How I got here

This is my first entry into the world of blogging and I’m stepping into it with novice shoes on. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Approximately 605 days to be exact -back when I was running the rat race, working 70 hours a week in Kuala Lumpur as an editor of an in-house eMagazine and internal communications manager.

Since then I’ve moved to London, settled into being a Mrs and pondered about what my next steps in life should be. Go back into the corporate world? I sent my CV out to many companies, only to be told I needed work experience in the UK as a requirement.

“So hire me”, I would say.

It was a very chicken and egg thing.

After redo-ing my CV and writing countless cover letters I asked myself “was this what I really wanted? To get a job writing out what other people wanted to say.

I started to cheer myself up the only way I knew how- by letting my fingers do the shopping online.

As I became best friends with the delivery dudes and my beauty products continued to increase, a lightbulb went off in my head. Now was the time to start my blog .

And in the words of Julie Andrews, start blogging about “a few of my favourite things”. So here we are. With my first entry.  I’m still new to this, so my design (or lack there-off) still needs loads of work. But I figured, I should just start now. After all, there’s no time like the present.
