In a last minute rush to find a good holiday book after I somehow misplaced the latest Bridget Jones' Diary novel, I came across a very interesting auto-biography 'The Vogue Factor' written by the former Vogue Australia editor Kirstie Clements. As successful business women go, Clements is the perfect example of how determination and motivation can really help you climb the career ladder. In 1985 Cements took on the role of receptionist at Vogue with very limited previous experience. By 1999.. just fourteen years later, Clements was crowned editor, proving that with a little (or rather, lot) of enthusiasm and passion, you really can become top of your game. In this article I'll take a huge chunk of inspiration from Kristie and her winning formula for success so that those of you that haven't got round to reading the book (which you absolutely must!) can get a bite. 

A Guide to Social Media Etiquette

I'm at that age now where I have become very conscious about what I put on social media. In my early to mid teens I had just discovered the wonders of myspace and facebook and (as timehop loves to remind me) and put it this way.. I wasn't always as cautious as I am now. Social media is not just a casual social activity, but a reflection of yourself. Don't think for one second that when you apply for a job that they won't check out your social platforms, as to an employer nothing will give them a truer insight to your persona. So to help you all out I have compiled a little Do's and Don'ts article, or a guide to social media etiquette shall we say..


How to get a job at Benefit Cosmetics

benefit, cosmetics, job, interview

One of the best ways to get the job of your dreams is to be well and truly prepared for your interview! Being prepared will not only insure you answer the questions with ease but will also make you feel confident, calm and collected on the day. The most useful things for me when preparing for my job at Benefit cosmetics was reading about other people's experiences. So I thought I'd contribute my interview experience and a little bit about the job for anyone who is thinking of applying or has a interview coming up themselves!
