New job musings…

So, I got the job!

For those of you who don’t know, I’m still at uni, and work as a nanny, as well as occasionally helping with kid’s fashion PR & sales. Having never worked in shop-front retail before, I’m diving into the deep end of luxury retail with one of my favourite jewelers – the famous Tiffany & Co. If that blue box and glossy snow white ribbon doesn’t make your heart flutter…it’s just so darn pretty!

I start TODAY, which has made me realise a few things.

-I shall have to check my nails daily for chips (who wants someone with scraggy nails handling their exxy goods?!), and bright summer corals saved for days off.

-Speaking of nails, I’ll have to stock up on a few nude, baby pink shades. Suggestions?

-Beach hair (read: salt-ridden, unwashed for days on end and knotted) won’t be as prevalent this summer. Unless I can find a way to seriously disguise it… No. I can’t.

-I’ll have to have a bevvy of quick and easy ‘fake polish’ up-dos up my sleeve…

-Nights may be spent practicing my bow tying… No one deserves a less than perfect Tiffany bow!

-Spare tights will have to be stored in the glove box and in handbag, because knowing me my ‘hose will snag on silk!

-Is it alright to rotate the same outfit all week? (I do it in real life if I’m lazy and I am seeing different people…. shh, who doesn’t?)

-Is it okay to have already mind-spent half my projected earnings based on website browsing alone? (Um, no.)

-Long wear makeup will take on a whole new meaning when the 12 hour pre-Xmas shopping shifts roll around.

Ah! I’m just SO excited. Wish me luck 🙂

    Congratulations! I love Chanel Ballerina as a baby pink nail polish. It’s very sheer but conveniently difficult to detect chips!
