely people at Edinburgh Bloggers for organising the evening and to the lovely ladies at Molton Brown for hosting us! I can't wait to come back for another hand and arm massage!
