Working at COSMOPOLITAN: Week 1

It's been a while since I posted as my poor little Macbook has given up on me and is awaiting repair, but I've managed to steal my boyfriend's iMac so I'm back and right in time for COSMO :)

I've completed my first week at COSMO this week and it was so much fun! As I'm limited with what I can tell you, I figured I'll show you what I'm wearing and give you a few intern tips.

Apologies for the awful photo quality I'll be using a better camera next week :).

Favourite part of the day: Seeing their amazing wardrobe for the first time, I want it in my house!

Tip of the day: When you first start any job it can be an information overload for the first hour or so, don't panic, stay calm and ask if you're not sure, they understand it can be a lot to take in in one go.


What I wore: Dress: TU £21.99, necklace: Accessorise £8.99, tights: Primark £3.00, studded pumps: Outlet store on eBay £12.99.

Favourite part/parts of the day: Meeting the rest of the fashion team. Running over to a PR company to be greeted by a really cute bull dog.

Tip of the day: If you can't find anything else to do, don't be afraid to ask for more work, it doesn't annoy them it just makes you look keen!

Favourite part/parts of the day: The whole day! Meeting a professional fashion photographer and getting work experience with him after I finish at COSMO!!

Tip of the day: No job is ever too small, make sure you help everyone around you as well as the people you are working for as you never know where it might lead :)

It's been a fantastic week, I've learnt so much! My favourite day of the week was Friday being on the shoot, it was such a laugh, everyone was absolutely lovely! Although to be honest everyone at COSMO is lovely, they a such a friendly easy going group of people, I love working there. I look forward to being able to do more photo shoots and seeing what next week brings :)
