Interview with Chloe Seager - Literary Agent


'you can't be what you can't see' is a quote that really resonates with me. from a young age, i didn't know the extent of the world of work, i thought because i loved reading and writing the only job i could have was an english teacher. i didn't see the world of PR, media, literary agents, publishing. and because i didn't see it, i didn't think i could be it.

so that's why it's important to talk to people like chloe seager.

Absolutely Fashion - Review


I remember the day I realised Vogue Magazine was more than fashion, and more than a magazine to have situated strategically in your room to make you look cool (sorry Vogue). I was on a train coming back from a weekend in Manchester, scoffing Nobby’s Nuts and drinking Dr Pepper, so pretty much the ideal Vogue reader.

why it's ok to lose friends sometimes

(pictures of absolute legends who are actually my friends. love u all)

i had this friend, that until very recently, i didn't realise actually wasn't my friend at all. we were two peas in a pod, friends from a very young age. we grew up together, went through school together, and it was only seven years since our epic fall out (a day marked with misery in my mind) that i realised that really, we were maybe never friends at all. 

and what a tragic realisation that was to have.

why you should never lose 'the intern' mentality


‘Just give it to the intern.’

‘The intern will do it, she’s over there somewhere…Think she’s got blonde hair?’

‘Just tell them you’re the intern and they’ll let you in’.

these are all real life comments that have been directed at me during my two year on/off stint interning in london PR houses and publications. this all sounds very devil wears prada, and may have left some characters crying and storming out the door at the lack of respect. but i simply continued packing bags, getting lunches, steaming gorgeous blouses worth thousands. quietly continuing with the job in hand, gaining respect from people as i didn't moan or complain about the work i was being given. 

and i like to think that i've transferred that intern mentality into my working life.
